    Nothing at the Mission Viejo Walmart. Pegs empty for TF and Joes for the good stuff.

    Bought Payload, thanks to Cataclizm1! Missed out on Longarm though :( 

    I'm still looking for Longarm and Dropkick, please PM me if you see them in the LA area.

    BTW, was there ever a sighting of Titanium 6'' G1 Ultra Magnus anywhere in California?

    If you are talking about Jazz, Frenzy, and Optimus, I saw them at the Walmart on Creenshaw on Thursday. I didn't report it here because I didn't know they were new until I saw a sighting being frontpaged a couple of days later. They only had one of each, so I'm pretty sure they are gone by now, but they could have restocked.

    Seems to be a small re-stock of older Leader class movie toys. I saw both regular Optimus and Megatron in the Richmond and Pinole Targets.

    Attention LA area collectors. Just got back from a store that had a recon Barracade, a Dropkick, and just stocked a buttload of movie voyagers including rescue rachet and thundercracker. If interested in the location, PM me.

    An idea for dealing with scalpers

    I know I'm one of those guys, but I hope you were not talking about me ;) 
    (just in case, let me tell me you I've been a collector and active member on TFArchive.com since 2001)

    Anyway, let me suggest a system that I believe could be a little more effective than what we are doing here with the "found something somewhere PM me if interested" thing. (Which by the way is working great, and I think we should keep it going on, along with what I'm suggesting)

    We could create a list (I could host it and update it, at least during the test stages, if no one else is interested in doing so), with the following information:

    Username:
    Member since:
    City/Area:
    Transformers I'm looking for:
    Contact info: (phone,email,IM contacts, etc. whatever you want to provide)
    First name: (optional)

    Let's say I go to my local Walmart and find this particular Transformer that Usernamex is looking for. Then, if he lives nearby, and I think he is a cool guy, I could call him or SMS and let him know immediately about the sighting, or even offer to buy the toy for him if I feel like it.

    Would this work?
