    He's around the same height as G1 Blaster, yep. Heck, KFC's Transistor is also the same height!

    Really, cuz he seems way bigger than that, maybe it was just the gigantic box.

    I can take some comparison pics when I get home as long as I remember. XD
    He scales well with the rest of TR, and like I said, he works great as a base. The bases are awwwwesome.

    Picked up a RID Thunderhoof at Sartell WM. Also saw Scoponok, Fracture and Windblade. Also they had PM Prime and Blaster Titan Returns leaders.

    The EP Walgreens off 169 and Pioneer Trail has had 2x each of Highbrow and Chromdome for awhile. I finally caved and grabbed one of each for the extra $5 they charge for TFs. Still one of each left.

    For those of you who like Marvel Legends, Walgreens is usually a good place to find hard to find figures. My wife scored a Rogue ML there just the other day. I'm looking for Wolverine for my friend. I'd appreciate a heads up if anyone spots one.

    EDIT: Oops, didn't see the above post. In any case, they are both still there.

    Yeah, I'm generally not super huge into leader class figures. I'll spring if they actually make (yes, goofy ass G1) scale sense. I think Ultra Magnus and Jetfire are great examples of that. But the Megatron figure, despite being gorgeous, and then Soundwave/Blaster make no sense. CR Galvatron and Ultra Magnus are perfect with my Classics Optimus Prime and Generations Jetfire looks really good being strangled by my CW Bruticus.

    But so far the Decepticon leader classes have been disappointing choices.

    Oh, went to the Maplewood TRU and it was quite disappointing. Just some TR Sentinel Primes and Galvatrons with a few of the current wave deluxes and little else.

    Prolly gonna be out of the collecting game for a bit. Needed a bigger place for my collection, made an offer on a place in Eden Prairie (my wife is firmly convinced that's not the only reason we're looking at houses, but I don't know what other reasons their could be).
    I'm still gonna go with Hasbro stuff, but I'll probably lean back on my 'no repaints' rule, though with all the psuedo-reengineering in TR, that line's a bit blurry.
    Anyhow, wish me luck! :D

    Plymouth Target (the 55 and past the 494) had new Legends class figures. I picked up Rumble (heh, sure), left the rest.

    Not sure if I needed full confirmation from Jer, but I figured we'd do the Sunday October 2nd from 11-3 meetup at Frankie's.

    I grabbed the Brawn and Apeface Titan Masters from Chaska Target, left one Brawn and some wave 1 hanging. They also had some wave 1 deluxes (Blurr and Scourge I think.)

    Got my shipping email from ScrambleCore finally a couple days ago on the Deluxe Groove I ordered back whenever that was. Yay... now I'll have 3. Seeing the shipping email made be think about posting here, which made me realize that I stopped receiving email notifications about this thread since I don't know when. Maybe when they redesigned the site those got messed up?

    Anyway, I don't have a sighting, but actually the opposite. The AoE Leader Grimlock that has been at Shoreview Target since I believe the movie was actually out, is finally gone! Not sure if someone bought it or they finally realized it has been on the shelf for a couple+ years and they pulled it, but it was a bit sad that he's no longer there to greet me every time I go in to look for TFs.

    Hopefully what I posted isn't a repeat but didn't want to have to scour back through weeks of posts to see... ;)

    I will be there with a good selection of figures. If anyone who's going Sunday, let me know if you're looking for anything. If I have it, I'll bring it up with me.
