I may return them if I can find them at Target or Walmart. I don't know when Kmart became such a rip off. It's gotta be tough to even upstage TRU's markups.


I'm...confused.

Why on Earth would you feel bad about it?

Here's some food for thought:

1.) We now know that Rumble and Kup are the last Deluxe figures to come out of the Prime line. (PRID is finished, soon it will be Beast Hunters. This was said at NYCC.)

2.) After spending time, gas, and patience, you'd end up spending more than you did. ($15.47 to $18.99 is not a tremendous difference, it really isn't.)

3.) K-Mart, whether we believe it or not, is some form of competition for Wal-Mart. I'd much rather have my money go to K-Mart and give their employees yet one more paycheck and keep them from being jobless, than to give it to the juggernaut known as Wal-Mart's wallet.

I'm sorry, but so far, your post isn't making much sense to me. You found them. At retail. That alone is enough of a triumph. Add in the fact that you didn't have to resort to scalper pricing and/or eBay and you really do have something to be happy about.

Repeat after me:

"I got them at a reasonable price. My money didn't go to Wal-Mart. I didn't feed the scalpers. I found them at retail, which most people aren't fortunate enough to do. I'm one of the lucky ones, go me!"

Make that your mantra, repeat it.

I picked up Airachnid yesterday. Surprisingly I actually like the figure. That might be because my expectations were so low.

So now I have Legion, PRiD and FE Arcee. These are my only Prime figures and other than Flamewar I'm not in a hurry to remedy that. These are my first motorcycle transformers and I dare to claim that they are probably the best motorcycle transformers, too. The bike mode is a tiny bit bulky and the PRiD version has a somewhat large backpack but I'm quite pleased anyway. Too bad about the light blue because dark blue looks better but oh well. My FE version has a slightly unstable left shoulder point, I'll have to do something about that.

Here's to hoping they release a commander or scout figure as well. That'd be sweet.

Right, 5th time lucky as Ive managed to close the bloody browser in succession whilst trying to rescale pictures for this post!! :-x

After hearing that the latest wave where spotted in various Tesco Superstores, I went on a mission to my local Sainsburys to see what they had.

I was chuffed to gain a mad special offer discount on all of these despite not seeing any flashes on the shelves? Saved £4.33 off each £12.99 figure!!!

Really pleased to find a few off my wants list...

Transformers Prime Deluxe

Sergeant Kup
Airachnid
Decepticon Rumble

and Dead End

All look pretty sweet in their packages too! ;)

Well I got so sick of searching store to store looking for Voyager Dreadwing that today I finally broke down and bought one off of ebay for $30.40 shipped. For me it was a great deal because I use $10 of gas to go to town each way, so I saved ten bucks.

Got a few great birthday gifts! AMW 1-3, to make the Dark Matter Calibur, Hyperspeed Wheeljack, and Terrorcon Bumblebee. That sword is simply amazing, and Terrorbee is pretty nice as well. This is actually my first iteration of the mold, and I can see why people like it so much, though I don't plan to pick up any other decks of it, lol. Also, dat lightpiping.

My TFP Rumble came today from Amazon! He is so much better than I had initially thought. All of the reviews finally sold me and I was able to get him for only $16.99 with free shipping and no tax.

I picked up Airrachnid at Aldi's today. They also had several Vehicons, but I couldn't buy one as Aldi's doesn't take credit cards! :BANG_HEAD: So if you go there, have a debit card or cash handy!
