Nice. I have to limit myself to once a week, twice if ot's a good pay week.
1 Krok at the Walgreens on Lindbergh between Manchester and 44.
2 Megatron/1 Optimus at the Kirkwood Walmart.
I'm downtown, central st. Louis city but I didn't even know that they where doing a Titan Master Grotusque, do you mean Repugnus? I've only ever seen him once at Walmart on brentwood.
Southern STL/ Jefferson county
Whoops, yeah that's what I meant. Thanks.
Target in Jeff City put out a case of deluxes. Unfortunately it was wave 3.
Brand new Wal-Mart in Lee's Summit/Greenwood at 291 South and 150 Hwy:
2 x Leader Soundwave
2 x Voyager Prime
2 x Voyager Megatron
A slew of waves 1-3 deluxe
A slew of Ptero, Overboard(?) Fangry Titan Masters.
I was hoping for wave 4 deluxes, but as expected, only through wave 3.
Wave 3 deluxe are starting to show up on this side at Target and Walgreens. I fear wave 4 might end up the missing wave due to movie toys.
What a Krok! Now I'm Quaking in my boots at the thought of missing the others.
Movie toys are still a ways off. Not far off, but enough we'll see wave 4. More worried about wave 5 and 6 though. The timing on those is that they'll hit right before movie toys, or during.
I highly highly doubt we will see much of wave 4 TR. There is a ton of precedent that says stores won't order it and will only get movie toys. If they were going to order them, they would have, see my post above about a BRAND NEW Walmart with waves 1-3. It opened like on Monday and has nothing new. We may be utterly screwed on wave 4.
Topspin is my biggest want from wave4. That is one I might jump on if I see it online. Other than the Ginrai boxset coming up, I am winding down on TF figures.
I'm perceptoring your top spinning and your milk spilling out of your kup. Don't cry over the spilled milk.
That new walmart, the next stock would be wave 4. When they're opening a store, they start to stockpile a few cases to prep for opening. So the next refill shipment that one would get is all pure new. It's the same for Target and Toys R Us too. New stores get the newest stuff, but they do start off with a mix from stockpiling to prep the opening. Otherwise they wouldn't have anything to stock with, and they need the new store to look robust and full.
We're likely to see wave 4 in TRU, Walmarts, and target likely next week or the week after, and Walgreens many are already starting to show up. The slow down in ordering for prep room for movie toys won't happen until April. And that's assuming they switch product instead of higher stocking both. Since TR is selling so well, they may heavy stock both at major chains. There's precedent for that too. So it's a coin toss really. Could go either way.
That's too bad. How come?
Not a whole lot that is interesting me and my free time needs to be spent writing papers and not looking for toys. I might get some 3rd Party stuff but I have a limited budget this year and I want to do some car stuff too.
New payday, time to buy a new transformer. but need some help if any of you are in the Kansas City area
As for what I need, I can easily get deluxe Scourge or Voyager Galvatron at my local Wal-mart...so no real rush there
raytown Wal-Mart has the new voyager Megaron and optimus Prime...but I'll probably just wait for the new Blitzwing/Octane when they come out
Low priority is finding Sentinel prime and Alpha Trion...i already have Astrotrain, and Alpha looks like a mess
Medium Priority is leader Blaster, Powermaster optimus Prime, deluxe Hot Rod and and deluxe Twinferno....the deluxes don't really "sing" to me, and really just want the leasters for my Fort Max set
High Priority are for Kup, Triggerhappy and Wolfwire (don't think perceptor Sky Shadow or broadside are in the states yet,other wise they would be,all high priority)
Any help finding there would p=be appreciated. particuarly at stores like Target or Wal-MArt...if they can be found at say, Yoys R Us, or walgreens....fine, butwould prefer tonot pay the higher price unless you know if/how they price match
either way, hope you all have a great weekend!
