    I was at my local Target the other day and picked up the last Ice cream truck!

    Heading home, with him I was so excited that i had finally found him, and couldn't wait to play with them. I had watched Peaugh's review of the little guys at least twelve times already, and couldn't be happier.

    And the satisfaction that they had been found was incredible.:) 

    Have you ever spent weeks hunting down a transformer, finally gotten your hands on it, and felt a huge mixture of gratitude, hapiness and satisfaction?

    It feels great doesn't it?:)

    OH yeah. Mine was a few weeks ago when I FINALY found a Movie Ransack at retail. I've been looking for him ever since he came out, and he is just full of win.

    Interestingly, I found the only Scalpel and Dune Runner scouts hidden behind an army of Jetfires, but are they more rare than Ransack? I would hvave expected Ransack to have been hidden as well, since he's such a rarity in my area.

    For me, Scalpel is the rarest of the three, as I've only seen him once. Dune Runner isn't all that rare around here (though he's definitely not as common as the wave one stuff).

    What is it that is so great about those little Ice Cream Twins? I would get them if they were here but apparently not. And @ the guy who was looking for Ransack my Wal-Mart would gladly have sold their Ransack and Rollbar stock. We have way too many of those here and not enough of other TFs that I would like.

    Anyway, ice Cream Twins have been getting some nice comments so I'll have to pick them up when they become available.

    Just goes to show how bad distribution can be. There have been literally squadrons of Ransack in my area since street date. I can thrust my hand into the racks and have a 50% chance of getting one.

    Ejector is a whole different story. I can't find one to save my soul.

    That feeling is my drug. People need to come to the American Fork, UT Wal Mart. They have 8,000 Ice Cream Twins there :lol

    Nice find. They look pretty cool, and are among the few ROTF toys I am interested in.

    I had that moment when, while shopping at the Wal-Mart closest to where I live, I found Interrogator Barricade and I barely restrained myself from screaming, "YES!"

    I thought I'd never find him.

    I just picked up the Twins at my local Wal-Mart in Downtown Long Beach, CA.

    It was the last or only one they had.

    To tell you the truth... I went there to buy Jetfire and I wasn't eager to buy the Twins, but I couldn't resist because it was the only one on the shelf.

    I'm glad that I did.

    It's a really cool figure.
