No doubt Airachnid is a block of processed horse meat. I'm one of those guys that (if it has an official toyline) needs to have all of the cartoon characters as toys, crappy or not. :P

i dont care how many the store has you dont buy 6 of the same figure at the same time, thats just frakin wrong man. But with that aside ive never heard of this store, and the nearest one is 45min away (thats if traffic is good) so theres no point. Ill just wait for the inevitable walmart sale.

It's called army building. Plenty of collectors do it when there's a generic guy with a toy.

Never in my life, have I seen ANY transformers action figures at an Aldi. And yet, they have them on sale at $9.99? Wow. Maybe I can find 4 vehicons and be done. Or maybe one and just call him Steve :grin:

What's wrong with buying a couple for myself and four more for two friends? I didn't even clean them out. Besides I've searched long and hard for Vehicons since they were first released in wave 3 and before today found a grand total of one.

The best part of Aldi's selection is that there are NO Bumblebees. I found them this past Sunday right after they put them out. If I remember correctly, their selection includes Ratchet, Wheeljack, Deadend, Vehicon, Hotshot, Airachnid, Knockout. I admit that I picked up an extra Airachnid for its helicopter blades to cobble together a spider mode. It sort of redeems the toy, but not by much.

As soon as I saw this article, I drove right out to my local Aldi's (only 10 minutes away) and lo and behold, they had a buttload of the Vehicons. I didn't want to deprive anyone else of getting their hands on one so I only bought one but if they are still there in a week, I'll pick up another just so I can have one in vehicle mode and one in robot mode.

Also, Found some Vehicons, and also a Rumble in the local Krogers for 12.99 (Krogers only have legend-delux I believe), and another Vehicon in HEB. Check these places if you have them around you!

Just a note. You better have a debit card or bring some cash with you. They don't take credit card.

Besides Airachnid, I also saw Dead End which none of the Walmarts, Targets, and TRUs around me carry that.

Went to two Aldi stores today.

First Aldi had TWO VEHICONS!!!!!! Got both.

Second Aldi had Airachnid! Got her.

Both also had Hot Shot, Wheeljack, Dead End, Ratchet, and Knock Out. Left them, but NO BUMBLEBEES!!! :grin: :grin: :grin:

I also got more info on this sale. The sale started up this past Wednesday and everything they had was put out on shelves. Both places had no more items in the back and it's all first come first serve while supplies last.

There was also an outlet store nearby that had all four DOTM Dinobot Mini-Cons (Dualor, Rav, Triceradon, and Catilla), which I also picked up. :mrgreen:

I find it hilarious how Hasbro floods major stores like Wal*Mart and Target with Bumblebee figures to the point they don't order later waves of a series causing collectors to waste time and money looking for "chase" figures only to flood some regional chain months later with nothing but the formerly hard to find ones.

Obviously Hasbro has a hell of a lot more money then I do but sometimes their tactics just confuse me.
Looking for the Megatron gun (or just the stock) that came with 20th anniversary MP Optimus Prime.

Went to the local Aldi's today after seeing this and was amazed to get a Vehicon, Airachnid, and Dead End. They also had Ratchet and Knockout as well. Can't believe after months of searching and driving all over wasting my time these turn up at a discount grocery store I pass by every day. The place has been there for a decade and this is the first time I have ever went into it :lol:

Guys,
This post is 100% true. I have an Aldis right down the street. I thought they only sold food there. When I went in there tonight I damn near shit myself. They had 1 Airachnid, 3 ratchets, a couple Wheeljacks, and like 7 vehicons. I've never seen the vehicons in the store before, only online. I picked up three vehicons and might pick up 1 more and Airachnid tomorrow. Happy hunting if you can find an Aldis. :grin:

On a whim I decided to see if there was an Aldi's anywhere near my town. Imagine how excited I was to find out there is one in my town. Now imagine how even more excited I was to find a Vehicon when I got there. I was only able to get one because that's all they had, but man am I happy to finally have this guy in my collection.

They also had a couple Hot Shots, a couple Wheeljacks and an Airachnid (which I totally would have picked up if I didn't just get it in from HasbroToyShop.com.
