    ^ a lot of their shiets is over priced n heavily marked up. Plus they are scalpers. The locals there seems to have difficulty finding items in their local toy stores and no, I don't consider comic shops a toy store per se cuz it's still a scalpers shop.

    So no it's not worth the drive

    Yeah toyarena is a last resort for me. They're the only people in orange county that get imports and 3rd party on a regular basis, so they get kind of unreasonable.

    Has anyone in OC seen any Kroks?

    I saw a Krok at Walgreens in HB (Brookhurst and Garfield). That was about 2 weeks ago though.

    Me and my friends stopped giving them money along time ago,they screwed each of us over way to many times. We now go with Chosenprime,Captured Prey or ToyDojo and were all very happy to have made the switch,heck even the customer service is better with those 3 shops.

    ^^ ToyDojo is awesome. Haven't used ChosenPrime or Captured Prey but I've only heard good things about them too.

    Never used ToyArena, heard many bad stories about their prices.

    I actually went to frank and sons on Wednesday and snagged the pc-13 sword and pc-14 gun from toy arena for $30 each. Dude was super chill. They even had a MISB utopia for $325. I'm really wondering if it just depends on who is working.

    I've bought all my TF/gunpla from toyarena for a few yrs now and the guys there had always gone above and beyond to help customers out.

    Went to Porter Ranch, CA Toys R US... If anyone is out looking for Titans Return Megatron and Six Shot, they're there. Several Triggerhappy and Blurr, and Titan Returns Galvatron. MP Bumble bee too.

    Still on a quest to get Chromedome, Sergeant Kup, Preceptor, and High Brow... :\

    I've seen two Chromedome at my local Walgreens. Original head, though, not the Takara head

    Three Triggerhappys, two Hot Rods, I think two Twinfernos, Fangry, and Leader Optimus Prime and Blaster (and some others but can't remember off the top of my head) at the Target North in Roseville. TRU on Fairway has 2 Gnaws, Leader and Voyager Optimus Prime, bunch of Blasters and a Fort Max (plus Ravage). Sorry I don't know the RiDs since I'm not really collecting them so can't remember what I saw for them.

    Alhambra TRU had Hot Rod, Triggerhappy, and Twinferno are 22.99 now! Price matching to website might work.

    They also have Voyager Megatron and Laser Prime

    Target Orange on Tustin had a few Twinfernos, Triggerhappys, and Hot Rods, and a single Breakaway at closing last night.

    I actually only paid $200 for the MP Grapple and Ollie. They gave me the PC-13 for free.

    Fresh case of TR Deluxes wave 3 at Target off La Cienega and Rodeo in Culver City. They're at the electronics desk right now, not even on the pegs yet.
