    Well, local Walmarts have definitely been restocking - this one is the winner, though. I genuinely LOL'd when I saw this.

    I'll save your eyes - there's 21. Twenty one Optimus Primes, over $1K's "worth" of Optimus on the shelf. "C'mon, clearance..."

    The price didnt drop because of the goodness of Hasbros heart. they were clearanced out. 70 some bucks was the actual retail price for Devastator.

    as a fellow artist I appreciate this and your work. The face is really well done! However, there is a fan art forum for this type of work not relevant here.

    I hit 4 Walmart stores today hoping to snag G1 Gears and Warpath (success on the fourth and final store) but the 2nd store I hit had 23 reissue G1 Optimus Primes:

    Well, that would be a prime number of Primes...

    Perhaps intentional? Probably not.

    I'm seeing those piles of Optimus Primes and wondering how many are going to fall to the floor and end up with dinged boxes.

    Sure would be nice if the Walmarts here felt like carrying toys once in awhile.

    No, it's alright, keep stuffing the stores where all the penny-pinchers shop and I'll just pick it up on clearance in November.

    Looks like at least one has sold then. :D 

    I can answer that.

    One shall stand, one shall fall.

    This. I keep checking this thread hoping to see news of the price starting to go down like the previous reissues. I don't want to pay $50 for a trailer-less Prime, but if it drops to around $25, I then wouldn't mind picking up one to open so I can keep my TRU reissues set sealed. I've got a couple of spare older trailers I could put with him.

    Yea, I think $29.99 is my buy price. I have the crappy 25th, the commemorative in its box, and various stages of G1 originals, but I like these boxed figures. Bought all the others and have versions of them, as well as two sets of the minis, so I figure keep it rolling.

    People are going to be really upset when Soundwave shows up with a $60 price tag.

    In the Soundwave reissue thread, it's been shown on Brickseek at $50.
