    Yeah, Shazam's. I found it when I got my Destructicons, but I didn't tell anyone cuz I wanted to grab some of the Micron Legends. ;) 
    I didn't though. I wish I knew of it before so I coulda picked up ML Megatron instead of Armada Megatron. Not that I'm not happy w/Arm Megs, but for $5 more I coulda had a neat sword and little goodies that come with Takara's issues.
    Hope they do better than the last thing that they had there. That was a game store, but they never paid their bills, employees, rent or anything and got in quite a lot of trouble.

    Yeah and guess what they aren't going to carry them anymore, because the rude assh**e said that they don't move quick enough, I said that's bullsh*t I will come buy them all, SO I got Prime, Gold Destruction team, Cyclonus, and Megs. I wanted to but that other Prime but I was trying to save up for it. Well when I went they had nothing. I was like who could of bought em??? OH well it was fun while it lasted. Ordered Rachet and Starsceam from HLJ last night. I guess that is the only way to get em now. I hate Austin..No import stores.. I use to live in Houston..Planet Anime, may have to take a trip over there.

    There used to be an import store at least. It's called Momoko's. IIRC, it's on 24th street, near UT. It expanded to include a cafe, so they should still have some things.
    They dn't have a lot, and it's a tad expensive (about the same as BBTS or just a bit more maybe) but its kind of neat.
    And Houston's only a 3 hour drive or so. I never been there before, so if you want a trip, I can drive on over and you can be a guide for us, ConCon. ;)

    I am actually going to Houston the First week of Aug. mainly to go see Metallica, but also a great excuse to go to Planet Anime. But lets see if I can get a trip together, maybe sometime soon.. Liek the first weekedn in June after payday, there is no money right now, just spent a whole lot and paid bills.
    I will see, where abouts are you in Austin, we might be neighbors you never know.

    Scored the Armada Dinobots today, after having to wait till now to get the spare cash to buy them. For anyone else who wants them, Walmart around I35 and Stassney Ln. has the Grimlock and Swoop set, along with the other two. Around 6 PM today, there were more than one of each set.

    COmic Castle has some Heroes of Cybertron over by Lakeline Mall, also I got my Import Ratchet and Starscrem today and they are so Kick Booty... They are way cooler that the American ones IMO. Don't want to start anything now. So yeah he also has a Japanese re-issue of God Genri I think that is who it was, he also has some RID figures that were left over. But they had quite a few HOC. Go see for your self, it's off of 620w in the shopping center where the Dairy Queen is.

    Anything NEW in TEXAS???

    WOW I can not believe that I have not been able to find anything new around here where I live?!!
    Went to my good Ol' Wal-mart here in Austin 183 & 620 but they have so much of the first couple of waves but I mean alot.... they have a section down the action figure isile and an end cap at the end of the board games area. I hope they are not holding stuff back cuz the old stuff isn't selling. Please Post any new sightings! I know some one found the PLP in Geroretown and in Edinburg, that's a bit far for me.

    just went to the norwood (the 183 & I35) Walmart and they had the PL Prime there.... he was hidden on the upper racks.

    Apparently he's short packed along with the normal primes....
    I decided to pass on him for now, thus leaving about 3 confirmed, and I don't know how many more above! COol box and art, like the colors after all, and the box seems more solid than the original one.....

    They were jam packed with armada stuff there.... I mean, DAMN! I wonder if the new minicons had come in and sold out...?

    THe 620 Walmart is pretty barren and weak right now..... *sigh*
