    How many do they have? Trying to decide if a trip up after work is worth it.

    I assume they're charging more than MSRP?

    They had 2 sets of each and were $11.99 a pop.

    Well, that's not terrible. I wonder if we'll see them any time soon in stores considering they are clogging ALL The pegs right now.

    Eh, the Primemasters all found their way to retail just fine. And those *always* seemed to just be chilling on pegs.

    Fair point. XD

    Also: Barricade and Sideswipe are great. Barricade's legs seem even stumpy for Barricade, and both are a bit finicky when it comes to the transformation, but they're both fun and--dare I say it--complex. I think they could have integrated Barricade's weapon better in bot mode (frankly, I like his giant alt-mode weed-whacker) and both could have benefited from some ankle tilt, but I dig 'em! Now I'll just keep my fingers crossed to see voyagers and leaders.

    I'm guessing the Richfield Hot Comics there.

    I haven't been to Hot Comics in almost a month now due to the weather. Today we used a roof rake to clear the ever increasing amount of snow on top of the house. Was fun.

    Yo, I feel like a jerk, but I just picked up the last Siege tapes set from Hot Comics. Was hoping I could leave one behind. Still one Micromasters set though.

    Just so no one wastes a trip.

    lol, don't worry about it, man. Saving me a trip on these garbage roads means a lot more to me than MAYBE getting the tapes a little early. XD I'm more on the hunt for Jetfire/OP right now anyhow. I just love all things Soundwave so I tend to get a little over-excited any time there's new stuff.

    Ugh... the things about home ownership I don't realize until after it's probably a problem.

    Yeah, my Dad was worried if we get dumped on anymore with how much snow is already on the roof, that it'd be bad.

    Years ago we had some really bad ice storms that didn't do the house any favors.

    Has anyone sold to TF Source lately? Thoughts? I'd probably be looking for store credit.

    Didn't realize they bought stuff, but I guess it makes sense. Do they allow you to go there and drop off? I know they are up in Forest Lake so it is pretty close.

    Well they started in Forest Lake I believe but they've open a warehouse/distribution center in Vegas now as well. Did they move HQ out there too?

    I can't find an address on their website, but their Amazon seller page says their warehouse is in Henderson, NV, and their headquarters is in Vegas.

    Where does one even buy a roof rake? I'm looking around the neighborhood and don't see anyone else doing it...is it only if you live under a fairly flat roof?

    Anyone here interested in my DX9 Dutch? I ordered the Hot Soldiers one and don't need 2 legends size Optimii. He does have the fixed hip joints as well.
