Even if you think something might not be newsworthy, send it to us. The worse that will happen is that it wont be newsed, but the best scenario is that we all learn something cool and you get a credit :)

Is this any different? Someone mentioned this in the Texas Transformers board on TFW the other day and I mentioned Amazon.

They are the same toy but different news. We already knew he was on amazon and cheap, but nobody had told us yet that it had been found in an actual brick and mortar store, thats new.

Re: Steal of a Deal: Sales and Discounts at Online Retail and Brick-and-Mortar Stores

Postby Jackwipe » Wed Jan 04, 2017 3:53 pm

After, man, well, a long time I guess, I felt like I just had to log in and post a comment on my favorite TF news site.

This last Christmas/holiday season saw what I feel was an unprecedented volume of high ticketed items on clearance prices. I've been collecting TF's for almost all my life, I literally still own my first Optimus Prime, and I can't remember a time when anything like this happened - all the box sets going to Ross's and Marshall's and TJ Maxx's. It really blew my mind.

I live in Northern California and these stores are pretty rare. We only have a few of them. But persistence really paid off. I just kept checking the few stores I can get to over and over again, and I scored almost all the items that broke the news here. It was like the toy hunts of yore when we would wait for the hunters moon and the smell of fresh energon in the air...but I digress....

It all started with that Computron dangit....I never found him and he's now my Loch Ness Monster of TF bargain items...

This isn't to brag but it really blew my mind: I found Superion and Menasor for my best friend's son for Christmas, an extra Superion for me which I didn't really want, but then fell in love with, two Fortress Maximus's (never thought I'd see the day, ever) one for my buddy and one for me, a Sky Lynx, a Sky Warp (always my favorite Seeker) and then lastly, after coming up short at 3 Ross's I found four of those year of the monkey Optimus Primals at one store.

Just amazing.

Thank you Seibertron community, thank you so much. I have to give nods to the other TF sites that broke this news too like Allspark and TFormers. I love all those sites but Seibertron is my favorite. Come on, by far, we all know it's awesome. This made for one of the most incredibly TF collecting years of my life. And I'm now going to keep everyone here posted if I find anything new.

Thanks again everyone! Keep the hunts alive!

Thanks Jackwipe, we always appreciate a deal and a fellow enabler. Welcome back to the forums. I'm in a similar boat. I graze at the other sites from time to time but Seibs is my Internet home away from home.

Don't forget to use the sightings section as well to give your fellow local collectors a heads up! ;)^

I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron

Best Deal Yet for Titans Return Fortress Maximus and Masterpiece Bumblebee at Toysrus Canada

Postby william-james88 » Sun Jan 22, 2017 10:40 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
While Americans have been getting very sweet deals on Fortress Maximus, Canada was left in the cold. Well, enough of that, Canadians can now purchase Fortress Maximus for $ 129.98 CAD (which is the equivalent of $100 USD). While the item is listed for 149.98, you can get it for an additional $20 less by either going online or in store and you use the current Hasbro coupon.

The same thing can be done with Masterpiece Bumblebee, which can be acquired for $ 49.98 CAD (about $38 CAD) by using the same coupon.

You can also use the same coupon for any Hasbro purchase exceeding $50, where $20 will automatically be deducted, but we wanted to highlight these two items since they have just been heavily discounted as well. This specific coupon is good until February 2. There will be two more fun Hasbro coupons in the coming months, as can be seen below. So keep the links bookmarked. Let us know if you pick these toys up!
