did you take it to the scanner and double check the price? A few people posted that it was 75% off at the scanner even tho the tag was 25% off

I would have passed on it too.
I called a local Target I dont usually go to and the lady said they had about 18 of them and would be on clearance soon, so I'm keeping my eye on that

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Colorado Springs targets do not have ANY in stock. I find it hard to believe that these sold at full price. I was waiting for a price drop but I must have missed these all together. I would have bought 2!

Well, too bad. Just another exclusive I missed that I have to chalk up to either distro problems or to just missing it altogether. It's a shame though, cuz I really wanted this.

chalk it up to high pricing.....my closest target has one on the shelf and they are holding on to it at full price for all it's worth!

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Death grip. (insert pirate garr sound now)...

Dissapointing. I chalk alot up to just missing it in my area or something or another. I don't want to say scalpers, because I can't be sure that these are really fetching a mint in Colorado so the hunters that would be selling for profit just wouldnt make sense.

Well, I just wish this were like the EE thing where I got the Luke x-wing on Dagobah for 18 bucks from EE a couple of years ago. NOw that was cool. Wish I could go back and get 1 more, or not give away my loose one to a friends kid.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Didn't some fellow from the Target thread state that when they're looking to clear them out they either:
1. Clearance
2. Return to Supplier (purchasing credit)
3. Destroy

It may simply be a YMMV. Some Targets have clearanced, some will clearance, and others may just go w/ option 2 or 3.

Yer Mama's Musty V... nevermind...

I'm jealous, guys. None of my Targets even have any at full price (that I can anticipate being clearance).

I saw plenty of 'em around when they first hit, so I don't think it's Hasbro distribution problems. Maybe Target is just selective about which stores get the clearance goodies

I asked them why some had it on clearance and some didnt, they said it varies store to store on what is clearanced out and what isnt, so I guess the store manager or district manager makes the decision.

They told me that, too, but I'm too cynical and just figured it was a variation of the 'ole 'everything we have is on the shelves' line...

I have 2 of just the X-Wing itself loose for trade (or sell?) if anyone is looking for just the ship. It is fresh from the packaging.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

I still haven't opened the one I bought way back when they went on clearance the first time, but I swear, if I ever see them at $12 I'm buying up every single one. Space or not, that is a sweet deal.

I believe there is also a 4th option that they donate it to Goodwill.

Or punt it over to Ross like WM does... wait, That is specifically Wal-Mart isn't it... Come to think of it I have never seen a Target exclusive at Ross...

The last 2 Clone Wars Battle Packs were Target exclusives which found their way onto ROSS shelves.

Why not check your local Target? They have been showing up at multiple Targets in CA and MN. The deal isn't so hot anymore once you add $20-$30 for shipping...
Good suggestion, but actually I already did - none are left at any Targets around my area (checked computers). I'd happily take an unboxed set (complete with Wedge and ladders) shipped priority mail for what? $5-7?

If anyone would like just the X-wing from the set, I'd sell it for cost plus shipping.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

I have a proposition for anyone that finds any of these at $12.48. I'm interested in purchasing 2 of these. If anyone finds them, I'd pay $12.48 + tax + exact shipping, but here is the catch. All I want are the Wedge figure x 2, the Astro Droid x 2 and both ladders x 2, and you can keep both X-Wings. Anyone interested?

I work at Target and once an item is clearanced out (comes up $0.00 in the system), it gets sent to Goodwill. About the Targets clearanceing at different times, I'm not 100% sure how it works. Its whatever the system tells us, you scan it and whatever it comes up as is the clearance or markdown (15, 30,50,75, or 90 percent). Hence when we search an item at another Target store, the price states"Price varies by Store". My work clearanced these after christmas while one Target across town has 18 at FULL PRICE!

Local Target has 6 of these on clearance for $39.99, which is still too much in my book to pick one up.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Mine had them on clearance up until the other day at that price too. Then they suddenly all vanished. Not sure if they got marked down to the $12.48 price and someone snagged them all or if they got returned/destroyed/donated.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Saw these the other day at the 50% off price of $24.98. That may have been the magic number for some buyers. Might also explain why the two I'd been seeing hanging around at $49.99 suddenly disappeared. More likely than going from $49 to $12 in less than a week.

That store must have received all the ones meant for my area.
I've yet to see one at any price since release.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

apparently every target that had these in my area (about 4 stores) clearanced them all for $12.48ea, all of the 4 stores did it today and apparently I was the only one that didnt know about it.....Every store are now out of these....I missed out.....figures, I waited for months for them to drop and boom, all of them gone in one stinkin day.
