I kid you not, someone returned E1 figures and they went out full price on the pegs... THey disappeared so either someone dumb bought them thinking they got a deal on some rare goodies, or someone realized, "This ****'s old, who put this out!?" and took it away.
Full price though... I just started laughing.
I wouldn't be surprised if these were hidden by someone and got lost in the shelves or something... That happens too, and these were "popular" figures last year, mostly due to the gold coin I think, and perhaps someone hid them and they didn't get discovered till now. I think it's possible. I saw some McQ figures just magically appear this October at a store that, I'd bet, were hides someone made that were in a department that doesn't get cleaned up too often. With the resets going on at most WM's right now, the spring cleaning maybe turned those up.
