    The cure to the epidemic. :D  This applies to the entire wall of BBs. DOTM. Any BB with the exception of weaponizer.

    Yours truly Mr. Brown man.

    I'm guessing that is at a Toys R Us in Canada because of the first edition Bumblebees and the French.

    I hope this initiative is not isolated to a single location though, because a move like that by a major retailer like Toys R Us would be a pretty clear sign to Hasbro that the yellow swarm plaguing many of us is not just a delusion concocted by fans.

    You know, I would actually take an FE Bee for $7 off. Too bad he hasn't been around here since last Christmas.

    Hmm, I need a FE BB. I'll have to check my local TRU.

    Cybertron.ca members have taken initiative to help reduce the BB numbers. They plan on kitbashing a lot of them.

    From another store. Saved 14$ :D  it would have 24$ if the cashiers recognized that the price error on the item. Weaponizer BB should not have been on sale just like Prime. Oh well. I'll take the 40% rebate.

    So far it's TRU only.

    This is not considered news. I hope not. I don't want the stupid news credit. :lol

    Sales are always news on Cybertron.ca. And it's probably the first ever sale specifically aimed at one character.

    Seriously?

    I guess it's alright to get a stupid marking on my handle.

    But this is epic. I hope someone learns not to overflow us with "too much" of a good thing.

    Just to add, I only see the Bumbleebee wall at TRUs. Never at WM, Zellers etc.

    No extra $10 for you. The item has to ring a HIGHER price, not lower.

    It was higher. :)  36.99$ as is. retail price.

    Le rabais est le souvent: Rabais sur rabais. J'ai demande ce quoi le rabais initial sur l'item. Les deux etiquettes sur la meme boite ont le meme prix. Le rabais de 40% sont seulement sur les plus vieux stock qu'ils ont. Ceci ne fais pas parti des rabais avec rabais.

    example:

    PCC undertow. 10$ tag minus 40%. I got it for 6$. As advertised, rebate on the rebate. I didn't get any. :lol

    But you said it was not on sale from the start, so I don't get your point. Regular price is $36.99 and it ringed at $36.99 - 40% even if it wasn't supposed to. Where's the problem?

    hahaha that's why I took it anyway. :) 

    It's still arguably a price error.

    Pricing error, yes, but not one that qualifies for the $10 off parce qu'ils se tiraient déjà dans le pied à la mitrailleuse sauce Rambo en te donnant un 40% que t'étais pas supposé d'avoir! :p

    T'es juste jaloux esti. :p 

    Zellers should have suffer more with their shady rebates. I'll take advantage of it as often as I can.

    The cashier even told me to watch out for the shady rebates on clothes. 50% off. (one week they raise the price then the next it's on "sale" for the original price)

    As long as Hasbro know this is happening and don't just think 'All those Bumblebees sold! Make more!!'.
