    Three Deluxes for a $25 purchase? They must be sitting on TONS of these.

    It's odd to me that Sideswipe is one of them.

    I don't think they indicate that the three deluxes will absolutely be Sideswipe, Swerve, and Dead End. I think they're just using Sideswipe as an example for the promotion.

    The inclusion of any deluxe figure wouldn't surprise me though, especially pre-NEST battles. There seems to be plenty arround. At least locally, places like Meijer are still stocking Wave 1 and 2.

    That news makes me want to laugh maniacally.

    I think I will hit a few shops then. Even though I have everything. Promotions like this make me as greedy as animated dirge.

    What's a good one to army build? (other than skystalker)

    They'll accept NEST figures right? And with this lasting till the end of July, possibly Hunt for Decepticons?

    With two months to do this, I might give it a shot.

    Looks like I'll be taking advantage of the $30 leaders to pick up a Prime to kitbash. Here's hoping the figures I get will make good kitbash fodder as well.

    Strong chance of leftovers from early waves. Would anyone like 3 Soudwaves?

    It says "Revenge of the Fallen" figures, so I doubt you can use "Hunt for the Decepticons" to get it.

    Ooo... I predict many Movie Sunstreaker customs coming out of this.

    Yeah, you're probably right. But I'm hoping they accept NEST figures. There's still a few I need, so I can rack up 25 bucks easily. Wouldn't be as easy if I have to buy old stock or leftovers of what I already have, in which case it really wouldn't be worth it.

    I guess this marks the end of "Revenge Of The Fallen" toyline.
    Next-up : Hunt For The Decepticons -> Transformers: Prime -> Transformers 3

    There's nothing out that I really want enough to spend $25 on, and I'm sure I would get deluxes that I didn't really want either. So, looks like I'll be passing on this promotion. :/
