    Hmm, I might try that. However, I got the last Mindwipe in stock, and it's highly doubtful the Target in question will get him in stock again, since the only "popular" figure that they were ever good about stocking en masse was Bludgeon.

    Ah, well, maybe I'll luck out with some scouts. I do still need pratically every scout from the last three waves (especially Skystalker now that I have Mindwipe). Two months is a long time, and Scouts (or hopefully even Legend classes like Tankor) are pretty cheap and common, so I might still be able to benefit from this, even if all they send me are three "Preview" Bumblebees in the end.

    I'm thinkn this too. Either way though, I'll prolly do it. Not too hard to spend $25 bucks on TFs. Even if the free deluxes aren't ones I want, or are ones I already have, I've got nephews I can give em too.

    Nothin to lose by mailing away the form.

    FYI: I changed my mind and mailed mine out today. If you're going to do this I recommend getting yours submitted early. The form specifies that the offer is good "while supplies last", and the offer is unfortunately ripe for fraudulent submissions. They don't require that you provide any proof of purchase beyond the receipt (like say a UPC that prevents returns of the items purchased), there's no limit to X submissions per household, and no shipping and handling disincentive to even remotely discourage people from submitting many of these.

    So you basically get your money back if you buy 3 Deluxes or even 2 deluxes and 1 scout.

    I wonder if they would still honor the deal if you used the $5 of $20 coupon that came with the Recon Ravage (if the subtotal was less than $25). Hmmmm....Not too many ROTF figures I want anymore....

    I'd encourage anyone who is buying enough eligible TF products during this promotion to send their receipts in, even if you're not sure you want the figures. If any/all of the 3 free Deluxes turn out to be ones you don't want, it would be a great opportunity to donate some new TF figures to a children's charity.

    When I go out tomorrow, I'm going to pick up $25 worth of RotF Deluxes for my Toys for Tots donation pile and then send in for the 3 Deluxes and donate those as well. Since there's no limit on the number of submissions per household, I may even repeat the procedure a few times before the end of July.

    I'm kind of curious whether they'll just send you those three figures, or if they send you like, coupons that you can use at stores to choose which ones you want...

    I'm also curious whether or not the Shanghai set would count as one of the purchases, seeing as how it contains both a voyager AND a deluxe...

    I'd guess this box set would not work. Although it contains a deluxe and voyager, it would be labeled on the receipt as "collector 2-pack" or something like that.

    I am wondering this as well. Or if any of those TRU exclusive bundle packs are included. With the BOGO1/2off sale they are doing, it would be a good chance to stock up.

    Read the form people, Human Alliance figures ARE NOT eligible in this promotion, neither would any non-standard pricepoint/set like the store exclusives (not sure about BOGO bundles)

    Just thought of something. Is it possible for to just buy 3 deluxes, send in the receipt, return the deluxes for store credit, and when I get the 3 free deluxes, return the ones I have for store credit?

    Because if this is possible, then I'm totally doing it.

    Yes, this is the potential for fraud and abuse I alluded to in my earlier post. You shouldn't do this.

    Thats probably what I'd end up doing. With my luck the 3 I'll get will be ones I already have or repaints that I don't want.

    Well, I guess I could suck it up and buy that Ironhide or that 'Bee vs. 'Wave 2-pack. There is a part of me that sorta wants them, even though I pretty much already have them since I own Movie 1 Ironhide, Cannon 'Bee, and Soundwave.

    I'd take up this offer without question if the three Deluxes were War for Cybertron Prime, Bee, and Megs. That said, I'll wait and see, 'cause someone on the boards here is obviously going to participate in this, and we'll get an update from them.

    I am likely to spend $25 on transformers by end of July. Why not?
