    I've had a GREAT haul in the last week. I thought the movie toys were hard to find but, if you're patient you'll find what you need.

    Here's my haul the last week: (With help from my wife)

    Classics Devastator X2
    Classics Grimlock X2
    Classics Rodimus
    Movie Voyager Optimus Prime X2
    Movie Voyager Thundercracker X2
    Movie Voyager Starscream (G1 Repaint)
    Movie Deluxe Jazz X2 (G1 Repaint)

    So keep your heads up.....you'll find what you're looking for!!

    Say that to my brother... he just wants to collect all the G1 toys they have out, and so far he found just one store that had only two of the classics figures!

    I've been lucky the last several times I hit the stores to buy the toys. I got most of the toys from the live-action movie... just need Bumblebee and Bonecrusher, and I think they had Scorponok as well... don't know if they have a Frenzy figure.

    Frenzy comes with Barricade. The only Deluxe-sized alternative is the FAB, or perhaps the Robot Replica.

    Haven't seen any newer stuff for a good long time, but at least I can pick up the older stuff from Kohl's when I'm ready to get that.

    Yeah, stuff starting to come back big time here. The KB Toys here got a couple cases of the Arcee/08 Bee's and Wal-Mart had about a dozen of both Voyager Prime and Megs.

    Sounds like they are clearing out the back. Every other week or so Wal-Mart throws a bunch of old Classics crap on the shelf. I did score a Voyager Prime last week, though. That was the first I had ever seen. Now if I could just find a stupid BB...I don't care what version!

    I just want Dropkick and I'm set until Battle of the Allspark or whatever they're calling the next round of figures. I'm still undecided about the current round of repaints. They look nice, but I really need to cut back.

    Eh, they're starting to trickle back out again. Though Target's got a date of sometime in October some stores are started to see a few case packs trickle in and most of the Targets should have the G1 Screamer and Jazz exclusives available for purchase.

    That might be because, gee, I dont know, they came and went before the end of the first quarter of this year.

    Just a hunch. :dunce

    Is it me or do the movie toys just look crappy on display? This is one of the only lines I can remember (aside from G1) that look better in their boxes.

    Ehh, I like the display I have. It's all action poses and only characters from the movie.

    It's starting to come out slowly but surely 'round these parts. In the last three weeks I've been able to find Arcee, Dreadwing, Payload, Longarm, Dropkick, leader Brawl and Concept BB (and also Final Battle and G1 Jazz, Voyager Megs and Recon Barricade, but didn't buy them). Only need Thundercracker to have all I want before the 'Allspark' stuff. I'm just waiting for when the time comes in a couple months when people are bitching about not being able to find Incinerator, and all thats on the pegs are Concept Bumblebees :p
