I bought a Shatter, for 20 bucks I'd rather have the mediocre toy than not. and used their sale to price match at Target.

    If I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd be wondering if they had the low sales price to cut into targets profit margins.
    Often these sorts of sales have limited stock just to get people in the door, and then probably buy something that isn't as discounted while they are there... which is something that retailers can get into trouble for by the ACCC (it's almost false advertising, for deceiving people into thinking that there will be a decent amount of sale stock, but in reality there was only like one or two units). The other annoying element is that most retailers don't like to price match without calling the nearest store to see if they still have stock... and if you are shopping elsewhere because they had already run out, then the other retailer isn't going to price-match anyway. That's the thing I miss most about TRU - they would price-match to a catalogue without calling up the store. (most of the TRU stores did that)

    If anyone is still looking for them, Big W has most of their toysale on their eBay store, and they have MP Barricade and Cyberverse Ark Armor Optimus listed. No other TF products that I could see.

    Not so much Transformers but I noted when visiting a store that a ton of stuff that was discounted for the toy sale and then went back up in price (board games, MLPs etc) are now back on the shelves at the discounted price. Obviously stock they still wanna shift but didn’t manage to a few months ago.
