    WALLY Pico Rivera this evening. Many Skywarps at $60, Black Soundwaves, and Freeway Jazz with the usual stuff. The first U.S. sighting of Bludgeon should be any time now.

    Wow that sucks, hope things turn around for you real quick.

    During a quick stop by Target I saw the new Prime/Bumblebee Animated Activators and HA Skids but not much else new (no Mighty Muggs, Animated Jazz/Soundwave or Bludgeon/Ironhide). I still haven't seen Jetfire in stores whenever I go. I saw some Movie Robot Heroes 3pack that I've never seen before (Prime, Ironhide and someone else) as well.

    :O Sorry to hear that SS. I now how it feels. The same happened here. Money is getting tight and our hobbies must go to a second place. I wish you the best. Let us know when you get to your new neighborhood. :thumbs2:

    Just got ROTF Dirge, technically in retail.

    STORY TIME, YOU MUST LISTEN IF YOU WANT ANY OF THE WAVE 1 NEST ALLIANCE DELUXE FIGURES! Once upon a time, in the land of Anaheim (near Knott's), on the south-west corner of Ball & Beach lies a shop called "My D-Pins and Collectibles", the owner of the store is a man named Josh. One day Josh made an order from Hasbro for the figures of Tuner Mudflap, Alliance Bumblebee, Armorhide, Dirge (and Gears), and as of yesterday he got the shit in so get the fuck over there!

    The boxes have:

    2x Mudflaps
    2x Bumblebees
    2x Dirges
    1x Armorhide
    1x Gears

    This means Armorhide is gonna be the sought-after one. He has BB, Mudflap, and Dirge for $18 with Armorhide at $22. Since I did get this at retail (and he got his boxes from Hasbro) does this count to be news?

    He put them up on eBay but he'll sell them in-store you just gotta ask him, he also has a bunch of other awesome collectible Transformers in-store amongst other stuff.

    Here's his site: My-D Pins & Collectibles

    My-D Pins & Collectibles
    1215 S. Beach Blvd., Suite D, Anaheim, CA 92804

    As I said before it's on the SouthWest corner of Ball & Beach, the same corner with the El Pollo Loco.

    you lucky little bugger.... :banghead:  damit..

    but anyway. speaking of new toys, i found legends class wheelie, soundwave, and power armor O.P. at several wallgreens pharmacy stores across the san diego county aria. soundwave is a FREAKING huge legends figure. huge altmode, and very nice bot mode. wheelie is very nice as well. got the op repaint as well cause i wanted someone to go with that silver repaint of jetfire that came in the kmart 4 pack.

    well... it was kind of weird that the Armorhide being priced the highest among these ?? Good that the owner has faith on the name Armorhide (didn't he know its a repaint ?) Anyone should probably mark the Dirge the highest instead... oh well...

    What especially put that notion into his head is that when he first put 'em up on eBay Armorhide was the first one to sell. Noticing this and the fact that there're only one per box he figured that'd be the most sought-after. While I do want it, I don't quite $22 want it.

    Where is everyone finding these Mighty Muggs? I've never seen ANY of them. Are they in a different section than where the other TF's are? Maybe I just have really poor timing. They don't really look like my cup o' tea, but I'd at least like to look at one in person. Ya'naw mean?

    Last I checked there were a ton of Peceptors and Insecticons at TRU in Dublin. No sign of anything new at Target Dublin or either of the Walmarts in Pleasanton or Livermore.

    Has anyone in the bay area seen one of the WM exclusive red Powerglides recently? I didn't really want one when I was seeing them all over the place. Now that I want one, wouldn't you know I can't find one anywhere.

    I've seen a few Mighty Muggs at the local TRU amongst all the other TFs, only one I definitely recall seeing is Jazz.

    Not my thing so I didn't pay much attention

    Unfortunately not, he only has the Deluxes right now, I don't know if he's getting the Voyagers or not, and I guess it turns out I told him about the Bumblebee/Soundwave two pack, so he's not getting that anytime soon.

    people said the MM are TRU exclusive, and they aren't really in different section the way TRU shelves them...

    The WM Exclusive powerglide I believe.. the WM at mountain view still had them last week. but all priced at full without discount... I guess most other WMs sold them out since most stores have discounted them..

    It seems like for the newest wave deluxes are stuck somewhere.. and it seems like the ones around my area... Target still have tons of old waves, Tru stops getting them, and WM probably have them at the pile of pile of stuff at the garden area... you know.. for $18 if I see it at a comic store, I 'd get one first...

    btw, I returned from Rwc Target and nothing worth to mention except a pair of TFA ES soundwave/freeway jazz.


    Back from MTV WM , and I still saw at least two red powerglide and a fews other exclusive at $30. I found a deluxe icecream twin (in old package if you wonder) somewhat hidden (hanging at the edge) and I couldn't resist it at $8. They restocked more than a couple cases of RotF legend class but not in the wave with Wheelie. (I can't tell if they were picked already or not since those pegs are quite full) I tend to think its not the latest wave. of course I still don't see any new RotF deluxe yet...

    OT : spotted a new case of DC Universe Wave 10 as its my first time seeing a whole set of 7 different figures to combine the bonus. And I am glad I have no interest on these...

    Huntington Beach TRU added another case of Wave 3. Picked up the Shockwave. Now there are 3 Primes, 3 BB's and 1 Jazz on the shelf as of 11am.

    Nothing new at Target, except for some new LEGO releases.
