Has it ever happend that Both TJMaxx and Ross get the same TFs? Not that I recall. It was always one or the other.

That is true. Its why I said that other TFs may show up.

At that price definitely worth a buy as he's a fun figure. I sold mine though as hoping for a far more accurate Studio figure. :P
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

I've heard of AOE Hot Shot and Slash being found at both stores, and some Beast Hunters voyagers.

I was thinking of things like Quickslinger, Wildrider, Grotusque, the early release Studio Series deluxes, that sort of thing. The rumored Repugnus or Blastoff, even Counterpunch, that's what I wanted to see (didn't expect it, just had a fleeting hope)

An odd assortment of TR Kup, Krok, Triggerhappy and Slugslinger for $7.99 each.

It's been very sporadic. I saw them all twice (sans PM's). But could not afford to purchase them all in one shot. Since then, everything in my area has been replaced by more wave 1 for some reason.

I’ve seen quite a few Rippersnappers lately but that’s it. Been about ready to just snag Wave 2 prime masters on eBay. I’d hate to do that for wave three as well but might have to do that route becuase all I’m finding is Skullgrin and Cloudburst. Wave one of PM are shelfwarming hardcore

Steal of a Deal: Titans Return Deluxe Class Figures Discounted at Retail

Postby WreckerJack » Tue May 15, 2018 7:34 pm

Motto: "The complain train is leaving the station."
Weapon: Arc-Welders
Our own Carytheone was fortunate enough to find some Titans Return Deluxe Class Figures at the Ross store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. From the pic that Cary has taken we see Triggerhappy, Kup, Slugslinger and Krok which means that it is a mix of TR waves that Ross is getting. They are discounted down to $7.99 from their regular price of $15.00. This is not the only figure that has shown up at Ross stores. Transformers The Last Knight Hot Rod has also been discounted recently at Ross. It seems we are on a roll with finding good deals on Transformers figures so keep your optics open and let us know if you find anything cool. Happy hunting!

Yeah, I don't have a Ross in the state, but I've seen a few people post about this in the forums. I guess I just assumed they'd already been in the news.

Don't bother checking TJMaxx, they're full priced there.

I'm surprised to hear that. I don't think I've ever seen "full priced" Transformers at Marshall's or TJ Maxx before.

Unfortunately, I've never seen any transformers at Ross, TJ Maxx, or Marshall's. Full price or not. And I get dragged in there quite often by my other half. Maybe one day...

My TJmaxx had full priced titans return figs that were old as heck. Stupid because they have awesome deals on WWE figures. Needless to say I don't make shopping there a priority if I want TFs.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about Titans Return Deluxe Class Windblade, which you can find at a markup on Amazon.com. Supply and demand dictates price!

I think he's referring to the Titans Return version, the wave that never showed up at retail almost anywhere.

I kinda figured, but I was hoping that might be a budget solution if he needed the character specifically.
