    Cedar Cliff just got in a nice boxed G1 Megatron, G1 boxed Devastator and a alright looking G1 Boxed Jetfire. $400.00ish each.

    G1 Boxed Jetfire... *drool* How was the yellowing, if any?

    Ah, that good ol' Hasbro distribution. The fact that we're finding wave 3 Voyagers for PotP when people hardly ever saw wave 2.

    Spotted the PotP Inferno at Coon Rapids Wal-Mart today. Otherwise nothing else as usual to report Transformers wise.

    Nabbed the only Inferno at Bloomington Wal-Mart. Anyone irritated the feet parts are not as advertised

    Does his enigma really not plug in anywhere? That just seems weird.

    Not TF related, but if anyone is into Storm Collectibles Street Fighter V figures, TRU Northtown put out about 35 of each TRU exclusive M Bison and Ken. 50% off.

    Sorry, I can't quite remember. I was a little overwhelmed by the 3 in a row. I was looking at the box condition more then the bots. Owner is usually willing to negotiate (at least with me) and I'm seriously considering the Megatron.
    If anyone goes and takes a look what would you think of a $375.00 to $400.00 offer? Assuming the bot itself is in good shape. Or do me a favor and buy it yourself so I can quit thinking about it:D

    Walmarts are getting W3 while Target is getting W2 right now it seems.

    Walmart already got W2 back in February so things are staggered but still moving ahead.

    Not from what I can tell. I just pop it into the ladder on his back. Stays pretty good.

    Not really, the packaging error had mostly been known about since the Australian Toyfair he was previewed at.

    Lots of Infernos at Andover Wal-Mart. Probably too many.

    I don't get the appeal of that figure...pretty forced repaint, IMO.

    Guard City? But you are right, you won't care for it.

    Never heard of it...but cool that it at least has a purpose. Was it a different character, though? Google's saying it's something called Fire Chief in English. Too generic so the Bro opt to call him Inferno instead for giggles?

    Eh, I'm turning him into Hosehead with a Shapeways adapter. I also bet Reprolabels will make a sticker set for the conversion too.

    Wave one deluxe restock at Midway Target. Omw to hit White Bear Ave Target and then both Woodbury Targets.

    Edit #1: wave 1 leaders at old Target in Woodbury.
    Edit #2: New Woodbury Target same as old, three Infernos at Woodbury Wal-Mart.
    Edit #3: decided to hit Hudson Target and Wal-Mart. Target had wave 1 leaders.

    And on that note I'm officially done searching for Transformers at brick and mortar stores. PotP has been exceptionally frustrating and Tfsource.com can have my pre-order money.

    I don't think it was an error. I think it was a last second change like Elita-1's feet/armor color or how people stripped the paint off Abominus's head and found it was G1 cartoon colors.

    Or how Inferno's art is clearly Onslaught with the Hot Spot ladder attached. PotP obviously went through some dramatic last second changes.

    Like I would not be shocked if originally Demolishor was going to be in this wave and then they needed a way to get G2 Defensor out to stores.

    I was referring to the image on the back of the box being the error and not the feet themselves. Inferno was part of this wave since the beginning going back to the line leak.

    Got a spare Inferno if anyone is interested. Otherwise I'll take him back sometime this week.

    Also, I'm a huge fan of these combiners...but I now own like four versions of the fire truck (Hot Spot, Pyra Magna, Megaempress, and Inferno) but they never reused the Onslaught mold outside of the collectors club Bludgeon.

    Really wish they would have skipped Inferno in favor of that planned Demolishor...

    The running theory is Hasbro cancelled the G2 Defensor boxed set and have slowly started releasing the repaints with new heads. (Ratchet, Wreck-Gar, Inferno...)
