I find things every once in a while but it usually days wasted searching in vain as, within an hour of someone spotting anything in a 25 mile radius of here it is gone. Like the whole HOC thing at Fleet Farm, according to the manager one asshole bought every single one that they had (8 cases worth) and the only reason I got the 2 lonely ones I did there is they were being held by an employee and he changed his mind and were put into shop back.

I should just give up and pay the fucking scalpers on the net, it looks like I'm in scalper central anyway

i'm sorry to hear that.
Next weekend when I go out to Riverfalls, I am going to check Oakdale and Hudson Fleet Farms.
Let me know which HOC you need, and I will pick them up for you, assuming that asshole scalper didnt go there.
Oh, sorry, WI isn't a part of this thread anymore, so I guess I can only mention what I find in Oakdale in this thread.
Keep an eye on the WI thread in case I find anything in Hudson!

All I have to say is Whoa.


I went to the Wal-Mart from Sucksville (Brooklyn Park) tonight to get some soda and just on the snowballs chance in hell I asked about the new Universe figures. I was told by the stock boy that they had them but could not sell them for a couple of weeks. I argued with him and proceded to waste my time. I then went up front and had them get the Store Manager, I explained the situation to her and she proceded to have me go with her into the back to show her what I was talking about. Sitting on the back room shelves next to the upcoming Energon stuff was the new Universe cases. After checking that indeed they were ok to sell (She called Fridley) she opened the cases and let me have a set.

I get up to the checkout and low and behold, they are not in the computer system.

Finally 30 min after I got there I had Ratchet (Inferno as far as I am concerned) and Inferno (Red Alert for me) are mine

New Energon huh? So it is true. I had the same problem today, except the new Universe figs were on the shelf already, but not in the computer, I told the lady the price was $8.76. LOL

Just because they have a ton of old MOTU, they could still get snakemen, it is treated as a seperate line...
By the way i have seen all BTR sets at fridley and coonrapids walmarts as well

Pruned the garbage back to business

Talked to a TRU DM today and was told that Prime should be in the shelves before Christmas, and possibly as soon as a couple of weeks. He also said they are going to have the new Universe and Armada Deluxe/Supercons very soon.
