    They never were at my Wal*Mart. The Manager made some lame excuse as to why they weren't.

    Yep. The signs at my local Walmart said they'd be on sale until November 28th. It sucks that I missed out and chances are they won't be that price again anytime soon, but I had to prioritize and couldn't spend even the $28 on Megatron when I saw him. I also have a $10 off Target coupon that I'm pretty sure expired this past week. I hate passing on deals, but with a baby coming next summer and the holidays this month, as well as my other financial commitments, I know I made the right choice. Oddly enough Megatron and Bulkhead are seriously shelfwarming in my area even with the lower price.

    $40 is what they are on sale for in Canada. $59.99 is the regular price.

    I figured it would end before the Walmarts got Magnus. Luckily, I found him at Target & had the $10 coupon. Also combined it with the McDonalds coupon so Magus cust just $25 for me.

    Went to Wal-mart on Black friday, and Bought myself Magnus. Similar problem, her rang up for $40+, did I pay this.. NO! They still had a sign saying "Animated leader $28.98" So I had the cashier call the toy section and check the sign, simply I paid $28.98 regardless of him being new.

    I got so tired of looking around the area, I ordered him from online with that $10 off coupon that was good through last Friday from Target.com. Initially they said I wouldn't get him until after Christmas, but I got an email a day later stating he already had shipped. Even with the tax and shipping, he still turned out at $35.

    I am glad you got one though MP, even if you got Wal-Ed.

    If it was at a Target, I could have said Targeted. Sorry these are the jokes.
