    Thrust finally shipped from HTS, so I'm out of the running on him for the time being. I also received notification that P/CP shipped out. Sounds like it's going to be a good week for TFs! :D

    Anyone attempting to head out to Bloomington from north of Minnehaha, be aware of a bicycle marathon going down Minnehaha. I tried getting across from Cedar all the way down to Bryant and it's all blocked off - no getting across. Not sure how long it goes for, but as of 10:00 things were still fudged. On top of the road being blocked, there are a lot of confused and PO'd drivers tearing around and doing middle-of-street U-turns so be on your toes.

    ::EDIT::

    It's the Lifetime Fitness triathlon and it goes from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    Alright, I'm dropping out of the hunt for Drift. The Toys R Us stores are too spread out in this city and I'm sick of wasting gas money on a daily basis to check them (plus I feel weird about seeing the same store employees every day but not buying anything). Drift is available on Hasbro Toy Shop right now and I ordered it. He's about twelve bucks plus shipping. My total came out to be nineteen bucks and change. I figure it's worth it not to waste gas money anymore hunting for the guy. Especially when competition for such an in-demand new figure is still so high.

    After the whole Arcee thing, I've kind of given up actively hunting for the newest figs. I think that once Target and WalMart get on board we will be seeing the Drifts and Thrusts on a more widespread scale.

    I never really concern myself with searching like a madman for new Transformers or G.I.Joe stuff as it shows up eventually everywhere, making it easy to get what you want...unlike say, DC Universe Classics. >_O

    I typically don't go too out of my way to hunt. I usually just check Target and Walmart as I go for other needs. I hate TRU exclusives! There aren't any all that close to me or near things I do regularly that I can just stop in so it's usually an intentional trip and a waste of an hour or so (and over a gallon of gas) when you come home empty handed.

    Anyone know how to get ahold of MrGone outside of the boards? Apparently he's been banned, and I spotted a fig he's looking for...

    What is up with all these people getting banned? I think that someone out there really likes to use the "Ban" button. Hopefully I will not get banned talking about the ban button.

    Glad you like your Unicron and little BK guys. Something to add to your collection. Oh and Predators was funny as hell!
