    I was at Target today and the combiner class Bruticus was on sale for $14.98 from $29.98, I don't know if it was just because my specific Target needed to move them because they didn't sell well, but nonetheless you should all check out your clearance sections for him.

    Aw dammit, knew I should have just held off on him. As awesome as he was, something about him smelled like a shelf-warmer.

    I saw plenty when they weren't on sale, but I didn't have any money then. As soon as they go on sale they all disappeared.

    I had asked a buddy of mine to pick up a Bruticus for me, but he didn't have the money to spare to grab one for me...

    The day I meant to go take the 1.5 hour trip to my nearest Target to look for one (and, aside from that, turn it into a date with the girlfriend), he IMs me as we're getting ready to go and said he had picked one up for $20 for me... saved us a trip (and yes, I still took the woman out, just a little more locally). So not quite half off, but even with shipping included, I'm getting Bruticus for less than full retail. Course, he's been real busy and hasn't been able to ship yet, so this is just like my Superion, just with a little more communication (that story being that UPS couldn't deliver for some reason, TWICE... so the first time, they gave me my shipping cost back, second time they gave me free shipping plus 10% off).

    I guess the sales are store-specific.

    My target has been out of stock on Bruticus and Superion for at least a month or so.

    I've seen them down to 30% off here in Minnesota. Oh on a side note the Superion box set has the same SKU so if you find one you can return a discounted Brutiicus in it's place adn get the discount on Bruticus and Superion :D

    I went to Target and saw the Bruticus and Superion sets were $21. I passed. :/

    I was never thrilled about those sets, but I would be thrilled for those sets for around $15. I guess $21 still felt like too much.

    Question: Honestly, I just haven't shown any interest in either the Bruticus or Superion molds at all until I saw this thread that there was a discount. To me, I thought $21 was too high a price. However, I simply don't know how much they're supposed to be. Was $21 MSRP? Was that a good deal? Or is $49.99 MSRP?
