    Didn't really note how much the stock was at each store, but pretty much all the Targets in and around Portland (Cascade, Mall 205 in particular) had tons of the TR Legends wave today, all three figures.

    I grabbed myself a Wheelie, the first and last Titans Return figure for me until that Legends Bumblebee shows up, unless there are any other cool Legends figures that appear out of nowhere, like the Combiner Wars Shockwave.

    I like Wheelie but man, would it have killed Hasbro to give him a slingshot or something? $10 for no weapons at all is kind of weak, I remember when $10 got you a whole other Transformer that doubled as a weapon. Even the packaging shows a weapon...

    But still, he looks good on MP Grimlock (until there is a properly sized MP Wheelie from a decent company, anyways) and he kind of fits in with my Legends / 3P Legends with Utopia (bit too big, but I'm not paying 3P prices for a Legends Wheelie of all Transformers), so he's worth the $10. Way better than the previous Wheelie Legends figure, imo.

    I do not really hunt as much as I used to due to a good portion of my finances go to my home. Also, some of my finances went into developing the last two Rainmakers.

    My message was more towards schlagwerk who indicated that he is looking for Brainstorm.

    Not Transformers related, but if anyone is still looking for the Marvel Legends X-Men figures, Jantzen Beach Target is pretty much the only store in the Portland area left that has a case of 8 -- almost every other store is completely sold out. They couldn't find the case last night when I asked, but they may have put it out today.

    I grabbed Wolverine / Deadpool / Cable / Rogue from Mill Plain Target in Vancouver, they just put them out when I walked in. Other four are still there.

    Edit: All gone. One guy came in and grabbed Bee and max. Another guy grabbed the last bee minutes later.

    Well I went to Tigard tru, there's 1 fort max left after I snagged another. Got home opened it up aaaannnnd disappointed.
    Wtf transformation is this? There's nothing neat about this at all compared to metroplex. Even g1 Max has more to do than this! This 150 dollar toy should be 75 and no higher. Boooooo!

    The TR Wave 1 Deluxes were at Beaverton 217 Target today. I was there around lunchtime and left one full set and a second Scourge because I just can't bring myself to buy that hideous alt mode :/
    Really liking the other three, though. I'm more impressed with these than I thought I'd be - which is good news for me, but bad news for my wallet.

    (a little) off topic: I am actually okay with Scourge's alt mode, it's his metallic blue that made me hold off. Takara's version, on the other hand, looks to be a thing of beauty.

    I just really don't like the squared areas at the front of the alt mode, they just ruin the sleek space-boat look. A little modding might fix that problem, but I worry there are hinges there that I would be ruining.
    You're right about the Takara colors, though...it even makes the issues I have with the mold less noticeable. I might have to consider getting that version instead.
    Also torn about Power-master Prime. I like both versions.
