    Just a heads up everyone, just saw the deluxes at aldi today that are priced at $9.99. They had vehicon, wheeljack, ratchet, airachnid, hotshot, deadend and maybe a few others. Not bad considering everywhere else they sell for 15.99.

    Just saw them today, too.
    I find it amazing that a discount grocery store has a better selection than the local Wal Mart and Target combined.

    I know a lot of people paid a premium for Vehicons not too long ago, and no offense intended, but I just have to smile at the silliness of spending around $50 for one when they're now readily available for $10.
    Somewhat understandable considering the horrible distribution and the whole FE debacle (I myself paid a premium for FE voyagers and now they're available for $30), but this truly is another case of patience being a virtue.

    You've gotta be F***ing kidding me, Aldi's is selling Prime TF's?
    I'll have to call the one near me (by near I mean about three miles away on the other side of a bridge) and see if they're carrying the figures when I go pick up my Next issues of RG1 and MTME from the Comic Store in that same plaza. Do the new issues come out THIS Thursday or Next Thursday?

    Wait, Aldi's a thing in the US?

    Got my hopes up that it would be the UK chain in question.

    Got two Vehicons at Aldi today. I'll probably check the other one tomorrow. Nice inexpensive way to army build.
