    Hey guys,
    Just took a peek at next weeks flyer for Target and it has Deluxe Cybertron toys listed for $7.88. The ad also says select other Transformers items 10% off.

    I wouldn't expect Classics to be on sale since they're technically not supposed to be on the shelf next week. Anyways, great chance to pick up some of those end of the line figures on the cheap.

    EDIT: Could a mod correct my spelling error.

    Hopefully we'll get a wave five box in that actually has the BW 10th repaints! My Target's got five of those freakin' wave 5 revision 4 boxes in, but the only wave five 06 figure is Smokescreen... the others are CD Hot Shot, Thunderblast, Brimstone and the four Armada remolds. Argh. I really want my Cybertron Apelinq and Predacon!!!!!

    I'll have to see which items are 10% off. I got a few during the TRU sale, but no Alts.

    Hm... maybe I'll pick up a spare Shortround to convert to Seaspray for the Classics shelf if basics are included.

    Yeah, I saw this crappy assortment at TRU today too. They must have had 2-3 cases of it. Thanks Hasbro.

    Even with the 10% off, the Classic deluxes would still be more expensive than TRU and Walmart.

    Wrong, classics rung up for $9.99 at my store yesterday when a coworker and I bought our deluxes.

    Besides, like I said, classics most likely won't be included in the sale.

    If I can find the BW Megs repaint, and maybe the Primal one, I'll get them. I was hoping for a better sale though, so I can pick up Metroplex. Guess I'll just wait and see if Target clearances him.

    Then you better get on the horn to corporate because as of yesterday they're ringing up at $12.99 around here. Total rip off at that price.

    ...wow...

    That's messed up. They're scanning up at my Target for $9.99 too (and I work at the one Dark Magnus used to work at... so we're not that far from each other) a mutual friend of ours bought some last night and they rang up at the $9.99 price. Yeash... I guess initial reports of Target overcharging for Classics was true after all and they decided to change their minds at some point... and someone forgot to change it...

    Man, our company just sucks with TF pricing. First that Titanium debaucle, now this.

    Well, $5 seemed like the right price for Titanium Floppymegs.

    If you feel you are paying the wrong price for an item, let the Toy Department Manager at Target know so they can get that changed. It's something that was entered in to the system incorrectly, possibly at that store, and can be fixed very easily.

    Just like how you paid too little for Primus and it was fixed eventually.
