My local Wal-Mart finally got in a case of Voyagers that had one Dreadwing, but since I already had him on order from www.hasbrotoyshop.com
, I left it on the shelf.
Apparently the Prime line Voyagers have gone up a bit in price at Wal-Mart from $19.96 to $21.96, but thankfully I've noticed the shelf price has gone unchanged by the employees. I recently bought a second Bulkhead (to be painted up as a Generations Trailbreaker) and it rang up $21.96. I disputed the price as it was still listed as $19.96 on the shelf. Fortunately for me (though sadly when you look at as a whole), I got it for $19.96 based on my word alone since they've cut back on employees, there wasn't anyone to double-check the shelf price.
At another Wal-Mart I was able to find and purchase a Prime Vehicon, but it wasn't on file when the cashier scanned it at the register. My honesty kicked in and I informed her it was priced on the peg for $15.47. Once again the cashier went on my word because they don't have the employees they used to have to do a price check, let alone enough employees to make sure that everything that comes in through the back is in the system and scannable.
Funny, I brought it up about this price hike a few weeks back on Deluxe figures and especially Star Wars action figures selling at $10 a pop. I guess it just hadn't hit everywhere and affected everyone yet enough to earn a forum discussion until now.
