Oregon Transformers Sightings

I thought we Oregon hunters could use a new forum of our own here. And I figured a good way to start this thread off would be...

STARSCREAM RE-ISSUE!

Found *one*, sitting all by it's lonesome, at the Jantzen Beach TRU! I checked the Clackamas TRU on the 14th, zip, and the Lloyd Center TRU today, also zip. But lo and behold, there he was in all his glory at Jantzen Beach. Box quality is great, but not perfect: there are a couple of small scrapes on the back, so I might open him since I never owned the original as a kid. (Ramulus imagines G-Force screaming "Noooooooo!" in slow motion and laughs >) )

But he's out there, or will be shortly, at a TRU near you...happy hunting!

Good to hear. I saw a Jetfire at the Wood Village Wal-mart tonight, no ruination or anything of note.

On a rather unrelated note any Oregon hunters seen the new GI Joe Spytroops?

You Bastard!!! j/k Congratulations on the find. He should be showing uo in numbers shortly. Fact of the matter is I haven't been looking too much as of late. There's been quite a drought of new toys over the last month or so.

BTW, what are your impressions of the mold? Everything nice and tight? That's how I like em'

You so nasty! I actually haven't opened him yet, probably tomorrow. I'm so sleepy now I don't think I would appreciate the experience properly.

One thing, looking from the outside. Wasn't SS white, or off white? I don't remember him being this dark grey/silver color, but then again, it *has* been a long time since I saw one 'live' back in the 80's. The only jets I had back in the day were Thrust and Ramjet, none of the original three seekers. Maybe I'm confusing Ramjet for SS or something.

And as a side rant, if they are going to put choking warnings on the box, why make the missles so freaking huge? I can see them in the package and I can tell they are the new "safety" size. What happened to the "for adult collecters" nonsense? What, I ask you?! :-)

Jetfire is becoming more frequent. I picked up mine at Target (Wash Sq). Re-issue Ultra Magnus is quickly disappearing.
Some Toys R US's now have stickers out on bins for G1 Starscream, AND they have "Silversteak" and "Jazz" in their computers.

{Edited} Rammy: The Takara reissue Starscream was grey. It's probably right.

the good thing is that here in Oregon, there's like a million Targets around...it only makes our chances better...now only if Fred Myer can get it the same time too then it would be so damn cool.

Good point, Omega...freddies always seems to be behind Target. And it's so frustrating that we have a million Target's and only two Wal*Mart's. :
