This morning I went into my local target and it said they were having a sale. I went there and checked the dcuc part of the isle and they had some old jlu? I looked through and found a steppenwolf dcuc figure and to my disbelief I found a sealed 3 pack with volcana, hawk and green arrow. I was amazed. Has anything like this ever happened to you? It was sold to me for $ 7.99. Also I picked up some more modern jlu the old Bruce pack and the Galatea pack :).

They had a freaking Volcana pack just sitting there? That's like finding money.

I know I was amazed. Its like 130$ on eBay and I got it for 8$ do you know how this could be, because jlu isn't even supposed to be in targets and this was from 07. Do you think if they release the 6 pack with volcana it with bring down the price on this? Or is it a whole different figure -kalibak :twisted:

Most likely it is a return or something that was found sitting in a very lost and dark corner of the back during a year end cleanup.

Not sure how yours happened to be there, but I worked in retail a very long time and I know sometimes stock gets shoved into a corner and forgotten. It could have been on layaway and never picked up, returned, or even fallen behind a shelf in the back of the warehouse and found during a cleanout. There are many possibilities. Great find, though.

Sounds like someone had one stashed somewhere and it was found and put out. An employee may have had it hidden in back or I have even read about how some people hide merchandise under the risers on the bottom shelves, refusing to pay anything more than 90% off clearance price for anything. Regardless - congratulations!
