  1. I just thought it would be fun to post a topic on good deals that anyone have gotten on Transformer toys. I thought about this as recently I won an auction on eBay for a MOSC with sealed weapons and stickers in an opened box in very good shape(no cuts or rips, just cut tape and slight flap crease) g1 gnaw for 120. Considering a mint complete opened gnaw goes for around 110 I thought this was a great deal. Also before anyone says it I know the difference between a real one and a ko. I one of the best deals was about 8 years ago (do bear in mind transformers were not as expensive then but still not cheap). I was in Walmart buying some ennergon Transformers. Then a old man behind me noticed what I was buying and started a conversation asking if I was buying this for myself or a child. I told him they were for me and said I was a collector he then said he was a collector to after a talk for a while determining that he actually knew what he was talking about I found out that he had collected Transformers since his son was a child. He told me he was looking to sell his collection or at least some of it to a collector who would appreciate it and not sell them on eBay. He wasn't out to make money he said he just wanted to make someone happy. I was 22 at the time. We talked for a while I talk to himabout what I was looking for and then we agreed to meet one day for me to buy them. I paid 350 and got a mib with inserts complete jetfire, and mib one insert near complete jetfire, mib no window shockwave, near complete figures scourge, cyclonus, grimlock ( in good shape), pointblank, ironhide ( in ok shape), two swoops, galvatron, chromdome ( in ok shape no guns), complete figures sluggslinger, misfire, swoop, autobot clones, wreakgar, reflector, I also got about ten boxes for a few of the figures with no inserts( I know I had wreakgar the clones and grimlock I didn't keep them as I only like boxes with inserts. All the figures were mint or near mint unless stated otherwise. I didn't asked for half of the stuff that he just gave me because he wanted someone to enjoy them. Even seven years ago reflector shockwave and the deception target masters cost over 100 each so this deal was out of this world. For some reason or another I never was able to get him to sell me anymore we set up another meet but he didn't show. So what deals do you all have to share.
  2. Yesterday I got springer and blitzwing in the Hagerstown md target. I then canceled my bigbadtoystore order and shipped my 3 months worth of loot. I was waiting on the triple changers to ship it. Soon I'll have my fort max, Alicon, Iron Man legends wave 1 and 2, the first two fansproject stunticons, and finally the repainted fansproject bruticus set (to go with the lame Asian exclusive bruticus I bought in January, the month the fansproject set was originally plained to come out). That's going to be a big box. Last week I got a (what I belive to be) a really good deal on ebay. And original (not the ko I know the difference) MOSC with unopened sticker and weapons in a opened box, also in great shape, g1 gnaw for 120 shipped.
  3. I got the Taraka Soundwave and pre ordered rumble and the rest. I canceled them when this was announced as for the same price and the Taraka minions I can get all of them and a second Soundwave (that way I can have one in robot mode and one is tape mode). Also can't wait to Acid storm I'm a sucker for that mold. Wish we would get a Skywarp but I guess Wal-Mart exclusive rites to a MP Skywarp is messing that up.
  4. Well the classics line is what comes to my mind and why I posed the question. I know the G1 toy did, but I don't think i really paid much attention to the cartoon variance. I would expect that he would come with them, but they be removable. I guess we'll soon find out. :D Yeah I'm pretty sure the classics line used the shoulder missiles just so that way they could just reuse the mold and repaint it to bluestreak. I was one when the cartoon came out and can still remember having a Prowl and always wondering why it came with missiles on the shoulder when he didn't have them in the cartoon. I wonder if they will include them as Removeible as some people have suggested. I can't really think of any other accessories the figure would come with otherwise. In the old cartoon prowl and BlueStreak were kind of just background characters. I can't wait to see what this figure looks like and then I plan to sell all my BT's and alternators.
  5. Prowl better not come with missiles on his shoulders. Because in the G1 cartoon Prowl did not have shoulder Missiles. BlueStreak and smokescreen did however. That's how in season one prowl and BlueStreak looked different, besides color of course.
  6. well I posted this about 40 minutes go about this being on the website and in stock. I placed an order everything appeared to go through and look good but there was no actual order placed and the item has been removed from the website.
  7. Well I don't know what is going on but the item has been removed from the website and my order did not go through.
  8. As the title says masterpiece thundercracker is currently in stock and on sale for 55.99 with free shipping on toys are us.com. Act fast there are only around 350 on the website. Good luck
  9. When you wake up from that dream, let me know. There is a better chance of Hasbro fixing its distribution problems first LOL If only...on BOTH! Seriously, though, I might consider figures around $30, $40, maybe even $50 a piece. I'll even pay over $100 for a vintage piece. But $600 ($100/ea) to build an awesome@$$ 'Hercules'? I love it like the next, but that crosses the line from hardcore into CrazyLand! Two questions come to mind: What kind of job do you have? And do you have a family, house, bills, car, etc.? If you can still do it with all of the above...more power to YOU! :thumb How i got my hercules was. I waited till all the figures came out then searched eBay for a opened set. Then bam got him for 480.00 shipped. He's my favorite figure. I can't wait to get superion to he looks so good. I'll wait again and try and get a opened set. Like with herc I just hope hasbro or taraka doesn't put a stop to it till they all come out.
