    No details as to which "select Transformers action figures" will be chosen for the $10 mark down, but this news may be quite good for collectors and kids alike. My thought would be that Voyagers would be the select group to mark down to $10 bucks for the Holiday season. Not sure if this will mean Universe, ROTF, or Animated, but my pallet is wet and I'm eager to learn more....

    One of the Walmarts in Frederick MD just put a display up with a ton of movie deluxes for $10 even. With Christmas deco arriving daily, I'd say those are the select tformers mentioned.

    I agree that it'll be Deluxes, with Voyagers holding $19 and Leaders at $35.
    Makes sense.

    My Walmart just put out a display with all old crap. Bumblebee helmets, Devastators & the voyagers Megatron, Fallen, Ratchet & Stratosphere. I thought for sure they would have Long Haul & Grindor but nope!

    If the Deluxes are gonna be the ones on sale, I'm gonna have to pass on that. WM near my house only have Chromia, Wheelie, Skids, and Desert Brawl.

    My local Walmart had deluxes for $10 the other day. I picked up ROTF Swerve and Scorponock. Needless to say I was pretty happy

    Let me tell you, this past weekend I hit almost every Walmart, Target, and TRU from Hagerstown MD, down 81 South, 220, and 68(I think) into Greensboro NC, and I didn't find 1 Grindor or Long Haul. Have they all been purchased, or did these places stock up on too much older product?

    Go north. We had some in Chambersburg awhile back (still a few Grindors at Target), and up around Harrisburg I saw two Long Hauls and a few Grindors.

    For the sale, if I can find a Heavy Load and a Powerglide, I'll be happy. Hardhead looks better as Onslaught, but would make a nifty Universe Bulkhead.
    Incidentally, the local WM has Shadowblade Megatrons in the clearance aisle for $20.
