I'm curious does anyone know how many Elves come in the walMart CMF display?

reason I ask was at WalMart doing some shopping when I saw the CMF 3 display and checked out 4 of the bags, 1st bag was an elf, and 4th bag was an elf only checked 4 bags but found 2 elves either i'm very lucky or there are alot of Elves in that display.

Wal-Mart doesn't really care what goes out on the shelves when stocking. They don't have time to check what is what.

Yea, Walmart always does things horribly. Finding all of those elves is not horrible, however.

Actually I've had better experiances at WalMart then at places like Toy's R Us, Kmart(that place always looks like a bomb hit it) and even Target. my WalMart everything is always easy to find and such, and the place is always neat if a bit crowded with customers.

Well what I meant was that they don't have time nor give a damn about the CM figs. Only someone who worked in the Toy Department and is familiar with Lego would really know. I used to work for Wal-Mart in toys, and I just opened up boxes and put stuff out. :P

I've never seen CM figs at Walmart... but maybe they just got them! I'll have to check the WM around me. I bought 3 boxes of series 3 from Toys R Us and out of the 180 minifigs I got I only got 3 fishermen and 6 elves... so to buy 4 packs... and get 2 elves... hahaha Not too shabby

Didn't say I bought 4 packs but checked or "Felt" 4 packs only bought the 2 Elves, which are the only Elves I have too, in fact the only series 3 figs I have.

Oh I had just misread it then... I thought you were saying you bought 4 packs... that's cool though... I thought that series 3 was pretty good... I guess every series has its awesome minis and its not so desirable minis.
