Today I went to TRU in Rosedale and bought Bumblebee, Crankcase, and Ironhide.
I went to a Target and Wal-Mart on my lunch. Target had nothing but the Cyberverse preview Optimus Prime, Wal-Mart had Voyager Prime, Megatron, and Ironhide, as well as Deluxe Bumblebee, Crankcase, Starscream, Skids, Roadbuster, and Ratchet. Stopped at two Targets, a Toys "R" Us, and a Wal-Mart on my way home. One Target, again, had nothing new out. The other is the one nearest to my house, and I called them on my way looking for Leader Ironhide. They said they had one, so I asked them to hold it for me; when I got there, it was whatever the replacement Fast Action Battler line Ironhide is called. I was SOOOOOO disappointed. I stopped at my local Wal-Mart to pick up some groceries and they had Voyager Prime and Ironhide, most of the same Deluxes. I asked them to look in the back, and after a disappointing release day, and about twenty minutes of looking, a very nice lady brought me Voyager Shockwave. Definitely brightened my afternoon after the Ironhide fiasco.
Well I must be one of the few not really interested in this movies' line of toys. Don't get me wrong I have ordered the two race cons, the dread con, sideswipe and jolt but not too many more. Gas prices are killing me so I stopped hunting all together and I am really looking forward to some of the Prime toys coming out later this year. I'll probably change my mind and go nuts once I see the movie but for now I will hold off on buying in favor of saving my money for gas. I hate gas companies....
Sigh. My Walmart didn't stock today. But there's a whole ton of empty pegs.
The sad part was i went to TRU and all they had left was two of them. I am going to Walmart tomorrow and see what they have
Really a disappointing day for me. Had plans to buy a bunch of stuff, like they launched the RotF toyline, but there was hardly anything out there. Target had NOTHING, Toys R Us had a few things- but not much (I was able to get Voyager Megs), Kmart had the 3D masks (bought Prime) and they also had 2 voyager Primes... WTF gives? The last two movies had everything out in every store on the date advertised!... I guess the upside is, the joy of the hunt has been prolonged for me.
Better to have gas in your car than look like a douche bag listening to an iPod
wearing tiny shorts with a slicked helmet the upper part of a jumpsuit
with NIKE runners and riding a 10-speed bike.
No that is not sarcasm, I hate people who do that.
I feel kind of left out, since I am waiting for my birthday to see if I get any of the DOTM figures I put on the list.
Didn't expect to, but I spent everything I had...then I saw Crankcase. Oh well, I'm VERY pleased with what I got.
After about 6 hours of opening, transforming, and fiddling:
Ugh I spent more than I intended to...which I figured would happen anyway.
I picked up:
Leader Sentinal Prime
I bought skyhammer, megatron, shockwave, roadbuster, topspin and kmart exclusive HA bumblebee and backfire
Traded for sentinal prime and optimus
I'm only interested in Sentinel Prime I might buy him but that is a very small might.
walmart had cyberverse marked at $4.97 on the shelf so i got powerglide, sentinel, optimus, ironhide, blackout at $3 off. they rang up at $7.98.
they seem to make a lot of mistakes like that at that store. im going to keep my eye on them. the checker found a supervisor to go check it out and when they found the shelf had the wrong price they changed it and gave it tome for the shelf price. i wasnt sure what their policy was on that.
I hope to find Crankcase, Icepick, and Blackout.
And if SP is on sale, I'll get him.
Yeah dude I have no idea, its like the twilight zone......
They only had Optimus Prime, Megatron and Ironhide for the Voyagers at Target. Which is too bad, 'cos I REALLY wanted to get Skyhammer! Ah well, probably pick him up in the weekend!
Haul for the night on Twitpic
im just happy to get cyberverse sentinel and legion class crankcase.it gives me a hint of happiness to get legends figures first becuase back when the first movie came out the first toy i got that stated my collection now was legends barricade who i love and still have to this day!!!
I got my top two wants, Starscream and Crankcase, early at Walmart, then today I got Sentinel Prime and Megatron at Target, and Shockwave at another Walmart - the next three on my "prioritiy" list!
Picked up Deluxe Starscream going to look for Shockwave tomorrow.
