    No way! The sales clerk at my local TRU was fibbing. I wonder if I should start seriously hunting in Central Florida, then..

    I'm beginning to think the Florida Mall TRU sales personnel weren't being honest with me

    More than likely, they were already holding them for Mike's Comics across the street. He'll probably be selling them with a $20 markup soon.

    Yeah, that place is infamous. The comic shop across from the Florida Mall TRU has had three or four different names since I've lived in Orlando, although to be fair, I don't know if the owners have all been different. Whether the TRU employees are in on it or not, you'll never find anything good at that TRU, due to that scalper shop.

    I, um... can't comment on that place. I mean, I could, but.. yeah. Anyway! No box set in Altamonte, but I did snag Soundwave there. I won't say it's a great toy, because it isn't. There's one Triggerhappy that I should have gotten, instead.

    In other news, Power Rangers is shockingly enjoyable! I was so pleased that I had to recommend it Now, to start picking up those exclusive Legacy figures...

    I'm in the same boat with you... Both with the shop, AND the Power Rangers figures, lol

    I'm checking out the millennia locations today; I will post up if I find anything. I'm kind of disappointed that I can't make it out to Waterford today, since that Toys "R" Us, Target, and Walmart always seem to get all the goodies first.

    Score! The TRU at millennia has one box set left now, up at customer service. There was no space on the floor since their transformers display is like, 3 pegs and 2 sqft. of shelf space.

    I only want Nautica, so if anyone wants to buy the other characters off me just give a shout. I will probably be throwing them on eBay later tonight, before everyone finds this set and they are worthless, LOL.

    Thought it worth a mention that Walmarts website has Wave 3 Deluxes down to 13 (well most of them any way) with free pick up. I grabbed a Twinferno for myself, should be here Wednesday.
