    yeah saw him at walmart today. there was about 8 or 9 of them sitting in the clearance isle. If i had an extra $100 to spend i woulda got him ages ago. I couldnt pass up 64 bucks though. like $70 after sales tax.

    My local WM had him at $60 a few months back, but $20-$25 is my magic number for Devs.

    If I see one under $40, I'll get him. Any more than that and I'm just blowing too much money on something a bit lackluster.

    I think the last time I checked Walmart, he was $49. It's almost at the sweet spot where I'd really consider him. But that only solves one problem - I have a lack of space for him.

    $64 is too much for me, and actually more expensive than he's been around here since December ($59).

    Still overpriced. I'll pick one up if it gets to £20, £30 at the outside if I haven't found anything I want for a few weeks.

    To me he's worth $49.99 at the most. I really can't see myself spending more than that on him.

    They're going for $60 at my Walmart. Honestly I would only pick one up for $20 to just tinker with. Without robot modes for the bots and relative inaccuracy, he just isn't worth it. I would pay for that that guy's more movie accurate WIP down in the Radicons though.

    $49 is what I paid for mine as it was the last one in the shop and I wasn't willing to risk having to drive an hour to find one

    That's the price my WM has him at. I think it's a near perfect price.

    i guess i wasnt the only one to start seeing him discounted. $50 woulda been great. 2 days ago i checked at a different walmart only to see him for $100 still. i went to this one today and he was 64 so i grabbed him. for accuracy hes not great but for a toy on its own i think its worth it.

    Keep an eye on how many they have vs. the price. If they aren't selling, you know the price will drop...If they get down to 5 pcs left, I'd get one if I really wanted it. Or if they drop to a certain price I'd like. If I got one, it'd go to my son and I think I'd pay 30-40 for it.

    Take MP Skywarp...I saw the same 15 or so figures sit at my local WM since Novemeber I think it was. They never sold. The store keeps shuffling them around to one aisle or another. I finally decided I was tired of watching one when they hit $30 so I got one. Two weeks later, I check them today and they have been moved again. Still have 14 at $30. I know they will drop again!

    I don't know....this one just has no appeal to me. If it drops down to $20, I'll still have to consider the space that it'll take up.
