BBTS clearance sale... WITH STUFF PEOPLE MIGHT ACTUALLY WANT

Post by Clay » Fri Aug 22, 2008 4:17 am

BBTS is a site sponsor, so I'll throw this in News; if anybody wants to move this to Toys, it's ok by me.

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/list.aspx?list=2225

Reissue Sky Linx, Maspterpiece Megatron, MP3 Soundblaster, and a bushel of Movie Deluxe figures have all been put on clearance. People might actually want these as opposed to the bedspreads, candy, and underwear merchandise that normally goes on clearance.

By "orange plug", do they mean a permanent one, or one that's just there so they can sell it legally?
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.

Screw you, man, everyone loved him. He's miles better than PM Prime, his fists go in and everything.

Maybe now they're officially Bad At Toys Takara can move into the market for polishing turds?

Been eyeing the encore Ratchets and Iron Hides. Maybe if they go a little lower. Might have to snatch Omega.

Hellz yeh. That's why nowhere can sell them - everybody's already got two. Plus the spare one they got when HLJ were giving them away free with every purchase, whether people wanted them or not.

It does have die-cast metal, making it a better blunt weapon with which to defend your home from invaders. :)

If you can lift him, and if he doesn't fall on you and crush you to death before that.

No robot was ever made better looking by being given a big silver vest.

Oh if only the postage didnt negate the savings i would be running riot at these prices-hope you colonials are filling your carts.
On another note I wonder if this means the Encore line isnt doing the business.
I hope not as there are other molds I want to see re-issued before it runs out of steam.
Loss of job. Will sell for food here.

The encore molds that are on clearance have either been there a while (or in the case of Omega, Skylynx and the minibots, the boxes are damaged).

Omega My be a bit big for living space as tempted as I am. I'll probably grab a few of the smaller things like the Dreadnok comic pack.

Yeh, it might not be bad news for Encore - the line will be more concerned with Japanese sales rather than how they're doing for an American importer (many of the toys reissued are, effectively, new to Japan, either being unavaliable there before [Omega], or only in very limited quantities [The Amazing Onebox Brothers]). O' course, it could still be doing shit over there for all I know, but BBTS reducing the figures isn't a death knell in itself :)

If you guys have so many God Ginrais, can I have one? :D

For the record, I ****ing LOVE God Ginrai.

There is some goooood shit in this clearance. I'm sorely tempted to pick up a loose Rodimus and some BSG figures.

I'm getting Masterpiece Megatron, I considered Encore Ironhide and Rachet but the lack of a head Infuriates me.
All that was needed was a catalyst and the machines of war are set in motion.

I'm waiting for Iron Hide to drop a little lower. Ideally I'd like to snag him at $15, but I'll settle for $20.

I ended up snagging the Dreadnok comic pack, Mean Time and a few things that aren't on clearance.
