    Voyager Megs and Hound at AV Walmart. The nearby Target had two Leader Primes and a Megs.

    Nothing else of real note.

    If you folks are into this, there are some filthy deals on the TFCC store right now: Transformers Club Store

    Depth Charge is $8 (TFCC must be beyond desperate to discharge their stocks of this blue oaf), Waruders are $40 (no idea who these buggers are, but folks are freaking out over them in the Sales and Deals thread), and the 2015 Botcon Boxset is basically 1/3 the price, making each figure ~$30 instead of ~$80. Shame that I only want that movieverse Megatron homage out of the entire set.

    Osaka. That place is awesome. Cheap and Den Den Town has a few really awesome Transformers resources. Herogangu, Jungle and Mandarake are chocked full.

    Minnetonka TRU got Trypticon. One left as of Thursday afternoon. Since it's the same as the Takara, I elected to save the money.

    The only thing I'd be hoping for is a cheap Unite Warriors Lynxmaster, which wouldn't fit in most luggage.

    Yeah. The place I lived is closest to Osaka. I spent a fair amount of time there. It's not bad :) 

    Definitely not. Haha... Sorry.

    My wife was in Rochester, so she grabbed me Twintwist from TRU there. According to her she didn't see anything else but she might have overlooked some stuff.
    Glad I finally have a Topspin/Twintwist pair!

    Was in the area so dropped by MW TRU right before closing and they had a full set of Misfire Dlx wave, picked up a Misfire and Twin Twist. So tomorrow morning there should still be 1 Misfire, 1 Twin Twist and 2 Windblade left.

    EDIT: I swung up there this morning and picked up all four. Keeping one Windblade and the Twintwist for myself, and snagged the other two for einhazard.

    I finally caved and ordered a Terradive off eBay. Not sure who it was that was trying to sell me their copy all these years that never worked out.

    Got my black Prime and Joe set off HTS earlier. Thankfully the site allowed me to change my password this AM.

    I only bought the Marvel Legends set off HTS, I was thinking of getting the Joe set too but $50 for mostly cardboard was too much for me.

    TR Windblade gets a bad wrap. Other than an odd profile in jet mode she looks way less blocky in person.

    Bums me out both Arcee and Nautica are exclusives because Windblade needs some buddies.
