    Rosemont Target has one CW Ultra Magnus tonight. A couple Cyclonuseseses too, but almost $27. And a couple CW Mirages and Ironhides.

    Also, I updated my sale thread, some new stuff, would love to deal locally.

    I was trying to get Hot Spot for my birthday last weekend. My TRU in Algonquin would not price match to Target's lower price of $24.99 and allow me to use my TRU 15% off coupon. The manager lady came over and was snarky about it so I said no thanks I'll just go buy it at Target. She was like, "it's either/or, not both." Not one to be made to feel as if I'm in the wrong by asking them to honor their own marketing I fired back and said it shouldn't be an either/or situation, especially when you've inflated your own prices to begin with. So I went to Target and got it for the cheaper price, and when asking, gently asking mind you if they honored competitor coupons, the guy at the register gave me 15% off of their already lower Target price. Eff you Toys R Us. That's customer service. I wouldn't have made a big stink if he didn't do it and I didn't try to trick him or anything. So thank you young gentleman cashier.

    I did! Not gonna lie it's kinda a niche deal. If I wasn't able to be G1 guys I'd probably would've have passed. The graphics and feel of the world is amazing. Might recommend waiting for a slight price drop or buying it used.

    This exactly. Though I've found myself having more fun with the weapons synthesizing than I expected (Wheeljack is my favourite Autobot, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised :)  .) People complain about the short length, but I keep going back and replaying sections over and over and getting the Rare weapons that I only just went through and beat chapter 3 on the medium setting yesterday. I'm not even sure how many more chapters there are, I suspect one or at most two more. Granted, once I have powered everyone up and gotten some crazy level weaponry, I still have the other three harder difficulty settings to play through.

    I love most of platinum's other games but devastation just seems a bit lacking from the reviews. Probably going to hold off for a deep discount on steam or clearance bin for ps4.

    Speaking of video games, anyone else addicted to rocket league? Been playing a bit over a month now and still going strong. Helps to have a good group of friends to play/troll with though, we usually have at least enough for 3v3's if not some 4v4 chaos.

    Not sure what your budget is but most of the Japanese online retailers are offering a preorder discount on the MP22 reissue. After shipping it's quite a bit cheaper than ordering from American retailers, especially with current exchange rates.

    Found a neat place for Vinyl POP and Monster High folks.

    It's called Lloyds Toys, its on Rt. 41 in St. John, IN on the east side of the road.

    I just saw the sign and stuck my head in, seems like a pretty decent guy.

    Hmm, I think I drove past there on our way to my in-laws' house in Lowell, never seen this place. I'll have to keep an eye out.

    Said he's been there a little over a month.

    He's 35 or 36, was cool to BS with, nothing to offer for Transformers though. Has some Star Wars there and is trying to get Lego as well.

    He will also be at the Kane County Toy Show on the 25th.

    Toys R Us on Western has its customary lack of anything new except a bunch of the exclusive Clash of the Transformers Warrior class Megatronus (the one with the battle mask). They have a "promo" going on that brings the price down from their price, $17, to everyone else's price, $15. Also, it coincidentally turned out to be a LEGO event day, so we got a free LEGO kayak set and activity book.

    I don't suppose anyone still needs an MP Bluestreak, but Niles TRU had one as of Saturday night.

    Glenview Target has some CW UMs, too, as well as one of each Megatron.

    Yes!!! I can't wait. It just has that original Star Wars feel to it. I hope it's incredible. I have anxiety over this Han Solo death rumor tho. Harrison Ford has publicly stated he doesn't really care for Star Wars, but I am hoping he sticks around for the full trilogy!

    My TRU has at least 10 MP Bluestreaks.

    Seriously, keep the Star Wars spoilers out of this forum. Some people don't watch trailers for a reason.
