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.

Hoping to demystify this game's history, Tformers recently had an opportunity to ask Jagex's David Nicholson, VP of Transformers Universe some questions about it. Unfortunately, their answers only confused things more with switching the mode of the game AGAIN for the third time from MMO, to MOBA, and what they are now calling a MOTA (Massively Online Tactical Action Game). We also learn that game is set in the Prime continuity with others to be included. Read on for the full Q&A.
Following the second report of griffin over at OzFormers, we have new details on the many Transformers Games that will be coming soon. His report names a number of them that we know about already, but it does bring up two names we reported previously
as a Hasbro trademarks. It seems that "Autobots Supreme" and "Spirits Rising" are not toys, but games. The thrid name, "Megatron Returns" seems to relate to the movie-verse. For which, the new listings reveal not just a Movie 4, but a Movie 5 game too. See the complete list of games below.
