    I used a gift card at TRU yesterday without any problems.

    They have had a bunch of complaints on their Facebook page, it's weird.

    They're also considering chapter 11 (renegotiate debts) and not chapter 7 (liquidation), so they're likely not going anywhere in the short run.

    I look forward to having conflicting plans. XD

    See previous. XD

    Titans Return Legends Cloudraker & Wingspan Exclusive ( Overseas release )

    $40. Looks like their out of stock. I thought a couple other places had it too, but I forget where.

    In other news, I've spent the weekend trying to get my current job to renegotiate some things while I have another job offer on the table. It was a bit of an uphill battle, but I walked out of it with a promotion that I've been gunning for that had gotten pushed back and more money than I initially asked for. All of this occurred while my sister's kids and my cousin's kids (5 total, between the ages of 2-7) were staying at my place and loudly screaming in my ears because I'm the fun uncle with all the transformers and they really needed me around for everything.

    I never thought I'd say this, but I think I'm okay not talking about transformers for a couple of days. At least with gradeschoolers. XD

    Also, nothing of interest at bloomington target or in that one toy store the in theme park in MOA. They do have TF-branded chocolate chip cookies, though?

    Was in OPH yesterday for the first time in a few years and stopped by Target. There's a Five Below right next door now. Isn't that the discount store we didn't have that got some cool shit from time to time ?

    I imagine they want to at least try and survive one more Black Friday/Holiday cycle.

    Speaking of TRU, have there been any more sightings of the Misfire/Twintwist/Windblade wave there?

    Minnetonka TRU and edina Target both have nothin' new.
    I haven't seen Misfire/Twintwist/Windblade since that one case that Bville TRU seemed to get. I'm guessing they're still getting through the backlog. Got a feeling we'll be seeing PotP before we ever see Overlord. Weird that the figure that would probably sell pretty dang well is gonna end up being a Tj Maxx exclusive. XD

    Finally saw TLK over the weekend... I used to try to defend the movies as summer blockbuster fun and that people were trying to get too much out of it, but no more. It was absolute and utter trash with no redeeming qualities, even as TF. Pacing, plot, script, acting, "comedy", shoe-horning lore in what I can only imagine is an attempt to keep diehards in, tons of random TF never heard of with "unique personalities",
    Grimlock an overgrown dog puking out a car, baby dinobots, Earth is Unicron, OP completely out of character, the power of love or some such drivel turning him back from Nemesis Prime on a dime, a huge planetary mass of Cybertron next to/on Earth causes no issues,
    etc etc W. T. F. I can only thank my kids for keeping me from spending money on it in theaters.

    I can't remember, did Sky Lynx and co ever hit HTS? Though they haven't had any deluxes since Wave 3 this time around.

    With TR, HTS seems to have been working backwards. Getting larger figures first before finally getting the Deluxe/Titanmasters. Not sure if that's because they usually have no issue moving the smaller stuff in stores...

    I was waiting for Red Box...maybe I should instead just wait for the next movie altogether.

    I suppose you could kinda read the tea leaves when Marky was making it known a couple days before the theatrical release that he was done with the franchise.

    Added two more G1 bots to my collection from Hot Comics in New Hope today as I picked up a G1 Jazz complete with all his weapons, his box, instructions, decoder, and even the little order sheet for the Omnibots inside, and also a G1 Brawn.

    All I need for Season One Autobots (1984) now is Ratchet, Cliffjumper, and Windcharger.

    I would so love to see the looks on the workers faces if I did send it in to get me some Omnibots. XD


    In other news, my G1 Wheeljack and Sideswipe came while I was at college this evening. Since I already have Red Alert, I was already familiar with transforming Sideswipe. Wheeljack took me a little bit to figure out his arms pulled out.

    Still, there's something therapeutic when it comes to G1 Transformers. I'd guess maybe the simplicity?
