    Well I most likely am going to TRS TS tomorrow, but does anyone know if they still have Supreme Starscream, Megs, or Optimus? I know the Alternator situation is still lookin bad, but I'll give it a shot. I figure I'd take advantage of the sale and get one for free. Also, thanks to Cerebros for the heads up on the Marvel Legends Figures.

    Dont bother heading to TRU TS, it was a waste of time. I did get Armorhide from Flatbush Ave TRU.

    Thanks. They want 9.99 at Times Square though. The LIC TRU had them for 7.99 but I could only find the Angel, Black Panther, and Cyclops. The Whitestone TRU had 14!!! Grimlocks and 1 beat up Swerve. It seems the 3 for 2 sale emptied out a lot of stuff.

    Elmhurst Target had 1 Decepticharge and 1 Wheeljack. They still want 21.79 for Alts though.

    Target supposedly has a sale on TFs starting Oct 2.

    Well, from what Giga had said, I decided to go to the TRU in White Plains (Westchester County). And they did have alot of Cybertron first wave stuff. Plus they had a few clearance items from Energon. They did mark up the Starscream, Megatron, and Optimus by 5 bucks tho. I was able to get the figures before the end of the sale. As far as Alternators goes, they only had one Sideswipe, Grimlock, and a Silverstreak. I didn't see any Marvel Legends.

    Side note: I only got a chance to transform Starscream and Megatron so far, but I was curious if anyone else had some difficulty with Megs because of the Unicron Spikes wouldnt stay down, on his other arm: the tip of of spikes that stored his gun seemed to be missing, and his back wheels in vehicle mode didn't seem to lock in well? And I noticed on Optimus, that the wings go near the top of the booster pack, while on others the wheels are near the top...any clue as to which one is correct?
    Anyone else or just me?

    The directions for Cyb OP are wrong. They have the cannons on top. It is just fine to have them that way, if you choose, but for show accuracy, rotate them the other way (cannons under arms).

    How can you tell? Was there a sticker that covered the upc code?

    I didn't get a chance to post this last night but LIC TRU had a Decepticharge and Wheeljack as of last night. They also had one Marvel Legends Black Panther. I only have half a Sentinel. :(

    Congrats on your find, giga!:D 

    So far, I've enjoyed Armorhide and Undermine greatly.

    Haven't picked up Brakedown and some other of the wave 1 basics.

    IMHO there's too many autobots compared to last year's energon!:( 

    And still hunting for Decepticharge and Prowl....

    Thanks Acid Wing. Also I forgot to mention something Image Anime had. For you G1 reissue collectors, they had the E-hobby Orion Pax and Dion set. But you probably already knew that.
