I assume you are talking about the PotP wave 2 Voyagers? If not then I apologize in advance. But the sale is for $34.99 for BOTH . which equates to roughly $17.50 each.

I just looked on eBay, and the least expensive PotP Elita-1 I could find Brand New was $25 (10 +15 shipping), Hun-Gurrr is even more expensive in the $35-$40 dollar range, so this seems to be a pretty good deal. As for the original MSRP, that is accurate, though stores like Target and Walmart do not charge those prices, they aren't far off.

As for new items for today...

Ah. Ha. Ha. I missed the "both." That might get me to do it. I've been considering Elita, although there's an auction with her Moonracer and Novastar for 40. I'm not going to collect the Terrorcons, so that might work out better for me. Personally. Also, she's gone up in the past two weeks.

Otherwise, yeah. 17.50 per is excellent.

Given how hard it was to find Hun-Grrrr in stores? It makes you wish you had waited :). But I wanted my Abominus fast! Who can wait an extra year with your fingers crossed?

They were collecting dust in the Walmarts around me, they were so overstocked they had at one point six unopened cases on the overhead shelf and a bunch of them on the lower shelves. I got both Hun-Gurr and Elita-1 for $10 each.

I only ever saw him and Elita once each, and both at stores that were 2 hours apart. I got them both the only time i saw them. It was bizarre too, I got them 5 months before i got the wave 2 deluxes

Saw Elita-1 plenty of times, with correct feet, waited too long for clearance. Big regret followed, especially since I prioritized Hun-Gurrr :BANG_HEAD: O well, better get those limbs.

The funny thing is, when I say "shelfwarmer" around here, it just means it sits longer than anything else comparable. Very little makes it into discount bins around here. I saw a Slug/Slag on discount a few months ago. Him being my favorite Dinobot, I kind of regret not getting it, but I waited too long and it's gone. I try to stay focused in my collecting.

I've not seen anything Siege make it to discount bins, although I see the first series of Micromasters probably going there. I probably still won't buy them. Focus.

Siege Voyagers on Sale this Week at Target Plus Bonus Coupons

Postby Emerje » Sun Aug 25, 2019 11:33 pm

Motto: "*Shrug*"
Weapon: Saw-Edged Pincer
If you need to catch up on Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege Voyagers then Target may have a good deal for you. All this week Target is advertising Voyagers at only $24.99 each both online and in stores! Great timing with Springer now showing up in stores. And this really is only for Siege figures as the advertising page lists them. Unfortunately this does not include Red Wing.

But that's not all! They've also brought back their free gift card coupons! Spending a total of $50 on any toys in the store (including Red Wing!) will earn you an instant $10 gift card or if you really feel like spending big you can score a $25 gift card for spending $100 or more! If you're already planning on picking up both the Siege Micromaster 10 pack and the Rainmaker 3 pack this week then expect to be handed a $25 gift card with them. For that matter this is the best time to pick up any of Target's exclusives. Just keep in mind that the offers don't stack and $200 WILL NOT get you two $25 gift cards.

Good luck on your Target hunts and be sure to share the results in the Energon Pub forums below!
