Now this price may not surprise many people, seeing as how we have had sightings of Trypticon at Ollies for as low as $12 in the past month or 2, but this is the first time it is being advertised, and it must be a big deal if it made Ollies catalog. The original price for this figure was $149.99 (instead of the advertised $139.99, which was a price found on later, price lowered units), so this is a $100 savings if you can find the figure! The sale is listed as officially starting tomorrow.
Ready to hunt down the giant Decepticon kaiju? Good luck hunting, and let us know if you find 1 or many more in the comments section below as well as in our Toy Haul Thread!

Yeah, I don't have a Ross in the state, but I've seen a few people post about this in the forums. I guess I just assumed they'd already been in the news.
Don't bother checking TJMaxx, they're full priced there.
I'm surprised to hear that. I don't think I've ever seen "full priced" Transformers at Marshall's or TJ Maxx before.
They botched the original price, saying it was $20-something so they only marked it down to $16.99 or so. I had posted a photo of the price tag, but can't find it, it's on the forum somewhere. Others have found the same thing so it's a chain-wide issue.
Went back Wednesday to get another shot of the price tag on Triggerhappy showing $16.99 based on an original $22! Still a dollar cheaper than Walgreens...
They also had a random Voyager Optimus Prime in a mangled box for an excellent $12.99. Sure, that makes sense. Passed since I already have two.

That just occurred to me last night. Perhaps the reason why these have sold so inexpensively is that these are the initial "bad batch" (Hip spring too big, warped green plastic door etc...), has anyone opened and played with any of these (even the previous $20 ones), to confirm? For what its worth, My Trypticon was purchased at a local TRU back in September (never saw it on the shelf, just happened to look behind the customer service desk and had to swindle it from the clerk), and it has no problems. So I don't think any of us knows the timeframe of when the fix exactly occurred, or how many defective ones were manufactured.

Please note that some batches appear both in the good and issues list, meaning there is no convenient solution. These are marked with an asterisk. There's more grey than black/white here, unfortunately. Please note, this list is not exhaustive, only what I have been able to compile from the contributed batch numbers.

72421 (some with issues)
Further contributions are most welcome!
All the best

So far? Yes he is. I’m still kicking around getting the Toyhax Reprolabels set for him, which is currently 40% off. I don’t think the included labels do enough!What's Crackin'? wrote:My brother REALLY wanted this guy, so maybe I'll get it for him for his birthday. Is it a good figure though?

Yeah, he's pretty good! It's possible he'll have some problems with the hips - earlier production runs needed slight modification or they'd literally tear themselves apart - but if you think that slight disassembly and squeezing of springs (to weaken them a bit) is doable, he's absolutely worth this price.
If you do go for it, check around! We have a couple articles on this very site that run through various methods of preemptively fixing the toy's problems. (The very first guide was actually mine, but it involved actually cutting things up, which didn't end up being necessary in the end )

I do! That's the show-accurate version of Chief Burns (with the building and Mini-Con included as bonuses ) that I missed out on.WreckerJack wrote:Was killing time at Ross and I found this. Not that anyone buys these anyways
