    If you're talking about the Galvatron w/CD, I sold that to a nice elderly couple last night, for their grandson. They also got him some Tiny Tins, Hot Shot, Red Alert, and Smokescreen. Made me feel good to help some kid have a great birthday.

    Anyway, the Galvy w/cd is not at TRU now. You can still come by and marvel at our new layout though. I'll be in at 11AM.

    We do have plenty of BTR Smokescreen left if you want one :upchuck

    just wave 1 from what I saw, but they've expanded their shelf/peg space from the reset a few weeks back, so I'm sure they'll be popping up soon!

    Roanoke TRU - Wave 1 Universe, and thin end cap faced up with Armada items (Hot Shot, Blurr, etc), Galvatrons, and minicons. Nothing terribly exciting. Only 1 minicon set with Unicron Battles packaging (whichever one it is that has Prowl, Firebot & the Osprey looking helicopter). And they had the Dark Saber minicon set, too. Also had tiny tins, G1 Red Alert, Thundercracker, and 2 other car reissues (cant remember for the life of me which ones). Had both versions of Super Prime, and ZERO Unicrons. Largely disappointing, which is more often than not the case there.

    Roanoke KB Toys - ouch. Talk about a sad situation. Not even in an aisle anymore. Relegated to about a 4 foot section on a wing with Super Primes on the floor (apparently to guard against any Decepticons sneaking up on the sad display). Needless to say, nothing spectacular. Had some of the old clear color spychangers down to $3.99 or $2.99 - cant remember which, but they're STILL overpriced....and unimpressive to boot!

    so i decided this early morning before my mom and my sisters come by the apt to call my local Sams Club to see if the new OP and Magnus have arrived. Well the first place I called didnt know what I was talking about before I even gave them a description of the items I was looking for......now i wonder if people can read minds through a telephone ....ok so I pretty much embarrased the guy over the phone and hung up on him before he started talking. Ok on to Club number 2..(there are only 2 in my area) I call and the lady was nice and asked what i was looking for, but I could tell she didnt because she tried to get me to hang up.. not, so I give her a detailed description and she puts me on hold for the first time...comes back and says that we dont have it, and I tell her well can you check the cpus and she says something that she doesent have it in the cpus....im like people its a SAMS CLUB EXCLUSIVE...how do you not have it in the cpus??? she puts me on hold again , and after 16 min of waiting, i hang up. Im going to have a long time finding them lol

    Want Tidalwave but last time I went to FL TRU (Wednesday), got myself lost coming home! Guess I'll have to wait until Vienna or Bailey's TRU gets some in. Probably going to check one or both of them today.

    Vienna/Tyson's TRU - 2 PM

    I was surprised to see that this TRU finally expanded their TF toys.

    Plenty of Tidal waves, around 7-10, picked one up for myself, all of them had the Universe CDs, also had several Galvatron's with the CD, also 2 Jetfires with CDs also. No Skywarps or Overloads, but they did have Thundercracker, Red Alert, and some others. Also had 2 Unicrons on the endcap below the Tidal waves, Galvatrons, and Jetfires. Tiny Tins were also there. Looks like Jetfire will be one of my next buys next to Overload, if I can find Overload that is.

    Roanoke Target - shockingly, nothing spectacular. They did have a bunch of whatever the hell Universe ape is out now - with cd. Along with other Universe animals (Wave 1, I believe). Universe just doesn't look all that appealing to me - I'll just pick up the Sam's exclusives, and thats probably it. Nothing new on the minicon front, and shelf was packed out with original super primes. Also, Unicrons are gone - empty shelf.

    Roanoke WalMart (Valley View) - if you're looking for Cyclonus or Scavenger, then this is the place for you! Have yet to see a single Unicron there, despite the shelf tag for it. Lots of Super Primes, and their aisle is largely a mess. TFs not only in the designated section, but at the other end of the aisle, too. On a shelf and on pegs. THIS is where you'll find newer minicon teams with the Unicron Battles packaging.

    Williamson Rd Walgreens - Starscream is still holding down that peg all by himself!

    Still haven't seen a Tidal Wave - I don't WANT him, but still - its easier to find Unicron and anything else than a Tidal Wave apparently.

    I just found PL Jetfire at the VV Walmart. TRU was well stocked (but no UNI) but I had it all already....I found TW at teh VV Walmart and Overload at the Hunting Hills Walmart, but they were the only ones I've seen. I need to check the Bonsack Walmart as thats where I founds loads of the Dinobots.

    btw did I happen to have a conversation with you in TRU about a month ago about the G1 Reissues?

    Yeah, I've seen an Overload and Thundercracker appearance at Valley View before, but they disappeared pretty quick - and that was quite some time ago to boot.

    And for the TRU reissue question - nope, wasn't me. But hey, I'm all about the reissues...getting some of those childhood items I never had! So far, the ones they've come out with are ones I didn't have, so I'm a happy camper. Now if they'd just come out with a Wheeljack and those damn pesky dinobots! And frankly, I'm much more impressed with the Takara reissues than the TRU reissues. Still trying to figure out the logic of how I can pay $33 or so for the Takara ones, compared to the SAME PRICE at TRU (with a lamer presentation on the TRU items), and the Takara ones are IMPORTED and RESOLD (BBTS, etc) - and they're STILL a better deal! The TRU ones are just a ripoff, but thats the way it goes.

    agreed on the reissues, but I'm conpulsive, I get everything I see (except those stupid swords). I have a mix of both, and I actually thing the TRU boxes are a little better in some cases
