    Damn, wish I could find an Overlord. Checked 4-5 Marshalls/TJ Maxx over the past few weeks multiple times with no luck. My nephew requested Decepticons for his birthday (and sadly I already bought him a bunch of Autobots). Sadly right now there aren't many "classic" ones on the shelves and a cheap Overlord was right in my wheelhouse for him. I'll keep checking with hope next week after snowmageddon passes through our area.

    reminds me of Christmas 2017 when i was at Target, and looking at Transformers. a lady was shopping for her kid and asked me for advice, "he wants a Decepticon..." she got the kid Octane.

    I always had the angry parents talking to me on the aisles "my ex-husband bought him this damn thing for christmas, and I can't figure it out". Kind of the situation I am in with my nephew (without the divorced parents). The adults aren't into helping him with them, so he is figuring them out still and breaks a few/loses pieces. I figure overlord in the $13-$15 range is a substantial looking figure, fairly easy to transform (since the other options would be something like Flywheels or Siege Megatron), and I wouldn't feel as bad with him losing bits.

    On impulse I bought a second Bumblebee set (though the tape is cut on one side) today while looking for Overlord. Searching for this thing is probably going to cost me more than just buying a figure at retail with all my impulse buys, but I am also hunting new gym hats.

    i hear you on the parents and help...i snarkily laughed to my wife, "in 1984 when Transformers came out my parents wouldn't buy me one, it took my sister buying me two minibots to start getting me any. and what do they get our 2-year-old? an ages 5+ Bumblebee..."

    which our 4-year-old has basically taken, despite getting his own Bumblebee. thankfully my kids have me to help police up parts that otherwise would get lost.

    My TJ Maxx only just got Overlord in today. So they're still filtering into some stores.

    Sweet, I'll be on the prowl again if snowmageddon passes soon. We don't deal with snow very well up here. Luckily I still have a couple weeks till his birthday.

    I'm gonna swing by my TJMaxx. For $15, I will make room for Overlord on my shelf.

    I just found one at Family Dollar and while the price was marked $17 it rang up 50% off so only $8.50 YMMV

    I wonder how Overlord ended up so overproduced. I know he was a tail of the line figure but he wasn't impossible to get at retail and Ollie's got in a ton of them I'd say each store got atleast 20 of him if not more, yet somehow there's still left overs to end up at tj Maxx too. I just saw 4 of them at the Tridelphia WV TJ Maxx yesterday. Today I found a single Bumblebee set T the Zanesville OH store

    A lot of areas never got stock of anything past Black Shadow. Unfortunately Overlord is likely just another victim of retailers not doing their job.

    Well, it hasn't been nearly as long since Optimal came out as Overlord. Overlord was just as rare this time last year.

    Just picked up Overlord at Marshalls this afternoon for $13. Thanks for the heads-up.

    I don't think he was overproduced at all. What happened was the herd mentality of the fandom. We were halfway through POTP when he started showing up at Ollies so Titans Return was old news and therefore crap. The same thing happened to Trypticon.

    This was my area. I never saw Overlord until he hit in mass 45 strong at every Ollies I went to. And now it seems Ollies had so many they sold their remaining stock to TJ Marshalls.
