In the UK, we have a store called Home Bargains where they are selling these for £6.99 each. Anyone think it's worth buying some Vehicons?

Ah, the same case assortment that made it into Aldis just before Christmas! I got 4 Vehicons, but missed Dead End, and could use another Airachnid or 2 for futile attempts at kitbashing, so I gots to start canvassing Big Lots in addition to T.J.Marshaxx!

Man, Big Lots used to sell all these awesome, innovative KOs, including the Braves Max team in more appealing colors, and all those Space Warrior Beast Wars guys, including perhaps the first 3rd Party toy: a Beast Machines Primal more show-accurate than any of his 3 official toys (though the presence of spinal-swords technically still made the package a KO). Then those enlarged Legends of Cybertron figures, sometimes turned into gestalt limbs thanks to enlarged Sixbuilder (or Sixwing?) torsos and heads, prompted one of Hasbro's few crackdowns. Since then, a trade agreement (I'm guessing) only allows Big Lots to sell the lowest-quality KOs in exchange for selling Hasbro's tiniest official products: leftover Beast-Planet scouts and Legends, usually making the Robot Heroes the most desirable products on the shelf (Though legends Optimus and Starscream with extra weapons showed up there too). I always thought that was a shame, since the Cybertron Starscream was enlarged to be in scale with the War Within Titaniums, a perfect troop-builder. I shoulda' salvaged them from the dumpster...

But if they're gonna' stock official deluxes at THAT price? Okay, all's forgiven! water under the bridge. Now I've actually got a reason to go back in!

I just checked the Big Lots in Dover, DE. They don't have any Vehicons, but everything else from the OP is there, as well as a single Arcee, a handful of Hotshots, and a whole slew of Kups.

Seibertron, the man himself sighted Deluxes and Cyberverse at his local Five Below store and had this to share:

Discount Chain Five Below has a bunch of the lower priced Transformers currently. Good time to pick up Cyberverse figures if people want them for $3 a piece.

Cyberverse and bot shots $3

Rest are $5




I, too, can personally verify that this Transformers push at Five Below is nationwide. As I've seen two of them carry both DOTM and Cyberverse. Some stores even carry left over RPMs in both single and 2-Packs.

Let other collectors know if you find these in your area in our Toy Sightings Forum or Toy Sightings Product Section.

And for DOTM, you can locate the galleries here.

Home Bargains in the UK also had Voyager Ultra Magnus. None of his wave-mates though, at least not at my local store. £11 or £12 ish.

craggy, I have seen Thundertron in my Home Bargains in Llandudno, plus the AMERICAN version of DOTM Leader Sentinel Prime for £22.99.

Agreed. Detroit-area 5-belows have had those DOTM deluxes and HA basics for at least 3 months now. Also Bot-Shots, not surprising given the price point, often in big buckets just as you walk in.

So far all the Cyberverse I've seen there are the case with Flamewar and orange Knock-Out.

EDIT: Just noticed those Legends Gold-bugglebees in the pic, which I haven't seen in 5-Belows around me yet, so that's newsworthy, AFAIK.

My main reasons for setting foot in that chain will continue to be Thundercats and Generator Rex figures...and maybe the occasional Blythe with show-accurate hair color.

Hello,

Just saw the same assortment at a Five Below in Virginia Beach, Virginia over this weekend and last week in Fairfax (Chantilly) Virginia.

They actually had a ton of them (DOTM deluxes, PRID Cyberverse, and $3 bot shot singles and $5 Bot shot with launcher).

I'd forgot who it was that came with Magnus. I already have Thundertron, pre-ordered him. Wasn't missing out on that guy. Was hoping for some Skyquake action.

Toys R Us has Skyquake in the UK. Go onto the site and you'll find him there, as well as Masterpiece Optimus.

Those TFs have been at Five Below for ages now. The HAs at least (probably the Bot Shots and Crossovers, too) have been there since before Christmas!

The Target and Five Below I go to (both in the same square) have been clogged with the same Prime Legends for the longest time. Target only seems to now be getting the Beast Hunters Legends in.

And those have been there for... a very long time now. Uh, two years maybe? Five Below got all the RtS Legends a few Christmastimes ago; Bumblebee for some reason has never left.
