It really is so interesting how things vary from store to store. I found $4 vintage figures at one Walmart last night, but they did not have any Blu-Ray figs. They did have a fresh case of TPM though, so I figured I would buy a few of those on the cheap. Not so fast, my friend.
The TPM figures all had new stickers over their UPC which came up as $8.96 on the price scanner. So I didn't think I was going to have any luck sweet talking those for $4, and I bagged it.
This morning, I stopped at a different Walmart on the way in to work and found a fresh case of the Blu-Ray figures out on the pegs. (This same store had nothing last night) These did not scan at all at the self price-checker, but I was able to confirm the Black Endor Rebel variant came up as 4$. BINGO!
So I grabbed the Endor Rebel and all 5 new Blu-Ray figures and trucked them up to the register, explained how the new ones would not scan so could you please just scan the Endor rebel five times and I'll be on my way?
Well, it wasn't quite that easy - the guy working the register had to huddle with his manager and a stockboy, but eventually came back and said he would give them to me at the $4 price. DAMN RIGHT! He also had to key each one individually under some kind of generic SW listing, which was tedious and time consuming but well worth the wait.
So I scored all the new figures for $4, and will be returning the endor trooper at a later date. Glad I am finally in the crazy savings club...I was really concerned about missing out on this redonkulous deal. = WINNING!
