    I know I said it before, but I really like this shockwave. It might be my favorite version of the character besides hearts of steel. I might buy another to make an SG version.

    I've never seen them around here in the Springfield area. I just saw and bought Freezer last week. It was the first time I saw him and it was the only one there.

    Never personally saw them at Kirkwood Target or Walmart, even went up to Seattle over Christmas in December and the 2 Walmarts I hit didn’t have them. Wish I could’ve known they were at T&C, should’ve gone by to check.

    I only saw one Freezer previously last year at Kirkwood Walmart and never again, only just now started seeing them because they’ve sent the wave out again.

    If anyone is still hunting Ross the MOTU Origins wave including Snake Hunter Man-at-arms, Squeeze, Spikor, and Snake Man Infiltrator are starting to show up. I have not seen any myself but I am on the lookout if anyone can help me out.

    Happy Thursday TFW! DOCT here with some inventory updates!

    Wave 9 made an impact on here and in our store!

    Chromia, Shard, and Gears have rolled out of our store and onto the shelves of some awesome collectors!

    (We still have Bumblee from the animated universe!)

    In addition, since we received our Autobots Stand United 5-pack, they've been flying off our shelves. We are now down to our LAST ONE!

    Don't forget, if you're local to the area, you can purchase items on our site and select the local pickup option, that way you've secured your item and can swing by during store hours whenever you're free.

    We do plan on bringing it to the ToyMan Show this upcoming Sunday, so if you don't get a moment to stop by the store this weekend, you'll see it there!

    Thanks for making our store a popular destination for Transformers fans of all ages! We appreciate your support and business!

    As always, the moment we get new info on exciting items making their way to the store, we'll let you know on here and our IG!

    Stay awesome and take care!

    - DOCT

    So it's been about 9-10 years since I went to the Toyman show, and I was there to check out the comics, didn't pay a lot of attention to the toys. I'm hoping to go to the one on Sunday, how are they usually on vintage G1 and GI Joes? I know that can obviously vary from show to show and dealer to dealer, but I'm hoping to fill in some gaps in my vintage collection.

    I can't tell you that there's a smörgåsbord of G1. But I can tell you that there are a handful of dealers that consistently come with G1 and other older figures. Unless it's a significant inconvenience for you to get to the show, it's definitely worth stopping by at least once a year or so.

    As for Joes, they're completely off my radar so I'm of no help to you there. But I hope there's a lot for you!

    Heads up for any lucky ducks who find Shockwave at Target- crossing my fingers I'll be able to track him down before the sale ends.

    Weekend Sightings (05/04-05/05)
    • Saturday - St. Charles, MO Wal-Mart (Veterans Memorial Parkway): Found 1 Studio Series Shockwave and put him behind the 6 or 7 Gamer Edition Screamers
    • Sunday - St. Charles, MO Target (St. Charles Rock Road): Found 2 SS86 Snarl and 2 SS86 Optimus Primal
    Surprise of the Weekend! - Went to Toyman and found a legit/non-KO MP-36 Masterpiece Megatron and scored it for retail. Pretty happy with the results even if one of the arms is a little loose. Now to sell more toys to make up for the blow to my Botcon budget.

    This one’s a longshot, but worth asking. Does anyone have a TR Fort Max sticker sheet that they’d be willing to part with for a reasonable price? I’m in the need for one, and but not enough to pay the $50+ for a whole Toyhax replacement sticker set. Hoping someone who made that investment doesn’t need their default stickers.

    Alternatively, if you’re getting the reissue and plan to go Toyhax, I’d gladly pay you today for a default sticker sheet tomorrow.
