    Not me, but that's because Wave 2 doesn't seem to be moving at least in my area. I thought for sure at least Drift would sell...

    I was actually just looking for Drift last week too. Speaking of which, anyone still trying to get Quickslinger/Slingshot & Brake-Neck/Wildrider?

    I found them in-stock at Kmart.com of all places, and with free shipping to boot.

    Quickslinger

    Brake-Neck

    Toy show in downtown Vancouver tomorrow. I cut and paste the information, it should be right off the highway:

    Vanc. WA 98663 Address 1009 E. McLoughlin Blvd. Vancouver WA, 98683
    Phone 360 513 4828
    Early Bird 8am $6
    Gen. Admission 9am $3

    It's mostly vintage toys and they are opening the door to people who want to sell newer stuff apparently. I'll probably swing by and check it out... I'm not expecting a lot, really, but who knows maybe I'll find something interesting. Unfortunately, it's my experience that most conventions are people who want top dollar for low quality goods so I'm keeping expectations low.

    For anyone that is interested I am going to be hosting a Meetup at my house in portland on July 11th, potluck, and their will be people bringing stuff to buy, trade, or just show off.

    Also no longer need the Air raid.

    I will miss out on TFcon Canada due to the air show, which is the same weekend. Hopefully you have fun up there.

    I skipped this completely (if anyone went, I'm interested to hear how it was!) -- I felt if you put all the local "buyers" in one place and occupied their time, it would be the best time to go hunting for harder to find figures. I know plenty of people take Saturday morning to scavenge every store when they open.

    My hunch paid off and I found the new wave of Star Wars Black at Cascade Target. Grabbed Palaptine and Clone Trooper Captain.

    Anyone here interested in taking this lot of off my hands for $50? Waspinator and Buzzclaw are missing some things. Everything else is complete and unbroken. Ill even throw in some extras not seen here in the pic. Got some brand new Star Wars figures to add in.

    Did anyone make it to the Starlight Parade this past weekend?
    The Daimler Optimus Prime truck was there, but the event listing said the Galvatron truck was there too, but I can't find any pics to confirm this.

    I missed the Starlight parade again. Both trucks were developed in Oregon. My neighbor helped to design them

    Also:

    The Loyal Subjects Transformers Wave 3 vinyl blind boxes are at Hot Topic in the Portland area, and they are currently B1G1 50% off.

    I've also been told they will show up at TFAW this week as well.

    I bought a few, the quality is a little bit better than past series, though the new gimmick is stupid -- snap on chest plates. Why can't they just do normal vinyl figures without a gimmick is beyond me.

    Also if you're into Blizzard or Heroes of the Storm, the Funko vinyl figures are Hot Topic as well. I completely cleaned out Lloyd Center of those ones, though. They are super high quality, tons of paint, very satisfied.

    Portland TFAW has one Combiner Wars Cyclonus for $26.99.

    Price is a bit higher than normal but they have to take into account that regular customers will use their discount on him.
