I was just at Goodwill and spotted 3-packs for 49 cents each. I already had them so I didn't get any but a great opportunity for those who don't.

By the way, they were from target as they had target clearance stickers on them.

No...TARGET donated them for tax write offs. They do it all the time with toys after they don't sell at the 50%-70% off mark.. People on the forums were asking if they had hit discount stores (Goodwill) yet. So I just wanted to report they had.

Dude is 1000% correct. Target is more aggressive about clearing out old clearance stock and I think even have some kind of contract to ease the process of moving clearance stock to Goodwill and similar stores. It was particularly notorious a few years back when Target cleared out their exclusive Transformers ROTF Bruticus and Superion combiners.

Not me. Although I sure wish I had. There were scads of them on clearance at Target awhile back, and then they all disappeared overnight. TRU however still has some of the old series for full price.

I saw 1 of the Christmas packs at Goodwill. It had the Target clearance stickers on it. If they had a bunch of 3 packs and 12 packs, I probably would've bought them up, but I just left the 1 pack there.

Never seen it in the wild over here (around Montreal, Canada) - but those I bought online had those Target clearance stickers on them.
