    Yeah, they had updated tags with the $12.99 price point. I asked them to verify at one store today in case they dropped further, but they were still $13.

    Well the closest Ollie’s is 2 hours from me and I’m not driving because my car was stolen in October. If anyone wants to buy me one, I will pay you retail plus shipping. Please!

    I'm finding that aldi's is a widely ymmv chain... although I was able to get doubles of the four ER figures in that wave for $5 each (half off the label in prior message), I haven't found another store with both stock and that price since...

    this label might give some hope, as it illustrates the effective date being 12/26.

    As an aside, some Ross stores I've checked today have been nearly fully cleared out of toys, and for those that remain behind, well, let's just say it does infer something(s) about those particular items.

    Oddly, while I don't collect bot bots, I did see one store that had no duplicates, but 8 distinct sets. 20201227_143702.jpg
    Also saw two types of bot bot packs at 5below, but they had fewer bots per pack than the ones at ross.

    Yeah, I found Earthrise wave 2 deluxes at my Aldi (Fort Myers, FL) just now for $13.49 too.

    I went to the Ollie's nearest me for the first time in forever hoping to find a SS Battle Damaged Megatron like other people have said. No luck, my Ollie's toy department was a trainwreck and everything they have is years out of date. I kid you not they had starter decks for the Mega Man NT Warrior card game from 2005. Literally stuff that's been lost in a dark dusty corner of a warehouse for 15 years. I was almost tempted to buy some just for the WTF factor.

    The higher class Aldi near me had one case of ER Deluxes, 13.49. Got an Arcee.

    I just picked up an Arcee from one in Snellville at $13.
    They may just be different per store.

    Were those cards put out by decipher? Ollie's has also had some of the Star Trek CCG which I think is even older. Must have bought out an old warehouse.

    Then there's me just waiting for Ross to put out more figures. I got a bunch of the Siege stuff that way due to me not being interested in the line from the start (shame, some of the figures are actually good... Mirage and Red Alert going to be replaced next year tho), and with me having gotten all the ER retail figures, and all that I've recently found there just being either BotBot packs or the discounted Sharkticon packs that survived the Christmas shopping somehow, I just want to know when the store'll be worth my time again.

    Ditto for TJ Maxx, except I've had even less purchases there and the only things I find there (if I do actually find something) are the Air Strike Patrol.

    Same here. I remember seeing Chromia and the Siege line at Walmart but passed on them. Fast forward 1.5 years later and I’m trying to get all the figs I can for WFC. Ross’s been amazing this year for TF figures. I’ve gotten maybe 7 Siege characters

    While Ross (and other discounters) do carry toys year round, they get two big pushes each year: in mid November for Christmas, and in the weeks leading up to Easter (the 2nd biggest toy selling time of the year).

    Couldn't find battle masters at Ollie's, but I picked up Airwave at Aldi's which was the only TF on the shelf (was hoping to find an Allicon).

    If you decide to part with that Siege Red Alert you got from Ross, PM me. I think I could probably use him for an upcoming custom.

    I just found Siege Wave 2 Battle Masters at Tuesday Morning. 1 Aimless and 1 Pteraxadon, $3.99 each. They also had Wave 3 Micromasters (Roadhandler/Swindler, Topshot/Flak, Blackjack/Hyperdrive) for $7.99 each.

    And some Ross dress for less stores are clearancing the leftovers...
    Bot bot sets now at $4
    MCX GOT sets clearanced close to what target's 70% off was.

    Some items at 5belows:

    Target has started clearancing some Bot bots and MLs (although some stores might only be at the 30% off now, and not yet at the 50% or 70% off marks).

    Haha same here as well, I pretty much got most of the siege deluxe, voyager and leader classes from Ross, I figured at that price you really can't beat it, and the savings I basically threw at the harder to get exclusive ones from Ebay, so win win I guess you could say haha...
