    Check out Walmart.com's TF sections. Select ROTF deluxes $7.88 and Voyagers 17.88. Animated Clearances as well. Seems like Wal-Mart didn't like losing to TRU, of all stores.

    Only Deluxes I saw after a quick look was the Preview Wave, and Soundwave is unavailable.

    The prices of ROTF Scout figures are 44 cents cheaper at TRU and Target than Walmart.

    Does it seem obvious to anyone that soundwave mayy have been shortpacked in the assortments cause I'm having a really hard time finding him.

    I don't usually shop at Toys R Us often because its Five miles away.
    But its certainly a more comfortable environment for toy shopping.

    I'll see if I can drop by this weekend.
    I'm going for extra dirt boss. But may grab other things just because the price swap was there.
