    Hasbro's running a 10 day clearance sale here in Taipei. Started on the 4th and going till the 13th.

    Items ranging from year old shelf-warmers, to new Takara items like Superion, Adventure toy-line items, Hasbro RID, TF: Prime (FE, BH), Kre-O, DOTM, as well as some Marvel and My Little Pony items. Good prices, with an additional 10% off if you buy at least 5 items.

    Huge line-up at opening, and stock being grabbed up by the arm loads. B-line it for downstairs where the better TF items are, and bring a huge bag to put your chosen items in because it's not easy to move around in there with an armload of boxes. The crowd is packed in and full of frenzied collectors.

    Wow, what I would not give to be there right now! Out of curiosity, how much did you pay for your items (just so we can get an idea as to the savings) and was there any GI Joe items there, LOL

    I paid NT$3000 (3300 with 10% off)
    150 Kre-O packs
    450 Strongarm
    600 Adv. Lockdown
    350 DOTM Hound + Lockdown
    550 Tak Swerve + Tailgate

    (didn't see any GI Joe)

    Ha, no, I certainly am not. Cheerfully helping out as usual is my lovely wife. We got up early, went for breakfast, scootered to the toy sale, and she helped me rush in and filled her arms up with a whole bunch of stuff I might want! Wouldn't have gotten that Strongarm or Swerve+Tailgate without her determined spirit!

    Wow, those are some great prices. For those who would like to know

    NT$2300 is about $71 USD for Superion and the $3000 the OP paid is about $92 for 9 Kre-O Micro Changer packs, a Legends 2 Pack, A TAV figure, a RID Deluxe and AOE Voyager/Deluxe 2 pack. That is a sweet deal

    Great haul Prime Roller. Btw how's the TF following like in Taiwan? I read from somewhere people are more into Gundams rather than TFs. Is that true?

    Mattel also has several locations that do this. There is one here in Mississauga.
