Rebelscum reader Jason M. from Mansfield, TX wrote in with the image linked above showing massive discounts on The Black Series products at his local Walmart. He was also able to confirm with another store in the North Texas area that the 3 3/4-inch figures are $5.84, the 6-inch are $9.84, and the Titanium vehicles are $4.93. This may be a regional clearance, but with savings like this, its a good idea to check your local Walmart!
