    Nothing of note at the DeLand WM. Still have never seen wave 2 POTP voyagers (let alone Misfire or more importantly Twin Twist). I might break down and get the japanese legends twin twist before I spend the same money on the ebay prices for an american marked up.

    Well, Pinellas area is awkward still. The Walgreens in Belleair Bluffs still has a popt swoop, slug, and 2x Moonracer. Picked up SS Blackout at the Largo Target. I didn't care much for the original figure. I stil think that SS Ratchet was a failure. I thought BO would be a, "backpack," or, "shellformer." Couldn't be happier. Sure his bottom side hangs low, but that is what the movie did. He's a hulking piece of sweetness. I wish I could change my mind about SS Starscream; can't bring myself to do it after the previous movie figs. That and I love the Nitro/Thundercracker mold. Someone convince me to do it!!! And also please let me know if there is still a Rod Unicron somewhere in Clw/Largo. Thanks!

    Hey, wasn't sure where to place it, so please nobody jump down my throat. I'm looking for (opened but complete and not broken) would be fine WFC/FOC Thundercracker. I have an open WFC/FOC Skywarp w shelf wear and an open FPCC minion Sharkticon w/o missiles from the FPCC G2 Redux set I would trade for the TC. Hit me up.

    Starscream is great. They took the DOTM deluxe, upscaled it, and improved upon it. Added some chest-filler pieces that fold away perfectly in bot mode and made it so that you can fold his hands and peg his weapon into his wrists so he has his rocket launcher gun arm. Fakebusker83 (Ariel Lemon) also made miniguns for Starscream and Blackout as well as a jet thruster backpack for Screamer. You can print both in grey if you want so you don't have to worry about painting them. The miniguns are easy hand-paints though if you do.

    No problem in asking if you're a local and it's not a list of things you're looking for.

    Went to Toys R Us in Fort Myers earlier today, still a bunch of stuff but pretty much no Transformers left.
    They had one of those remote control squeaks toys. One set of infernicus and a bunch of boxes of alt modes. They also had those dog tag looking things.
    I bought the infernicus. He's not the greatest but I figured for 50% off and as kind of a memoir on Toys R Us I might as well get him.

    Speaking of TRU, if anyone hasn't seen, some Babies R Us stores have TONS of TR Grotusque figures.

    Neither here nor there, but I won't be missing that specific location anyway. They were always shady.

    Didn’t think to take pics. I’m sure they’re gone by now. Guess I’ll know for next time.

    I wonder what my local Walmart and Target have...

    ...guess I don't have to wonder anymore, since I got my driver's license on Friday!

    Weird, Brickseek isn't showing any local Wal-Marts as even carrying SS Megatron. Which is weird, when a toy is starting to be released at this point it usually will show at least a couple locations as out of stock.

    SS Blackout at Colonial/Fashion Square Target. Nothing else of importance there though.

    No Moonracer, Hun-Grrr, or Inferno anywhere though that I can see.

    No Hot Rod at any Ross either.
