    One TRU, Two Wal Marts, Two Targets, Three Fred Meyers and Zero new Trasformers. Milwaukee Target still had the same two Omnicon repaints :rolleyes

    Funny, that's exactly what I'm seeing (or not seeing, I suppose). I'm not sure why Boise hasn't seen anything new for so long. We should try and coordinate our efforts to save on some gasoline.

    Hi, Transfan originally from NYC now living in Idaho for about a year now. Good to hear that there are others searching as I am although because of cash flow problems only looking for Alternators for now. I also haven't found anything new, but would appreciate any info about the newer Alternators such as Hound and even Silverstreak. Hope to communicate more in the future.

    Later.

    Hey how's it going? Welcome to Idaho. I went to high school in Meridian....nice place. If you're up to travelling, The WalMart on Overland in Boise now consistently has Silverstreak. I found Hound there at the end of June, but I haven't seen him since. I'm out pretty regularly searching for new Energon stuff, so I'll let you know where and when I see Hound again. I'm on my way to Burley tomorrow through Wednesday for a teaching gig....I'll be stopping by Twin Falls to see if SOMEPLACE in Idaho is getting something new :redface :) 

    Good to see Idaho's TF fans participating in this chat board!

    Catch you later.

    Grimlock if your going to Twin Falls you should stop at the Wal Mart in Mtn Home right off I-84. They usually get new stuff in pretty early. I'd look for ya since I live there but I'm outta town for a few weeks. Good luck!

    Thanks Grim for the Silverstreak heads up. I'll stop by there later this week. Meridian's pretty nice and compared to what I used to commute in NYC traveling in Idaho is nowhere near as bad as to what I'm used to. Hope you have a good trip and good luck in your teaching gig and your Transformer hunting this week.

    Later.

    Thanks Guile and Mechatron1.

    I found Omega Supreme at the Burley Walmart of all places on monday lol.

    I didn;t have a chance to stop by the Mtn. Home Walmart, but maybe one weekend when I have nothing better to do I'll make a trip over that direction.

    I'll probably make a quick pass by Walmart this evening to see if they've actually got Shockblast or Cliffjumper yet. I'll also keep my eye out for Alternators Hound.

    There are two Omega Supremes at Federal Way Fred Meyer, one at Milwaukee Target. The Oil Slick vs. Crystal Widow is at the Fairview K-Mart.

    It looked like the Universe figures were well overpriced at $24.99, but the price tag could have been to something else. They also have the new Optimus Prime and Megatron weapons, if you are into those things.

    The price on them were 19.99 I picked up one of the Whirls and the Magna Stampede/ Stockage pack. The Target still had one of the Whirls left, I put it in the back of the stack in case one of you guys wanted it later. I also noticed Target had the Roleplay wepaons, if anyone's into those.

    Most of the Fred Meyers around here have had two Omega Suremes in the last couple days. I might make it up to Mountain Home laster on this evening if I have a chance Guile, if not I'll look forward to reading your report when you get back:)

    Yeah, Whirl is pretty cool despite the lack of articulation (I like articulation anyways)

    Magna Stampede isn't that great...Stockade is alright.

    By the way, I was bored yesterday and went on a massive hunt.

    4 Walmarts: nothing (Although The one on State Street and Glenwood Has one Omega Supreme and the Roleplay weapons)

    5 Fred Meyers: Nothing.

    I'm about ready to bite the bullet and start ordering toys from the 'net. The shipping costs are undoubtedly less then the gas I waste trying to search all these different stores....

    Its a dryspell here where I'm staying at in California too. I've seen only one hound and one cliffjumper in the last 2 months and thats it. But I see stacks of Landmines where I used to see only one. Give it some time, they'll get to us eventually.

    Good news for all you guys, I stopped by the Overland Walmart this morning about 6:30, and they had one Alternators Hound. I hid it up above on the top shelf next to an Energon Landmine. Hopefully it's still there for one of you!
