    6th/Wads Walmart did a reset and they had Siege Deluxes and the G1 Optimus Prime. They also have Hot Rods PoP Deluxes for $9. I'm kicking myself for paying full price for that HR back in September.

    Yikes.

    I'll still help with sightings and such...but sweet sufferin' crap these Siege toys are WAY overpriced. $200 for not even all of wave 1, only the ones that I want.

    Looks as though the SuperTarget at Colorado & Alameda did their update, and had one Leader Shockwave and one each of Voyager Megs & Optimus. Some of the smaller class that turns into weapons as well.

    Longmont 119 Walmart had G1 reissue Hot Rod down to $15 bucks in the clearance isle. Found Siege UM, Shockwave, Optimus, and Megs at Orchards Target Saturday.

    But the missiles are indeed an issue:

    Yep, the missiles from G1 don't conform to current safety standards. Previous reissues had the same thing. There is a really interesting article on what they did have to do in 1984 to make the jet robo conform to the standards of the day. In particular, the wings had to be shortened and 'nubbed' off. The front of the wings on the Takara Jet robo go all the way to the engine nacelle and end in a sharp point.

    Anyways, I found Ultra Magnus at Target today. I left one at C-Mills Target. I think they had Megatron there too.

    Hey folks, new to CO, recently stationed at Fort Carson. Is there anywhere around the Springs that hosts a good swap meet/ flea market? On top of looking locally for a good broker of used toys and collectables, I have an X Box One I'd like to trade for a PS4 Slim.

    Still hunting UM and SW if anyone in the northern Denver area happens across them. Found SW Monday at 136th Walmart but didn't have the funds and was gone when I went back.

    Look up "raven's nest" on facebook. He has a slot in an antique store. He used to be on here a lot but I don't think he follows anymore.

    Found Warpath and Gears at Walmart on 25 and 136th in the hot wheels / car section. They only had two each and UPC didn’t register when checking out. A manager had to assist with purchase. Unfortunately I grabbed the only two each for me and my son but means the others in the area might have them.

    Found G1 Gears and Warpath at the 120th Walmart. Bought the last ones. (For the record, Superior, 136th, AND 287 Lafayette are already out as well - lots of driving to find these!)

    For those hunting, Gears and Warpath aren't easy to come by... yet. I talked to an employee, and for now, only some stores got this wave and it's only one case each. The wave 2 case breakdown is:

    2x Gears
    2x Warpath
    3x Bumblebee
    1x Swerve

    However: if wave 1 is anything to go by, I expect these will be readily available in a month or two. I've been to several Walmarts (Brighton, Longmont) that are now chock full of wave 1. I'm talking 30+ on the shelf. So keep looking!
