Did Toys R Us suddenly find cases of those ROTF figures in a warehouse or something? If I find myself in the store then I'll take a look at what they have but if current stock is anything to go by then its buy 1 Scalpel get 2 Scalpels free.

More like getting rid of all those Tuner Mudflaps in their warehouses. I actually spotted one a week ago!

Scalpel's a Scout, so he doesn't count. ;)

Why don't they donate them to Toy for Tots? It would at least be a nice gesture and they should be able to write it off.

They'd rather make money. Lol. But, that said, they did just donate $50,000 worth of gift cards to Toys for Tots (or so they announced on their facebook)

I might pick up that Ultimate Optimus <.< Dunno yet xP

RotF and PCCs? These are some weak deals.

$10 DotM... Autobot? Uh, $10 Voyagers is kinda interesting. Granted there were all those Target coupons recently and I don't think many new Voyagers came out since then.

You can pick up Ultimate Prime from Gabriel Bro's for $49.99 right now. Why wait till Black Friday in a TRU mob? Not a real deal considering it can be had now without getting beat for something in a mad rush.

That's if you have a Gabriel Brother's near you. I hadn't even heard of it until you posted that. Lol and there isn't a store withing a 200 mile radius of me.

Though I think Walmart has been having it at around $60 and paying $10 more is certainly better than the rush.

On my end, I figured I'd be up so why not head to Toys R Us for 9:30 or 10 pm, if I even want to after eating sleep-inducing turky. If there a line to get in then (after it's been open for a bit), well hey, I'll leave. Lol. My car needs to get driven more often anyway otherwise things like the breaks go bad faster xP None of these toy deals are really all that "OMG, must go now!" worthy.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. I spoke to a Hasbro rep recently and they mentioned that the last wave of PCC will be released again so seeing the hard to find figures on Black Friday would not surprise me.

O for... :BANG_HEAD: I knew I should have stayed longer!

If that's true someone had better grab me one of these:

1) Grimstone with Dinobots
2) Over-Run with Stunticons
3) Undertow with Waterlog

Heavytred with Groundspike
Skyhammer with Airlift
Salvage with Bomb-Burst

Mudslinger with Destructicons
Double Clutch with Rallybots (2nd version with the fixes)

I already have everything else.

Just like they were going to find a place for the RTS guys that we didnt get. plus i doubt that every store is going to be getting them if they are to be re-released since PCC sold like crap & HA is currently clogging shelves worse than the first wave of PCCs did.

I don't know how long that deal is running, but last year or so when they were selling the PCC 5 packs, my local Targets had PLENTY of those to go around later in the day Friday.

Double Clutch and one of his drones were subject to no less than 5 retools between the two. On Double Clutch the numerous tabs and holes were adjusted for a better fit (but don't entirely solve the problems), while the red Drag Racer drone had a tab lengthened to fix the autotransform feature.

And just to add more fuel to the fire, 5 below has Scouts on sale for $5 bucks, and guess who is the figure shown, but none other than everyones favorite hard to find scout, Reveal the Shield Windcharger! Here is the ad scan, he is on page 2!

http://www.blackfriday.info/sales/five- ... ay-ad.html

I stopped into my local 5 below, and they didn't have any of the Black Friday ad stuff out yet, so it may be a decent place to stop in and check on that morning. I am really hoping to find the Demolition Rumble wave there.

For those wondering, TRU officially said all their Black Friday deals will be available online. Here's the article :

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/toys-r-us-unveils-doorbusters-160800536.html

If TRU does what they usually do, spending $75 or more will get you free shipping. I'd check though if you're interested in buying from them as I'm not sure what their shipping policies will be on the 24 / 25th.

Good news for those of you who are still on the hunt for that ever so elusive Reveal the Shield Scout Class Windcharger and live the vicinity of a Five Below. Seibertron member --B-- has let us know that their Black Friday ad features Scout class figures for $5.00 and apparently Windcharger is among them.

If anyone from the Rockford area is gonna attempt hitting up the Five Below by the TRU -First Aid I'm looking at you lol- Could you pick up an extra Windcharger if they have it, IF you're gonna go? :grin:

Posted by Bumblevivisector on November 17th, 2011 @ 4:48pm CST
I'm going to guess that showing Windcharger in the ad simply means that he'll be on sale IF they happen to have any in stock. All such offers are while supplies last, therefore no store is at fault if supply runs out before the sale even starts, or if they just never happened to get that particular case in.

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but just because they have Windcharger in the advert, doesn't mean they'll have him in stock.

I have check my local five below a few times, and they do not have any of the black friday sales items on the floor. And if they do, they have a pallets worth. I doubt we will see much there, but I really hope to snag some Windchargers and Rumbles to send out to my Seibertronian brothers and sisters.

Especially the sisters, wink wink.

Come on guys, I can dream can't I??? I have a Windcharger that I didn't pay an arm and a leg for, but I know a lot of guys who don't so I will be on the look out. And I wouldn't mind a extra one for on my desk, he is a an awesome mold.

