    I love how the sdcc exclusive mp rodimus is at a clearance price of 79. Can still find him on the shelf around here.

    The funny thing about it is the price was $59.99 when it was first released at TRU. Then they raised to $69.99. And that's still cheaper than what BBTS have them for sale.

    Those seacons are a heck of a deal now. They still have almost 3000 left.

    Are the Seacons worth that? They have over 2000 in stock so not too worried about them selling out right away but not sure if it's a good toy.

    It definitely seems like it's got $30 of playability.

    No, I've had one for a bit, and wanted another. Even at $63 I feel like it's too damned expensive for what it is. It's just a me thing.

    This..really isn't much of a sale..more like "No one bought them at our inflated prices so we marked them down some..maybe this will work." sorta thing..but still probably won't help move any of it.

    I'll bite on the $30 Seacons. That's a good price I think.

    Exactly. I was thinking something big, but some of these prices they only lowered about 5$ off of what they usually demand.

    I'd disagree with you about the Seacons, considering they're selling them at half the original price. $30 for a sealed G1 combiner reissue is pretty damn generous. That should help move some of it.

    And the Takara Animated Rodimus is selling for about the same price as the Hasbro version at TRU. In some cases, it lower.

    I guess you can't satisfy everyone.

    Man, if Sonicron had a decent headsculpt I'd be on that like white on rice... but... it doesn't. $30 for a Voyager-sized third party figure seems like it should be a steal (especially since it's my favorite character)... if it weren't a mediocre at best figure and just awkward looking in robot mode.

    Sigh.
