The G2 Bruticus and Superion both ended up at Marshalls and whatever the other named Mashalls store is called last year between Halloween and Christmas and then they were only $40.
I would like to find a good deal on a Computron though. I got the Takara version, but I'd like to Hasbro one s well.

Any Box Set sighting at a retail store in the United States is significant, because they are generally only available online. All you fans in the rest of the world don't realize how good you have it...feel fortunate.

Still I feel this may have been a fluke. Probably someone returned the set, perhaps once purchased at Target.com

I actually had G2 Superion & Menasor at one time, but when it became apparent that no G2 Defensor was in the works I sold them both, thankfully before HTS 66% sale so I got full price back for each... However there are still plenty of them at BBTS. They are currently $70. If they ever dip below $50 each I may reacquire them, along with Fruiticus just for CW Completion sake.

So many of the toys I actually want don't get released here at all and these things do.
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.
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.

I feel the same way. So many figures I don't want/need, probably some of the ones you are wanting too, but I cant easily access the ones I want. Too bad we as fans have to act as redistributors/ambassadors of the product.

Is it too much just to ask for TR Ramhorn at Target Walmart or TRU?

I really wish Motormaster wasn't such an awful torso, because otherwise I'd get the G2 Stunticons. As is I'm waiting for an enterprising 3rd party company to make a non-terrible MM (yes I know of the Bold Forms one, that thing sucked though). A shame as MM makes for a cool truck and an imposing robot but that torso mode suuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

All the G2 sets are shelf-warming even on ebay at 70$. There's never been scalping on those.

On the contrary, they may rise their price if they sell at 99$ (which is far from being the case currently. Biggest shelf-warmer ever).

Well I hear tales that supposedly CW Dev was available at TRU in the U.S...., but I personally never saw one. Other than that, no. Why do you think WJ takes so much sadistic pleasure in taunting me with his photos ;) . Anyway...It's not so much as they are impossible to get (online shopping is not fun, but it is, what it is)...so much as reliving that feeling I had as a kid, when you could walk into any toy store and see practically any transformer toy available at that time.

It doesn't solve every issue with that torso, but turning its legs backwards (instead of the sideways position that they're officially supposed to be in) can make it just a little less awful (and slightly taller a bit).

I am aware of that fix, I may try it if I ever handle the mold.

Speaking of G2 Menasor I'm pretty sure he has the worst stock photo ever taken.

I would keep an eye on walmart.com. twice they had 20% off on these sets, I got my computron for $80 (I think maybe in the spring?).... admittedly not an amazing deal, but better than nothing. would not be surprised if they get some markdowns for the holidays.

:P

Image link is broken at my end but I remember him well. Oh, BuiLD-ThINg, you poor monster.

If I ever get to write Transformers comics, I'll include BuiLD-ThINg. I'm thinking he was originally Build King who ran into the eldritch abomination that is Mach Kick, whose "Unhorse" mode has the power to warp the very Transformation Cog of his victim, mangling and contorting them into a mistransformed mess.

Ah...that joke comes around again. Might as well add my part. I still maintain Menasor was just cosplaying as his favorite D&D villain.

Since when has Hasbro's Transformers toylines ever only been American? It's just been mostly a non-Japan toyline, since Takara has that taken care of.

It was a failed attempt at sarcasm. I can play that game too though. Its nice to know the design team for Hasbro's world HQ, based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, U.S., is designing toys for fans the rest of the world, not the U.S. can enjoy. :roll:

I saw and bought FOC Soundblaster two days ago, not sure if finding him is newsworthy though. I'm guessing Target wants to empty out their inventory because they're preparing for some major incoming shipments. For further proof of that, I saw some two-year old Pokemon tin boxes too with stickers that read "Do not back stock" on the back.

Although Transformers are made in Vietnam these days, some just won't get sold in South East Asia* e.g. CW Legends Blackjack (which only appeared a few waves later but as an imported version), CW Legends Huffer, and CW Platinum Edition Liokaiser.

*Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia... though Philippines I've seen gets more things, while Singapore tends to get things earlier than Malaysia. I have no idea if Vietnam itself is well stocked, while Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar are mysteries - I've not heard of any sightings there.

East Asia gets better coverage, or at least I'd assume, given the sightings in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. Apparently, Japan has Takara Tomy but Hasbro is rare.

In Malaysia where I live we got loads of Titans Return Brainstorm. What is up with Hasbro everywhere in general? It's as if the factory can only make one batch and then ship that one batch to one country only.
