    So ive been hanging out at 2 different Walmarts waiting for them to clearance off Surprme Devastator.

    One Walmart had two and then one day, at full price, they were gone, along with the price ticket for where they were.

    Another Walmart had 2 at $64 but they werent selling. This morning again, I check it out and they both are gone.

    Does anyone know if Walmart's are maybe just sending them back if they dont sell? I know Target has been discounting them down to even $30 to get rid of them, I just wonder if Walmart prefers to send them back then take that much of a cut?

    I think Walmarts are sending them to one store in an area, and just clearancing them out there. One Super Walmart in my area had like 15 of them a week ago, and they never had that many before.

    Retailers don't send anything back. What are distribution hubs going to do with toys out of a case?

    They probably sold off the stock to some place like Marshall's, TJMaxx, Ross, or BigLots.

    Still warming the shelf....

    The Wally World near me marked 8 of them down to $64.00 about 3 weeks ago and they are still sitting there collecting dust and having the batteries drained out.

    I only have seen a few around. It is quite strange that they are all dissapearing. I don't think they are giving them the old "drop the price to where we don't make money" yet.

    The Walmarts near me haven't had them to my knowledge. They were clearanced out at my local Target for $40, and that's the last I've seen them.

    Ebay:
    Being an Ex-walmart employee I can give another idea. Night shift is usually the first ones to find out about these clearances/sales. Some of these people are collectors or deal stealer's as well. So if they got clearanced again its possable they snatched them up before anyone even got the chance to see them. We use to do this all the time at the wal-mart I used to work at.

    I still see 1-4 in almost every local Target, TRU, KMart, and Walmart, by me.

    The cheapest I've seen them is $65, and that's at super-overpriced K-Mart of all places.

    I haven't seen any at my Walmart since Christmas. Not a single Human Alliance figure either.

    They probably get dumped at places like Ross or BigLots.
