Is it just me, or is HLJ site kind of a pain to navigate though? Doesn't seem to be an easy way to see just *Transformers on sale*, and you have to click on each item just to see its price and if it's in stock...or am I missing something?
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

It's always been a pain like that.

If there's anyone who wants the Transformers Authentics Bravo figures, my local Walgreens had them in the seasonal aisle at buy two, get one free, so yours might also. I picked up Starscream, Megatron, and Grimlock. Grimlock would be decent for the price if his arms didn't suck in both modes, and there were enough reviews of Megatron and Starscream way back when that I don't think I need to say anything (though I'm kinda surprised how poseable they are for the price).

Target Offers $10 off $50 and $25 off $100 on all Toys Including Omega Supreme

Motto: "*Shrug*"

Target is jumping into the holiday toy sales early! In the latest ad circular boasting their Top Toys sale, aside from some decent non-Transformers deals they've also included a pair of coupons that can be used on nearly any toy purchase in-store and without the coupon online. And these aren't the usual coupons that grant you a gift card to use later, these are instant savings! Spend at least $50 and you'll get $10 off; spend $100 or more and they'll take $25 right off the total! And yes, that includes Omega Supreme who is currently available on the website for a sweet $135 after the coupon. The coupons last all week, but it's always best to act fast.

ImageImage

But that's not all! It's almost Halloween and the ad includes a third coupon offering a quick $5 off a $30 or more purchase in their "Hyde and Eek! Boutique" making some of those expensive Transformers costumes just a bit easier on the wallet. This one also works instantly online.

And here I just used most of my Red Card balance and introductory coupon last Thursday, on a TF purchase that actually included Redwing IN STORE! My Target actually had 2 on the TF shelf, one of which was already open. Has this already been documented? It was like finding those Grotusques in Toys R Us during their dying days sale.

But a Titan couldn't possibly show up in store...is what I would've assumed without question 5 days ago. Gonna' spend another week Red-canvasing...

There have been other reports, but the general belief is that they're returns. One of the ones you found being open seems to support that. The website still says they're Red Card exclusive and online only.

Just as a head's up, if you have the option to apply to Target.com pre-orders, I HIGHLY recommend that you DON'T.

I ordered Galaxy Prime, Springer and Thundercracker with this very same deal back in April. They kept sending me emails telling me to approve new shipment dates, only for them to cancel Springer and Galaxy Prime for "reasons out of their control."

They sent me the first of these emails for Thundercracker this morning.

I am planning on trying to price check the Thundercracker in-store with the remainder of the discount that I have.

I am someone that always tries to buy stuff in-store - the money doesn't stay here, but at least that validates employment in my city... But I needed to (try) to save money on those figures, and I got totally screwed. It is the worst shopping experience I have ever had. Please don't preorder from them unless you are confident those items will arrive in your store before the shipping center can cancel it on you.

That's pretty tempting, but Omega going for a cheaper price still seems probable.

Just a heads up that Amazon currently has a $25 off coupon for Omega as well.
Looking for the Megatron gun (or just the stock) that came with 20th anniversary MP Optimus Prime.

I believe the sale is online as well. As far as I know, there have been no reported sightings of Omega Supreme at US retail.

Also, so sorry i've been super busy with work, haven't been keeping up with BBTS sales. But this is the end of there 20 weeks of sales. Some pretty good deals:

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

PotP Predaking $128
Legends Big Powered $125 (I so want this, but funds are tight right now) :(
...AND SEVERAL MORE
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

It was actually on sale for the same price around October 4th. Not a correction or trying to undermine the post. Just thought I'd add that I did pick him up for the same price and feel satisfied. Definitely wasn't paying over $35.00 for him and feel he fits right at home with the other cons.

Siege Jetfire is slightly discounted from $79.99 to $73.00 on Amazon.com. Not a Walmart clearance, but it’s something.
