That's awesome! I love it!
People shouldn't be that stupid. Desperation gives way to it, I guess...
Just bought 1 each of Optimus and Doubledealer from my Ollie's to sell on here. Offers being accepted.
I got you a dollar.
A funny story would have been if he got jacked in the parking lot.
Meanwhile in the real world, here on the west coast, Ross, TJ Maxx, DD's and Marshall's hasn't had anything noteworthy since last November.
I was passing by an Ollie’s about 40 minutes from my house. That Ollie’s is a newer location and way bigger, more stocked, better, and cleaner than the one I normally go to that is near my house. I’ve been to that particular Ollie’s a couple times before.
I saw no Transformers at all. I asked the cashier if they had any transformers over the weekend for the advertised sale. The cashier said that over the weekend before they had opened, a guy was outside waiting and he came in at opening and he bought out their entire stock of dozens of Leader Optimus Prime and Double Dealer.
I actually saw OP and DD at my local Ollies two weeks ago, but passed because I already got them for close to this price. Then a friend went a couple days later and said the store was cleaned out, and there were reports of someone going around scooping them up.
While 50% off is a good price for a fan, buying dozens at $20+tax each still seems like A LOT of money to tie up and sit on to wait for the collectible price to go up... Even to resell on eBay at full retail, after fees and shipping you might be making $15-$20 each.
Bb w1.5 8p showing up at Ross again. Seen em at two stores.
I'm sorry, but what the fuck even is "Bb w1.5 8p?"
Who writes like that?
Did you grow up in this household?
I get Bumblebee wave 1.5. And then *shrug*.
Botbots Wave 1.5 8-Packs
Makes no sense. I checked eBay and the average sold/completed auction for a new ER Doubledealer in the last month is $40 USD with shipping. $20 Ollie's ER Doubledealer minus ~$5.00 ebay seller fees and ~$8.00 USPS shipping costs according to the 1.1 lb package weight and the seller will be making a cool $7.00 per sale.
You guys wanna see some serious shit, go look up completed eBay listings for Siege Amazon Skywarp, Earthrise Drige & Ramjet, Earthrise Skywarp & Thundercracker, Earthrise Thrust, Ratchet and Paradon Medic, Sentry & accessory pack or Prowl and Ironhide. HOLY FUCK you're looking at over a grand to own all those.
I hope Hasbro eventually makes more to meet demand because JESUS FUCK new toys shouldn't be scalped this hard this soon.
Good thing for me I don't give a shit about any of the above mentioned toys so I don't have to sweat about wanting them. I'm a simple man. A Prime, his accompanying Megatron, and I'm usually good.
Saw that tonight, holy crap. That Barricade/Counterpunch 2pk is creeping up too. Already uo to $70.
I can’t believe hasbro doesn’t rerelease these sets. They’re relatively recent so mold degradation is limited, and with things selling at that price there’s demand.
I’m not saying everything has to get to Ollie’s and TJ Maxx, but the stuff folks are talking about in this thread is nuts. Just nuts.
That's crazy. The price is high because people are still buying them. If everyone stops buying it, scalpers will be forced to lower the prices to move it. SMH...don't even get me started on how they use sketchy ways to buy cases at a time.
Good news. Ollies is coming to Wichita finally...
I picked up an extra Prime, thinking of painting his eyes yellow. Has anyone done that with their ER Prime?
Yup, not hard at all. Split the head apart and the eyes are right there.
Why does his head have bullets in it?
