    Value Pack my ass. That's a case, and I wouldn't be buying anything with three Bumblebees in it!

    you save about a whopping 30 cents per figure but have to take on 3 BBs if you buy this value pack. How is that a value?

    When you compare it to TRU's prices...you're paying 3 bucks more (plus whatever the shipping is) for six figures (15 times 6 equals 90). The two extra Bumblebee's are free then.

    Now, if you're lucky to find the figures elsewhere (not TRU) for cheaper, then yeah...this is more. So far, I've only been able to find them at TRU. Ebay makes TRU seem like a super deal in comparison. lol

    Plus I want to support the LAST toy store before it is eventually killed off. :(

    well, I'm just comparing it to HTS's own prices for the individual figures. I think that's the only way you can look at these. Cuz if you start comparing it to other stores like TRU or BBTS then yeah it's a value. I mean, Target can say their $12.99 price is a "value" deal if you compare it to TRU too.

    I never even looked at HTS's own prices. lol Since most of their stuff is never even in stock. $11.99 is very low! It's a shame that they can't keep their stock in supply though. So yeah, in comparison to their own prices, it isn't much of a deal. I guess they are sick of Bumblebee too. :)

    Let's go see, 3 Bumblebee's you say? Oh hell no. I have better things to do when have a third yellow sports car on my shelf.

    We seriously need to create a Bumblebee Extermination Squad. This is getting ridiculous.

    Has anyone even asked Hasbro why they still put a focus on Bumblebee? I mean it's ridiculous.

    I'm happier with BBTS offering a set of six. Its a higher cost per figure, but then I'm stuck with only 1 Bumblebee to try and get rid of instead of 3 -- that in of itself, is priceless.

    I think it's a pretty good deal, if they gave free shipping I'd jump on it! And return the BB's to some Target so he can join his brothers warming the shelves.. that's some HOT shelves lmaoo! But i already have all the figs except arcee and ratchet.. good for anyone that hasn't purchased any yet!

    Count me in if one gets formed. I don't think any toy should have more than 2 to a case. Unless there are not enough figures in the wave and they have to fill it out some way. They really need to give bumblebee a rest.

    If Ratchet wasn't the only one I needed, this would be a pretty good deal.

    I'll beat the horse; that would be a heck of a good deal if you didn't have to buy 3 friggin' Bumblebees.
