Discussion in 'Transformers Sightings' started by Lance Halberd, Jul 9, 2003.
Fenway Target a couple days ago, don't know if it's still there.
North Adams Walmart has quite the assortment of new stuff!
1x Deluxe Scrapmetal (I bought the other one that was there)
2x Deluxe Shatter
2x Deluxe Cogman
1x Leader Jetfire
1x Leader DotM Megatron
2x Deluxe Prowl
2x Deluxe Ironhide
2x Deluxe Chromia
2x Deluxe Six Gun
I'm not interested in any of these waves (except maybe Cogman) so it's fair game!
No sign of Studio Series Voyager BB Movie Optimus or Rampage, unfortunately, and no WfC Leader Optimus (though I doubt we'll see that here for a while, unlike the ones that have been popping up in the midwest).

The Topics for the next meeting will be (1) Transformers have always been in collaborations with companies and other toy and game properties. In the last few years we have seen some awesome crossover figures. We want to see some. Bring out those crossover figures.

Are the third party figures Masterpiece figures becoming the affordable choice for collectors? Let's talk about it. Check out our other events planned. For 2019 "Until all have one
Been able to find some Titans and POTO cheap at Worcester area WalGreen's and one Family Dollar
Twinferno, Blot, Sinnertwin, Blackwing
I haven't been able to find Studio Series Optimus, or Soundwave anywhere. If anyone on the north shore side sees either somewhere today, would you mind giving me a heads up? Thanks.
Well did a run of some stores today. Comically Speaking in Reading has basically sold off the vast majority of their toys. Not a single SW or Joe remaining, all comic books from now on. Only TF was CW Devastator and POTP Blackwing. Comicazi had some loose stuff but only CHUG was Slug and I picked him up. Nick's Comic Strip and Harrison Comics didn't have much CHUG either to be honest. Slim picking all around I have had more luck at Walgreen's. Hoping I can find a Perceptor or Swoop at one
Peter Cullen and Frank Welker announced for Fan Expo Boston this summer.
FAN EXPO Boston
Walmart in North Reading has the Ravage and Laserbeak Micromasters, as well as the Rescue Patrol. This is the first time I've seen them anywhere.
Also, Target in Somerville has Battlemasters Pteraxodon and whatever the Decepticon repaint is called.
Anyone in western Mass should check out a toy show at the Eastfield Mall in Springfield this Saturday:
Comic and Toy Show
I'll have a table there with a some Transformers toys and comics (as well as a bunch of other stuff).
Wow! Thanks so much for mentioning this. I didn't really want to go out to Vegas for the thing they were at in March. I have been wanting to see them, so I just got tickets for Fan Expo Boston!
By chance, has anyone seen Siege Ultra Magnus anywhere between Worcester/Leominster and Boston?
I'm on the north shore and pretty much every Target I've been to recently has him. I can give you some specific locations, if you want them.
Yes please! I tried Leominster and Framingham Targets and Walmarts but no luck. For folks interested, both Targets had SS Jetfire and the SS Prime he combines with.
Last I checked, there were two Ultra Magnus figures at the Stoneham Target and one, or two at the Woburn location.
Thank you much!
Stoneham Target has one! Thanks again!
No problem. Anything to deplete the stock in the hopes they'll finally put something new out.
Forgot to post it, but I saw a bunch of the new Rescue Patrol Micros at Hadley Target on Monday.
There was another Siege Galaxy Optimus at the Toy Vault in Emerald Square Mall.
