    I had gone into one of my local Wal Marts to get some bags and maybe Blackout (I think I missed out on him) when I stumbled upon this guy sitting all forlorn by him self on the shelf, it was almost like he could not deal with this or something...

    Any way I take him over to a scaner and he don't pull up a price, I deside to see if a check out person could ring it up....

    After about 5 mins the manger comes back and I am able to purchase it. The people behind me were good natured about it, how ever this one lady behind them, she was the spitting image of trailer trash, from her smokeing devistated voice, to yelling at her child, to eating the fried chicken she was going to buy while in the line.

    Now she did not say anything to me, but she was a bit tough on the gal that was manning the register.

    Anyways, just thought I'd share my scoop. Heh, of all things to find at a Wal Mart eh?

    Will reissues go up in value in the future? I'm thinking of buying 2 for investments

    Someone returned one of these they got from walmart.com and then re-bought it for the same 19.9x price right after (he made a thread about it a few pages back). It seems they must be accepting returns from the online orders and then just putting them on the shelf. That would explain the price and there only being one in your case.

    There was only one at the store I went to too. Of course for me, it was priced at 89.76 and the box was trashed.

    I just asked. You find some weird shit at Wal-Mart's sometimes.


    I guess the faded picture threw me off. Made the box look old.

    LMAO... don't bust on Members Only, Bumble. I was shoppin' for Transformers wearing one... and my Adidas with no laces. :) 

    EvaUnit13, to answer your question - just about everything does, including reissues (at one point or another), but as far as an "investment"? I'd save your time and get some stocks instead.

    Good catch indeed but if it was a "screw-up" on the part of the store, the poor personnel in my country would be fired or have his/her pay deducted...is this the same in the US?

    They can be disciplined or fired, but it would be far more difficult to reduce their wages for it in America.
