    I FINALLY found a Blurr again at the Woody Target and picked him up.
    I gotta say I love this toy! Then again any toy that has a car from that has a flight mode is cool w/ me :D

    Update on CybCon 2k3

    My CybCon 2k3 page has been updated with firm location. I've also created a "registration" form to help me get a good idea of how many people to expect.

    Thanks!

    I used to live near that K-mart, artie.....the one that's on like Aurora and 130th or something?

    Small world. Man that place never had jack! hahah...I can't believe they actually got the adventure team.

    Has anyone found Jetfire up here recently? I might be able to afford one soon.....I'll probably check the Bellevue TRU first, though. They always have stuff early.

    Just checked out the Lynnwood Wal*Mart and Target as well as the Northgate Target and Toys R Us yesterday. Here is the breakdown on their current stock:

    Lynnwood Wal*Mart: Same ol' shit (SOS) mini-cons (Destruction, Land Military, Race Team) and some Wave 1 Supers. No Megatrons, Optimus's, Scavengers, Red Alerts, Starscreams....NOTHING!!! Not even the new Ruination Gift Set!

    Lynnwood Target: Pretty much the same. SOS. They did have an Super Optimus Prime and Megatron. But that was it. At least they had the new TMNT there...I picked up a few :D 

    Northgate Target: At this point, my search was becoming rediculous!!! Once again, only wave 1 minicons filled about six pegs and three pegs filled with wave 1 supercons. No Megas or bigger. Truly pathetic...

    Northgate Toys R Us: Umm...well, the guy here who I always see (short, big belly, dark long hair in a pony tail with a mustache) was there dissing the transformers section when I arrived. EVEN HE WAS PISSED that the distribution center hasn't sent him DICK SQUAT!!! He said he hasn't seen any G1 Prime or Hot Rod re-issues in TWO MONTHS!!! Pretty much wave 1 mini-cons on 12 pegs, with Laserbeak's and demolishers on the 8 other pegs. Oh yeah, and about twenty G1 Re-issue Ultra Magnus's and RID AAOP's!!! By far the WORST Toys R Us in the Northwest.

    Needless to say Artie, I did not find what I was seeking - Adventure Team and Jetfire. I don't think I will ever find them here around Seattle...:cries

    MUST HAVE JETFIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :redface

    Try your local Wizards of the Coast stores. The ones in Tacoma and Puyallup had Brawn and Windcharger heavilly in stock in December.

    Action City Comics in Federal Way had them at one time too, though they were more expensive there. Jim's good people though, so I didn't mind paying the extra money at the time. That was before I found them at Wizards though.

    And for anyone interested, I also found the new GIJoe Spy Troops figures at the Auburn Wal*Mart yesterday.

    Yesterday I saw the Artic Camo Runination at the Lynnwood Wallymart. They also had the Adventure Team Minicons.
    The Lynnwood Target also had the Adventure Team Minicons.

    I believe they had 3 or 4 of the Artic Runiation sets.

    They look pretty cool and all, but I just can't justify spending 25 bucks for a toy that I already have when there's other stuff on my want lists. :)

    Bot a sighting so much as an invitation. With Greg Gaub's help, I found a Transformers Tacoma group on Yahoo. I joined last month, but no one seems to be actively participating. So, I thought I'd see if anyone here would like to join since it's free and all. Click the link to be transported away... Transformers Tacoma
