    Stopped by my local Fred Meyer's (NW US retail store) for lunch, and just happened to walk over to the toy section...

    There was a large selection of (wave 1?) Real Gear toys, both Cyber Stompers, the plush toys (Softimus Prime and Slumblebee), Voyager class transformers (Blackout and Ratchet), Legends and the Optimus Prime Blaster.

    I picked up three of the Real Gear (Longview, Speed-dial and Booster X10), the two Voyagers and the Plush guys. So far I really like the real gear guys, I opened up Booster and he's an awesome stand-in for Lazerbeak and the like. The Plush toys are SMALL. Like, Beanie baby small. They're not bad, but I think I was hoping for something more like a Popple. Remember those... Oh Popples, how I miss you.

    Pictures and receipt to follow!

    Very disappointing. I was hoping they would be 3-4 times that size.

    Here's those pictures I promised! Sorry for the delay, but it looks like Vicegrip found the same assortment I did. Mine was at the Ballard Fred Meyer, but Greenwood had nothing. Go figure!

    I wish the plushes were bigger, but those will do I guess. Hope they make more, and can we see them transformed?

    Note that the four are from two different waves, but they were sold together.

    This is perfect timing. I'm heading down to watch the Mariners/Yankees game this coming sunday so I'll have to make some sidetrips to try and find these guys.
