    Um. Really? You take the chest lens off, plug it into the 5mm hole on the bottom of the camera body, then take the curved tabs/fins on the tripod and insert them into the curved slots on the lens piece. Voila.

    You might have to play with the pieces to make them more stable I am guessing?

    I posted a how-to in the Refraktor review thread:
    Chambersburg Target has SS car-Dropkick, SS Long Haul and KSI Boss, two Minicon packs, and various Siege Leaders. A few other things as well, but nothing earth-shattering.

    Hi all. Mentioned this the other day. I'm in Philadelphia and hoping to find a local buyer for an extra MP-44 to avoid the hassle of shipping it. It's just arrived and I can arrange a time to meet for delivery as soon as this weekend. I'm asking $400.

    Still there, plus one of those big Cyberverse Megatrobs. That is it as far as TF's go.

    Not a transformers related bit of information but something I figured I’d share if anybody cares as it pertains to this area. Also sadly a story a lot of us hate to deal with. I recently got into Pokémon with my daughter. We like to play the game and buy cards to play.

    There was a new collector set coming out called hidden fates and thought that might be fun to get. Well if any of you are into Pokémon you know how hard it is to find this. When the pin collections came out I wasn’t able to get any because my GameStop did not open on time. I couldn’t find them anywhere and put this down to a lot of people that are collectors and it just being hard to get. However on Friday the new tins came out. I had found out I could pre-order them at GameStop and pre-ordered myself some. When I was there there was somebody else there who was gloating how they have pre-ordered 300 in the 30 mile vicinity from here and was buying all the ones he can fine anywhere. He then said he did this for the purpose of reselling them and had made so much money. He had complained that local Walmarts had not stocked anything as he had been checking every day. He then told me how he wasn’t even sure if the GameStop had enough for our pre-orders. When I told him they did and had extra he said he plan to buy all of them. Luckily I was in line in front of him and this had made me so irritated that I bought most of the extras because I actually wanted these for a collection with my daughter not for resale. One of the employees there who also had put 2 tins collections aside for himself told me he was hoping I would buy them so this guy couldn’t get them. As he had been really bothering the store and being very rude about trying to get as much product as possible and complaining when it wouldn’t work out.

    The next day my local Walmart had finally stocked the Pokémon cards with the pin collections in the tins. They actually got around 20 tins. A day and a half later he must’ve went there because everything was gone (all 20 tins were there the night before as my daughter wanted to spend her birthday money and get one more tin). Now maybe a bunch of people went in there (Sunday morning) or somebody else in bought all them but with how he was acting and telling me he was checking every day I’m pretty sure it was him.

    This is just one of the worst aspects of any hobby. Well I’m sure as I’ve done it myself we’ve all bought one or two figures to help with our collection. However I’m pretty sure most people here are not searching the entire area and buying everything we can find only to then market up at a higher price to sell it to people that actually want it.

    I had spent so much more money on these cards than I plan to as now I know the only way I have a chance to buy as much as I can when I see them. Because I can’t wait to maybe pick up a pack here there for my daughter as a reward or just decide to get a pack to surprise her. It’s just very disappointing to not only have to spend a lot of money on something all at once but know it’s because someone is just trying to make money off of it. Definitely kills a lot of the fun of this.

    Sorry for the long post

    The only thing worse than a scalper is a scalper who gleefully brags about it.

    If anyone is near Coal Twp. Walmart, they allegedly have 3 Seige Jetfires at $45 a pop, according to Brickseek. Apparently some Walmarts are clearancing him already. Some near me have as well (including Bloomsburg), but are out of stock.

    Gawdangit! If I saw one for $45 I'd snag it in a heartbeat. Even with already owning one, I love the alt mode enough to double-dip.

    It’s this price at the Waynesboro and Hagerstown location also. They just got it about two weeks ago to. I noticed all the new retro marvel legends on clearance also

    There was one at Wal-Mart a couple days ago. Either the Warminster one or Warrington. I'm pretty sure the Warminster one

    Snagged the lone Jetfire at Waynesboro Walmart. ML Retro $11 tags were up, but no stock on pegs.
