    290 and mopac? Don't think I've been to that one often, doesn't ring a bell but that's sweet! Now if only they'd hit the 183 and Peyton Gin one.....
    I may make a small trek out there!

    Yeah I saw that but saw it was titled for searching for a specific toy and thought maybe we should start a general austin sighting thread for us all co compare notes in, so this is my attempt. anyway, someone please post if you see the dinos. later.

    Hey, has anyone else been to Target lately? I was on my way to Georgetown and stopped at some stores on the way.
    So, the Target off 183, near 620 had a sale- $4.99 on Gobots. Price is absurdly low, but they didn't have any of the few Gobots I'm thinking of buying. Could somebody see if that sale is valid anywhere else? That Target had a couple of the G1 playing card sets as well, not many, on an endcap among Spiderman cards. The Transformers cards actually come up on the scanners as "Spiderman playing cards". Armada figure selection was pretty common.
    And, one last thing, skip the 183 and 620 Walmart. Had nothing except minicons, and only the street speed and boating team or whatever at that.
    Hope this helps.

    Okay, what we've all been waiting for lately. Stopped by the ghetto Target at Research and Ohlen (off 183 if you've not familiar with the area), saw the Dreadwind and Smokejumper pack. Finally! Counted seven units on the shelves of the endcap. Lots of Galvatron bonus packs too. Yay!

    Yippy yippy! I'm moving houses and happened to need boxes... so I head over to the norwood (i-35 & 183) walmart at around 12:00 am or so and what have we here????

    A case of wave 5 supercons!! YESSS!

    Well I'm here to announce, Rhinox and terrorsaur have hit Austin! WOOT!

    And they are short packed btw.... only one per case of each!

    There were two cases there, and I got one set sooo....

    And I'm still needing the Grimlock, swoop, and the sludge set for the dinobots.....

    If anyone needs Heroes of Cybertron Megatron, they had a lot at the Walgreens on 620 in Round Rock. 620 and Wyoming Springs.
    If anyone needs Dreadwind/Smokejumper, there's still a good amount on the Target at I-35 and 1325 (Louis Henna) again in Round Rock. They also have a -ton- of Galvatrons. And Supercon Primes. ANd that's about it there.

    The KB Toys at Lakeline no longer has any Destructicons. Unless they got some more in the back after I got the last set of two.

    Gees I need to get out of the house more often, I haven't seen anything new lately. However I did go to the valley this past weekend to help my mom pack up her classroom and what not. Went to the Wal-mart in McAllen on North 23rd and saw tons of DinoBots and a huge endcap of Armada I was really surprized but all those little rich mexican kids were snagging them up and I wondered if they even knew what they were buying?? Or was it just because there were so many and they felt they needed to buy them!!!??? Well the other Wal-Mart in Edinburg didn't have anything!! I will take a toy run later tonight....
