Was getting some birthday gifts for a couple kids this weekend and noticed a massive clearance on most DC product. Unfortunately, the one Target only had six Eclipsos from DCUC12, but I managed to snag a Batman Legacy Catwoman at another Target for $5.97! I would've never bought her for the $18.99 that was shown as the "original" price, but for $6? Sure, why not?

They were still sitting on a few of the 6" Young Justice figures (there was definitely a Superboy and I think a Sportsmaster), and there was also about eight pegs with Toyman available. I don't think the $6 pricetag is gonna get those guys to move any faster, to be honest - there's just too many of them.

So check your Targets - you might get a decent deal.

Out of curiosity, what is the clearance price on the DCUC figures?

The Targets in my area only have the 6 inch Young Justice figures on clearance and that's about it. Batman Legacy is long gone and the 4 inch figures went up in price to $10.99. The DCUC figures are still scanning at their regular price.

Looks like I waited too long and missed my chance to get white suit Superboy.
I could only find a bunch of Artemis and Sportsmasters at $6. I gambled and waited on the price drop for Superboy and missed out, but I'm going to keep looking. I pulled my hair out for months looking for Sportsmaster and yesterday I see about 8 of them for $6. grumble.
I didn't see a single Batman Legacy figure. DC Universe Classics are not on sale, unfortunately, otherwise I'd pick some up.

I honestly don't remember the DCUC price. I don't need any, so I didn't look too closely. I just remember seeing an orange sticker on them. Sorry.

Different stores seem to be handling this "clearance" a bit differently it seems.

One of my local stores has clearanced out the YJ 6" figures at about $11 each (I forget specifics at this point as I haven't bought any of it) but the DCUC, YJ 4", and whatever else remains unchanged.

Another local store seems to have taken away everything that isn't Batman, but it isn't on the shelves currently. It was just moved to the back (as I found out by punching in the DCPI into the scanner) and won't come back out until the new planogram goes into effect with a "clearance" aisle ...

Many of my local Targets have also gone back to putting out those stupid signs that say they won't be checking in the back for "collectible" merchandise so don't bother asking. :roll:

At least there isn't anything out now (or due soon) that I am interested in buying.






... until the new Action League figures start to show their little heads...

Same here/

young Justice is still at $9.99 with Superboy x2, Capt atom x2 Vandall Savage x2

DCUC Orange Luthoer and Cyclone still full priced

no Batman Legacy and no 6" YJ

I find it funny that the excuses are that oil is going up in price and thats the reason for the increase in figures. And yet the new Batman movie toys are $4.99 and cant keep em on the shelves

Wow-- you must live somewhere near Gotham- because all around me are full pegs- with no one touching those things at all...some stores have the same amount from the day they put them out 2 weeks ago.

Nothing to write home about at my local Target. In fact, the 4 inch YJ were $10.69 each.

I got a lucky break today. I went in to a Target looking for a $6 YJ Superboy (time to admit defeat on that one, I think) and I found a Bat Legacy Prototype Batman/ Commissioner Gordon 2-Pack for $9.58. That felt good because the DK Rises Gordon is going for $30-40 on ebay right now and my Walmart isn't even stocking DK stuff.
