Toys R Us is offering 40% off TRANSFORMERS - Age of Extinction - Flip and Change Figures. Originally $24.99 each, the figures are on sale for just $14.97.
There were five figures in all on sale, but two are already sold out (Optimus Prime and Bubblebee - as to be expected). The following three figures are still available:
- TRANSFORMERS Flip and Change Grimlock Figure
- TRANSFORMERS Flip and Change Lockdown Figure
- TRANSFORMERS Flip and Change Autobot Drift Figure
Grimlock is my favourite, because he combines modern tech with archaic animal power. Seriously, what is better than combining a robot and a dinosaur together? This guy is one awesome mech and I love the colour combination too. They did an outstanding job of making him look fierce when in robot form.
Lockdown converts between a robot and a sports car. I think they could have chosen better colours as I like my sports cars vibrant. This is still a really cool mech and should make a great companion for Grimlock.
Lastly, Autobot Drift is also a robot and a sports car - but this time in a vibrant blue. Autobot Drift and Lockdown make a great combination as you could race them in the car form and battle them in the robot form. However, my heart still belongs to Grimlock so I would end up with all three. I always figured that the more Transformers you owned the better.
These Transformers are good for kids who have the dexterity to perform the transformation. The flip and change Transformers are also excellent for collectors who are reliving their childhood memories of Transformers. I know many adult collectors of action figures, and Transformers used to be a big collector's item. Depending on the quality of these toys, they might fit right in with your collection.
Now, I price compared these Transformer flip and change figures with other stores. Here is what I found:
- $24.95 @ Walmart Canada
- $24.95 @ Chapters Indigo
- $22.07 @ Amazon.ca (Grimlock)
Toys R Us Canada's price is well below any of the competitors for these awesome little robots. Now, you cannot pick these up in store so shipping to your home is the only option. You will receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. I suggest purchasing two Transformers to reach that minimum.
