    Saw one of these mini statue TFs at a target end cap & decided to price check it just in case...

    ...aside from the weird name, surprised to see these being clearanced not long after starting to sell them.


    For those that like getting mcx figures to scale with your TF figures, Ross seems to have stocked up on these

    Walmart had 2 types of halo sets clearanced to $15.

    ...and Ross restocked on these 3.75” fortnite figures

    You might be out of luck this year. One of the usually big Transformers holiday selling time at Ross is Easter and no new ER or Studio Series Transformers were found at Ross this year for this month. Lately the only Transformers found at Ross are the Botbots.

    I’ve been at ollies, and I’ve only seen the crappy cyberverse half transforming things. No playdoh magnus, not starscream (sadly), and no doubledealer (sadly).

    It would probably be closer to $200, just thinking about the price of Trypticon... Ollie's had truckloads of those at $50, with tables stacked to the ceiling. They probably paid $5 apiece for them at that volume.

    Custom of Egg-Fu (from DC's 52 Series). I built it back around 2010, got a sidebar in Toyfare Magazine one month.

    I wish they'd make that deal available to other people. Embarrassment Earth was trying to get $140 plus shipping from "wholesale" clients back in the day. They would _never_ provide shipping quotes so it was always a nasty surprise whenever it came in stock (often months after everybody else had put them on clearance). Final price would've been around $175 per unit, shipped bare and beat to Hell. That time they just drilled you even harder by putting the damned things on sale for $75 with free shipping on the retail side.

    I know this isn't reddit/imgur but...

    Username checks out @WishfulThinking.

    Man I should've said **** it and ordered two (versus none). Made the second either great trade fodder or a way to recoup the costs quick.

    Holy shit. I need to get my extra Centurion and Paradron sets up for sale ASAP. I could fund an MP Defensor with that and be pretty much done with that collection.

    Not sure what you mean. That's not me in the picture nor is it me thinking he actually found one, if you reread my post. I was curious what people thought...douche act or funny prank?

    Definitely the former. I don't think people should be stupid enough to fall for it, but it's just not okay to prey on people's ignorance for the sake of a joke.

    My local Ollie's at the time got in 3 pallets full of Trypticons. Ollie's is hit or miss with their deals - I've seen a lot of smaller items they sell only $1-$2 off retail pricing. Their Transformers are at a max at 66% off retail pricing like with the Trypticon but not always. The netflix Ultra Magnus was 50% off and ER Optimus Prime/Double Dealer were 60% off. No matter what still a good deal.

    I doubt that Ollie's would only pay $5 per Trypticon - Ollie's isn't even a nationwide or worldwide store chain. Yes, they got a great deal on it and cheap but not $5 dollars. Dollar Tree makes on average .35 cents per dollar spent at their stores while Walmart/Target makes on average .24 cents per dollar.

    I'll just add, the Ollie's Army coupons are fairly frequent for me (good for another 10-20%) and after Xmas they take I think another 25% or so off toys. I think I ended up with like 18$ in the Netflix Ultra Magnus.

    yep. I mentioned previously that I got 2 Netflix Ultra Magnus at Ollie’s for $21.25 each and Earthrise Optimus Prime for $10 dollars. With all the coupons, no way Trypticon would cost Ollie’s $5. There are only 389 Ollie’s location in US. Plus, not every single Ollie’s got in all same amount of Transformers. Stock varies widely per store. My local Ollie’s only got in 2 Double Dealer and 2 Optimus Prime while I know other Ollie’s received 25-50 or each.

    Meant it as humor man. So definitely humourous prank. It's amusing you are pointing out a post where people believe this dude is picking up Haslab Unicron at a discount joint. Literally wishful thinking. Hence why I said your username checks out.
