    Found this at a local Ollie's, I would have probably picked it up for $20 but I just got Grindor on clearance at Target a little while back...

    I can see why both molds are repaints and neither is all that great, Ratchet does what it is meant to do but it just not a spectacular mold. as for the Grindor the tales abound about the horrible automorph in that figure.

    I thought these were Cosco exclusives. Sounds like odd distribution there.

    Man, I wish I still lived in PA, Ollie's had some great deals. Definitely would've picked that up at that price.

    I actually got that at my local Costco for just $15 marked down. I decided I didn't like it enough and sold it.

    The Bludgeon/Whirl pack was down to about $18-19 in stores and was down to $15 on their web site. I picked it up at the $19 price and also got Seaspray half off in the BOGOHO sale. That was great.

    Yea, I picked one up at Costco for a friend's kids birthday for $23. I don't think the price on it was ever bad (I think $32 originally), but most people already had both molds from the first movie, and they arn't all that great. I would probably pick one up on clearance if I saw it, just to round out my display.
