    I'll be taking more pics tonight or tomorrow. Outside of not causing stress marks in his fists when you place the sword marks in his hands, everything seems the same as Starscream. The cockpit is still wonky.

    Woodinville Target HAD the new Mini-Cons, but between myself and my brother, you wouldn't be able to tell. :) 

    No sightings of Galvatron or Thundercracker yet.

    Oh, and don't bother heading to the Lynwood Wal-Mart for the Galvatrons prym3 mentioned. I snagged those as well. Tee hee!

    Northgate target had nothing Yesterday except 8 -- <b>8!!!</b> pegs of destruction and Race Minicons... seems they've become pegwarmers...

    oh, and 4 pegs of laserbeaks, yuk.

    For anyone in the Tacoma area, the Target on 23rd and Union has Galvatron, the Sea Team, and the Night Attack Team.

    Woodinville Target had Galvy, a TON of Jetfire, the Sea Team Minicons, and 1 Dark Saber minicon team (that I snagged :D )

    As Ben Afleck says in Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season......Applesauce Bitch

    sweet - I'm headin' over now - no Night Attack team?

    edit- got the only sea team they had left, thought i'd missed out, it was on the very last peg - they are cool little guys

    Saw the 1 galvatron they had left, he looks better in tank mode than expected, but still looks to look like ass in robot mode - Maybe i'll get him when he's on Clearance after christmas

    I felt the same way about Galvy. A nice repaint, but not worth picking up when there are some cool new molds on the way.

    No night attack team mini-cons, but I absolutly LOVE the Dark Saber team's colors. Really cool. :thumb : I was a little unimpressed w/ the Sea Team though. Oh well, they'll join that big sea guy when he's released (can't remember his name for the life of me).

    The Spanaway, WA Wal*Mart got in a new case of Supercons last night and they were waiting for me this morning. Sadly, Thrust and Sideswipe are only packed one per case, so I snagged them.

    For those interested, the case breakdown is as follows:
    Sideswipe x1
    Thrust x1
    Smokescreen x1
    Sideways x1
    Blurr x2
    Optimus Prime x2

    Thanks! Well, I woke up this morning with a feeling that there was something new at the Wal*Mart there that wasn't there yesterday. This, compounded by a commercial for new Star Wars figures on Cartoon Network this morning, made it clear to me that something was out there. My feelings are seldom wrong anyway. So, I went there and there were Sideswipe and Thrust.

    I think the Spanaway store is just not checked by many people. I forgot to mention that they got in Thundercracker again.

    I don't know why these new guys ar eonly one per case. Prime and Blurr have been out for a while now, they should be relegated to one per case IMO.

    Damn I forgot about this thread, sorry.

    I found the Sea Team and the Night Attack team at the Factoria Target. For future reference they are ALWAYS a really good target when it comes to getting stuff in, much the same way the Lynnwood Wal-mart always seems to get stuff first.

    I got them last weekend, so they probably don't have any left, but they restock often, it seems. They had a Jetfire there for sure if anyone is still looking for that.

    Hey if anyone has missed out on the first wave minicons, the Fred Meyer on Lake City Way had 2 sets each of the Air Defence and Street Action teams - just posting because I haven't seen these around for a couple of months - they're in the 2nd style package with the character art

    Oh, and if any of you Puget sound guys want to check out the rock, see below: we're doing our thing next tuesday at the croc - I'm also playing in "the Fever Pitch" that nigh, which formerly was the Pinehurst Kids

    Ok, was in West Seattle saturday and decided to wander down to the White Center Target - scored the Air Assault and Night attack Teams - they only had one of each, but they had numerous Sea Teams

    Gotta give these repaints props, the detailing of the molds comes through much stronger on the repaint version - and haveing the AAT opaque makes them look very different from the translucent original versions - just don't care for the black Head on (IIRC) Runway - Night attack team is all around excellent and Broadside and Fetch look GREAT on Red Alerts shoulders

    Found Sideswipe and Thrust at the Renton Wal*Mart. Bought them for me good pal Greg Gaub though, so they're all gone.

    hmmmm maybe I'll have to go up to the Lynnwood Walmart tomorrow...
    How was the selection down there otherwise? I've only gone there once - I kinda try to avoid wal-marts- they smell funny ;)
