    Found a few Japanese G1 re-issues at GEN CON this weekend, and an Optimus Prime bust. But on the whole nothing too flashy with Transformers.

    Both Optimus Prime and Megatron were mentioned in the "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" seminar, by a woman nonetheless. The reaction from the rest of the crowd was "She's the perfect woman." 8)

    Wheeljack finally found at Wal-mart in Taylor. They also had Hoist, Airrazor and Terrorsaur. I only took the Wheeljack, and they had one of each of the otrhers left. Also found Airrazor and Terrorsaur at Target in Taylor. Still no Unicron, but was told that Target was getting their christmas toy setups around next week.

    I also collect silver strikes, but that's a bit off-topic. Comics and Robotech stuff, too. But mostly just the battloid figures from Robotech. I try to avoid "collecting" because I know I'll never have a "complete" collection, just lots and lots of incomplete collections. :( 

    If anyone's ever interested in meeting up one day, I'd be glad to host. Let me know.

    I found Unicron yesterday at the Target at Coolidge and 15 mile road. I called TFMaster and told him about it.

    Why he's playing with his balls, I have no idea :) 

    Those were the only two there, but I suspect they probably had more in the back since they take up so much shelf space. They also had Armada Hoist and Airrazor.

    I'm still looking for Overload and Wheeljack in the Metro Detroit area. If anyone finds extras of these, please post here.

    HOC Wave 3 in Lansing? Anyone?

    I've been looking for these for months. The Meijers and Walgreens in Lansing have only had Arcee's and Paradron Medics out.

    Has anyone seen any of the new wave? I've seen stuff on the web about wave 4 already. Any info is much appreciated!

    Sorry man... I live in Lansing... and have been looking for wave 3 .... and no luck. This wave may have passed us by... and wave 4 may just do the same.

    Best bet is to order them from Big Bad Toystore.

    Well, it's probably not that important now, but I did find two Tidal Waves at the TRU on 11 Mile/Telegraph/I-696/12 Mile in Southfield today. They're both tucked behind Jetfire.

    So no one wants to get together to meet face-to-face? :)

    Well,I did Kinda beg him to tell me if he saw it and if so thenI would "Make it worth his while"

    So for doing so and after I got him I said thanks ad that he now have 3 duplicates of the World's Smallest that I have of Bumblebee,Sideswipe and Prime.So it's not like he isn't getting payed handsomly in a form for something so simple as information.

    But hey,If I see another Bug,I'll let you know...I'll just...


    ...oh wait....:ev:  I don't have your number!!:lol

    I like the idea of a get together, we can put mugs to nicknames and all. Let me know if this is gonna happen. Also, has anyone here ever heard of ATOM? It's a toy collectors club in Michigan.

    I've not heard of ATOM. I really don't get into toy collecting too much. Mostly because of $$ and the "incomplete collection" thing.

    I'm around just about every weekend, and I live out in Waterford, which is immediately west of Pontiac (think west of M-59 and Telegraph). I'm guessing there's a few of you in the nearby area, since you've visited stores I've been too.

    And I'm still looking for Wheeljack.

    I don't know if there are any Gundam fans here in MI sightings... but I found the first of Superior Deffender figures.

    Super cool little guys... the two I found were $10

    Still no Unicron here. I keep hearing from the Targets around me that they will be re-stocking for Christmas, this week or next. Also TRU told me it's official release date was the 10th.

    I went to about 6 different TRUs, Wal-Marts, and Targets in the Troy/Madison Heights area and found nothing newer than an Armada Airrazor. Still no sign of more Unicrons, Wheeljacks, Skywarps, or Overloads.

    Saw overload at Target in Taylor, and was told over the phone that the ypsi Taylor had Overload as well. (called looking for Unicron) Ikado, I'm looking for a Wheeljack for ya too, since I finally got mine last week.
