UPDATE: TVC Old Stock Purge?

We received word from our friend Chris “HothIcePlanet” that Target is planning to facilitate the restocking of their Vintage Collection by purging select figures, mostly from waves 1 and 2, from their pegs. Hopefully this will clear the distribution log jam and get new product to the pegs.

For more on this, you can listen to Chris on The Sarlacc Pit Podcast over on GalacticBinder later this week.

UPDATE: Our friends at Jedi Temple Archives are reporting a similar action at Walmart. Head on over for their report.

Target Deluxe Markdowns

Target is resetting their aisle this week and in order to clear out existing product, they are quietly clearancing the previous DPCI/SKU (087-06-1402) for the Deluxe Vehicle with Figure sets to make way for the new Class I/Rapid Strike Vehicle DPCI/SKU. Last night I found the Y-Wing Scout Bomber and Republic Scout Speeder for $5.08 a pieces while their case mates – the Naboo Skiff and Cad Bane Speeder Bike (in new packaging) rang out at full price. It might be worth a trip to the Price Scanner to see if your store is doing the same thing!
