    They might have some ROTF stuff, and if they do, it will probably be store exclusives or the hard to find ones. I doubt they'll have the latest ROTF figures like Jetfire though, but you never know unless you go and check it out.

    Yeah, it's about 3 hour drive for me too. However, I leave in the morning and I'm back home by early evening. I usually hit about 8 stores (4 Walmarts, 3 Targets, 1 ToysRUs) on the way there and back too. Fun times!

    When I went the year of the first movie, there was some guy trying to sell a regular movie BB for $35. I just said id wait for it at the store. They always have good deals on older SW lines and other toys.

    Don't know what's at Runamuck's TRU, but have you been to the Frisco TRU? Was there today and saw most of the stuff that isn't ROTF half off. All Animated (Except Voyagers, strangely enough. Scanner didn't show a discount anyway.) This includes ALL Leaders (only saw Bulkhead and Ultra Magnus, but didn't dig through everything), AND SUPREME ROLLOUT COMMAND PRIME! That's $50 worth of cool-ass toy now for $25! Wish I'd waited :( 

    Most Universe toys half off, too. As previously reported, no exclusives are discounted.

    Also saw some RPM 2-packs there. Didn't pick any up. I think I'd rather have the singles.

    Back from the collector's show, not much interesting in regards to the ROTF line, but there was a guy there who has a nice collection of Japanese Beast Wars, Energon and some G2 TFs that were decently priced. I got a Halo fig that I had been looking for and some hotwheels for a friend. Saw some SW stuff I liked but not enough dough. Then went to TRU where there was not a sale as others had talked about BUT they had dozens of Mudflaps/Trax variants and Ravages. They also had the TRU exclusive titaniums and next wave of Halo figs


    Almost forgot: I think the guy that does John Redcorn's voice was there too

    Dudes, I went to the Target RIGHT by Downtown Dallas, in front of the reddish building, and I found a TON of stuff I'd never seen before!

    *Deluxe - RAVAGE, Chromia, Smokescreen, and Interrogator Barricade!
    *Voyager - Mixmaster, Ratchet(Desert Tracker)
    *That Superion set thing... smaller than I expected...

    My girlfriend avoids Redcorn like the plague since she was offended he was charging 5 bucks for pictures.

    I didn't pick up alot of stuff this time, personally.

    Went byy Toys R Us by Katy Mills today and found the single RPMs. Picked up Optimus, Bumblebee, and Ratchet. Only two pack I want is Bumblebee Vs. Barricade. Seems like its time to start hunting for the Twins Ice Cream Truck, Jolt, Dead End, and Blazemaster.
