    An actual sighting: Big Lots in Lakeland had at least 2 of all 6 Micromaster Aerialbots. I already have mine, but they're a pretty good set if you're into them. Of course, I suppose everyone's more interested in movie toys these days. In which case, Lakeland Kohls had Deluxe Barricade and Brawl!!!!!

    -Tony!
    Thinks Kohls probably broke street date, but doesn't think anyone noticed.

    Since '08' Bumblebee and purple Arcee are scheduled to come out in mid July, I'm thinking it will be out then. I haven't heard of anyone finding it let alone seeing it in a store yet. I think they're doing the Prime in Wave 1, Megs in Wave 2. Notice "Vanilla Ice Voyager Megs isn't even out, yet Robo Prime and Leader Prime are.

    Get well Silvio. The E Street Band is nothing without you (Or Bruce).

    When Bobby got whacked, I was pissed.

    And I'm still pissed that Paulie's alive.

    I found two leader class Megatrons yesterday morning at the Target at parkside mall in Pinellas. I picked one up for a friend and left the other.

    Still not sold on movie Megatron quite yet. I'll have to wait and see.

    So Flux Convoy did you pick up Leader Class Prime? Gotta be one of my fav Primes ever.

    Is it me or are there any Leader class figs at any Walmart? I was at the WM on 434 & 436. They had 2 middle aisle displays of stuff and their regular section of it. I saw voyagers, Real Gear, Cyberstompers, FABS, etc...but no Leaders.

    That's the 2nd WM that I've gone to that I ....nevermind. I saw someone walk out with a leader prime.

    Soprano theories:

    - Paulie kills Tony (Paulie really doesn't have any beef with Phil)
    - Tony takes over NY mob
    - Furio from Italy comes back, whacks Tony, and takes Carmella
    - Tony dreamed the entire series and really is a salesman (Remember the coma?).
    - Uncle Junior is really not crazy and contracted those 4 guys doing all of those random hits proving that he really is the NJ boss.



    ...ok, back to transformers talk.

    There weren't any leader class guys at my over here Walmart either. They also didn't have any Starscreams, but the hey Scorponoks and Target didn't. Target had Leader Class Optimus but they didn't have Leader Class Megatron.

    I'd get the armor, but there's no Ultra Magnus.

    Looks slick. I had heard about these some time ago but I didn't realize they were G1. I thought they would be from the movie. Can't wait to get those for my DS, although it is going to be tough deciding on which one to use first.

    Yup, I got him and Robo-Vision Prime. I need to see the Voyager to decide which version to keep. The Leader is pretty cool though. He's big and imposing. Not sure I love the transformation, it's pretty fiddly. I like it best when things click into place. Eh, minor gripes really. He's nice.

    Heck I haven't transformed my Leader Class Prime yet and doubt I will. I got him in a great pose and don't want to mess it up. Last time I did that was with MP Megatron and never got him to stand just the way I wanted him to again.

    I did get the Robo Prime yesterday at the Target on Gandy. I like him. Not as impressive as the leader Prime but a nice Prime to play around with.

    Oh I also picked up Longview, one of the Realgear Bots, and have to say he is pretty darn slick.

    I was at Casselberry WM this morning getting lunch for today. Lots of movie toys but no Megs. They also pulled out their FF2 toys (Torch looks NICE. They have him on full "Flame on Mode and it's more of a clear fig!!!!!!)

    Speaking of Robo Prime, was browsing on BBTS last night and checking the status of my credited orders (I still have $31 in credit left for Arcee and '08' BB). They're selling it for the price of the Target sale price for Leader Prime. They're selling Leader Prime for the price of Primus/Unicron.

    I did I miss the price hike somewhere? I still like them, but dang!!!!

    Yeah BBTS's prices do tend to go up a bit depending on what kind of stock they get in. If I get anything online I always go through them because I know I can trust them without a doubt to make me happy if something goes wrong.
