Got the Walgreen clones finally.
I had to break out like a ten year old rewards card registration before they would match their own website on them... the website wanted a stupid shipping fee.
Hey Hasbro could you NOT give fucking Wal greens exclusives anymore ever?
Still never got Brainstorm because they literally never stocked one that I saw in the fifty stores they have in our town, I assume he was one per case with the rest of a deluxe wave that was destined to ROT on their shelves at what... 22 bucks tax induced for a deluxe? That's IF they ever even sent him at all...when he finally got down to a reasonable deluxe clearance price on their website it was more than offset ... again... by shipping which to go back to the start of this mini rant I guess I could have had the price match their OWN DAMN WEBSITE .. They actually tried to get out of this with the clones, unreal... like here I go... when did hourly workers start trying so damn hard to rip off people in their own damn communities for the corporate office who lets face it isn't gonna get made or broke on the ten bucks difference on some toys? I notice it a lot more lately and honestly from certain types of local people who you would think would lean more the other way if anyone can read between those lines...so yeah this person had every excuse to just give it to me for the price on the website and had to be practically debated and negotiated into doing it..whew... BUT like I said in the case of Brainstorm he was never in any of the damn stores in person to even do that with ANY WAY so it was 22 dollar deluxe or 14.99 ( did he ever clear out less than that?) with 7 or 8 shipping ,,, its not like I couldn't swing it if I wanted to I just have a bad ...its the principle... stubbornness when I feel like I am being taken advantage of and Wal greens finds some way of doing it or tries to every time... those damn clones rang up for you guessed it 22 bucks initially yesterday and I had to sit there and argue like I needed it to get a regular person to give it to me for what the website had it ughhghgghghghhghgghhg
Hurray, the Chase that I bought just over a week ago on eBay arrived! Nought but a few light scratches on him, good decals, nice and clean. Now if the Rollbar that I bought off eBay the beginning of January would ever show up I'll finally have a complete set of G1 Throttlebots.

i broke down and ordered a full set of the MMC Nova Prime, both the cab and the trailer. My wallet is hating my two friends who turned me onto IDW Transformers comics
Just got picked these guys at mejier.
Badcube evil bug corps.
RID 2001 spychanger Side Swipe
TR Clones Walgreens exclusive 2-pack Wingspan and Cloudraker - on sale for $13.99, too!
Got these Seaspray was $7, and the masters were out of Target's system they told me they could do $1.48 a piece.
The Slugslinger wasn't there before tonightI was hoping he was clearanced at $10 but I got him anyways.
I'll raise the stakes with two LG 60 Overlords..
Double the Terror!
I got him today too. Gave him MMC Tyrantron’s sword.
Yeah boiiiii! I've gotten all of wave 1 except for Shrapnel (Or is it skrapnel?). I'm all ready for wave 2 now, and studio Series as well. FYI, that's a gray bathrobe for me, and the Star Wars PJs are for my mom.
Target apparently is having 10% off TFs.
I finally got a Dreadwind, not because I didn't want him before, but my local Walgreen's had him (and Slug) on sale for 12.99- less than retail! He's definitely going to meet with my lone CW Skydive and Blast Off (and hopefully Inferno) for my 'oddball' combiner. Blackwing is next. I additionally got the Snoke with Throne Set and a McFarlene Handsome Jack (I goddamn love Borderlands, and didn't know it existed so that's great) at Gamestop, so I'm content. Probably pitiful but supremely satisfying haul.
I stuck with the Hasbro in case I ended up double dipping. There's a good chance I'll splurge on LG Greatshot though.
Greatshot is totally worth splurging two for. I know I did..
Picked up POTP Slag and Skrapnel. While I do still have FoC Grimlock, I guess now I'm obligated to finish the team since they're one of the biggest groups of all of G1, probably will move FoC Grimlock to the Aligned shelf after all.
More important is Skrapnel, though, to pair with TR Kickback. All I need is Bombshell/Hardshell and I'll finally have the trio complete.
Sooooooo much fun to be had...
So jealous of your Chaos Paladin and TR Fastlane...
Why not six??? Go crazy.
