    Didn't get any pictures due to a crappy camera phone (and I don't think they would have been wanting me to do that any way 8^) )...

    BUT... in an upcoming feature we're gonna see the return of the movie Voyager Starscream repaints. The shipping label read $22... so it sounds like the prices of Voyagers might be going back up.

    Saw these in a box on a pallette in the Lodi, CA. WM.

    The Walmart near me still has the Ramjet and Skywarp repaints in the clearance aisle for $20.

    Seriously?
    Even when all other Voyagers are $16? That's nuts.

    Shoot, they were more expensive than other voyagers when they were on the shelves. I remember my walmart selling them for $26 when every single other voyager was $21.

    Which ROTF starscream repaint we talking about. The only new one should be the starscream and sand blasted mudflap walmart two pack.


    Edit: Ah its the skywarp and ramjet repaints. I saw some unopened cases on a pallet in my store popped open the bottom and was like... what the? skywarp again?

    Not quite as nice as last years weird candy land of $9 revenge of the fallen deluxes, $11 Universe Ultras, and $20 animated leaders. Clearing out walmart warehouses sure, I fear this year is going to be nothing but revenge of the fallen overstock. The horror.

    Not really news.
    Walmart didn't sell them all off the first time around.
    They got warehoused during previous resets.
    They're probably being sent out again for black friday sell-off.

    I don't think this is really news is it? It may have just been some random cases that never were sent out of the warehouse.

    Well, if that is the case then can we hope for more of those $11 Voyagers? I missed that black Powerglide last time.

    I hope this happens where I live too. I saw them, skipped them, but regretted it later. I REALLY like the look of Skywarp. Also, my Wally's had the sale too. Got Seaspray for $16. :)

    What!? A Wal-Mart shelf pic without a Tuner Mudflap in the background? I'm thinking they're not cheaper because they're exclusives.

    yep went today and they were $22 in the transformer section, it was like they moved them from the clearance section and just gave it a basic yellow tag instead of a clearance tag

    my parents have actually bought one of the skywarps a month ago for my christmas, good thing i wanted it to have all three main movie seekers, or else i would be going "GROAN CLEARANCE FODDER!" :lol
