    Raced to Walmart hoping that I could get an exclusive Powerglide since i couldn not grab one online.
    And they were not on the TF/Action figure aisle, but on the clearance aisle, which i call "The Landfill."

    and tucked in there somewheres was the FearSwoop Set:

    This level of suck sucks the sack, yo.
    and it may be hard to read, but that IS NOT the right spot or label for that FearSwoop.

    Nice "landfill". TF wise mine sucks. There's a Supreme TFA OP for like 49.88. I did score a Bionicle Axalara for $20 though (was $80).

    Either someone got lazy or that's a poor stashing spot.

    It is similar to that here at my local Walmart, except they put new Star Wars toys/vehicles on the clearance aisle. I've alerted employees about it, yet nothing ever gets moved.

    It's called a lazy employee who is just looking for a spot to put something.

    At least your store has all those figures, despite their location.

    I was about to flip today when I went to Walmart when I thought they were out of the exclusive Powerglide figures. All I saw were two Hardheads across from the Transformers aisle and one Skyfall in the ROTF Leaders section. I was about to give up and get a Deluxe Mudflap when I decided to dig a little bit and found one Powerglide redeco behind some Leader Primes and Jetfires.

    Is this really surprising? I've seen far, far worse at WM many a times.

    I HATE the powerglide mold...I just ripped one apart for my Superion custom.
    I just don't see the appeal of this figure.

    I really wish my wal-mart had such a nice clearance aisle.
    I wonder if it even HAS a clearance aisle....

    Interesting. I was at Wal-Mart on Friday and they had Powerglide and Hardhead in the TF aisle, but then on Saturday they were gone. I assumed that somebody must have bought them, but perhaps they were moved to the clearance aisle.

    It's not what they have or don't have, it's the fact that they're being REALLY bad about facing and restocking.

    It's a common problem, a local Zellers I check now and then always looks like a bomb went off in the aisles. They just cram whatever they can in wherever. New stuff you look for is impossible to find, and then later it goes on clearance, never actually having graced the peg set out for it in the planogram.
