Combiner Wars Boxsets Go To Deep Discount - Get Them While They Last!
ExVee - Thursday, September 15, 2016
If you spent the year so far undecided on the Combiner Wars boxsets, this may be your time to act! Hasbro Toy Shop's Ebay page currently features an extreme price reduction on the first two sets - G2 Superion and G2 Menasor. For customers in the United States, either of these can be had right now for just $29.99, shipping included. We expect this price won't last long as they're obviously trying to clear old stock, so act fast if you want to add these toys to your collection at probably the best non-secondhand price you'll find! Links are below, so keep reading. UPDATE: They keep going in and out of stock, so check back regularly if you miss out on one attempt!

Apart from that, we have the usual Optimus Prime and two Lost Light issues, plus some trades including a complete collection of the Wreckers titles.
