Thanks DD, but I think maybe I'll just give him my Bespin Han. If Hasbro comes out with the vintage carded 6" Bespin Han, then I'll snag that one and shuffle off the BS version to my bro.

Off-topic side note: last year I offered him my extra 6" TFA old Han as a birthday gift. He's always been a huge Han Solo fan. He refused it -- he hates TFA for its lousy treatment/murder of Han, and didn't want any reminders of that awful movie.  Damn, there are times when I'm glad to know good taste runs in our family...

 i noticed that too! ;) i slept in and didnt make it yet but im getting off here and going to see what i can find.

 great reports! too bad some managers wont allow certain figures. that isnt a surprise. if its online though (which it is) you could argue with the guy and make him do it but i dont know if i'd have enough in me to do that/make a scene..that guys a knob though and shouldnt be doing that.

 times ticking. prob missing out as we speak. ah well. lol

It should be automatic.  It's in the system.  Even if the price tag is still regular price, it should scan the sale price.

I got the Chewie for $5.  It's all about the sticker folks. 

If they print up the $5 sticker and slap it on the exclusive, and *scan that sticker*, it's gonna be $5.
If they don't put that sticker on, and scan the regular code bar, it's gonna be $5 if it was supposed to be $5 and regular price if is was supposed to be regular price.

 add me to the ''got screwed list!'' i had island journey Rey and Leia Escape but the girl goes ''this one is 5 but leia isnt'' i just nicely said ''it says online all 6'' black series are 5, but no dice. so they are pulling this stuff at diff stores for sure :/ i ended up getting Island Rey anyway. its a nice figure. the hood is huge but thats not a deal breaker.

 nice to see most get them all. i saw Moloch though but i dont care for it or wanted it anyway.

 great tips though on this! maybe next time i'll get a bit luckier! thanks again to darthderek for mentioning it!

Hey Bob,
Yes the bespin escape Leia, solo movie chewie, and moloch figures are all exclusives to EBgames. Therefore they have their own individual scu/barcodes numbers in Eb's system. Where all other regular wave figures share the same Scu/barcode in Eb's system.  And it was this "Regular scu/Barcode" that was on sale for $5.
  And like Dangerlinto mentioned , if your eb store employee accidently placed a red $5 price tag on a exclusive figure, and you bring it to the cash, and they scan that $5 price tag and don't Recognize the mistake they made, could you get away with it.😀  However all the stores I went too didn't put new red $5 price tags on the figures, they just grouped them along with other $5 sale items all in a same localized area with a $5 deal Friday  sign above.
It was definitely hit and miss at the stores I went to.
We will have to remember this for next year, for both 6" and TVC.  :u:

Just a note...there are $5 Fridayís every week, just not always for Star Wars stuff.  You just have to keep checking.  Itís their way to keep you coming to their stores.
