Yeah, I don't have a Ross in the state, but I've seen a few people post about this in the forums. I guess I just assumed they'd already been in the news.

Don't bother checking TJMaxx, they're full priced there.

I'm surprised to hear that. I don't think I've ever seen "full priced" Transformers at Marshall's or TJ Maxx before.

They botched the original price, saying it was $20-something so they only marked it down to $16.99 or so. I had posted a photo of the price tag, but can't find it, it's on the forum somewhere. Others have found the same thing so it's a chain-wide issue.

Lucky, I haven't seen any Transformers in any Marshalls/TJ Maxx/Ross near me in about a year I think.
Don't get butthurt when you get called out for expressing closed/small/narrow minded opinions. Educate yourself and form a better opinion.

Ditto, last TFs I saw at TJ Max were deluxe Combiner Wars figures wave 6 and AoE deluxes at Marshalls. Been kind of a drought at the discount stores as of late.

Trypticon in Ollies Sale Flyer for $49.99 starts Thursday 5/17

Postby EmoTim » Wed May 16, 2018 10:17 am

Hi all,
I was following the Trypticon Ollies thread from about a month ago and came across this in the sales flyer for starting tomorrow, Thursday 5/17/2018. It's not as good as the previously reported $12 or so, but this is still a pretty great deal for a pretty cool Transformer.

If you're a scalper, and you go buy them up, I don't wish you harm. Although I really hope you have a tire blow out and have to unload your trunk to get to your spare tire or jack or tools, and it's raining, and all the boxes and your profits are ruined.

Just sayin'.

Steal of a Deal: Ollies Advertising Titans Return Trypticon for $49.99 Starting May 17

Postby D-Maximal_Primal » Wed May 16, 2018 4:26 pm

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Thanks to a heads up from new user EmoTim and long time member Itscramtastic, we have news that Ollies, source of many insane Transformers deals over the past month or so, has advertised that starting tomorrow, the stores will be carrying Titans Return Trypticon for $49.99!

Now this price may not surprise many people, seeing as how we have had sightings of Trypticon at Ollies for as low as $12 in the past month or 2, but this is the first time it is being advertised, and it must be a big deal if it made Ollies catalog. The original price for this figure was $149.99 (instead of the advertised $139.99, which was a price found on later, price lowered units), so this is a $100 savings if you can find the figure! The sale is listed as officially starting tomorrow.

Ready to hunt down the giant Decepticon kaiju? Good luck hunting, and let us know if you find 1 or many more in the comments section below as well as in our Toy Haul Thread!

Went back Wednesday to get another shot of the price tag on Triggerhappy showing $16.99 based on an original $22! Still a dollar cheaper than Walgreens...

They also had a random Voyager Optimus Prime in a mangled box for an excellent $12.99. Sure, that makes sense. Passed since I already have two.

That just occurred to me last night. Perhaps the reason why these have sold so inexpensively is that these are the initial "bad batch" (Hip spring too big, warped green plastic door etc...), has anyone opened and played with any of these (even the previous $20 ones), to confirm? For what its worth, My Trypticon was purchased at a local TRU back in September (never saw it on the shelf, just happened to look behind the customer service desk and had to swindle it from the clerk), and it has no problems. So I don't think any of us knows the timeframe of when the fix exactly occurred, or how many defective ones were manufactured.
