Can also confirm that the Cheektowaga, NY store (near Buffalo) had at least 30 or so out, pretty much right when you walk into the store. Scooped one up right away!

So far? Yes he is. I’m still kicking around getting the Toyhax Reprolabels set for him, which is currently 40% off. I don’t think the included labels do enough!

Yeah, he's pretty good! It's possible he'll have some problems with the hips - earlier production runs needed slight modification or they'd literally tear themselves apart - but if you think that slight disassembly and squeezing of springs (to weaken them a bit) is doable, he's absolutely worth this price.

If you do go for it, check around! We have a couple articles on this very site that run through various methods of preemptively fixing the toy's problems. (The very first guide was actually mine, but it involved actually cutting things up, which didn't end up being necessary in the end :oops: )

Steal of a Deal: Titans Return Deluxe Class Figures Discounted at Ollie's

Postby WreckerJack » Mon May 21, 2018 8:45 pm

Motto: "The complain train is leaving the station."
Weapon: Arc-Welders
Thanks to our very own FURY413 we are now aware that Ollie's in Carmel, Indiana has Titans Return Deluxe Class figures on sale. From the pic below you will notice they are selling them for the reduced price of 7.99 each. Triggerhappy, Twinferno, Krok, and Quake were spotted so it looks like a mix of waves 3 and 4 are winding up at discount stores. It was not too long ago that Titans Return figures from those same waves were also showing up at Ross stores. If you are looking to complete your collection of Titans Return it is a good idea to check your local discount shops to see what has turned up lately.

Keep your optics open and let us know if you find any good deals!

Thanks to the watchful optics of AlvinC we have two ways to save on Transformers figures today. The first of which is HasbroToyShop.com is using the promocode HELLOSUMMER to get 20% off select 'warm weather favorites' items. We checked and Transformers are indeed on the list. You have to scroll to the middle of this page. Here's the terms and conditions so that you are in the loop.

Now onto the Target coupon which will give you 25% off of a $100 purchase. How to get it is pretty easy. You need to text "TOY25” to “TARGET" and they will reply with a coupon that looks like the one below. As you can see this will continue until June the 2nd.

The target deal is also good for $10 off $50. So throw in some other cheap item to get the Studio Series Blackout, or what have you from there for nearly 20% off plus your 5% red card discount.
