    I hear a lot of people saying that they are going to wait until he goes on clearance to buy him, How long does it normally take for Target to put something like that on Clearance?

    Usually about 1.5 - 2 months in my area and things start to go on clearance. It usually takes another couple of weeks before the clearance prices drop enough that the items begin to really move off the shelves.

    I don't know if they will. They are slowly disappearing around here.

    There are no more at my local Target and the surrounding locations are slowly disappearing. I got mine when it was on sale for $27.99 and with the power coupon for 20% off it made it $22.39. I would guess they will discount it in a month to make way for Bruticus.

    I did the same thing. You can't do much better than $23 for Superion. You snooze you might lose. There was only one Superion left at my local Targets in SoCal.

    you shouldnt risk it if you want it. because I promise you, you are not the only person in your area watching it to go on clearance.

    Note that Bruticus might share the same DCPI # so they will not clearence it out until Bruticus has had a decent run on the shelves. By that time, all the Superions might be gone. Get them while you can.

    There is precident for this. For GIJoe, the Rattler & Conquest came out and then months later, the two repaint jets came out using the same DCPI. They only recently clearenced out the DCPI. While some stores might have still had the 1st set of planes, many just had the 2nd set.

    well like everyone said, maybe you should go for it now. as we all know target, instead of lowering, increased prices. deluxes went from reg price 11.99 to 13.09. before there was a sale where it was 8.99. it'd be nice if you could use the coupons but they expired on the 11th. so it's hard to tell when a sale might arise. i think the only sale we might see is if walmart or tru do another sale which might make target do the same.

    This. And add to that the FP limb add-on being released, I'd say get it while you can.

    People are waiting for clearence on this? That's pretty damn penny-pinching, when you consider it's already below the price you'd pay for 4 Scouts, let alone 4 Scouts and a Deluxe.

    If you guys wait for Superion to go on clearance, you'll be sorry. Bruticus will share the same DPCI as Superion, so if Superion goes clearance, then your store may never receive Bruticus.

    Interesting. Does everyone think that they will clearance an exclusive to make way for another exclusive that's the same size and price?

    Somehow, I doubt it.

    With the upgrade kit coming out, just buy Superion and do it now.
