Way back at Botcon we had a glimpse of a two pack being released containing the Smash and Change Optimus Prime along with Flip and Change Grimlock from Age of Extinction. This set has finally been sighted at a Kohl's store in Grand Blanc, Michigan by site owner Seibertron's dad Kevin Yzquierdo.

Transformers News: Optimus Prime and Grimlock Quick Change Two Pack Sighted at US Retail

This set is another opportunity to grab these up if you missed these upon their first release, or if you're looking for a fun gift for the younger Transformers fan in your life this holiday. There don't appear to be any deco changes to either toy in this set, at least not to this Seibertronian! You can also order the set online for $44.99 at Kohls.com, however be warned that their sale price is actually higher than the retail price of buying these two separately at many other outlets.

We've got extensive Galleries of both Smash and Change Optimus Prime and Flip and Change Grimlock available to help you find out if these are right for you.

Keep it tuned right here to Seibertron.com for all the latest news, and if you've got a sighting of a new toy yourself, be sure to let us know at sightings@seibertron.com, use our Toy Sightings resource tool, and be sure to post in your local Toy Sightings thread too!

Fxfranz already did a review of this guy a month or 2 ago. Why do you NEVER read my news submissions?

Actually they don't, especially if you have a Kohl's credit card. They always have sales going on and you can also get an additional 15 to 30% off if you use your Kohl's credit card.

That pack was also just spotted yesterday in Canada, don't know if that is news worthy.

What is very itneresting is that in Canada, it's a Walmart exclusive for 25$..canaidian! (that's like 22$ US) And it is thus cheaper than buying them individually.

^ See that's a good deal! Kohl's will probably mark it down to $25 or $30 closer to the Holidays and use the $59.99 regular price as a marketing ploy to go "Look at the great savings on these!"

Not sure if that's legal. If it is, that's quite a shady practice.
This remind me in Canadian Tire, I saw a set of cooking pots at 75% off! From like 500$ to only 150$!!!!!! WOW!!! Turn out that I saw the exact same set at Walmart and the REGULAR price was around 200$. Sure, the one at Canadian Tire was indeed on sale, but you didnt save a gazillion dollars. Next time I see them pulling a bullshit like that, I'm going around stores, I'll take pictures, then I'll complain to our government customers protection agency.

They pull that stunt all the time here, and it's perfectly legal, as long as the original MSRP shown matches. They even do it when a product first lands on the shelves: drop the selling price by a few euros from the MRSP to wet their beaks.

"Sale" indeed... I'm pretty sure it's illegal over here. I heard of a mattress salesman who paid a hefty fine because all of his "sales" were fake.

I remember Target did something like that with the DotM Deluxes. Bumped them up to $30 for about a week, then cut them down to $16... when they were originally $12. This was at the end of the line's run, seemingly a desperate ploy to get rid of that last Bumblebee nobody wanted.

Zellers where selling the first wave of Prime deluxes for 25$ right until the very end when they all closed up to be replaced by Targets. At the final sale, they when down to the regular price. Sale hungry suckers bought them all even though they were now at the REGULAR 16$ price. Sad. >:oP

Also, holy crap, in the Land of the Cheap, Target tried to sell TF deluxes for 30$?! That's stupid.

Ironically, my local Target put their toys on crazy clearance sales all the time. Real sales for some ridiculous savings... especially with our Qu├ębec law when the scanned price don't match the tag! So many free figures and dolls won this way! :DANCE:

Galvatron's original quote was "Power is everything; my defeat is absurd!"

Now it's "Wanna see my cannon?"

Just a couple days ago, we got a Canadian sighting for Age of Extinction deluxe wave 3. Seibertronian Cdavid3 sent us an email saying he spotted the wave at a Target in Fremont, CA. This wave contains Hot Shot, Snarl and Bumblebee. If you have a new toy sighting and want to get the word out to fellow collectors, you can email your new sightings to sightings@seibertron.com or use the Contact Us link at the top of the page.

That wave just started hitting retail again as it got shortchanged when the AoE stuff started coming out.
