    If there are MP Roddies at the Huntsville TRU, someone has hidden them in the store. Alternately they might have been stolen. All the pallets that are in the back are clearance items sent to the HSV location from other stores to be sold in the liquidation. All the new stock that store will ever get is on the shelves. I had a lengthy discussion with the manager that provided an interesting tidbit: The initial stock for the new location is already loaded on trucks, so it is possible that the new location will have some on opening day. I just don't think I'll be willing to wait until the middle of October for a maybe. TRU exclusives can suck my balls.

    LOL, yeah, I suppose so. They are really nice though, especially the Classics. Those figures are HUGE! Very awesome looking. I will probably hit a few more locations tonight or tomorrow and hopefully find a pair with pretty solid paint overall, as I can't wait to display them.

    I feel the same way. I wasted a good bit of time checking the store already just to hear that same information. Not to mention I never got to use the 20% off Facebook coupon. Toy R Us exclusives are horrible. I had hoped they learned from the MP Grimlock fiasco, but I guess not.

    Went by the Huntsville TRU to see if I could find a MP Rodimus... No luck, but there were a couple of Human Alliance Roadbusters there for anyone looking.

    Nope. I found 1 at the 280 one, 1 at the Bessemer one (also found a $20 Leader Starscream so my custom seeker team will soon be complete 8) ) and the other I found at the Patton Creek one. I have been seeking a Grapple for Coaxial but, even hitting up the TJ's near the Ross' as well, no such luck. Seeing lots of Deep Dives and Leader Primes though... And it seems the TJ Maxx's got a whole lot of the RotF Deluxes and the RotF HA wave with Jazz and v2 Bumblebee. Saw at least 3 of each at every TJ Maxx. I thought bout picking up another HA Jazz to make into Stepper. Still thinking about it.

    Really trying to find more Wreck Gars. I got 12 sets of upgrade armor headed to me from Maiden Japan. I want my army to shine! :lol :

    Not sure what Huntsville has but Fayetteville Walmart had 2 Ultimate Optimus Prime's (I picked up 1 because I am a sucker for Prime's with boxes on wheels). For those interested in Thundercats, they had the Sword Of Omens, some classics & 1 Thundertank left. They had 1 Bumblebee's Garage & I saw the empty placeholder's for the other Rescue Bots figs.

    D'oh! You must have just beaten me by minutes/hours. I went to both the Patton Creek and Bessemer Ross and came up empty-handed. =/

    Shot in the dark, but you wouldn't be interested in trading one of those Windchargers for a Wreck-Gar, would ya? PM me if you're at all interested. If not, no worries. The hunt continues...

    Sorry dude. I already mailed the other 2 to my friends and the one I got for me was an extra for a custom. It's in pieces on my workbench with all the red parts painted white.

    Attalla wm has Joes again, but of course wave 1 POC again.

    Has a place for vehicles too, hoping I will find 30th when they come out.

    Still amazed though.

    I'm still looking for windcharger. I took a trip up to Greenville Carolina and stopped at all the targets and tj maxx/ross. No luck.

    I looked for an extra space case for whoever asked on the board, but he just might end up being the hardest to find of the movie figs. I'm assuming Target is getting one case and it looks something like 8 BB, 3 Arcee, and one space case? At least, from the remenants I'm seeing.

    FYI. I'm seeing alot of HA figures at Tj Maxx right now.

    Picked up, BB, Jazz, Sideswipe, and Barricade for 15 bucks a piece. I originally skipped them due to limited funds. Saw Mudflap, but refuse to have the "twins" in my collection.

    So, I'm still not too far off...just most of the targets are getting 2 cases. Still makes it VERY hard to find Space Case. Anyone think any of the Targets will get restock? Cause I'm kinda doubting it.

    Thanks man. I appreciate you still keeping an eye out for me. :) 

    Yeah, pretty sure that was me. I decided I wanted one. ONE stinking DOTM figure from the whole mess of them, and OF COURSE it would turn out to be the most elusive of them all. LMAO, gotta love it. :lol

    For anyone looking for Thundercats figs, ShadowStitch's territory is covered up with them atm. The wife and I had a day free from normal responsibility, and headed that way - 6" classics, the entire 4" line, vehicles, etc. The only thing I didn't see was deluxe 4 inchers, but those are still at the HSV TRU.
