Now that's cool.

Just trying to figure out if there is anything I "need" right now.

Thanks for the heads up!

The sale seems to include everything except for the RHINO, Rescue Mission, and "Deluxe" packs.

What's left of the Tiger Rats and Conquest are priced @ $14.99.  Hard to beat that.  Unfortunately the only single packs left around here are from the first couple of waves.

So everything except the ROC exclusives - which isn't terribly surprising, since they come up directly out of the US

Must be secret sale because they don't mention it in the online flyer.  :spidey:

Just got back from Zellers.

All regular ROC stuff is at 50% off. Single packs, alpha, bravo vehicles, Night Raven, etc - all 50% off.

The ROC Target Exclusives (Rhino, Deluxe packs (snake armour) etc) are NOT part of the sale.

The Python Conquest/Tiger Rat stuff IS
. And it's not 50% of $39.99, it's 50% of 29.99.

I picked up another Tiger Rat for $14.99 today.

shucks, if it was for the deluxe packs, I would have picked up another 2 Snake armors.

No Tiger Rat's left at the 2 Zellers I hit but grabbed another Python Conquest for $14.99 and some of the smaller vehicles for $9.99 like the mole pod and that Joe version of the Fire Bat.

Thanks Ed!

It gets even better. I just buy some pots and pans on sale for $99.99 (normally $199.99). The total after taxes was $90.39 (?) PLUS I was told that if you spend over $75.00 you get a $10.00 gift card. I think the gift card is this weekend only.

I was offered the $10 and all I purchased was the two Jets - $35ish dollars.
I didn't take the $10 off as you had to sign up for an HBC card.
There was several Tiger Rats and Conquest X-30's left behind.

I am thinking about picking up another Tiger Rat - and doing a Custom A-10 Thunderbolt camo paint job.

That's a different promo.

If you sign up for an HBC card, you get 10% off your purchases for the entire day. That promo is always going on.

I was at a Zellers here in Montreal PQ and I tried scanning several Joe product they had, but nothing was discounted. In addition I was told by staff that the yellowed stickers toys were not on special either. Too bad.

Odd.
Which one?

Because I totally bought Scarlett at half-price yesterday at Zellers Angrignon, and today what little was left at Alexis-Nihon (holy cleanout Batman!) was also advertised as being 50% off.

Makes you wonder why these idiots don't clearance the stuff actually not selling, ie their overpriced exclusives. Shelves upon shelves of Rescue Mission sets, pegs and pegs of mini-vehicles, and the RHINO.

Post by: morgardee on February 28, 2010, 08:27:19 AM
Even at 50% off I'm not going to buy the Rhino. I already bought that tank a few years ago. Yes it's great toy but it's not doing me a lot of good in my attic. Now if it even comes down to $25.00 then I'll buy one.

But yes, I agree with Jay, they should lower the price on the Target Joes as well. I mean, the python conquest jet and Tiger Rat are Target vehicles yet they got discounted 50% as well. Makes little sense to me.

Still so far I've picked up:
Python Conquest
Steel Crusher
Mole Pod
Joe Fire Bat (still don't know that things name)
Cobra Gunship
Armored Panthor
Ice Dagger (really wanted one but was waiting for a sale)

Funny how when it cost between $9.99 - $14.99 all of the sudden it's worth owning.  :wink:

My 3 1/2 year old and I were having fun opening this stuff. It was like Christmas all over again.

Still hoping to find a Tiger Rat for that price. So far 3 of my local Zellers are all sold out and that's a shame because my son LOVES tigers so when I told him we were going to look for a Tiger Air plane yesterday he got really excited. Now he's got a stomach bug so our searching is over for now.

I agree - the Rhino should be regularly priced at $35. not $80!
I bought the original DTC version and only paid $50 for it with shipping from the states!
I have bought none of the new Target stuff at zellers as I can't justify paying that much - even if money was no object!
Wish my zellers had a better selection of the vehicles as I would have picked up the other stuff.  Maybe if I am out today I will take another look.

