I went out to four Wal-Marts tonight. I wasn't able to find any new figures.
That in itself is crazy.
Nobody should be able to go to four different Walmart stores and find nothing new.
Well there was TPM stuff on the shelves it has just been there for a month or so, I wasn't counting it as 'new'. I still have yet to see a 'Vintage' Maul though. And in all fairness, the Denver area has been **** for toys for at least a year and a half. Which makes it all the more crazy what happened to me today.
My girlfriend found all of Wave 11 for me today, after a price adjustment they only rang up at $4 a pop.
When I was back tonight getting the price adjusted, I stopped by the SW section to see if anything else had turned up that day or if there were any army builders worth buying. I grabbed two Endor Rebels and two Naboo troopers, the Endor Rebels came up at $4 each and the Naboo guys came up at full price. So I asked the clerk why the other ones weren't $4 and she didn't understand either. By this time a line was starting to form behind me while she was waiting on her CSM to help her out. The CSM came over and said that I could have all of them for $4 each and walked away. So the cahier continued to ring them up and the total came up to $19 or something, then she all of a sudden said, "Wait, I did that wrong. I rang two up at $5." So she preceded to start voiding them, somehow she ended up taking off all the two $4 figures and the total for all four figures came up to $10 even before tax. She gave me the new total, and I asked if she rang them all up. She said, "Yup, I just voided the other ones." There was a long line behind me and after trying once to do the right thing I was content to walk away with four more figures for $10.80, about the cost of a single figure normally.
All told in the last 24 hours I've bought 11 figures for a total of $40.80, including tax.
Mon Cal Pilot
Two Endor Rebels
Two Rebel Fleet Troopers
Two Naboo Security Troopers
And on top of that my girlfriend's mom bought me another RFT and a Stormtrooper.
All told I've bought at least as many figures at retail in the past 24 hours as I've bought at retail in about the last year... That's pretty crazy.
