    So far all the shelf tags have it marked at 59.99 fortunately. Just waiting to see their price on their website in case we have to price match.

    I found Kreon Micro Changers wave 4 at a couple of Walgreens in the Rochester area yesterday. I haven't seen them anywhere else. And I picked up the four new movie Kreon combiners at Henrietta TRU (but they didn't have the new movie blind bags).

    Penfield Target, as of 3:30pm:
    no Cosmos or Swerve out
    2x Rhinox (+ 4x Whirl)
    2x of all 4 wave 1 AoE deluxes

    Plus tons of pretty much everything else AoE. I'm glad none of it is tempting me... saves money for BBTS orders and future Masterpiece releases. (I'll probably pass on Grimlock -- probably -- but I'm looking forward to Prowl whenever he shows up. XD)


    It was awesome to meet you, too! Don't worry, I won't let you forget -- you definitely need to read those comics. ^_~

    Stop in again sometime and say "hello"! I'll remember you if I see you often enough. XD

    Went to all the targets in Commack area. No cosmos or swerve yet but they were putting out some AOE toys ...if you like them. I think this is the worst release I have seen in a long time.

    That's it, the toy itself is identical? Don't need one, then :)

    Sorry I didn't post this yesterday. Stopped into TRU on Wolf Rd. yesterday to see if by chance MP Grimlock was in. Guy at the front counter (guessing he was a manager?) almost wigged out on me. Said he isn't in stock there and they are getting 60 calls a day from people looking for him. I asked if they could check and see if CP TRU had him and he said NO- they don't have him either, no one does. And that the MSRP is supposed to be $99.99 not $59.99 and that's why everyone wants him. I think he was just sick of folks asking for the figure when they don't have it. He said the only way he knows if its coming in is about 12 hours before it arrives (imagine they get a printout of whats on the truck that's on its way). Honestly hope he isn't a board member, cuz he was kind of an a$$hat.

    Also searched local Targets for Cosmos and Swerve (Colonie,CP, Nisky) no joy.

    Don't you love it when people working at a store are DICKS because you are trying to CONSUME their CONSUMER products!!! For F's sake, go back to school if you hate making $7.50 an hour.

    Looked at Commack Long Island stores and no cosmos or swerve anywhere and no Grimlock TRU. Various movie...crap...toys everywhere.

    I thought TRU in NY is trying to sell him at $69.99(from a scan of a member 2 days ago). If TRU NY is selling them for $99.99, then we are TOTALLY screwed big time and There is NO way of US pricematching it to $59.99 cause TRU.com does not even have him listed. awful.just awful thinking abou this.

    TRU TS had restock of wave 1 AOE leaders, no voyager Evasion primes (Grimlocks still there), but most of the wave 1 deluxes except I think Strafe. No Dinobot/Prime/Bumblebee evolution 2-packs seen. Though, they had the newest wave of Kreons (Nightbeat, etc) and those mini-SD non-articulated G1 and Prime figs. No Swerve/Cosmos legends.

    Has anyone in the Capital District seen Swerve and/or Cosmos in the wild? Seems like everyone is getting them in surrounding states/areas.
