So in case anyone wants to check their's, it's a bargain! Too bad mine didn't have much left, but looked like ALL ROC merch was half off what they were last week.

The Wal-marts in my area don't have much on the pegs and are still $5.00. The Targets jumped back up to $7.88.

Maybe my local Wal is just clearing out the little they have left. But anything that was ROC was red tagged in half. Too bad nothing really good was left. Although, $5 has been a good deal considering figure prices. The Marvel stuff is over $8! WTF is up with that?

In theory, Hasbro only wants stores to have one MRSP at 7.99 for GI Joe, Star Wars, and Marvel. Discounts and price ranges are at the retailers discretion. I can choke it down for SW and Marvel, being they are licensed and the Mouse and Flannel Man get their cuts, but GI Joe is a house brand, so it should be a $1-2 lower just on principle of no license fee.

I passed on a City Strike, Red Fang Ninja, Black Adder, etc today at $5. I'm done basically. I might just might reimburse some one if they pick up a Heavy Duty (in the green fatigues).

I have a loose HD in green fatigues. I'm still not sure if I'm going to do anything with him, but if I decide to get rid of him, I'll let you know...

Same case in Albany, GA as of yesterday. If they do hit $2.50 I'll get all the neovipers they have as well as a random sampling of whatever else.
