    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....

    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.

    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.

    And if SP is on sale, I'll get him.
