    Unusual tag on Shelf at walmart.

    I Went to My local Walmart today after i got my Few figures i needed i saw a werid tag on the shelf. The MP Skywarp tag, This walmart had sold out of them a while ago, So the tag was new. It said $30.00 (the main seen clearence price) and Next to it was a different tag. It said Temporarily Out Of Stock. Ordered 3-16 When Ordered 2-23 and Estimated Arrival, March (i'll try to get a tag pic tomorrow). I have never seen these tags before on a shelf. So the point of this thread is, HAs anyone else seen these before?

    No, thats kinda odd. Maybe its a "for stockers only" kind of tag that should've been removed after someones shift. Ive seen the shelf layout forms left hanging around, but nothing like youre describing.

    Glad I got mine at $30 instead of fleabay prices. I noticed one of our local Walmarts has at least 4 of them in stock. Was hoping to find one of the other two seekers tucked away back there, but didn't. :(

    It is just a tag showing that the dept manager has gone through and scanned their out of stocks. Skywarp shows as being nonreplenishable, so the label should have been pulled as there are no plans for Walmart to carry on over that item. It's not on the new layout, so probably just the dept mgr trying to cover their ass and saying that they have scanned outs. In another week or so they might change it to deleted status.

    These tags are all over my local Walmart, they're nothing special. It just helps them keep track of stock balance, and lets them know whether they need to hunt for product in the back or not.

    I'm curious what do they do for someone that buys the protection plan and brings the thing back 6 months from now with an issue...

    Go to eBay. They are very cheap, and plentiful. I'm one of the people that bought him right when he was released. Having been burned before with the "I'll wait until the price drops" gimmick. An awesome figure and definitely worth the full price of admission that I paid.

    I actually came across one at a specialty toy store, today but the price tag was 89.99 canadian and there's no way I'm spending that, considering how cheap it is out there. I may have to hit ebay, but shipping prices are always so ridiculous unless....

    Any good samaritan's with paypal accounts out there willing to ship to B.C., Canada? ;)
