    Hell I haven't even seen Decepticharge at a normal store yet. I'm not sure if either of them have been truly released to regular retailers, it seems like everyone who has one has ordered them online.

    I know Zapp Comics in Freehold Mall has a Decepticharge for $39.99. I still think it's too soon for Prowl.

    Friend picked up Armorhide for me from Piscataway's Walmart. Also, Masuya from epopy.com came thru for me and I got a Red Exillion!

    entertainment earth is showing decpticharge and prowl as coming in the same wave shipment- which seems likely- swerve has been fairly easy to find, which was nice- perhaps we will see the same with the newer ones. i nabbed decepticharge online to avoid the aggravation, and a blue prowl online just because we wouldn't get an alt in blue-- keeping my eyes open for prowl.

    Not really a siting, but I went to Last Century toys in Manasquan and this guys gots lots of vintage G1 stuff (American and Japanese.) I got a Ravage and Buzzsaw for $15 each. Also had a loose MP Prime (Japanese) for $75 mint which was tempting. Also had some GI Joe and video game systems as well. It's B/S/T so if you got any thing for him, take it down there. He is also gonna carry Binaltechs and Japanese re-issues. You can actually pre-order your Galvatron from him and pick it up there!

    That place sounds pretty cool, can you PM the address? Dunno when I'll be able to get down there but it sounds worth a trip. How're the prices on the Takara reissues?

    The alts at Target Middletown finally sold. Still have a Dark Scorpy though, but no sign of Leobreaker's case yet.

    I'd like a PM of the address for Last Century as well. Is it a new place? I used to live in Manasquan and have never heard of it. Good find!

    Fruitless hunt this morning. Walmart Neptune has one of those display pallets, though it's been thoroughly ransacked. Wave 2 basics (and maybe deluxes, I forget) were the newest things. Same at TRU Eatentown.

    TRU on Hamburg Tpk in Wayne had 1 Dark Scorponok and 3 Red Alerts as of last night.

    Also, for anyone looking, they had one of each of the new GI Joe Sigma Six figures.

    Well, found out that place is about 50 miles from me (ugh, gas prices...)... but I found it, and it looked like it had a lot of good stuff! Well, from what I could see through the windows. They didn't open on time. :p  So that was a hundred-mile drive with nothing to show. :(  But I plan to go back another time.

    I wish I checked the board and saw your message. I've only been there once, but the guy didn't open on time on that day either. Warning to anyone going. The outlet mall it's in opens at 10, but I don't think he opens until 11 or so. Lots of cool stuff, though it looks like it might be painful on the wallet. :)

    Pricewise he's very reasonable and less than the guy from Groove Spot in Red Bank (which closed down) The day I went he sold a MIB Trypticon for $150. The box was C6 but Tryps was mint and complete. He has a loose and boxed set of Star Saber and Victory Leo as well as a loose Black Zarak (I think he wanted $225 for it) a loose MP Convoy complete for $75, a pre Transformer Omega Supreme MIB and just too many things to list. He told me he's gonna stock the upcoming takara reissues Star Convoy, Galvatron (25 reissues) and Binaltechs too. I picked up a loose Ravage and Buzzsaw complete with weapons and tight joints both for $30. He's got a HUGE inventory of pieces and weapons too. It's definately worth going (when hes opened) The first time I went he was closed, but I emailed him and told him what happened so just email him ahead of time and he'll be prepared. Again, definately worth the visit and alot of goodies for everyone. Here's his email: webmaster@lastcentury.net

    I stopped at TRU eatentown this morning hoping to take advantage of that sale this week. Not a damn thing of interest. And still nothing new at Target Middletown either.

    The sign said 12:00 when I was there. So maybe early-mid afternoon would be your best bet?
