    Hey guys!

    I was totally stoked to find Grimstone and Steamhammer at a TJ Maxx out here in New Mexico.

    They were marked $12.99

    I picked up 2 Grimstones as I have a loose Steamhammer back home. Can Heavytread and SkyHammer be far behind?


    Only have pics of Grimstone because that's all I bought but I took a crappy cellphione pic of Steamhammer, I'll try and upload it.

    Most likely you will find all of them, since none of the 2 pack later waves never hit retail.....

    I got all of them....great find....

    Yup. There are reports in multiple states, I saw the RTS legends, G2 Prime and the 2 PCC 5 packs mentioned over the weekend myself. The prices were a little high though, regularly the 5 packs were $35, deluxes $17 and I forget how much for the legends. All were 40% off.

    Found at the San Dimas, CA TJ Maxx. Found 2 of each of Grimstone and Steamhammer. Took one of each for myself.

    No such luck at the Brea, CA Borders I was at today. Bunches of the same PCCs that were warming shelves at Targets months ago, and even with the 40% clearance, they were looking to cost more than $20, anyway.

    Well guys, I tried for a half hour to upload the shyte pics of Steamhammer form my shyte cell phone to no avail. I'll take proper pics of the Constructicons in the store tomorrow and add them to the thread. But to be clear, this TJ Maxx had both Grimstone and Steamhammer 5 packs. Three each, I guess that's a case of six? Is that how they came? If so I would conclude stores will get a case each then.:thumbs2:

    Were these rare? There were several of these on clearance for like 9$ at Walmart up until a few days ago. They had all been there forever.

    I think the distro sucked on 'em. I'm from South Florida and we never saw these at all. I'm keeping the faith that TJ/Marshalls/Ross will stock the 2 packs Heavytread, Skyhammer, and Undertow soon as well.

    Hmmm.... no TJ Maxx (or Winners in Canada), or Walmart here in Taiwan. Wonder if I'll still be able to get the last few of these I need.

    Actually managed to get Heavytread and Skyhammer on Prince Edward Island (that's a small place in eastern Canada for all you non-maple syrup chasin' moonshine gulpin' hepcats out there).
    And got a couple of Undertow and another Skyhammer in Hong Kong two months ago.

    Still need Grimstone, and another Heavytread + Salvage (for his little red gun buddy Bomb-Burst) for customizing purposes. Would hate to pay on-line prices for things you guys are getting at discount, but I guess that may be just one of those 'collecting outside of the U.S. or Japan' kinda things.

    And yeah, like some of you are saying, these PCCs are fun to tinker around with. While not the greatest most beautiful sculpts to display, they are still full of fun. Right now I have most of the limbs off the little dudes mixed and matched with each other... just because.
