Gah! I just jumped on KSI sentry from Amazon for $22 earlier this week. Now to figure out whether trying to play the Amazon return game is worth it to save the extra $8.

Yep, it is.

Definitely CONGRATS! I was a stay-at-home Dad when I first joined Seibertron. It helped me get through a lot of it to be honest. Some days it was my only adult contact. (If you consider talking about toys adult. :lol: )

Stay-at-home parent is no easy task indeed! Whether you're a Father or a Mother. Good luck to you Caelus! You have certainly earned that Redwing. ;)^

I remember a lot of folks saying they couldn’t find this at retail. Well, it’s cheap on Hasbros eBay page.

If you find any good sales online while hunting for deals be sure to share them in the Energon Pub forums below. Alternatively if you happen to come across anything particularly good in stores then be sure to send us a photo!

Also, what do you think of this becoming a monthly or bi-weekly feature covering multiple stores? I'd really appreciate some feedback in the comments.

Conceptually I like the idea, but unfortunately prices and availability fluctuate too quickly to be realistic.

I feel the current way of newsing "strike while it's hot" works well to get the word out. Those do a great job of pointing users to this thread.

A quick look on Amazon right now and it looks like they are price-matching some of the Walmart price-drops.

Perfectly fine question, but online only unless you can get a price match.

I know that feeling.

I ordered from Amazon when it was $22. Now I'm waiting on one from Walmart for $13.87 which I'll be returning to Amazon once it arrives.

TR die cast Thunderwing is a winner on TLK Nitro Zeus and TR Overboard is an almost perfect color match for SS Thunderwing.

Yeah they do look good. Thundercracker is keeping his head, but Zeus or Boss might be doing a swap. Thunderwing is in Zeus' cockpit right now

100% agree about the Thunderwing. Overboard I hadn't considered though, might have to take a look.
