    Transformers Universe in So Cal TRU

    So I go out toy hunting today and hit TRU first. They had the new G1 series 4 the one with Skywarp and Red Alert. That wasn't too big of a surprise but when I looked up to the armada section I saw that just to the left of the display they had two sets of the Transformers Universe figures. I didn't pick up any of them only because they aren't on my priority list. BUT I do have to say that they look better in person than in pictures.

    I did however pick up a set of the new series12 DBZ figures. Super Buu and Mystic Gohan are awesome. They also had the new Marvel figures except Gambit ( the only one I want). And for those who care they had the new YU-YU Hakusho figures.

    Next I go to Walmart and pic up the MOTU Two-Bad figure with video. They also had the new PL Prime and the new Minicons, wich absolutely rock.

    Not a bad day. I didn't find everything I was looking for but found a few unexpected surprises.

    I found TF: Universe Silverbolt, Snarl and Reptilion in the TRU store at Ontario Mills. But I only bought Snarl and Silverbolt (the only 2 left) but didn't buy Reptilion (they still have 4 when I left). They also have TF Reissues Wave IV (all 3) and Wave III Silverstreak & Thundercracker.

    I found Universe in northern Cal today also. At the Santa Rosa TRS. They at 3-4 of each, I only picked up Snarl. They also had all the new reissues, witch is cool because it's the first time I have EVER seen any reissues there beside a solo PM Prime.

    The Wal Mart in El Cajon had the Two Bad figure but no new Transformers. They have the same stuff from two weeks ago. I'll have to see what the Grossmont TRU has tonight. Thanks for the heads up!

    The only new Armada stuff are the new minicons, air military and emergency teams. They come in the new "Unicron Battles" packaging so they should be easy to spot. And they seem to be hitting Wal Mart first.
