    I recently purchased a G1 Optimus Prime w/ box and it has a price tag from a store that I am not familiar with. Does anybody know what store this was originally bought at? I realize the price tag says "Self-Service" but I'm not familiar with that store - was there really a store called "Self-Service"? Or is it related to Service Merchandise? With a name like that, Google is no help. Anybody know? I attached pics below. Thanks!

    In my experience, self-service is just what the price ticket itself is called. It's a self-service ticket.

    It looks like a Kiddie City price tag, but it could be from anywhere that bought that price sticker stock. Its not toys r us or woolworths they had their names on it.

    Kmart was in buisness also at thet time and Sears was one of the largest toy sellers of the time too.

    Looks like a TG&Y label, but yeah it is a generic tag.

    I don't know, but that's a well placed price tag. I used to apply those things in my first job and its damn difficult to get it that precise in the corner. :D
