Found two AWE Strikers for $6.98 each in Illinois NW suburbs at the Super Target on Barrington Road (near intersection of Golf Road) in addition to a case fresh Wave 8 assortment.
***Please Note*** I had an employee check the Delta-Papa-Charlie-India (DPCI; not DCPI) for additional clearance vehicles and both his scanner gun and the wall mounted price checker verified that there were no more items on the shelves or in the stock room (despite the fact that I had two in my cart). This may mean that the clearance pricing of these vehicles moves them out of active inventory tracking (but I'm not sure how I could verify that theory). The bottom line is to KEEP CHECKING! They might still be out there at your Targets!
Good luck to all those still searching for these very cool Target exclusives! :-)

I just stopped by my local Target at 1pm on Saturday and found 1 Hiss and 3 Night Specters. They were 6.98. I grabbed the Hiss and one Night Specter to build my army. I checked the DPCI and no more in the stock room either.
And, not all Targets will mark things down equally. It can depend on stock. Targets always (and this is proven fact) clearance items at 30%, then 50% then 75% and finally 90%. In collectible toys, it rarely goes that far though. Thus 4.98 so perhaps they didn't move for a week at 6.98 and they went to the next discount.
Not too mention the pics prove it.

Nice $4.98. My local Target still had them for $6.98. No complaints still worth the $7 I paid for.

I've still never seen a striker at retail.

My local Super Target had 2 Hiss Tanks (got both), 2 AWE Strikers, and 6 Night Specters at $6.98 each. They were on an endcap at the end of the toy department on the back side where the toy aisle meets the summer/seasonal toys.
$4.98 or $6.98 is a heck of a deal. If any of you cats still need a AWE Striker or Night Specter, I might be able to help. Need a HISS, your S.O.L., sorry.

sorry everyone, i called every target in my region and none has any in qnty that made teh gas for the trip worthwhile. whats even more frustrating is that a couple stores that told me had qnty in stock, were not able to actually find them to verify they existed. in what will go down as the best target experience i've ever had, the store manager and a couple employee's walked every aisle in the store looking for what the computer toold them they had in stock. yes, they checked the back. they apologized profusely and even called other stores to ask them to physically verify there stock level which is when we discoved this particular store was not the only one with this problem.
i'll not even venture a guess as to what happened to them but the manager i deal with was just as frustrated as i was having driven a good deal to get there and not find what they should have had. it's nice to know there are some people out there that actually take thier job seriously and are dedicated.
so, just to warn others, what they tell you on the phone may not represent what is actually there.
sufice to say, i think these are now dead and gone. you either got lucky and got some or not.
i have no doubt however ebay will be flooded with them and at the normal ebay pricing simply beacuse they can now make a much larger profit margin on them having bought them for $3-5 less each. i'm sure the same will happen here with them as well. it's just a repeat of the bbi clearance vehicles
