    This is basically just a bump since apparently nothing is going on around here....

    I've seen a couple of restocks of Siege Deluxes, but I've not seen a restock of the voyagers (Soundwave/Starscream)
    That and Beaverton Target AGAIN put the Leader class Galaxy OP on the shelf and AGAIN refused to sell it to me...

    Anyways, for those interested, Walgreens is starting to stock un-boxed versions of the Jada die-cast cars for $6 including G1 Optimus, both Movie Optimus, and KITT.
    They are just on the rack with all of the other die cast cars.

    Going into Portland tomorrow, even though I'm Oregonian it's been a while since I've been able to explore the area. Anyone know of any places to buy third party or new official figures other than, say, Rogue Toys?

    Rogue is the only one I know of. The Star Wars Store that used to be in Clackamas Town Center used to have some but I guess they moved to Washington Square Mall? I haven't been there since they left Clackamas.

    Yeah, figured, but thank you. Do they have a decent selection at all?

    Rogue Toy’s selection of Transformers has drastically shrunk. The wall of un-sellable Funko pops is taking over and pushing them out.

    Ah, thanks. Might cross them off the list of places to visit if that's the case, good to know.

    That's sad to hear. Haven't been over in a while, but that Funko Pop Wall always seemed to be slowly encroaching on everything else.

    Hey guys, not a sighting but I figured I’d put it out there that my band is having our EP release party tonight in Salem. So if you like alt/rock, you should check it out! I’m not supposed to post links here but if you’re interested you can send me a message! It’s looking like it’ll be a really big turnout so it’ll be fun!

    I don't really get Pops anymore. They never seem to move in meaningful numbers to justify stocking up on them. Even TFAW can't seem to move their Pops fast enough.

    To quote Spaceballs: "We ain't found shit!"

    It's been a big bunch of nothing around lately. I'm excited about Reflector, but I am dreading trying to find 3 of them...

    in other news, if anyone happens to have a TR Windblade they're looking to get rid of, I'm still in the market : /

    Better price, but they've got to modify the molds to be more unique. When you combine them to form the camera, it needs features like a viewport, film advance, button and flash. Hopefully this "deluxe" version comes later.

    I think the camera mode is for fans. Kind of like Soundwaves tape player mode. It's antiquated technology so there's no need for them to transform into those items. That's why soundwaves actual alt mode is like a tank or something. I'm going completeist on Reflector so it's a must for me. I would also agree with you otherwise.

    I'm okay with how they are. I'd rather have the cartoon accuracy. I've got 3 of them PO'd on BBTS. Can't wait.
