    Hey guys! Kind of unrelated to transformers, but are there any good hobby shops in the East Lansing area? Mostly looking for Tamiya paints so I don't have to order online. If TLK wave 2 ever hits here, I want to try repainting Megs.

    there is a little hobby shop in the Frandor plaza. I think it's called Just4Fun. They have R/C & model cars and I believe they carry Tamiya paints.

    *edit: after googling to make sure I had the right name, they list it as closed, so I'm not sure if they are still there.

    here's the address:
    Just 4 Fun Hobbies and Comics
    300 N. Clippert St.
    Suite 17
    Frandor Shopping Center
    Lansing, MI 48912

    Though I've never went to see if they were still open myself, it appears the shop closed on 3/25/17.

    The Fortress is in East Lansing...they are a gaming store (Magic, 40K, etc.) but I know they have paints..not sure if they have that brand but worth a check.

    There is fortress in East Lansing, Adj games in South Lansing, and evolution games in West Lansing. None of them carry the paints you are looking for. They do carry games workshop paints and a variety of others.

    Thanks guys! Might just have to order online for the paints then. Wish there were better shops around here. Even back at home (Milford) there isn't a whole lot. Just the shop on Highland Rd. near the MJR.

    Saw Skullitron and the stealth bomber Megatron at TRU yesterday. They also had a pair of TR voyager Megatron and a single Topspin. There were also legends size 2-packs of Op and Grimlock and BB and Megatron that I hadn't seen yet.

    Found RID Legion Blurr at the Kroger off 26 mile in Shelby Township. There is one left.
    Weirdly, none of the figures in the wave have a cardboard border at the bottom of the plastic bubble.

    Ann Arbor Toys R Us has Planet Cybertron but nothing else new. I think he looked better in the original Primus colors.

    I snagged the RID Menasor set when Amazon briefly had him up on Prime Day. There must have been a glitch since i got him for over half off. That was a good thing since its pretty awful. He displays decently but has no real play value.

    I think I'll be holding off on further purchases until the movie masterpieces come out. Any idea what MPM-04 Prime is going to cost yet?

    I grabbed one at WalMArt in Saginaw and then the next day they were all gone (there were 4) so I imagine they hit the net for scalper prices :(

    I'm still planning on coming out. It's hard to commit to a time, as I have to pick up a car my buddy is selling me at noon. As soon as that's done in heading out

    Only thing worthy of mentioning in Okemos is one Cybertron (purple primus) @ TRU
