I went to Target today, 4/28/14, and went by the toy section not really expecting to see anything new on the Transformers section, with the TF4 toys coming out soon and all, hopping to at least find wave 4 of the Kre-O individual packs (no luck). They did have a couple of Generation Whirls though.
What I did find was that all the TF Prime Beast Hunter toys were on clearance. Legion (they actually had all 4 individual limbs for Abominus), Deluxe and Dragon Assault Optimus where 30% off, while Voyager Darksteel & the Abominus pack where 50% off. Also a few of the Construct-bots had the 30% off, but it didn't seem like all of them did.
