    Thanks, I'm trying. Having been able to buy outright in a store, a character I missed all those years ago was pretty gratifying.

    Received TFCon exclusive Sphinx yesterday for my birthday. Also found Wheelie, Rewind, and Sentinel Prime at Rosemont Target. Being that it was sunny, hot, and no clouds, it was definitely a perfect day!

    Yep. (I'm assuming no one bought him since I took that photo a few days ago, cause stock has been slow on these TR toys).

    Walmart on Farnsworth (aurora) has no transformers period save a mis-shelved sentinel prime, open box, no head.

    The PMOP that I saw had the head. It was behind two Skywarps.

    Was going to get SDCC Max but apparently I am the Fort Max magnet of greater Chicago. Found 2 more at TRU in Downers Grove. One is coming home with me, if I can get through the the 1 line for checkout/customer service/returns...

    I used 10% off and got the SDCC one, I think it was 185ish after shipping and tax. Definitely more expensive than the retail version, though I wanted the sword and I think the deco looks really nice. I would get the Takara version but I'm not a fan of Cerebros. Either way, it looks like everyone should be able to get the version they want with little difficulty.

    yeah I thought the sdcc would be gone like crazy so I just opted for the regular retail release. $185 all in is pretty good considering I opted for the PE sword on top of max.

    the PE sword is a bit nicer than the SDCC max one though. some nice hefty diecast in there and I like the molded detail more.

    Palatine target had the first wave of titan masters last weekend to nabbed a set of those. They are a lot of fun attached to max.

    Checked the Streator Wal-Mart for TM Prime, but it looks like they completely re-stocked the first wave Deluxes and Voyagers instead.
