    I should be in Toledo for the next few days, so I'll keep an eye out for you and if I see one I'll stash it for you and PM you the location.

    Oh, and BTW DeeJay, clean out your inbox or check your email, please?

    That's the TRU I miss the most. Not very pretty, but they'd get things early or right on time. I picked up Classics Prime and Megatron there weeks before they showed up elsewhere in Ohio.

    made a trip across the river:

    Florence Target: just like all the other Targets, newer stuff, but nothing we haven't seen already.

    Florence Wal-Mart: like the Colerain Wal-Marts, they're in the middle of re-set, so only some of the newer deluxes and generations figures.

    Florence TRU: interesting stuff. they had three MP Grimlocks, a few Animated Arcees and a lone HA Barricade (haven't seen him i awhile). they also had the newer stuff, with only a leader Starscream to make note of... looks like this TRU doesn't get a lot of attention from other hunters due to them having a lot of older stuff that are impossible to find around Cincy stores nowadays.

    for the GI Joe hunters: they had the full line of the POCs, with four HISS tanks (the most i've seen in one place), they also had two Alley Vipers, but i gobbled them up. (Joe fans have a new nightmare: me, and my OCD.) they had quite a few of the Rise Alpha vehicles that i don't see anywhere else that interested me, but i passed on em, and i'm too new to Joe collecting to know if they are hard to get... or even worth purchasing.

    Fort Wayne Wal-Mart had the newer Hunt figures, but were out of Leaders, they looked to not have started their re-set yet. no Joes to speak of though.

    As to say you seen... There are two different Ravages. As for which Prime there is like five Primes out. It would be more helpful to people looking for certain stuff If you could Please be a little bit more clear on which versions of the Figures you see.

    On a side note, Tri-County Target has HA Jazz (did not check to see if its the frosted one.)

    There were MP Grimmys over at the Polaris TRU. I'll probably hit it again tomorrow and let you know if there are still some there.....

    Don't worry, if there are any I'll leave 'em. I'm still content with my Takara one with the BTS crown.

    There weren't any there today. The first group all sold after the 5th, I checked on the 6th. I've checked a few times since then and haven't seen any. Can anyone guess about how many cases each store will get?

    ran in to a fellow tfw'er at the TRU by the Fairfield commons mall in dayton.
    They had a pretty nice selection of all the new stuff save for grimmy, and HA jazz I'm cool with not finding grimmy I've got the Japanese version so its not a big deal.

    I stopped by the walmart over the same mall. almost all the pegs in the tf section are empty. So they'll be resetting soon. I also stopped by the Target in Huber hts. They had a nice restock of all including 2(now 1)HA Jazz
    They also had the target redecos, man those are some hard do eat redecos. I mean the Arcee\NOT Skywarp 2 pack looks pretty ok, but other 2 packs are pretty damn rough to look at

    The Walmart in Grove City still has their exclusives of Skywarp and Ramjet still. They have a little more HFTD & Gens out than the other 3 Walmarts on the W/SW side of Columbus.

    The local Wal-Mart here in Athens has finally done their toy aisle reset. In addition to all the Wave 1 stuff that's pretty much everywhere now, they've got the new Republic Tank SWTF, Captain Rex/Freeco Bike, and Mudslinger w/ Destructicons. (They had a Double Clutch w/ Rallybots, but I still needed one and picked up the only one they had.)

    TRU North Olmsted had 2 Masterpiece Grimlocks. I just can't see myself spending another $70 on a figure I already have from Takara :lol

    I have an extra HA Barricade for sell if anyone would want him. I had order one from TRU thinking i would never ever find one and come across another one recently and im asking $40.00 for him is all, otherwise it will cost me more money to send the one i had ordered back to TRU.com. If your interested let me know. He looks great with HA BB and HA Jazz!! These 3 makes a really great tribute to the first movie! Also, ill be down in the west chester area this coming saturday around 3:00 or so, again just pm me if you want him...

    Saw MP Grimlock at my local TRU. Man, $69.99 that's a punch in the ol' wallet. So I reluctantly passed, hope I don't regret it later on.

    Also saw the "Stealth Force" cars finally in person and they are actually really cool, like M.A.S.K meets TF's.

    Has anyone heard if they will be doing the "buy 1, get 1 half-off" deal any time soon?
