Hey, I guess I can make FrankieCon again ... and bring down the mean age 20 years !
Burnsville TRU still has 3 COV sets, along with a bunch of Skullitron and the stealth bomber Megatron.
Shakopee Target finished reset and I found 3 of the 1:32 scale Metals cars (Op, Bee and Barricade). Still hunting a 1:64 Barricade and the 1:32 Crosshairs. Also all of the larger 1:24 cars. Have those ever been found in MN?
Did they have a good set of the larger movie toys too?
Still only wave 1 deluxes and voyagers. Unless you're still looking for a TR Astrotrain and Alpha Trion, or perhaps a Leader Skywarp?
Haha... If only. Thanks!
How are those lil' 1/64 cars? More importantly, where can you find them?
I like them a lot, but of course I also like Hot Wheels and the die cast TF cars from some years ago too. I've only ever seen the 1:64 at Walmart, but they seem t only get a few at a time and they sell fast.

Man, I'm jonesin for an MP Hoist figure and despite the hit or miss QC of XTransbots, their Paean (aka not-MP Hoist) is looking really tempting. But with the rumors of Takara doing Trailbreaker and Hoist...urgh.
IGH Target had them the other day when I saw the Voltron stuff.
Couple leader Megs at bloomington Target. They also had 1 Soundwave RiD Activator, which came home w/me since I like me some Soundwave.
Nothing else new.
Picked up Voyager Scorn and Nitro at Sartell WM.
At least 5 TLK Voyager Megs and Hounds at Vadnais Heights Wally for those still looking for those.
Man, I gotta say, Voyager size is where it's at for TLK. Scorn, Nitro, and Megatron are great. Optimus and Hound are solid as well. Scorn might be my favorite. People go on about Nitro Zeus, but Scorn's got much better articulation, and they did a great job with the deco as well as a fun transformation. On Nitro, I had to shave down where the leg clips into the torso on one side for jet mode because there isn't enough clearance in the plastic. Still a bear to transform that bit, too. That said, he does look really good. Their alt modes are also sizeable. Scorn's almost as long as AOE Leader Grimlock and looks really cool in dino mode.
Cottage Grove Target has the 1:32 Metals as well, one Barricade and two Bumblebees. Nothing else of note that I noticed.
Not a Transformers sighting but this was sighted in my twitter feed.
Saw that on reddit as well. While ADH is cool, I feel most of the features have been replicated now. Marcus Oakdale is awesome with reserved seats, huge comfy recliners, big aisles, big screen, great (and decently priced) food selection, good service, etc. I'm sure there are others around the Cities as well offering this kind of experience, or at least working their way towards it. The one thing ADH has going for it though is that it sounds like they play some more of the smaller/artsy films as well, if you are into those.
If you happen to find your way to Woodland Park, CO... Scorn and Nitro at Walmart.
I like Paragon in Bville, but then I don't get booze or food at movies. They recliners are better than Marcus though because not all of the Marcus ones have liftable armrests and they don't lean back quite as far. Aside from that, Paragon has sweet Greek mythology scupltures in the lobby. XD
Good, then maybe Marcus will be less packed? I live in Oakdale but I'm actually closer to Woodbury but any chance to be in Woodbury less is always fine with me.
