    I was just at one of my local Wal-Marts earlier and I noticed that the Cyb. Deluxes had their pices lowered from the usual (approximate) $10 price to, I think, $7.88. No other prices were adjusted and I KNOW they changed them because I was able to pull out the new tag and see the old $9-and-some-change tag behind it.

    Is this news? Is this wide-spread? Regardless, I'm digging out my recent Deluxe Class receipts and going back to retrieve some of my hard-earned (and then quickly-blown) money!

    Go, go, go!!!

    Is a store in your area running a sale, by chance?

    In my old area, Walmart would usually knock deluxes to that price to compete against another's sale (usually Target).

    Price drops like that will NOT be widespread, in case anyone is wondering

    I noticed the same thing yesterday. I went back and got a price adjustment on a few deluxes I bought last week.

    Keep in mind that Walmart will not make price adjustments on things bought more than a week ago. If they're dicks about it, just return and rebuy.

    Weird...it's defintiely not a sale because there are no sale tags and all the peg tags have been covered over with "real", "authentic" price tags if that makes any sense at all.

    Wait, WM won't honor giving me money back if they're having a "sale"/dropped their prices now and I bought them over a week ago!??! I think that's wrong (of them, not you, PP)...maybe I'll argue it if I get the chance. I know Target lets you do it if it's been more than a week....

    I too purchased some cybertron deluxe for $7.88. It was DX Monkey Optimus Prime. It was so good I will have to go back and get Megs now.


    Also, just wondering if anyone saw any other walmarts with cardboard boxes (cybertron branded boxes) with i believe wave 8 (unicron, brimstone, bendy prime, demolishor, cd hotshot, downshift?) in them?

    This sounds like the assortment I saw at Target the other day. Did they have the stickers on them?
