    He probably means Sideswipe or Silverstreak. So many S...s..es, y'know! :) 

    Anyone seen an Animated Ultra Magnus in North Dallas area?

    I picked up two at Target off Coit and Campbell about two going on three weeks ago. And saw another one today at Target off Park and Tollway. Some kid was looking at it, don't know if he took off with it or not.

    Not a sighting but guess what showed up at my door step. Shockwave and Skyarp from HTS. They have been really good lately. I received ultra magnus, ironhide, sideswipe and silverstreak about 2-3.weeks ago. The only problem is the boxes if your a MISB collector and quality control. All 3 have very minor paint issues but with the coupons and saving gas it's been worth it.

    In the summer I ordered the animated toys. They came out about the end of may begining of june I think and I didn't received mine until july/aug. Latley they have been great though. I should of ordered cylonus from them but the release date looks to be later so I will take my chances at retail.

    Wal Mart at 1604 and 281 had one elite guard BB. They also had the exclusive marvel legends including 2 different human torches and "scarlet spider" that came in packaged in 3 different poses yet I didn't see any noticeable difference so I think they were the same fig.

    College Station Walmart got more Universe wave 3 deluxes: Ironhide, Sideswipe, & Silverstreak. They also have an animated Sentinel Prime (as does the Bryan Target). I got the only Universe Ultra Storm Cloud at Bryan Walmart at lunch today.

    Does anyone collect the DC Classics figures in the Dallas area? My wife and I have been looking everywhere for a wave 2 Aquaman with the short hair and green gloves. We're not desperate enough to pay for him on eBay yet.

    I collect DC Universe figures and I have never seen a wave 2 short hair Aquaman in person. I ended up buying a case from BBTS and I got the long haired version. I still need the short haired version too. However, Mattel said that wave 2 will be hitting retail again in mid November. This will be case that includes the modern Firestorm. Hopefully, the short hair Aquaman will be in most cases instead of the long haired version.

    Wave 1 and 3 seem to be easy to find around my area (I have wave 3 extras if you want any).

    Saw the Titanium Prowl and Grimlock at TRU Westheimer yesterday. First time I've seen em. Hid one of each behind the Transformers Chess Sets. Don't think I'll be back to that TRU anytime soon.

    Saw 2 Ultra Magnus at Pearland Target a month ago. Didn't pick them up because the boxes were beat up. I've never seen them again. The swoops seem to be pretty rare too.

    hey viderant, I saw 1 ultra magnus at that target 1.5 weeks ago, the bottom corner of the box was a little dented so I left it. I haven't seen swoop there, just a bunch of sound waves and jazz, and they have tons of universe toys.
