    Hello everyone The New England Transformers Collectors Group is proud to present our 2nd mobile event "Steel Haven" A safe meeting spot for Collectors and Bots. This will be hand out session for this format as the time line is super short. We will just be catching up and hanging out for a bite to eat. All are welcome. 3-2-1- blast off the landing spot for this event will be the The Union Station Brewery in Providence R.I. Let's meet near the entrance into the mall from the convention Center. Display Bots are not necessary as this is not a 100% secure location. This is more or a light meet and greet. All are welcome and the end time depends on how much fun we are having. Contact me for further details. Maybe some of you could carpool in together. Well until we see each other next. Peace "until all have one" JETFIRE-XL is over and out.

    I found PotP Rodimus Unicronus at the Newport, RI Walmart. There's 1 left. I also saw Roadtrap and Battleslash, but they only had 1 of each in stock, and I bought them.
