    no tools needed at all. every swap i did was using the ball joints of the mushroom peg/slot connections. if i wanted to swap anything else, i'd have to start removing pins, which i am not very good at doing,

    No new TFs around me but the Pembroke Pines TRU has the A Force Marvel Legends six pack.

    I don't collect Legends much anymore but this is an outstanding set, really well done.

    Agreed. I found it about 2 weeks ago, and it is truly worth every penny. If you had told me 10 years ago that I'd have an official Elsa Bloodstone figure, I wouldn't have believed it. Way to prove me wrong, Hasbro :D

    Any one in the Orlando area know of a TRU that has MPM-4? I need to exchange mine. I just realized after transforming it a few times that it's missing half of the silver back panel in truck mode! I can't believe I didn't catch that immediately, it's a pretty big piece. I don't want to return it because I had $15 in reward bucks that I won't get back.

    They (Club Store) needs to increase that discount a smidge to speed things up. 10% is like...scraps. There's an item on their site that I'd buy, but not for what they're selling it for. They remind of K-Mart when their locations would go out of business. The prices for their items would be crazy high, but you'd go into "Black Friday shopper mode" to really catch a good deal with them.

    i totally agree, their prices are just outrageous. i'd be interested in various of those Botcon toys but not for $800+ a set. the notion that the prices will ... sl .. o . . . wl ... y ... decrease is pretty silly but it seems like they are riding out the time as much as possible to ensure that they will get the highest price possible for their leftovers.

    They also raised the prices on a few figures before they discounted them. Ruckus and Windsweeper were both $69, but got raised to $140 before the 10% was applied.

    dirty pool, plain and simple.

    i did buy the Transmutate and Depth Charge figures they put out during the last sale and was rather disappointed. the box for Transmutate is so stupidly huge and ultimately the figure is bleh at best. at least DC is kind of cool.1

    I got a g1 sludge for 25, he also had a grimlock for same price.

    Wanted 60 for skids and mudflap.

    Walgreens stores in South Fl/Broward county are starting to get Marvel Legends Hunan Torch with some regularity. I think this is a goid sign for the clones.....
