Went into a couple of TRU stores this past weekend in the Los Angeles/Orange County area and saw a lot of the Animated Roll Out Command Optimus Prime on clearance for $25. There was no stickers or signs, but if you go scan them that is what they will come up, which is about 50% off the original retail price. ;)

UK Toys R Us stores have the Whirl/Bludgeon Metalikato two-pack for £15 - not a bad price for a Voyager and a Deluxe, I'm pretty tempted for Whirl alone.

also, asda in kings heath, birmingham has 2-packs of the 2007 movie cybertron/energon scout repaints for £10.50. not bad for two scout class figs. i got a pack called the data war which contained clocker and hardtop and war of the waves which contained storm surge and air raid.

also sainsburys at the maypole, birmingham are still flogging cybertron scattorshot, repugnus and ransack gts for about a tenner for all three. these and the above packs are being sold under the universe banner representing the cybertron line.

sainsburys maypole (last time i checked) also had rotf deluxe toys for £7 and voyagers for £11 if anyones interested.



birmingham comic shops, toyshops and supermarkets have all received rotf scouts brakedown, sonar and sky stalker. brakedown is definetly a fun mould to transform. the entertainer is also selling the 25th anniversary prime for £20 now(i got it when it was 50). also supreme animated prime for £30.

Toys R Us has buy one get one half off this week. And, in a shocking move for TRU, they actually have product on their website before it's old news in the stores. Scout class Hubcap, Generations Thrust, Deluxe Ironhide, and some of the new Powercore guys to name a few. I was impressed!

Not outstanding, but Animated deluxes are half RRP in Matalan, at least the one on Merry Hill. Older stock mostly. Jetstorm/Jetfire for ten quid (like the alt-modes, but not the robots, personally). Also cheap Marvel crossover TFs.

Wal-Mart has dropped deluxes down to $9.00, making them only 3 cents more than scouts. Apparently this is part of their pre-Christmas early price drop that will probably last through the Christmas season. Good timing with some nice waves coming out!

I was in a Real supermarket in Braunschweig (Germany) on Tuesday and they had ROTF / HFTD / whatever it is Leader Starscream reduced from 59.99€ to 19.99€.

Any Starscream fans in Germany should check out their local Real!

Super Target and Greatlands Target in my area has the big Battle Ops Bumblebee on clearance right now for $39.99, probably a good price for someone if they actually want it. I passed it up, not a fan of movie-verse toys, but thought I should mention the sale for those who are.

Argos have a few ROTF figures knocked down:

- ROTF Supreme Devastator - £49.99
- ROTF Leader Optimus Prime - £24.99
- ROTF Legends Devastator - £9.99
- ROTF Scouts - £2.99
- ROTF Stealth Force Optimus Prime - £12.99
- ROTF Stealth Force Deluxe - £6.99
- ROTF RPM Single Pac - £1.99
- ROTF Bumblebee Battle Track - £12.99
- ROTF Bumblebee Helmet - £16.99

http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/store ... evance&p=1

Is Surpreme Devastator worth half price, or is he really too s#%$e? That's the cheapest I've seen it since release anywhere near me, and I figure it is probably approaching last chance in stores, and don't want to find myself looking for it at eBay prices in the future. The size appeals for Legends displays at least - although I'd need to track down Legends Skids and Mudflap then...

No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

The TJ Maxx near me had a pile of Animated Wreck-Gar and Atomic Lugnut for $13 for anyone who missed that wave and wants one. PM me if you want one shipped at cost.

Just been in Tesco in Lockerbie, and they have a massive hodgepodge of TFs from all recent lines (ROTF, HFTD, PCC, RTS). All are on sale, except Scouts and PCC basics.

- Legend £2.00 or two for £3.00
- Deluxe £6.97
- Voyager £9.99
- PCC Combiner set £10.99

I imagine other Tescos have similar deals, which may include Leaders if they stock them (none in Lockerbie).

Not totally outstanding, but Morrisons in Hamilton have just filled a huge shelf with stacks of RTS Deluxes at £8.00. They have Wreck-Gar, Bumblebee, Perceptor and Laser Rod Prime in my local store just now.

£8.00 a deluxe certainly beats £8.99 for a DOTM Cyberverse Commander!
