    that store hasnt had anything good in ages...I doubt they got alt prime...they have not ever had alts to my knowledge and they have not had a current BT since grimlock and swindle. I used to go there once a week but they have not been up with TFs in a long time..Just cybertron stuff. I was there 2 weeks ago and notta.

    I feel a bit alone on this, because I don't think the Dodge Ram is a big enough, powerful enough truck to symbolize the high and mighty OP (who is, as we all know, a dick, like Superman, or Teddy Roosevelt :p  ). 20th Prime is my preferred Alt Prime (they're in scale! sort of!). Am I the only person who's really underwhelmed by Alt Prime? (Probably. Don't worry, I'm in the process of getting over it already.)

    I might get one, though--grab this and a Rollbar (for the head), and you could easily make an Alt Trailbreaker, which seems like it might be a really fun custom to do.

    I'm almost positive he was in Evansville, IN, but I missed him. One of the Wal-mart stores here was out of Alternators last I checked a couple of days ago, and today when I was in there they had one each of Rollbar, Ricochet, and Skids, with the fourth toy apparantly already purchased. I believe those are 3/4 of the first case assortment Optimus is in, so I suspect somebody beat me to him. But of course, I can't provide a receipt photo, because if it was him he was already gone. :(

    I dunno, I'd think it far more likely the missing toy from the assortment is Sunstreaker...

    Unless there's an assortment I'm not aware of that includes Rollbar, Ricochet, and Sunstreaker, then that's not possible. The last one Streaker was in was him, Skids, Prowl, and Tracks.

    The Zellers I was at tonight just opened a case of Sunstreaker, Skids, Rollbar and Ricochet...

    Hope I find Prime soon.

    I stand corrected then. That's probably the assortment KidDynamite encountered then.

    The consensus in the other thread (at least the first few posts) seems to be that it was ordered online. I'm not even going to think about hunting for him till we heard about a major chain sighting rumor.
