Pssst... wanna hear a secret?

Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.

I don't. That sucks. Everyone should have a Windcharger that wants one. Hopefully scalpers like me will help drive prices down on the secondary market.

PS: Looks at my sales thread :lol:

I'm very glad I did! :) I actually like the United versions better and Strafe has no place with me anyway. It's awesome that folks are gonna be able to get them easily though and at a discount too. Even better.

Just picked up legends Megatron and Optimus. I grabbed deluxe Perceptor as well. Will be going back for more. Many thanks to whoever found this, I've wanted those legends since I first saw the pictures here. Finding these RTS/Generations figures has been hell until this.

Postby Kondorsigma » Wed Jun 08, 2011 8:06 pm

can anyone confirm whether lugnut, strafe, solar storm, windcharger and chopsaw are Ross store exclusives? I've scoured many TJ Maxx's and Marshall's recently and have not seen any of these figures. This is all i've found:
-Marshalls: RTS bumblebee, optimus, wreck-gar and perceptor. Legends trailcutter, goldbug, megatron, starscream, prowl and optimus. Leader optimus and starscream. Many other RTS scouts.
-TJ Maxx: no RTS. More return of the fallen figures.

I can't imagine that based on the large RTS line up at Marshalls that they'll also get solar storm and windcharger. Here is hoping that TJ Maxx may come through as I don't have any Ross stores in my area.

I'm in Mass/NH area.

Man, I shoulda stopped at Ross on my way to the Coldwell Banker customer reception I went to tonight. I already hit two Marshalls and one TJMaxx in my area but I always forget Ross exists because I never go to that corner of the shopping center it's in. Will have to hit the other Marshalls I know of as well. Been wanting to get my hands on Grappel and Windcharger.

Dammit !!! I paid $48 for a Windcharger at the club store at Botcon and got stuck with a bunch of scouts. But f**k it, it wasnt worth the risk of not getting him. So Hasbro wasnt to blame after all. They had the stock hidden somewhere all along. It was all Walmart, Target, and TRU's fault for choosing to pass on RTS to jump on the DOTM bandwagon.

But Im still very happy for everyone who will now get a chance to own these figures. This is bad news for scalpers. You just got your face used for toilet paper !!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Doesn't Marshalls and TJ Maxx generally get the same Transformers stock as Ross? Here's hoping they show up there soon.


I've heard a lot of people say that, but I didn't find that to be true earlier this year. ROSS was getting a bunch of "cancelled" G.I.Joe stuff and I didn't see any of it at our Marshall's and TJ Maxx.

I hope it's different this time! =P~


The same thing happened to me, We were supposed to find the Desert Snake and Target Alpha Wave 3 ROC vehicles at TJ Maxx/Marshalls and I never saw them. Hope to see the voyagers as I have everything else.
