Thanks to a tweet from @Evochanger on Twitter, we have word that the Transformers: The Last Knight Tiny Turbo Changers exclusive 3-pack is showing up at Argos for a mere £2.50!

For those who might not remember, this 3-pack was a Target exclusive in the US, and it is the only Tiny Turbo Changer figure of Steelbane, one of the knights of Cybertron who got an individual retail toy in the same movie line as well. Steelbane comes packaged with Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, with some interesting red details splattered all over them that are compatible with black lights, such as can be found on the giant Turbo Changer Dragonstorm figure.

For those in the UK looking for this set, head on over to your local Argos, and let us know if you discover this little 3-pack and what you think of it in the comments section below!

Hm i can't see it on the Argos website at all and i would like to check there before setting out on bus ride. This is the pack where they actually have lil weapons right? Cos more tiny guns and swords and stuff are useful even for just adding to Legion-style figures. :)

If you don’t have this one yet, head to BBTS for a really great bargain....


Probably not the case, but I wonder if BBTS had a buyer go out to Ollies and get some of these in bulk just to turn a profit??

Can you blame them? Or they bought from any of the several salvage suppliers. Selling things for profit is kinda their schtick.

Indeed, it should be the mantra of any business who wants to be successful...

However, in this case, I think it is not likely. BBTS is not far from me, located in Western Wisconsin, as far as I remember. I believe that is an awful long away from the nearest Ollies.

Interesting, everyone is entitled to their point of view of course. But (for the sake of argument) "Toy store X" bought 30 Trypticons from Ollies for $30, and turn around and sold them for $60, that's "good business", but if I did that personally, it would be called scalping...??

I was going to insert a cheeky response here, but nothing felt right in this format. Just assume I was ribbing you a bit. ;)

Without speaking for others, I wonder if the case has more to do with availability of things that are sold online for much more than the MSRP. For instance, say there was a limited store exclusive (Wreck Gar) that was just not found in many places because someone (or more than one) bought them outright at $18. Then, a bunch showed up on eBay for $50. I'd qualify that as scalping.

In this case, I think Tryppie has been available for some time at both MSRP and on sale. I think the collectors that may decry scalpers have had ample time to get him. So, I think this is a different case.

Personally, I struggle with the wait-and-see-if-goes-on-sale versus I-need-this-and-don't-want-to-miss-out. I mostly fall in the latter and end up paying slightly more than MSRP to get the figures I want online. (But, it is cool for army building, or the eventual customs I may someday do, to find the deals in this thread...)

I think we are looking at the causality all wrong. BBTS has other shit to do then drive miles to get some tryticons, especially when its not sure they will get some. Instead what makes way more sense is that this is the stock they are still stuck with from last year and now that fans can get tryptions for so cheap, this is the price that they evaluate their leftoever stock to be worth.

Well I got the bus to the nearest Argos and they didn't have that Tiny Turbo changer pack or even knew what i was talking about when asking about it. Cheapest Transformers item they had was TLK Deluxe Sqweeks for £9.99 and i got that figure when it first came out so I came home empty handed. Oh well. Them's the chips.

Depending on if it doesn't sell out immediately, how long should the BBTS sale on Trypticon last? I'd like to wait for my next week's paycheck before going all in on finally getting one and at such a good deal too.

HTS' ebay store appears to have a blanket 20% off everything. Some ebayers may have also received an eBay Bucks deal today that grants 10% bucks on gift items like today.

Of note, Seibertron's own Megatronus told us that he got Predaking for 20% off, and he recieved an additional $12.80 back due to the eBay bucks deal.

Ollies, that bargain store that has become a hot spot for hard to find Transformers such as Titans Return Wave 5 deluxes, and a big place for Titan Trypticon for insanely low prices, has published their Black Friday advertisement, and that ad includes The Last Knight Cogman for $5.99 as part of its headline deals! Cogman was very hard to find last year when he was released, with very few sightings of the figure anywhere in the world. And now, he's everywhere, on the eve of his new Studio Series repaint as well.

Check out the advertisement below, and get ready to go hunting for Cogmans!

Found one at Ross a few months ago for $7.99, so this doesn't irk me much at all. Ollie's seems to be mostly in the Midwest and East Coast, no? Those of us in the West are kind of screwed with these deals otherwise.

Hey folks, went looking in my local ollie's for Cogmen, just in case they had some out early. Not much besides a couple overlords and alt-modes boxes...

But I did find Legends Class Cosmos from Titans Return. I'm not sure if this has already been reported but it was news to me. Didn't see Seaspray, but I'd have to assume they shipped together. They didn't have a sticker on Cosmos so I couldn't buy one. An employee guessed it would be $4.99.

There's a deal right now with Samsung Pay. They're offering 30% cash back on toy purchases from Walmart. So unfortunately it's not an instant savings. As with other CB sites, it takes time to process. But 30% is nice. So I pulled the trigger on Predaking. $150 after tax but with $41 in cash back.

Wow...how is there 5 Home Alone films? I only ever saw the first 2. I knew of a 3rd, but since it wasn't MaCully Culkin, I never bothered with it.

Still not driving nearly 2000 miles to Alabama (my nearest Ollies :lol: ). The idea of a TR compatible Cogman is really appealing, I just wonder if the Studio Series release head will alto be TR size... :-? .

O, I'm pretty sure the SS Cogman is a straight up re-release with a nicer paint job. The head should be the same. ;)^

Yerp and I prefer the SS deco and hopefully ease of finding.

The nearest Ollie's to me is about one and a half hours away. Not a bad drive, but what I spend in gas I could put on an objectively nicer figure.

^ Good to know, thanks both. I'm sure the SS line was in the planning stages for a while, but would some fans dare to think that basically Movie 5 figures were a *Proto* SS Line? Maybe not quite the complexity, but still leaning more towards that direction? I mean I know part of the reason Movie 5 characters have been so scarce in SS up until now is because we basically just had them, but I guess another reason is that they wouldn't be much different.
