Is it me, or does CA seem to get all these TF's first? :-?
$25?!? Damn... Well, I guess it's not much more than $22-3... but considering it's the same line, I'm in a little bit of a sticker shock.

What's that Donatello item on that receipt? :grin: THAT seems like the bargain!

EDIT: Nevermind. That doesn't say "Donatello" at all. My brain is being dyslexic again... :BOOM:

TRU is a good place for these Generation Voyagers. I swear I only saw Grimlock in a TRU and in a Kmart (of all places). Not sure why Target doesn't do a better job of stocking the new stuff, but I'm always glad to see TRU show ANY competitive edge (for the last few years they're in business, anyway :roll: ).

The reason (I believe) that California gets the new figures first is that the toys are manufactured in Asia, and they come to the US through the port at Los Angeles. It'll take about at least a week or so for it to trickle through to the rest of the US.

Nah, the Midwest gets them first more often than California. But that's not to say California doesn't get their turn of getting firsts. ;)

$25?!? Damn...


Honestly, I'm so used to my local retailers jacking up the price, I've begun to accept $16-17 Deluxes and $25 for Voyagers.

Like I said, where I'm at, everything is a little over the top. Beast Hunters Voyagers are about the same too.

Pfft, those two are switched where I'm at: my Toys "R" Us completely sucks when it comes to Transformers, always the figures nobody wants, whereas Target (except for that one time when they released the Universe/Revenge of the Fallen Superion and Bruticus exclusives that I really wanted :( ) are quite good at stocking.

No offense but people like you are the reason why the prices are so ridiculous & stores like TRU jack them up more, now if more people told them to go frak them selves i guarantee you the prices would go down. But that'll never happen cause most collectors only care about them selves or dont realize they have a collecting problem. All your doing by paying high prices now is screwing over future generations and yourself down the road. Now deluxes are $16 next year they'll be $20 then $25 up until they get so expensive no one buys them and the franchise is done. If the young fans cant afford them then the franchise is doomed, you really think a kid is going to buy a $16 transformer when he/she can get 2 or 3 other toys for the same price? And why anyone would pay excessive prices for inferior products is beyond me. Still cant wrap my head around starbucks. their coffee sucks but they're always packed.


But anyway the distribution for these lines are horrible, ive only seen blitzwing & springer once & it was only one case. Seen one lone grimlock & soundblaster but there are still plenty of soundwaves. Same with beast hunter, seen shockwave twice and dreadwing once but plenty of predaking & prime. Stores are barren once again & have been for at least 2 months. I dont think its my location cause they use to stock the shelves. Wasnt til DOTM that they started to go barren. I also dont understand why the old TFP voyagers are $30 and the BH voyagers are $22-$25, they are the exact same line just different packaging. This franchise is so screwed up right now its not even funny.

I'm a bit confused by the description "TF GENERATIONCYBERTRON 2PK". Does Sandstorm come with a buddy?

You're not the only one. I was trying to figure out what was on clearance and how many I needed.
