I'm rooting for you. That toy is fantastic.
It's a few bucks above retail and depends on the item. Most of the TR/POTP deluxes were $20 but then the leader class figures are normal retail at $50.
I picked up SS32 Optimus and SS35 Jetfire for $35/55 which is $5 over retail on each, but now I don't have to drive all over town trying to hunt them down anymore so I happily paid the markup. Only these were marked up probably because they're new or he knows they'll be high in demand. The guy seems like a really nice average joe trying to run a business so I'm willing to support them.
I don't recall if I saw a TR misfire though. You could call them to ask ahead of time.
Going to echo Tprime on this one. Any markup he charges for new items is usually pretty low if he even adds a markup at all (the Leaders were retail when I bought them from him). He may have a loose Misfire; I can't recall last I checked so don't quote me on it. You can always call to ask.
Yeah, I've dealt with Sterling at Cape, just wish he shipped stuff.
Usually they are a couple bucks above retail. They don't charge tax if you pay with cash, so it evens out. I got my Misfire at MyDPins, as I was also unable to find it at a regular store.
My D Pins and Cape are awesome stores, wish I was closer to LA (about 3 hours away).
Any luck in Riverside or the IE as a whole? I'm starting on my hunt for SS Sideswipe.
I was able to score Siege Shockwave and Ultra Magnus at Target on Landess a couple weeks ago. I had to ask them to pull it out from the back. I've never seen it on the floor since they released, so maybe they still have them in the back? Might as well try. Good luck!
The Laguna Springs Drive Target in Elk Grove had...
2 siege Optimus Primes, 2 sideswipes and 1 Skytread.
2 Studio Series Bone Crushers, 1 WWII Bumblebee and 1 Rusty Camero Bumblebee
They also had 1 Target Exclusive Rusty VW Bumblebee/TLK Bumblebee box set which I grabbed.
Check your local Comic shops for Seige 38 Prime. I was able to snag one today in Manteca. I'll have a short review on him up later nonight
Thank you! I'll see if I can make it some time.
Cool - FYI there's a review thread started already so drop your thoughts and pix in there. I am looking forward to this one!

Anyone found Vintage Collection Warpath/Gears in the Bay Area yet?
Thanks for the link! I did a video review of him. Glad to have this Prime, he's really something
