    Still haven't pulled the trigger on that Unite Warriors Computron.

    What are the chances the Takara Technobots will get a US release under Power of the Primes?

    Just when I pre-ordered Titans Return voyager Prime and Leader Sixshot, I run into them both locally. After not finding them for months, suddenly they pop up on shelves to mock me. Saw voyager Prime at the Blaine TRU a few weeks ago and TWO Sixshot at the Brooklyn Center Walmart of all places earlier this week.

    Has the Walgreens clone two pack even been sighted or bought locally yet? I'd like to get them sometime this year. . .

    Have not seen anything new in the TF section (have yet to see a Seaspray on shelves, plenty of Cosmos though), and most stores I've been to still have wave 1 of The Last Night figures, bah.

    Signs point to no. Any PotP sets would likely include compatibility with the PotP grimmick.

    What is the PotP gimmick? I haven't been keeping up to date. Power Engines?

    They've replaced Titanmasters with Primemasters. They're the exact same figure, a little robot that folds into a "head" but now the figures all have armor/chambers to plug them in instead of using them as heads.

    Also, all of the Voyagers are torsos and Deluxes are limbs again.

    Man, I just got mine off Toy Dojo. Prolly paid a bit more than WalGreens, but now I don't have to like, y'know, go to Walgreens.

    Woo! So I got myself a G1 Wheeljack coming in the mail from a seller I found here on the TFW boards along with a Sideswipe.

    Wheeljack has everything other than his spoiler pieces (wings, missile launchers, missiles), and looks to be in pretty good condition from the photos I saw. Hopefully finding those parts won't be too difficult.

    And why is G1 Cliffjumper so freaking expensive compared to all the other minibots!? Even the keychain re-issue goes for a chunk.

    Sorry I missed FrankieCon this time - sounds like it was a good time!

    I feel like it's been forever since I've been in town. Time to start catching up on what's in stock where!

    Story of my life. The universe has decided that FrankieCon will only occur on weekends when I'm busy.

    Not much of interest at the Burnsville TRU or Target. The Target did have a Krok and Quake.

    Absolutely. My November is usually pretty full up but if push comes to shove I can try to send einhazard in my place.

    Walgreens off 169 & Pioneer has those big cyberverse type figures. I forget what they are called. Prime, Prowl, BB, and Jetfire.

    How much did you pay on TD? I checked a few WGs some weeks ago and their TF section is getting barren, not even Titans Return deluxes were found.
    I don't mind checking the WG in downtown Minneapolis since I work down there 5 days a week.

    I wouldn't be too worried about Walgreens yet. Brainstorm was pretty easy to find once he got rolling. If I know people are interested I can keep my eyes peeled and pick them up.

    Sorry for the late post... But, Big thanks to Jeremy and Frankie's for a great day again! Awesome to see all who showed up. Was so surprised to win two of the grand prizes.. My niece's will love Groot. Was cool to finally not be last with my Trypticon in the race.... But, didn't expect my power source upgrade to dominate as well as it did. All in all a great day. Thanks again.
