    Ebay:
    A toy shop in my area, who also has a website, just listed Prime figures in stock. Their prices really can't be beat anywhere.

    I just received an email that they are now carrying Transformers Prime figures including Soundwave, Arcee and Ratchet (currently in stock).

    I'm on their mailing list and I've ordered from them many times and I highly recommend this website. It was also stated in their email that if the demand was there they would continue to stock transformers.

    How are they able to sell them that cheap? Are you sure that's legit?

    It really is legit, I've been buying Marvel Universe and DC Classics from them for a while. They even ship the loose figures free.

    Their prices keep me coming back.

    Retailers ultimately set their own prices. They must either not care for profit over the wholesale price, or get enough orders that it covers it. Or even kill you on the shopping costs. LOL

    From my past experiences, the shipping rates have always been very reasonable. I've rarely paid shipping costs because I ordered loose figures.

    too bad the ones I want (and probably everyone else wants) are sold out which is Ratchet and Soundwave. I'm definitely bookmarking their site though and keep an eye out. thanks.

    Not bad... 5.25 to ship one deluxe. At $9 for the deluxe, that's almost the same price as most retail (and cheaper than TRU). Too bad Prime Ratchet is sold out... looks like there's just one Arcee left also.

    Hopefully the increased attention will keep them interested in stocking Transformers regularly, especially considering their prices.

    Sweet! Got RiD Arcee (which is the last deluxe I need to complete my Wave 1 and Wave 2 collection). Got it for $14.64 shipped which is almost what it would cost at retail here in Dallas, TX. AND I don't have to drive around and waste gas to find her! Nice! Thanks for the heads up man!

    Happy to help! If I get any notifications about more being in stock I'll be sure to let everyone know.

    Their mailing list is definitely one to watch.

    Hopefully they build up inventory. I'd rather buy from a store than try for deals like these on eBay.

    BTW they spelled Canada wrong in that purchase requirement. :D

    I don't feel like filling out another profile right now, but does anyone know how much they'd charge to ship small stuff to Canada? Like, I get that things with free shipping are said to apply if we spend at least 5 bucks (more than reasonable), but I'm curious if anyone who's already made an account or whatever has tried out of curiosity.

    They are definitely legit, I actually ordered the very first Ratchet / Arcee they put up last night. I've been ordering figures for them for a long time now.

    He doesn't get a lot of stock in so you've just got to be lucky and be there when he restocks. His prices always beat retail too, and even after shipping you're just paying retail costs.

    In the rare occasion I've had a problem there, he has always answered emails quickly and gone out of his way to solve the problem.

    Always nice to find another online shop and I'll keep an eye on them to see if I can nab a few Vehicons when they go up. I hope they have more luck moving those Bumblebees than everyone else though. If those never sell they problably won't be ordering many more transformers.

    Yeah, that place was bookmarked right away, and I'll be checking it ever so often.

    These are back in stock if anyone wants them.

    Soundwave x 2
    Arcee x 2
    Ratchet x 1
    Wheeljack x 1

    $8.99 each.

    The ones I ordered at the beginning of the week should be here Friday, you can order with confidence, this guy is a good seller. Used him a bunch of times with no problem.

    Congrats to whoever gets these, he's really stocking up well on these so they must be selling good... this is the third restock I've seen on these figures.
