    well. i caved. i just got back from walmart, and i bought ultra magnus. there's still 4 left at the retail ct walmart if anyone wants him.

    they raised the cost of the deluxes to $7.97 for like, a day. they're back to $7.77 again. wtf mate.

    also picked up the robot heroes movie jazz and frenzy set. they've been sitting there forever, so i thought what the heck.

    now i think i'm going to sit back and wait for the new g1 robot heroes and cyclonus to come out. and blurr. can't forget about blurr.

    went on another little mini-run on tuesday, to target on jacks valley road.

    they had the new robot heroes, and i snagged the last ironhide/kickback set they had, as well as blaster/thrust. i will be going back for more, unless walmart happens to get them in sometime this century.

    retail ct. walmart had premium deluxe barricade, so i got him when i got my thanksgiving dinner stuff.

    i will probably be going up to reno on the 4th of december, for a doctor's appointment, and i will be checking out stuff there. if anyone sees anything awesome, please pm me or something.

    i'm keeping my fingers crossed that cyclonus comes out before the 22nd of december. then i could get one to repaint and give me something to do on my trip.

    well, shockwave and skywarp have finally arrived at the retail ct. walmart as of an hour ago. i got someone to open the box so i could get skywarp.

    i happened to find one of the mcdonalds coupons from the promotion over the summer, cos one of the mcdonalds in carson is using the old bags for happy meals. i found the coupon at work and i was like JACKPOT~

    still no sign of cyclonus. but i'm going to the walmarts and target every day till i find him.

    jacks valley target did have a buttload of the stealth lockdown sets, and the battle over mission city or whatever it's called. they also just got ultra magnus in. plus, they've been sold out of the universe deluxes for two days. but i'll check back with them on monday or so, or whenever they get a truck.

    I MUST HAVE CYCLONUS.

    I was kicking myself for not stopping at Wal-Mart in Carson Saturday morning when I was over there (seeing how Shockwave and Skywarp were found). So today I went to Wal-Mart in Spanish Springs to get some groceries but more importantly see if Shockwave and Skywarp were in stock. Well they had one of each, and I grabbed both. Skywarp has some issues, loose leg and busted hand so he'll probably be exchanged, but Shockwave kicks all sorts of ass.

    today was a wonderful day, i got out of work early because i didn't get my lunch hour in time, so i went to walmart on topsy ln.

    i got cyclonus. the last one they had. i did see cheetor and starscream, and i think there was a hound too.

    the aisle was PACKED and i practically threw myself on the package. slightly embarrassing but i am so happy i got him. one of his ears is longer than the other, but that's easily fixed.

    Great find! The fact that you found this is making me want to stop after work at the South Reno Wal-Mart to see if they have Cyclonus, Starscreem and Hound. You know what, I think I will stop there. I'm pissed that I wasted my lunch break to drive to Best Buy to buy the Dark Knight Blu-Ray when I should have just gone to Wal-Mart and killed two birds with one stone...oh well, gas is cheaper now.

    I've never been one for the Robot Heroes figures, but after work tonight I stopped at Wal-Mart and couldn't resist the pack containing Snarl and Sharkticon (I love Sharkticon). Now I have no idea if these are new or not but the box was branded with the 25th Anniversary tab in the corner. They also had a Cheetor and Tankor Robot Heroes with the 25th branding. So if these are new, cool. If not then consider this old news. I think I might go back and pick up the Perceptor pack tomorrow.

    Hunting for TF's

    Hello everyone,

    My wife and I will be staying at Imperial Palace on the Las Vegas strip for 4 days.

    Of course, I'll be taking my wife to shop at some of the outlets nearby. In addition, I'll would like to check out the local stores for some TF's too.

    Please provide me with some recommendations. Is Target the best place to shop for TF's in Las Vegas?

    Thanx.

    RedOktobre

    Wish I could help. I know someone here on this board for NV is in Vegas but myself and Tsukachi are in the Northwest part of NV, Reno and Carson City, respectively. I think there is a Toys R Us in Vegas as well and a handful of Wal-Marts so you won't be without your places to look.

    i lived in vegas for a couple months, off of durango and sahara.

    i do know the walmarts are fairly large and pretty up to date from the last time i was there, the target greatland i used to go to is a good one too. i'll dig up their locations for you. ^^

    near one walmart, i think it was off of sahara but i'm not certain, there's an office depot in the center. but there's a store that specialises in japanese toys and stuff, i vaguely remember some of the encores being there. maybe they might have henkei.

    anyway i will dig up those locations for you and pm with the cross streets and such if you like~

    today was TOTALLY AWESOME.

    i happened to go to retail ct walmart this morning for a look-see, and they have the legends animated screamer, brawn and beachcomber out.

    no hound or screamer though.

    so after work i needed to buy some haircolour, and by chance went to topsy ln walmart. i found swindle and blazing lockdown. i got swindle and went looking around for blurr cos i wanted him baaaaaad.

    lo and behold, an abandoned cart full of go-backs. BLURR WAS THERE. so i got him.

    now i am getting ready to go to san jose for nine glorious days, going to do some hunting while i'm there. must get me some comics and shizz.

    now if you'll excuse me, my cat is nomming on cyclonus AGAIN.

    Went out today not really expecting to find anything but I was proven wrong. Stopped at the Wal-Mart on Kietzke and found 2x Animated Swindle and 2x Animated Blurr. I bought one of each and absolutely love Blurr, this is probably my new favorite Animated figure.

    Yesterday (the 26th) was awesome ...
    First hit WM at South Rainbow Blvd, found the only one Swindle in many many Deluxe. Also found the only Beachcomber Legend.
    Then hit WM at S. Fort Apache road, but it was totally out of any transformers.
    then hit WM at West Charleston Blvd, and found Ani Shockwave and Skywarp at the overhead shelf; bought Shockwave.
    then hit WM at West Lake Mead Blvd, found all 3 legends, bought brawn and bb; also spotted 3 Swindles, and a blazing lockdown, but I didn't take the b.lockdown.

    btw, did anyone see this at a Target nearby?

    I checked out 3 Targets in the area and found nothing good...

    Holy Crap...

    It's been barren here in Reno for a few weeks now in regards to Transformer sightings, but today was different. The fiance and I went out to return some things from xmas and decided to stop at Toys R' Us on a whim (hell it was nearby). Toys R' Us is always the last place in Reno to get new items, let alone put them out before other stores but lo and behold they had Wave 4 Universe Deluxe. I bought all four and a few extra things...As you can see in the picture I also found Wave 1 of G.I. Joe Mighty Muggs. They had all 4 but I wasn't interested in the Duke Mugg. Today was an awesome day.

    Nothing new in the Reno area for awhile now, but I guess that's not a bad thing. My urge to collect has started to subside and I've been saving more money because of it. The only recent purchase (which was a pre-order) is the Mickey Mouse Transformer from BBTS, I look forward to getting the figure.
