    Someone was looking for Sharkticon Megatron a while back. I saw one at the New Hope Hot Comics about a week ago.

    It was me, sorta. Cause he reminds me of a Seacon.

    Do you remember the asking price?

    If anyone was on the fence, the Diecast Legendary Voltron multipack at Target is $42 this week. Lowest I've ever seen it.

    I'd be all over that if it was OG Voltron, but I already have the big Legendary Defender, so I dunno if I need a big one. Saving up for Big Powered :D 

    How do the die-cast ones stack up to the big ones anyway?

    Lion mods are really nice. Combined he looks off to me and I think a lot of people have that opinion.

    $25- $30. Something like that. Looked unopened but I didn't inspect it. The only reason I noticed was because I remembered It being mentioned on the boards.

    It was on a low shelf (thigh high) behind another boxed figure. Across from all the Marvel Legends on pegs. It was kind of hidden.

    Was at the Northtown TRU today looking at the Mega Bloks TMNT Technodrome set, which I've been tempted by numerous times, but not at $150, when one of the managers came over asking if I needed help. I simply mentioned how I was thinking of buying the set and she mentioned how the Minnetonka TRU should be liquidating their stock soon and maybe check to see if they drop the price on their sets soon.

    If anyone that goes to the Minnetonka TRU happens to get there during their liquidation and sees the Mega Bloks Technodrome set for like at $100 or less, let me know. I'll help out people if they're looking for stuff that is TRU exclusive through the Northtown store (and Maple Grove maybe) as thanks.

    The only thing I'd be even midly interested in is if any Legacy Titanus drop below $100. Though they're all the ugly black and gold version...

    Also, TFSource has Roadtrap and Battleslash for $9.99 preorder which seems downright charitable given the only way to get Moonracer and Blackwing is by preordering the whole Deluxe Wave for $18 each.

    That's the Takara version. Which is identical if I recall.

    Identical, but I imagine a lot of people are gonna argue it's superior. XD

    It's gonna be a hell of a thing when Hasbro's Moonracer and Novastar end up being more expensive than Takara's.

    One Optimus left with poorly placed robot mode stickers and two Rodimus's at DT Target after I grabbed the good stickered Optimus.

    Edit- Well F**k, I should have paid more attention, I got home and found that it had been a repacked/return missing the instructions and card.

    How is that even remotely related to karma?

    I was insinuating that you had built up a bit of bad karma by taking the properly-stickered Prime and leaving the improperly-stickered Prime for someone else...only to find that you wound up with the lesser of the two after returning home. I guess it's sort of a blend of karma and irony, come to think of it. I was joking...I'm sure you actually deserve the best Prime ever, bro! I hope you can get it returned.

    Dang, they had nice Deluxes at Andover this morning but no sale sign! Well, if anyone wants to stop by, I saw the whole first wave there (it looked like a tornado went through the toy isle, though).
