Re: Transformers Animated Purple Shockwave & Sunstorm Found at Zellers

I don't feel so bad now for buying them for 45$ (with Tax, 50,61$) but still a crazy price for a voyager and activator, even if the voyager is exclusive.

Those who found them in Zellers, is the box bi-lingual or they used the US English only box?

English only, but lacking any "exclusive" markings.

Abbotsford Zellers has some too, they're on an end cap, not in the main TF aisle.

Re: Transformers Animated Purple Shockwave & Sunstorm Found at Zellers

such an odd pricing choice...$50 really?...anyway, i have a couple of these left at the us pricing in case people need it...see my thread

p.s. zellers seems to be accepting blanket 40% discounts to match TRU in my area as reported by other members elsewhere...might be worth a try on these...

Re: Transformers Animated Purple Shockwave & Sunstorm Found at Zellers

I took the TRU flyer in and asked them if they could please pricematch TRU's 40% off sale and they did, so I was able to get a Shockwave set for a reasonable $29.99.

$49.99 is just a shocking price point for these sets. I'm not sure what the logic is there.

Re: Transformers Animated Purple Shockwave & Sunstorm Found at Zellers

Gouging I think is the term you are looking for. Or they are trying to recoup losses on other exclusives? Dunno.

I find the price very high. I don't understand why they value overpriced stock, instead of cash flow. Zellers, you are a store, move your product!

I'm going to continute to wait for the regular old Shockwave if this set is going to be priced so high.
