    So I found a PotP Wreck-Gar at the Walgreens off Taylor's Ferry. But get this... when I went to pay for it, the purchase was marked down by 90%! I asked the checker if that was right, it seemed WAY low, so I paid less that $2 for Wreck-Gar! MIND. BLOWN. Dunno if it was a store error or if others have had a similar experience?

    There's a new action figure store called starwarscollectible.com or something like that at WS Mall, it's next to Macy's. Their TF's seemed reasonably price except maybe the Walmart Devastator G1 Reissue, not a lot of TF selection though. They also had various types of figures such as SW, ML and others.

    Went there today, they had two WFC Siege Megatrons for a pretty good price, only $35. Was a bit tempted, but I decided I'll be patient and save $5 to get it at retail. It's a wave 1 figure, shouldn't be too hard to find once they start hitting retail

    Would you guys let me know if you find the micromasters, Cog, or Skytread at retail?

    As a more useful note, the Target out by Clackamas town center was restocking today, everything was still in boxes but I'll be heading back to check at some point, for sure.

    I just got mine on Thursday that was pre-ordered three or four weeks ago from Amazon. It shipped from Troutdale on Weds. o_O

    Huh! I thought it'd shown up already... Glad I got mine then, if it's like wave 5 Titans Return where it's going to end up being horrendously rare. Rare at retail, mind.

    Optimal Optimus at Beaverton Target. Put it behind Studio Grimlocks.

    Been hunting at Ross' for a few times now and no signs of any Cybertronians for weeks now. Unless you are interested in RID and TLK line, we are Sh...out of luck. RID Soundwaves and BEE, TLK Premier Deluxe's such as Drift, Swoop and whoever it is on their wavemates can still be found there. Also worth mentioning some last attempts line on Rescuebots. Furthermore, that big ass talking interactive Twilight Sparkle Pony are being sold at Ross for a mere half a price of the orginal $99 retail price tag.

    Fred Meyer has BOGO on Board Games and Card Games on Friday. Any thoughts on if this would apply to the Transformers Card game?

    Probably not. Pokémon, magic, and everything else in the section where the TF card game is are all considered to be in the “magazine” category. I don’t really know why but it’s just the way it is. (I work there) But I also know that if you make a big enough stink about it they’ll probably give you some kind of deal.

    Anybody here playing/collecting the Transformers Trading Card Game?

    If so, interested in playing and/or trading?

    Does that local meet-up thread still exist?
