Toys R Us Announces Black Friday Doorbuster Deals, Starts 9PM Thanksgiving Day

By blitzwing on Monday, November 14, 2011

Toys R Us has made their announcement about their Black Friday plans. They plan to be the first out of the gate by opening at 9PM on Thanksgiving night for 2hrs.

A 2nd Doorbuster will be held at the traditional 5am-1pm time slot on Friday 11/25. Transformer fans might be more interested in the Thursday night event, as they will have Ultimate Optimus Prime on sale at 40% off retail, which works out to about $47.99.

That's $12 lower than both Target AND Walmart.

For those not wanting to brave the crowds, TRU.com will also offer the doorbuster deals starting at 9PM Thanksgiving night.

Additionally, those who have friended Toys R Us in Facebook will have access to a sneak peak of all the Black Friday deals.

The announcement article can be viewed here.

It's a c-section delivery and it only takes an hour. The nearest TRU is about 20 minutes away from the hospital. It's a small window, but if it weren't for the Black Friday crowds I could probably pull it off. As it is the lines alone would do me in

What he meant was he's going to be at the hospital on Black Friday

Baby delivery? Get your priorities straight man. But I'm pretty sure you could sneak a computer in and most hispitals have wifi

Yeah, it would be bad form to be at the hospital, and tell the doctor "I'll be right back, I need to buy Optimus Prime at TRU."

interesting. I wonder what the combos are and if it's worth it for me to go and deal with people at walmart

No such luck, [url=" (link) will have PCC 5pks combined with PCC 2pks for $10 Looks like [url=" (link) will offer Voyager class figs for $10 as well. K-Mart's deal is too weak to post

My son is being delivered on the 25th so that's what I'm doing for Black Friday this year. Also, my wife is still pretty sure that Walmart will have Ultimate Optimus for $40. When I know for sure I'll pass it along.

In a keynote at MIP Junior 2015, Hasbro's Stephen Davis touched on many topics related to the company's media franchises. In the process of answering questions, he revealed that the recently concluded writers room did not just plan Transformers 5, but that they worked to plot Transformers movies for the next ten years, which he suggests will take the property through an eighth film. He also specifically mentions Michael Bay's involvement once again, to no one's particular surprise. Video of the event has been posted to Youtube, so click through to have a look!
Today Deadline is reporting that TJ Fixman, known perhaps best to this audience For his contributions to the Ratchet & Clank series, has been hired in to Hasbro Studios as a creative consultant. Fixman's role will be to work with the existing media producers to help develop the fiction and media sides of the major brands, including Transformers. It sounds like Hasbro Studios is making a serious effort to up their media game, and only time will tell what influence will be seen from this latest addition.
Thanks to Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook, we have some nice photos of the Platinum G1 Dinobots. These are the Generations Series AOE Dinobots in classic colors and with G1-based robot heads, which for better or worse are probably the nearest we're going to get to true Classics Dinobots anywhere in the foreseeable future. Fortunately on that front, these come off looking quite nice with these decos and their retooling. Click through to check out the photos!
Hold up before you sign that check and buy a used car, because there's a statue of a robot you may want to think about first! Prime 1 Studio has posted an extensive image gallery of their elaborate Museum Masterline Transformers Galvatron statue, and it looks pretty impressive! (As it should for an SRP of $1,899 USD!) The Exclusive edition - limited to 888 pieces where the Standard run is 1,000 - includes Megatron's severed head. Keep reading to see!
In a message posted just a short time ago to michaelbay.com and his own Twitter account, Michael Bay states that as of right now he has not officially joined the production of the next Transformers movie. In the very brief and to-the-point statement, Bay notes that he has taken at least one meeting already and that things are being discussed. However, given Bay's track record, we don't expect to see Transformers 5 with someone else ultimately in the director's chair. Stay tuned here for more updates!
