    I'm tempted to get the Devastator set, but it hasn't been in stock on my side of town. I hope the minibots show up soon. Have you applied the stickers yet? I'm debating getting reprolabels and passing on the stickers that come with Starscream.

    Still no sign of Wreck-Gar, but I have seen new stock at Walgreens around me. Hopefully they'll get him soon.

    Guzzle found one the other day. I got one of Chosen Prime months ago so I didn't have to spend time checking every Walgreens near me...

    Stickered him up. Upside down deception symbol style.

    Was my dream toy way back when I was a kid, but Ended up getting a skywarp at a yard sale.

    He’s on my desk at work and I couldn’t be happier...

    Looks like Family Dollar is stocking up on Power of The Prime deluxes and legends figures. They are $17 and $6 respectively.

    Uptown? Target off of Louisiana has Seige in stock, but not out on the floor. I was there while the toys were being restocked, and the guy said that they were not going to be put out on the floor but I told him that there were selling in other places. I saw 1 box of the battlemasters, and 1 box of the micromasters. I wound up getting 1 of each except for Lionizer, just not in to him. I am not sure of the DCPI, but on the reciept 087163981, and 087163983 appears. When I scanned them it came up N/A for Aisle, but the prices did come up. There may still be some left for those interested.

    Oh yeah...Im back in NM now, but Im here in the ABQ. Lord I missed the desert, and I really gotta update my profile.

    Wait, so is Target getting siege first? I'll check the RR Target later, but I thought I read somewhere that Walmart had dibs on putting their stock out before every other place. Can anyone clue me in?

    Target gets a lot of things first. No store really has the right to put things out first, it's just who ever gets them first.

    They aren’t being put on the shelves until the 25th, they’ve been sitting in the back at target. The people I’ve been talking to have been having team members check dpci’s for the figures.

    So I found something lucky!!! First I got 2 Wreck-Gar at the Walgreen's at Montgomery and Juan Tabo. They were the regular price of $17.99. But then I stopped at the Walgreen's on Montgomery and Wyoming. I bought 1 and the guy said $0.93. I thought I might have had more rewards then I thought. Went to my truck and realized it was on a killer clearance price. Ran back in and got the other. At least now I have spares for Junkions. Not sure why it was clearanced here and not at the other store, but double check if you find one at a Walgreen's.

    EDIT: FYI, also saw a sign at Target saying 20% off kid toys Saturday 11-17. It excluded Legos, video games, elf on a shelf, clearance items, and a few other things, but it looks like Transformers are good.

    And quick question, what section would BotBots be in??? Would they be with Transformers or are they in another area like where the pokemon cards are???

    Found the diecast G1 Optimus at Walmart. Saw the movie Prime and BB too. That is the only thing I picked up. Nothing really new out that I've seen.

    Hot Toys is your best bet probably. They're VERY expensive though. 300-400 per figure I believe.
