    saw an Omega Supreme the other day at target in Grand Forks. This is odd, since I havn't even seen an Arcee, let alone Silverstreak or Hound. Newest one is Demolishor, except for OS. What's up with this crap?
    F.Y.I., no, we don't still use covered wagons in ND. And we have cable.

    Hey MMM, I was wondering when someone would actually start a ND thread. I live in Winnipeg and frequent the ND area once a month. Thanks for posting the Grand Forks update. I will be heading out to Fargo this weekend and post an update.

    cool thanks, I wanted to go to Fargo and check, but I'm just too lazy. TRU may be your best bet.

    I'll post what I can find over there (TRU, Mediaplay, Target, Wal-mart)... need me to hide anything for you, while I'm there? ;)

    Magna Stampede set , along with Whirl and other Universe sets at Target. Also got more Omega Supremes. Walmart has shrunk their TF display - less than nothing new. Stupid. I will never see a Silverstreak at this rate. :thumbdown 
    Does anybody even need this thread? Besides Rick James, of course.

    i don't know if anybone here is a halo 2 fan but i figured i'd list this anyway.

    i'm pretty sure there is going to be a van or car passing out halo 2 demos on

    tuesday the 24th all over the country!!!


    i have everything listed below how to find out where.....



    I heard about the fake site that is listed on the bottom of the halo 2 trailer in theaters and..................

    if you didn't hear about it, after the trailer, when the xbox logo comes up... on the bottom of the screen, under the logo it says www.xbox.com... but then it switches to ... www.ilovebees.com .... then back to ... www.xbox.com

    the site is supposed to be hacked, and there is a timer counting down to tuesday august 24th also there is writing that says........

    HALT - MODULE CORE HEMORRHAGE SYSTEM PERIL DISTRIBUTED REFLEX. STRONG INTRUSIVE INCLINATION. COUNTDOWN TO WIDE AWAKE AND PHYSICAL :

    if you switch the letters around it says

    INDEX THIS IRONCLAD PREDICTION : HALO TWO SINGLE PLAYER DEMO CD-ROM DISK INCURSION AT AUGUST TWENTY FOUR. EARTH WILL NEVER BE THE SAME."



    i heard about all of this, so i decided to have a go at this site.

    after about 1/2 hour of searching for clues i ended up on this page...


    www.ilovebees.com/links.html


    which has alot of GPS (global positioning system) coordinates on it.

    check for one near you.

    here is a site to get a location by using the GPS numbers...also MAKE SURE to put the - symbol in front of the second set of numbers.


    http://www.mapquest.com/maps/latlong.adp



    i knew that my area (milwaukee) was about 043 -088 ... so i looked for one around there. Sure enough i found one.

    also directly underneath each coordinate there is a time.

    the time for mine happens to be 15:35 PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)

    to check the time difference go to www.ebay.com

    their time is in PDT

    so whatever is going to happen is going to start when the timer runs out

    and at each location at that specific time....

    I went to other forums on the subject... to see if i could find out anything else, but most of them are messing with the game.

    but i did find out that there were originally different coordinates. so i looked up the original milwaukee coordinates... and it was 61st and north.

    now i looked at a few GPS sites. and both of the milwaukee locations are in the middle of the street. So I'm guessing that there will be a van or something giving out something. Hopefully a playable demo

    alot of people are thinking waaay tooo hard about this, but I figure if they are doing something they won't make it too teribly difficult to figure out, because then nobody would show up.

    I think it's a safe bet something will happen at these locations at those times. so I'm leaving work at noon on tuesday, hopefully I'll see a bunch of people there also.

    ok so i have a time and a place. I don't think there is anything else to figure, unless you want to play the ARG (alternate reality game)

    Thanks to Benzo from cybertron.ca we now know that Masterpeice Starscream has been released in Grandforks, ND. Apparently he got the last one, but who knows. Might be worth a phone call to see what they have.

    Whoa, wow, this hasn't been updated in for a while... anyway.

    I know that as of this morning, the Toys R Us in Fargo had Transformers back in stock as I personally put most of them out. Some Deluxes, Movie Legends, Voyagers, Starscream Blasters, a couple of Prime Roleplay Helmets, and the Brawl wave of Leaders.

    I saw new Movie Robot Heroes that I had not seen there before, not entirely sure how new they are because of how strange the stock tends to be.

    Transformers Animated toys are on their way...

    TRU in Fargo should have them in stock on Saturday from the info I've got.

    One of the BBs, however, is definitely mine, sorry guys.

    Edit: However, if the cases arrive and they are VISIBLY dated then they'll probably not end up on shelves... if they aren't then they'll hit the floor as soon as they're off the truck.

    Today's update is primarily Universe Deluxes. Sunstrealer, Prowl, and Tankor. The Universe Legends and a couple of new Animated products, Activators and another that I can't remember, came today too.

    Sadly it's still just Wave 2 of Animated Deluxes and Wave 1 of Animated Voyages. Lots of Ratchets and Blackarachnia's that are keeping us from putting more cases of deluxes out and Bulkhead is choking the voyagers.

    Edit: Once more, this is for the Fargo Toys R Us.

    Saw Leader Megatron and Bulkhead at Target in Fargo today, as well as Voyager Lugnut and Grimlock (I think they also had a Supreme Prime, but for some reason I can't remember precisely as I'm not terribly interested in that toy). I've seen these three at Wal-Mart as well, but that was a week or so ago and I generally avoid Wal-Mart if possible. Toys R Us yesterday was mostly Voyager Bulkheads and Wave 1/2 Deluxes. Has anyone confirmed Wave 3 Deluxes in the Fargo area?

    To answer my own question:

    Picked up Jazz at the Fargo Wal-Mart Monday night. Only one on a shelf otherwise full of Ratchets and BAs.

    Another update, sorry for the absence.

    Anywho. Today at Toys we unpacked some Supreme Primes, the Galvatron/Acid Storm wave of Universe (Both of those figures were gone when I left work), and then the Blaster/Quick Mix (wave one?) Universe Voyagers.

    Sadly, since we have a glut of Ratchet and Blackarachnia from wave 2 (we never got wave one boxes) the newer waves of Deluxes will be slow in coming. Hasbro was not smart packing those boxes the way they did. The Glut of Bulkheads (Why the hell did they think two per box in wave one was a good idea?) will eventually mess up our receiving of newer Voyagers as well. Also got a couple more boxes of Animated Leaders too.

    We also got the new package Star Wars Transformers if anyone is interested. They were added to our ginormous Clone Wars feature shop.

    And that's the update from the Fargo TRU. :D
