    I've been out of the game for a while. Are these siege figures still on sale/clearance? I've seen some posts in FB but haven't paid close attention. I'm on Long Island.

    Forbidden Planet near Union Square in Manhattan had a ton of stuff as of earlier this evening. I remember seeing:

    PotP - Optimus Primal and some random deluxes

    Siege - Optimus Prime, Cog, Sideswipe, Skytread, Roadhandler/Swindler, Topshot/Flak, and Laserbeak/Ravage

    Studio Series - Thundercracker, Piece of Crap Bumblebee, Army Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Barricade, Tin Foil Tank Megatron, Bumblebee with Charlie and Random Car Parts, Red Bulldozer Constructicon Guy, Bonecrusher, Jetfire, "Mad Max Beyond" Megatron, and Cybertronian Earth Truck Optimus Prime

    There were multiples of everything except the last four Studio Series figures mentioned above — of which there were only one apiece.

    I'm afraid not, but I'll be sure to keep an eye out.

    Hey there everyone. So I'm a florida native, but we're heading to new york next week. Are there any big shops I should be on the lookout for while we're in the city? I'm definitely hoping a comic shop has Studio Series 38 prime, but that's a long shot. Anyway, any suggestions would be welcome!

    Not a lot of choices in NYC...
    Forbidden Planet at Union Square might be your best shot.

    You can also try Image Anime but they then to be a bit pricy.

    You two could also try Think Geek off of 34th and Midtown Comics off of 40th. They both stock Studio Series figs. Though Forbidden Planet does seem to get TFs sooner than everyone else.

    if you're a comic fan, Midtown Comics is great. I used to work a few blocks away from there, so I would go there every wednesday for new comics on my lunch 20 minutes (yes I only got 20 minutes for lunch).
