Allegedly, someone found MP-30 Ratchet at a Walmart for $50.
I would treat that as an isolated incident. It’s either a shipping mistake or someone bought something online through a third party using Walmart.com and then returned it there.
The photo showed a shelf label and they were about 6 deep. If it was a .com return they wouldn’t have a home for it on the planogram.
I do concede the photo I saw , you couldn’t make out the shelf label so who knows if it was proper for ratchet or not.
Yeah it was either a return of a case or a case was shipped to them by mistake, and they printed a custom price tag. There’s nothing in their system for Ratchet from what I can find on Brickseek.
I figured...but what if... what if... it where real and this was the start of being able to find masterpiece figures at Walmart...
Nice packing job Amazon....
Did you mark the “gift” option? I’m told that is supposed to prevent that. I’ve never had them do that on my orders, but I did start selecting it on every order just in case.
I’ve never marked my orders as “gift”... this is the first time something arrived like this and I’ve bought on Amazon since 2004.
Moe, Larry and Curly are back folks!
If Reflector can do it, why can’t we??
Btw, still no chest pins.
A box of seekers at target in Florissant last night. I was there 10 min before closing. I finally found g1 soundwave, and grabbed the last one at Walmart in my area. I am surprised how fast he went.
Maplewood Walmart has two each of Refraktor, Red Alert, and Brunt, plus one Springer.
Saw this post in the repack thread and knew exactly where this was. Ive literally found repacks at that location.
Yeah, I've started marking every bot I order from Amazon as a gift for reasons like this. That one must have been a return too, cos my Skywarp came in a Hasbro box with an insert to keep it stabilized, and then in a bigger Amazon box.
I would definitely call them on it - that is bs and then some.
Its not just at malwort. I've occasionally found a few at the Target in Fairview too. Found an Energon Arcee repacked in an TFP Wheeljack about 3 years ago - they sold it to my kid for $5. Target seems to just be more on the ball about not accepting repacks. Someone local has been a real a$$hat for a while now and really needs to knock it off.
My Skywarp came the same way. Hasbro shipper (with stabilizer) inside Amazon box. Sideswipe set just came in the hasbro shipper. Very glad neither came in its true box with stickers all over it. The packaging for those two are well worth keeping for display. Love how that mural lines up. That needs to be what hasbro does on all its packaging.....forcing us to buy EVERY figure as well lol.

I apparently missed the Longhaul. Boo.

Literally standing here deciding whether to get Jetfire. Ugh.
EDIT: I'm gonna pass for now, sadly. Anyone around here want it, it's here.
Wonder if they outer box was damaged and they were like screw it slap the label on it. Mine came just in the brown hasbro box, not ordering as a gift.
I highly recommend turning around and going back.
Not the day after paying my property tax...
