I've never even heard of this store before. Lol. And to think there are two within 25 miles of me, one being in an area I frequent rather regularly.

So that's where all the Vehicons have been hiding.

A compelling-enough character can make even the worst toy look appealing.

Of course, don't expect there to be any Vehicons left, what with some folks buying them up six at a time. :P

No doubt Airachnid is a block of processed horse meat. I'm one of those guys that (if it has an official toyline) needs to have all of the cartoon characters as toys, crappy or not. :P

i dont care how many the store has you dont buy 6 of the same figure at the same time, thats just frakin wrong man. But with that aside ive never heard of this store, and the nearest one is 45min away (thats if traffic is good) so theres no point. Ill just wait for the inevitable walmart sale.

It's called army building. Plenty of collectors do it when there's a generic guy with a toy.

And scalpers

Never in my life, have I seen ANY transformers action figures at an Aldi. And yet, they have them on sale at $9.99? Wow. Maybe I can find 4 vehicons and be done. Or maybe one and just call him Steve :grin:

If anyone snaps up Airachnid or Vehicon and wishes to sell at just about cost and add shipping then I will gladly pay for a few. :)

What's wrong with buying a couple for myself and four more for two friends? I didn't even clean them out. Besides I've searched long and hard for Vehicons since they were first released in wave 3 and before today found a grand total of one.

The best part of Aldi's selection is that there are NO Bumblebees. I found them this past Sunday right after they put them out. If I remember correctly, their selection includes Ratchet, Wheeljack, Deadend, Vehicon, Hotshot, Airachnid, Knockout. I admit that I picked up an extra Airachnid for its helicopter blades to cobble together a spider mode. It sort of redeems the toy, but not by much.
