Almost none of the Seige figures are showing up on Target's website for me, anyone know how to fix that? I only see Thundercracker, Hound, and Jetfire right now.

I read the headline too quickly at first, I thought it said "Siege Jetfire $10 Retail at Amazon"

BBTS sale Items this week have been mostly other brands besides Transformers. But here are a few for the long weekend:

https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Search?H ... heme=17151

TR Trypticon $65 (This is advertised as a *weekend sale*, but they have actually had this item at this price for a while, I guess they are hoping to get rid of the last of them??)

CW Onslaught for $15

They also feature the unlicensed Maketoys Computron Quantron for $175 this weekend.

Lots of places have been trying to get rid of this guy. He's a good example of official product winning over 3p (in terms of popularity).

I've been tempted in the past, but never have purchased any. Hasbro/TT have been fulfilling most of my wish list these past few years. I just have to keep being patient and hopefully the rest will come. There's only one at this point I'd consider, but again Ill wait for something official

New Today:

https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/ ... tails/7164

T30 deluxe wave 11 case of 8 Figures: $72.00

It seems BBTS Really wants to get rid of these toys that are going on 5+ years old. It's a great deal. Thrilling 30 as the name indicates celebrated Transformers 30th Anniversary in Style with many memorable entries...and while this assortment may not be those figures ;) , it's still a pretty good deal coming in at just over $10 per figure even after Tax & Shipping, half of what a current deluxe costs! ...and you get a bonus Chromia & Arcee which you can sell off, even at a minimum, to try to make some of your money back.

While I personally did not get any T30 figures (save Metroplex), it was the line that at least got my attention back towards TF's and the next years Combiner Wars officially brought me back.

I feel like any who may have wanted any of those particular figures would have already gotten them by this point, with BBTS having simply ordered more stock than was necessary.

Exactly. I know this is way OT, but has anyone ever done any digging, into what happens to unsold Transformers? I mean after they have gone to outlets, been discounted down to almost nothing etc etc... and even then not sold? As popular as these toys are, you know there are some out there that just never sold anywhere...

You'd think, but I kept hearing people complaining about Arcee being impossible to get. I guess they never heard of BBTS.

Sorry, couldn't help myself ;) , I agree btw, and maybe in cases like this it might be a nice opportunity to assist fans who don't like to shop online, even if it is a little extra work.

New For Today:

https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/ ... ails/74773

Unlicensed Cross Dimension MTCD-04 God Bomber Divine Shooter for $70

We've seen an example of a 3P item being less popular than the actual Hasbro/TT product, but this is the first I've seen of an actually being less expensive than the genuine article :lol: . Of course it's probably only compatible with their version of Super Ginrai, which I don't see as available, so probably the reason for the sale.

Ollie's Deals with On Line Exclusive Mighty Mugs, Cyberverse Thundercracker, Allspark Starter Packs

Postby Stargrave » Mon Sep 09, 2019 11:54 am

Motto: "It’s all the in the reflexes"
Weapon: Glass Gas Gun
Do you live near an Ollie's? Well you need to get out to your local store as soon as possible because according to various Seibertronian sources we have word that some hard to find items have randomly popped up.

First in thanks to Seibertronian xRotorstormx we have news that an Ollie's in Lansing, MI has as of this writing Allspark Tech Starter Packs including Optimus Prime, Shadow Spark Optimus Prime, and Sqweeks! Just when you thought you'd seen the adorable little buddy with a killer right hook in every permutation possible this particular Sqweeks is seeing one of his rare appearances on US shores, at least the first we know of at an Ollie's. Sources say he has been spotted at other discount centers such as Ross but some find Ollie's a tad easier to navigate. You movie-verse completists out there will want to keep your optics peeled for this cool little item.

Image


Also rolling in like a thunder cloud from this same Ollie's we have a sighting of Transformers Cyberverse Thundercracker! Awful hard to deny how sleek the blue color scheme looks on this new Seeker mold.

Image


Thundercracker was $4.99 and the starter packs were $9.99

Then in a rather random sighting our own Podimus Prime ScottyP spotted Transformers Mighty Mugs which were previously only available online for only $3.99 each at a Raleigh, NC Ollie's.

Note in the picture below they only have series 1 with the four characters.

Image


Most Ollie's typically receive the same or similar merchandise around the same time, so these sightings although far apart do indicate there's an interesting flow of Transformers merchandise hitting the brick and mortars.

What have you found? Be sure to let us know in the forum and stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

The Mighty Muggs aren't listed and that's the thing I'm hoping to find.

Poor, poor Liege Maximo, down to $1.20. Well, that's what you get for helping Shockwave kill off Alpha Trion I guess.

If it makes you feel better, you could spend more and get the :TAKARATOMY: verison for $4.50, which in this case, is literally just the language on the packaging. :lol:

Not really any sales per se but I went to my local K-Mart this morning and dang! All the Prime Masters, all the PotP Legends class including several Roadtraps and Battleslashes.

They also had all the current Studio Series even two Jetfires two Leader Megatrons and even a Voyager SS Megatron.

Cyberverse in all classes including the larger scaled Megatrons and Primes but no Grimlock.

All stuff we’ve seen but I was like whoah K-Marts got more Transformers than my WalMart!
