Austin and I get pretty excited about finding Generations Figures and Kre-O sets discounted at close out stores. One of our many date days or nights are as follows: Some good grub, (preferably meat and potato based) and a few trips to different stores looking for Kre-Os and Generations figures. Sometimes Barbies and Legos if the price is right! The Kre-O sets are not cheap and have some pretty neat unique pieces, not to mention Kreons! Many Transformers collectors know about going to closeout stores like Ross, Marshall's, T.J. Maxx, Tuesday Morning and Big Lots to find Transformers figures that they may have missed while they were at the other retailers. Sometimes you get lucky and find some stuff. Other times, there are opened boxes with stolen Kreons and roughed up packaging. T.J. Maxx and Marshall's tend to be on a cleaner and more organized side, so it's easier to find things. Ross is great, but it's more of a crap shoot. Many of these stores do have the movie toys, so any movie toy collectors should hit up these stores too!
This past week Toys R Us had a buy 2 get 1 free sale on Transformers Deluxe Figures! How could we pass this up?? I have been focused on picking up Wheelie and I didn't object finding Cliffjumper and Swerve! I went to 2 different Toys R Us locations and no such luck. I was checking stock online and they didn't have Wheelie available for awhile and that was annoying. Generations Retail Tag is around 15.00 dollars and the sale was a steal that I wanted to take advantage of. But earlier this week we were in luck! We drove a few miles east of us and not only found these three figures, but found two discounted Kre-O sets at Marshalls. Yay! There is nothing like a toy high!
