    *EDIT: Meant "@" in the title, not "&".*

    All of the following toys are roughly retail if you're a club member or a few bucks over if you're not:

    Generations Blurr

    Generations Dirge

    Generations Cybertronian Soundwave

    Generations Red Alert

    Legends Wave 3 (Yes, unfortunately if you want the new ones you have to buy the whole case.)

    Firetrap & Hubcap (Again, you have to buy one if you want the other.)

    Sunspot & Insecticon

    Firetrap & Breacher

    Sunspot & Oil Pan

    Highbrow & Battle Blade Optimus Prime

    The Fallen w/ Staff & Battle Blade Optimus Prime

    They HAD the next wave of 2-pack Power Core Combiners, but apparently I bought the last of each that they had-- after I submitted my order, I went to put links to them in this post and they're now all listed as "Out of Stock".

    However, they DO have the still-rare Wave 2 2-packs:

    Icepick w/ Chainclaw

    Sledge w/ Throttler

    Leadfoot w/ Pinpoint

    So, get 'em while they're hot! This is especially a good opportunity if you haven't found some of the more recent waves of Scouts and Voyagers yet like Battle Blade Optimus Prime or Oil Pan, Breacher, and Insecticon!

    Kinda surprised this fell to page 2...and that all the Generations stuff is still in stock. Picked up Blurr, Dirge, Soundwave and Red Alert. I'm done until the next batch of Generations, which technically isn't slated until 2011, right? (Although that probably means December) Thanks for the tip.

    Yeah, it seems that very, very few people check the Club Store on a regular basis. About a month ago they had in stock some then-rare Wave 2 deluxes, Wave 2 legends, and the like, but I didn't have the cash to buy them then so I waited. They stayed in stock for, like, a week until the club finally sent out a mass e-mail announcing that these products were in stock, and then they were all sold out the next day. So I check the Club Store 6 days a week-- if you're looking for new stuff at retail price, they'll often have it for a few days before selling out.

    Kinda sucks that they're double-packing (or triple-packing, or more) so many toys together, though. If they were sold individually, I'd have picked up Sunspot, Firetrap, Legends Tuner Skids, Duststorm, Highbrow, and the blue Fallen redeco in addition to the Generations deluxes & PCC 2-packs that I purchased as well. Ah well, their loss I suppose.

    Wow, thanks!

    Grr. I wish they had the other permutation available. Not sure if I want BBOP, but I definitely want the other two.

    Leadfoot's gone now.

    EDIT: The wave 3 5-packs are back:

    PCC Protectobots

    PCC Destrons

    They've got listings for the wave 3 2-packs, but they're not available.

    EDIT 2: ARGH. They've got HftD Axor, but you have to get Ironhide or Tuner Skids with him.

    Aaaand EDIT 3: Ugh. Their shipping seems to have gotten worse since the last time I bought from them. The cheapest option for 3 Deluxes is $15? Yeah, thanks. I'll wait.

    Am I correct in believing that Dirge and Blurr are in stock and will be shipping soon?

    No no no, those are just preorders. Look at the shipment dates. Toys that they actually have 'in stock" don't have that "This item is scheduled to ship within 4 weeks of the anticipated _______ shipdate." in bold at the top.

    And as I said in the first post, they actually DID have the wave 3 2-packs in stock earlier today, but it looks like I snagged the last one of each of them for myself as they immediately went to "Out of Stock" status after they processed my order.

    *EDIT*:

    Yeah, that's why I posted this thread. The listings for these toys have been up at the Club Store for quite some time, but only today was the actual "This item is scheduled to ship blah blah blah" preorder thing at the top of their order pages gone. That means they're in stock. (Plus, when you add them to your cart and go to check out, they'll all say "shipping immediately".)

    Agh. It's been so long since I'd shopped there, I'd forgotten they were doing that.

    Sorry for the false alarm, folks. Reading is fundamental. :dunce 

    At any rate, shipping prices = insane-o, so I'm giving them a huge pass. No way it costs $20 to ship 6 Deluxes by Priority Mail. I'm willing to bet I could ship them that way for half that. (The $16 was FedEx.)

    Hrrm. Apparently they have a steep initial shipping charge but then it barely goes up, then. I ordered 6 deluxes (well, or the equivalent of them, given the PCC 2-packs) and $16 was the cheapest shipping option for me, which is acceptable for me given I live in the middle of nowhere.

    ^ I did some fiddling with my cart. It all starts fairly high: 1 Deluxe is $10.50 for Priority Mail or $14.15 for FedEx. Fedex is bumped by very little per additional Deluxe, but Priority gets worse. 6 Deluxes was up to $19.80 for Priority, but had "only" risen to $15.65 for Fedex. Shenanigans, I say.

    Yeah I do question where they're getting these rates from. Are they packing an additional two pounds worth of packing material or something?

    Yeah, Fedex was by far the cheapest option for me. (And given you're in Indiana, I'm in Ohio, and they're shipping from Texas, we're both more or less the same distance from them-- those were more or less my rates as well.)

    I think the problem is I know they used to have UPS Ground as an option, which was always cheaper than the others. I wonder why they removed it...

    EDIT: Huh. I guess I mis-remembered. I double-checked my e-mail confirmation, and the shipping via Fedex to my address is $13.01 for the six deluxes. Which is odd, if anything it should cost MORE to ship it to me compared to you....

    My orders with them have always come with the toys well-insulated, but not overly so. The "empty space" in the box is filled up with crumpled up pieces of brown paper.

    Wow. $36 total for just PCC Sledge and Icepick 2-packs? I think I'll wait to get them in stores. Thanks for the heads up, anyway.

    Weirdness with the shipping. It was $11.75 to ship four deluxes for me which didn't seem unreasonable. I just mailed two Ebay sales a couple of days ago that both came out to $11.40. My first thought at $11.75 was, "Gee, that looks pretty familiar."

    Might have to take advantage of this as I don't like hunting for toys plus I am already a member.
