Hi gang. I didn't see this posted so do close this thread if it's duplicated. At one of my local Wal-Marts, I noticed a bunch of new Generations and gold box Transformers deluxes in the clearance aisle for only $7 each. What's weird is that the same ones are also on the regular toy aisle pegs with price tags of $11.88. Only the ones in the clearance aisle had the additional red/wite $7 price sticker on them. The price scanner rang up as $7 and the cashier confirmed. Unfortunately I already had the others so I used this opportunity to pick up deluxe Ironhide.

I haven't seen this yet at other Wal-Marts, but it's certainly worth a look.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Smells like "mistake" to me.

Cool for you though! icon-ironhide.gif

Walmart clearances really vary a lot by store. One would probably be lucky to find this elsewhere. Still, nice. If it was a "rollback" though it would probably be widespread.

Yeah one of my Wal-marts was famous for those kind of mistakes years ago.
