    I hope this is in the right place.


    I was in Target last night and they had almost everything on sale.

    The Robo Vision Prime was only $19.95!!

    I was upset because I paid $24.95 Saturday morning for the two I bought. But I had the receipt and the guy refunded me the difference in price.

    The Robot Heroes were like $5.37 or so.

    The deluxes were on sale for around $8.00. Sadly the Voyager class was not included.

    A few more movie toys were on sale but I can't remember which ones. So I thought I would get the word out now for those who are near a Target.

    Hrm. I thought someone had reported that Voyagers wre included in the "select others for 10% off". Maybe it varies from store to store.

    Its still cheaper than Target just to order all the movie toys from HTS with the coupon.

    Well if the Voyagers are on sale then even better. There just was no sale tag next to them on the shelf. That's why I didn't think they were included.

    I already took Target to task yesterday and had my giganticus movie haul with the sale going on. Robo-vision Prime originally $25??? What a rip-off, even though it looks so much nicer than the upcoming scheme they've got planned.

    Sorry I'm in Louisiana. However, I think the sale is nationwide.

    I think it's worth the difference to me because:

    1. I like the "metallic" paint scheme. and:

    2. I like the display box with the figure in robot mode. The "Unleashed" style box looks sharp and lets the eye piping in through the top.

    Is the "RoboVision" basically the Voyager size Prime? If so, what's the difference in the figure? I don't care about anything else, just the fig. Is this considered better or worse than the voyager size that's coming?

    As for this sale... yeah, it's good, if you can find anything. I was looking for deluxes. I went to four Targets and only one had any of the deluxe figs, not counting protoforms. It's not that they had them and sold out - there wasn't even a place for them!

    Same figure but painted a little different. Silver instead of grey and lighter colors. Otherwise, it is the same thing.

    That's great and all, but of the 3 Targets near me, they were the stores that had the least amount of product..Still mostly empty shelves.

    Sale is confirmed for Atlanta-area Targets.

    Hit three up over the weekend. First time shopping somewhere besides BBTS in a long while, but the sale brought prices down to about 40% less than Joel's convenience mark-up. Add in the shipping, and I saved a chunk, so the driving was well worth it.

    I'm sticking with just the mainline and Real Gear figures. Only missing Megatron, Scorponok (who I woulda passed on until I found out he combines with Blackout), and Wreckage. Probably get those off HTS.com.

    Huh. I was at a Target on Sunday morning. How did I miss the fact that Deluxes are on sale for $7.99? I even checked the weekly ad for Waldorf, MD online and they had the sale.

    Guess I'll make up for it by hitting the local Target tonight.

    Target has the sale, WalMart has the stock, from what I've seen.

    I'm gonna try exchanging a busted BB at Target tonight. If I can't, I'll just return it and take their ad next door to WalMart and get a price match.

    Unless your ad is different from the St. Louis area one, I don't think it will help. It only showed one or two items (no Deluxes, unless I blinked at the wrong time) and mentioned "selected other Transformers merchandise" is 10% off. Probably won't help you get 20% off Deluxes at WM.
