Just when it was looking like T.J.Maxx wasn't going to have any decent Transformers deals this holiday season, this happened. While out Christmas shopping (yes, I'm a last minute shopper) I was surprised to find a legit Transformers section at a local T.J.Maxx. And it's not just old wave 1 overstock, but some pretty recent releases including Power of the Spark Ultimate Class Grimlock for only $20 (which our own william-james88 declared the best Transformer gift for young fans). Also of note is Spark Armor Elite Class Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee for $20 each, and Warrior Class figures for only $4.99! As you can see from the photos below they also had a nice selection of Scouts and 1 Step Changers which I unfortunately didn't catch the price on. Plus there was a selection of Bumblebee Movie Energon Igniters Power Plus Series figures such as Bumblebee(s), Shatter, and Soundwave for $10.

And yet of all the times I've been to TJ Maxx, I have never seen a single Transformers related item.

That's how it had been for me (aside from some of those super cheap oversized Bumblebee figures), and then this happened out of no where. Not much I'm interested in, but neat to see so much stuff in stock.

Amazon has a bunch of Studio Series figures on sale as a part of their deal of the day

The liquidator stores are surprisingly well stocked this year. Marshall's, Ross, TJMaxx... even Kohl's has some Cyberverse. Ross is one up tho for having Bumblebee movie toys as well as PotP Legends.

Just scored the KSI Bot for that price; not as interested in the character but more in the Headmaster cross functionality.

Between a Ross and Bealls Outlet next to each other I found ultra class Shockwave, Starscream, Bumblebee, Grimlock and Alpha Trion. I already had Shockwave and didn't want SS or BB so I got Grimlock (better than I expected) and Alpha Trion (at least he looks cool). Didn't find Slipstream though but Amazon had her cheap the other day and picked her up then. I also found a bunch of one step figures from the BB movie. The Tuesday Morning next to them had nothing unfortunately. Usually they're a place that has some good finds from time to time but nothing good this time. I didn't try the TJMaxx that's in that area as it's across the road and the traffic light between the two shopping centers is really annoying. The parking lot sucks to drive though as well. So it's usually not worth it for me to bother with that particular TJMaxx.

How is it surprising that the absolute crappiest toys end up at the discount stores? You don't see any of the good stuff showing up there like Generations or Studio Series. Just the garbage no sane person would waste their money on.

I've seen Combiner Wars Voyagers, TLK Premier Editions, Amazon exclusives, TR Deluxes and now PotP Legends at Ross alone, not to mention Trypticon has popped up at some. The SS Bumblebee Then and Now 2-pack and on a lesser note, Power Rangers Movie Zords were found at Burlington Coat Factory for dirt cheap, so they do get good stuff now and again >:oP

It's much less a question of what's good or bad, but rather what remains unsold vs. what's actually produced. At the moment, Siege Sixgun and Shockwave are shelfwarming being re-releases in later waves, and Walmart's Bluestreak isn't exactly moving in my area either, so expect those to hit clearance or otherwise pop up in those stores in a few months.

Meanwhile the 35th line didn't show up at all at my local Walmarts. No display and nothing on the shelves. Glad I got mine off the website.

First off there's the whole "eye of the beholder" thing, this line does have its fans and even non fans like myself have found a few figures worth owning. But it's really only surprising because it's rare to see anything at T.J.Maxx in these numbers, let alone Transformers. At best they might stock a case or two of Voyagers or some random Deluxes, but this is stock on par with Walmart or Target, it's practically unheard of for them.

Both Walmart and Target have heavily scaled back the amount if Transformer merchandise they carry. I'm guessing discount stores/chains getting large shipments us going to ne common for awhile.

Why is that, do we know?

It's almost impossible to buy Siege figures in UK stores, as an aside. If you aren't there in the initial week you'll never know when or where stock will turn up.

Cyberverse of every class is staggeringly overpriced here too. So loads of those are now showing up in discount stores, still wildly overpriced. And still shelf warming! There's also loads of PotP and TR figures, but all the ones you'd expect as the fans weren't impressed.

After that it's all the leftover nasty figures covering the last two movies. Again, often still overpriced.

G1 Soundwave and his cassettes have started to hit clearance prices. Happy hunting.

Great news to anyone who held off, the Walmart exclusive reissue of Soundwave has been priced for clearanced at some Walmarts. The sighting below comes from our friend Ironhidensh who is in Indiana. Clearance is at the store level and not nation wide so it could be that your Walmart keeps the same price or is already sold out of Soundwave. The clearance price here is $30. The cassette packs are also being clearanced. Their price is $11. That's 40-45% off the original prices.

If you find them at those prices in your area, please let other fans know in our boards right here.

I find this odd. Any time Soundwave or the cassettes showed up at my local Walmart, they wouldn't last a week. I guess there were gluts in other parts of the country.

The reduced Frenzy/Laserbeak pack torments me.

My area did get a pretty good supply in eventually, but they did all sell out

The cassettes were 20?!? My local Walmart just recently stocked them for 600MXN, which translate to ~30! :BANG_HEAD:

This is most likely due to Astrotrain starting to hit shelves, which was just reported elsewhere. Brace yourselves: it's 50 bucks too! I can't wait for the arguements over its value to ensue.

Glad I read this before leaving the house tonight. Managed to snag all three for these prices. Got the last Soundwave, he'll be going on the shelf (next to the TRU double chest version), but the tapes are staying on the cards since I already have all of these a few times over.
