    Target by Aloha Stadium looks like they restocked Prime Deluxes. If you didn't get Rumble, Kup or a Vehicon, now is your chance. Multiples of each.

    Since I'm pretty much done collecting for the forseeable future (not digging Beast Hunters or the upcoming FOC stuff at all) I haven't been out and about much lately. But from what I have seen, other than a few usual shelfwarmers here and there, everyone's been pretty barren throughout most of the holiday season. I did hear through the grapevine that FOC Soundwave/Soundblaster and the disk 2 packs came through TRU about a week or so ago, but never saw anything myself.

    hmmm, I'm done collecting retail stuff probably too. Like you, not getting any of the Beast Hunter or FoC stuff. I did go to TRU during the holiday season for other gift shopping and saw the Transformer section loaded the most I've ever seen for a while. That wasn't the case the other day when I went in to use some Rewards dollars. I saw the disc 2 packs though and bought them since the Rewards $ was expiring that day. Gonna just sell them though, not digging the look at all.

    I'll still try to update you guys if I see stuff.

    i'm surprised that noone's made a Magnum PI Ferrari TF(with the Anderson Estate(Pahonu) as it's base or HQ) or even a TC Helicopter TF(with Makai Research Pier as it's base or HQ)

    this thread be dead!

    If anyone is still finishing up their Prime collections or wanting to build up Vehicon troop, TJ Maxx seems to be the spot. Went on Saturday and I saw 4-5 Vehicons there and lots of other Deluxes. They had Ultra Magnus Cyberverse too, but I think some little kid scooped it. This kid was going to town. He had one of every single Transformer pulled off the peg and asked me to grab him the few he couldn't reach. Was pretty awesome, I wanted to see what his mom's reaction was going to be.

    Was this at the one at Ward? I was at the one in Pearl City on Saturday and didn't see anything on the pegs except some remote controlled car things.

    Yes, Ward. My wife had bought some other stuff when she went there on Friday (voyager Starscream, Kre-o, etc). I told her we had all of them already so we went back Saturday to return. That's when I saw it and she said all of the stuff I listed wasn't there the previous day. So they must re-stock frequently.

    I saw a ton at the Pearl City one during the holidays. It's good to know they both seem to get a lot at times. Just have to get lucky with the timing.

    Somebody must have been monitoring this forum because I went to all the TjMax's on saturday and there was absolutely nothing but a few transformers KREO's. I was hoping to score a voyager Ultra Magnus but oh well. other then that TRU has been stocked full of freakin ROTF deluxes which means either somebody messing up on ordering or that store just has really terrible workers. Which I am leaning towards someone dropped the ball and had the stuff stashed in the back somewhere then someone else found it and put the stuff out. I am really dissapointed with all the FOC deluxes. It's bad enough they are up to $17.99 now but all I have seemed to find lately is a bunch of wave 1 shelfwarmers. I did however probably by some unbeleivable luck scored a FOC star scream and ultra magnus. other then that i've seen a bunch of shockwave shelf warmers. I absolutely HATE HATE HATE the beast hunters crap so don't look like i'll be searching for any of that but hopefully we see more bruticus deluxes out there, I would love to get a set and more recent wave FOC deluxes. other then that GOOD LUCK HUNTING GUYS!!!

    So I was searching on craigslist yesterday and came across Mr. Alan "AL's Toybox" and he had a post for the voyager thundertron and ultra magnus at $40. I mean COMMON!! $40 when we all know he picked them up at Tj Max for $11.99. I totally understand tryin to make SOME money but $40 thats super rediculous! You can get them off amazon or ebay WITH shipping for less then that. Sorry guys but I had to vent that really kinda ticked me off! you have guys here who enjoy going out and hunting for the product like me then you got rediculous people who go raid places probably because they got a hook up and sell the figures for way way to high mark up. Again sorry for the rant guys but I had to get that off my chest.......

    Yeah, all his listings are ridiculous. But I've heard from some people that he'll make a deal if you are willing to buy multiples.

    Toy collector fair at the blaisdell this weekend. I went yesterday and got some scores.....some booths with transformers surprisingly. One booth had FOC voyager blaster but selling for $40. If your looking for kickback or airaid they selling them for cost of $18 which is cool! But they didn't have a lot left. Cool thing is that booth had a lot of stuff voyager FOC grimlock, soundwave, sound blaster, they had all the dark energon transformers prime stuff. Some stuff was overkill on the price but the guys were cool brothas they did work with me on some of the prices which I commend them for. Anyways GOOD LUCK HUNTING GUYS!!!

    TRU Pearlridge had some Beast Hunter Deluxes and Cyberverse stuff. BOGO 50% Transformers too. Looks like they stocked up on other FoC Voyagers, but I saw some dude with all 4 of them in his hands walking the aisles. I couldn't tell which ones he got.

    you can try Toys N Joys. The main one with all the toys is in Waialae. There's a smaller one in the Pearl City area, but I'm not sure if they carry a lot.

    They have a lot of Japanese stuff, but their prices are a bit high. If you're looking for just current stuff, then the usual places like Target, Walmart, etc.

    There are some other collectable shops but they charge stupid prices from what I can recall. There's a guy right now in Waikiki selling a ton of stuff via Craigslist. Mostly G1-G2 stuff. Not sure if he's gotten rid of it all yet

    Huge transformers collection wtt for comics

    What exactly are you looking for?
