    have you (or anyone) been into the Lynnwood walmart lately?
    I still want to get that guy too!

    This year is insanity: on top of all this transformer goodness, my band is putting out a CD the last week of February, I'm going to Montana in March or April to go snowboarding, trying to make it to Cybcon in august, I'm getting Married in september (which eats up about all my spare time preparing)

    crazy.

    damn I want thrust and the Sea Team

    The Puyallup Wal-Mart is completely out of Ruinations. All they had the last time I went in were a bunch of Megatrons. While I already have it, I hope they restock Ruination so others have a chance to get it.

    Say, artie, where will we be able to pick up your band's CD? Don't hurt yourself snowboarding. :)  Also, CybCon is in July, not August. So, hopefully, that helps you out.

    Aaaaaand as a newlywed myself, all I can say on your egtting married, outside of "Congratulations!" is either get a wedding coordinator or elope. Planning your own wedding and reception is a pain in the arse. Don't expect anything to go the way you intend it to.

    Hey Artie! That's great! I hope though that doesn't mean we can't hang out! I have not been to Lynnwood Wal*Mart lately. Unfortunately, my wife has cut me off for a while, but like I said about the last week of February - lots of time...and I get paid!! :D 

    As for your wedding Artie and all this craziness going on this year - take it one event at a time. What kind of music does your band play? I got married in August and everything went very smoothly! We did hire a coordinator so as mentioned before - it does help! Any honeymoon ideas yet?

    So, I suppose no one's in the mood to meet each other in the near future? Aren't you in the least bit interested in meeting a fellow transfan??? :confused:  :D

    Starscreams spotted and bought at Lynnwood TRU. And my buddy that works there, said they probably have some more Apex Armor Prime in the back. I didn't check since I already got the Japanese God Jinrai for under 30 :D 

    The Target up there, also still had a couple of Jetfires for those looking.

    Happy Hunting

    With chrome choke-on-it-and-die regular length missile :) 

    me too, except I think mine was $35

    Anyone seen the Arctic Ruination in the last week round the puget sound - (I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record) I just have been able to intersect time and money - it's a bit of a trek to any Wal-mart from Seattle

    I saw the Optimus Prime and Megatron bobbleheads at the Spencer's store at the Tacoma Mall today. They are $14.99 a piece. Prime looks kinda silly, but Megatron Looked all right. I passed on both being unemployed and all.

    The Wal*Mart in Spanaway, WA has the Sea, Night Attack, and Air Assault Mini-Con teams along with Galvatron and Thundercracker. They also have a number of Jetfires as well incase you missed out on them. Also interesting to note is that Galvatron rang up at $18.80, less than the Maxcons.

    Thanks for the links, Artie. Almost makes me wish I had waited for the ML versions. But, I'm not a patient man. :)
