We've been getting reports on a variety of clearance pricing for these figures for quite some time, and have even seen quite the swing in pricing at our local Targets. But at whatever the current price, it does seem Target is aiming to make you a deal on Beast Fire Predaking and Construct-Bot Optimus Prime vs Megatron. So far, Target.com doesn't seem to be reflecting the clearance pricing. Clearance priced figures can be found in Target's toy clearance aisles in most locations, and in some stores are going for some pretty amazing deals. At one of the Targets local to the Denver-metro area, Beast Fire Predaking was purchased for $12.48. Other users have spotted him anywhere from $12.48 to $17.48, on up to $34.49. The Construct-Bot sets are on clearance anywhere from $6.50 to $9.99, depending on location. If you've been considering any of these items, it sure seems now is the time to get them.

I has no plans to pick up Beast Fire Predaking, but for under $20...

Guess I better troll my local Targets tomorrow. :twisted:

Found Ultimate Predaking at Target 2 weeks ago for $24.98. I did plan on getting him earlier, but I'm glad I waited for him on clearance.

Haha, I was in the same boat. The transformation was so simple, I wasn't terribly interested for $50... But at $12.48 it's a different story.

My Target cleared out their Predakings already. Dunno if it ever got to the $12 price, last I saw it was $17.

I wonder if/when the other Pred Rising stuff will get clearanced. The Legion 2-pack and Predaking already did, so I'd imagine the others will eventually.
Granted even with those prices I'm still not terribly interested in any of them.

We got so many emails and messages about this one, it would have been next to impossible to pick someone to give news credit to.

It's alright. I was just hoping this would be my chance to raise my news credits past 11. For some reason based on nothing even resembling rational thought, I find 11, or a series of 11s (ex:11:11am) to be unnerving.

$6.50 for that Construct Bots set, you say? I just bought another one today for $6.24 (yeah, whoop-dee-slag, but if you wanna' army-build or stock up on future birthday/Christmas presents for younger extended family, it adds up), and that's at 3 different Targets too. But canvassing the SE Michigan stores between Napier and Beech-Daly, I've seen ones for just 50 cents or $2.50 more. No rhyme or reason to it.

Well, except for one consistency: The stores that have that set for $8.74 are the ones that have Predaking for $17.48, and therefore aren't sold out yet. They'll often be on a clearance shelf 2 or 3 aisles away from the other TFs. The Legion vs. sets are long gone, and I keep scanning all their exclusives in between the 2 extremes, but nothing else is budging yet. My hunch is that they'd have to clearance all Preds Rising figures sharing the same price point at the same time.

I posted more details in the MI sightings thread, more to come.

Just added 2 more sightings to the Michigan thread when something dawned on me about that C-Bot set not only being on clearance, but marked down the same percent as Predaking regardless of what the percent is: could it be that Target has them both listed as "Ultimate" class, so they can't clearance one without the other, even though Predaking's original price was nearly double the 2-pack's?

You wouldn't think simple wording would trump actual price points, especially when one is their exclusive and one not, but Target's always had more pricing irregularities than any other big retailer I can think of.

Snagged the Optimus vs. Megatron Constructbots set for about $6.50. I'm definitely happy at that.

I was at my local Target a few days ago and they had Beast Fire Predaking for $34.98. I went back today and got him for $10.48! What a steal!
