    Starting Sunday, Toys "R" Us will be having a special deal on ALL Transformers. If you purchase a total of $19.99 in Transformers toys and accessories or more, you will receive a FREE Cybertron scout ($6.99 value).

    As Classic have started to show in stores, you can always pick up Megatron and Prime to get some FREE basics. This is great deal for those of us that want a few more scrapmetal for your armys or still have a few basics you want to add to your collection.

    Note: This offer ends on 10/15 or while supplies last. Offer valid in the continental U.S.

    Saw a box of "TRA CYBERTRON SCOUT WAVE 2.5 06" yesterday. That's a little OLD?!?!

    Probably picked up some old shipments from Hasbro or it could be just an odd case found in the warehouse. Hard to say without talking to the Boys Buyer.

    I know we have a computer listing for those three pack of CYB deluxes that showed up recenty from Hasbro. Those will probably be some special holiday deal to help clear the rest of Hasbro's CYB inventory. We always seem to get a lot of those deals for November.

    Makes sense.

    Seems like Toys'R'Us always gets the older shipments, or they receive older supply from the warehouse, while Target and WalMart do not. I think it has to do with the warehouse in the sense that Target and WalMart seem to throw out everything they get (save Supremes) from stock while Toys'R'Us has to sit on a lot of it.

    So now every major chain has a sale going. Figures, I'm totally caught up on retail TFs. Done with Cyb, got the Classics already... I don't need to shop. Well, I could use a basic or two as repaint fodder I guess.

    I've seen a lot of older stuff showing up again.. Alts, Deluxes and Basics. I'm betting that Hasbro is selling it stores at a discount.

    So if you buy $40 worth of TFs will you be able to get 2 free scouts or just one?

    I liked their last sale better: Buy 0 get 1 free!!

    I order Alt Prime and Mirage during Buy 2 get 1 free and picked Cyb Soundwave for free. I immediately got a backorder notice on the Alts and a shipping notice on Soundwave. A couple days later, they cancelled my Alternator orders, but Soundwave arrive a couple days ago. Total cost: $0!!!

    Thanks TRU!

    Hmm, well I hope my local places get some shit in. Seriouslly I'm waiting on Classics to hit. I did see that Autovolt repainted as Smokescreen the other day and do think it looks pretty snazzy.

    I just need to figure a way to get ato a Toys R Us when the one I had IN WALKING DISTANCE closed up. Swear I f'n hate.

    I've been seeing a lot of Cybertron Swerves showing up again... been wanting to get one. That's probably my favorite basic mold from Cybertron.

    thank goodness! My store is overrun by Cybertron. sixteen pegs nearly full of deluxes, 12 of basics that ARE full, twenty-odd voyageurs, nearly as many ultras, a couple leaders, and1/3 of the riser (I mean of the full isle-length) is nothing but supreme starscreams.
