    Found a hidden cache of Transformers at WalMart I'd never noticed before :redface

    It contained Universe King Atlas, Sunstorm, Tigerstripe Ruination, Spychangers, and the minicon 6 packs. I picked up King Atlas...I wanted to grab Sunstorm as well, but I just can't justify paying 20 bucks for a deluxe sized Transformer with my limited funds at the moment:(

    Grimlock,
    I'm pleased to see that there is someone else in Boise who is spending far too much time going around to the same six or seven stores in a futile attempt to find new Transformers. I'm also impressed that you decided to pay $24 to buy the entire Universe Defensor. I was excited at first to find it, but I decide that there was no way that I would drop $4 per robot. I'm not sure if you already have these items, but near the back of the KB liquidation store you can find the Bumblebee and Cliffjumper keychains (I picked up Brawn and Windcharger at a KB up in WA). Also, at the Burlington Coat factory on Fairview, you can get the cheap knock-off versions of Devastator, Defensor, or Superion, once again, if you don't already have them. I've passed on Silverstreak several times in anticipation that Hound might actually show up one of these days. If you come across him, please let me know.

    Hey Mirage, it's great to see a fellow Boise TF Fan! I did indeed find Alternators Hound at the Overland WalMart two nights ago, however it was the last one on the shelf. Hopefully they restock soon, and if I see it again, I'll give you a private message where and when I saw it:)

    Well, I'm sure Hound will show up again soon. I have a feeling that this toy drought will end soon enough.

    Mirage2004,

    If you're looking for an Energon Mirage I saw one at Fred Meyer on Five Mile and Overland yesterday. Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU all have the same old crap ;)

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm saving my money for any Alternators that show up, or perhaps the day that the G1 reissues go on sale again. BTW, don't bother checking Overland Walmart or Toys R Us, nothing there today.

    Sounds good, thanks:) 

    I've been checking Fred Meyer's recently since Oregon and Washington Freddy's have been getting in Shockblast and Cliffjumper, but so far no good. I'll let you know if I see another Alt. Hound.

    Mirage,

    Didn't know if you have found Alt. Silverstreak yet or not, but Walmart on Overland had quite a few. I checked to see if they had any Hounds, but they didn't. I'll still keep a lookout for you.

    We must be checking the same places at the same time, because I was about to post the exact same information that you did in your last two posts. I would be quite surprised if anyone was dying to get their hands on a repaint of the two main peg warmers.

    lol, maybe we've passed by each other and not even known it...

    Yeah I totally agree about the repaints....
