Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx in Portland, OR, carrying figures for cheap

Postby iaconportland » Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:32 pm

Hey TF fans, just wanted to follow up on an article I saw on the news page. Someone had posted that they were finding RTS figures at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Ross stores for as little as $7.00. Well, I followed up on that today and found a lot of delightful surprises.

First stop was Marshalls in Beaverton, OR, where I purchased RTS Deluxe Class Perceptor ($6.99) and HTFD Voyager Sea Spray (9.99). They also had ROTF Deluxe Arcee and ROTF Deluxe Bumblebee, both for $7.99. The TJ Maxx next door had pretty much the same selection.

Then I went to the Ross in downtown Portland. There I found an insane deal on HFTD Leader Class Optimus Prime and Starscream, both for $20 each. Unfortunately I didn't pick either of them up because I didn't have the money to spend.

The point is, if you're looking for figures that you missed out on from previous lines, hit up the discount chains like Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Unbelievable deals are to be had.

Thanks for sharing your sightings! I'm merging your topic with the Oregon topic to help other people in your area find the toys. Happy hunting!

Found some weird figures that I've never heard of

Postby iaconportland » Fri Jun 17, 2011 11:37 am

...Went to Big Lots in Beaverton, OR, the other day and they had a box of scout class figures whose alt modes were animals and they came with cyber planet keys. They were in 2010 Transformers packaging but I've never heard of them. I can't recall the names of the figures but one of them was a rhino...Anyone have any more info on this? Also, they had some figures that were designated "Mino-Con" class instead of "Scout" or "Legend" class...

I believe the first ones you mentioned are the re-packaged Cybertron Scout-class figs. Not sure about the others.

Yep, the Rhino one is Cybertron Backstop. Perhaps they'd been released in new packaging - it happened to Cybertron Mudflap when the first movie line came out, though they recoloured him while keeping the same name.
Are you sure the others said 'mino-con' and no 'mini-con'? There were some minicon teams released as part of the Cybertron line too.

So this is what my searches over the past week have yielded:

Ross - picked up a couple voyager class (solar grapple/deep dive), and battle hooks Optimus - however these were the last of any kind of transformers at any of the locations I visited (Eastport Plaza, 82nd near Sunnyside, Lloyd Center, SW Downtown location, and SE 122nd near Burnside).

Fred Meyer - Johnson Creek and 82nd @ Foster have all the normal DOTM stuff ($2-3 more than WM or Target tho). The location on 122nd near Burnside did have 1 leader class Ironhide and 2 Leader class Sentinal Primes, however.

Wal Mart - all locations have the usual assortment of DOTM, however the SE 82nd near Johnson Creek location had a few Generations left (I picked up Dirge and Red Alert), including some odds'n' ends on clearance including an ejector decepticon that transforms into a toaster (hadn't seen this before).

Toys'R'us - The Sunnyside location had nothing interesting other than the usual DOTM stuff, couple Sentinal Prime Leader class's. However, the location at Lloyd center mall had a couple Ironhide Leader class (I bought one), some of the BB/Starscream Cybertronian 4-pack minibots, a bunch of DOTM figures, and a whole slew of Generations including Dirge, Blurr, Red Alert, Skullgrin, Megatron, Cybertronian Soundwave, and Thunderwing.

I haven't checked TJ Maxx or the few Marshalls in the area...maybe they have some more? I really like Ross the best with their pricing ($9.99 for voyager class, $6-7 for Deluxe class), but hard to know when they have stuff in stock.

Hope this helps! :D

Generations Thundercracker, WheelJack, Scourge, Cliffjumper, and Thunderwing (one each) at Target on NE 118th/Glisan. Also a DOTM Laserbeek (haven't seen this one anywhere before?).

TJ Maxx on SE 82nd had one battlehooks Optimus Prime for $24.99

Ultimate Optimus Prime at pretty much every Fred Meyer/Target/TRU/Kmart in town - no HA Leadfoots at any Target I've been to...
