    Found Rhinox at Walmart this evening. Didn't see 'Veggiesaur", and I didn't bother looking for the Dinobots.

    I came home from KBees with both the Destructicons. I agree with those that say they feel like knock-offs, they are fairly loose and feel kinda cheap, but overall they aren't too bad. Nice additions to my collection.

    No new sightings, but my local Wal*Mart just restocked....and it looks like their trying to get rid of their overstock, hopefully to make room for all the new shizzat comming in....there were at LEAST 12 Hot Shots on the pegs:redface....a bunch of Pants Primes (not Powerlinx)....the newest toys they had were the Sea Minicons, Thundercracker and Galvatron, all in abundance as well. Like I said, I'm hoping they are just making room in the back for all the new stuff comming in:thumb :

    Hey by the way, am i the only Idaho person in here?

    :confused

    Just got home from my two hour hunt....was slightly successful. I found Terrorsaur at a Fred Meyer, and also my Toys R Us had about 14 Reissue Prowl's on the shelf, so I am excatic about that.....popped open the box, and almost teared up when the sweet sweet smell of rubber tires and chrome wafted into my nostrils:lol  Pure 80's Nostalgia right there:thumb :

    I found the two new Minicon sets at Wal*Mart yesterday...they are sweet! Decent size, and in my opinion Prowl and Firebot have better working articulation then the Street Speed Team.

    I dropped by my Wal*Mart this morning to see if they had stocked any TF:U toys....and nope. But they did have Powerlinx Prime. I didn't get him since I already have the original pants Prime, but I thought I'd post the sighting here anyway.

    Both Wal*Mart and Toys R Us were stocked with the Transformers: Universe Deluxes. No sign of Optimus Primal or razorclaw, but I bought Reptillion Purplebolt and Snarl. They do look better in 'person' but why the purple...WHY?! Meh, still cool since I missed out on all of 'em the first time around:thumb :

    I went to Target to see if Airazor, Hoist and Wheeljack were out, and sadly they were not:cry  I did see a couple of the Supercon Primes w/ Autobot insignia. Passed of course, but still, at least new items are showing up:thumb :

    I forgot to add it the last time I posted, but those gay Roleplay swords have been at both Target and Toys R Us for the past week. Not one have been sold from what I can tell, and I've been to both places frequently searching for Unicron:rolleyes

    Nothing 'new' exactly, but my Wal*Mart had The Dark Sabre team (Air Assault, I couldn't remember) Street Speed, Adventure, and Space Minicon teams in the Unicron Battles packaging.

    My Target had TFU Striker and Blackarachnia. I eagerly passed on Striker, but picked up the last BA.

    Also Wal*Mart had three Unicrons and Toy's R Us was massively stocked up with at least three shelves packed with every Gigacon, and two shelves packed with Maxcons. The Supercon racks were nothing but (as they have been since November of last year) with Sideways and Smokescreens. Toys R Us also had an impressive display of about 10 Unicrons.

    Stopped by Wal*Mart early this morning (2am) and they had Powerlinx Hot Shot, Thrust, and Cyclonus. They still have all of them since I don't do repaints.

    I didn't buy it, but a Target near my town had about six Powerlinx Jetfires. If I bought any repaints, I would definitely get this one, i think it looks pretty sweet. Still haven't seen Predacon yet, but I'm still on the look out. In fact, I'm on my way to Target now:)
