Many of you might recall that in Japan's last Transformers cartoon toy line, some of their releases eventually became quite discounted on Amazon (like Transformers Go Budora). Well this seems to be starting for their Transformers Adventure line. As of right now two fo their exclusivie rereleases, Transformers Adventures TAV 09 Swoop and TAV10 Snarl, are being sold by Japanese compaies through Amazon at the price of deluxe toys at retail (or lower). The shipping is also free and there are no taxes on importing in the US. So this is a very good deal for anyone who wanted these molds or these redecos.

Many other TAV toys are currently being sold at reasonable prices (lower than stateside importers) with free shipping such as Thunderhoof, Sharpnel, Steeljaw and Roadblock. While prices are pretty much the same you'd pay if you found these toys at retail in Japan, importing them for free means you can get these same prices without getting off your couch. The free shipping seems to only be for US adresses though.

Indeed, Amazon is a great place to pick up Takara figures. The TAV line has had some good deals on and off for some time now. I picked up Road Block, Frumbles, Swoop and Bloody Knockout at great prices just recently all with free shipping.

The legend series are on the daily stalk right now as well. The prices are still high, but some are starting to drop.

I'm still holding out for Bakudora myself.

This is the best way to see what figures are more popular. It seems to be that the toys that dont appear on the show get the bigger discount.

HTS has a price drop on most of the Generations line? The only exceptions are the CW boxed sets, CW Blades, and those items no longer in stock. It looks to be about 20%, but even the Leaders are discounted so people can now get CW Ultra Magnus for $36 American. You can pretty much tell which ones are sold out now because they are still at regular price like Shockwave, First Aid, and Air Raid.

Fellow Seibertronians Depthcharge27 and Mr Skram have dropped us a line to let us know of the latest HasbroToyShop sale, just in time for summer! As you might guess, the Summer Sale does not cover all Transformers items, but a fair few Combiner Wars figure are - and most notably, the Leader Class figures are down to $34.99 each. If you're still missing something, or a looking to double dip before Titans Return, now may be your moment.

I sent this info to Seibertron.com over a week ago. Since it was never posted I thought that it wasn't important. At least someone received credit for it.

Haha, I had not realized that the only toy from a few years ago to still be available on amiami is Tankor. I guess no one wants that toy to the point that they are selling him at more than half off:

HA, I spotted Tankor and Rattrap at a Walmart in the town I'm working at this week.

I considered picking Tankor up, but passed.

If you can get him for less than 10$ I say why not.

No they wanted full price for him and he wasn't Sky Lynx, so I kept walking. I was making groceries that night.

I don't now if anyone has checked out HLJ's Summer Sale but they have some awesome deals on a lot of stuff including TFs, most notably-
TAV Megatronus, Fracture, and Quillfire for about $12
Masterpiece Road Rage for about $36 (not the lowest but still pretty good)
UW Menasor for around $77
Masterpiece Optimus for $123
UW Devastator for $129
There are a lot more too but those are some of the big ones. All of these prices are in USD by the way.
