    No problem at all! It's too bad they didn't have more Hounds....I know he's still pretty rare. Glad you found it!

    Found them yesterday:)  Fireflight seems made pretty cheap, but I actually like Strika a lot better then I thought I would.

    The new Energon stuff had better show up soon, or I'm going to blow all my spending money on sub-par universe stuff to get my TF fix!:lol

    Welcome back!

    I feel fortunate enough to have found Hound and Silverstreak....but I seriously want the new Energon stuff to come out :cry 

    I shouldn;t really be bitching since my bank account is crying in relief as I'm crying in dismay;)

    No new sightings really....but I thought I'd let you guys know that TRU here does indeed that the 30% off sale....Just wanted to let you know in case you guys collect the G1 reissues. I grabbed a Hoist for a little over $19. Still spendy, but not as bad as over $30.

    i don't know if anybone here is a halo 2 fan but i figured i'd list this anyway.

    i'm pretty sure there is going to be a van or car passing out halo 2 demos on

    tuesday the 24th all over the country!!!


    i have everything listed below how to find out where.....



    I heard about the fake site that is listed on the bottom of the halo 2 trailer in theaters and..................

    if you didn't hear about it, after the trailer, when the xbox logo comes up... on the bottom of the screen, under the logo it says www.xbox.com... but then it switches to ... www.ilovebees.com .... then back to ... www.xbox.com

    the site is supposed to be hacked, and there is a timer counting down to tuesday august 24th also there is writing that says........

    HALT - MODULE CORE HEMORRHAGE SYSTEM PERIL DISTRIBUTED REFLEX. STRONG INTRUSIVE INCLINATION. COUNTDOWN TO WIDE AWAKE AND PHYSICAL :

    if you switch the letters around it says

    INDEX THIS IRONCLAD PREDICTION : HALO TWO SINGLE PLAYER DEMO CD-ROM DISK INCURSION AT AUGUST TWENTY FOUR. EARTH WILL NEVER BE THE SAME."



    i heard about all of this, so i decided to have a go at this site.

    after about 1/2 hour of searching for clues i ended up on this page...


    www.ilovebees.com/links.html


    which has alot of GPS (global positioning system) coordinates on it.

    check for one near you.

    here is a site to get a location by using the GPS numbers...also MAKE SURE to put the - symbol in front of the second set of numbers.


    http://www.mapquest.com/maps/latlong.adp



    i knew that my area (milwaukee) was about 043 -088 ... so i looked for one around there. Sure enough i found one.

    also directly underneath each coordinate there is a time.

    the time for mine happens to be 15:35 PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)

    to check the time difference go to www.ebay.com

    their time is in PDT

    so whatever is going to happen is going to start when the timer runs out

    and at each location at that specific time....

    I went to other forums on the subject... to see if i could find out anything else, but most of them are messing with the game.

    but i did find out that there were originally different coordinates. so i looked up the original milwaukee coordinates... and it was 61st and north.

    now i looked at a few GPS sites. and both of the milwaukee locations are in the middle of the street. So I'm guessing that there will be a van or something giving out something. Hopefully a playable demo

    alot of people are thinking waaay tooo hard about this, but I figure if they are doing something they won't make it too teribly difficult to figure out, because then nobody would show up.

    I think it's a safe bet something will happen at these locations at those times. so I'm leaving work at noon on tuesday, hopefully I'll see a bunch of people there also.

    ok so i have a time and a place. I don't think there is anything else to figure, unless you want to play the ARG (alternate reality game)

    I take that back.....the Fred meter on Glenwood had two Energon Cliffjumpers and one Shockblast. I purchased one of each, so there is still one Cliffjumper there as of this afternoon if anyone is interested.

    I'm glad you finally found Cliffjumper and Shockblast. You'll have to let me know if either of them is worth the money. There's nothing new at TRU, Overland Walmart, Target, Chinden Fred Meyer, or Fairview Fred Meyer. And if you are wondering what happened to the last reissue Skywarp that's been gathering dust on TRU's shelf for so long, I bought it.
