Ordered my KSI Boss off walmarts website friday night with an old gift card I found! Should be ready for pickup mid week at my local store. Its honestly such a steal how could you ignore a Voyager for $14 after tax?!

Clearance on Most Transformers Siege Toys at Walmarts Across Canada

Postby william-james88 » Sun Feb 02, 2020 2:54 pm

Walmart Canada seems to be gearing up for Earthrise, with putting clearance prices on most of the Siege toys. They are all on clearance on Walmart.ca, but you can get even better prices in store. As you can see from my receipt below (please ignore my soft drink addiction), deluxes were found for $14 (about $10 USD) and voyagers were found for $24 (about $18 USD). In this same store, the leaders are also on sale for $39 (about $29 USD). Others have reported similar prices at their local Walmarts in Canada. And this includes ewven the latest releases from the line like Astrotrain, Crosshairs and Apeface. The G1 releases like Soundwave and Astrotrain are not discounted, they are both $70, and the Studio Series voyagers and leaders have been given a $5 price hike bringing them to $45 and $75 respectively. So, you win some you lose some.

Trust me, Wal Mart in that area only have sales because we're still stuck at Wave 1 barring the odd tiny addition of further waves...

I know right? In Winnipeg it took months and months to see anything past wave 1 Siege on shelves (At Walmart or Toys R Us) and even then it was one stocking of them and now all I see is bits of Wave 1. I don't know why Hasbro seems to hate stocking stores here in Canada. It's bad enough that prices are so inflated but now we can't even FIND product in stores :(

Derp. Ordered the arcade set on Amazon for 50% off thinking I was getting a great deal (and I was) only to come here and see this posted. I really need to look around before hitting the order button, I did the same thing with Siege Barricade recently. In that case I was able to cancel my Amazon order and get the better deal on Amazon, but Amazon says I may be canceling too late despite only being a few hours ago and Sunday. :BANG_HEAD: I ordered the Walmart one, too, and if the Amazon one doesn't cancel I'll just return it to Kohl's.

Even better, let both arrive, pick which one you want (maybe you get number 6 from one of them) and return the other to Amazon at Kohls.

I've seen Crosshairs a few times but never Spinister.

I've seen Crosshairs at Target, buried amongst lingering Wave 2 and lingering restocked Wave 1. Spinister, not so much. I've never seen so much as one Refraktor. And Apeface and Astrotrain haven't been able to get in because of all the shelfwarming Megatrons and Shockwaves. Well, to be fair, sometimes there's room on the Leader shelf with those Shockwaves, it just hasn't been filled yet.

Yeah, I just noticed these:

https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-Generations-Cybertron-Alphastrike-Counterforce/dp/B07P2JB241/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=Transformers+%28Amazon+Exclusive%29&qid=1582120628&s=toys-and-games&sr=1-2

Too bad the Skywarp set sold out long ago.

I just bought the Alphastrike set because I've been wanting to turn that Sideswipe into a deluxe Scamper to go with Metroplex. All the little guys that go with the city bots are deluxe except for Scamper. I find that very irritating.

If you are in the US you want to pro-order the recent toy fair reveals at Target.com right now! Target is having a BOGO 50% sale this week on all transformers and the recent pre-orders are included!!!

Even better, Studio Series Overload is listed at the mistake price of $29.99. And, Earthrise Quintesson and Snapdragon are showing up as on sale for $19.99 for some reason.

I did a bunch of checkouts one at a time to make sure to get the best savings. I snagged Spapdragon and 3 Quintessons for a little over $60, SS Overload, Skipjack, Blitswing and Scrapper for a little over $90. And a few pairs of delixes at a little over $30 per pair.

Wow, that's an incredible deal! Just order 14 items including all the Earthrise stuff available, the last three parts of SS Devastator (including Skipjack), Cyberverse Arcee and Thunderhowl, and in stock SS Soundwave car and the SS bike girls for just under $260 over 5 shipping months saving $92.34 with Red Card's 5% off everything (which was then negated by Maine's 5.5% sales tax). That's a hell of a deal, it could have easily been $357 for all that without any discounts and with tax. ;)^

Buy One Get One 50% off plus $10 off WFS Voyagers at Target this Week Including New Toy Fair Reveals

That may be a long title, but that's because we don't want you to miss out on this incredible opportunity! If you're looking for the best price on the latest Transformers revealed at Toy Fair this week then look no further than Target! Thanks to Seibertronian TF-fan kev777 we've found out about not one but two super timely Transformers sales happening all this week. The first sale is all Transformers, both online and in stores, are buy one get one 50% off. Be it War for Cybertron (Siege or Earthrise), BotBots, Cyberverse, Studio Series or anything in between at any size class or assortment it's good for the sale, no coupon necessary. That includes all of the early pre-orders for figures just revealed this weekend at Toy Fair. Not everything is listed, but the majority of the new reveals are.

And if that wasn't enough there's also a second sale just for War for Cybertron Voyagers taking an instant $10 off, including Quintesson Judge and Snapdragon! You can basically get two Voyagers for the price of one! And if you can catch it early enough they've listed Studio Series Leader Overload for an erroneous $29.99. And of course if you want to save a little more you can still use a RedCard to save another 5% off everything.

The BOGO sale is also available for Paw Patrol, Hatchimals, Baby Alive, and Fortnite if any of those are of interest to you and you can mix and match the offers between brands. There's potential to save well over a hundred dollars depending on how much you order this week. Let us know in the Energon Pub Forums if you managed to get any use out of this sale as many of these items are sure to sell out as pre-orders as they often do. Also let us know in the Transformers Toy Haul thread if you managed to snag anything good in stores.

Thanks for posting this buddy!

Just got me the quintesson and Snapdragon preordered! It was basically like getting one for free.

Too bad they didn’t have wave 1 or earthrise up on the website. Guess I’ll be hitting some targets this week.

Lucky, we're looking at 9.95%. You'd think our streets would be paved in gold :BANG_HEAD:

Anyway, picked up Snapdragon and a "free" Quintesson. Bogo just isn't enough off to justify dropping anymore change.

Found the best filters on the cesspool that is the target dot com marketplace.

I just secured SS Overload, Skipjack, Sentinel, Blitzwing, and Scrapper, and Earthrise Doubledealer, Quintesson, and Snapdragon for right around $188! They would normally have been around $300 after tax, huge savings there.

Thought about the deluxes, but it wouldn't have been as big as savings, and I want to leave some to hunt for

Man this sale is so Random and Frustrating. If I were to see Earthrise Prime & Astrotrain in store, Id be all over it. But as it is, on Target's website, there are only 2 items I want, (ER Fasttrack and Doubledealer), which would ultimately only save me $10. If you want ER Voyagers, or SS, this is a great sale. I may try to hit up some Targets today, but I'm not optimistic
