    I'm still looking for G1 Red Alert re-issue.

    What are the mini-con names for the Emergency and Air Attack teams? I don't keep track that closely to know them all.

    Thanks!

    Ebay:
    Emergency Team (Firebot, Makeshift, Prowl)

    Air Military Team (Thunderwing, Gunbarrel, Terradive)

    I'll keep my eye out for the Red Alert reissue. I haven't seen one yet, only Prowl and Skywarp.

    Tell me if you guys see the new Transformers: Universe figs, and where!

    It's what you do when you can fly. You cuttlebots are too slow.

    Hope you got a Red Alert.

    P.S. I can't seem to push my Red Alert back together. There's a "gap" between the back and front halves. I can't see what's preventing it from going together, and I don't want to apply much more force. Any ideas?

    Lets see you be fast underwater! I actually didn't get a Red Alert because I have a pretty nice original already. I'm tempted to get the Prowl, but I think I'll just get the Takara one to match my Smokescreen.

    As for RA's "gap", I have no idea. Maybe you should just wiggle it.

    In case any of you haven't got the Smokejumper and Dreadwind set from Target, or you want another for customs (TFmaster I am looking at you!) I found them on final clearence at Target in Dearborn for $6.84. There were about 3 left and the boxes were not the best.

    Powerlinx Prime Found!

    I found ONE Powerlinx Prime at the Target in Troy at 15 (Maple) and Coolidge Hwy. I didn't buy it (too expensive for my blood) but I thought maybe one of you might want it!

    Also, I found those TF:U figures at the Wal*Mart in Taylor, thanks!!!

    I'm still on the lookout for the Emergency and Air Assault Mini-cons, Armada Skywarp, Overload, Hoist, and Wheeljack.

    Re: Powerlinx Prime Found!

    Well,is the new Supercon prime with the autobot insignia the one that is hipped with Airrazor,Wheeljack and Hoist?

    If so then someone got to them B4 me at the Garden City Target.

    And if that is the case then start keeping an eye out for them.They should be hitting Michigan soon.

    HHello all. New member here. Has anyone seen anymore HOC wave 3 yet? I found Hot Rod, Soundwave, and Grimlock, but thats all so far. And those were at several different Walmarts. Meijers keeps getting in more wave 2's. Still need Galvatron and Iron Hide.

    hey cap, welcome aboard!! I am still looking for HOC Wave 3, have only seen one Grimlock and that was awhile ago. Going to Ann Arbor and Troy later, so might get lucky. Saw TF:U at Toys R Us in Southgate all figures there. Taylor Walmart only had Reptilian left. And Taylor Target had nothing at all new. Forgot to check Meijer though.

    That is always how it goes! heheh, but atleast think about it like this, won't have to go to the stores looking for them, cause you know you will be getting them.

    The only problem I have with getting them through BBTS is the price. I mean Meijers sells the HOC for $3.99 each figure. BBTS is like $5 for each and have to buy the whole set plus shipping. I am on a fairly limited budget so I guess I just have to wait. :(

    After going to 25+ Walgreens and Meijer's in the area, I decided to just get the set from BBTS. I also ordered wave 4, so I'll be getting 12 new guys plus Fort Max in the mail soon!

    BTW I saw Powerlinx Prime again, this time at the Target in Madison Heights on John R and 14 near Oakland Mall. His box was beat up, though.

    I went to WizzyWig's in Ann Arbor today (For those that don't know, it's a Japanese toy and Anime store) and they had nothing at all!!! All they had were a couple of Car Robot 2000 figs and MEGA SCF of Armada!! (I went looking for Mega SCF G1 Optimus and Starscream) Then I went to Sommerset where I learned that FAO had closed in January. Then went to Oakland mall and there was nothing. Hit a Target, a TRU and a Walgreens in Madison Heights and still noghting!! I had the worst hunting day ever. All I wanted was to find some HOC!! God Mocks me! :cry 


    EDIT: Found Silverstreak and Jazz at TRU and at Wizzywig's they had about 8 Takara reissue Sideswipes. Plus, if anyone here collects the new Marvel figures, they had 2 Beasts at the TRU.
