    Dude, Outer Limits's been closed for a LONG while now. Like Years long time. Their domain name went dead back in '06. The only other place I knew had old G1 Transfomers was JC comics on 22. But that was also 2-3 years ago.

    Edit. There was a place on Somerville Main street that sold them. Joe's I think. I got a dead mint complete Omega Supreme there for 70. (This was a few years before the Encore reissue) There used to be 2 places in Somerville but one closed. Got a GREAT complete boxed Trypticon there for a good price at the old closed place. Also got a near mint Apeface with head for 20 bucks there too. Now it's a furniture store and the bar part of a resturant

    Outer Limits reopened two years ago on the same street, just a couple units down. I was there last month and that's when they told me they were closing that location, but moving to Secaucus though to combine with another store.

    Wow. I drove past within the last year and didn't see them there. And I was at both locations at times. They moved next to the nail salon. I used see one of the guys who worked there at my old local game store (Dark Tower Games in Denville). He played Raw CCG on Saturdays. What store are they combining with? Do they still have a website?

    You are talking about my friend Rob. He stopped working there about six months before they closed up the first time.

    Their site is: Gundamshop

    Congrats!

    I was at the 5-Below store on Rt. 22 and found some ROTF posters for $5. Let me know if you'd like a picture of the display I took with my phone.

    You got it!

    [​IMG]

    The first was Bumblebee, the second shows Megatron and his Cybertronian tank mode, the third shows the Autobots (Ironhide, Optimus, BB, Ratchet, Sideswipe and the Twins), and the fourth shows the Decepticons (The Fallen, Ravage, and Devastator).

    Perhaps you may also be interested in these other TF items also at 5-Below: keychains (OP and Barricade), an OP binder notebook, reuseable stickers -- all from TFTM. They also had a couple of cute tin lunch boxes with Animated characters, useful for putting accessories, TF instructions, and other little items. Here's a pic of them:

    I saw a few things at the Target in Mt. Laurel today. First off there were 5 sunstorm animated sets @ 50% off on some clearance end caps near the automotive section. There was also one purple shockwave set also for 50% off. I also saw some pretty cool optimus prime water blasters. There were also 2 ultra class onslaught for 50% off as well, but they don't have the siren fix. Pics are included below. Also they reset the isle for Revenge of the Fallen toys.

    Found Voyager Prime, Ironhide, Starscream, Demolisher, and Leader Megatron at Sears Essentials in Lawnside, last night. i passed on everything initially (due to the higher Sears/K-mart prices), but temptation got the best of me, so i went back and snagged Starscream, today. there's a sale, so i saved $1.30 or something like that. Megs was $52, so that can wait until next weekend for Target prices (and my gift card stash, woohoo!), but i gotta tell ya, he's much more impressive in person. i was going to pass on Megs altogether, but he's now pretty high up on my want list.


    i still can't wait to get my hands on Sideswipe...

    Ebay:
    Brick target: Animated voyagers optimus prime, 2 starscreams, 2 bulkheads, 1 megatron, and plenty of lugnuts.
    Brick Walmart: a restock of all waves of animated deluxes Nothing else worth mentioning

    Toms river target: Empty just few animated deluxes
    Toms river walmart: nothing except ROTF mr potato head

    Howell target:Animated Voyagers 2 optimus prime, 2 starscreams, 3 bulkheads, 2 meagatrons, and again plenty of lugnuts.
    Howell walmart:as if this morning animated deluxes of every wave

    Still no animated cliffjumper or dirge in sight

    Worth mentioning though animated leaders are now on clearance at target some $20 to $27 depending on the store. If anybody spots a leader Ultra magnus not "roadbuster" i am willing to meet up for pick up or even pay for shipping Ultra Magnus has been dry in central jersey

But strangely enough we have nothing in the back yet for next saturdays release. im getting a little worried as there is nothing pending and i want my hands on Megs and Demolisher. And Henry Earth, ill keep a look out for Magnus, we had a ton of him in like 3 months ago and i got my hands on one.

    Welcome to the boards! Great to have a friend working in a toy store. Many times I go to Watchung to hunt toys, I live in Newark. I believe Elizabeth TRU will have everything ROTF by saturday considering 2 years ago when I got there and found a whole wall of tf movie toys. They will rip down the Star Trek / Terminator deco for sure.
    Let us know every news on your store buddy, at least 2+ guys here use to visit Watchung.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Yeah, I need to switch up the display to make room too.

    Looks like universe and animated are going to join their brethren in storage

    I found the wave 1 and 2 scout class ROTF figures at a Walgreens in Freehold. They had Dead End, Dirt Boss, Depth Charge, Knockout, and Ransack. Keep an eye out guys!

    PS, they are buy-able.