That was Zellers CDN. Very odd indeed. I'll try Zellers in St-Leonard today and see if I have any luck. I'm more looking for a figure that comes with goggles for a custom.

Just came back from Zellers St-Leonard and it's a double failure for me: No specials there either  :'( I guess I will have to pay a visit to Zellers Atwater on Monday hoping that the special will still be there, otherwise it'll be for a next time.

Went to Zellers Pointe-Claire yesterday. 50% off sale was in effect, but supplies were limited. However, after coveting it since its release but never being sure about the price, I now own a Mole Pod. And I love it. So so much. I showed it off to friends.

Still several rats and conquests at Zellers stone rd in Guelph. At that price I had to pick up the tiger rat just to play with it.

I think it's coming to work with me.

Update: I wish you all could have seen and heard my sons reaction to the Tiger Rat. We as adults might think "Meh, repainted Rattle jet, not as cool as the original" but to a 3 1/2 year old boy, an airplane with tiger stripes, teeth and eyes was the best thing in the world. He even gave that high pitched giggle of joy when he saw it. If your a parent then you know the one I'm talking about. We spent all night playing with it and he ran for it first thing this morning.

I've excepted that this Tiger Rat is not mine. It's his. I'll have to go back and get another for myself sometime.

Totally worth the $14.99.

that would be cool if i had sons, and who were older. I never cared for Tiger Force though I seem to have a bit of the stuff inherited from my brothers and cousin. Maybe I should get one and just re-paint my first vehicle custom. That is if they're on sale in my province.

Morg that was a great story - and it almost mirrors the fact that I have had to go back to zellers myself and pick up another set of jets for me - after I opened the first ones I bought my 5 year old asked if he could "test" them and make sure they would fly around the house OK, after 2 days of testing, I decided I better just go back and get another set to "test" for me!

- a Night Raven for $20.  (can't believe I bought one)
- three alpha vehicles for $10 each (snake trax, rockslide and skysweeper)
- another green Nano-viper $5.

Not bad.  Not bad.  I had the mobile pit HQ in my hands ($70), but still couldn't do it.  Partly 'cause my wife would likely kill me, but also because part of me wants to hold out and see if they go into further clearance.

I went to my local Zellers and found several Joes but no 50% sale advertisement in sight at first. It's only when I took the Night Raven to the Price check scanner that I realized they were indeed discounted. So If you walk into a Zellers and the sale isn't announced, don't forget to scan the items before you leave the store  :wink:.

Mine's all assembled, though. I don't think I can fit it back in its box.
If I could I could just slide it under my bed.

Is the Target stuff like Serpent Armor and others deluxe pack are still at regular prices?  At 29.99$, no ones will ever buy them!

Post by: THE Mike™ on March 06, 2010, 12:06:59 PM
At some point in the last year, they were marked down to $9.99. I have no clue when - but they were.

I have an extra one and I went to return it, they said the lowest price was $9.99 - good thing I had a receipt! :-)

I asked when it was on sale for that price - she told me sometime in the last year since the lowest sale price is always the default price given unless you have a receipt.

Yes the "Target" stuff isn't part of the 50% sale, even after scanning them at three different stores.

Just came back from store and all they have is the first waves stuffs.  I was looking for the Snarler Cycle and 2-3 Steel Crushers.  I don't realy expect that this store will ever restock Gijoe stuff.  Too many pegs warmers!

The PIT is pretty big, but it's DEFINITELY worth $39!  I paid $89 and I'm still happy with it!  Granted, it's not the best Joe base or even the best mobile base, but I still like it.  It goes well with my '83 HQ, '92 HQ, ROCC... ;D

Sale is still on.  From what I heard it runs through most of March.  I guess they are trying to get rid of as much stock as possible.

