    Nothing at Bville Target. TRU is done for TF's it seems.

    Took Inferno back to Eagan Walmart. Someone was feeling generous as three of the four Grimlock that were there a few days ago are now gone.

    No other Infernos besides the one I took back.

    Picked up a Studio Series Brawl at the Downtown MPLS Target this morning. Only one.
    They also had SS Megatron but I left him and his atrophied gimp arm on the shelf.

    Don't know yet, I'll either check him out on break or after work.
    Yeah, ROTF Megs is even worse. Honestly the only movie megs I've liked are the DOTM truck version and the TLK jet version.

    Unfortunately, no. The two SS figures I mentioned were the only new things I saw.

    Just cracked him open. First impression is that it would be a great toy if someone does a KO with improvements. As it is...eh, it’s OK. Better than the Deluxe. Haven’t transmorphed it yet.

    Same here. I think DotM voyager megatron is one of the best megs ever and I wish there was an upscaled KO of him.

    Word. I've really digged on SS so far (outside of most of the deluxes) so I'll probably still grab him and megs if I see him.

    Having spent more time with Brawl and transforming him, I like him more now. I wouldn't say he's Starscream good or even Optimus good, but he's worth a get I think.
    It could use some improvements, but couldn't they all? :lol

    Damn, TFSource blowing out Quantron for $140... *almost* makes me want to grab one. Almost.

    I actually really like that guy. Still have mine on my combiner shelf. Dat bow doe.

    Also, T-hybrid pointed out that SS Brawl and Megs are on HTS. Also, it's 20% off with the code FAMILY FIRST, but that does drop you below free shipping (so it ends up being about $60 after tax anyhow, but still cheaper than in stores). I threw the optimus prime fidget cube on my order and that actually bumped me back over the shipping limit and ended up saving me about one more dollar AND now I have a... fidget cube. XD

    Man, MP BW Megs looks great. Too bad he, like Dinobot, will probably be over $200.

    Yeah, I'm trying to avoid buying the Beast Wars MPs, but it's getting harder and harder to resist. I have to wonder if they'd go into 'Season 2 and 3' characters with the line. Imagine how big an MP Beast Wars Rampage or Depth Charge would be. o_O

    Man I would momentarily consider paying $250 for a MP Depth Charge.

    My breaking point would be MP Ravage/X9.
