It seems like all Age of Extinction toys will be available at retail in one way or another after all. With Power Battlers Vehicon found at Ross a little while ago, everyone was wondering if TJ Maxx would get these as well and if Junkhead would be available too. Well the answer, thanks to everyone's favourite podcaster Rotorstorm, is YES! She has found Power Battlers Junkheap at the Lansing Mall TJ Maxx in Lansing, MI for 6.99$ US. For those curious, there is a gallery available. And for those who have been waiting for a sighting stateside, well, let the hunting begin! Let your fellow TF fans know if you spot on in your area in the sightings threads.

For some reason I do not see anyone making mass efforts to "hunt" these down.

You would be very mistaken.

Proof:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Claw-Crush-JUNKHEAP-Power-Attackers-Transformers-Age-of-Extinction-Garbage-Truck-/281638112405?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4192f08c95

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Junkheap-Hasbro-Transformers-Age-of-Extinction-TF4-Claw-Crush-Power-Battler-/121614824761?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c50cef539

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Transformers-4-Age-of-Extinction-Power-Battlers-Attacker-JUNKHEAP-Mint-in-Box-/251922327132?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3aa7bda65c



That only proves one thing. That some people are ignorant enough to pay a lot of money for something because they have nothing better to spend their money on. I saw someone on ebay pay $100 for a corn chip they claimed looked like Jesus, so using ebay as "proof" that these are highly sought out is not very credible.

Some people love Jesus that much.

Some people like rare AOE toys that much.

*shrug*

Well, there are a couple factors that add to his desirability. In order of importance:

1) He was promoted by Hasbro as an Earth Day special... which was a year before his eventual release. :oops:

2) He's a unique piece. It's not often we get a garbage truck of all things for an alt mode, in fact, including the Go-Bots and Rescue Bots, we only have 4 of them:

- Gobots Fly Trap
- Animated Wreck-Gar
- Rescue Bots Salvage
- AoE Junkheap

And no, figures that are actually garbage do not count!

3) Because he's a tail-ender he's seen as hard to find, which only adds to the desire to have him sooner than later.

Plus, the Power Battler is the only version of the guy out there, so people look past that. I don't consider that ignorant at all.

I know, to me the Jesus chip was a good comparison so something a lot of people like and have interest in.

Shockblast, you could look at it this way: a bunch of scalpers could now raid the tjmaxx store to sell them on e-bay at those prices. Either way people will still be hunting for them.

Or, you know, they're rare and desirable.

I would buy one for under ten bucks because I collected all the bad guys from AOE. But I wouldnt spend $69.99 on it lol.

I saw one of the reviews, it looks like a solid little figure; it's rare, but I don't even mind the lackluster articulation, the gimmick would make it a nice desk piece (just him chillin' out with some other figure sticking out of his chest-mouth-thing) I agree with X, if I found it for less than $10 I would probably bite.

Me too.

In the meantime, TAV Junkheap do the job.

Haven't seen Junkheap yet, but I saw that Vehicon for $6.99 at a TJMaxx, and passed...




...because I already got two for $5.00 each!

That's right, like the PRID Vehicon before him in that summer of love 3 years ago, the Fast Action Bastar-*ahem" Power Battler Vehicon's case has appeared at 5-Below!!! Said case seems to include Drift, Op, and Cannon-Bee, possibly Snarl (I've been having so much luck finding AofE TFs at blowout stores that I don't remember which were at 5B and which were TJMarshaxx).

Though as much as I loved AofE, I'll probably keep my army building below a dozen this time around. How many of those cars did Cemetery wind have at the farm?

I know this shouldn't get my hopes up that any Generations figures will show at the Marsh, but if Arcee and Chromia are on the way, the time should be soon...

Never stop canvassing!

I'd definitely bite on that. In fact, some stores here have gotten hold of overstock up to the wave with Optimus Prime, Lockdown, Galvatron and most of the Dinobots, down to €6.00 at best. Just before the wave with Vehicon and Junkheap. Here's hoping...

Just throwing it out there that I'm selling my Junkheap. It's more than TJMax but less than the eBay scalpers.

K, I'm not exactly sure what your "getting" at, but Chuck hooked me up with the Platinum triple changers and it was a real square deal. No funny biz what so ever. Rather friendly exchange as a matter of fact.

Hi I am new to this forum. Correct me if I am spamming by putting questions in wrong topics. I do not know what to buy. I like garbage truck transformers. Should I buy transformers animated wreck gar or transformers age of extinction junkheap? Can they store any items in their garbage truck beds? Can I see a picture of transformers age of extinction junkheap from behind?
Here are links of the transformers below. I do not mean to copyright I do not own these pictures or links. Please correct me if I am doing anything illegal or if I am infringing on copyright.

thank you very much

Neither can fit stuff in their trailers. And between the two, Wreck Gar is better. The age of extinction one is gimmicky and not meant to be a poseable toy for collectors. It's small and fun but not the best garbage truck transformer. It is also very hard to find. Stick with Wreck gar.
