    Great mod OmarTJ82! It is more than anything I would attempt, as I'm a novice at such things, but your results were clean & subtle; it looks "factory". I'm still holding out hope to get Sky Lynx in-store or at HTS.com for MSRP. Unfortunately, that premise didn't turn out so well for my hunt for RTS WindCharger- I never did get hold of him.

    Yeah! My store got 4 Slogs. Recently got in some other very old product that is on clearance pricing as well. I wonder what warehouse they dug these out of.

    The Target and Walmart in Tomball both have 1 CW Leader Starscream each. There is also a lone CW Legends Wreck-Gar at the Walmart off 2920 and Kuykendahl.

    I am still holding out hope for another CW Voyager restock with the Sky Lynx case hits stores before the Titans Returns does. I am glad to see the CW Leader case with Starscream did.

    No new TF sightings, but I did see Star Wars Black 6" Luke and Kanan Jarrus at the Round Rock Wal-Mart on I-35 this morning.

    Haven't posted in a while, but found Thunderhoof at Southpark Meadows Wal Mart. (There were two but I grabbed one of them). Also one Quillfire. (May or may not be there, a little boy seemed highly interested in it)

    Anyone looking for CW Leader Starscream, I saw three this morning at the following stores (each store had 1):

    Walmart on 2920/Kuykendahl
    Walmart on 249/Spring Cypress
    Willowbrook ToysRUs

    I am still holding out hope another stocking round of the CW Voyager Sky Lynx/Onslaught case will hit stores before Titans Return Voyagers cases hit.

    I gave up the hunt and ordered the case from TFSource when they restocked earlier this week. I don't really have an interest in Onslaught so he'll probably end up at a local Target.

    Has there been a sky Lynx sighting anywhere? Not just Texas. I mean anywhere in the United States. This is the most elusive figure in this line. I know hasbro has crappy distribution but dang!

    I actually have spotted Sky Lynx twice in stores here in Houston. Once at a Target and once at a Walmart about a month or so ago. I believe each store got 1 case and that was it. Then the stores started stocking the Battle Core Optimus Prime/Motormaster case again.

    I passed on him both times thinking I would be able to get him easy in the coming months. Now, I am no so sure I will be able to get one. :(

    San Antonio has had about three skylynx sightings and a friend had seen him in Dallas. That's about all I know.

    For those that are in Houston - plenty of Transformers vendors at the Houston Comicpalooza (it runs until Sunday). Even Toy Dojo have set up stall - selling mostly Masterpiece and 3rd Party figures but there was a decent smattering of other lines as well. At least one guy was selling a Sky Lynx.

    If anyone does end up visiting be sure to check out the stall next to Toy Dojo's. - it's a local Texan artists named Juan Carlos Ramos who has some AMAZING G1 artwork prints for sale. Highly recommended.

    I can vouch for him as well. I own several prints from him. I bought Soundwave and Grimlock prints at BotCon 2012. And a Venom print from him at Comicpalooza....two years ago? I meant to buy a Spider-Man print this time around, but I didn't get around to it. So many good artists. Lol.

    For those in Austin: the Sidekick Store next to Austin Books and Comics had the Menasor & Superion Box Sets at a substantial discount. Like $65 and $75 each. The boxes were a little damaged but seemed intact.

    Looking forward to getting Titans Return in stores. Any bets on how long it will take for stuff to filter in? I am guessing that the Masters will show up quickly, as they would require a new peg and price, but I bet the Voyagers and Leaders will show up shortly after. Not sure on when Deluxes will pop up, but probably lagging behind everything else given that CW Wave 6 will be sitting for a while.

    What are you implying? Are you really going to return something to a store you didn't buy it at?

    I was not implying that and while this would make a lively round table discussion in person, a quick search tells me similar topics devolve quickly online. It was an innocuous statement that you can consider retracted.
