    Please move this if it needs to be. But I wanted to let my fellow customizers here know that Fry's electronics had a ton of alt ricochet, skids and rollbar(I am sure at other stores they have verity) for $16.50. I did not Fry's had toys. They aslo have most of the movie line allspark battle repaints and new deluxes.

    Tons, not tones!

    That is a super electionic store. Kinda like best buy on crack. I haven't checked on line, but the might have some stuff. Not really sure what this is on line, but hey. My bad, they are $16.90. I would still trust going into the store better, for the obvious reasons.

    I think I'll order a Grimlock online if it's in stock later... I have one, and I'm not a customizer, but I could use it as trade fodder. Too bad I don't have a Fry's around here.

    Yeah it's probably not grimlock from that #81328, it'll probably be skids/rico (or maybe Sunstreaker).

    To let everyone know, if you order on line, it states "assortment iteam". The pic of grimmy is just that, a pic. I e-mailed them to ask.

    "Assortment item" means it's anything from the hasbro assortment #81328

    What this means in theory is that it could be either Prowl, Sunstreaker, Skids, Rollbar, Optimus, or Ricochet.

    What it means in practice is that it's either Rollbar or Ricochet.

    Out of those, I only really want Rollbar. I don't think I'm willing to do the coin toss. It was a nice idea, but not worth going through with.

    Too bad they don't have TONS of stores ;) 

    Not much good to anyone on the east coast, unless you're taking orders for all your fellow nerds :)

    East cost? I am near altlanta. There is one about 30 min. from where I am. Heck, I might take orders as well if enough people want something. Unfourtunatley, it takes almost 1/4 tank of for me to make the trip. But like I said, if anybody needs something, and I can get enough people pay help out with gas, I'll get some. Just p.m. me.

    It's not like most of us have not done that for each other before. There is just something cool about buying $200.00 worth of transformers and not feeling guilty!

    my fry's only has tons of skids they were 24.99 retail but I bought 2 recently and they do sale price matching for 30 days after purchase, so I might head over there to get my $18 back or just get another skids for bashing
