    Seems a few places have put the new toys out early for the new movie...anyone seen any around MI?

    What do you all think of these new figures? Deluxes at $20? Easy pass for me; I'll wait for a sale or them to show up at TJ Maxx lol.

    I really think I'm being priced out of this market; just don't have the money to buy like I used to and distribution really seems to bite the big one of late. :(

    The distribution issues have really put me off going out hunting, all these months of TR Wave 1 and empty pegs are a real downer. Hasn't stopped me from hoping I'll spot something when when I'm out for other reasons, but it's sucks to consistently come back with nothing.

    I really hope that the TLK stuff doesn't push out TR, shitty distribution aside, I've been loving the line and am really looking forward to Wave 4, 5, and beyond (assuming we've got another year or so of TR coming). Tho I saw that pre-orders just went up for Wave 4, so hopefully we'll start to see them en masse soon at retail.

    $20 for deluxes just feels wrong. Like when TRU had CW limbs for $22 (I forget if that was Sky Reign or Combaticons), not cool. I'm not too hyped for TLK toys tho, so I'll prolly pass on them.

    Picked up RID Soundwave at commerce Walmart tonight around 1am, there was still another Soundwave, 1 Blurr, 1 Skywarp and the rest of the usual rid suspects, a few wave 3 TR deluxes, but that was it. Commerce Meijer is Legends Bee-Palooza!

    I wonder if anyone will eventually buy 1, if it was like 40 or 50, I wouldn't mind having it for the collection.

    Yeah, that was there last weekend, but I never looked at the price. I think it'll be there for a while!

    I tried the Meijer at 8 and Haggerty this morning, nothing NEW new, but there were a couple Hot Rods, Triggerhappys, and a Twinferno, looked like a couple each of all of the wave 2 titan masters, 2 Astrotrains, and some of the RiD15 Combiner Force wave 1 deluxes.

    The Meijer at 8 and Woodward has Blaster, Megatron, 2 Optimus (1 prinstine box, 1 kinda torn up box, but it looked complete and not actually opened), a couple Hot Rods and Triggerhappys, and a Twinferno out in the open, then found a BB and Kickback tucked behind a couple other non-TF figures. I know nothing of the Power Ranger stuff, but they had an OG Pink Ranger and either Space, Turbo, or SPD Yellow Ranger that looked neat too.

    I was kinda tempted by the Megatron, but ended up leaving everything on the shelves.

    If you are into customizing, a little bit of paint turns that Megatron into a really beautiful piece of art for your shelves. I can't recommend him enough. IMG_20170112_220234_edit_edit.jpg IMG_20170410_180730_edit.jpg

    I didn't see any signs, it probably ended on Saturday. Nothing in the Mperks either (at least, not in mine anyway) :( 

    You make a very persuasive argument here. Is the OP worth it too?

    @Effion I would suggest Megatron first, Optimus looks horrible in the box, but he's actually a lot of fun.
