Good news for Mighty Muggs fans. The first wave of Transformers Mighty Muggs have begun to hit stores in the US. Over the last week or so, there have been numerous reports of them being found at Kmart and Toys R Us stores across the country. Kenucme of the TFW2005 boards found Soundwave, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee at the TRU in Fayetteville, NC. They were priced at $10.49.
If you missed out on HasbroToyShop’s recent Transformers sale, you’re in luck. Amazon has dropped the price of select Animated and Universe toys by 55% or more. If you order $25 worth of toys, they’re also shipped free. Here are some of the toys on sale:
Transformers Animated Supreme Roll Out Command Optimus Prime - $19.99
Transformers Animated Voyager Megatron Cybertronian – $6.99
Transformers Animated Voyager Starscream – $6.99
Transformers Universe Ultra Onslaught – $7.99

Update: The deal is pretty much dead. You can still get Roll Out Command Optimus Prime for $24.99, but Amazon put most of the toys back to normal price. On a more positive note, I found two other deals that you might be interested in:
Transformers Animated Leader Bulkhead - $15.99
Transformers Universe Optimus Prime 25th Anniversary Pack - $45.99
While there were lots of deals on HDTV’s and Blu-ray players, Black Friday was a bust for most toy collectors this year. The shelves were fully stocked at most of the stores I stopped at but, as far as prices go, there wasn’t much to get excited about.
Thankfully, there are a few deals to be had online. One of the best deals I’ve seen is at Amazon.com where select Transformers Animated and Universe toys are 40% off. To top it off, if you order $25 worth of toys, they’re shipped free. Here are some of the toys on sale:
Transformers Animated Supreme – Roll Out Command Optimus Prime - $29.99

The Sam’s Club exclusive Transformers Universe Cybertron Series pack has started to hit stores across the U.S. Tim Formas and Maximum Burn of the TFW2005 boards found the set at Sam’s Clubs in the Chicago area. The set is priced at $39.44 and includes Optimus Prime, Longrack, Blurr, Runamuck and Buzzsaw.
Before you head out to hunt for this set, you can check to see if they’re in stock at your local Sam’s Club by entering your zip code on their website.
Update: Transformers Universe Cybertron Series pack is now in stock on the Sam’s Club website. If you don’t want to pay for shipping, you can also do a pick up at your local Sam’s Club store, if they have the set in stock.
While Thanksgiving is still more than a month and a half away, stores are beginning to stock up in preparation for “Black Friday.” While out shopping with my family, I came across a bunch of the Transformers Animated: Battle Begins sets with Optimus Prime and Megatron. Along with the six or so on the shelf, there were nearly 30 sets up on the riser.
This is pure speculation at this point, but could this set be a “Black Friday” item? Given, these sets aren’t selling very well, but the last time I saw so many Transformer toys was when they had the Star Wars Millenium Falcon on sale a couple of years ago.
Last week, there were a number of unconfirmed reports that the Leader class Transformers Animated toys had shown up in the US. Thanks to Christoph Prime of the TFW2005 boards , we now have some photographic proof. He found Leader class Bulkhead and Megatron at a Walmart store in Colorado. He also found the Roll Out Command Optimus Prime at another Walmart in his area.
Unfortunately, the selection of Animated toys hasn’t been nearly as good in my area. The sale on Transformers at the Target stores in my area was a total bust. The supposed pallet of toys turned out to be a case of wave 1 Voyagers and Deluxes. Knowing my luck, the wave 3 deluxes will show up the day the sale is over.
