    Gunbarrel and Ooltewah Walmart stores both have restocked their g1 minbots, siege deluxe and SS deluxe figures. Also had 1 each of siege Starscream and soundwave. But of course no leader figures.

    The plastic feels different; a bit firmer and stiffer than Gunpla, and some of the construction design isn't quite up to par with some of the more modern Gundam kits, but overall I was really impressed with how solid and nice-looking it came out to be. I'd put him on par with a RE 1/100 kit or an upper-tier HG like the Sinanju Stein, but not quite on the level of a Real Grade (which I think he's priced at).

    I got Pteraxadon at East Knoxville Target about a month ago, but I haven't seen the other one or any of the new Micromasters. They did have one each of Siege Voyager Soundwave and Starscream yesterday, but I got the Soundwave. SS Voyager Rampage and Deluxe Sideswipe were also there, IIRC.

    Maryville has become a pit of despair when it comes to new Transformers. :(

    Still haven't seen the second wave of micromasters or weaponizers around here.:p  Maybe if I call this place a "pit of hell" I will find those tomorrow. ;)

    1 Galaxy Optimus at the Wal-Mart next to West Town Mall Knox as of about 15 minutes ago. It was in front with a Shockwave but I put him behind the Shockwave, nothing fancy.

    The more I mess with Galaxy Prime, I absolutely love him. Dare I say I like it more than Magnus

    Finally found Aimless today in Johnson City.

    Somebody said the distribution is better ever since they started the brand unification thing. But the distribution is as shitty as ever.:( 


    So that crappy new Optimus Prime ships with Shockwave? I was wondering why I'm seeing a bunch of Shockwaves all over but no other leaders.

    He really is great. He's a fun update to the original. Considering that with the armor the original could just stand there with all the armor on.
    I could care less what you actually think of the toy but maybe just try to say things a little nicer yeah? Saying something as a fact and saying something as an opinion are a little different.

    After working in small increments, I'm finally done with the Furai Screamer Model (not a good poser). Now on to IDW Prime.

    I picked up attack mode at Christmas. I liked attack mode prime, feels a little more solid than Starscream. But both were fun builds

    For the Marvel Legends collectors. I found Infamous Iron Man at the Walgreens in Oakland. They had 2 more left.