As you already know one of the upcoming Black Friday specials will be $10.00 Power Core Combiner five-pack plus a two-pack combo for $10.00 at Wal-Mart, now we are happy to report these combos will feature some of those hard to come by later wave figures. Apparently some Wal-Marts have jumped the gun and already started stocking the sets. TFW2005's Magnus1701 found and purchased the combos seen below, which include Salvage, Undertow, and Skyhammer. The Allspark's ShinRa also reports finding a combo with Heavytread. Great news for those who never were able to track down the later wave Commander two-packs.

Apparently Ultimate Optimus desire is HUGE. He was mentioned on Yahoo/CNN Money.

http://financiallyfit.yahoo.com/finance ... =ad0035&nc

Clamoring for Ultimate Optimus Prime? At Toys R Us the same deals and discounts, including 40% off the popular transformer figure, will also be available on Toysrus.com starting at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. The toy giant is also offering free shipping on everything except furniture, video game consoles and gift cards.


Wow.

Posted by amtm on November 19th, 2011 @ 5:23am CST
I don't think I've ever actually bought anything on Black Friday. One year I checked it out super early...and it was ridiculous, so I left. Last year I went the night before...and the line at Toys R Us, where the police were directing to keep the flow of people down to two at once, went all the way around the block, so I left. Saving a few dollars on anything is just not worth the hours-long waiting time to get into stores and check out. Unless there's something I'd save literally hundreds or thousands of dollars on by buying that day, it's just a huge waste of time.

That said, I will be hitting Five Below and Wal-mart tomorrow to see if they have stocked these things. If not, I'll just check the day after. Five Below is not exactly shopper central for Black Friday, and the PCCs aren't that important to me. The new molds are kinda neat, but the whole PCC concept is pretty lame. Who wants non-transforming "drones"? And giant blue squares on every limb?

Stopped into 5 below, and they had all of the scouts, sans Windcharger, someone had already swooped in and scored them all. I was just there on Tuesday night, so they were not there for long. There was about 5 Chopsaws, which were 2 to a case just like Windcharger, so they only had 6 from the beginning.

Damn. The Exton scapler strikes again. At least he/she didn't steal these, or buy and return with something else in it's place. I only wanted to snag one or two.

For all those interested in the Walmart deal:

In my store, there won't be a line for the Transformers (or so they think) mainly because they don't see it as a hot item, so I believe they will just put out they toys in the toy section instead of lined off in their own stack, and apparently my Walmart has about 100 of these packs.... Also an employee told me about a Black Friday floor map. Hope this info helps, I'll try to find out more. :ic$: :-B

Some BBTS stuff has been listed:

Pretty lame so far though, I'm assuming there will be more widespread discounts as the weekend approaches.

Sneaky buggers raised the price on the ONE item I wanted though, 2010 Primus, now $129.99 instead of $109.99. I only hope this is in anticipation of further price reduction, otherwise I may need to take my purchase elsewhere...

I think BBTS will soon be giving away those Piranacon sets.

So on the way home from my parents' house last night I stopped by Wal-Mart and such to see what was going on. The parking lot was crowded, lines were forming nearby at Target, Best Buy's line was so long that people were playing football in the parking lot to pass the time. I toured Wal-Mart to see if they had PCC Undertow, and indeed they did. I left without bothering because the lines were so long.

This morning I happened to wake up early, as I went to sleep early last night. I figured what the hay, I might as well swing by Five Below in Laurel, MD to see if they have Windcharger.

Indeed they did--about 6 or 7 of them. They weren't in the normal toy aisle, though, but rather by the counter--had I not asked an employee where to find Transformers I wouldn't have seen them. I also bought Chopsaw for kicks.

Wal-Mart in Laurel was also not very crowded, and most of the registers, unlike usual, were staffed. I found PCC Grimstone packaged with Undertow and bought that. The combinations vary so you could find any 5-pack with any 2-pack, and you'll need to sort through them to find what you want.

I then hit Target in Columbia and found Voyager Cannon Force Ironhide, Megatron, and Sentinel Prime for $10 each, so I bought those. Don't think I'll be keeping Sentinel but I figured I could trade for something later.

I also hit Wal-Mart in Columbia, and found nothing of interest there, except a leftover ROTF Long Haul, which I bought. It was clearance-priced on the tag, but not in the system, so I had to wait a few minutes for the clerk to get approval from a manager to give me the clearance price.

I stopped at Toys R Us and saw they had DOTM Ultimate Optimus for $47.99--best price I've seen anywhere so far--but I passed on that since I really don't dig it.

And somewhere in there I hit Ross and bought RTS Wreck-Gar and Tracks and HFTD Leader Starscream.

All in all, not a bad haul.

And I was pleasantly surprised to find traffic was light and parking was easy. You'd never know there were lines the night before. So that says to me that as retailers have responded to the Black Friday rush by opening earlier and earlier and now Thanksgiving night, the best time to go is really early Friday morning, so you don't have to deal with the madhouse. Yes, you might miss some deals, but I've noticed that most of the really marked down stuff is crap no one wanted before anyway. So it's just a way for the retailers to make people think they're getting a good deal and get rid of all the stuff they couldn't sell before.
