I was unable to find these on brickseek through the search option.  Do you have the DPCI?  My 4 year old son is obsessed with Sonic and we're about to redesign his bedroom.  I'd love to bring these home to put on his wall.  Thanks!.

I found these posters at WalMart randomly sitting in the toy section and nothing around where they would go. I also checked the poster area and found nothing. Does anyone know where these are or if they have more anywhere, or were these something I missed somehow? I saw on BrickSeek that every other store had these for $4 except for the one I happened to be at, which was $5
I grabbed it because they were cool and I'm a huge Sonic fan, but where were these from?attachicon.gifIMG_20190811_204607.jpgattachicon.gifIMG_20190811_204621.jpg

Sure looks like it. I was answering the question 'where were these from?'

Found 2 copies of Ducktales for PS3 at mine but the lady only scanned one so I guess I got 2 for the price of 1

Also at another Walmart, I found an opened and very used copy of Time Crisis 3 for PS2 in the clearance section, but couldnt buy it because it was for claims 😭

I believe I had to search the barcode to find them, I can check my phone search real quick if I can find it. Otherwise it'll have to wait until I get home to get any info.

Also when I was asking where they were from, I meant in store. I didn't see a place where this would be stored.

Ok here is the Sonic 3 2 pack poster link:
https://brickseek.co.../?sku=838558928

It doesn't even have an image on BrickSeek either, which is weird. I think that's a first for me too.

The P5 steelbook actually showed as out of stock at the store I got it in so you never know, just have to chance it if you happen to be there

Found 3 copies of Muramasa for Wii at a store near me...$15 each. Also had a copy of Mushroom Men for Wii, too, but not sure on the price.

As someone who just recently got a Wii U, it's nice to find sealed games hidden amongst all the leftover crap...wish there was a store to find a better selection at, though. I remember Roses used to carry games, and you could find Genesis and SNES stuff all the way into the PS2 days...but it doesn't seem like they carry anything gaming anymore.

You still have Roses around? I think the chain closed and none informed your store...

I also remember finding the older classic stuff at Roses well after those systems died.  In fact, the Roses near my parents' house is still around and I think I may take a drive to it the next time I'm visiting.

Not sure if this is a joke or not, but they are still around, surprisingly. The last time I was in one was a few years back and boy, it was a sad looking store.

I have a Roses and a Roses Express in my city! Both opened this decade, but still feel weirdly dilapidated. They're full-fledged hood establishments, but some great deals can be found on food and housewares.

Unfortunately, the only video game I've ever seen at Roses is a disc-only copy of some High School Musical game.

Our Roses shut down back in the 80's. Given it was during my early childhood its luncheonette (and their fries), sticks out in my memory more than anything.

Roses?  Haha, we have one in Ocean City, MD...one in Salisbury (but I've never been to it since it's basically in the ghetto...might have to check it out now though), and then one in Seaford, DE.  Pretty sure there's more around just outside that radius too. 

 

But no, they haven't carried actual gaming stuff forever except for some odd random used stuff I've seen (though that may have changed).  Back in the day used to be similar to K-Mart or something as far as gaming/music/movies.  I got a many cassette tapes and SNES games there way back when!  

 

Last few times I've been to the OC and Seaford ones though, ouch.  They're decent for cheap throwaway stuff (toys, electronics, towels) and snacks and that's about it.  I'm surprised they're still trucking along when places like K-Mart have all but died out when K-Mart was a million times better and cleaner.

I've seen a good amount of Rose's in SE OH and SW PA. Great discount store--reminds me of old Good Lots.

Kmarts went out because of sears though and company mismanagement.  They'd still be around if it wasn't for that.  Many got turned into crappy sears grands idiotically.  I miss my kmart.

Wasn't marked "clearance" exactly but Pilars of Eternity II was 9.93 (59.99 everywhere else still).

This, Kmart was staying competitive long past many other big box stores had died, and even made a few honest attempts in the later years (old school CAG members remember the Kmart gamer guy) but Sears really drove them straight into the ground by trying to turn Kmart into Sears at a time when Sears was already struggling.  Growing up you'd see Kmart in mid-sized towns, subburbs, etc.  Rather than trying to find a way to compete with Walmart and find their niche (like Target did) they just started closing Kmarts focusing on the ones doing the best but the only Kmarts doing well were all in really poor neighborhoods where there simply wasn't another big box retailer (establishing them as a brand that only existed in "shitty" neighborhoods).  Then dollar stores blew up and they couldn't even compete for that market anymore.
