    So i was at walmart yesterday and saw Ultimate Prime there for $65 like he was on the site. Just FYI for those that want him and think his normal price is to high.

    $65 is a fair price for this piece. Thinking about picking one up today.

    Cool, thanks for the heads up. I think I will take a drive and see if my local has any. Amazon also has them for 64.96 if anyone can't find them this cheap in store.

    Just went to Walmart and picked one up, not sure I really need another Optimus Prime, but it is a good looking figure.

    It's been $65 at Wally World since the release. Initially, it was only on the Walmart website, but you can do a site-to-store. Looks like they just recently got their stock at the store level.

    Yeah, it was OK, $65 is still a lot but the only reason I bought it is because it is "THE BIGGEST" Optimus prime figure. Stupid marketing.

    Walmart is definitely wise to keep the instore price at $65. They know the economy is tough and they don't want a repeat of the Ultimate BB or Supreme Devastator.

    BTW there have also been reports that BJ wholesale warehouse is selling Ult Prime for $60.
