    Hey guys, I just got back from my local Wal-mart here in Dallas and I stumbled upon an awesome deal. I picked up Animated Bumblebee, Shockwave and Skywarp all for just $21. That's right each one was just $7 each at Wal-mart on clearance. I plan on visiting another Wal-mart tomorrow because I'm trying to find Blitzwing for that price. So good hunting because at that price I doubt they will be in stock too much longer. Oh yeah they also had Masterpiece Skywarp for $15 also.

    You can also find out if this is happening in your state's sightings threads. Dude's on my states sightings thread are pretty good at reporting any price fluxuations there.

    It varies. Most of the Walmarts that have the deluxes at $7 have the voyagers at $13. If the deluxes are $5 then the voyagers $10. My walmarts have bumped the Fearswoop set prices back down to $9 (originally $24, then $12, then $13, now $9). Unfortunately, the Universe Ultras are still at $25 ($30 -> $15 -> $30 -> $25).

    My Haul the past two weeks:
    $10 Voyager - Shockwave
    $7 Deluxe - Sentinel Prime x 2, Waspinator, Soundwave, Electrostatic Soundwave, Freeway Jazz
    $9 Fearswoop

    I'm going back for Slag today for customs, maybe a second Wasp.

    If you still have the receipt you can buy at the sale price and return the unopened toy using the old receipt.

    From what I've seen in my area; $13 for ani Voyagers and $7 for ani Deluxes is pretty consistent at Walmart. Unfortunately for me I keep running into Shockwave, Lugnut, and Skywarp.

    Yeah, last night I bought Lugnut for $5 at the Burlington Wal*mart. He's soooo simple. Glad i didn't pay Retail for him.

    I have seen deluxes for $7 and at one $3.50. Voyagers from $5 to $6.50 to $13.

    Where did you see the $13 Skywarp?

    What's funny is that they had a couple of more Voyagers for $13 and some of the same ones were $7. So I just picked up the $7 ones and left the $13 for somebody else but they had plenty of Masterpiece Skywarp for $15 which surprised me because I thought if it was $15 there should be none left. I actually thought I was getting a good deal when I picked mine up for $30 last month.

    Yep. I bought Voyager Bulkhead a couple of days ago at the $13 price. Pretty excited about it since I've regretted selling my original last year! I don't think I'll be picking up any extra figures, but these are great deals IMO.

    That's a good idea. Unfortunately I don't think I still have the receipt. Also the one I picked up was the only one left (which is why I grabbed him :D ).

    I think the only ones I haven't seen on clearance were the Leader Class.
