    Nothing locally, but I happily scored a Skyshadow from Amazon for retail price, plus Masterpiece Megatron arrived yesterday, so I'm good for now.
    Besides, the only thing I need now is Topspin.

    Well, my visit to Target wasn't a total waste. I did grab Rogue One on Blu-ray.

    Heheh
    Yeah, Skyshadow was in and out of stock all morning for around $47. I just happened to see it pop up on my dash and hit the 'one click' without hesitation.

    Just wondered where you ordered mp Megatron from, and did it have an orange or yellow cap on it?

    You don't understand.....Skyshadow and Overlord come second only to Trypticon this year as far as highly anticipated figures go. I need my Phase 6er's!

    I have mine as well. I ordered from amiami and there was no orange plug on mine. The thing is incredible.

    I almost feel bad for future MP releases since they'll inevitably be held up to Megatron as far as amazing engineering goes. This mold pretty much wrecked the judging bar.

    Nothing new or interesting at the Shippensburg Walmart.
    Although, now that a known scalper has again made an appearance in the sightings thread, I'm not feeling all that interested in posting any helpful information for them.

    West Mifflin TRU put out the Chaos on Velocitron sets. There were still a few when I left around 5:15 on 4/4

    I have lately been feeling this way about posting because someone keeps buying the new transformers and repacking them (with other figures) and returning them to my local wal mart in waynesboro. I can only hope it's not someone on this board it's really frustrating. They have even bought titan master figure and took the head and glued another head on it. What if a kid bought these or someone bought them for a gift.
    Well now that I'm off my soapbox. I went to chambersburg target when they opened to get the loan NES classic they got (finally done looking for this). Sadly they haven't got any new transformers though

    This is true and I'm not even a MP collector. The only acceptation has been 3 of MP Soundwave's Cassettes (Laserbeak, Buzzsaw and Ravage) which fit perfectly in my "CHUG" collection making any Generations version made since then a huge pass.

    Same goes for that recent TR Voyager class Megatron. Now I don't expect regular Generations figures to be of the same quality as the new MP version but HasTak can do far better than making crummy second hand versions from what's clearly a mold meant for Blitzwing... CW Leader class was too big for my lineup. FOC Megatron looked great but as a deluxe was too small and as result, "Classics" United Voyager Megatron has been my go to which wont be changing anytime soon.

    Meanwhile, no sightings of a TR SkyShadow at Retail cost on Amazon so far this morning :thumbdown .

    Picked up the chaos on velocitron set last week. I thought Nautica was missing something so I went ahead and made her a wrench!

    I have a friend (also in Pgh) who is thinking of selling the Laser Prime from the Velocitron set. Anyone interested? He'd prefer local. Let me know and I will share contact info.

    I think the only way I'd buy the octane mold as prime is if it were released as scourge/nemesis prime... but if that were to happen I'm guessing it too would be part of a box set.

    I'm hoping Takara will put one out. They have for nearly every other Prime in the past few years. But I heard a rumor about there being a Scourge repaint as a convention exclusive. I hope not. :\

    Just got back from steel city con. Not much to report. One guy had some masterpieces: rachet,Shockwave, cheetor.
    Couldn't bring myself to pay 70 for cheetor, I'm gonna wait for the KO.
