    I've only found this in NON Super Targets (so the older, regular Targets).

    They are clearancing out all non-Classic size-classes with this modular set. Leader sizes are already down to 50% off ($19.87ish) as well as their Ultra assortment at 25% off ($17.87ish). This INCLUDES the new figures (Cryo-Scourge, Sky Shadow, Metroplex, Galaxy Force Optimus Prime, etc.)

    Supremes, basics, deluxes, Alternators, Mini-Cons, are all still full-prize.

    Just a heads up!

    Hopefully the blow-out's will happen at stores other then Target. Like Zellers or Wal-Mart.

    ditto... must resist... for further discount.

    I've wanted a Metroplex and dropping below 20 makes him damn close to affordable!

    Good time to be a fan. New stuff to get excited about, old stuff to load up on.

    Cybertron Metroplex is still one of those I've kinda been on the fence about (leaning more towards not getting him because of his lost-contact alt mode) but at a decent price I may go ahead and get one.

    My Super had a 15% off sale last week on everything TF related, though I'd suspect it was a local deal.

    Hmm. Pity there aren't any non-super Targets in town. I might actually consider Metroplex for $17 (solely for his Cyber Key, I want it for Primus' Omega Lock). But I'm not going to drive the half hour down to Coralville for him.

    This makes sense. Boards have been saying for weeks that this is when Target stores are getting the new "Classics" Transformers, and they'll need to reorganize their aisle pegs to put them up. That means all the old TFs need to go out, and the clearance endcaps are the easiest place to put them.

    Now the wait begins on Primus price drop. Although like others have said, I may pick up a Metroplex, Ka's lumberjacking him has kinda had me wanting it.

    It looks like the discounts may vary from store to store. I just went to a non-Super Target a little while ago, and their Leader class figures were $27.xx and their Ultra class figures were $17.48 (which amounts to 30% off for both classes). Unfortunately, they only had an Optimus Prime (I was hoping to pick up a second Metroplex).

    Yeah, this happened because the revision to add on the Classic Voyagers took away the space for the Cybertron Ultras and the addition of 20th Prime took away the space for the Cybertron Leaders at all regular Target locations. Dark Magnus could probably fill in more about that sense he's actually a POG TL at his store.

    Amusingly enough... the addition of the single peg line of Classic Deluxes didn't take away from the two peg lines of Cybertron Deluxes, but nixed out one of the two peg lines of Star Wars TFs... wonder which one is selling better? : ;) 

    Also, on a related and funny note... this really doesn't make much sense with the removal of the Cyb Ultras and Leaders as the planogram has two spaces for Cyb Voyagers (which could have been cut to one to add the Classic Voyagers) and two spaces for Cyb Supremes (which could have been done as above to make room for 20th Prime). I really only mention this, because it seems odd for Target to not keep a full variety of stuff on the shelf with the holidays coming up and all.
