    I am on unbelievable fire. I found the whole first wave of Reveal the Shield at Kmart just now. I decided to get Jazz and Tracks. They were not coming up when I scanned them at the price check. I took them up to the register, and the cashier said they were coming up "NOF", and had to call her manager. Well this hag came over and told me that they were recalled and they were not allowed to sell them. I argued with her that they are brand new and she didn't care. I also asked why the hell they were on the shelf if they were not on sale, but she said they should have been pulled off this morning. UnF'inbelievable. Has anyone else had this problem???

    I've had that happen to me at Target, but they would just ask me if I remembered what the price sticker said, I would lie and give them a lower price, and they would sell it to me for that.

    I am gonna say this...Kmart has been nothing but a thorn in the side of our TF community. Especially online. So, I say fuck em! Essencially they lied to you about being recalled. They probably had a different street date, and that is why it comes up as NOF.

    Same thing happened to me at walmart when ROTF toys were due out in a couple weeks. Someone put them out early, and I tried to buy them, they told me the same garbage about being recalled. Knowing that they were breaking street date, I didn't argue and let them take em back.

    However, with them showing up all over at retail, and Hasbros site selling them, I wonder why they have a later street date.

    HTS says they will be avaliable to ship in 3 to 5 business days which would be next week....maybe they should not have been stocked until then?

    They were NOF when I tried to buy them at my K-Mart on Sunday. They guy punched in the barcode to another deluxe and got me through. Took quite a while for them to figure it out though.

    When I bought mine on black friday, they also came up NOF. So the cashier called the guy in toys. They talked. I showed her that they were deluxe class figures and that they had tags up in the toy aisle stating that the deluxe class were 7.99. She verified with the toy guy and rang them up.

    I got mine from K-Mart on Black Friday. That particular K-Mart store still use those pricing stickers to ring up those items. The problem I had was... I had to pay $11.99 for each figure, even though all of their deluxe figures were on sale for $7.99. I didn't catch that until another board member in the Wisconsin thread mentioned the price for each of those figures.

    I'll try to find time to feel guilty about cheating a major retail chain out of a few bucks.

    I told them that they were 7.99 online, but the cashier ignored me. She was probably new and didn't know how to handle it. I am calling in the morning, or I may just go back and try again with a new cashier and manager. Still pissed...

    Not quite as bad but at Target I had the price on the two figures scanned at the register come up at $2 more than the sticker price. Someone clearly missed a price increase with the stickers. They were all wrong on the shelf. The old hag at the register was just tore the stickers off and said she would sell them at the higher price even after I told her they were all marked like that. We actually have a scanner law here about about that but I didn't have the time to fight it out with them. So I just left my $85 worth of stuff .
