FYI: Titans Return Trypticons Being Spotted At Wal-Marts! In 2019!
Might the 2017 Titan Class Transformer be showing up late in your area? Read on to find out!
As first reported on the Allspark Discord server, several Titans Return Trypticon figures have been spotted at two separate Oklahoma area Walmarts! For the photographic evidence, refer to the two pictures below!
While Titans Return Trypticon sightings at retail well after the figure’s initial release aren’t unheard of, they’ve typically been at discount retailers, such as Ollie’s or Ross. Not only is this at a major, nationwide retailer, but the price unfortunately seems to be far from a deal. While, as you can see above, no price was listed on the shelf, we were able to verify at one of the stores that Walmart seemed to be charging the full, $149.99 MSRP for Trypticon.
While this is obviously disappointing for the price conscious collector, if these are being distributed widely by the retail giant, it might be a test run to see if the Titan size class has potential at Walmart. Since the death of Toys R Us last year, the US has been short a major retailer that’s willing to sell these colossal toys. If all goes well, might we see later Titans, such as Power of the Primes Predaking or the upcoming War for Cybertron: Siege Omega Supreme at Walmart as well? Only time can tell.
So what do you think? Does the full price scare you off, or might you go Trypticon hunting at your local Walmarts? If you find anything, be sure to let us know over on the Allspark forums, Discord server, or Facebook group!
