Went to walmart with a gift card hoping to get Soul Caliber IV. It wasn't there, so I got a shy guy mini collectible figure instead :D

That looks like an HD CRT! I have been seeing a lot of HD CRTs at the veterans thrift store here lately. Most are slotted for recycle, I think due to lack of space on the sales floor. A real shame, I just know years from now I'll regret not snagging a spare 200 pound backup. Even a budget line regular tube TV can't be bought new anymore.
