Redmond Target has Blitzwing, Octone, one of each.
One Blitzwing at Woodinville Target [I bought the Octone], one Shuffler, and one Repugnus.
Picked up TLK premier edition deluxe Sqweeks at the Lacey Walmart last night. They still had a Drift, two Slugs, and two Steelbanes.
He's freakin awesome huh!
North Fed Way Walmart had 2 Voyager Scorns. I bought the Nitro they had.
SC TRU had 2 Steelbanes on Saturday.
I hate hate hate that they couldn't figure out how to get the handlebars to turn into hands. Partsforming is one of my least favorite aspect of Transformers toys. I just went ahead and took off the vehicle mode handlebars, so he doesn't have handlebars sticking out of his neck. Made the difference between keeping him and returning him/ebay.
Now to figure out how to transform him with the handlebar hands on without having to remove them.
I just keep those in his tackle box
Come on Hasbro, was it really that hard?
Hey,. That's pretty good. I may have to copy you
2x full cases of Marvel legends Netflix wave
TF5 wave 3 voyagers and wave 2 deluxe minus sqweeks
Anybody seeing more Wave 2 TTC's getting out anywhere, or were they a One Shipment & Done?
You'd think if Target didn't like pegwarming they'd discount to get rid of deadstock...
BTW, snagged a spare Screamer to repaint as Skywarp. Just need to figure out what shade of purple, which glossiness of black and which Movieverse F-22 was the same sculpt as the correctly-tailed 'Cracker (IIRC, TF07/ROTF sculpts have pointy tails more like a MiG-29, while DOTM has more correct trapezoid fins)...
I've checked the Northgate Target in Seattle a few times, @Diamondback , and they only have Wave 1's on one and a half pegs. Sorry! I'll keep checking, though
I was at Northgate Target yesterday and found a few new things I hadn't seen before, including TLK Barricade, Nitro, and Scorn... and TR Repugnus!
EDIT: why does this forum keep posting iPhone pictures sideways?!?!
TLK Deluxe Barricade:
TLK Voyager Nitro, Scorn, and special edition Sqweeks, along with TR Repugnus:
TLK Leader Optimus Prime, and Voice Changer Bumblebee and Megatron:
TLK Turbo Changer Dragonstorm, and Turbo Changer set:
Either shoot in landscape or edit your photo if it is portrait. Usually I just crop it a little bit
Not sure if this is better asked here or in Comics Discussion, but I'll try here first.
Does anybody know any stores that carry current TF comics?
The two nearest me, Leviathan and Mill Geek, don't, although MG does have quite a few Marvel G1 back-issues.
According to my quick Google search, you may live up in the Bothell area. I don't know how far you're willing to drive, but Dreamstrands in Seattle (Greenwood, to be exact, on 85th Street NW) carries the latest TF comics, TPB's, and has complete sets of individual comics (like the Drift series) as well. I really like the store and the owner is very friendly and knowledgeable about comics in general.
Dreamstrands website (updated for big stuff only it seems)
Dreamstrands Facebook (updated much more frequently)
Is there something specific you're looking for?
Most urgently a LSotW hardcover, since you can only get the extras in a physical copy. I've been wanting to get Primal Scream from Titan Books too but since it's so ancient my best bet is probably online... Aside from that a few of the current bevy of IDW titles, LL, ROM, Micronauts, etc.
Dreamstrands sounds like a great place from their site and their fb page but they're certainly a distance away from me. There're still a number shops within that radius that I still need to check out though, so unless someone else has a suggestion I'll keep working my way outwards until I hit something. If not it's still good to know there's one around for sure, so thanks for the recommendation.
Chehalis Walmart has one each of the TLK Sqweeks wave, TWO SCORNS and a single Nitro Zeus.
I took the other Zeus. The package was beat to shit so they gave me a 10% discount. I've received a bigger discount at Target for a slightly bent card, but I wasn't going to push it. The figure inside was fine though!
One of the Scorns has some pretty poor paint applications (for example, only one side of his crotch plate is painted) but the other one looks fine.
Tumwater Walmart has two Wolfwires, which tells me that someone bought two each of Windblade, Misfire, and Twin Twist. Bleh.
But, the Fred Meyer has a few Cosmos and Seasprays, at $11.99, but with a buy-one-get-one-half-off (which brings them down to a normal retail price, haha)
Same exact thing at the Tacoma Walmart. Come on.
Olympia TRU has two Leader Dragonstorms left.
The one I got has no problems with the heads yet - I've also been careful with them.
