    I stopped in Target today to get some food and Transformers. Here's what I got:

    Menasor - quite awesome, but his chest will not lock shut
    Skywarp - kinda cool, but it would have been nice had he actually had a real arm with just the gun. He reminds me of those G2 planes Hasbro release towards the end of the G2 run.
    Swerve - very cool figure
    Metroplex (okay, he was yesterday, but still) - awesome in all 3 modes
    Brushguard - decent figure despite the suckiness of his arms
    Backstop - DEEDEEDEE 'nuff said'
    Alternator Tracks (blue) - have not opened yet

    Well, I opened Tracks, and he is awesome. Now I wish I had been buying the Alternators up to this point in time. :-(

    The Alternators are an addiction, good luck trying to track down the rest. There are people on the Junkion selling some so you may be able to get a nice collection of them on the cheap. Good luck.

    Actually there is a store here in Denver that sells them. I think they are called eplanettoys.

    Nice haul. I love love variety scores like that

    Most of the Alts should be fun to catch up on. May want to get Swerve asap if you can since his value is climbing fast. The rest should be pretty easy.
    Or there's always Binaltech if you prefer them in diecast. Over twice the price though

    Swerve? Which one is he?

    I'm not interested in the Binaltech versions just for the fact that they are twice as much. Diecast is cool, but the paint comes off way too easily nowadays.

    Actually, these are the Alternators I want most of all:

    Shockblast
    Ravage
    Sideswipe
    Wheeljack
    Optimus Prime
    Mirage
    Camshaft
    Grimlock
    Dead End
    Hound
    Nemesis Prime

    Sadly, I had the oppurtunity to get Nemesis Prime from a friend who was going to Comic Con, but since I was not interested in them at that point in time, I turned it down. :(  Now I'm kicking myself.
