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.

In other words, they should start showing up on ebay soon.

Ohio / Michigan nerds, Meijer has the Botbots Arcade Renegades packs on sale for $12. I grabbed the last #6 at the nearest store, but a more enterprising reseller could still get a full set across a couple packs and unload the extras for a profit.

Works in Illinois and Indiana too. If anyone wants to try this route for a complete set and number 6 isn't there, you will want to pair up sets 1 and 2, or 3 and 4.

Thanks for this, I'm keeping my eye on Galactic Man Shockwave. I passed at full price, but if he drops low enough I mike bite.

I find it amusing that so many 3rd party sellers are tying to sell the Generations Selects line that Amazon themselves aren't carrying. Pretty much all of them would run you more than ordering from Pulse (assuming you can get free shipping), except for Galactic Man, he's at about $35 shipped from the lowest option.

Still not low enough for me to bite, but getting close.

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian o. supreme, we have word that Amazon.com is running some pretty good figures up for discounted prices, among which are several of the Amazon exclusive figure sets.

Up first, we have the Fan Vote 3-pack, which was originally priced at $69.99. The figure set is exclusive to Amazon, and is now priced at $50.41, a nearly 30% savings from the original price. The set contains the Holo-Mirage, Decepticon Impactor (with IDW head), and powerdasher Aragon.

Up next, we have the Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce, which was originally $49.99. This Amazon exclusive is also discounted, down to $35.35, an approximately 30% savings.

And finally, under the generic Siege search, we have several discounted figures, which include an Impactor for $13.50, a $15 Sixgun, and $27 Galactic Man Shockwave, among others.

check out the deals, and let us know if you spot any more great deals or if you pick up any of these figures below!

FYI - The cheapest Galactic Man Shockwave option for $27 also has $9 for shipping since it is from a 3rd party seller. Still the cheapest option I've seen yet.

Siege has been amazing... But that does not extend to Mirage IMHO

This is awesome. $50 is still more than I want to pay for the group, but it certainly does make the Impactor/Mirage set more appealing.

And... done! I've just ordered them.

Thanks for the heads up!

Picked up an Impactor. Wasn't going to get him at full price since I have the 3-pack version. Had considered getting him while he was $15 on Amazon, but for $13.50 he was an instant buy. Now just waiting for the last Deluxe wave to drop in price. I'm really surprised Barricade has been selling so well, I was sure he was going to be a shelf warmer but he's selling out on Amazon and I rarely see him in stores. Guess I'll be paying full price for him.

This may interest some; the Cyberverse Alpha Trion is $14.95 on Walmart.com. It's a rollback price for a pretty neat figure. Here's the link:
