Unfortunately I spotted this way too late. Jabba's Palace is long gone, and I phoned the two brand stores close to me and they were sold out too.
* Update *
So get this. As mentioned in my prior post, I had phoned [email protected]
CS on tuesday afternoon and was thoroughly bummed out that these were sold out. The guy I spoke with had said he checked and said his system was showing none left.
I happened to notice on Wednesday that this set had not disappeared from the site and the listing did not say "sold out". It still said "call to check availability". Hmmm... odd. I decided to phone again that day on a just-in-case hail mary play. The lady I spoke to that time said she didn't know for certain if there were any left, just that there may be "really low stock levels". The system allowed her to place the order for me, and she said I'd have to wait to see if it filled.
I had been anxiously watching the order status over the last couple days where it had an "in progress" or "customer service" status listed. Anyway this morning I was delighted to receive... a SHIPPED notice!!
I know 20% off is not a super deal or anything. I'm sure people have done better in the past on that set, and I had passed on 20% deals similarly before (at amazon.ca, TRU, etc.). But for this purchase I'm getting 20% and (because its from [email protected]
) there's VIP points and the martian manhunter promo figure too. Not too shabby.
Hopefully others here have had similar luck trying to get whatever clearance sets they were trying to score.
