    one of my local drug stores actually carry older universe deluxes. They have prowl and sunstreaker but they are 17.99. That seems reallllly excessive even for a drug store markup. my question, are they worth getting at that price lol. even tho they are outrageously priced at least i think so, I cant stop wondering if i should pick them up. damn this plastic crack addiction. im starting to think that real crack may be cheaper lol
    Thanks

    I'd say no.

    If you really want those figures, it'd probably be best to check elsewhere.

    well the reason i ask is because no one else is carrying the line right now in town. even if i buy online with shipping and all they will end up being more. i dunno guess if u are looking for universe try your drug stores lol. i got acid storm the other day at kmart on clearance for 9.

    Well then I'd say if you really do want them, then go for it.

    But if you're feeling is that you could take or leave them, then leave them.

    This is true.

    I need a new Sideswipe and if I see him at a store for that price I wouldn't hessitate. People say TFs aren't investments. I strongly disagree.

    Hey, you can order off HTS. If you put in the code BKTF09 you will get free shipping. It last till the 31st, though...

    I asked this same question maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago and got the answer above. I took the advice and wound up with a box full of new Universe figures a week later. Much more value than caving to the drug store (Rite Aid) markup.

    I've seen my fair share of older Universe Deluxes (wave 1 and 2 at least) in Rite Aids and Walgreens this past summer. I'd say go for it.

    Ebay:
    the hts option is good, or buy a few from someone in the junkion and shipping will go down so that it's barely even included, and sometimes people have them for less than retail shipped, loose, but that just means that they have been inspected for flaws already

    If I missed out, I'd get them and eliminate the online hassle and shipping fees.

    I'd recommend taking advantage of the HTS BKTF09 code, they have prowl and sunstreaker.
