    Has anyone spotted any special deals for TFs on BF? I've been scanning the Big Box ads and can't find any for TFs. Not like last year, with PCC combiner + basic for $10 on Walmart or DOTM Voyager for $10 and DOTM 2x deluxe for $9

    Was refraining from buying any Prime toys aside from the Vehicon and Dreadwing because I was waiting for deals like these. I would've thought it would be the chance for retailers to unload the walls of deluxes shelfwarming. Looks like TFs aren't hot toys anymore, at least until when the next movie comes out.

    Other than the weaponizers(?) going from 30 to 23, nada.

    I for one didn't find ANY of those PCC two-packs last year. Even if there are some special deals this year, don't count on your store actually having anything.

    I stood around a pallet for an hour last year just to get the Spastic / Overrun set. It only took about 10 minutes for the whole pallet to get cleaned out...

    To answer the original question though, I haven't seen anything yet...

    They should just give away free RID Bumblebees at the door.

    Bee with a $5 dollar off coupon. I see people refusing him for free.

    If the prices are going down for those, maybe it's time for me to pick up a weaponizer Bumblebee. I got Optimus Prime first when he came out because I like him way more than Bumblebee.

    Yeah, the prices for those are going down, but I am not entirely sure if it is for the holiday season or because sales are not great right now. It's sad to think that our little plastic robot buddies won't be part of the sale time fun this year. That being said, there has been no shortage of higher to top tier figs online! :D

    Yeah, saw the WM ad had only Kreo's. Checked last years ad, however, and no mention of TFs there, but we got the PCC deal. This made me want to ask if anyone here might know (employee/management/etc)

    If you want one, get one this holiday season. The only reason they're that cheap is everyone's pricematching TRU, who has it for $23. Once the holiday rush is over, TRU will jack it up again to over MSRP

    I'll bet all they'll be offering is Deluxe Prime 2 packs or something to that effect.

    Yea, someone who works at a target (may have been in our state's sighting thread) said that he saw that his Target was getting in DOTM Value packs again on the last delivery that came to his store.

    God, I wish Australia had Black Friday! This sounds like fun! Especially for a shopping addict like me...

    Target's ad just dropped, no TFs on it. Hopefully we still get something, like deluxe 2-packs or Voyagers for 10 bucks

    Over on the Allspark, a Sideswipe/Armor Topspin and a Roadbuster/Starscream "Special Value Offer" bonus pack were found. I'd link to it, but the Allspark boards are offline at the moment.

    Yes, the bonus packs were available last year...the combinations I mentioned, to my knowledge, weren't.

    Here's what was available in 2011:
    Shmax.com: Browsing Products by Toyline in United States > Dark of the Moon > MechTech > Special Value Offer 2-Pack

    So, yeah, those combos (Sideswipe/Armor Topspin and a Roadbuster/Starscream) are new...plus, barrelks reported that Target is also getting them in for this year, which I even quoted in my post...
