    [infomercial] That's right! You can have your very own Masterpiece Skywarp for less than a Scout class figure! But, hurry TODAY! Supplies are limited, and this timeless figure is guaranteed to NOT be around long at these smokin' prices. But WAIT! For a limited time you can have not one, but TWO MP Skywarps for LESS than the average Transformer deluxe. Why are you still reading this?! Go get one NOW![/infomercial]

    This one was found in Waco, TX

    I'm not as boggled by why they have him so low, as I am boggled more by the question of why you gave the cashier 11 instead of just 10. :lol

    Kinda like MP Prime when they had em, I remember getting a couple extra for trading fodder cuz they clearanced them down to about $10 each around here after xmas. Too bad clearance items are decided on a store by store basis, my local WM still has a ton of them on clearance for... $60? :inquisiti

    Naw, just screwing around. I figured that was why you did it. Just being an ass is all.

    I do that stuff all the time. Though sometimes I get the cashier who doesn't understand math very well and just says I gave them too much money. I do that more with change though, (usually trying to get rid of pennies) which really confuses some cashiers.

    I got 4 for $7 the other day at a Wal-Mart in Putnam, CT.

    They didn't have any in stock, but I took my receipt from when I first got them and received the difference.

    grats on the bargain, i paid £40 ($90,000,000,000 USD) for MP skywarp and don't regret it in the slightest so you got an awesome deal there :) 

    Every time i see a bargainlicious TF in the shops i inevitably think "Oh wow, i could totally sell that on ebay and make... onetwothreefourfivesixSEVEN! 7 WHOLE POUNDS!" followed rapidly by "oh, wait, i can't be bothered with the effort of taking photos, listing packing and posting it just for £7"

    So really those looking to get this price. Need to be scanning skywarps at the price checker as its a system clearance rather than what's written on the tag.

    In my case I see clearance tfs and think "Hey if I buy that it will make up for all the money I lost on that poor deal the other day. May make a nice misb sample."

    Also avoiding posting on ebay is fine. Driveing to get toys, Driveing to the post office. Stressing out over getting the orders filled. And just being labeled a scalper by the Transformers community for putting tons of clearance stuff up which are usually store exclusives. Slag That.
