    They seemed to have started the cleaning out everything sale...

    Wow, some sale... some prices are higher than eBay...

    Pins for $40??

    Some of these prices are nuts... Although it looks like that Botcon Megatron/Waspinator set sold out real fast.

    I'm sure I was beaten to the punch, but of course, didn't see an open thread.
    Lots of these prices look ridiculous, and bit unsettling they are playing the "let's see who is impulsive enough to give us MAX dollars instead of waiting for discounts.

    Some interesting stuff in there. 4 of the 5 members of Nexus. Runabout and Runamok (one under Club exclusives, the other under Botcon). A few pieces from Game of Deceptions. The prices aren't great yet, but apparently there will weekly discounting (that is, in another week, the prices will drop 10%, then a week after another 10%, etc). Everything must go and all that, so it'll be interesting to see what prices motivate everyone to jump in.

    Side note: I don't need another Fractyl, but I'd be okay having a second Paradron Medic, so if the price on that gets low enough . . .

    That whole weekly discounting thing is interesting. Makes it a sadistic game of chicken on some of those items.

    I almost want Lifeline again, but I'll have to see... there's a few pieces I'd still like, like Nova Prime, but also won't be sad if I miss them either... Guess we'll see...

    EDIT: WOW, they raised some of the prices from the last few sales, in an attempt to get people to grab them for more than they could've a month ago. I understand the desire to sell this stuff and make money, but that's lame.

    Well, they WILL be knocking 10% off every week... but yeah it's lame to bump them back up.

    There's stuff I would actually pick up from them like the Botcon 2016 set but it's a matter of "will it sell out before it reaches the price I'd love to snag it for"

    Here's what bugs me... Prices are near eBay ranges, then say discounts each week on items they may have five or a hundred of... Begs the question why hold them back until now?

    Did I get a news credit for this?

    Those prices are damn insulting. No wonder they are going under.

    But they thanked us for their support! Give them more money to say "your welcome!"

    A couple of things I wouldn't mind owning, but oh boy those prices forget about it. Not bothered if I miss out.

    Could be they just didn't sell nearly as many as they thought they would originally. Then again they could just be pulling it out of their bum and they don't actually have nearly as many of any item as they are claiming.

    Yeah, I had been considering grabbing a few carded Depth Charges for $7.50 a few weeks ago, now they're $35 each... Most of the other things I was looking at are now double what they were a month ago, so I'll be waiting at least a month the prices are even close to what I wanted to pay before, probably after Halloween before I actually buy anything...

    Picked up some of the signed Transformers Prime (the 3 kids plus June) prints. For $18 and single digit quantities remaining I thought it was worth jumping on.

    Armada Skywarp is now $71?! Was I dreaming or was he $40 something a month or so ago?

    Okay, so the ENTIRE store is discounted 10% now. So probably to do that, they had to remove discounts from everything in order to do a blanket 10%... but that means things that were discounted 50% a month ago are back to 10% now, and I'm not gonna order 1 thing at a time either, everything I want needs to be discounted or I'll just pass on it...

    They raised the price up on everything closer to the relatively-arbitrary "MSRP". 10% off now...and then an additional 10% off every week or so until the end of the year.

    In other words, I'll check back in five weeks from now...

    Item count down from 331 to 329

    One of those was Impactor.
