    Is this a sign that they sold really, really poorly? No chance of any new special editions, huh.

    Too bad, slick packaging but an odd choice of molds.

    That is crazy. Out of all places.
    There is a Marshall's somewhere near me, gotta look it up. I am shocked about the $9.99 price tag too. Maybe HTS had so much they sent it to stores to be rid of them?

    Did Hasbro ever drop the prices of these on their website? They were originally $15.99 I think. I mean if Marshalls has them they probably didn't pay more than $4-$5 each to buy them from Hasbro. Why wouldn't Hasbro just sell them on their site for like $8 each?

    Either way I'm kind of on the hunt for Overkill and that Megs. I'm pretty surprised they still have any Dragstrips left, he had to be the the most popular of the bunch

    It would be pretty funny if these were picked up for scalping at this price. They would be in for quite a surprise since there isn't really profit to be made on these guys

    Wow that is random. Dragstrip is definitely the best of the bunch though Overkill is cool too.

    There's a Marshall's around in Queens, NYC. Going to check it out tomorrow after work, hope I can find any of these special editions instead of spending an arm and a leg for them online. Will update tomorrow if anything.

    Didn't see any at the local Marshalls yesterday, though I already grabbed the set of 'em from HTS a long time ago.
