    Sideswipe is in Oregon!

    There were 2 when I got to the Tanisbourne Target and myself and another person bought them both. But they are here!

    How is it? Is it different enough from the previous version to warrant double-dipping?

    I found ROTF Sideswipe yesterday as well, at Jantzen Beach Target. They had three; two were left as of around 4PM.

    As an avid collector of Studio Series, I can heartily recommend both Sideswipes for different reasons, but ROTF Sideswipe is definitely superior IMO. Two main factors: superior robot mode deco, better weapon storage. The deco speaks for itself, really. All that added silver in bot mode really makes him pop. And the new spot for his gun storage is much more intuitive; you can just leave them there between modes instead of having to partsform them like on DOTM Swipe. They also added slots on his wings where you can store the swords in bot mode, which DOTM Swipe couldn’t do at all and I haven’t seen anyone else mention.

    If you’re like me and want the full cast of every movie, definitely get both. They have some unique transformation steps resulting in different alt modes, and pretty unique looks in bot mode too due to their deco differences. Having said that, if you’re only interested in having the best version of a mold, get ROTF. Easy.

    No Transformers, but Mall 205 Target has the new Hasbro Fortnite 6” figures if anyone was looking.

    Thanks for the tip! I got the last Sideswipe at Jantzen Beach Target. A Blurr, Kup, and 2 Grindor left on the end cap across from the video games.

    All the Walmarts I hit yesterday from Woodburn to Albany were stacked with vintage Beast Wars reissues. Tons of every character.

    I really need that Zartan that's going up on Pulse this weekend, but I'm going to be camping....If anyone is willing to snag one for me, please do so.
    In the event that more than one person is able to purchase one for me, that is ok, I will make sure you are reimbursed, - I just don't want to miss it...

    If you want to just skip the hunt, he’s on Amazon right now for retail. For next day shipping for Prime members.

    I highly recommend him, awesome figure.

    Tanasborurne had some Tracks and one Shadow Panther left after I took one.

    Would anyone here be interested in a complete SS Devastator or a Combiner Wars one? I'm trying to get rid of both and really don't want to take the trouble trying to ship these giants

    Just saw on a discord I’m in that Clackamas Target has T-Wrecks on clearance for 26.49. Not sure if it’s still there but figured I’d pass it along.

    Just asking this again because I know there has to be some fellow Oregonian collectors but if I were to sell some MP like figures would anyone be interested? Some of them are Black Apple Thunder Leader, Transform Element Freedom Leader, Transcraft Beetle and a MPM KO Megatron
