    Picked up Optimus Maximus on clearance from Target today for $18.98.

    Guess Prime stuff is already going on Clearance!!!

    Speaking of Prime Clearance Walgreens in my area had Clearanced them out the last 2 months for $5.49 a piece.

    Prime Optimus Masks are also on Clearance at Target for $12.98

    Anyone else seen Clearance Prime Merchandise?

    That is a sale price not a permanent markdown or clearance.

    Makes sense. With the exception of the Skyquake wave, everything has been released. PRID is over, WFC Generations is taking over. We'll probably see Wave 2 and 3 of deluxes on the shelves soon, with voyagers shortly afterwards.

    Yes, is it a sale, or clearance? There's a difference...

    I'm hoping that the Starhammer goes on sale. I want the Wheeljack, but the single-carded version doesn't appeal in the slightest.

    The Starhammer and Drill have been on clearance at some Walmarts YMMV for several months now that I remember. However some Walmarts raised the prices of these to $21.96.

    I picked both up earlier this year and they are awesome sets.

    No WalMarts near me, but thanks for the heads up. I'm hoping for... I dunno, $13. Same price as the Ark is currently going for at Marshalls etc.

    That is how much they were asking $13

    I picked up one Starhammer for $13 at a Walmart.

    Sorta off-topic, but I just saw Wave 2 today and the Voyagers are out in Australia.
    Agree with ya, though. Is there anything that's NOT released, save for Skyquake? Can't think of any, which is disappointing, since there is no Deluxe Smokescreen, or Breakdown.

    I hope BH comes through, at least for Smokey, especially since it appears there's a bunch of new molds, and at the least, extreme retools.

    I also saw Optimus Maximus on clearance at Target today.After looking at him closer though,this thing looks like a real turd.I don't think I'd even buy it for $10.

    I got TF Prime Deluxe Dead End on clearance for $5.49 at my local Walgreens 3 months ago. They had a few RiD Cliffjumpers too for the same price.

    Optimus Maximus at my local Target on clearance for $16.98. Still not interested even at that price.
