Saw that price tag before, I think it was actually for masterpiece rodimus, as u mentioned. The item number should not be 787681.

Yes it's that's normally true, however when I was there a couple of weeks ago the MP TC's price was $69.99 and there was some sort of discount at checkout. I got my TCs for about $64 each including taxes which I was very happy about.

Don't if he's been out for a while or not, I tend to ignore the Cyberverse thanks to their $10 price, but I found this dude hanging around in Walmart when I was visiting peeps in the southern part of the Hudson Valley, NY

Image

He's the first I've seen, though as I mentioned before, I tend to ignore the class scale.

Yep saw that today when i went to see if they have any of the new Prime voyagers. it is officially shelfwarming... My fear now is that they won't order the Masterpiece prime until these sell out... =/ this happened with their prime deluxe wave.. still haven't seen on vehicon, think they skipped that wave altogether.

Both of you are right. I bought my TC there at $69.99. But I just went there today and guess what? The price is changed now to $86.99! That's insane, no wonder they have like 30 of them on the floor!

TRU Time SQ had GDO scouts. well I brought the only thing I saw which was a scout sandstorm. it was 11.49 but priced matched it to 9.99 at the counter. I feel we should all price match at this TRU cause they overcharge for most of their stuff.
still not Vehicons... don't think they'll ever sell out of their prime deluxes to order more waves. no MP Optimus yet.

I've got 2 Prime Vehicons MIB, not the FE mold, but the newer mold, for trade. I'd like to trade for combaticons, Foc Vortex, Onslaught, or Blast Off.

I also have....

DOTM Skyhammer loose complete

MP Starscream G1 colors one very slightly chipped wingtip (the small blue wing fin)

G1 Grimlock all weapons, arm joints slightly loose but otherwise very good condition

HFTD Leader class Battle hooks Optimus Prime

War Within Megatron missing stand, but in perfect condition

G1 Megatron all accessories, one piece of the butt stock if broken off, stickers are worn and joints are decent.

DOTM Deluxe Bumblebee


Generations Thunderwing all accessories great condition.

Cyberverse DOTM Optimus Prime

Fox kids repaint deluxe Dinobot loose complete great condition

Hey everyone, Hope you are all alright now that Sandy has passed. I just got my power back today thankfully.

As far as sightings go, I spotted Vehicon at both Levittown Target and Broadway Mall Target. Broadway mall also had Thundertron and Ultra Magnus. I'm passing on both of those, but I did pick up a Vehicon. He comes with an episode of the show (Loose Cannons) which I guess is their way of excusing the slight price increase (was like 16 and change).

I'm holding out for the Generations Bructicus bots and Airachnid and I'll probably pick up Dreadwing and Bulkhead from RID and Optimus from first edition if I see him. Gotta start cutting back on Transformers sadly.
