    I really hate that just like Jetfire, Magnus is already on Clearance.
    Why? Because that means they get snapped by either people who buy multiples or scalpers.

    WTF Walmart?

    Just the way it goes man. It's only scalped if buyers pay what they ask for.

    None of my local Walmarts had him or even had a discount tag on the shelf.

    My Walmart had 5 or 6. None of them sold at full price. Walmart couldn't give this piece of shit away & they knew it. Everything else was selling.

    After they went on clearance. I bought 1. The next day they were all wiped out. I hated it so I returned it. Today the one I returned is sitting there. It will be gone soon enough. But it would never sell at full price. Not around here anyway.

    Besides Ultra Magnus, has anyone's walmart.com order for the deluxes or voyagers moved yet? I don't have any on pre-order myself but I'm surprised they haven't popped up available online yet since the stores have been getting them for a while now.

    Not really surprised on Magnus already hitting clearance though. The disappointing repaint aside, the fact that this was in a closed box with no indication what was inside (I still don't get why this is any kind of spoiler) was a poor decision. We all know what is inside, but I can't see parents unfamiliar with the line wanting to lay down $60 for a toy that they can't even see on the box

    Exactly! Why was this a regular retail release? Seems to me this would have been perfect for a TakaraTomyMall exclusive. Aimed at adult collectors that knew what they were buying. And it sucks so bad that nobody would have been upset if they missed it. Unlike Nemesis Prime or the Seacons.

    Well that is true. But to someone not in the know, it' could be just generic box art and it still doesn't give them a clear picture of the toy inside or what accessories he might come with.

    Mirage, Scrapface, Hotlink, and Megatron, are supposed to come out next week, for those that did the pre-order on walmart.com.


    True. Or they could check walmart.com and see what's inside the box.

    That's why you read the words on the box.

    We're talking about regular parents that don't know shit about Transformers. You need to stop thinking like a Transformers fan/collector & think like your average Walmart shopper. Those are the people that will see a $60 white box & that's all. If they see a picture of Magnus you seriously think they're gonna know what's in the box? You give people too much credit.

    Any guesses on the black play-doh?

    Sure, it hides three energon cubes but any guesses why they chose play-doh over a black plastic bag? Think it will play into the series? Did they just think there needed to be several ounces of clay added to justify the higher price?

    I just don't see really soft modeling clay being the ideal accessory for transformers where it can get everywhere and hinder the primary gimmick of the line.

    Maybe they just wanted to get rid of some extra black play-doh?

    I’ll have to find the link again but read an article that was interviewing someone from the Netflix TV series, he was asked when in June the show was coming out and all he would say was it will come out between June and the end of the year WTF

    Picked up Mirage yesterday. I didnt get the Autobot version so this is my first time with the mold. Hes real nice but be wary. VERY tight joints and ports on this guy. I hate to use hot water to complete the transformstion and even then basically strongarmed it with a prayer. Head joint is tight too.

    Product Description shows:
    "DIG FOR ENERGON: 3 vibrant pink Energon cubes are hidden inside a compound for fans to dig out. Also comes with Battlefield Rung figure with epic Energon-infused deco"

    So, it is assumed that they try to dig up energon reserves in the Netflix series. The compound is to be associated with digging energon from the ground or a place where they lay.
