    You pretty much could have gotten it for that (not as a repackage) during the 25% off any toy sale they had going a week or two back, couldn't you?

    I agree that is what it should have cost in the first place, but I'm not a huge Bayformer fan so my opinion might be skewed. I'm holding out hoping they'll go on clearance for 50% off like Starscream did and then I'll probably pick one up if I can find one.

    I remember seeing a Gnaw there once as a kid. They had the transforming letter dudes, too.

    I think it's just a reflection on the growing price of MPs. But then, what do I know. I dropped around $200 on the Takara Seacon molds and will do it again in December for Neptune.

    Quint and two ER Megs at Pilot Knob AV Target. They've also put out a fresh case of the Doublecrosser battlemaster wave. Ramps for days!

    Yup! Now to see if Neptune gets here first.

    Thanks. Grabbed one there today. They also had a few of the Doublecrosser ramp wave and a Runamuck hiding behind the Siege Deluxes.

    Aldi's is carrying deluxe toys for $18. This is from today's newspaper flyer. Says it starts this Wednesday.

    Has Aldi always carried toys or is this new this year?

    They have had other toys in the past around the holidays. One time they carried Titans Return Ramhorn.

    I stopped at my Aldi's and they didn't have any yet.

    I also stopped at Walgreen's. They have deluxes marked down to $15. When did that start?

    Man Aldi was the ONLY PLACE that had ramhorn. XD

    Stopped at Shakopee Walmart, nothing too interesting. A lot of ER Primes, Netflix Megs and Hotlink, a few Alicons strewn about and one Airwave.

    Probably this week in time for Black Friday.

    Regarding Walmart, when was the W2 Netflix stuff supposed to drop?

    If you mean Bumblebee and Soundwave and whatnot, then it was supposed to be the 12th, but I received an email saying they've been pushed back to December 15th

    Forgot to post it yesterday...Eagan Wally had two G1 Blasters yesterday late morning. Dunno if anyone cares or not, but skimming the previous 150 posts I was behind on, I didn't see a sighting for him mentioned.

    I feel like he's been re-released a lot. He's popped in and out at Hidden and Shakopee Walmarts lately.

    How much was Skorpy, if you remember?

    Funny about that Astro, as I just snagged one off Amazon for $35 shipped. ERs are going for $60 but nobody is checking the old one apparently. (Edina Target also had one alongside ER Prime, sorry I didn't mention that this weekend).

    Hadn't been there to Cedar Cliff in a while, how's the stock in general? Felt like for a while they had run reaaaaly low. Which makes sense since I'm guessing it's hard to be a buyer right now.

    Couldn't see the price since it was on the top shelf.

    Their stock is ok, I guess. They still have a couple of sealed TR figures and some older ones in plastic bags. They have quite a few siege figures too, including Hot Link I think. Otherwise that's about it, transformers wise.

    Well for any fellow collectors in the Bloomington/Richfield area you’re gonna have another competitor for toy hunting as it looks like I’ll be moving down here.
