    I found an MP Rodimus for thirty bucks at a Big Lots once.

    Biggest I've ever seen at Big Lots are repack Cybertron scouts.

    I was at a local Big Lots the other day. They had Legends Cybertron figures on Classics cards, DOTM Cyberverse Optimus, Robot Heroes, and KO Constructicons.

    My Big Lots had Legends from Classics (repackaged from Cybertron), Cybertron Scout repaint/packages, and knock offs last time I checked.

    They usually only have universe scouts, but when dotm came out they got some of the first two waves of deluxes. I haven't seen any newer deluxes or any for that matter since. Recently I've seen the dotm stealth force cars like barricade, leadfoot, and that electronic version of optimust prime. Just the other day I saw the dotm cyberverse shockwave set, ratchet set, prime and megs with trailers, and bumblebee. A few years ago they didn't have the transformers brand at all just KOs

    Big Lots sells two things, official Transformers, and KOs.
    Example: Currently at Big Lots, you can find the deluxe and larger line of Stealth Force figures, and the Generations packaged minicons (don't remember their names).

    And then you can also find KO Insecticons, Devastator and Defensor. Quality is not so good, but they're cheap.

    i've seen two-pack classics/megatron (the crappy optimus/tank megatron) some legends, ko constuticons/aerialbots/beast wars. the official ones were pretty close to retail price and really not that good of a deal.

    When a BL store first opened here 3 years ago, they had Animated deluxes such as Swindle and Blurr. Beyond that, I've seen KO G1 combiner sets and cardbacks for Liokaiser/Devastator as well as some standard DOTM stock. Most recently, though, I've seen minicons and those Cybertron scout repacks.

    Either last year or the year before last I saw KO TM-II Megatron and KO BM Cheetor
    More recently, I've only ever seen them sell Legitimate Hasbro-Branded Transformers toys like what you can find at any Dollar Store.

    I wish I'd have jumped on that KO TM-II megs back then.

    Lessee... I've seen KO 2-packs of Lio Kaiser components and Constructicons, those off-brand insect robots, the repackaged Cybertron scouts and Legends. And KO Optimal Optimus and TMII Megs.

    I've heard that a repacked version of Deluxe Classics Prime and Megatron were common at some point. Never seen them, though.

    The Big Lots near me seems to sell smaller sized TFs. The scouts and legends mostly.

    I was pleasantly shocked when I saw them carrying NEW DotM Deluxes last year when they were still brand new in the main retail stores. It looked to be 1 box worth and they never re-stocked - but they most certainly had a fresh case of current-line deluxes on the pegs for $12.99.

    At my Big Lots they have Shared Exclusive Scout Figures , Universe / Classics Legends / Minicons , Various Energon / Universe Repacks (I Found a Energon Barricade there for $8) Stealthforce Vehicles and DOTM Cyberverse Commander figures like Powerglide , Ironhide, Optimus , Sentinel Prime as well as the DOTM Cyberverse Vehicles sets with Shockwave and Ratchet.

    They also have a abundance of DOTM Preview Pack Commander Optimus Prime with 3d Glasses.

    The selection at Big Lots on Transformers is quite good. It varies by store however.

    Five years ago my local Big Lots had an entire aisle dedicated to Knockoffs. Some were awful some were really cool. Now they have next to nothing. I miss that giant Knockoff aisle :(

    i have that green tm2 megatron, aside from the gutted neck/wing mechanisms and missile launchers it's surprisingly good quality.

    The one I saw wasn't green. It was Red like the toy that got released in the actual Beast Wars line.
