    Carnegie Walmart: wave 1 Prime Masters, wave 1 POTP deluxes (Slag, Swoop, Dreadwind) and one Elita-1. I don't see any Studio Series items at all.

    Drove out here after work. Was excited to see Elita-1. Then I realized it was an open figure. So still looking for that and Hunn Garr. I did however get some of the Deadpool marvel legends Wave so I can take back the more expensive ones I bought at game stop. So that’s a little bit of a win that’ll save me about $15.

    Chambersburg Ollie's has a load of the Triggerhappy wave. Like, lots of them.

    Picked up a ML Cable from Walmart last night. Today, all that remains is a Deadpool.

    South Atherton State College Ollie's has lots of Triggerhappy TR wave, for those on the hunt.

    One POTP Starscream at Benner Walmart, and jack shit else.

    Went to Steel City Con yesterday. Decent Transformers presence this time. Only one guy had anything from PotP, and he was charging crazy prices, like $30 each for Battleslash and Roadtrap. -_- Other tables were much more reasonable.

    Big wins: a sealed in box Machine Wars Starscream, and Gary Busey autographed my copy of Point Break.

    Front page heads-up:
    An ollie's in florida apparently had TR trypticon in stock.
    Don't know if they're coming to PA&NJ, but here's hoping.

    Chambersburg Target is doing a reset. Studio Series, Deadpool wave of ML and the new Jurassic Park stuff.
    Ollie's doesn't have Trypticon and doesn't know if they're getting them.

    I think it’s a hoax. No way a $150 figure would be reduced to $12.99 when that figures was barely even found in stores

    re. Trypticon- Yeah, the price is very doubtful and seems more like shenanigans than an actual pricing set.
    Fort Max was $40, which seems a LOT more likely here if it was even truly found in store.

    they have it 3 times a year, so July or august for the next one. I havent been in a while because since they got Jason David Frank (Tommy from MMPR) last year, the con hasnt interested me and i've heard mixed things about the people who run it (I'm also just not a fan of their overzealous marketing). Plus, at this point, it's not worth it for me unless there's a celebrity there i really want to see (have too many autographs just stored in my closet now). it's a fine convention, but it's not my jam anymore.

    I picked up voyager prime at the target in montgomeryville. They still have the deluxes and leaders.

    I’m actually pretty impressed with voyager prime. If it was $20 it would be perfect.

    I like it more than I expected. I’m glad I picked it up (thanks to the suggestions here).

    I can’t help but think how great this figure would look with a premium Takara paint job.

    Also, I really really like leader grimlock. And even though the rex mode isn’t the best it’s still leaps and bounds better than the previous versions.

    My only complaint with it are the rear skirt pieces in rex mode don’t stay up, they keep dropping down.

    Mine has the same problem. I might see if I can buy some Future to put on it. I know I have quite a few other figures that could use some anyway.

    Yeah, I was thinking about doing that as well. I might just get one of those small clear bands.

    I'm just shocked that the Grimlock I have doesn't have the droopy armor in dino mode. It actually sits pretty tight.
    I just know I won't be getting Blackout. I was really looking forward to that one, but after seeing one in person, it's a firm NO. Add the miniscule size of the figure (seriously, it's anlarge Voyager) to the growing list of issues in the review thread and I count it as money saved. Bummer, too. I always liked his design.
    Oh well, after Grimlock I got Optimus and Starscream, and they're both decent enough. Now for Megatron and Lockdown and I will be done with the SS line until they announce a Shockwave. Then all bets are off.

    Shippensburg Walmart has nothing of interest. Even the clearance Voyagers are still $25.

    I'm still stoked for Blackout (I need him to come back in stock first). Small or not, he still looks like a great figure and is miles more accurate than the dopey voyager from 2007.

    Studio Series at Target? That's good to hear. Has there been any kind of announcement as to where exactly SS is supposed to show up? Seems kind of random.

    I actually liked the old Voyager, especially the premium one. Glad I never sold it.

    It's a mass release line, so it should be everywhere.
    Sould be.
