Views: 28,465 member Mr.Bond007 has just informed us that the TARGET store he works at has cut price points on Transformers deluxe figures to $7.79 USD. This price cut includes Transformers Animated, Universe 2.0 and Movie figures.

This could be in response to an overwhelming control of deluxe sales by Walmart, who's maintained a price point of $ 7.77 USD on the same class of figures for well over a month.

Still and all, this is great news for holiday shoppers on a budget. Don't forget, while you're out racking in all the latest figures, to think of those less fortunate and support Toys For Tots.

Yizhi521 of has posted yet another, and this time slightly clearer, photo of what appears to be the "Revenge of the Fallen" Soundwave figure. In this new image, you can clearly see three orbs on his chest as well as the "grill" form and "lights" on his stomach that ressemble those seen on the supposed Soundwave concept design leaked earlier. Though writer Roberto Orci specifically stated that Soundwave is not a pickup truck, there does seem to be some connection between this figure's design and the leaked Soundwave "truck" design.

See the image here or mirrored below, along with the supposed concept art for Soundwave's truck mode.
