    Surprised we haven't had any Siege wave 3 Deluxe sightings yet.

    I'm guessing we won't be seeing Jetfire or Omega Supreme in retail stores when they come out.

    That's alright thank you though. I'll just go a different route for them.

    Well, either way, they did have a couple of the 5-packs with Overpack in them at Edina target. No singles at all tho.

    Yeah, it's not bad. Just a little out of my way at this point now that I'm in Bloomington. @T-Hybrid tends to hit it, though.
    I suppose I should add to that: Siege wave 2 deluxes and one Seige starscream at AV Target off Cedar. XD

    It's going to be fun when we start seeing Starscreams in stores and have to figure out if it's because Springer came through town or if it's leftovers from Wave 2.

    Another reason I hate repacks.

    Hey folks, just popping for a minute.

    Firstly, what’s the skinny on the Piranacon that’s pictured a few pages back?

    Secondly, regarding the TCG, I see a third series is coming out soon, I’m more interested in have a full set than actually playing. And i’m At a point that buying packs is maybe getting me one or two cards that I don’t already have. Are there any trade/play deals arranged already, or are you doing it on a person to person basis?

    Thirdly, i’m Going through some of my loose stuff that I’m going to sell off, older marvel legends, maybe some BW era Transformers. If there’s interest I can take pictures of what I’m unloading.

    There is a Twin Cities FB group for the TCG - a lot of the activity seems to be centered around the Gaming Goat in Eagan. Otherwise if you want to send me a list of what you still need I'll see if I have any of it available.

    good luck!

    Takara is doing the Seacons (presumably all 6) in the CW style. We've known about Snaptrap for at least a month, but Skalor was new.

    They're labeled as "Generations Select," meaning they're special TakaraTomy Mail figures (similar to the UW/Legends "EX" figures of old and the Star Convoy from PotP Prime we saw a few months back.) Yen/Dollar conversion puts Snaptrap around $60 and Skalor around $35. We don't know 100% if these will be sold in the states, but since Hasbro has already listed Star Convoy on Plus, the presumption is this will hold true for the Seacons.

    Hello guys,
    I have a few items for sale if anyone’s interested.....I have it listed on eBay but can cancel the listing if someone here is interested, you can see photos of these guys there as there are a lot of photos,
    So selling
    The infamous DX9 Dutch X34, X34W, X34B, all items complete including the boxes, only transformed into bot mode then displayed.
    Dutch has reprolables kit applied and has had the hips replaced although I never really check to see if he needed them I just replaced them.
    X34B is great with no issues has
    X34W has a hip issue but I didn’t get any hip replacements for him, somehow I thought he wouldn’t have the known hip issue since he came out later than regular Dutch. $38 each or all 3 ( preferably) for $95

    My wife and I have a tradition for our anniversary: she gets a nice meal, I get to go to Toys R' Us. Of course that's obviously not happening this year... until she was like "So there's a Toys R' Us in Thunder Bay..."
    So I'm going to Thunder Bay next week for my anniversary. XD
    Anyway, reason I bring this up is since we live in MN and I know a lot of people prolly know more about Duluth/Thunder Bay than I do - anyone know of any good toy shops on the way?

    Really hoping I can snag some BotBots Bakery Bytes up there since I dunno if we'll see 'em in the US.
