    Anyone in need of a deluxe combiner wars groove? I ordered one from scramble core and then found one on Amazon. They wouldn't let me cancel the order. It will be delivered this coming week.

    Found Ravage, Rumble & Laserbeak at TRU New Hartford. 2X of Ravage & Laserbeak remain with 1 Rumble after I grabbed my set.

    Yeah, that was pretty bad. Especially considering when they were shoved into those lower shelves, TRU didn't have any RID warriors at a time when we're expecting a TRU exclusive wave. But they moved them back to pegs and restocked. I hope your store does soon!

    One Chromedome and three High Brows at the Walgreens on Central, but no Brainstorm. There were boxes on carts but I didn't see anything from Hasbro (and the few figures I did see could have been just unloaded).

    So this whole completing wave 2 in record time has left a void. I miss the hunt and no sign of brainstorm so i haven't been out looking! I need to get a second hobby.

    Still awaiting Brainstorm. I'm in need of Astrotrain, maybe Alpha Trion, but definitely passing on Soundwave & my Wave 2 collection will be complete.

    I've mostly switched to getting my stuff online now. It's just easier and I don't have to worry about scrambling all over town. Still there was a certain thrill going from store to store but arriving only to find nothing new can be disheartening.

    Alpha trion is pretty cool. I was lucky enough to grab him from Amazon for retail.

    I'm the same way. I went to a local TRU last week, they had a display reset. Transformers were moved 2 aisles further than usual, and still had wave 1 stuff, but I did see 2 Wheelies and Blaster's sidekicks Rewind and Stripes. Online shopping makes everything easier.

    Any sightings of leader class figures in the NYC area? If not, I'll go the online route.

    which TRU that they moved Transformers figures 2 aisles back? I went to the one in 48st. TRU to get Fortress Maximus but they don't have him so I went to Metropolitan Ave to get him there.

    Exactly the one, 48th Street and Northern Blvd. in Long Island City. Fort Max was spotted a couple of weeks ago, I saw 2 and passed.
