    will do. I try to stop by there at least once a week on lunch break.
    this week might be a bitch though with me being sick and our blizzard on the way. I just hope the roads are still ok when I leave at 2:30 tomorrow.

    they had a stack of those grimstone about 3 weeks back, i wondered where they went! its so annoying how some stores just do insane things that make finding poorly distributed thing even more difficult. i kinda like grimstone PCC but im not thinking of getting him....

    When were these huys spotted here? I think early December? Either way I have been hunting high and low trying to find them. My theory is that all the stores (around Du Page co. at least) ordered an ass load of everything available before x-mas time and did not order newer waves. They stocked up on Pcc Mudslinger, Aerialbots etc. and couldnt move them even at their $10 dollar sale so with a surplus of crap didnt order more. Distribution is f'd west of the city, its usually a 2 week wait then randomly they pop up out here. Really thought I missed these.


    I will add it to my pile of loot and wait to see if the generations Arcee is worth it....sigh, agreed though.

    You know that we post sightings here right? lol!
    Not happy with the "Devastator" head on Steamhammer but overall it looks like its about to deal some serious damage to a foe. Grimstone has a horrible alt mode and sort of looks like a primordial dino pharaoh when combined probably my fav.

    Sightings - 0 If anyone does find the new guys, my best friend needs a Scourge, Kup and Wreckgar so it would be mucho appreciated. Also looks like the G1 Legends are out in Canada eh...

    haha! Man, I'm just playing catch up to all of you guys! Seriously, it's you guys' collections and stuff that make ME wanna' punch myself for not having gotten into serious collecting sooner! LoL.

    I'm months, and even years behind a lot of you guys, so I'm sure most of what I get is "old news" to ya'll, but, I'm still happy to just have the opportunity to purchase a lot of this stuff before they're not being sold anymore, even between collectors.

    This sir, is absolutely correct, lol. Like I was telling you on AiM, I can't wait until I'm at the point where I'm just seeing stuff here and there at the store because I'm current.


    And oh yea guys, with the way things have been going, I don't know WHEN I'm going to start seeing the newer waves, but, I promise if I see 10 of something, I'll buy ten, so that everyone here's straight, and then figure something out with the rest, even if it's just taking them back. I've figured out a new route to work that let's me have access to the post office everyday on the way, so whether people want them shipped, or brought to the meetup, I'd be good.

    ... but, like I said, first I have to start seein' stuff though :(

    my mp-09 still hasn't shipped yet. hopefully today.
    not like it's going anywhere in this blizzard though :lol 
    I'll probably see it next week now, but I'm in no hurry so no big deal.

    work is likely canceled tomorrow. which hopefully means another day of gaming/g1 and recovering from being sick.

    I wish the G1-style legends wave would stop slacking off and get here... It's holding my pile of loot back!

    MIB for less than retail - even after shipping!! Screw you aftermarket prices!! :lol  I need to get the Reprolabels' set for him.

    After preordering gods know how long ago, finally got Prime's axe:
    [​IMG]
    He's all dirtied up (should probably do the axe handle, too), I just need to add some "exposed" silver, and get my hands on some neon paint...
