    My store has two cases of Unicron on the shelf, but again, the store isn't open yet. Grrr!

    Totally. I'm for it. I'm behind on my drinking time.

    Is the old TRU at 75 & Parker still open? It's going to close, right? When?

    You up for a get-together, Runamuck?

    Ouch, that does suck. I was thinking of purchasing Ultra Magnus off HTS, but looks like I'll wait out the 1-2 months to find him at retail.

    Also, I saw 2 ToysRUs Exclusive Universe Unicrons in College Station on Wednesday.

    Yay! I got me a Unicron last night. Stopped by the TRU in Beaumont just for the hell of it and they had 4 of 'em on the shelf. Like I said, I got one and the three that were left were in kinda beat up boxes though.

    I can't wait to get home from work today to mess around with him for a little. Joy!

    (Can you tell I'm a little excited? I've wanted this mold for quite a while now but never bothered getting one used.)

    Confused? So am I.

    I really don't know when it's going to open. I get a different answer each time I ask someone. The store manager said this morning that it was going to open in 18 days including today. So, what day is that?

    Anyways, yes, the Plano store is still open, but barely has anything to sell. The old store is closing for good a few days before the other one opens.

    And yeah, I'd love to hang out, Clyde. This weekend good?

    Just got back from the Walmart at Westview and the Beltway and they had a display full of 3-pack Bumblebees. Unfortunately, on close inspection, the paint job is a joke. The yellow on Classics Bumblebee's chest doesn't even match the other parts on the figure. I was excited to pick this one up but not anymore after seeing this in person.

    Bryan Target got more Animated Deluxe wave 4 in. I saw 2 Sentinel Primes, 2 Elite Guard Bumblebees, and 1 Swoop. I also saw a Universe Acid Storm and a couple Universe Galvatrons there as well.

    I got mine on Thursday from them as well, and unfortuntately his paint is pretty sloppy - the white/light blue under the "try me" button seems to have been rubbed off (about 2 inches along the bottom edge) and he has a preyty bad glob of paint on one eye. I guess I'm going to wait until retail and swap him out, what a bummer though. That empty space on my TFA shelf haunts me in my sleep.

    I've been avoiding getting him fom Hasbro Toy Shop based on a lot of what I've been reading here. Hopefully we won't have to much longer to wait till we acctually see him at retail.

    Hey, sorry I've been so long without posting. Haven't been getting a whole lot of toy time, and my store has been a bit slow to get the good stuff. When I left today, the cooper target in arlngton had at least 3 each of swoop, elite bumblebee, and sent prime, as far as tfa goes. Also pretty well stocked on universe dlx, voy, and ultra. I got a look at the powerglide repaint in the back. I'll try and get it to the floor as soon as it shows up on my pulls. On a personal note, I got my soundwave and a deadpool supersquad on an early morning walmart run. Picked up the cable pack, too, so I can have a mini civil war.

    I found one Animated Ultra Magnus today at the Wal-Mart at 290/Ben White and Mopac in Austin. Needless to say, it isn't there anymore, so keep your eyes out, Ultra Magnus is starting to hit stores!

    I found Unicron at TRU in Frisco today. FINALLY!!! They had 6-8 of them left. This was noon today so I am sure most are still there.
