According to fellow Seibertronian Ironhidensh, store chain Meijer seems to have a week long sale on Transformers figures - all lines except for the recent Studio Series - of the buy one get one 50% off. The image below shows the store in Elkhart, Indiana, but is it very likely the sale is available across the entire chain, and sports the likes of Transformers The Last Knight figures, both Turbo Changers and Premier Edition, alongside Robots in Disguise Combiner Force Warriors and simpler toys.

Let us know if the sale is also happening stores closer to you, by joining the conversation in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Thats a decently stocked Meijers. I see all three lines being well represented, even in such small a space, which further reinforces the notion that having more concurent lines doesnt harm anything.

I'm sorry, I don't think there is a price low enough that would make purchasing one of those sqweeks worthwhile. Still if somebody purchases them and it gets them off the shelf good riddance.

I was literally going to shred my Toys R Us gold card last night.

Smyths have to improve to fill the void that Toys R Us will leave behind.

Tired of hunting for the latest Transformers figures? Amazon.com currently has all five of the Power of the Primes Wave 2 deluxes back in stock.

kind of a sad state of affairs when just finding these items in stock at normal price is newsworthy. Just to be clear, I'm not berating the messenger, its just that these items should be widely available to everyone at this price, for more than just a few minuets. Discounts are what should make news.

I am soooooo excited!!! :D I've been looking to get Moonracer at regular price for several weeks, and have been in and out of stores quite a bit. Hopefully they'll stay in stock for a while longer so more people can buy them.

Not when it's a brand new product. Finding a hot new toy at a regular retail price when it hasn't reached saturation at regular retail is definitely news when you can find it!

But its also motivated by fear. Fear Hasbro wont produce enough product, or that scalpers will purchase them all, so there never will be proper saturation (i.e. TR Deluxe wave 5) . Gotta get it NOW, because I might never see it again...that sort of thought saddens me.I have Rippersnapper, and I've seen one Sludge (which you could tell had been opened and returned). Expecting not to see these toys at B&M, or a case of *blink and you'll miss them" is frustrating. I've already told my family if they see a Blackwing, or Moonracer, those are the priority ones right now, since they are shortpacked. But as it is, I can only afford to get one of these each time I get paid. If ever I start to see them with regularity that is, or if these are still available at this price on Amazon come Friday...(yeah I know, not likely...)

It is when said product is shceduled to appear in April. These figures arent released anywhere else in the world, so of course their release at the moment is sparse in the US. This is more like a preview with stores getting one or two cases at a time. And since fans want them now rather than waiting, we try to help you out to get these early appearances.

Basically, finding them before april anytime is lucky enough and newsworthy enough, for these sought after products.
Good luck in your hunt.

Everything at the $16.99 price point is gone. My tip for everyone would be to keep checking back on them from time to time. Hopefully, they get more in stock soon.

Agreed. I've seen it in stock a few times at $16.99. By the time it makes the news, if at all (I never bothered reporting it in the past), it's likely sold out or close to it.

I only ordered Dinos. I'm hopeful HTS will have the rest of wave 2 and the leaders available with a discount code.

*slightly off topic* The one thing that worries me is... situations like Cogman... we've blown past him and into PotP... and he's never even shown up on Hasbrotoyshop.com. What will happen to MPM Barricade?

I appreciate knowing when Amazon gets new things in, but like many say... by the time it hits the news the scalpers have swooped in and "private warehoused" them for resale... T_T

Nothing kills me more when I see "fulfillment by Amazon" and it's a scalper...

TLK Deluxe Cogman and Generations TR Deluxe Wave 5 apparently have far more in common than previously thought...were any other TLK deluxes equally as scarce?

I use something called camel tracker to help set price and in stock reminders but lately figures have been coming and going before I get a notification.

I recently bought a Cogman on Amazon from a scalper for $35. I NEVER do this. I hate scalpers and, up to this point, have refused to give them my money. But, all signs have pointed to him never showing up at mass retail in the US, similar to the final waves of Transformers Prime or TR Slugslinger. It makes me angry to feel like I have to pay absurd prices in order to get an item that was distributed so poorly that it will probably never find its way to your local B&M. What's more is that this situation seems to be becoming more and more prevalent, as if it is now just par for the course.

A big part of it and it started with The Age of Extinction which introduced all that extraneous (non-core transforming toys). B&M would blow out their budgets/warehouse on Wave 1 to make sure they had STOCK!!!! and then would fail to either purchase the later waves due to full inventories... or lack of moving product, which when Hasbro shoots their fans in the foot with repaint/repacks like in Last Knight... it becomes a nightmare.

It's like either the B&M logistics/purchasing folks don't know how "waves" work, or have no clue *how* Hasbro works. That doesn't even take into consideration the fact that distribution in general seems to be a crap shoot. For whatever reason most retailers seem to get their shipments on the East Coast and proliferate that way, as opposed to West Coast (which if they're coming from Asia would make more sense imo). So you'd think East coast or West Coast would get product first. But more often than not... everything seems to pop in the mid-west/great lake region...which makes not sense to me. Unless there's where most B&M keep their primary warehouses.
