Back when TAC was first hitting, my local Wal-Mart had a ton of cases on a pallet, but had no room for figures to go out because of this damn figure:
They had something like 46 of that one figure. No other figures on the pegs.
So, what I did was take all 46 of them, and put them in their promotional aisle, thinking they'd put out those TAC figures... well, the next day I went back, the pegs were stocked with the TAC figures, which was great.
Over the next week, those TAC figures sold through, I think there were maybe 3-4 figures left... and the store put all those Naboo guards back on the pegs around that time. I then put them all back in the promo aisle, and literally every day for about a week they'd end up back on the pegs... finally one day, I took all the Naboo guards and put them in a cart, and pushed it all the way over to the customer service section by where they have return boxes... I just left it there... never saw the figures again on the pegs, they were in the promo aisle and on clearance within a week. Then TAC started being stocked a lot better.
