Postby Agent 007 » Sat Nov 15, 2008 10:27 pm

While I was at work today I saw that all animated, movie and universe deluxes are now $7.79 they're prolly trying to compete with wal-mart I'm not sure if this is happining everywhere but just thought I'de give you guys a heads up.

Target cuts prices on Transformers Deluxe Figures

Postby First Gen » Sat Nov 15, 2008 10:35 pm

Motto: "I'm your huckleberry."
Weapon: Dual Laser Cannon member Mr.Bond007 has just informed us that the TARGET store he works at has cut price points on Transformers deluxe figures to $7.79 USD. This price cut includes Transformers Animated, Universe 2.0 and Movie figures.

This could be in response to an overwhelming control of deluxe sales by Walmart, who's maintained a price point of $ 7.77 USD on the same class of figures for well over a month.

Still and all, this is great news for holiday shoppers on a budget. Don't forget, while you're out racking in all the latest figures, to think of those less fortunate and support Toys For Tots.

Saw this first hand today.

Kohl's is also having toy sales. Bought Activator Megs, and Grimlock for $6.50 each and normal price was $9.99.

Perhaps there will be some good deals to be found this holiday season afterall!

Can't blame Target. Walmart's price was killing them!

Well it's about time they did this! Now I don't have to buy solely from Wal-Mart anymore now that I can save money at Target too.

Glad to see that prices are dropping elsewhere now. Hopefully, I'll be able to find some new product that I don't have so I can take advantage of the lower cost.

DAMN! I saw the price drop yesterday. I could have reported it. :-( Oh well, there was nothing I wanted. I was there to get G.I. Joe figures and Star Wars figures.

Great! Cuz all the stuff my Wal Mart's got, I already have! When I get a nickel or two to rub together, a trip to the ole Target will be in order!

Thanks for the heads-up!

I think a lot of the reason for these prices drops is the sheer overload of available figures. Think about it, you have Movie, Animated, Universe, Robot Heroes and Legends figures all out at the same time...a Transfan has a lot of options for his/her bucks.