  10. Posted this in the movie figure thread but figured I would post it hear to (to good of a deal I just have to share it as much as I can) Long story; Wasn't plaining on getting any of these untill stores clearanced them (money, and know that do to the amount of them one day they will be cheap, also don't feel the toys do the movie justice, manly money), but still wanted to see them (manly Blackout and Ironhide cuz in the pics I've seen they look sweet). Checked thoughout the week to find a store who put them out early, and on thrusday ran into the Arundel Mills Wal Mart at 7:00 am and they stocked the Deluxe and Voyagers by accident, and they all were all on a end cap marked 9.96. I grabbed Ironhide, Blackout and Starscream (cuz for 10 bucks I got to get them and Starscream is well Starscream). While they wouldn't sell them to me on thrusday a very kind manager put them for hold for me in the back at the 9.96 price point and I was able to pick up them today for 9.96 :yay :yay :yay :yay :tfgrin
  11. Classics Sky Warp and Ultra Magnus Target Hagerstown 7:00 pm 1/24 Still had 3 on the shelf when I left :clap
  12. Classics JETFIRE :clap :clap :eek :eek 11/21 Wal Mart Ellecot City 5:00 pm Only one they had. No Grims or Mirages though
  13. Titanium Scourge 10/27 Fredrick TRU 6:00 pm Sorry only one they had, but I did leave Op Primal (can't justify getting him when I have the original.)
  14. I finally found all the Classics in stock Wal Mart Hagerstown 10/8 6:45 pm They still had at lest one more of each, two of some. :thumb
  15. I was origianlly gonna get him but the colors and the price turned me off (and the fact I really want a WIE) so I figure I'll wait and hope for Hasbro to bring him out here (and hope for G1 colors but if not I'll still buy him for a little less).
  16. Yes it did but after the 100 I spent on Marvel toys, I'm not too torn up. Plus they will be back very soon. And I need time for my check to be depostited anyway. Otherwise I don't have the spending money for them today anyhoo. I'll post when I see them again.
  17. Transforrmers Classics, and Movie Optimus I found them Boscovs Fedrick (off of 40) 9/30, 10/1 :clap :clap I saw Movie Optimus (crap the stacks aren't even cromed). The sales lady (who got me out cases of the new Marvel Legends and X-Men figures) told me that she had sold out of the Classics on Saturday (saw the spots for them) :tdown but will be getting more as they are stocking up for Christmas :clap (soon very soon they well me mine). :clap O and all the Classics were bought by the same person (more than likely a Ebay seller).
  18. Micro Masters Superion 9/23 KB Valley Mall 2:00 pm Still had one set left :thumb
  19. Titanium Jetfire and Thundercracker 9/22 Wal Mart Arundel Mills 7:30 am None left I got them both.
  20. Alternators Camshaft Wal-Mart Arundell Mills 8/3 7:10 am Bought him and and Prime and Marage for me and a buddy. Best news is that the price of Alts at Wal-Mart has been cut to 15.00 so SWEET new Alts for cheaper than I was expecting.
  21. Did your have the same chipping problems that mine did.
  22. Have you seen Alt Prime or Mirage in our neck of the woods at all yet? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Not in Fredrick but I did get them at Arundel Mills Mall Wal-Mart as per pervious post. Alt Prime was in the Hagerstown Wal-Mart a while back (I didn't get him but a scalper I know did), but last week they were still overstocked with the Rics and Rolls from that assortment. O Atomic Comics in Hagerstown has the Titaniums but I don't know the price (know it's prob about 8.00 more than retail). Hope this helps
  23. bASTARD!! :D <{POST_SNAPBACK}> YUP :clap3
  24. Titanium 6" Prime and Megatron TRU Fredrick 2:00 pm 7/20 Sorry only ones they had. This figures look great but have to say there chiptastic just look at them funny and chip (they are also incredibly covered in twisty ties so it near imposible not to chip them on the way out). These are so sweet.
  25. Cybertron Quickmix 7/13 Wal-Mart 7:00 am Arundel Mills Only one they had. Cybertron Giant Planet Mini Cons and Ransack GTS 7/13 Wal-Mart 6:00 pm Fredrick off 70 only ones they had of the mini cons were hidden (good thing I saw GTS and looked though the bottom shelfs). I left Ransack (just can't afford repaints of figures that don't really excite me, now classics am gonna buy all of them)
