On the fence about Power Core Combiners? Target is offering a sale on the 2-Pack price point this week, bringing the price down to a mere $7. If you haven't decided to give the science and madness a shot, now is the time! You may even find the sublime Wave 2 Leadfoot, Sledge, and Icepick.

I'd recommend Leadfoot. He's the best PCC I've seen.

Not to hijack this thread.

The PCC 5 pack are going for $15. Not sure if it has been mentioned. In case anyone is interested.

Combaticons

Aerialbots

I noticed only one set of Double Clutch w/ Rallybots and one set of Mudslinger with Destructicons during my visit to a local Target. The rest are Aerialbots and Combaticons.

Ooh, I'll buy Leadfoot at that price. I have the others already.

I love Huffer's pose in that ad! Autobots On Ice!

Hmm... might have to pick some up,

in other news, I lulzed at how horribly mistransformed the two in the ad are.

A nice deal, but I think they're only doing it to get rid of all those Huffers and Searchlights they overstocked on. Don't think for a second that they'll put wave 2 on the shelves while this sale is in effect. I have access to five Targets locally and never found anything beyond wave one at any of them. I ended up purchasing all my wave 2 sets at Meijers and Y'All-Marts.

I got myself all of the Wave 1 figures recently and I really like them all. One of the only problems was the little armoured car drone with Bombshock that kept coming off the peg, but that was easily remedied by a bit of superglue (since it was the drone with the problem, I put just a bit of glue where it should hold the peg in the inside of the car, and it's now tight enough to stay solidly on). If you're skeptical about these guys I would urge you to pick up at least one of them just to see if you like them. My personal favourite of wave 1 (of the 2-packs) is Smolder, who looks good and comes with a really cool mini-con. At this price, even if you end up not liking them, it would not be a big deal. Who knows though, you may even become a fan of PCCs if you give them a chance.

If you do see the Wave 2 2-packs though, they're even better than wave 1 so you may be better off getting them. And if you do end up missing wave 1, it isn't that big a deal, since, if it ever gets released, wave 3 (all repaints of wave 1) will be around soon.

Ummm...is Huffer running up to kick Caliburst for a field goal?

Yeah, I like how the photographers put his combined-head up. Reminds me of an ad in the G2 days that had blue Silverbolt and yellow Onslaught with Superion and Bruticus heads and all the other gestalt kibble attached, but none of their minions because only the leaders were on sale, and someone missed the point. I can't remember what store; wish I'd saved it.

Targets are normally the first to get TFs anywhere near Detroit, but I too have only seen the Rallybots and Destrons at Smiley-Mart, and the defensive ring of Meijers-es that had been keeping them out...until a virus began killing all of our good malls and the parasitic Walton-virus began taking root on their carcasses. *sniff* I think Wonderland mall was where I first saw TFTM too.

Yeah, I know Walmart isn't technically more evil than any other chain store, if you're non-union. I just don't like them.

But keep your optics peeled this week; someone at Target could easily slip up and put out wave 2 by Saturday.

Dang it!

I just paid full price to replace my broken Smolder this afternoon.

Wow this is great! I want the refreshed version of Huffer, and I hope I can get my first five pack when the go on sale.
Also, if you're not sure whether you want a PCC or not, go ahead and get yourself a two-pack. You won't regret it. Much better than getting a single scout figure in my opinion. The scouts just don't appeal to me.

Ive had Leadfoot, icepick and sledge for a few months now..Found at a wal mart when the pcc's first came out, or at least when they got them..Took a bit of hustlin since they weren't in the comp yet but they let em go.. I have to say leadfoot is my fav followed by sledge..I wish they would make some deluxe versions of some of these guys, the size tends not to do them justice..

I found that Huffer fits in nicely with my Classics/Universe collection, especially being scout size; being a small figure like G1. So definately recommend to add him to your Classics set, just paint that stupid neon blue black, & I stuffed Caliburst away in my weapons/accessories box.

Even if they were giving it away, I would return it and exchange it for something else.

5-packs are on sale for $15 at Target and Walmart as well. (at least at mine)

I'm really liking these. I liked the commander + minicon figs, but I finally bought a couple of the 5 packs, since they were on sale, and they are FUN.

My son and I rip them apart and recreate then in different configurations.

I have not had this much fun with any TFs in a while.

The yellow hood is the new variant. We assume that the miscolored solid orange was a design flaw that was soon fixed. So make sure you look at Huffer's back to make sure it is the version you want before you buy.
