    Awesome! Hollar at me if you see me. I will be wearing a light blue t-shirt with Optimus Prime on it and a blue baseball cap with the Autobot logo on it.

    Tricon went pretty well for me. Got to meet Neal Kaplan and got a sealed G1 figure for $20. Micromaster Transport Roughstuff.

    Same here! didn't see you there, but I didn't get there until 2:30.
    I was gonna get that semi-complete G1 Highbrow for $25, but I ended up getting a complete MIB Special Edition Megazord from 1994 for $45!

    Yeah that's a nice deal. I was already gone by 2:30. I don't usually tend to stay for the whole duration of those shows.

    Its the one surefire way to get the big expensive stuff cheap is to wait near the end of the convention.
    But it also helps to be there early for the stuff that sells out fast. I think I only saw 2 booths selling TF toys

    There were 3 when I got mine in Dunbar. Sadly there's no room in the house for it, so it shall live in the garage when I am not messing with it.

    Ugh! I called yesterday to see if they had any before I drove over there and was told they hadn't seen anything like that(without even checking the shelves) and told me to call back Monday.

    Not sure. I was there pretty early into the day so I asked somebody to check in the back for me and they brought one out.

    Morgantown target has wave 3 deluxes and a brawn. Everything else is old stuff
    Medowbrook target has wave 4 deluxes along with bumblebee, road burn, and kickback
    Medowbrook TRU was a bust.

    I hope you guys find cheap Fort Maxes!
    I got mine for $30 last year from selling a $100 lego set I found on clearance for $30, so I don't need a second Fort Max. If I had the spare money I'd run to Beckley's Ollies and see if they had one so I could hold on and sell it later to get trypticon for cheap.

    I never rely on store employees to actually check. They either don't know what you're talking about or are just too lazy to check. The ones in Dunbar were all on the top shelf of an otherwise empty endcap and were all the way at the back of the shelf. So if an employee actually did look, they'd be easy to miss.

    Got my fort max at the Dunbar ollies. They must have had more in the back because there were four left after I got mine

    If anyone goes to the Beckley Ollie's please post if they have any.

    I'm going to Beckley this Friday.

    MacArthur Wal-Mart had a big display of TLK toys back at the Entertainment/Electronics Department, nothing new past Wave 1 that I seen.

    Summersville Walmart has 5 a piece TR legends Brawns, Roadburns, and Bumblebees. They aren't in the toy isle but in a special display near electronics with a giant movie Prime cutout. Also tons of wave 2 revision deluxes, and a leader PMOP. Lots of movie crap too if that's your thing.
