    I was up in Fort Gratiot after band practice yesterday and the Target out there had two Ultra Magnuses (Magnii?) and one Shockwave, as well as a few Botbot troops. They now have one Magnus and one fewer Botbot than they did before I got there.

    Kroger stores are clearing out their Holiday goods, and some Transformers along with it. I got some Poter of the Primes stuff, Pime Masters $2.10-2.40, Legends class Battleslash for around $3 and DX Slag/Slug for just over $6. I got my nephew the $25 Cyberverse Grimlock for just $7.50. And I had seen some Studio Series tagged 50% off, but they could have been lower since my Slag was tagged 50% and was about 70% off. BumbleBee movie merch was also on sale, toys included.

    That all said, prices varied betweens some stores. One store didn't put Cyberverse on sale at all, another didn't discount Bee movie stuff. Hit and miss.

    have to check kroger up here...they don't usually have the same deals as you guys down there but I did get some of those prime masters after Easter I think it was for half off

    other than that, both walmart and target had nothing new and plenty of old stuff on clearance...might see new stuff by april lol

    WalMart in Novi by Twelve Oaks Mall has the remnants of Siege wave one. One Megatron and a couple Sideswipes and Hounds.

    I grabbed that Magnus at about 11pm yesterday. Thanks for the update, I didn't think it was still going to be there but my hope was not for nothing.

    Looks like lots of Targets are resetting their toy aisles this week. Ann Arbor-Saline has leader and voyager Siege now. One Magnus and Shockwave left. Also a Prime and Megatron.

    On a personal note, this will probably be my last sighting as a Michigander. Moving to southern California this weekend which is a TF wasteland compared to here. Too much competition and relatively fewer stores for the number of people who live there.

    I wish you all happy transforming for many years to come.

    Just set out within the last hour. Call them and they’ll probably hold them for you.

    Thanks, dude! I work about 10 minutes from there, so I just jumped in my car and now I have a Shockwave and a Black Series Bossk!

    I'm really surprised by how little of the SS repaint waves I've seen. ROTF Screamer is everywhere, but I just saw KSI Sentry for the first time yesterday at Meijer on 26 as well as a second DOTM Ratchet, and still haven't seen shadow raider.
    It's annoying because I was hoping these would be shelfwarmers that would go on clearance (ROTF Starscream might so though at least, so that's good) since I don't really like paying full for a mold I already own, but now that'll be a little more difficult.

    (And also holy hell that Meijer had like 5 waves of the Blackout and Grimlocks, they go ham on first wave orders)

    I might head out there after work, or just check the west Saginaw store since that’s more on my way.

    I’m pretty impressed with some of the engineering going on in the larger Siege figures. OP, Megs and Hound each have some clever tricks to them.

    I lived in Northern California for a few years in the early 00's. That area was no picnic for TF's (all toys in general) either. Was glad to get back.

    Good luck on move!

    Brickseek showed that Taylor Walmart had the G1 reissue Optimus Prime. Of course I go there and there is nothing on the shelves in the transformers section. I decided to go down the Lego aisle and I started looking at the other side of the aisle as well which has Hot wheels and the like, and low and behold there are six G1 Optimus Primes on a lower shelf. I guess the employees stocking them thought they were just trucks and not transformers. I left five of them for the rest of you.
