    Meijer's rocks. Non Mid-western people don't understand. 24 hours, food, toys, guns! Ok, I don't need guns, but if I did..

    Plus Meijer brand products are the bomb. They even have Garfield on their ice cream now! Their potato bread is the best!

    My only complaint about Meijer is that the Royal Oak (on Coolidge btwn 14 and 15) had about 8 Paradon Medics on the shelf since christmas and haven't yet got another HOC case since!!

    Thank you (and curse you!) TFMaster!

    edit: I found out my girlfriend went JUST YESTERDAY to that Wal-Mart and didn't find anything new. They must have put it out last night. Curses, again! :)

    Anyhoo,they must have just stoked them last night because they weren't there last night when I went there B4 they closed.

    But at least now you guys heard the gun and the Race can begin!


    Good luck!!

    Still looking for Skywarp though...

    I went to the Troy Wal-Mart yesterday with no sucsess. The girl in the toy dept told me that they only send new stuff when they're almost sold out of the stuff on the shelves. That was they never have any overstock.

    Meanwhile we're stuck with tons of Demolisher and Cyclonuses!! Good thing that they "Rolledback" their prices. Maybe those will sell quicker now.

    The Troy Wal-Mart sucks though. I've never seen anything past Supercon Optimus there. The never got either the Ruination or Dinobot exclusives either. But it's close to my house, so I check it often anyways.

    Question to you Michigan people: Did you ever find the Wal-Mart exclusives in town? If so, where?

    I FINALLY found the Dinobots at the 12 and Van Dyke store. I've never seen Urban Camo Ruination.

    I saw the Camo-Ruination at the Taylor Wal-Mart, but didn't grab it when I had the chance. Only saw one there and never saw it again. Have yet to see any Dinobots.

    Hey all. I stopped at the Walgreens on 15 and Groesbeck to day and found the HOC Ironhide and Grimlock. They were the only two figures there. I already have a Grimlock but still bought the other one. So I know have an extra one that I am willing to trade for the HOC Galvatron. Not going to put him on ebay or anything, just want to complete my set. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    Nothing, nothing, and nothing. Went out and no Wheeljack or HOCs to be seen yet for me. But for those G1 collectors, the TRU in Dearborn on Michigan ave. had a boat load of commemorative cars there. Then had Red Alert, Silver Streak, Autobot Jazz, and Prowl, also had a few Skywarps and of course PMOP.

    I went to Meijer's today on Coolidge btwn 14 and 15 and they had a Jetfire marked for $7.99!! None of the others were marked that way so it was, of course, a mistake. I took it to the register, though and they honored the price!!!

    That was the highlight of my day. The lowest was either finding a dead squirrel in my basement in my old stuffed animals or my brakes going out while I was driving.

    Time to make somemore micigan transfans happy again!

    First off,Meijers in westland/Garden City on Warren Rd. has Some TF:U Razor claws in on the top shelf along with TF:U Optimus Primal.

    Also on Warren Rd. in Westland,Target has Armada Tidalwave!!!

    Got mine today and there is at least one to two left.I don't know about other surrounding Targets in close areas to this one but you should find em if you go a.s.a.p.

    In the meantime,since your friendly TFmaster has informed you of this please keep an eye out for the new minicon sets and let me know if you find em.I still need them.

    So untill next time I go looking for hauls....Gooday!

    My Haul today!

    Had a long day, but it paid off in the end.

    I found Tidal Wave at the Target in Troy on Coolidge and 15. They had about 3-4 left as off 10pm tonight. They also had the "sticker" prime.

    Later tonight I went to Meijer at Coolidge and 14 in Royal Oak and found Razorclaw. They only had one, and I wasn't going to buy it cause the Transformers logo on the box was bent.. but then I looked at the price.. $12.99!!!! I think someone mixed the 1 and the 2. Anyways.. the cashier honored and now I have a nifty (and cheap!) Razorclaw!!

    This is the 2nd time I've gotten mismarked TFs at that Meijers. Look carefully!
