    Is it cool that I work at gamestop, can preorder and get a 20% discount on Energon, Alternators, and MP Prime?:D  The 10% discount at Target is nice too. ;)

    Do you know how long the sale at the Geoffrey's/TRU lasts (or lasted)? I'd like to take advantage, but didn't see any signs for TFs on sale when I went.

    It should be buy 1 Supercon get 1 free. If its stilla round.
    However, the only Supercons the TRU I go to had is Smokescreen. If the sale's still on (anyone know?) I'm going to try to find Nemesis...then get Smokescreen since I actually don't have him.
    That's Armada Supers only. TFU don't count or anything else.

    Austin sightings

    At the Target on William Cannon and I-35, we saw some Armada puzzels (they had Perceptor and Smokescreen) and Generation One playing cards. Cheetor was also spotted at Walgreens. :)

    I went the TRU on Palmer....awesome store! I picked up Inferno while I was there. Although, I still wished that TRU on I-35 and Cameron Rd. was still opened. I live like 5 minutes from that place.

    Also, has anyone seen any Wave 4 of the Heroes of Cybertron? Or are they not out yet?

    Welcome TransMomma and Starswipe, haven't seen you two on this thread yet. ;) 

    The TRU in Lakeline had a lot of reissues when I was there. And way too many Armada Smokescreens. If you're looking for a few, that's a nice spot to hit. There's also a store at the Lakeline Mall, near Kay B Toys on the 2nd floor. On th e corner, where Shazam's, and some other game store used to be. I got the G1 playing cards there, both of em (Megatron and Prime holograms).
    I haven't seen any HoC anywhere. Least none worthwhile. Tried all around Round Rock, Palmer, Metric, all near the ACC campus I'm at, and any Walgreens I see when just driving around. None of them have anything worthwhile HOC wise.

    Thank you, Transfotaku, it's great to be here. After a year of buying Transformers toys for my 4 year old and me I finally found this cool place.
    Starswipe, we picked up 6 Heroes of Cybertron on E-bay for $20. They had Optimus Prime, Optimus Crystal, Megatron, Ultra Magnus, Thundercracker, and Paradron Medic. :thumb :

    Hey sale over at TRU is still on going, they had tons of uni's and much more, no nemesis!

    Hey Onslaught if you see N prime over in my neck of the woods let me know, I need for a Christams gift.
    ALso Castle comic also has those HOC's and target has those G1 playing cards as well as puzzles. Go the Game store had those last year picked them up for stockign stuffers, although we have never opened them up.

    Still waiting on an answer on my alternator! hope to hear something soon, or you know who will be in a bad mood....

    I need to find N Prime at TRU soon, so I can buy Smokescreen also. I don't wanna buy that pegwarmer but he looks fine as a freebie to a gorgeous Con like Nem!
    Comic Castle huh? How is the price for their HOC set? Not jacked up is it?

    Out of curiosity would a bunch of Austinites want to try to organize a get together of fans? A few people around the country try every so often it seems. Could be fun. And if we get a good group maybe we can make like Botcon South or something in the future. ;)

    Found another Nem Prime at Walmart on 242/I45 in Woodlands. You guys who want him badly need to stop worrying about TRU sales and just go during stocking time at Walmart.

    Austin Sightings

    Last night we went to the Walmart at 290 and Mopac South and saw Rhinox, Predacon, Terrosaur, AirRazor, and Optimus Prime Flashlight/Keychain. No Nemisis Prime, just same ol Optimus and Sparkplug. Who are all these new guys? What have I been missing? When will we finally see them on the Cartoon? :thumb :
