    I was in Borders this past week and it seems like the company that liquidating the stock at the few remaining Borders stores has added other merchandise other than books to the stores. The Borders in my town had RTS Legends class figures,RTS deluxe class, and the hard to find Powercore Combiners 5 packs. The RTS Legends were $6.99, but were 40% off so they came out to be $4.19. The RTS deluxe class were$16.99 and take an additional 40% off. The Powercore Combiner 5 packs were a whopping $34.99 and take 40% off so they still came to $21.00, which is twice the asking price in other stores. But if you wait a few weeks the price will continue to drop. I am hoping since they are still putting new invintory out daily that Borders will get some of the Holy Grail for Transformers collectors, RTS Windcharger. So if you still have a Borders in your area check them out.

    Thanks for the heads up. I have a Borders that's literally walking distance from me. I'll check it out when I get off work.

    I've also noticed Walgreens selling RTS stuff. Saw a peg full of RTS Legends there the other day.

    I just hit one of my area's last Borders today and picked up Steamhammer and Gold Bumblebee. Somebody posted that they had found Grimstone there a day or two before. Here's hoping they keep shipping. Sidebar: Waldenbooks. Are they or are they not also owned by Borders and therefore also going out of business? Has anyone seen any TFs at Waldenbooks?

    Yeah it's awsome, I'd pretty much given up on finding the Dinobots and constructicons, then PAW!!! There were just sitting there , got both for $38. The best part is that I like them more than I thought I would. Win win in my opinion.
