    Has anyone seen a mpm bumblee lately? Still looking to get him, passed up on him before, but now with Tru possibly closing forever I need to get him.

    Almost went there at lunch today, but ran out of time. Stopped by the Bloomfield Hills Target on Telegraph on the way home...the only Elita One and Hun-Gurr there came home with me.

    Have there been any sightings lately of the vanilla Rodimus? Only saw it a couple of times at Target around first week of January...thinking wave one will be skipped by a lot of places and Rodimus will be the one everyone's clamoring for in a few months.

    might of missed it, but was a figure of the beat up VW bus decepticon from TLK ever made? Don't really collect movie bots anymore (Have a ton that I want to sell though from the first couple of flicks) but I do collect VW bug and bus related stuff.

    No they never made Dreadbot. There's s chance he could come out in the studio series depending on how long that ends up going.

    Just picked up Rodimus Unicronus from Southgate Wal-Mart. There was one left and one Leader OP.

    There was also a returned Grimlock that had Titan Master Vector Prime plugged into one of the combiner feet. A nice bonus for the person who grabs it.

    this whole Toys R Us thing f$#kin SUCKS. Some of my most fondest childhood memories are of TRU. At least my kids got to grow up with a lil bit of Tru in their lives.

    Sad to see all the toy stores I went to as a kid all go away t. Toys R Us is going the way of Children's Palace. My favorite place was an awesome store in 12 Oaks mall called Circus World. That's where I first saw the Ultra Magnus and Rodimus Prime toys before the movie came out. Confused the heck out of me at the time. Why would there be a white Optimus Prime? I also remember being utterly stunned by the hug Fort Max box. Memories.

    Walmart, Target and Meijer just aren't the same. Neither is on-line shopping.

    Monday is the day they find out if the entire company is going under. I was told AA TRU is closing April 15th. That’s assuming they don’t fold tomorrow.

    They’re closing regardless of the court decision?
