    My friend went to walmart today and texted me that they had all the generations on clearance for 7 bucks. He said they had tons of soundwaves, thunderwings, cluffjumpers and blurrs on clearance.

    I haven't seen them myself, but he's not one to lie about sales on transformers. If I can get there this week, I will take some pictures myself and post them.

    I'd like confirmation, personally, before I believe this.
    Mostly due to denial...

    I saw Blurr in my store's clearance aisle yesterday but I figured it was just some mom being cheap and throwing it out of her cart, making her kid get clearance crap instead.

    Cool. I was there just now and didn't even see any Generations on the the pegs. I'll have to check another WM.

    I got RTS Wreckgar recently from the collectors club site. It was a preorder, but I got him already. You had to buy bumblebee too, but I didn't have him yet either so for me it worked out. They do kill you on shipping though (over $10 was the cheapest route).

    I think your friend's mistaken...Generations is the only line that's not currently on clearance at Walmart.

    I was at a WM this afternoon and all the Generations figs were still full price, $11.88. Every other TF toy in the aisle was on clearance, though.

    Looks around... true. Whats the difference again? That split was stupid. Anyway, I think I'll get a BiS set for $13. Can't beat that.

    Must be an American thing because I was in Wal-Mart last week, and the only stuff they had on sale was a Masterpiece Skywarp marked down to 50 from 60, and a Voyager Starscream or something that was probably old stock.

    *BEGIN RANT
    Yeah, I mean i LOVE the figures, but Generations made sense to me. I mean, Classics implied G1 so thats what we got. Then they dug up the Universe name and made it Universe 2.0 and it had Prowl, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Dinobot, Cheetor... umm ok. So if thats the route they wanted to take, just call them Generations, and stick any homage or re-envisioning you want in THAT line. Why RtS? Where did that even come from?
    *RANT OVER

    Anyway, as I was saying, yeah I may pick up a BiS at that price, and if anyone sees RtS Wreckgars marked down, hook me up. LOL

    Generations was on sale at my Walmart for $7, although I only saw the pegs and I did not use the price checker. I got myself a HFtD Starscream for $30!

    Down here in Texas, it's the RTS line that is on clearance not Generations. I was able to get Jazz, Tracks and BB for $23 last Thursday...

    I believe this is just a case of mistaken identity. When my local Walmart put the RTS/HftD lines on clearance, the Generations figs simply 'floated' over to those pegs. So it gives the appearance of being on clearance when they still scan at regular price.
