Guess what!? Transformers G1 Vintage Hot Rod has been discounted even further on Walmart.com! He's now going for $12.97 at Walmart.com! You don't have to pay for shipping either if you choose the "Pick Up In Store" option at checkout. I got my G1 Hot Rod yesterday, but paid $14.97. I love him. He's a great value at that price, but an absolute STEAL at $12.97, honestly. You can order Hot Rod by clicking on any of the images below.

I went to the store looking for BotBots and they price-matched Hot Rod without a fuss.

Fellow Seibertronians! Are you thinking Transformers? Are you thinking Studio Series? Are you thinking discounts!? Then you should DEFINITATELY be thinking GEEK!

According to our own Megatronus (of Twincast fame!), it looks like some ThinkGeek stores are discounting their wave 1 and 2 Voyager and Deluxe Class Studio Series Decepticons. They were marked down to $16.97 and 25.97, respectively, and with the additional 50% off clearance items. The regular MSRP for Studio Series Deluxes is $19.99 USD and for Voyagers $29.99 USD. Megatronus was able to purchase deluxe Crowbar (wave 1) for all of $8.49, and voyagers Starscream (wave 1), Brawl (wave 2), and Megatron (wave 2) for $12.99 each! Keep in mind that Deluxe wave 1 also includes Stinger and Deluxe wave 2 also includes Lockdown.

Megatronus asked if GameStop was having a similar promotion, since GameStop owns Thinkgeek, but the employees drew a distinction between the two retailers when it comes to these kinds of clearance sales.

Have you been waiting to push the button on the Studio Series line? Will this deep discount from Think Geek be enough for you to make a purchase? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all the latest news on everything Transformers!

This might be old news now, but the sale of Hot Rod can be used in store, but, you have to have the page of walmart.com up on your phone (or whatever device you use) so that the cashier can see it. It took a manager to confirm it was the same item, but they did honor the walmart.com price of $12.97 in store.

I went to my local thinkgeek and no luck. They were on clearance but no 50 percent off sale.

I did the same thing, Fires. To much chagrin.

I just went through this too. Apparently Walmart is only price matching their own website. It still took many minutes before the sales associate I was working with confirmed they are the same item... :roll:

Spare yourselves the hassle of employees who aren't in the know. Just order Hot Rod directly from Walmart.com, choose "Pick-Up in Store" instead of shipping, choose a store in your area (trust me, they'll have Roddy in stock), wait for the "ready for pick-up" notice in your email, then go to the store's pick-up lounge and sign in to the kiosk. It'll save you a LOT of time and patience, believe me. :)

Right. I was just taking advantage of an opportunity of passing by. I hadn't been sure I was going to buy one. (I have a G1 Hot Rod.) Part of it was the price, part of it was getting one in my hand at the store. I thought it would be no big deal to price match.

I guess Walmart has been dealing with a lot of price abuse...

Or the employees are just stupid.

I mean, Wal-Mart doesn’t exactly hire the cream of the crop.

15% off anything but "tech". So all transformers are 15% off. So HTS ebay discount would stack with this disount. Max is $75.
