    The prices are finally starting to get attractive on some things. I snagged a Radio Flyer Landspeeder for $135, five Studio Series Thundercrackers for $19 each (one for me and the rest for trading), a Starlord/Ego Marvel Legends pack for $19, and a bunch of oddball stuff my toddler wanted.

    They've got piles and piles of the Starlord/Ego set at Target for $17 or $19.

    I went to a TRU Outlet and saw that discounts are 50-70% off. This a widespread thing now?

    I have a question for UKers.

    Since Toysrus is closing in the UK too, how good is Smyths Toys?

    Just that I found something on that site that interested me. Although I'm not ordering it, mostly because they only ship to the UK.

    Found Grotesque today. Looked like 30+ of them at this store? ended up being $15.74 with the 30% off plus the 10% extra off.

    I thought grotusque had the decepticon logo on it's box, while arcee had the autobot logo.
    Looks they all have the autobot logo.

    Man, I'd kill for a Grotusque to show up near me. Still holding out for them to maybe show up as an online exclusive somewhere.

    Cracked and bought the last planet Cybertron for $100 including tax. Still way more than I wanted to pay but I really wanted this mold and I think this will be cheaper than getting the original.

    Most annoying though, the instructions were not included!

    Nope, Grotesque has the Autobot Logo on the front. I have yet to see any stores with Arcee getting stocked.

    I love how that multi-colored stuffed unicorn is just sitting there smiling through the pain, with shining, teary eyes, like, "Someone will buy me. Some child, somewhere WILL come for me before the end. I just know it..."

    I hadn't looked at it like that! haha But the fact these are in the collectibles area, and not with the other TF's, I bet you can guess how much that store cares.

    Some may show up, but Arcee was sold out online months before the closing announcement.
