And those have been there for... a very long time now. Uh, two years maybe? Five Below got all the RtS Legends a few Christmastimes ago; Bumblebee for some reason has never left.

AHA, so that explains why the 5-belows near me don't have them: all 3 opened less than a year ago! Should have guessed, considering almost-Goldbug's been at Marshall's for over 2 years.

So while deluxe prices skyrocket in big box stores, they're simultaneously shoved down to $8 or $5 across the street; risky strategy. The consistency of the case assortment is interesting, especially that it's the one wave from the middle of PRID. Any word on Tuesday Morning? The otherwise 5 Below exclusive wave of Thundercats showed up there at the same time, but I haven't seen any new TF stuff there since the DOTM deluxes last year, possibly the same case 5 Below's getting now (Roadbuster, maybe Topspin, my memory's not photographic here).

All I have from the Prime line is Voyagers Optimus and Megatron, and Deluxes Knock Out, Soundwave, and FE Starscream (MISB, hopefully will be worth something down the road). Kinda stopped after Knock Out because of how small he was for $16.

I do not mind picking up some Autobots if they're that cheap. Wheeljack, Ratchet, and maybe Arcee please! :grin:

The Big Lots part of this interests me, seeing I never found TFP Dlx. Dead End and Airachnid. The Five Below part, not so much. All that stuff in the Five Below pic is stuff that is STILL warming pegs at my local TRU. Stuff they refuse to discount, which is hilarious to me. Two years out after DOTM, and they're still trying to get a full $16 out of a Nitro Bumblebee. :lol:

I just drove around my area in East TN, Johnson City/Kingsport/Bristol. Every store had the same selection:

Arcee
Sergeant Kup
Hot Shot
Airachnid
Dead End
Stealth Bumblebee



They didn't have:
Ratchet
Knock Out
Wheeljack
Vehicon

I wanted to get 2 Vehicons. I don't have any yet. I only have 2 Jet Vehicons. So I'm pretty bummed. :BANG_HEAD: If anybody would be nice enough to hook me up with 2 Vehicons I'd really appreciate it.

Checked one of the Big Lots in the area hoping to get a couple of vehicons. Ended up getting Deadend and Hotshot. They had a whole peg worth of Airachnids though. Going to go to another one and see what they have.
