    In last last 48 hours I've seen Soundwave marked down to $30 on Brickseek and in the Walmart app. After striking out a few places I found two of them locally for $30 a piece. I expected the boxes to be garbage, but they were near mint. Nicest examples I had seen.

    If you've been waiting, now is the time to strike!

    I noticed the same thing in my area via Brickseek. I may have to grab one locally if it is truly in stock.

    Found him, in the clearance section, today for $30. Already have one, but it will be good to have one MISB as well.

    Where in Walmart do they have the toy clearance section?
    Is it in the toy isle where Transformers/action figures are?

    The Clearance Section is usually one complete aisle, but it's location varies by individual store layout. Some have it up front, as the aisle between the seasonal promo and the Hallmark section. Others have it back near the entrance to Lawn and Garden. Some have it closer to Hardware. In any event, there's usually a big yellow Clearance header hanging above the aisle.

    It is just a general "Clearance" section, in different places in different stores (way to run a business...), that is separate and not near the regular toy department. I asked an employee, who didn't know where it was, who then asked abother employee, who stated they didn't have any more of the figures/item if it was not with the regular Transformers section in the toy department. I then went looking on my own, found the section marked "clearance", an entire separate isle, labeled with a large yellow "Clearance" sign, and found I believe 7 Soundwaves, wedged in between a bunch of other toys. Long story short, you are entirely on your own when in the store...look everywhere.

    I finally picked one up at $30. Never gonna open it, and it looks great.
    Here's hoping he drops even more, since most Walmarts in my area have at least 5+ of these.

    Now, if only those tapes were less than $20!!

    Someone in Texas found it at their Wal-Mart marked down to $10. It was on the the official coupons thread.

    Unfortunately it is still at full $50 price at many other markets that even still carry it though.
