    Why not break down and get the SDCC version from HTS? I got the regular version from TRS when I was in OR and it didn't have the detail that the SDCC version has.

    Try the one in Clearwater right near Enterprise road. I called and asked them to hold one for me cause nobody else had him and when I looked in the aisle to see what else they had, there were two others sitting on the shelf.

    Waterford Lakes Super Target has 2 CW Ironhides, 1 Prowl, 1 Mirage. 5 or 6 Voyager Hotspots.

    Also, they still have 2 Black Series 6" Finns, and one Chewbacca for anybody still looking.

    Hi everyone. I'm from Toronto. Work is sending me to Ruskin FL, 33570 near the end of Sept. Are there any places there i should stop by as a tourist (ie: toyshops?) or anyplace that gets good stock of toys?
    Thanks!

    Honestly, the Tampa area kind of sucks for getting the latest waves in. Your best bet is the Toys R Us in Brandon. Early on in the waves, I got a few good figures there. Kind of far for me to check that often. You might get lucky with a Walmart occasionally (I haven't in a while, just the same old sad Silverbolts and Optimus'). I did see some wave 3 Protectobot limbs at the Clearwater TRU (along with a ton of the MP Bluestreaks).

    Hey, guys! For anyone looking, we just got in two Leader Starscreams and have one Ultra Magnus left at the shop. We haven't priced them yet so they aren't on the sales floor, but if you stop in over the next couple of days, you can come find me and I will help you out :)

    At the shop, eh? The shop. Yes, the shop. The shop commonly refered to as " the shop ". The only shop called the shop. Google mapping the shop. :p 

    So, which shop?

    The closest store is the TRU in Brandon. A bit of a drive, but another "haven" is Emerald City Comics in Clearwater/St. Pete. About an hour or so drive from Ruskin, but they have quite a variety of TFs from time to time.

    Ask for Spider; normally, if somebody comes in asking about Transformers, my coworkers will fetch me from my workshop anyway :)  We're all fans, but I'm the one with stupid levels of knowledge..

    Ah, by the way: Ultra Magnus sold yesterday, but we still have Starscreams! Looks like we may be ordering more UM's if he's still being solicited, so let us know if you want one!

    Was in town on a business trip and had seen the store mentioned on the boards, so we stopped by and the place is friggin awsome! Spider is super helpful and knows his stuff. I picked up a couple of 3rd party items, WST Blaster, and some other nonTF items. Will definitely go back next time I'm around.

    TRU Brandon

    BTW, I stopped by TRU in Brandon yesterday, had a Cyclonus, a few Hotspots (first I've seen in the wild), and quite a few wave 3's (no 4's...). Lots of Bluestreaks too.

    Not a local sighting but in case anyone isn't following the TRU MP Starscream thread, pre-orders have gone live again on TRU.com for those seeking him.

    Edit: Nvm, sold out as I posted.

    nothing exciting as far as TFs go but i scored the full Hulkbuster set of Marvel Legends at the Waterford Target this morning. there was a leftover War Machine hanging when i left.

    are there any other Marvel collectors in this thread? if so, i could use tips on where best online to find sighting info and the like!
