    Conway Wal-Mart (one near the interstate) has a bunch of the G1 Minibots reissues. Also had the new, supposedly cancelled, Mega Construx Heroes wave. Picked up a Man At Arms and Evil Lynn but they had some Hellboys, T800 endoskeletons, Kratos, Assasins Creed and a few more Man At Arms left.

    Yeah, they're technically smaller. But they got HEFT, man! Good plastic, no real hollow bits. If this is the future, I don't necessarily mind smaller.

    They're coming. Russellville Wally stocked the Siege $5 Battlemasters so its hopefully just a matter of time. :)

    I DO like it when figures have that heft, and even moreso when there aren't hollow parts to boot..
    But I think I would rather have scale rather than heft. I'm more liable to be forgiving on chug figures than mp's tho...

    Nope. Never.
    Never ever, ever.
    Well, they most likely will; but they'll be the last walmart in the U.S. to get em.
    :p

    I am as well. I have the Classics 1.0 TRU Soundwave reissue, but to be honest, I've never been happy with the double door look.

    And not a sighting, but as of Sunday night, the Russellville K-Mart is closed forever. It was not a very good place for TFs toward the end, but I do have fond memories of the place. I remember my great-grandmother would buy me a Transformer there whenever the family would come from LR to visit her. In fact, I think a majority of my G1 Transformers came from either Russellville K-Mart or the LR K-Mart on Rodney Parham. I do feel for the workers there though. The manager of the local K-Mart was one of the best store managers I've ever met. Hopefully they will have other opportunities elsewhere. But I guess on that note, K-Marts are now extinct in Arkansas. :(

    I know. I'm a horrible person... S'pecially since I'm a soundwave myself.:puke: 

    Yeah, the double door look has never been my fave on him either, and I could never find a real g1 in my searches of flea markets over the years that was ever worth buying because they were super loose. This will be an awesome addition to the shelf fer sure.
    I actually got my animated Magnus from Russellville Kmart; I walked in cuz I was visiting my parents, and couldn't find him anywhere around little rock or benton/bryant, and when I saw him in the shelf; I'm pretty sure I squealed out loud cuz they had like 8 of em! Good times. RIP Kmart...:rip :bowdown:

    Russellville Wally FINALLY put out the G1 minibot shipper. Its on an endcap display on the LEGO aisle side. They also have G1 Hot Rod down to $13. No Screamers or Devs.

    WMSC on Rogers Ave has SIEGE Battle Masters, and a few minibots but nothing else.

    I really wanna do a skyward deco for a studio series plain, I just don't know which one yet. I don't want to do the thundercracker or star scream molds, since they both are different jets, I need to find a different one, any ideas?

    Too bad there is not a Studio Series BB Blitzwing. He would look good in Skywarp colors. I think at the moment Starscream and the Nitro molds are the only jet molds in Studio Series until Leader Jetfire hits. A Skywarp Blackbird would be awesome but robot mode wouldn't look good as Skywarp.

    havent seen that one anywhere yet. He does look awesome, but the combiner wars one is the better scale imo.

    nitro seems like the best bet.
