I found a few that the employees wanted first (they did not know about the dots) then started to pick out all the ones I was missing. From the register I hear the dreaded words "HOW MUCH!!! This can't be right" from the cashier. They were ringing up at $4.49 each. The manager was surprised and found that they raised the price last night. Needless to say, I put them back (except for the 2 fisherman which at BOGO was not bad)

Also they are online at TRU for $2.99 (thanks ToysNBricks for the info) BUT you can only BOGO one and it is not a free shipping item.

4.49 >:( well don't worry , I think they'll be available at a decent price down the road...you can still get a case of series 2 for 120 even now , so hopefully will be the same with series 3 later.

Stopped into two TRUs today here in the Los Angeles area and they've bumped the prices up to $3.99 apiece. Except for the Van Nuys store. They're $4.99 apiece there.

Found a case at the Meijer store in Milford, OH. Priced at $1.99 and today you get 15% off for using your Meijer mastercard. Hopefully I get some good ones (I haven't checked the "codes" yet.)

Series 3 (not 2) was marked at $1.99? Think that's the first I've heard of it being any less than $2.99, if that's true.

They were 1.99 at Fred Meyer when they first appeared in the Pacific Northwest.

Yep, series 3 was $1.99 at Meijer. They had series 2 figures there, too, for the same price. Maybe they haven't raised them yet.

These are now available on their website for 3.99. I'm not saying you should buy them, just letting you know they're in stock. Also, the correct item number is listed there as well.

eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

I found some in stores for $3.99 as well, why do you do this TRU?

Indeed they can... but they won't get any more business from me. I'll be patient and get my minifigures from the Lego Store in the future.

Very true. I got my set at that price. However, they pulled a case out of the back for me, before they even had them on the shelf, so they may have just still had the pricing from last time in the system. I have since heard that Fred Meyer is selling them for $2.99, too.

So after sorting through a full case I have made some revisions to the original cheat sheet. The original was a great starting point but I think it needed some clarifications. Please give feedback on this one and see if it helps ID the figures any easier. Enjoy!

Boy, I wish I had that today. I finally found Series 3 at TRU... $3.99 each. Yeah right. I went through with the original cheat sheet I made and found it to be maddeningly unhelpful. I was able to single out a cyborg and rapper, but couldn't find any Elves. Of course, I'll take my chances with ordering the rest on S@H, since I've got some built-up rewards money to offset the shipping. I just wanted to make sure I got the ones I wanted most.

I currently only have one series 3 minifig the Baseball Player. My package has the embedded number as 238B0 not S38B0. There is a dot missing from the cheat sheet for the Baseball Player. The dot is touching the bottom right of the 0 in the embedded number. Hope this helps!

They had 3 cases at the TRU in Yuba City CA. Those cases are now short two fishermen and two elves. I'm not sure how many were in those cases before I arrived. I may have missed a couple of them.

Yeah, the number is kind of generic based on many of the packs I have found. I have seen one other number, but I assume it will vary some with production lots. I mostly included them as a general reference. I'll check the baseball players I have and see if I can match up what you are describing. Also, here is the "most" up to date one I've done. It varies from the one posted slightly and I think is more accurate yet. You may want to link to this one instead. I just kept the first up for comparison. Let me know what you think here or on the Flickr page. Thanks!

There are 50+ cases sitting at my local TRU. Been sitting there for almost 2 weeks now.

My local Meijer still has S3 figs priced at $1.99 in their stocking stuffer aisle. Unfortunately all we found was the empty box this time. :(

My local TRU has lowered their price of Series 3 to the MSRP of $2.99. I'm not sure when the price officially went down but the same amount of boxes as 2 weeks ago are still sitting on the shelves.
