    *shudders*
    I still have nightmares about Vangelus's review of Dead End attempting to get back into Soundwave's chest (at least I think it was for that figure). :tongue: 

    Awesome find though!

    Dude read the post, Wallys is a nickname for walmart.

    Do we really need to post every time somebody yanks something off a pallet at walmart. We know what there getting and when it's available for sale. I hope this doesn't keep happening for three more weeks it's getting old

    They're not really 'recalled'.
    They're date-coded in wal-mart's register system.
    Saying that they are recalled is a quick way to prevent the sale.
    It's annoying that the wally clerks can't read the date
    codes on the boxes and put the figs out anyway.
    Wally will take the date code off on may 30.

    Yes. Some genius fans have considered taking up a couple of Rotf toys and an animated or universe one. The plan is you have you scan the animated one multiple times while putting the rotf stuff in the bag. I don't think anybody is stupid enough to try it. yet.

    Someone in the sightings thread for my state claims to have done this. I suppose it's not "technically" wrong if you're paying the correct amount, but I'd have to think that this will cause havoc down the line when your store is trying to do inventory, figure out what to reorder, etc...:confused:

    I've just gotta toss out the argument that it is indeed technically wrong. Walking out the door with an item you didn't buy is wrong. They are buying 2 animated figures if they scan one twice. They should be walking out with 2 of those.

    Still, it's pretty stupid for Waltard to have them on shelves if they aren't going to sell them.

    This. Although, not just tempted, I'm totally getting one and keeping it in the office.
