    ... 2 came back to Madison at some point and my boys were/ are thrilled that we caught one... the other was still there but up by the main office. The workers said they didn't know where to put them back out.

    They did not seem to have been opened, I bet someone bought them to flip or something and saw the glut on ebay right now so took them back.

    anyway setting up a base with two in city mode has been a lot of fun this week.
    Mostly though we use one in city and one in monster mode.

    Anyone know where the wave 2 deluxes are? I would like another Blackwing... anyone have any idea why these are not available to buy from Wal mart Target or anyone really online for retail?
    STILL looking for Hun Gurr as well, those are still embargoed as well for some reason.

    This isn't really local sighting news but it's definitely newsworthy. For those of you who never go the chance to pick up a Computron, Hasbro or Takara, TFSource is selling MakeToys Quantron for 151.25 shipped. One hell of a deal, so pick one up if you love combiners as much as I do!

    For comparison, the Tak/Tom Unite Warriors box set is around 200+ while the Hasbro one is about 100. Good luck couch diving for the funding! Lol

    BBTS finally filled my pre-order Sludge, but not Snarl yet. Does that mean we might start seeing them in stores in Mobile area?

    By here do you mean Mobile area? If so, they must have sold out quickly and been before I started looking but ive been checking for like the last 3/4 months.

    They popped up briefly in Arab, but only 2 cases worth which were promptly bought out. We still have some Rippersnapper remnants but no other figures, though somehow we got another wave 1 case a few days ago.

    C'mon guys... the boys and I would like some new Transformer toys this weekend!

    What have we got in terms of POTP Voyagers, Hun Gurr, Inferno, Optimal, Wave 3 Terrahcons, ANY PMs after wave one, hell at this point id take some doubles of TR deluxe guys from Ollies ( ours only had Rod and Slinger for a while now) ...with Joe dead, TF distribution eating shit, TRU dead so the True heroes stuff isn't even a fall black plan... Star Wars is about the only game in town for getting weekend toys...we have most of the Solo stuff ( except the main speeder, still havnt found that) Id get some NEO VTC Hoth troopers... but.

    Have you guys noticed ONLY Target is carrying that line? I havnt seen ANY Neo TVC Star Wars guys at ANY Wal marts.


    Man I wonder how low TRU is going to go on those Snokes throne room play sets... last few times I checkeed there they had DOZENS of those sitting even at 50 - 70 cent off.... I might bite on one at some point but I'm curios how ,ow they will go.

    Found the Inferno wave at the HIWY 20 Walkart on Madison as well.

    Most of the Walmarts I have been to in Mobile and coastal MS have stopped carrying PotP voyagers and leaders for the movie toys. I have never seen wave 2 deluxes in store. I saw wave 2 voyagers once and bought both of them. I did see one walmart in MS restock wave 1 deluxes last week. I don't know if Hasbro has messed up wave 2 and after, or the stores just want to carry movie toys.

    Anyone know a Walmart toy department manager? Maybe we can ask them what is the issue with dropping voyager and leaders.

    I have seen the Star Wars vintage figures at a few different Walmarts, but I passed because of the price.

    Ollies here finally got down to just Slug Slingers, one of the workers said he had heard one in Mobile had the " Wolf guy wave" so I guess he means wave 5 with Weird Wolf, Misfire, Twin tits and Windblade... anyway he said he expected to get that one next so Imma keep a look out. I found that wave once that's TransMasterC and picked up WW, TT and MF out of it but left Windblade. I wish I would have got her as it was my only chance, I would have liked another WW and Misfire. WW because I just LOVE that toy and MF because 1 I army build the 'Con Target Master and 2 He will be a permanent fangry.
