    No updates, but I wanted to ask- what's with the early wave Armada figures on the shelves? The shelves have been lousy with Cyclonus and Demolisher for a long time. But this week I came across the Moped team Minicon pack, and the Race team. Why are they suddenly back? Or is this just me, and the stores I've been hitting? Not that I'm complaining, since I actually did miss out on the Race team before.... Just curious.

    All the stores I been at have had the same thing. Even the food stores! Cyclonus (my first Armada, awwww ;)  and Demolisher, as well as Hot Shot and Smokescreen dominate the shelves. Now if I can just find Starscream again, the only early wave I missed out so far. ;)

    I don't know if any of ya'll are looking but all over town,especially up Northwest way, they have the wave three heroes of cybertron out. I managed to pick up all six in one night over five different wal-greens. Rodimus seems to be the easiest to find, with cyclonus being a close second. Soundwave, grimlock I have seen two of each and only one of galvatron and the packaging was all jacked. Anyway, If you care good luck in finding them.

    I'm in Tyler and I just found Silverbolt, Snarl and Reptillion at Wal-mart. We also had all the re-issues in stock a TRU, and I found the Air Military Team at another Wal-mart on the other side of town.


    If you are in the Mesquite area, they have Prowl at TRU. Also, if you hang a right on 635 from the Town East area and go down about 10 miles to the the Wal-mart on the left side of the loop, you may find a few Dinobots left if you haven't bought them yet.

    I stumbled upon a import shop in Austin today. It's called, "Morning Glory Gifts." It's on the Highland Village on the Corner or Airport and Lamar.

    Not a lot of Transformers (they had 2 Rodimus Convoy Action Figures for $21 each. I snagged one because I see them going for $25 on the web.) They do have plenty of Macross and lots of Gundam figures. I talked to the owner and he says the store is mainly about having Wall Scrolls, DVDs and other stuff. He's holding off on the toys to see if they sell. If they do, they he'll buy more. It's a neat little shop and if anyone likes anime I highly recommend them. Hopefully they get more Transformers. All in all, I would say it's a lot better than Momoko.
