    Not that I've seen. Yet. Notice the individual auctioning these off is located in Cali. Things often hit there first and move east. Perhaps soon they will be flooding the Ross's around here!?!

    As a Cali resident, I actually haven't seen any Generations toys hit the discount stores... yet. Mostly just RTS.

    But that doesn't mean they won't hit.

    I find that hard to believe with the retailers still stocking the line.

    Unless Ross decided to sell the main line itself, as Marshall's/TJ Maxx sometimes do.

    I found skullgrin, thundercracker and wheeljack at a Marshalls a while back. They were marked at 9.99 I believe.

    If they get the $6.99 sale price like the RTS, I might finally buy some Sweeps.

    I haven't seen anything yet,
    only time will tell.

    (damn, if they do come out, then I overpaid for my Kup, Scourge, Warpath, and Wheeljack figures.....)

    If Warpath shows up, I have no sympathy to people paying a greatly inflated price online.

    But if he doesn't, you do? Either way, seems kinda pointless. People were afraid he'd be hard to find. Other people took advantage of that fear. Circle of life.

    I have seen every single one of those figures at various Ross, TJMaxx, Marshalls and Burlington Coat Factory stores. I have not seen Warpath, but he is available at Toys R Us and Walmart stores around here.

    Hopefully someone will confirm them hitting with the price, that picture doesnt do much to show what they cost. If they are $6.99, I will back up the truck.

    I can confirm that I have purchased an RTS G2 Prime from Ross for $6.99 (package is opened now though. I have also seen Perceptor, Tracks, BB, Jazz, etc.

    Actually as I type this I see my sealed Jazz staring at me with a Ross tag @$6.99. I can upload a pic if further proof is needed.

    But to confirm, the Wreck Gar/prime/BB/Perceptor wave is currently at my Ross' although I have not seen WG there recently.


    Edit: didn't read through all the posts, but Warpath is pegwarming around here. Is this not the case everywhere?

    I've seen Generations figures in Kohl's, but that is about it.

    To reiterate: even Marshall's/TJ Maxx sells new stuff. The price is the clue, I think. If it's a Generations figure for 9.99, that's pretty close to holiday-season prices at Target, etc.

    Just because it is for sale at Ross et al doesn't mean Generations is doomed. Or whatever. I'm not implying anyone is saying that but there's too many threads whinging about the presumed early death of the line, imho.

    Yea, I guess I should have been more specific, wondering if the Generations carded figures are selling for $6.99 as well. I have nailed quite a few RTS figures at the various outlets at that price, but this is the first I have heard of Generations hitting them. Wouldn't mind a couple more of each generations figure at $6.99 a pop.
