    Not just AoE, but Generations Deluxes as well. Just the current wave. Saw Springer for $16.

    Yeah, they're like 9.96 at my local store. Finally pulled the trigger on Gen Skywarp.

    Sweet titty sprinkles, time to buy up some Dinobots and give each one of them a G2 color scheme.

    Way ahead of you guys! I've been watching the Dinobots for the past couple weeks. Refreshing the page every day hoping they'll show as in stock. No luck so far. I just want Scorn.

    And I don't think the stores around me even know they have deluxes. They don't have pegs for deluxes. They have tons of those simple action flip things that don't sell. I don't think there's any hope of finding any deluxes in an actual Walmart store. And I won't pay $15 at other stores.

    And over on Amazon all the Dinobots are normal retail except Scorn is jacked up to $25.99 (the 1 that I want as usual). This hobby is absolutely NO FUN anymore. I don't know how you guys can stand all the bullshit. :(

    No, he just described the core of economics: supply and demand.

    Yeah, that too.


    Just have to wonder if the supply is being held up in warehouses. The manager at my Walmart told me they keep trying to order the product that is sold out but they just won't ship it to them. They can't restock & don't know why. I don't know what to believe. There's a big difference between no supply left to meet the demand & a bunch of dipshits not doing their job.

    Subscribe to that stickied thread jru posted. The $10 deluxes at Walmart.com were reported there 1-2 weeks ago and all of them were in stock. B&M stores having them for $10 and the price applying to Classics Generations as well were also first noted in that thread.

    TL;DR: You snooze, you lose. This price drop has been posted to TFW for a loooong time now.

    Protip: someone posted in that thread that Target is going to do a promo for Transformers next week. So don't go crying in a couple of weeks time that everything in Target is now out of stock

    No, walmart.com is a joke. during the dotm movie, I sent repeated complaints in about all the transformers being consistently out of stock and if it wasn't getting restoxked, then it need to be pulled from the site. it took awhile but eventually the outs were pulled

    depends on the size of your store. the warehouse fullfills the orders to bigger stores first and smaller stores get hosed. happens to my store all the time. I started selling all my display camers last year when box stock wouldn't come in, so I could send a message to the market manager

    So, you know you guys can go into Tru and show them the walmart.com page with the deluxes for 9.97 and get that price, right? I got Strafe tonight by doing so and saved 6 bucks!

    Fighting the urge to not buy 10 FOC Skywarps... They just look so good, and would look killer being army built with a WFC/FOC line up...

    Yep. Got Crosshairs and a couple Assault Mini-Con teams last weekend. Hoping the price drop lasts the summer, give a couple more waves a chance to eek out onto shelves. Would really like to pick up a couple Tankors on the cheap.
