    This is what I found when I when shopping today.

    Optimash Prime sitting on the shelf near the Mr. Potato heads at Toysrus.

    The only problem that I had buying the Fast action battlers was that the computer said Before Sale Date, But the thing that was odd was I never even said anything. She just told me that she would be right back. I figured that she would come back and tell me that I could not buy them.

    About a minute later she came back and told me she was sorry for the delay. I asked her what the problem was and she told me that these should not be out for sale yet, but since they are out on the shelf, she has to sell them to me no matter what.

    They said they could not find anything in the toy department with the same price, so they grabbed something that was $9.99 instead (Sky Dancers?) and that is how she rung them up.

    I think these have been popping up at Kmarts for a few weeks.

    Still, it's cool that she found a way to sell them to you... working the system FTW!

    Now THAT is how these stores should work if something like this happens. They take responsibility for their employees, and not frustrating the customer in the process.

    So, now if they end up being defective, how are you going to return any if the receipt is for something else?

    Since this is a circumstantial sighting, the thread will be moved to TFGD.

    On second thought, this thread will be locked and posters are advised to post circumstantial sightings in the Sightings Forum under the state of the sightings.
