    I just found the 25th Anniversary Optimus Prime $48.98 at Target on clearance. There were 4 of them left, but the boxes were beat to hell. I just picked the best looking one. I plan on opening it anyways.

    If anyone has found this for cheaper than that please post it here.

    Hmm,$50 is better than the original $70 price tag,I'm gonna see if I can wait it out till he's at least $40 or $30.

    I found no less than a dozen last night for that price. One would have come home with me if it was $38.98 and I would have groused that I spend 8 bucks too much. Got two G1 primes already.

    I think most everyone is thinking that at this point.

    If it dropped to even $20,I'd buy a couple of them if I could.

    If you guys have a Target that has over a dozen of them.... word of advice , keep checking your Target until you see it go down in clearance .... they should be at 30% off right now ....give it another week or two and it'll go down to 50% off.... then go in for the kill and buy it ...... sometimes you my be lucky and could find them for 75% off, but very rarely ...alot of times guys would come in and swipe them up at 50% off.

    both targets in my area each have at least a dozen, i'll wait to thirty, and if they're sold out...no biggie. i had him when i was a kid, so he is not a must have for me.

    I'll wait for a month or two. Target may be clearancing (if this is real) them out, but Toys R' Us and Wal-Mart's aren't going anywhere. So someday, if I can't pick up a Optimus around $30 or lower at Target, I'll have to buy it somewhere else when it happens at that store.
