    stopped in my local marc's store today and found 2 steamhammer/constructicons sets, a rts turbo tracks, and, strangely enough, a 2006-dated star wars imperial shuttle/emporer tf. black package, with pilot and spinner-disc. $7, and 5 years old?

    i know marc's gets a lot of odds and ends, and is an ohio chain, but is anyone else finding stuff that old at retail?

    I found a Cybertron Red Scrap metal a few months back at a TJMaxx for $3.50. When it comes to discount stores, you never know what you're going to find.

    I found about five or six TFA Swindles in the Big W near my work. Big W was still selling them for about $25.

    I think it was 2008 when I saw Armada Hot Shot still at retail in a walmart.
    Wasn't the Universe version either, the actual Armada packaging and everything.

    Hot Shot's so retarded that he doesn't know when to get out of retail shelves.

    ROTF Leader Prime: First one on the shelves, I hope I will be taken home soon! Wait, who the Hell are you?

    Hot Shot: JaAm?

    Leader Prime: Get the Hell away from me...

    Myer near me still have one Voyager Animated Prime, Bulkhead and Starscream. Not bad, but way overpriced.

    To the OP: what part of OH are you in? I'm in the Toledo area, never heard of Marc's. Just curious, I often get some great finds at those clearance stores like Ollie's & TJMaxx...I LOVE those places.

    My local TRU just pulled a load of RotF preview Bumblebees and Soundwaves seemingly out of its ass recently. Literally they just went up on the pegs like last month. There may be some older stuff in some smaller stores that other UK members can tell us about, but thought this was pretty odd for such a big chain like TRU.

    Palatka K-Mart still has a ROTF Jetfire hanging around, and it's a steal at $37 on Clearance!! There was also a Leader Brawl there up until about 3 weeks before DOTM hit....
