This Rescue Bots wave was also spotted at Walmart in Canada. High Tide's wave mate Optimus was available as well. It is a repaint of the cab that was first released with a trailer in the Energize line a couple years back. The price for these up north is $ 29.94 cdn.

So these Rescue Bots can be found all over North America and are probably already at your local Toysrus or Walmart waiting to be bought.

As an added bonus, in that same American Toys R Us described above, there were some G1 Transformers temporary tattoos hiding away in the back:

It's worth noting that TRU has supposedly made their price matching policy more stringent. If you can't add an item to your cart at one of the handful of places they price match, they won't match it. Additionally, they'll only do two price matches of the same item even if the quantity is over two.

I won't go into gory detail about how this made getting those deluxes price matched a major pain, but just be cautious that they've either made their policy more stringent, or alternately, I encountered a bored manager on a slow day that really didn't care much about helping :lol:

Ugh that kid looks so smug.

Probably the type to sign up on Seibertron and try show off and be like "Look dudes I'm a Transformers fan too!" when in reality he knows almost nothing.

When I saw that combaticon limbs at TRU a few weeks ago, I tried to price match. Their response to me: "We can only pricematch if you find the exact same item in a competitors store, take photographic evidence and bring it here. But it must be the same exact toy." so in other words, I would need to find say Swindle at Walmart, not buy him there but take a picture, and go to TRU to buy it for the same price.

My IQ dropped 10 points that night :BOT:

A couple months ago I asked a TRU manager if they did price matching. His response was an incredibly lame attempt at a joke. Something along the lines of "If you find it somewhere else I'd be happy to take more for it!", insinuating that his store's prices were the lowest around. Yeah man, those $20 deluxes are a real steal...

I then looked up the figures on Amazon from my phone and had the cashier ring me up for $14-$15 a piece. And that's the story of how I got the wave of Ark bots at a reasonable price at Toys R Us.
:lol:

So... all of us? I mean, The Transformer is the mustached hero with the red and yellow armor suit, right? ;)

$20 deluxes is why I will NEVER buy TF's at Toys R Us again.

Sometimes the choice is pay $20 for a deluxe at TRU, pay that much or more by the time shipping is added by ordering online, or simply not being able to get a particular figure.

What I find odd about the $20 Deluxe price is that Voyagers are still about $26-27 at TRU, which is only a $2-3 increase versus other retailers. Why, then, are the Deluxes $4-5 more than other stores? The larger increase for a smaller product doesn't make sense to me.

Because, technically, the deluxes' msrp is $18, most stores lower it to compete with each other, tru is doing the exact opposite.

Really? Huh.

So, what about Voyagers? Do the "non-TRU" stores lower their prices, too?

Not really, they're still ~$25-26, not much change there. Not sure who or why they set the msrp so high, considering the repeated use of the deluxes and the general lack of paint apps on them, but if the trend continues on into TR, I'm out :HEADHURTS:

Those haven't here either! Deluxes sell here way better than anything else, so they have a quicker turn around on new waves of that size here due to it.
