    Can you recall any of the Studio Series figures that were at these stores? These are all right in my neck of the woods.

    Dropkick, truck Megatron, and the red constructicon are the only ones I remember seeing. But I see those everywhere.

    Man, y'all actually see Siege figures at Meijer still? The two I go to with any regularity are pretty much a wasteland of Cyberverse, SS, and a few Shockwaves and Ultra Magnuses (Magnii?) they couldn't get rid of yet.

    My Rung/Singe set is in my POL, and they should be pretty shortly joined by Frenzy/Ratbat if anyone's still looking for these two. 99% of the Transformers I buy are online anymore anyway, so if anyone feels like skipping the drive this could help.

    The Meijer in Warren has a bunch of Stuff from Siege, but most of it is from Wave 1, including 8 Shockwaves. But they also have Jetfires, Wave 4 Deluxes, and every Battlemaster so far.

    New store called Nerd Out in Oak Park on 9 Mile west of Woodward has some Siege stuff, and a few Titans returns items. Also a handful of G1 figures. Never saw the store before Neon Green building attracted me and then saw old school toys in the window. They had a ton of stuff from Old school TNMT, Starwars, Legends, Black Series, and Mafex. Also they had MAS Toys Optimus Prime on display. He is gigantic, didn't pick him up but he was on sale for 200 bucks.

    not Transformers, but I found a Star Wars Black Series Wedge Antilles figure (number 102 on the side of the box) at Target in Saginaw. TF-wise, even for having a slight sale on, they were still well-stocked with shelf warmers :(

    Does anyone know if the Warren Wal-Mart on 14 and Van Dyke has the 35th display up?

    Saw a Luke and a Yoda in Saginaw the other day.

    Speaking of...all the Luke figures had crooked lightsabers. Does the blade on those detach from the handle? I thought the figures looked cool, but wouldn't want to buy one with a broken lightsaber.

    Not TF related, but Woodhaven Walmart has their exclusive Star Wars Black Series ROTJ Luke and Force Spirit Yoda in a large display near the electronics section, not by the toys where you would imagine it should be. There were several of each after I picked up mine, but the boxes are not perfect. Of course, Brickseek still shows none in stock anywhere around SE Michigan, so don't rely on that source.

    Shelby Township Walmart has the Siege 35th Anniversary Soundblaster and Bluestreak, as well as Cyberverse Warrior class Jetfire and the new Bumblebee with the missile hands.

    By the way, Target is running a "Buy 2, get one free" sale on all Transformers, which is pretty awesome. I got a spark armor Jetfire and Skybyte and got an 8- pack of Botbots free, so If you need to stock up any anything for your collection, it's a good time!

    TRUE! My mistake for not saying. I believe just the usual discount card works

    Brickseek only works for Yoda. Luke doesn't show as in stock. They did go up on Walmart.com last night and are still available. I've only seen them at the Canton Walmart on Ford Rd, but Belleville supposedly has them according to Brickseek.
