Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Emotim, we have word that there are some pretty good deals going on right now over at Entertainment Earth! While there aren't many deals, there are a few that you might take interest in.

The first potential deal would be Cyberverse wave 2 Warriors. Entertainment Earth currently has the whole case for Wave 2 available at $87.99, 20% off their retail price. The case includes 3 Optimus Primes, 2 Megatrons, 2 Windblades, and 1 Acid Storm. This figures would normally retail around $15 a piece, or $120 for the whole case.

Up next, we have the Power of the Primes Rodimus Unicronus, which has been dropped from $44.99 to $26.99, a 40% savings on the figure. This guy was the black and purple repaint of the Power of the Primes Rodimus Prime figure from 2018.

And lastly, we have the Studio Series Retro Pop Volume 2, which is the 2nd golden repaint of a Studio Series Bumblebee figure, in this case the VW Bug one, that comes with some Dinocassettes. The figure is marked at $42.99, a 28% savings from its $59.99 price point.

Check out the deals below, and let us know if you pick one of these up over in our Toy Haul Thread!

Quick PSA for those affected (including me). I received this from BBTS:

BBTS wrote:Last June the Supreme Court ruled that states can charge sales tax on internet purchases. Many states already have laws in effect or laws that will be going into effect soon. We anticipate most states will have sales tax laws in place by the end of the year. States write their own tax laws so each state can be different, but we expect the majority of internet retailers will have to collect sales tax in most states. We are required to abide by these laws.

On April 1st, we will begin charging sales tax in the following states:

California
Colorado
Minnesota

All shipments going to these states will be subject to sales tax. You are receiving this notice because you currently have open pre-orders and/or items in your Pile of Loot that will be affected based on the Preferred Address in your account. You will be charged tax on: pre-orders that arrive and are processed, any items in your Pile of Loot that are released for shipment, and all new orders.

Thank you for your continued support and business.

I got this from them back in January, as Nebraska was one of the first 3 states to jump on writing their law.

Just FYI, on P.o.L. orders they don't charge you tax until you/they ship, so anticipate two charges. One at time of purchase for item/items without tax, and another at shipment with tax on the order plus the shipping cost.

The funny thing is, I've ordered several things from Amazon, TFs and not. Some have charged tax and some haven't. Hope that doesn't bite me in the butt somehow down the road.

How dos the US tax law work on books? In Canada, they are a major exception to everything. Only federal tax can be charged for books, not provincial/state.

We're supposed to pay sales tax on everything, but varies from state to state. I'm only vaguely familiar with Louisiana though, but most major websites now collect sales tax on all physical and digital goods in Louisiana. BBTS doesn't... yet.

We also have different/no tax on food. In some places I go I'll see several different taxes on a receipt. The easy version is there is a reduced food tax and then the full tax on non food. Some cities charge a tax as well. Some states charge no food tax.

I just found out recently (because they are trying to change the law) that in Louisiana the parishes (counties for the other 49 states) collect the tax. This is why our state has a hard time with tax and internet sales. I'm not sure of the details, but they want to change that so it's easier to get the state taxes from online sales. The parishes are fighting this because they use that money for their budget before giving the state the collected tax.

EDIT: Oh if I remember correctly (in Louisiana) we are supposed to report tax we didn't pay on our tax return. But I didn't buy anything online that wasn't taxed ;)

Your a money guy, take a look at this - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sales_tax ... ted_States

TL;DR - its a mess in the states.

In summary, sales tax is a function of the states. So there are basically 50 different ways that works. But rates differ even within states as counties and cities can charge a different rate.

Bottom line, pretty soon everyone will be paying sales tax on all Internet sales from major retailers. BBTS is probably big enough that it has to start charging tax and not deal with that headache. But small-time eBay and Amazon 3rd party sellers can probably get away without charging tax in some form or fashion.

In my state we are supposed to report any unpaid online tax on our tax return.

Anyway, just saw this thread: bigbadtoystore-to-begin-collecting-sales-tax-in-select-states-p2016059.php#p2015998

And to keep the mods at bay ;)

Yeah, people tend toforget that we are a federation of several separate states and commonwealths, with our own laws and regulations. The only things distinguishing us from Europe is a Central Federal Government and an enduring love for DEMOCRACY AND PATRIOTISM!!! :-D

Thanks to a barrage of notifications from Seibertron members, we have word that Target is offering a ton of potential discounts on Transformers figures this week!

The most accessible sale this week is the offer of $10 off an order of $50 or more, and $25 off an order of $100 or more, meaning you can save 20-25% off your Transformers order this week. Friend of the site DecepticonFinishline has also let us know that this offer is available for some pre-orders, which include the Siege Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime, Thundercracker, Springer, and the Studio Series KSI Boss.

We also have word that, on top of these offers, there is a 25% off coupon through the Target Cartwheel app on all Transformers this week. And there is also your Target RedCard, which you have to apply for since it's a credit card, that offers an additional 5% off. If you have all 3, or even just one of these options available, take advantage of it and go get yourself some really nicely priced figures!

Also of note, thanks to Seibertronian xRotorstormx, we have news that Meijer is currently running a Buy one Get one 50% off on Transformers right now, so if you have one in your area, go out and check out the potential BOGO's!

Let us know what you end up purchasing and what kind of deals you end up getting below!

I downloaded the Target Cartwheel app and signed up, but I can't find the 25% of Transformers coupon anywhere in the app. I'm a total Cartwheel noob, so any help is much appreciated!

There should be a banner on the front page that says cartwheel offers, go thru that and go to the toys section icon, go thru that, select the tf coupon. Then along the bottom, go to the wallet area and it should have a barcode that your coupon is tied to

Just a heads up that cartwheel only works on purchases you buy in store or for target.com orders available for store pickup. So for example, the siege preorders will not work with the 25% off since they are shipping only.

However, the save $10 or save $25 will work fine for the preorders.

Just to do some math for peoplle if you buy one leader class figure at $50 and use the $10 off coupon AND then the cartwheel you'll be paying $30 for a leader which is literally 40% off

It has to be $50 - so 1 leader would not qualify since its $49.99.

Sounds like a perfectly good excuse to get a battlemaster for the battle effects ;)
