    Wow, that’s insane. No stores in this state have even received their stock yet and it’s already showing $35. I guess this is just like when Commander Jetfire was half off and he hadn’t even been available at 2/3rds of stores by that point.

    With what's going on in the world and the fact that it's a repaint with Play-Doh, I'm surprised it ever went for $60, to begin with. That said, I'll admit I'm surprised they put it on clearance so soon. That has to be some kind of a record.

    Probably helps that returns/price adjustments are canceled. They likely had quite a few cancellations when the mystery turned out not to be a mystery.

    Walmart still allows returns on toys. It's only certain types of items that they won't let you return.

    No wonder retail is dying...

    No one:

    Wal-Mart: Ok then, we'll just clearance this brand - new item that is going for big bucks online to half price for no reason...

    It's nothing new with them to be honest.

    Hell, when MP-01 first hit one of my Wal-marts oh so many years ago, he was on discount for $10 after a week of being on the shelves.

    It’s most likely a decision made by a computer algorithm rather than an active person and it also likely still turns a profit.

    Here is my guess:

    If my WalMart is anything to go by, the backlogged supplies are starting to come in now that things are opening up, and some shelves are going from bare to crowded. Somewhere there is an algorithm that has calculated that they have turned a profit on the Netflix UM figures, and everything else from this point on is gravy. Since they need the shelf space for other figures, he is being priced to move.
