    As of noon, Southgate TRU had one MP Grimlock. I was astonished. There was also one MP Prowl.

    I never saw MP Grimlock there when he was the most recent MP release, let alone now after Prowl and Sunstorm came around.

    The K-Mart in Port Huron has a few Tankors and Rattraps; I head to Port Huron every week for band practice so if someone needs one we can hash something out.

    Also, does anyone still need FoC Blaster's data discs? The Meijer in Taylor refreshed their toy section a bit and suddenly have a ton of them.

    Not at all. I like Hound because it's a legitimately good toy and comically over-armed. I got the Takara Lockdown thinking it would have a sweet paint job (it does not, and it is a mediocre toy, at best). I will probably break down at some point and get EMOP. That's it though. I think the elf boot dinobots suck ass, and Crosshairs and Drift are way to cheaply made and under painted.

    The AoE toy line has saved me a bunch of money.

    Agreed! Those old ROTF / HFTD / GENERATIONS / RTS lines were right in my sweet spot. I loved the complexity and intricacy, the plethora of paint apps, and the thick beefy plastic on a lot of those old toys.

    Just so short and honestly ugly to me. Very ugly. I feel it doesn't really fit in with any of my other tf's asthetic and I mainly just have generations/universe figures. But I will say the bot mode has grown on me

    If you're a fan of the IDW comics then it fits in pretty well. Fat Tankor rules!

    Southgate TRU has a couple of the Optimus Prime Evolution 2 packs left for $44.99. I picked one up just because I still haven't pulled the trigger to buy the AoE evasion mode OP and I still have a huge collection of Classics OP mold, so I had to get this one. I really wish he had blue windows, but that's nothing a little transparent blue paint can't fix.

    14 and John R Target has 2x Drift and Strafe, and a Slash and Slug for anybody looking for em. No new voyagers tho.

    Anybody seen Sludge around (or picked him up and have any thoughts on him)?

    I popped into TRU in Okemos yesterday. wow. Guess they are Turtles R Us now. TMNT now has an entire row and an end cap! Everything got shuffled around, the only new TF's were Rattrap and Tankor. They also had a couple deluxe Drifts & Lockdowns.

    That seems to be how every store is right now. Meijer has a 3rd of the action figure section devoted to TMNT and target has half of an isle and and end for them. (at least by me).

    Traverse City Wal-mart has all their exclusives out and the TRU has 3 MP Sunstorms if anyone is looking still. While I was at walmart I saw a box on a cart of what should be Galvatron & Hound so maybe they will be out in a day or two

    Target on Carpenter Rd. in Ann Arbor/Pittsfield had two of the Silver Knight Optimus Primes. But at $59.99 each, for me it was an easy pass.
