    I have placed all my Gundams back in boxes since "00" ended. I was planning to get those line too but TF's had dominated by wallet since TF: Prime toyline was released. I had a few chances in the wild recently to get both SIEGE Megs and Prime and most of the deluxes and micromasters but passed on all execpt for Cog which I planned on installing for my Fort Max. SIEGE seems to be a really good line but like Wraith Prime, I just cannot justify $49.99 for a "leader class" that is technically a size of a Broadside Voyager. When Magnus was first introduced I was so excited but ended up getting a THF MP KO Magnus instead. For a few more dollars, I have an MP scale Magnus. I am expecting a Quietus very soon too so I might end up passing SIEGE line as a whole.....Until maybe SIEGE Galaxy Convoy arrives.

    Siege is great. They like baby MPs. Sideswipe, Optimus, Shockwave for sure. :)  They at least borrow or got inspired by some of the MP engineering and look.

    Fred Meyer Bumblebee movie toys are 50% and there's an extra 10% off coupon in the weekly ad.

    Got the tiny legion class Bumblebee Volkswagen for $3.60 :p

    I agree with you on the Siege line. Just because I don't like the new price points doesn't mean they aren't great figures. I feel bad if I gave the wrong impressions in my rants earlier. I'm really looking forward to Cybertron Optimus/Galaxy Convoy. I knew they were going to make one as soon as I saw those guns that came with Ultra Magnus. I also really hope they retool some G1 cab parts for Optimus because I don't feel like modding mine. Even if they don't, Optimus is still a fantastic figure and definitely worth of replacing Classics OP on your CHUG display if you don't already have a MP-10V KO.

    Are they stocking the big one with the spinning-chest voice gimmick? Seems like a cool one for the kids, so %50 off would be a good deal.

    I have not seen those at Freddy's. What I saw were Cyberverse Ultra class I think. I got me a Grimlock from $24.99 to $12.49. Furthermore, the one in Northlancaster Salem, have a bunch of Legends class Tailgates for Battletraps $6.99 and POTP Primemasters for $3.99.

    I just found my Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus and Megatron sitting on a shelf. They do not compare well to their siege counterparts IMO. Is anyone locally interested in them before I try other places?

    They are both open, good condition and complete, but no packaging or instructions. I hadn't really settled on a price.

    G1 OP at Holgate Walmart (one had an open side flap that I did not investigate). Also a packet of Taco Bell hot sauce on the bottom shelf.

    Some Siege deluxes and a case of Botbots blind packs.

    The OP is for Over Priced :bay

    Agreed. That shit of Optimus is just plain robbery. Not even with a trailer. Double that price and you got a Magic Square or TE MP-44 Masterpiece-esque Optimus.

    Anybody spot O.G. Gears or Warpath at their k-marts wal-marts yet? Kinda weird asking that...

    No need to check your calendars, you're not in 1986 with technology from 2019. :p

    I don't see either on the SKU finder at Brickseek. Do we know when to expect them to hit retail?

    Walmart Turner in Salem: SIEGE (Hound, Cog, Sideswipe and Skythread) all deluxes about 2 each. Also all Wave 1 micromasters. As a bonus, saw a lonely G1 Swerve at the clearance isle for $7, I garbbed him, kinda hard to pass.

    Target Keizer Station: SIEGE Megs and Optimus and micromasters. Saw Studio Series Jazz too if you're in to that.

    Non TF-Related but if anyone finds those Destiny Mega Construx or Star Wars Black Series Obi Wan at Ross/TJMaxx/Marshalls, could you let me know or pick them up for me?
    Thanks!

    Finally went out looking for Transformers. Mall 205 has Siege Voyagers Optimus and Megatron. One of each. Other than that nothing very notable.

    A bunch of Siege Wave 1 voyagers, 1 Leader Magnus and 1 Shockwave at Clackamas Target.

    And as a bonus...in 2018 I started collecting the demo derby guys from Cars 3. They went out of circulation on 2017 and over the year I was slowly picking them up wherever they appeared at retail...things got easier when some of them were re-released so I didnt have to pay triple or quadruple the price for them on eBay or amazon. This two pack on particular is egregiously expensive and man...it gets a re-release in the Thunder Hollow rebrand. Now my collection is complete...minus the 2017 Wal-Mart exclusives with the rubber tires. Just gonna write those guys off.

    What a nice day today! Found a Studio Series Barricade at the Eastport Plaza Walmart. The only one. None of his other wavemates there.

    Bruh! I actually have seen all of the above during the past Christmas Shopping rush at Ross. I don't know now if they will have them still. There were a few Destiny ones that have figures and vehicles. Saw Obi Wan with a Starfighter before, together with some Storm Pilots and their Tie Fighter/Interceptor. Is that the one you are looking for?
