Hey everyone! Just wanted to thank everyone for coming down to our grand opening and supporting us! We certainly wouldn't be around without all the fans! Our tentative store hours are M-F 11-7 and Sat 10-6 and we'll update as needed for winter holidays and such. we'll be closed monday to observe president's day. Thanks again!!
got these 3 at the walmart in nacogdoches today!!
found in mineola
Tru at park and 75 has complete sets of sky reign and combaticons deluxes
Not a local sighting but have got a Combiner Wars G2 Menasor set on the way from Dorksidetoys who confirmed they have them in stock now, not a preorder at about $110.00.
scored Slipstream at ToyDojo! the place is jam packed with a multitude of goodies and awesome stuff on display, highly recommended even if you're as far as San Antonio, there is nowhere else quite like this with this much variety and you're sure to find something.
Willowbrook TRU has 1 each of CW deluxe Hound, Smokescreen, Trailbreaker, and Wheeljack. I passed on them for now.
Target in Plano off 75/Parker Rd has one Onslaught.
Found several Sky Reign limb sets at Lewisville TRU. I want that Smokescreen BAD, but $20 for a deluxe is lunacy... Side note, picked up Prowl and Hound at Wal-Mart the other day.
Anybody else think that Wheeljack looks like poo?
My biggest complaint with Jackie is he is so bland. Repro labels will help hopefully
If you don't already have a TRU rewards card, you should get one. I recently got a deal on a combiner wars brawl for $10 at TRU. I price matched Walmart, then used a $5 rewards.
Yea, the new Wheeljack looks awful!
I despise the Breakdown mold, so Wheeljack was always a no for me. I have the old one.
Spotted in Walmart (Yale St - Houston)
Spotted a few Skywarps, a Scattershot and Swindle, Brawl & Blast Off at the Walmart on Yale Street in Houston.
Distribution is so dismal that most Walmarts & Targets I've been to barely have a "TF Section". A few empty pegs squeezed at the far end of the action-figure aisle is all I've seen for ages, without any sign of Sky Lynx, Shockwave, or any of the 2nd set of Autobot Deluxes. So far, over the past weeks I've spotted one hidden G1-Megatron, two Leader Skywarps and one Onslaught. I guess that's more than others have found, so I'm happy to have seen these at least, and I'll try to remain patient.
...Changing the subject from hunting the big-box stores, has anyone (specifically in San Antonio) had luck finding older TF's or KO's at flea markets, if so, at what locations, and are the prices reasonable? I don't frequent them now, but as a kid, I remember seeing beat-up (and overpriced) G1's on a table in a booth/display and wondering what else may be found out there.
Mainly for curiosity's sake, please share any Texas Flea-market TF finds.
I'm also down to hear about these hidden gems too! and maybe score a greasy tripa taco
lets hear about flea markets in the Austin, San Antonio areas or anywhere in between/nearby
Houston: Mother load of sky reign deluxes at Lazy Hollow Target, combaticon limb set at TRU on Westheimer
Spotted a Smokescreen and RID One-Steps at Sugar Land Walmart.
I love tax season.
Nice!! I am with you..just ordered Road Rage and MP Ironhide. If it wasn't for the extra money I would have passed on them. Still need to pick up that MP Magnus. I got Citzen Stacks holding his place for now.
