Too bad I didn't wait. Lol. Sounds like I could have saved some money (if my TJ had them, of course). Ah well. At this point I'm done with the Prime line. Kicking it back and waiting for pre-orders to come in early to mid next year. Don't think I'll be able to get more in 2013 than that... we'll see how the year goes.

Glad I passed on Rumble up until now. I mean, I've been WANTING him, but more than $10 is WAY too much for as small as he is.

Way to beat me to this thread Megatron Wolf. :APPLAUSE: The only twist is I found the same at a local Marshalls so I chose to pass on my thread and spin off yours. I was so blown away when I saw 1 of the following...Ultra Magnus, Thundertron, Vehicon, Kup, and Optimus Maximus. :shock:

Can someone explain how this happens?

To my real surprise I only saw 1 BB and who has seen just one BB lately? :P Fortunately I didn't need or want those Prime figs but X-mas will come early for the lucky person to pick up a $12.99 Voyager and $6.99 deluxe figs recently released.

It's a safe bet to hit them all fans including Ross too! :VEHI:

:BANG_HEAD:

That's it, no more buying Prime for me here until I move over in June. We miraculously have the entire Prime Deluxe range here in the Netherlands, including Kup and Rumble, but still at full price (€20 or $26)!

Me thinks I'll ask my father-in-law to check for me there, while I focus on Arms Micron here...
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

The fact that Ultra Magnus and Thundertron stock is already showing up a discount retail is making me a little worried for Skyquake. I can see the ROTF HA Mudflap scenario all over again. On the other hand maybe he will be easy to find at discount and I'll get him cheap!

Well, it looks like the discount retailers are at it again. This time it's Prime Deluxes! The latest waves, no less!

Seibertron member Megatron Wolf spotted them and had this to say:

At TJMaxx @ $6.99 each:

At Target @ $19.00 each And TJMaxx @ $13.00 each:

What does this mean for the assortment with Skyquake, the last PRID figure? Only time will tell.

Well, glad all I got at Meijers was the Arcee I still needed; their PRID deluxe sale price is $12.99. This may even make me pass up Toys'R'Us's Buy one get on 40% off on all TF stuff (of course, I did just use their deal on the Data-Disc 2-packs today)

Never thought Aldis would get beat so soon, so I'm likewise glad I mostly got Vehicons there. Of course, that's a different wave that I do still need some of.

Damn, so many complaints about the Prime line, and yet we suddenly have a plethora of riches to choose from.

Now we just need some PCCs to show up there again. Was it just 3 years ago that the quest for Human Alliance Mudflap led so many of us to discover T.J. Marshaxx for the first time?

How reasonable. The "Deluxe" Scouts are now priced like scouts, and the "Voyager" Deluxes are priced as Deluxes.

$6.99 for a Deluxe? And $13 for a Voyager?

This seems too good to be true... :shock:

Another heads up if your looking for the FoC Combaticons check out kmart, there were 3 swindles at the one i stopped at today along with a few primes. They were priced at $12.99 & Swindle is actually deluxe size. Made prime really look like a scout class figure.

Just ran to my local NYC TJ Maxx - nothing... yet. The east coast is normally a week or two behind, so I'll need to keep a look out for these.

I was thrilled to score 3 PRID Vehicons at Aldi, but will revel in the opportunity for more. Plus, fairly happy that I passed on a $16 Rumble at K-Mart, now that he may show up for $7. Woo!

Of course people would be comparing the "Scout-sized" Deluxe to the old Scout prices, and "Deluxe" Voyagers to the old Deluxe price. Not that I'm not disagreeing or anything. ;)

Too bad I already got what I wanted from the Prime line.

Off topic, but I wish Thundertron had that dark blue as opposed to the brighter (and seemingly same as UM's) shade of blue.

I hope so. It would make finding those figures beyond Optimus/Jazz/Shockwave so much easier.

Yes! That settles it. That's the second word I've heard about Ross's Voyager prices. Thanks for the confirmation. ;)^

Did they have any Deluxes there too? If yes, for how much?
