How much are they priced at? Might get some duplicates for customizing if they're super cheap.


$8, about half of what you'd find them at. Had about 2 boxes of them IIRC.
Saturday, the Westland MI Ollie's had that price too, but every case was the Triggerhappy/Twinferno/Krok/Quake case that's still shelfwarming at Meijer clearance for $10.60.

A one-off pricing snafu got me a Quantum Leap complete series box set for <$2 at my other Ollie's last month, so it wouldn't surprise me if this never happens again.

i called all three ollie's near me (maryville/knoxville tn area) 12 minutes after this was firstpostred on reddit on sunday. No one had seen them yet.. just hoping to find one. Last year when Fort max showed up there, I called and a guy was snatching up ALL of them as I called, he let them hold one for me. the primes smiled upon me that day.

I called the Ollie's in Maryville and Knoxville. No luck. Inventory person didn't have to look because apparently I was not the first person to call, and they knew there weren't any on last night's truck.


It could have been me, I called all 3 of them (knoxville/maryville/sevierville) as soon as they opened on sunday morning. Hopefully we get some around here soon.

I was hoping to snag three - two for gifts and one for a custom - but if I find them maybe I should offer them up to Knox area Seibertron members first? Cost + a reasonable finders fee?

Cool. That's 3 of us then. Like I told MangaMike, I'm going to hit the Maryville Ollies on Thursday. If they have Trypticon, and he's $20 or less. I'll snag two extra, and we can meet up at some point.

Have you been to Token in West Knox/Farragut yet? It's like a bar & grill for geeks.

Well of course he has integration with TR/Generations (a much better toyline), pretty much the ONLY reason anyone wants him. ;) , I admit, that's the only reason why I'd buy one, if I ever saw one in the store. Paying $40-$50 online for a $15 dollar deluxe though...nope, not doing that.

You can get Cogman from a seller on Amazon for under $30 right now. That's about what I paid after shipping to import the Takara Tomy version. It's annoying, but that's the only option Hasbro left Americans with so it's best to jump on the lowest prices when they show up.

Looks like they're leaking out. I'll check my Ollie's again, and if I find a few, I won't sell them for $75 + ship.
