cloooooser, just a little morrrrre
I had a $10 for $20 Groupon so I bit before TRU tanks. Dig the Primus mold and a sucker for repaints
shows $38.95 on my end
Tf source has MP ramjet for 119. Now that's how much he should have gone for considering all the qc issues he had
$120-160 for a Seeker? Makes me glad I'm out of the MP collecting scene. That's too much. Consider how TRU sold Starscream for $60! Takara is going nutz with their markups.
Takara Ginrai set: $160
MakeToys Thunder Manus: $125
Am I the only one whos sees something wrong there? The 3P product is now cheaper than the official product? If you're cool with it, awesome, but I suspect high prices like that will collapse the market for these official toys.
Spoiler: That's not a deal!
Oh yeah it is. The deal is you save $35 by buying MT Thunder Manus (likely a superior mold) over the Ginrai set!
Another Ebay Flash sale, 15 of 75:
Having trouble getting it to work on mobile... Huh... I wonder if it's the same code as before or something?
Edit: Not the same code, but not working for me. I wonder if it's glitched...
Code worked for me went ahead and got Fanstoys FT-20 terminus for $177 shipped. New Transformers third party FansToys FT-20 FT20A Greater King Kong MP ratio | eBay
Thanks! Worked fine for me.
Thanks for the code. Bought G2 Grinder from Baba.
Thanks for the Ebay flash sale code. Got reissue Badcube Brawny from Baba and reissue Backland from clothing.2009.
Thanks for the code verification, guys!
Apparently a weird glitch in the eBay app itself. The code worked fine via web browser.
Grabbed the final two DX9 dinobots!
Crap! That's a great idea!
60 shipped? Set complete.
New Meijer ad is Marvel focused: highlight is 6" Legends figs for $16.
But there's another $5 off of $30 coupon in the circular, which works on all toy department purchases (except Legos and bikes).
Sale and coupon good from 10/1 - 10/14! Coupon can be printed from website (click on Toy Ad and then click coupon on bottom left to print it).
Weekly Ad | Meijer.com
EDIT: Some quick math for Marvel Legends collectors: (2x $16) - 5 = $27, or $13.50 per fig! (32.5% off MSRP)
Its weird that its not on bikes. I get that Lego has low margins at $30, but bikes are still like $80-$100 to start for little kid ones, right? What's $5 on a kids bike?
(sorry, side rant)
Amazon/Timmy's Toybox has Misfire, Twin Twist, and Windblade for $19.99 each. Already have Misfire but ordered the other two since local stores seem to hate the idea of bothering to stock this damn wave.
They may yet stock em. I just found a couple at a Target and TRU in IL, so it's possible. The majority of stores are choking on Hot Rod's and Twinferno's, though! Or the dreaded Wave 1.
But according to Hasbro documents, Power of the Primes premiers on Dec. 1 - so there's still a couple of months to possibly restock with Wave 5 (not likely going to see Wave 6 in most parts). I'm praying the discounters will pick some of these missing toys up in a couple of months.
EDIT: Thanks, LSyd for the Amazon heads up! Grabbed Slugslinger on the expectation that he'll likely not make it to stores!
he's back at $19.99
Thanks, grabbed one.
any more Ebay Flash sale?
