Eyewitness Reports- According to Lapse of Reason, you may want to check out the Target exclusives the next time you are there. They may be marked with clearance prices. Lapse has already spotted them at 30% off the regular prices in his area.

"Both Springer/Ratbat & Dirge/Roadbuster comic packs and both Animated exclusive packs have entered the first round of Target clearance pricing (30% off). Target sales are nationwide so chances are your local Target store has marked them down already. These are not available online on Target's web site."

Take a look at your local Target if you are interested in finding these exclusives at a reduced price, and help your fellow collectors out by reporting to them in the appropriate thread in the Sightings Forum!

Encore Metroplex KO - Update

Transformers News: Encore Metroplex KO - Update

I spoke with TFSource.com spokesman, Curt, regarding the fake Encore Metroplex's that were sold. He assured me that only a small portion of their stock was affected. Curt had this to say:

Only a fraction of the orders purchased in December from us are the KO, so if yours shipped before December it is 100% authentic. We purchased from 4 different suppliers to get enough inventory for the holiday sale, and less than 10% of the stock shipped was the holiday sale. If your order shipped before December then, you have nothing to worry about.

In talking with other online retailers, it seems that the KO Metroplex came from one particular factory in China. As many of you will recall, a KO Metroplex was released this summer but in a different package. The illegal manufacturer most likely swapped the boxes this fall to disguise them as Encore figures in order to compete with the legitimate toys.



Update:

D Unit has reported that TFSource will be shipping authentic Encore Metroplex replacements to customers that received a KO. TFSource wrote:

At our cost, we also have purchased twice the amount of legitimate figures as KO’s shipped out, to fill any claims, from a legitimate supplier. So by all means please send your purchase back no questions asked, and we will send a replacement as well as refund shipping for the inconvenience. Normally we are good at identifying this product but the information regarding the counterfeit wasn’t readily available and we also received so many orders during the holiday, we really weren’t looking for it, so it is our oversight. Apologies for the unfortunate situation.

TFSource also mentioned that they will be taking action against the supplier of the counterfeit Metroplex’s.

We have filed a claim against the seller, as well as contacted Takara/Tomy with his name and address, as well as website, to report him for selling counterfeit products, as well as misrepresenting goods to customers as we have email communication stating that this was legitimate Takara/Tomy product.

As response to yesterdays shocking warning concerning Encore Metroplex our Sponsor BigBadToyStore.com has contacted us to assure their Customers that their Transformers Encore Metroplexes are all real.

Read what they have to say:


Hey guys,

This is James over at BBTS (posting on behalf of Joel)

We have checked all of our stock and everything we have is legit and we are 100% certain we have no knockoffs because we buy from dealers we trust that get product directly from Takara. We were approached by the cheap 3rd party company that makes the knockoffs and we declined to buy them.

If you guys could spread this info around the boards we'd appreciate it since we don't post/read on all the Transformer boards.

Thanks and Happy Holidays from everyone at BBTS!

This just in the long term Canada based Transformers and other toys dealer Ages Three And Up will close down for good after December 31.!

Just read what they have to say:

[quote="Grifter Prime"">TF Dealer closes for good! Goodbye Spencer.


As of December 31st Ages Three And Up will no longer be in operation. I would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years and am most appreciative of all the friends I have made over this time.

After December 31st we will no longer take any more orders and all preorders with Ages Three And Up will be cancelled and refunds issued for all items we did not receive. All products that are on hold for orders will be finalized and shipped out. I apologize for the delays we have had and have done my best at getting items in but to no avail.

We will also be closing our Metrotown location and from December 26th to December 31st everything on the site and in the store will be on sale at both locations.

Again, thanks to everyone over the years.

Spencer.
