The staff have affectionately labeled this our GTFO sale. Among the items listed (now sold out, natch) were a few Hot Toys Dark Knight Two-Face (formerly $174.99, sale priced at $39.99), so you can get a sense of how phenomenal the discounts are. There’s still some terrific stuff left, and items are still being added. Keep checking back or subscribe to the sale’s RSS Feed.
Remember, these prices are valid online AND in-store through Saturday the 1st, while we still have stock.
