    Sorry if this is old news. I know the 3 Universe Ultra Class that used to be WM exclusives were found past month at TJMaxx and Marshalls, but I havent seen anyone saying about MP Skywarp, wich was a WM exclusive as well. Here pics w/ proof.

    PS: I found it at Union, NJ.

    Wow. How did Walmart fail to sell all of these at regular retail?

    They have been on clearance at Walmart for a long long time. Lowest price i bought them at was $19.

    But the distribution was awful. Out here in Oregon, everyone in the sightings thread struggled to find one, let alone buy them at clearance. Same exact story with the Universe Ultras. Awful, awful job on Walmart's part.

    Oh man, I saw it at Wal-Mart and got an Iron Man helmet instead! I even put it in the cart! It's too bad I have no excuse to go to TJMaxx.

    I think Target has the same problem at times. I never saw the Bruticus set here. We are pretty hit and miss with the Walmart exclusives.

    Some guy on HISS Tank found them for 7 bucks at WM, but still there's probably people who missed out.

    I've only seen a Masterpiece Skywarp in a far away city, and even then there were only two. Also, I'm in Canada so no TJMaxx stores. :(

    I found one Skywarp today. Hopefully they'll get more so I can get another to have one sealed and one on display. Of course now I need to get ahold of Starscream.:redface2:

    So does Walmart send their TF exclusives to TJMaxx just to get rid of them?

    tjmaxx and marshalls very openly advertise that they buy overstock from larger retailers that can't sell the products in their stores. big stores like walmart make a % of their $$ back (probably still take a loss but a loss is better then nothing at all) and tjmaxx/marshalls get to carry the product at a discounted rate from regular retail.

    really makes me smile when they land stuff like this though. I was able to find a couple hardheads this week too due to marshalls. already got skywarp but this is really awesome news for people that may have missed out.

    Just picked up MP Skywarp at a local TJ Maxx (upstate NY) - for those that are looking, the one I found was on a random table just sitting there waiting for me, so make sure you look around...

    I never saw one MP Skywarp at the walmarts in VA. Funny it's at TJMAXX now. Of course, my TJMAXX doesn't have any either.
