    Nice, I'm glad Skywarp finally found a home....I was tempted to buy it many a time, but never could quite bring myself to.

    Shockblast is definitely worth the money. Pretty decent articulation, plus I love the single eye light piping. it's a cool toy. Cliffjumper is alright, but if you're looking to get it, I'd suggest waiting until it goes on sale.

    The last time I found nothing new, I found Shockblast and Cliffjumper. So here's another try:

    "Nothing New Anywhere"

    Good luck...I hope something new will show up soon. I'm getting tired of seeing the same toys at the same stores all the time.

    Meridian Wal Mart has a Demolishor, Snowcat, and Prowl in the new Powerlinq packaging but no new figures.

    Hopefully that means Bulkhead TowLine and Downshift will be coming soon....

    I'll be checking out the WalMarts late tonight/ early tomorrow in hopes maybe they restock.

    Thanks for the update zynordar. It seems like Prime is destined to become a shelf warmer because of the price:(

    Picked up Shockblast at Meridian Fred Meyer earlier, had one cliffjumper left as well. Overland wal mart didnt have anything new except the same figs in the new packaging as the other wal mart did. Hit up both targets as well and nothing new.

    No sorry I got the only one they had, from the looks of it him and cliffjumper are one per case when they put him out. Might wanna try Nampa Fred Meyers I'm willing to bet there's one there now as well.
    And grimlock...I think he rocks, not much on the alt modes but he just looks badass!

    I totally agree about the alt mode....I like it because it looks pretty menacing but in robot mode, Shockblast is the Gem of the Energon megas so far!

    I went around to the local WalMarts, Targets and a couple Fred Meyers yesterday evening during my labor day boredom....nothing new, but every WalMart had Prowl, Snowcat, Rodimus and Demolishor in the new packaging thats already popped up.

    I picked up a Shockblast today at Broadway Shopko. They get new stuff in once in a blue moon. I agree that he has an awesome robot mode. I can't figure out what kind of vehicle he's supposed to be when he transforms.

    Congrats, Mirage....I think his alt mode is a robot folded up to look like a piss poor tank-thingey;)

    Thanks. Actually, I've found that if you turn him into a modified "base", you can have some other Decepticon man the gun and it looks pretty good. I really wish that he could bend his left arm. It severly limits his articulation and also causes him to tend to fall to his left.

    Cool, I'll definitely try the base idea. I agree about the articulation in his gun arm...even an elbow joint would have improved it.

    I haven't been to TRU in a long time actually....I've been waiting for a Re-Issue Sideswipe or Ricoshet sighting somewhere in Washington or Oregon before I head in that direction again.

    BUT I just stopped by the Overland Wal-Mart and they had one Alternators Dead End, two Hounds and quite a few Silverstreaks. I bought the Dead End but the Hounds are still there. Only problem is the boxes are beat up to Bejzessus and back...
