    Grumble.... gonna be a busy week, so won't have time to check... But if I remember, last year, the Ross / Marshall's / TJMaxx stores had a ton of the Hardhead / Powerglides, so hopefully there'll be a bunch of Lugnuts too (eventually).

    Which Fullerton one did you go to? I went to the one off Yorba Linda and snagged the last Lugnut and the last 2 Deep Dives. There were no Grapples or Windchargers.

    Brea Ross had Voyager Strafe. I put it behind some girls toys.

    So if anyone needs a Deep Dive, let me know! Or if you got an extra Grapple and no Deep Dive, we can do a swap!


    Also, a little E3 update. I don't think I can get much or any extra swag. Kinda sucks. There's really no good swag this year compared to the previous years, I heard. I was only able to get an extra Harvest Moon plushie, but since my friend got there late today and they ran out, I gave it to her. It was also her bday.

    Didn't go to Yorba Linda.
    I went to Malvern. Really all I want is Grapple.

    Tomorrow I'll go check the Ross in Buena Park shopping plaza even though the walmart there reeks of scalper rats.

    And I'll re-check the one on harbor and chapman if I have time.. Unless someone really wants to ship/hook me up with a grapple *hint hint*...

    Thanks for the tip! Picked up BB and SS and now have the 4 racecars...just need a deluxe Leadfoot when he ever decides to show up

    I went to Ross HB and Ross Santa Ana/Costa Mesa (Bristol)...nothing but a few TD's. The TJ Maxx next to it didn't have anything either :(

    At the prices they're at, if any of my fellow SoCalers spot Lugnut, Strafe and Windcharger at Ross, put me down for one of each.

    Funny story:

    I’m a big believer that when it comes to buying toys, kids get dibs. But it was really hard to remember that yesterday as I rounded the toy aisle at a Ross just as a kid picked up the only Grapple. Mom even said, “Here’s another transformer,” as she showed him Deep Dive. The kid said he liked “this one” (the Grapple). Sigh.

    I kept them in my field of vision as they wondered the store, hoping against hope the boy would get bored and find something else, or the mom would change her mind and say something like “no toys today.” But the kid just followed the mom around, happily tossing up Grapple in the air and catching it. After about 10 minutes I began to feel too much like the creepy guy following a kid around, so I grabbed the only Lugnut and headed out.

    Five Rosses later, and still no Grapple. Looking back, the kid did seem really happy with his toy (and I did get Lugnut), so everything worked out.

    Anybody see Colbert last night? Makerbot 3000 could be the beginning of a new era in toy collecting.
