    Transformers barely have an aisle presence these days. Do kids still play with Transformers or is it strictly us adult collectors keeping the line alive?

    It is still mostly kids, even for the CHUG style figures. Probably mostly adults for the Masterpiece line.

    Darn, i just open my Seaspray that was $5.

    I've been been waiting for the Wave 2 Deluxe figures since I believe someone reported them there. Wave 2 Voyagers can be found at Target and most of the Walmarts in North of Dallas. I had no issues finding Hun-Garr and Elita-1.

    i'm just waiting for the Wave 2 Dinobots!

    I think Texas, or at least the Houston area, might be out of luck. I called on TRU and they don't have SS Thundercracker and neither do the other stores. They also don't know if they will be getting a shipment. Looks like we are f'cked

    I know, I was there over the weekend. They have like twelve Hounds and they are all sitting at $13.

    I had meant to go around checking other stores, glad I saved myself from dissapointment. Seriously wondering where Wave 2 is.

    If you are looking for POTP wave 2 Prime Masters, check your Kroger stores. I got Alpha Trion/Landmine and Alchemist Prime/Submarauder at the Kroger off 2920/249 in Tomball this morning for $6.99 each. They are in the toy/Easter aisle. I left the following there:

    Titan Masters: Repugnus, Shuffler (X 2), Nightbeat, and Skytread
    Prime Masters: Vector Prime/Metalhawk (X 2), Liege Maximo/Skullgrin (X 2), Alpha Trion/Landmine (X 2), and a single Alchemist Prime/Submarauder

    Now all I need is the POTP wave 2 Legends figures to be caught up.

    Last year I wouldn't have expected Kroger of all chains to be at the forefront of TF stuff. Wow.

    Hope you guys in Houston are having a good toy show.

    Quick question. Which waves of TF's are showing up at Ross? It took me several stores in Vietnam but I finally managed to snag TR Windblade, Twin Twist and Misfire. Half off (so $16). Regular price for Hasbro TF's in Asia is twice retail in the US.

    Yep, TITAN RETURNS deluxes are being seen in Ross stores. Hell, I got a Hot-Rod from an area Ross that RARELY has anything and I spotted an actual T.R. Blitzwing at a Marshalls, so keep watch.

    Considering that Meijr (sp) is part of Krogers, do you think we'll see some Studio Series stuff in the Kroger stores?

    That's certainly a development. Do you have any pics to prove? this could be front page news.
