    Here you go. Looks like Muskegon, one in Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Lansing, and Traverse City. Some of those could be Babies R Us.

    Toys R Us to close 180 stores across the US

    So much for TRU in central Michigan. That blows. So now I have to drive over an hour if I want an exclusive. They are going to lose a lot of spontaneous purchases if I’m forced to buy online only.

    When did the Lansing store become a BRU? I'm sure I remember that store being a TRU while I was at MSU ('97-'01). I'd occasionally go to the Lansing mall, and would sometimes visit that store while I was there.

    The last transformer I bought there was the redeco of Energon Starscream, the last month it was open. Don’t know what time that would place it at.

    Shelby Twp Walmart (23 and Shelby Pkwy) has a bunch of Chromedomes on clearance, but they're still at 14.92.

    They also had a full load of PotP deluxes and legends, and one PotP Starscream.

    A lot of the Walmarts around me do the same thing as well...you get your hopes up and then have them dashed... I was thinking they may be trying to use some psychology on us to get us to pay full price, "Get 'em now while you still can!!".

    Ann Arbor/Saline Rd Target had 1 each of Optimus and Rodimus today at lunch. They also had 3 Starscreams. Nothing else exciting.

    These PotP figurines are turning out to be dangerous for my wallet...

    Slightly OT but thought I'd let you guys know (if you weren't aware already) that voice actor David Kaye (Megatron in BW, Optimus in TFA, etc.) will be at Macomb Community College on Sat 2/24 for the Great Lakes Comic-Con. Totally going to this!

    As of yesterday Lakeside toys r us had RID Twinferno (Dragon plane, awesome!) in both Deluxe class and Legion class. I picked up one of the legions.
    They also had two POTP Voyager Starscreams, Deluxe Jazz and Dreadwind, as well as all wave one legends and prime masters. The Starscream I got had the corrected wing joint on it.
