    I know it's not Iowa, or the Quad Cities. But, I saw some orange DOTM Roadbusters in Kewanee yesterday.

    I just sited a couple each of PCC Undertow and PCC Skyhammer at the Davenport TRU. No sign of Heavytread or Salvage (didn't really look for Salvage) but the pegs were pretty full so there might have been one laying around somewhere.

    Hey guys! Hope everyone had a good holiday.

    I've got an extra Striker Optimus Prime, mint in box, for sale. I ended up with a duplicate that was a gift from BBTS. $150.00 plus shipping (pickup is welcome if you happen to be in the Quad Cities).

    Wow..... is it me or is this one of the worst TF droughts there has ever been? Maybe it's just because I'm chomping at the bit to get my hands on TFP Cliffjumper.

    Still haven't seen an orange cream Roadbuster around my parts. Not really hunting for him but I've been to Walmart quite a bit and just haven't seen one. It's funny because I didn't really want one initially but now the harder it is for me to find the more interested I am becoming.

    If you are willing to take a drive, they've been spotted over in Kewanee, Illinois.

    I've got everything I want except maybe for Junkheap, but I finally got an RTS Wreck-Gar and thats's the only reason I want Junkheap now.

    @ DC: If you really want TB Roadbuster I'd maybe.. begin to possibly.. consider.. thinking about just ordering him as he is an exclusive and it comes out the same price with gas, I did and although he is a better redeco the toy itself is still lame in any color.

    Ehh, I don't mind that mold actually. It looks pretty good and the extra kibble in bot mode isn't too bad. The worst part of it for me is that for some reason it feels cheap. I think it's the kind of paint they used. Still not sure if I really want a TB version or not, it's mainly just the drought making me itchy to buy something new.

    Found all of the RiD deluxes at the TRU in Davenport, IA today at noon! No voyagers yet but I'll be headed to the IL side of the river tonight to look for those. There was at least one of each left.

    I'm stupid excited to get home from work and check these babies out.



    UPDATE:
    Moline TRU has the deluxes as well, at least one of each left.

    All pretty good figures. BB isn't half as bad as a lot of people are saying but he's no where near as good as the FE version. The automorph is neat but does kind of leave his head sticking up a bit. Cliffjumper is very cool but I think Wheeljack is the best of the four. Soundwave is neat but has kinda crappy leg articulation.

    The Waterloo TRU has a few pegs full of Prime - mostly Wheeljack and Bumblebee, but there was a Cliffjumper and Soundwave, too. They also had two voyager Primes and a Megatron. I'm holding out for Cyberverse, so they were all still there when I left.

    I bought the last Cliffjumper the TRU in Moline had Saturday afternoon. Funny thing, didn't realize til I got home that some had tried to steal him.

    Seriously. I could have gone to Des Moines and checked to see if they had RiD Ratchet or Wheeljack, but TFCC wasted my entire morning. I need a fancy phone or something. :/

    I really can't decide if I want the first editions badly enough to order all the expensive Takara versions. I'm torn up between them and Play Arts MGS figures.
    Happened to me with a PS3 controller recently.
