    I have to say, I might be one of the only people who appreciates a more lightweight plastic. Over time I think it will put less pressure on the joints. Some of my old leaders can barely stand now, all the knee joints have been stressed from just standing there.

    I know most people on TFW seem to complain about shrinking sizes and lighter plastic but it really doesn't bother me. I don't really think the new figures seem cheap as a result.

    Sheffield and Sheffield Liquidation up in Humble had 4 boxes of Predaking for 100 each. The boxes definitely weren't pristine, but some were better than others.

    Nada at Targets along this route. Found 2 Bonecrushers, but the Primes were gone. No sign of any Jetfires.
    Le sigh. I'll find them eventually. Still fun to hunt again.

    I grabbed both OP 32 and Bonecrusher at Wal-Mart. I have yet to see Jetfire at Walmart tho.

    I haven’t seen that or the mythical $10 titans return overlord that the ross/TJMaxx boards are finding. I’ve checked all 4 TJMaxx in San Antonio, and have checked the New Braunfels and Forum TJMaxx almost daily so far.

    Here are some South Texas sightings (Rio Grande Valley):

    Brownsville Walmart (Boca Chica) - SS WW2 Bumblebee, Crankcase and Sideswipe (of course they have them after ordering on BBTS)
    Brownsville Target - picked up 34 Megatron, no Jetfire, have SS Bumblebee, tattooed Starscream, Siege Shockwave

    Still on the hunt for Jetfire/Skyfire...I bet in another month he will be shelf warming like Grimlock LOL

    Just checked the Kroger Marketplace in Castle Hills. They have a ton of SS wave 1 deluxes and Voyagers. Which would have been cool if they weren’t $24.99 and $36.99 respectively. Yikes!

    Anybody have a SS Ironhide? He’s the only one I’m missing.

    I agree... and when something falls it takes it a lot better too.
