    I think awhile ago there was a store listing of a TRU 3-pack for $29.99 and people were speculating Classic Seekers... well, I think it's bad news(if this is news), I saw two $29.99 3-packs in TRU today: the triple carded Cybertron deluxes.

    It really makes the "value" thing pretty stupid on the card, so either someone at TRU doesn't know what "value" means or maybe they're bringing them in at a "high" price so they can mark them down closer to Christmas and parents will buy them faster.

    There's nothing on the back of the card, so these figures have no tech specs/bio at all with them.

    That sucks but it is expected, especially since we didn't see anything at Botcon about it.

    Stupid. Shouldn't call it a "value'' pack.

    2005: Two deluxes for $10! Value!
    2006: Three deluxes for $30! Value!

    A year ago I could get six toys instead of three at the same price. I'm struggling to see the logic here....

    They'll have to clearance them out to actually make a sale. Though it would help me to collect backups of certain figures.

    They could be a black friday item like the JL 10" figs a few years back. At least that would be my guess.

    this 3 pack of cyb deluxes was mentioned before, here in the news forum actually. Though, this is the first actual in-store sighting that I'm aware of. Would be nice of someone to snap us a picture to use of course. *hint hint*

    Now that I look at the price, $29.99, it is actually 2 cents higher than buying all three separately. What a deal, I could pay $29.99 for the value pack or $29.97 for 3 separate figures.

    Redline that Classics Megatron custom in your sig is badass. I would buy that version over the Hasbro one any day, although after doing so I would buy the other too.

    as suspected, and very disappointing ~ and nonsensical, since as pointed out, it's actually MORE expensive than buying individual figures :p

    Now that you think about 3 packs, aren't all of the Cybertron 3 packs sold out?

    Well, that's just ridiculous... you'd think they'd have their shit together before the merchandise reaches the store, but that's retail for you I guess...
