    I should have checked out tfsource. Instead I ordered blue prowl from bbts and police prowl offa ebay. I would have saved a few bucks on shipping by doing it both with tfsource. Thanks for the link though.

    BBTS has I think some good deals right now with the sale they are having. Highly suggest to check it out if your not caught up. I'd also suggest to just pre-order future alternators from them. The mark up is just $5 (plus shipping I know) but it relieves the stress of not finding the darn figures at stores. I went ahead and bought a $27 Alternator Prowl on ebay because I really want to get him in the old style red box packaging and thats becoming rare now with the new packaging coming out.

    Crumtastic. Sheesh.

    Found Side Swipe at the KB toys in the West Covina Mall. There were about 15 others. They also had the new cybertron figures that come with DVDs. Nothing new in the ultra size class.

    I remember one store that only had Swindles and Hounds on the shelf. I guess that city HATED jeeps or something. Next year Hasbro is going to give us a Swindle repaint in orange (Rollbar). Haven't they learned that people don't like jeeps that much.

    WalMart Woodland Hills, Just when I was about to cuss how crap that place is re: TFs, guess who I spot, a lone Cybertron Defense Red Alert in the box without CD label. Newest deluxes where also there. Northridge Target had the new basics as of yesterday.

    TRU in Hawthorne on Rosecrans had a crap-load of those Cyb Minicon 2-packs tonight. I believe there were three different sets...if anyone's interested.

    Aren't they just straight repaints? I thought I had read that. I'm sure I could easily be mistaken. I sure do hope they have remolded heads, at least. That would add to my avaliable heads for customs. :D
