People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

I got some news regarding his sale.

I mentioned having goen to two Aldi stores yesterday and my experience at each. Well, today, I went to a third aldi location on the other side of town, and talked to one of the employees there.

She said that if they get any more figures in, they would probably come during the next week or so, and would be a case of the same set of figures that we've all been finding in these stores.

Since she mentioned "if we do get more in," that opens the possibility that there could be another round of figures coming. So, let us not give up completely after your first few trips to Aldi. We should all return to the stores every now and then to report back any new findings. Good hunting and Godspeed, fellow collectors. ;)

There wasn't much I was interested in, I've skipped on Ratchet and Hot Shot before and continue to do so, but when someone mentioned Knock Out, I figured I'd give a look. :) Suffice it to say, snagged me a car enthusiast, and he is AWESOME. I don't regret passing on him before, but I'm really glad I picked Knock Out up. :lol:

If I have one complaint, it's that his car windows restrict arm movement a tad.

Dropped by my local aldi and picked up Dead End, Knock Out, Hot Shot, and Vehicon. Was surprised at how many Vehicons and Airachnids they had.

After seeing this update my lovely wife headed out to Aldi and scored me two Vehicons. There were still some left as of earlier today, but three RiD Vehicons is my limit.

Thank you SO much for the heads up. Went to the local Aldi's and picked up an Airachnid, Knock Out, and a Vehicon. Didn't understand why everyone complained about Airachnid until I pulled her out of the package, but Knock Out is pretty good and the Vehicon is great. I need to go back and get a couple more Vehicons.

Glad people are able to find Vehicons that couldn't before. No Aldi stores near me, but luckily I've already got 4(3 from local retail) RiD Vehicons and there's been 2 sitting unbought at a local Target for the past 3 days if I really feel the need for 6.

Stopped by Aldi's on the way to the theater today. They had 3 Vehicons, but I only took one. All I need. Not interested in army building and I have the FE version that I found a few weeks ago.

Now to fully focus on saving up for other things xD

I checked two Aldi locations today. The one 8 miles out near a mall had a bunch of Dead Ends and a lone Knock Out. The one a mile from my house had a bunch of Vehicons, some Hot Shots, some Wheeljacks and Dead Ends, and an Airachnid. I snagged one Vehicon and Airachnid, because I'm on a tight budget. I may get one more Vehicon later.

Mostly because there are still a lot (though a lot fewer now, I suspect :lol: ) of people hunting Vehicons and to a lesser extent Airachnid.

Yeah, I see the point, but the kmart in Cedar Rapids\marion has most of those figs, they just want $18.99 a piece. :-(

Well, I was lucky that one of the Aldi stores is near a TRU I check occasionally and a Fry's Electronics where I can geek out about other stuff, so it was a good excuse to head out to that area. Another one is just a mile away from me in an area I go all the time. So I didn't go far out of my way to find these, and it was more reliable than finding a K-Mart which may or may not have the same figs and trying to do a price match, or price-matching at a Target or Wal Mart for toys I don't want.

I got Knockout and Airachnid at Aldi this weekend. (That's a weird store. I felt like I walked into a Bizzarro-universe grocery store.*) They also had Wheeljack, Dead End, and Ratchet (all of which I already had) and some Kre-O sets.

* The products were familiar - soup, cereal, frozen veggies, snacks, etc. - but they were all brands I had never heard of before. The cashiers all sat in chairs. You have to buy your own bags, so most people just put all their food back into the cart without bagging them and, presumably, just threw all that loose food into the back of their car. I felt so out-of-sorts I wondered if maybe someone had gone back in time and accidentally stepped on a butterfly, and now we lived in a universe that was mostly the same except we eat Clancy's potato chips and no one bags their groceries.

It seems to be a store for off-brand and imitation grocery products. I was pretty freaked out by the not-Lucky Charms. I bought a cheap bag of tortilla chips with my Transformers just to feel like I wasn't out of place, and they're pretty good. I dunno if I'll make it a regular stop for grocery (or Transformer) shopping, but I'm glad I found out about this deal.

Sorry to pester again but so many of you are lucking out finding characters so I might as well ask again. I have no Aldi anywhere near me. Anyone feel like grabbing a few and holding on to them for me for a bit? Im selling some stuff on ebay at the moment and will try to pay soon. My area is saturated with scalpers and I cant find the ones I want at retail. :/

Wheeljack, Arcee, Knock Out, Airachnid, Deadend, Kup, Rumble.

Thanks for the tip! :BOWDOWN:

I just happened to make a little side trip on the way home from work to a local Aldi to see what there was. I wasn't really expecting anything but Ratchets and Bees since this thread has been around for a while, but lo and behold, they had like FIVE Vehicons. FIVE! :DANCE:

I bought three and left two for someone else. I now have my army of three-actually four if you count the FE Vehicon I got from TRU today as well. Guess I'll make him Commander Steve. :P

I wonder if Aldi will be restocking these, or if it was a one-time shipment. Think it's worth going back to look for Vehicon if they didn't have it last week?

Ive been posting and asking for people to help me grab the ones I cant find and finally had one guy reply. He said he went to his Aldi and asked about a restock and they said another shipment was coming this weekend or next week and it should be the same assortment. So Id say its worth checking out again.
