    Snagged TLK deluxe Hot Rod off the Wal-Mart website just now. They are in stock if you are looking! $19.99.

    People have been saying Thunderwing if you have the Seige set.

    People love that Thunderwing for it.

    Thanks man! Saved me a trip to WalMart, and that is always a win.

    I'd still keep Walmart in the rotation since they've beat everyone else at retail to Slugslinger and Overlord.

    So, I got Sqweeks with my Hascon exclusives order, and I gotta say, he's pretty awesome. Versatile as a playset, fun and intuitive transformations without being overly simple... If you see him in the wild sometime in 2021 with the way distro is going, pick him up! Otherwise, he might still be on HTS.
    Man, Wave 1 Deluxes for TLK were trash, but everything else out of that line (that isn't just some grey repaint) has been really good. Like, Scorn is one of my favorite figures in a WHILE. Too bad they can't seem to get past the horde of Slashes and Grimlocks clogging the shelves.

    Given recent developments in the toyline, I've been desperately searching for pics from my childhood of me and the Seacons.

    Managed to snag myself a Mini Super Nintendo from the local Target this morning. Sadly due to working weekends, it will have to wait to be really played, but lots of free time will be burned coming up here real soon.

    I snagged one on preorder from Best Buy and UPS ended up delivering it a day before the release date. XD SUPER cool little system (especially since it has 4 of my favorite RPGs of all time(, but the cables are sooo shooort. I got a longer HDMI cable, and I have a Wii pro controller (get one. You can use the home button on that instead of hitting the reset button on the console to go back to the menu). Toys R Us has some 6ft controller extensions, too.

    Dang, wish I had seen that before I got Dragonstorm 2 days ago. I don't have prime since I don't use amazon much, so I can't justify paying nearly $30 for the figure after shipping. ><

    That said, and acknowledging the upcoming irony I'm feeling, I picked up Cyber Battalion Prime and Prowl from Bville Walgreens (Had I known about slugslinger, I woulda done that instead!). They still have one bumblebee. They're actually pretty cool, and my little nephews and nieces will enjoy playing with them. I'll probably snag Megatron, Jetfire, and Starscream (there's a Starscream, right?) if I see them, but that'll be about it. Price is a little too high.

    Also, Bville TRU has the Samus/Metroid Amiibo 2pack if people are on the lookout for it.

    I got the last Twin Twist from downtown Target. No Windblade or Misfire, but there was a Wolfwire.

    Totally forgot to list my other sightings:
    Bville Target: For real you guys it's like just Slash and Grimlock repaints. Apparently, collectors don't like paying extra for boring repaints of okay figures they already bought 3 years ago. I know, I'm shocked, too.
    Is anyone still looking for Shuffler? They had some shufflers.

    Bville TRU: MPM Prime (who is good) and Infernicus (who is not great but more stable than the Abominus he comes from)? Otherwise nothing.

    Bville Barnes and Noble: Holy crap they got a ton of new gundam models if you guys are into that. It's great.

    Also, I kinda really dig these cyber battalion guys. They will be good desk toys. I wish they were cheaper.