Really?  You guys can't find a Snake Trax w/Scrap Iron?

I never saw the black helmet gunship, and I got lucky and found a Steel Crusher during this sale, however most Zellers I went to have first wave alpha vehicles.

I was just at the Zellers at 50 THERMOS ROAD (Birchmount and Eglinton) and they had a Snake Trax w/Scrap Iron there.  the figures are moving fast, time for troop building.

i found snake trax with scrap iron at milton zellers, but when i got it home, i had found that when the morons open that shipping box with a knife, they put a nice cut in the pack, and being a moc collector that wont due.

The last winners that I saw $39 pits at was the Dixie Value mall one. Also, for those that care they had the PTE headquarters thing at the Sears clearance store for $34 which is smaller and a much better playset imho.

PTE stands for Power Team Elite, a line of 3 3/4" realistic military figures that sort of meet in the middle between BBi's "detailed but expensive" and Chap Mei's "simple but cheap".
Their figures are rather nondescript, but their vehicles are quite nice and solid.

Picked up one more Python Patrol Conquest and Tiger Rat today just for the fun of it.

At $14.99 a piece it's hard to say no. Besides, my son has claimed the last Tiger Rat and I'm not about to take it away from him. He can have the Python Patrol Conquest but I'll trade him for the P.P. Viper with another character. Won't matter to him who is inside. I don't think Wild Bill has ever been removed from the Tiger Rat yet.

BTW, I scanned the figures. They are still coming up at $4.99 each, even if the display says $9.99.

Lucky you. I wish I could find Python Patrol Conquests down here in Montreal PQ.

As for the specials. That is so weird. 2 Zellers in my area don't have any specials advertised in store, but it's when you scan the items that you get the hidden surprise...I wonder why it's not on the flyers.

I picked up another Night Raven and Steel Crusher, you can't beat 50% off.  I'm thinking about doing my own custom paint jobs now since the price is so low.  This way I will not cry if a screw up.

With 9 days remaining for this sale Zellers looks like they have cleared out alot of stock.  It took searching 5 Zellers locations to finally grab a Tiger Rat.  I wonder if they are going to drop the price on the Target Exclusives as I see they have alot them instock.

It can be expected that they will eventually since they have a lot as you put it, but I think they are playing it safe by first clearing the older stock, which is the obvious smart plan.

I was just at a Zellers at Birchmout and Eglington, they have taken down the signs for the 50% off sale.  I did not see anything else I wanted to buy so I did not scan one to confirm that they are still on sale.  the Sale was to end this coming Thursday March 25.  Did anyone else see the same thing or know if they ended the sale early?

I picked up:

-tiger rat
-python patrol conquest
-dvd pack 1
-dvd pack 2
-steel crusher
-cobra hydra

Im not a fan of the ROC line and hemed and hawd over to get the hydra and crusher but at 14 bucks I didnt mind paying and they turned out to be 2 pretty cool vehicles. The tiger rat and conquest however seem hastily put together to get onto shelves.

I had one last look, but didn't see anything else.
I probably should have picked up one more TigerRat/Conquest to keep around, but I don't have the space for them.

First off, I'm curious Bandonov. How did you find out about the sale end date? Did Hasbro announce somewhere? Since the Zellers stores I visited did not have any advertisement, it wasn't possible for me to know it...

On a side note I was in the states last week and found a Rhino at Target marked down to $12.49 - I picked it up without even thinking.  Of the three target's I was in I only say the one Rhino - so these have been marked down and sold off long ago.  Sad that Zellers wouldn't do the same thing with them here in Canada.

One of the Zellers I went to had the advertisement displayed and on it at the bottom right hand corner in super fine print it had the sale duration.

I went to my local Zellers and it was on sale as well!  This is crazy as I went to another Zellers the day after the sale when it was to be over and they did scan at regular price.  The price tags all state that they are regular price but they scan at 50% off.  Any body need more Tiger Rats?
