    Nothing new in Glen Burnie either... The TRU/Target/Wal-Mart trifecta were busts.

    I really want to spend money at TRU to help keep them afloat, but goddamn...

    Those who didn't get Arcee and Grotusque off of HTS will be doing their best once they're released.

    Hard to spend money there when there is zero selection available.

    I would love to get that Titans Return Grotesque. But finding it is going to get on my nerves.

    Apparently it was reported back in May. No wonder the search feature didn't catch it before I posted in the news forum.
    Anyway, awesome find Drake915!

    Do we have an estimated street date for Wave 1 of Power of the Primes? I have searched around a bit and I can't seem to find anything concrete.

    I'm still on Combiner Wars and Titans Return, let alone Power of the Primes. I couldn't find what I wanted of the previous 2 lines very much anywhere. Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU had poor selection.

    I got some great deals on things that were over 10-years old and what was made within the last 10-years. I already dispersed a lot of my haul, but I did take a pic and post it the night after, so I'll update this with a link later. (Now is later: TFCon hauls (too much, not enough?) share whatcha got!) Curious to know, 'what items were you looking to get?' As I'm wondering if I saw some of it at tables or in rooms where deals were to be made.

    True, many items could be bought cheaper online, but I don't know what's easier than it being right there in your hands. (Unless you're counting 'to your door delivery' for ease... but I consider multiple trips to empty my bags into my car trunk worth it). I went with the strategy to primarily get things that didn't fall in that category. So, I got exclusives first (which won't be cheaper in the aftermarket until perhaps a few years later), then started looking for deals while comparing prices to what I could get with an eBay flash sale (btw, mad I missed the one the Saturday of the convention, despite winning an auction that night and getting a really nice deal on eligos). :( 

    I held myself back after I made a significant amount of purchases by telling myself, "we're only about a month away from early Black Friday sales." And now, a week later, we're a week closer... mwuahhahahaa. :D

    Any flea markets in the DMV area that might have TF items of interest? Maybe it's because I'm a recent transplant from the northeast's tri-state area; but I recall multiple flea markets and shops where you get to know 'go-to' vendors that could get & bring things you ask for (especially when they find there's a market for it).

    I've seen people post about China town's Walgreens, but isn't there a hole in the wall shop or two that have & sell (or could get) some of our niche products? When I see these eBay listings from China with loose TR figures, months before it hits our retail stores, it makes me way to myself, 'I know there are areas in the states that get them sooner than retail too.' I mean, there have to be places around here like that, right? Anyone know of such places? Please share.

    Mostly Titan Returns waves 5 and 6 plus the exclusives. Still haven't gotten Trypticon, Bruticus, Defensor, the casettes, or any power master Optimus Prime yet. (Granted I passed on the original PR Optimus because it looked like they barely painted anything.) Still looking for a CW Ultra Magnus too. Definately want the triple changers, 6-changers, Targetmasters (especially Slugslinger and Misfire), Jumpstarters and the Clones. I'll have to pace myself if I can find the right deals but I barely saw any of them in retail and when I did it was like, Here today... Gone Tomorrow. Only triplechanger I got is Broadside and only targetmaster I got is Triggerhappy. Managed to get Perceptor IIRC but that was my last Transformer I was able to hunt down and purchase.
