    Skywarp is 50% off at the walmart in Swansea. I don't know if this is a nationwide trend or what, but needless to say we now have a new masterpiece addict on the boards.

    Yeah, I know. I was just there at my local Wal Mart here in Carson City, Nevada. It was $30 and my wife got it for me for my birthday. Skywarp is going right next to Masterpiece Starscream on my Transformers display.

    I'd assume around Boise.

    Look, top office gives word down that they need to lose a certain amount of stock and they have $X to mark everything down by. Other than that, it's totally up to each store's discretion.

    Unless top office gives word for a nationwide price cut (like TFs in late '08 and Batman:B&tB afterwards), not every store is going to have the same things on clearance or for even the same amount.

    Some local Wally's have had MP Skywarps at half off through all of December, and some are only putting them on clearance this week.

    One thing at one store doesn't necessarily mean the same thing at another.

    I bought two @ $30.00 a pop last night. The thread we should resurrect is the one where we were warned to pick him up @ $60.00 because we'd be crying about not getting him later. If I missed out on him @ $60.00 it would have been no big deal to me, but I would be sore @ $30.00.

    $7 is an amazing steal. I was lucky to find one for $30. Good thing I waited on buying it (I wasn't going to originally purchase it).

    Now to patiently await for Thundercracker.

    Yep, it was in Boise, ID. I think they were just desperate to get them off shelves.

    I should have included it in my initial post, but if anyone wants to see the proof I got it for $7, there's pics of the clearence tag and my receipt I posted in the Idaho Sightings thread.

    I can attest to the stores just now marking them down. I just bought mine today for $30, I have been stalking him at $60, then $48 and finally today I happen to catch the WM employee doing markdowns and MP Skywarp was one of them. I can't imagine any store having any left for $7...that's incredible.

    Is anybody else worried that WM might stop doing exclusives only to sell them at 50% and sometimes 75% off.

    The store I bought my MO Skywarp from still has ROTF Ramjet and Skywarp as well as Fearswoop pack and Tailpipe/Sideways pack.

    Are they making any money having these? Especiall since the majority of us are not picking these up until they are at least 50% off?

    Here's hoping we see MP Grimlock soon, although I would prob pay full price for him.

    $7? I could have a whole army of Skywarps, waiting to be customized into the other Seekers. Someone would have to paint for me, but still...
