    USA TRU Sale week of 4/9-4/15...

    My brother works at TRU and saw the upcoming flyer for the week of April 9- April 15. During this week you get a $9.99 value TFormer for every $19.99 spent on TFormer product.

    Buy a voyager and get a deluxe free. Not too bad if you ask me. Thought you guys might want to know so that you can start saving your pennies.

    Doesn't do me any good, there's an inordinate amount of Mudflaps clogging the shelves around here.

    Hey, now I have an excuse to nab Dark Scorponok and.. hmmm, I don't know whether to grab Buzzsaw, Blur, or if I should just grab an extra Thunderblast to repaint like Dreadwing...

    He warms at most places around me. Maybe it's the French accent....

    Here's hoping for Sky Shadow, Wing Saber, Alt Prime, Excellion, Shortround, and Repugnus at my TRU in 2 weeks! (A guy can dream, can't he?)

    You said it man... I really want to get C. Blurr, and have finally started seeing him... but if I can get him for free when I eventually find Wing Saber, I'll be a happy camper.

    That's not a bad sale at all. You can snag an Alternator or Voyager and get a free deluxe!?! That's much better than the free basic sale they just had. Even better would be a buy 2 get 1 free deal like last year. :)

    Be better if they were $9.99, like they should be.

    Yeah, it's only cool to add extra paint apps, include free exclusive PVC figures, make an extra effort on kickass packaging and charge a little more for it, if you're Takara. :lol

    Extra paint apps don't really affect the price, if at all. Transmutate on a whole I've never cared for. That ep of BW I've never liked, I always skip it when I watch my DVDs, and I just flat out hate the character. So that's a pretty worthless gimmick for me.

    The figures themselves fall within the basic-to-deluxe sized range, and I just feel $15 a piece is a little much. That's 2 Cybertron Basics, a Deluxe with a couple bucks left over, or spend another $5 and get two Deluxes, or a freaking Voyager or Alternator. Money's a little tight for me, and that's how I'd rather spend it.

    Now the new Primal and Megatron on the other hand...those are worth the $15, and I'll gladly buy them.

    And here I thought that wave was gonna be $20. Oh, wait, that's because with the first two waves as shelf warmers the only place we're gonna see them is online. :thumbdown 

    But yay, I like this sale. It has potential. I just hope that there's a downshift and either soundwave or wing saber when I get there.
