    Was in TJ Max yesterday and saw a Cyberverse Optimus Maximus for $24.

    WTH? That seemed a little fast to be hitting discount stores.

    Yeah, it's at Marshall's too.

    As-is, it's cheaper to get it at Target or Wal-Mart. But... ah well.

    They overproduced it when they assembled the first one. That thing is garbage.

    Almost got one for free from my neighbor's dumpster.

    Left it there. Didn't want to take it from its home.

    Not surprised, considering how quickly they went to discount at Target.

    Anyone have an idea if the head is hollow enough for other Tf's to wear it? It's a pretty cool headsculpt.
