    I sure hope no one out there is actually buying the UM reissue for $90 bucks. We should boycott this reissue because WM is trying to rape us.

    What they're doing is scalping. They're taking backstock from another store and selling it at a premium. They're obviously doing this to cash in on the movie hype.

    Rollback MY ASS!! Always the lowest guaranteed? How can they take a $29.99 toy and sell it at secondary market prices? Hasbro should have something to say about this.

    There has to be laws against a retail store trying to sell something above and beyond MSRP @secondary market prices.

    PLEASE DO NOT buy this item from WM. Don't let them take advantage of TF fans.

    Does anyone know who we can contact about this? Hasbro maybe?

    Was it ever confirmed to be the reissue? I remember hearing rumors about it being a US release of MP02.

    lol. This is funny. In before lock.

    Thanks.....I'm thinking about avoiding Wal-Mart alltogether for this. It isn't right. They're trying to rape TF fans and cash in on the movie hype by trying to scalp a $29.99 toy for what it sells for on ebay. (probably higher than ebay)

    I apologize if I offended anyone for using that word. I just needed a phrase that sounded a little stronger than "taking advantage of"
