You may have heard this one through the grapevine, and it's indeed true as confirmed by several Seibertronians that regional discount retailer Ollie's Bargain Outlet is receiving some 2014 Generations figures, including the previously elusive Arcee and Chromia, as they stock up on toys for Christmas. Reports so far indicate that these run $6.99 plus any applicable sales tax for your state.

While discount retail findings are generally not news-worthy, many collectors had difficulty finding these toys upon release late last year, especially so with Arcee. Now they're available again for those in regions with an Ollie's location, and at a fantastic price too!

DAMMIT! These don't exist in Canada? Could someone grab those two for me? I can pay for them and shipping! Preferably someone who lives somewhere were the shipping won't wreak havoc on the price! XD

You're darn tootin' it was hard to find these figures. Yeesh - I wonder if that means they'll be in Ross or TJ Maxx on the cheap now, because they sure as heck never turned up in walmart or any retail stores in my neck of the woods. I had to wince and pay Amazon prices.

Well, it would have to be Ross or some such place since I've never heard of 'Ollie's Bargain Outlet'.....

Stopped by the Ollie's in Albany, New York. They have the last four waves of thrilling 30 deluxes, something like 15 roadbusters, and a bunch of the subtitle-less 2014 line legends figures, including the newer ones like ultra magnus. Picked up arcee and chromia for myself of course! Couldn't be happier to hear about this today!

Man, I just checked Ollie's store locator. I'll save some of you all the trip.
There are no locations west of the Mississippi River.
Good luck to all you Easterlings. ;)

Edit: and no Illinois or Wisconsin.

BBTS still has them in stock as a pair for $31.99 which would be about walmarts price on current deluxes. Im shocked by the amount of people that would spend half a tank of gas and drive for an hour or more to find them in the wild in some obscure store. I just dont get the logic....

The closest Ollie's to me is 50+ miles away. Grrr.

Still works out cheaper with gas hovering at $2 a gallon ;)

Indeed, I honestly can't believe that the 2 pack or legends arcee(?) are still in stock with all the belly achin' that went on 'round here.

And since I just happen to work 1 mile north of one, I am so, SOOOOO happy that I remained patient and never caved in to inflated online prices! (Though I panicked and spent $50 on ebay for Takara's Arcee, but that's neither here nor there)

And besides, who can stop at just one? This almost-3-decades-overdue toy has a LOT of potential redecos that even the club will never tackle, and AFAIC Hasbro's initial announcement of it was an explicit promise that I'd be able to buy a crapload of them cheap; now, after a year of searching every TJMarshaxx, Tuesday Morning, and Kmart (not fair to lump them in with the other 3, but their Brainstorm got my hopes up) that promise has been fulfilled. What's one more year when I'd already waited 28?

Coincidentally, I'd only ever started going into Ollie's about this time last year. Their selection of boys' toys always kinda' sucked, except for that occasional diamond in the rough, like the Avengers helicarrier for $20 and some Joe: Retaliation
figures I've never seen elsewhere. Their TF selection had been borderline non-existent until they got AofE Power Attackers the same time as Five Below (and here I was shocked when the newest 5B got some Generations AofE deluxes). Until now, I'd honestly bought more girls' toys from Ollies, thanks to their huge stock of the smaller Winx club figures, though only the 6 common ones (hey, with the Jem movie bombin', they might be the closest we ever get to Jem figs scaled to interact with Joes).

My Ollies also had Windblade, Jhiaxus, Armadascream, Rattrap, Tankor, Scoop, Crosscut, and the Minicon trio, for the record.

To all Canadians, we may not have Ollies but this indicates that we may get some of these leftovers coming our way at our own discount outlets like Marshals (Quebec now has one), Winners and Giant Tiger.

hasbros incompetence knows no bounds, instead of shipping these to real outlet stores or putting them up on HTS they send them to some no name discount store that most people dont even have in their state let alone near them. Great job guys you really know how to get products to your customers. Worst part is now that this info is out there all the scalpers are going to be flocking to these places and buy every single one of them, ebays about to get flooded with over priced fembots.

Consider yourself lucky you have them in your country at all.

In Canada, Iwe never saw Arcee, Chromia, and Brainstorm. Blame the curse of being part of the last wave of a line...

Yes, because Hasbro gets to dictate what stores buy which products, and at what quantities. :roll:

This always happens with product slated at the end of a calendar year. Big box stores largely pass or diminish their orders due to saturated shelves, and the product finds its way to whatever discount retailers want it. >:oP

Reminds me of the Great Reveal the Shield Debacle of 2010.

Im not sure I consider driving around looking for plastic toys the same adrenalin rush as facing a lion head on, blowing his brains out, and hanging his head on the wall. :roll:

Kind of reminds me of those people who spend 2 dollars in gas driving to a cheaper gas station where gas is 3 cents cheaper a gallon. And that doesn't even factor in the wear and tear on your vehicle.

When the Hunter's Animalistic Instincs take over, logic get thrown out the window.

We have to satisfy this hunger, no matter what, even if the end result is a loss. Image
