Didn't get him though, couldn't bring myself to do it. Once you see it in your hands, you can tell it's pointless.

I think it's currently on discount at Argos and TRU.

It's usually around $30, give or take a few bucks depending on the individual retailer. $25 is barely discounted at all.

He looks cool, but I actually like the DOTM Cyberverse playsets better than the Prime ones.
I also bet down the road there will be a repack of him with a legion(or 2) or commander class figure

I hope to see some of the TF Prime Cyberverse (scout class) figures there sometime. I wouldn't mind having a few of them, but I'm not prone to shell out $10 a pop. (I'm still used to paying that much for a DELUXE figure, thank you very much).
I agree that there's not much to this. It's essentially a fancy caddy for cyberverse figures. If they can't look good by themselves, what's the point of buying them in the first place?
I'll keep an eye out for deluxes and voyagers. I wouldn't mind a Starscream Voyager maybe, but for the time being I'm happy with my FE Deluxe.

Similar note, Kohl's by me has Prime Cyberverse and some RTS and DOTM Deluxes. Just wanted to share.

So yeah, not one bit surprised he's at T.J. Marshalls--er, no, I meant Tuesday Maxx.
Now, all those PRID Vehicon cases going to Aldi's? THAT's still weird over a month later. And last I checked, they were still coming in.

Surely, you mean the Commander figures. The Cyberverse line consists of Legion (legends) and Commander (scout) size classes.

For the record, a Fortress Maximus or Metroplex design would've actually sold. Making Optimus into "everything" isn't always feasible Hasbro, get it together....
Oh and this is obviously a PASS!

Hey I'm in Marion. Where was that at? Near Westdale or Blair's Ferry? Thanks

the closest i have seen to a discount has been 23 in clearance at (T).
i wanted this to be cooler but i might break if it hits 15.

Also, on clearance at a Target which didn't have them at all last week (that I noticed).
Since this is the only TFPrime item that has been seen at these kinds of discount stores, I think it's a bit disingenuous to say "TF Prime toys" when it's really just this one.

That's right. They're all subsidiaries of one company called TJX. Not sure why but TJ Maxx in germany is called TK Maxx.
You'll also notice the store layout and design is basically the same for TJ Maxx, Ross, and Marshall's. Not even sure why they maintain threee brands since there's no real difference.

They have 3 levels of discount pricing, at least on their clothing.
One is the "expensive" discount store, one is the "cheap" one, one is in-between. At least that is how my wife explained it to me. I don't recall which is which.
For toys they run about the same prices, but their toy departments exist mainly as a way to quiet whining kids.
As it just so happens, I can ignore this craptacular waste of plastic equally at all three.
