    Thanks for the advice! I haven't bought any movie figures since all the drone looking ones that come out with ROTF (I think), so I didn't know anything about the dino molds that were reused. I don't care for their appearance overall, but at $15 I thought I might give it a shot. I'll probably wait for awhile before I go for Berserker, because while I love the Predator with bullet belt dreads look I reeeeeally want Nitro and I can't budget for more than about $40/mo for TFs until the pre-orders I have in are paid. Unfortunately, in regards to what it means for future shelf space, TLK doesn't seem to be moving a whole lot around here. From what i've read, its the same way elsewhere.

    Yeah,the voyagers (primarily Scorn, Nitro, and Hound, but Megatron and Prime too) are the highlights, but Berserker (arguably), Sqweeks, Drift, and the Wave Three car guys (presumably) are your best options for Deluxes. I miraculously found Hound, Scorn, and recently, Nitro in a Walmart, at retail, so maybe you'll come into some luck.

    I keep finding the newer wave stuff (mostly Wave 4 deluxe for now) near the collector's section in the back (see: posters, Pops!, printed glassware, etc.) by the electronics, but not in either section proper, just a separate shelf that rides the fine line in between both sections. Why they put them there when the pegs in the toy aisle are almost empty, I have no idea.

    Get Blue Bluestreak. He's even better.

    I dunno, my Walmarts only have piles upon piles of Wave 1 stuff.

    It's changed in the past 2 weeks around here. Finally. I've seen everything but the dragon and megatron legends.

    Well, Harvey has somewhat passed. My family and i have been blessed that nothing serious has happened. It has stopped raining but the fear now is the rising flood water. So the collection is still boxed and up several feet. Hoping for the best.

    TLK Voyager Hound and TLK Turbo Changer Megatron. I wasn't planning to get either, but there's a TRU $20 off Hasbro purchases over $50 online coupon that's expiring Aug 1st. With Hound at $40 and Megatron at $12 regularly, I got the pair for $35 CAD w/tax. Not too shabby. I wanted at least one Movie Hound and I can easily justify just one more TLK Megatron.

    Got it complete for $80 shipped. The most I've ever spent on a used figure but I doubt I'll ever find one for much cheaper...

    Got some pure nuttiness in the post today. Optimal Optimus and Herc Armstrong from The Inhumanoids. I don't think these got a proper release over here but my childhood friend had the four 'good guys' somehow. I remeber them being such weird goofy figures. I kind of hated them. Now I kind of love them.

    Optimal Optimus looks a bit intense. I'm looking forward to getting him home and having a play this evening.
