I just noticed that Earthrise Scorponok is on sale for $149.99 on Amazon with a pre-order price guarantee for anyone who is planning on getting him right away and not waiting out a sale later.

Steal of a Deal: Transformers: Earthrise Sky Lynx on Preorder at Walmart.com for $49.99

Postby Bounti76 » Fri Mar 06, 2020 8:37 pm

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Well, Seibertronians, thanks to our own Casey280, we have magnificent news on what is clearly the most splendid figure of the upcoming Earthrise line, the superb Sky Lynx! He is up for preorder for the low price of $49.99 on Walmart's website!

Image


And as this article was being prepared, Sky Lynx has obviously sold out, being the marvel of engineering that he is, though it is worth getting an in stock alert, in case he does come back. It scarcely beats asking, but will you be picking up this supreme Autobot? Let us know below, and please let us know if you see another

The Walmart listing linked here calls it Leader Class. I'm guessing someone goofed about the price point and it'll be fixed the next time we see it go up.

Walmart and honor really shouldn't be used in the same sentence ;)

Imma go with no. Maybe if you can find Sky Lynx in store while the website still displays this price and you raise enough hell.

Hey, if you have anything back ordered on Target from the sale the other week take a look at your account. Some of the things I had ordered (Cyberverse Deluxe) had to be manually approved for an extended delay, otherwise they probably would have canceled the order. Speaking of Target, some Earthrise wave 1 stuff is now in stock.

Going off past experience, they will just cancel the pre order, then put up new ones at the corrected price.

For those who haven’t yet purchased Soundblaster, Walmart.com still has him at $22.50 USD. A two-cassette-data disk-drone armor-carrying Voyager for the price of a Deluxe - a win in my book.

Yes, but only to $60, which is weird, still out of stock though.

Amazon has the Generations Power of the Primes Voyager Class Inferno for $11.79.

I'm personally not crazy about this figure, but the price is right!

A lot of people are buying these to convert into Pyro. He's been hovering around $12 on Amazon for a couple months now.

I was looking for something more... rescue-y? Is that even a word? I've looked at similarly-themed combiners from other series for ideas, but no dice, aside from possible KO's. :???:

Marvel UK Inferno was associated with both the Wreckers and the Survivors, so he's not always just a rescue worker. ;)
