At my local Target they started jamming the end caps with non-clearance games, similar to his picture; so these may not all be clearance.

Mine does this as well. :(

Was able to find WWE Entrance Greats Bobby Roode Action Figure (087161369) for $9.58

 

Box was messed up but the price was...

I remember the days when wrestling figures were $5. Now $10 is a clearance price? Wow.

Inflation my friend. The Basic WWE figures are around $9.99 MSRP I believe and the Elite figures are $20+, I stopped collecting wrestling figures years ago but have several friends that do and it can be an expensive hobby since they constantly have figures coming out.

They are definitely not. I was at a Target recently that had that exact setup, some games the store wasn't even supposed to have in-stock. . .but none were clearance. It's just overflow restocks in their ever-shrinking gaming section from what I could tell.

Damn Sean Price's Target is clearance central! Would like to see what games are in the pic so I can start checking Brickseek for them around me. 

nOTHING new or that hasn't already been posted here,  i.e. Gravel, Bioshock, LA Noir, Shaq, ect, ect, oh and the 3DS games. 

Thats why I didn't post anytyhing since those have been for the most part already reported.. 

Going across the city to my Other Target NOW that has less traffic  aka better clearance prices and tons more stock

Gravel is pretty bad too...I can't recommend it even at $8.98. $5.98 or less...decent gameplay and PS2-ish graphics. And they had the nerve to realeas a season pass for that game.

It comes with a base that plays his entrance music. Originally it was $30.

Yeah, $10 for most WWE figures that aren't basic or the retros is a pretty solid price.

My target literally has an endcap that says clearance full of neatly organized normal price games then right next to it another endcap labeled clearance that is just 3 shelf/baskets of mostly clearance stuff and games that looks like a tornado hit it

Same at some of my Targets. It's odd, it includes games like Yoshi for Wii U at full price. Why are Wii U games not completely clearanced out at the point is beyond me.

Just price matched the Pokemon Let's Go Eevee bundle at Best Buy through their online chat! It says in stock at one of my targets - they don't actually have it tho, so I got super lucky.

looks like target.com raised the price back to $99.99. I was just going to try this as it appears a store near me has it in stock

Soooo many figures, they announce them months in advance and there's way too many. I think I've purchased two: Xavier Woods for my wife because she had a crush on him before... things came to light and a deluxe Finn Balor with Beast in the East paint.

Thanks for all of the helpful information. It was good to know that the bundle was back up on Best Buys website again. I was able to price match successfully to target using the above link. I used the zip code 13221 to show a target that had the item in stock. I don't know if that swung things in my favor or not.

I must be so out of touch with Pokemon now; after playing it for a couple hours the other day, we couldn't really figure out what you're supposed to do in the game lol. Is it really just run around one-shot capturing pokemon and dueling trainers? Don't like how they did co-op either since the other person mainly just follows around and is constantly booted from cutscenes and certain areas. Love how Reggie always touts Nintendo as being all about the experience. I must say, alienating the second player is certainly a unique experience to us! :roll:

Don't feel too bad. I have literally NEVER played any Pokemon game in my life. I have some in my collection from the retro systems, but I have never touched them. (maybe a waste of money, but I could always sell them at anytime) I have bought a Pokemon 3DS system in the past, but that was for my collection I had of limited 3DS systems before I sold a few of my collection.

 

Pokemon gaming does not interest me in the least.

Yeah, it has got to be close to two decades since I touched the games having only played the OG red/blue and I can't remember what they were like lol. I do remember collecting all 151, but that's about it heh.

My kids were interested in it and it has co-op so that can keep two of them occupied at a time. We will see if this is any good or note. I have a friend that played this 2 player with his 4 year old son and had fun with it.  As long as it holds my kids interest until Animal Crossing Switch. That one will lead to some lessons in sharing.

Pokemon games retain values

 

However Pokemon is not a good role model game as it promotes animal fighting  ( while fantasy the premise is the same )

Don't feel bad. That's pretty much what the game is. As you progress, the Pokemon become harder to catch. You'll have to use items, and better Pokeballs to catch them. The last Pokemon game I finished was Pokemon Gold for the Gameboy, and I cheated my way through it. I had a GameShark so I could get infinite items such as rare candies, master balls among other items. My favorite cheats consisted of being able to spawn any Pokemon in the wild. If you wanted, you could have six Mews in your party. My other favorite cheat code was having the ability to catch any trainer's Pokemon. It even worked on the final trainers. I just don't have the time to grind levels etc so Pokemon Let's Go Eeveee is light Pokemon experience that anyone can enjoy. I almost forgot. I also used the GameShark to unlock Surfing Pikachu in Pokemon Yellow since I didn't have an N64 to do it.

It's not a mainline game right now. It's basically a console version of the mobile game. That's why it feels so different than you remember it. The actual series hasn't come to switch from 3ds yet. Ultra sun and moon play very much the same as every game before with new stuff added.

Ah that explains it, well certainly glad we got it for $50 then since I don't see us playing much, if ever again. Haven't redeemed the Mew yet either so might resell it.

Its supposed to be a sort of a remake of the first generation games mixed in with the aspects of Pokemon Go to appeal to people who got into pokemon through that or are returning from it. They took out a lot of features and all future generations of pokemon in hopes of appealing to the more casual audience. So its not so much you being out of touch as it is being "watered down".

The current "real" games would be "Ultra Sun" and "Ultra Moon" on 3DS. (The difference between the "Ultra" versions and the non-ultra versions are some retcons of the story and extra content.

Yeah, neither of us were aware that's what the game was based on, though she did play Go for maybe a week until the free pokeballs ran out lol. It's rather disappointing TBH, because we bought Switch to dig into exclusives and with the exception of MK8; just about everything has disappointed so far.

 

At this point if they added a virtual store, I'd probably just end up buying old SNES games to play on it heh.

I really don't get the whole "Pokemon Let's Go is the mobile game" thing.

 

It's Pokemon Yellow from the Gameboy days built in the Sun and Moon engine. The catching part looks like Pokemon Go and some advanced elements like abilities and held items are disabled, but everything else is the same as any other mainline game. Most complaints come from being the Kanto story again, not having areas added for the Fire Red and Leaf Green, not looking like Breath of the Wild, and that it even dares to interact with a cell phone game.
