Ran into a Hasbro rep on my Joe hunt today.
Apparently the local Walmart had put out the movie figs early.
As a "secret shopper" he nailed them with a violation of street date fine
Apparently street date round these parts will be strictly enforced until July 10th. Including Toys'r us.

10 grand isn't even petty cash for Wal-Mart.

A Drop in the bucket, but I wouldn't give anything to be in the employee's shoes when the manager gets the bill.

Heck, Wal Mart Manager probably walked up to the nearest register, opened it, gave the Hasbro Rep 10,000 and told him to have a nice day!!
I find it really odd that you ran into a Hasbro rep. I won't question how you know or anything but that is kinda impressive that WM got slapped with a fine and you happen to walk into it.

As crazy as it sounds, we run into the reps pretty frequently here in town and they will stop and chat with us for a bit. Glad to see someone nailed for not sticking with the street date. The stores should all be on an equal footing if the manufacturer is mandating sales on a particular date and not before.

I have a feeling that if Hasbro really attempts to enforce this, Wal-Mart will tell them to stick their fines up Optimus Prime's exhaust pipe as they always have the option of refusing to sell Hasbro products.
I imagine that Wal-Mart deleting Hasbro from their inventory would hurt Hasbro a LOT more than it would hurt Wal-Mart.
