This was marked as low as $73 at Amazon.com, now $92. Good deal!

If I didn't already have all the MTT I wanted I'd have jumped on this $78.62 deal like a hyena on an antelope carcass.

I'm not planning on picking this up, but I saw them for $129 at Toys R Us today.

I think my TRU just put more of them on the shelf. I called out there earlier and they said they'd restocked "the big brown vehicle in the huge, long box."

Once again today, Christmas Eve I found another MTT at my Target, scanned it and yes 120.99.

My TRU still had two or three of the Troop Transports left the other day for the $129.99 sale price but I don't know if they're budging. That's as cheap as TRU is ever going to sell them short of a major liquidation so this will be the best shot some people ever have....many Targets and Walmarts just aren't bothering with the thing.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of the MTT at TRU next year marked down. They had the attack shuttle for $39.99 at various times this year, so I expect we'll see the MTT for around $79.99 at some point at TRU next year.

I sort of hope so. I would happily grab another one for seventy or eighty dollars considering the features and the slew of pack-in figures you get for it.

Let's hope they're sensible enough to do a 50% Off or greater sale on what's left of these.

I'd say keep an eye on Wal-Mart first - they have a history of blowing out the "Big Ones" in January each year.

this thing is what broke me of my habit of buying one to open and another to keep in the box

I opened the one I have and I'm happy with how many I have

of course that's not to say I wont buy another if I win the Powerball.... :shock:

I hit three Wal-Marts today looking for this on clearance. Right before Christmas, these stores had at least a combined 10 MTT's on the shelf - today, nada! All sold through. I'm glad that I bought one when I did a while back... and I know a lot of people turned their noses up on this item, but it apparently did just fine. And I'm glad it did. It deserved to. It's a great toy and by far the most kick ass item of 2012.

I would be curious to see how well it would have done if it had a proper release and actually available in stores. Other than my sightings at that one Target no other store has carried it around me except one TRU.

I dunno... it seems like this thing had similar distribution to the Turbo Tank? I don't ever recall seeing those in abundance.
