Whens a discount not a discount?

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

So I went into Wal Mart yesterday to get an oil change and while there I decided to browse the toys (nothing there) and clearance section. Wal Mart has an exclusive Transformers box set with a tiger striped jet called Fear Swoop (AKA Hooligan). Its a Deluxe figure and it ccomes with 2 legends class figures and retails for $25. This is way to expensive for a repaint as if you bout the set as individuals it would only be $20-$22.

I found this set in the clearence section and they had STACKS of them! I looked above and it had a huge CLEARENCE sign and below that was the price . . .

$24.00

one day I stopped by the clearance aisle to see the nemesis wave on clearance, picked up a punisher black variant for $6, the next day I went back for the rest of the set being as the price was so cheap, they went back up to $10 something. bullsh*t

then they'll knock down stuff you really don't want by 10 bucks lol. Look at those LCBH figures, they went from 13.00 or somthing to 5.00 after christmas when nobody wanted them anymore but when we wanted them they wouldn't move an inch.

Ah yes but in the world of walmart they could be making 300% more than last year but it wouldn't be good enough. Sam Walton's spinning in his grave.

that sounds about right. I never saw him. I know that those movie Seeker jets that were a walmart exclusive this time around never went down from their 25-30.00 price so you'll see a ton of them. Walmart doesn't want to mark things down anymore. I have my dad look for them all the time for me at New Castle and he says the idea of a discount is no longer a 20.00 figure for 5.00 but a few bucks at best unless it's really old. Heck they don't seem to be wanting to give the employees the extra x-mas discount this year that they did every november. I bet you look that up online someplace and you'd get it for under 20.00.
