    It seems to be regional and character specific in cases. When I've checked not all came up at this low price. Maybe it's just early and this will turn into a full "rollback" soon. (hopefully...)

    Got a TRU book in the mail today with a 20% off coupon on the front of it. Good from 5/21 - 5/29.

    Sadly I had the opposite surprise the other day, but didn't notice till I got home. Deluxes rang up as $16.99 instead of the $14.92 pricetag. Glad I only found one.

    In the link above the toy's "sku" input box you can search for all the other TF's in their system.

    everything in generations except titan masters
    Legends SKU: 49802156 UPC:630509431458
    Deluxes SKU: 49802128 UPC:630509431359
    Voyager SKU: 49802139 UPC: 630509431427
    Leader SKU: 49802152 UPC:630509438815

    If you see that your walmart store has stock, but there is nothing on the shelves and if the amount "in stock" reflects how much would be in a new case (i.e a case of deluxe has 8) then they may have an unopened case that hasn't been put out yet. If its a weird number, say like my local walmart had 6 legends but nothing on the pegs, then that usually mean there is an inventory miscount.
    Either way attempt to give the UPC to a "competent" walmart associate that has a tellzon/hand scanner and they should be able to locate the product, or identify that there is an inventory mistake. When there is an inventory mistake, but the shelves are empty it usually impedes new product being ordered.
    For best results on fixing the inventory mistake, try to track down the dept. manager for toys, and ask them to check to see if that product is in stock, because it says so "on the walmart app".
    If you bring up brickseek you may get treated like a crazy person.

    Went back to that Walmart tonight, found a new case. Didn't scan Topspin since that is the one that I got the other day, which is still strange at $16.99. Took a screen shot of the tag at $14.92 just in case they were all ringing up at the higher price. Got to the register:
    Perceptor- $14.92
    Kup- $14.92
    Quake- $9.88
    Krok- $9.88

    Don't know if they just haven't updated them all in the computer, and the cashier looked less interested to be there than I was, so I just called it a wash.

    She was pretty snarky when I asked why the same line was different prices. Swore off this Walmart for over a year, but sadly the other Walmart in town doesn't get nearly the stock, and has had a sharp increase in shady characters in the parking lot over the past year (not to mention that last week lightning hit one of the parking lot lights, and they have almost all been out, and I go after I hit the gym at 11pm). The front end management at the one I found them at treated me like a crook when I tried to use a coupons.com coupon, and had the wrong price on an end cap of voyagers a few years back, so I walked out and emailed them about how bad their front end management is (which was confirmed by employees later on Facebook), so long story short, it was a price I was willing to pay today.

    Are you sure? I don't think GCs boost your eBay bucks at all, es evident from buying gaming GCs. I think they treat it as buying credit, not actual product, so different rules apply.

    That's.... a whole lot of effort. :lol  Wouldn't it be easier to apply for a job, sabotage the current manager's career, and then conveniently swoop in to take over the store as new manager? You know, in order to get a fresh case of TFs? :D 

    THIS is exactly why I dread the Walmart experience. You don't live in a big city, do you? You mention TWO Walmarts, which leads me to believe you do.

    You'll want a country-side Walmart. They're like an entirely different chain. Clean, friendly, plus normal customers.

    You're right, they must have changed the rules on that, because I remember they used too...

    Cool Target.com trick:

    1) Add stuff to your cart.
    2) Leave it there (exit site).
    3) Wait a few days.
    4) Check email - Target will let you know you have stuff to buy, and offer you a unique code for $5 off of $50 (works with TF toys).

    I actually just got a 2nd email! :lol  The first one expired a few days after I set up my cart, and this one expires 2 days after the first (both coupon codes are unique). Useful for purchasing TF box sets or any other (non-grocery) goods. Expiration seems to be about a week from leaving stuff in your cart, but they may send you a new code (as happened to me). You can also empty your cart and put stuff in again to get another coupon.

    Fine print:
    Offer available online only. Save $5 on a qualifying merchandise subtotal of $50 or more. Non subscription orders only. Offer available online only. May not be combined with other promotional codes or applied to previous orders. Offer excludes: Grocery, Target GiftCards and Specialty GiftCards.

    I just found the hotrod wave in the walmart clearance section. they were only a penny off. $14.94 or .96 or something. mabye thats got something to do with the weird pricing.

    Mabye someone thought with "new" movie toys coming they should clear out "old" stuff? Kinda made me wonder if thats why I havent seen any new stuff at the walmarts by me in forever.
