It was in stock a lot yesterday and for a while too. I picked up a few more and didn’t even have my cart scalped during the overly long 20 page checkout process on their site. Where is all this stock coming from? How is there not one anonymous Hasbro employee that’s a JTA member and posts inside information about things like this?
Cart scalped? Is tgat when you have the figure in your cart, it sells out from Walmart and the price jumps to 3rd party cost? I’ve had items go out of stock during checkout but it never occurred to me that it could happen that way.
Lol no sorry. I think I use scalp too generally…like “smurf” haha. Add to cart, confirm it’s in the cart, click checkout, blah blah, other things, yada yada, pay with paypal, login to paypal, redirect back to wm, complete purchase…..sorry there was a problem with your order. Items from your cart are no longer in stock…
Oh, ok, got it. I just call that getting screwed. 🙂
Gone at that price, but you can now pay 3rd party price for it at over $40. Don’t think so.
What would be cool is if you could be a scalp…uh 3rd party Walmart seller, buy up all the stock when it comes in stock with ‘actually’ Walmart, and then immediately offer that stock for sale for $40. That would save so much time as a scal… uh 3rd party seller and everybody wins…
Everybody? I don’t see how the collector wins. Those figures shouldn’t be $40. The Scarif Trooper and Deathtrooper are beautiful works of art, but it’s mass produced art. I don’t have the Scarif Trooper and there’s no way I’d pay more than $20 for it. And for me even $20 is pushing it. I do get what your saying about expediting the process and if you don’t have a problem paying aftermarket prices that’s totally cool.
I can’t tell if you’re continuing on with my massive sarcastic reply or if I came across as serious. Lol, literally everyone wins EXCEPT for the collector! It was funny (not funny) imagining a 3rd party wm seller clicking “buy all” for 10.83 and immediately reselling that stock for $40.
Lol. I get that you were being sarcastic.
My biggest “forum fear” is that I’ll try to be sarcastic but it will be just believable enough to get people riled up and think I’m serious…you know, like what Paul does. 😀
It took me a long time and near-banishment from the site to finally understand that Paul is very sarcastic but really a great guy.
Popping back in and out at $10.83 – just grabbed a couple
just popped back in . love this site-to-store option
I sense that Walmart is trying to (smartly) wring every penny out of their GOOD exclusive figures before dumping the duds on Five Below.
Do you think 5B would even want them? They aren’t selling for $5.84 at Walmart. I don’t think 84 cents less is going to get people pull the trigger. Plus the TFA figures 5B has noware going nowhere. Only Unmasked Kylo, Squad Leader Stormtrooper, Resistance Rey and Han sell. And of those Han and Rey actually took a while to sell. Really it’s just Kylo and the Stormtrooper. Now, if Five Below got the RO Walmart figures? That would be great. Actually, as I am typing this I just realized that Hasbro might not want the figures at discount chains because they are going to repack them in TVC. Does Hasbro have any say n the matter once retail has purchased them? Normally I’d think not, but they are(or were) exclusive to Walmart so idk if they could actually unload them on 5B. You’d probably know better than I. Btw, how did it go trimming down your collection? I hope you got a good price for the stuff. I actually feel privileged to have the 2006-12 stuff because it would take a crap load of money to buy all that stuff for what it’s going for now. Hopefully that means you made a nice profit on your original investment. 🙂
AND WE’RE BACK (as of 10:48am est) just copped one to flank my other one.
It’s in now just added 1 to cart
Back up – filling out my ranks and with free shipping (site 2 store) I can do this all day lol
Please post proof for the naysayers LOL!
Ask and you shall receive.
Why is it that EVER SINGLE TIME I go to one of these price links the JTA price says around $10 and the website has it listed for around $40? It’s not just some times, it’s not just most of the time. It’s literally every. single. time. How does it go from in-stock at $10 to in-stock at $40?
Cause you weren’t up at 9:12am EST checking the website…
LOL. Pretty much. It has been popping in and out of stock MULTIPLE times since we posted this.
We have a lot of traffic and readers. Some (about 40-100) just refresh the front page every coupe of minutes. I find that insane, but that’s what happens.
These have consistently sold out in under a min, however they can show as instock for up to 30mins
Honestly I refresh the front page at least once an hour. Mainly because Hasbro is screwed right now.
It’s there right now. Look for “1 other seller from $10.83” – I didn’t buy them but it let me put 9 in the cart so I’m guessing there are 9 right now that are left
For some reason “AMI Ventures Inc” shows up as the preferred seller, probably because shipping is free (but so is ship to store at walmart… stupid algorithms…)
Yes! They are still in stock!
That’s what the link always directs me to.
in right now…got to check additional sellers and walmart $10.83 shows up
see the pic …lower right hand corner. do “compare all sellers” and choose walmart
OMG! Just posted this! 🙂 Too funny!
Check it out. The ERG is STILL IN STOCK for $10.83 despite saying $40. Look
at the bottom and click the compare link. You can get yours for $10.83!
HERE IS THE DIRECT LINK: http://bit.ly/2gWbItF
is there an echo in here….??????????????????
LOL! Saw your comment too late! 🙂
no worries boss…hope my email did not bore you. have a great weekend….
gone as of 1:19 pm
Gotta keep more tabs the next few days and hopefully nab a few of these guys.
If you’re a scalper, is there any more guaranteed 200-400% return than on this figure? My dark side can see the attraction of that lifestyle.
