    If you don't mind, would you both kindly do me a big favor, and also include what Premium Movie figures and Movie Scene Figures are available at which Targets?

    I know they are on sale, and I want to catch up on what I need before they are all gone.

    I originally skipped on anyone who wasn't becoming a Premium or movie-scene figure, so I could just have the Premium and movie-scene versions of them. I only own deluxe 70's BumbleBee, Bonecrusher, leader Brawl.

    I already have Premium Barricade and Ironhide.

    For the 4 Movie-Scene packs, I have none and need all 4 of them.

    For Premiums, I need BumbleBee, Jazz, Voyager Blackout, Target-Exclusive Deep-Space Starscream, and Leader Megatron.

    I am passing on Hasbro's Premium Leader Optimus Prime for the Takara one, and I will pick up the BestBuy exclusive Premium Voyager Ratchet eventually.
    I do not want the BestBuy Premium Voyager Icy Megatron.

    ALSO, does anyone know where I can find an original-release movie Ironhide locally? My little cousin just needs him to have all the movie guys.

    He's been a budding Transformers fan since Armada, but the shows from Armada to Cybertron seemed very boring to him (and I have to agree with him on that). He'd have me watch the shows with him, to help him understand them and to find episode that caught his attention, but we'd always agree that the shows were not very entertaining, and watched something else. Since that time, he's only had an Armada Perceptor and an Energon Cruellock.

    However, since we took him to the movie on opening day, he has peaked his interest in Transformers and is very curious about all the past toy lines, shows, and stories.

    During the movie-toy craze, I have helped him find deluxe 70's BumbleBee, Concept Camaro BumbleBee, Jazz, Barricade, Skorponok, Brawl, Bonecrusher, FAB Frenzy, Voyager Ratchet, Starscream, Icy Megatron, Blackout, Leader Optimus Prime, and Premium Leader Megatron, but never a Voyager Ironhide.

    He still wants an Ironhide, but now he also LOVES Animated (and so do I). I helped him get a Prowl (his favorite Animated good guy), and now he wants a Lockdown (his favorite Animated bad guy).

    You help will be greatly appreciated! And it will also be a great help to me!

    Thanks!

    i saw a premium blackout behind the tfa voyager @ the seekonk target. and the final battle scene they have there is the one with bb & the tow truck. they had two or three of those.

    still no tfa dlxs @ seekonk.

    Thanks!

    One more thing, wasn't there a store you recently visited where you saw a bunch of Premium BumbleBees?

    I only ask because of the very few I've come across, they all looked absolutely horrible.

    Thanks!

    Anyone know where I can still find the Black/Red repaint of Legends Class Optimus Prime? Walgreens, Rite Aid, etc? Anywhere?

    I just need him to complete my LOC collection.

    I know some lesser known places that sell TF's still have some Cybertron legends class figures floating around.

    If anyone is heading up North Attleboro way, I think I remember seeing 1 LOC repaint Prime at the KB Toys in Wrentham Village.

    I remember they were in the back of the action figure aisle, right near the Sonic toys, hooked onto the holes of the red metal display pillar.

    There were 5. 1 Leo Prime, 2 Cybertron Optimus Primes repacked in Classics LOC packaging, 1 Cybertron Hot Shot packed in Classics LOC packaging just like Prime, and 1 Cybertron Black/Red Repaint Optimus Prime in LOC Cybertron packaging.

    TRU warwick, no more universe dlx :( , but they did have tons of the universe legends, and the new robot heros universe ones too. rattrap is soooo cute!

    on the tfa front, they seem to already be out of the leaders too. they did finally have lots of lugnuts & grimlocks though! they also seem to have a decent assortment of the deluxe ones from wave 1 & 2.

    no wave three... i mean, were those first few a fluke? come on hasbro!!! send out more, pleeeeaaaase!!! :D

    Does Newbury comics still carry any Gashapon (Capsule) or Japanese Trading figure toys? I always used to go there and buy the little Godzilla, Mario, Gundam, and HellBoy ones.

    My mini HellBoy is awesome BTW.

    haven't noticed...i will look next time.



    also, i know, north attleboro is actually mass, but hey...

    the walmart in north attleboro has TFA leader megs & bulky, they also have the tfa activators.

    TRU has TFA wave 1 & 2 dlx & voy as well as activators, & those bumper things. no universe dlxs, but they they do have all the new robot heros.

    target has jack sh*t. a handful of wave 1 & 2 dlx & voyagers, but like maybe 10 all together... do they ever restock there??

    and the toy vault has a few new alternators, as well as i spied a henkei astrotrain. they also seem to have gotten in a bunch of gundams...


    thats it for now! i see the wave 3 is hitting CT & NH, so it should be here soon!! *fingers crossed*

    *attention caught*

    Action figures or Model Kits? Bandai Japan or Bandai America?

    It's been a mighty while since I bought some Gundams.
