    So I was at WalMart just browsing the TF section when I spotted the last of the movie figures, it was an Allspark Power Salvage and his robot mode looked pretty cool so I went to the price scanner. When it came up with the results I knew I had to buy this figure for he was only $3!!! Has anyone else had luck such as this, if so please reply.

    I got Premium Blackout and Rescue Ratchet on clearance for $7 a piece, but I didn't see any other movie 1 figs there.

    Congrats, guys, but I'm not sure clearances on 1-plus-year-old figures are news.

    The Walmart near me doesn't have anymore movie figures. The last time I seen one there was just before Christmas.

    My local Walmart doesn't have any movie figures left either. Haven't seen them in months.

    I've heard several accounts of this. I guess some WalMarts are clearing out old stock. I'll bite if I see anything at that price!

    Yeah, congrats on a nice cheap find. But I'll never understand why anyone thinks WMT clearance would be news.

    Markdowns at Wal-mart are generally at the discretion of individual stores. That's why right now you might find 25th Anniv Prime for $13 at one store, $25 at another, and $65 at another... and all at WMT stores within 20 miles of each other.

    One WMT I was at a few weeks ago was doing an in-store special only 50% off all clearance toys where I scored a couple of the TFA 2-pk deluxes for only $4. But then just 20 minutes from that same WMT, another WMT still had the same 2-pks at the original retail price.

    In short, Wal-Mart markdowns are regional. Just because someone finds something cheap in one store doesn't mean it will be the same price at another.

    My Wally-world is pretty much clear of ANY Transformers. All I saw the other day was a few Universe toys and some Safeguards packs. Lucky you could find some at yours! Great find!
