    I apologize if this has been reported already but..

    Most of the action figure isle at my local Walmart is demolished from Christmas shoppers but whatever is left has been marked down. They had several tftm rescue ratchets and they marked them down to $11. All universe voyagers are $15. All leader figures are $30. Ironman action figures and Batman figures are marked to $7 as well. I dont know if this is a local thing or nationwide, but if its nationwide, its worth taking a look at whats marked down..

    I'd noticed three each of TFTM Rescue Ratchet and Thundercracker marked for clearance, and several lines like Indiana Jones and TMNT marked with the red discontinued price tags, but not so much discounts. Hulk toys were on sale for $8, but not Iron Man (still no Concept Series!). And my store never had that $28 Animated Leader sale, and still had nothing significant now. Just $34 instead of $39.

    I didnt catch the hulk figures, but pretty much everything on the isle that was left was marked down.

    I saw no markdowns at Walmart, but I did see the Target ML wave marked down to $6.98, and the FFF Wave (what was left) marked down to about $10. I may pick up one of the Black Costume Spider-Man figures now, considering they have about 3 pegs worth.

    Or I may wait and see if he's reduced any further.

    Almost every wal-mart has a different philosophy concerning price cuts.
    I have one wal-mart where animated voyagers have been $17 since the beginning of oct.
    Wal-mart is the only chain i know of that actually competes with itself.

    The stores do not set their price cuts. Those come from Bentonville.

    Actually if a store has A LOT of overstock on an item then can do an "instore special" and discount that item... or if then get an item in that doesn't sell that well they will do it too

    Snagged a $25 Premium Leader Prime!

    Wal-Mart also had the remnants of Movie Voyagers marked down to $11- so I may go back out there for a Blackout or Ironhide. We'll see...

    The animated battle in space and revenge of blackarchnia two packs are going for only $9.00 a set now.

    I picked them up,
    That's a $4.50 extra prowl for me to use as his hologram!

    Some good insight from this thread thank you, I'll check on those premium leaders next time I'm there.

    Edit: Nabbed thundercracker and premium prime at the sale price.

    I'll check on anniversary prime grimlocka. That's a steal.

    Thats true, but typically most price changes come from Bentonville. The last couple of years I worked at Walmart, they were tight with in store markdowns.

    A sale at Wal-Mart here would be nice IF THERE WERE ANY TOYS LEFT. The one store that did have a ton of TFs only had tons of Animated. A line I don't buy.

    I saw the movie leaders price cut here in PA as well.
    Took way too long to get movie toys to clearance.
    I was figuring them to still be on shelf when movie2 figs come out.
