    TRU Long Island City as of 1/18:

    CW Devastator x8 ($196.99 each, some boxes have damage due to the anti-theft devices); CW Ultra Magnus x2 ($57.99 each); lastly MP Bluestreak x5 (also $57.99 each). No thanks, the prices are just ridiculous.

    Middletown ToysRUs had a leader class Ultra Magnus in stock. Not much else. A bunch of RID guys but I'm not actively buying that line so I don't really know much about it

    These prices are the sounds of brick and mortar stores dying. Why would I ever pay this when I can get UM for $35/$40 from Amazon or Jet etc? So sad...

    It's definitely a NYC thing, "my" TRU (Rochester NY) is $49.99 for Leaders, and I think Bluestreak was that same price...

    I got excited for about 10 seconds, the Colonie target has been out of voyagers for awhile. They got a restock today and I really thought they were onslaught and scattershot. White prime and MM........the lameness continues.

    Not Transformers related but, the Walmart on Sheridan Drive had the new Absorbing Man wave of figures for those who might be interested.

    Also, picked up the CW G2 Superior at TRU on Sheridan Drive/Niagara Falls Boulevard.

    Nanuet Toy R Us had 4 Ultra Magnus figures. I haven't seen them in my area before so I wanted to let people know.

    The wife is getting it for me for Valentine's day. I'm excited as an Ironhide fanboy but there are a few things it seems like they could have done better. The face being a big one. I also wish they were able to have the "gut" come.down a little lower on his waste to make the torso look more proportional.

    All that said, I'm expecting to be happy with it.

    I agree, the figure could have been better, but I'm hoping once he is in hand it will impress. Plus I'm a sucker for accessories and this guy has a ton.

    Eventually yeah I plan on getting him, but getting the Rachet version. Mainly saving my money for MP Hot Rod and Shockwave.

    Found the same at New Hartford Target. They also had the Wave 5 limbs & Leader Skywarp. Someone wake me when Onslaught shows up on HTS!

    As of 7pm last night, Astor Place Kmart had at least 2 complete set of Briticus limbs (no Onslaughts) for $19.90 apiece. I grabbed a swindle and skedaddled.
