    There is a new TRU in Willow Bend Mall (Park and Tollway). Yes, that's right, Willow Bend Mall. It is called TRU Holiday Express. It looks more like an overstock store but did have the Bugs and Eyeglass exclusives.

    I found the new RPM's at Target in Frisco.

    If I don't get on here before Thanksgiving. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and go Cowboys!!!

    The Denton Wal-Mart off of 35 still has about 15+ MP Skywarps as does the Corinth Walmart on Swisher as of yesterday if anyone is still looking.

    Also, if anyone collects the DC Classics figs, Corinth Walmart had about 2 cases of the wave 10 exclusive figs yesterday as well as of about 5pm.

    A couple people here in Houston have found some. Its a nice toy but nothing like the OG Megazord. I wish Bandi would reissue the original '93 zords.

    Just picked up a MP Skywarp at the Walmart on 45N in Spring... Two left there now. Man, I'm glad to be back home for Thanksgiving... My local WM in Michigan hasn't seen a single Skywarp yet, and here it's one stop shopping...

    First post / sightings today

    Since I had the day off, the mission today was to find a burning Fallen and see what else I could fine.

    Targets:
    @151/410 - had about 8 left... on the end cap towards the sports stuff. also Leo Prime
    @410/Fred Rd - none - not too much to look at.. nothing new
    @Blanco/410 - none - again, not too much there... nothing new
    @281/Bitters - none - picked up voyager prime... been holding out on this guy
    @1604/culebra - none - nothing new

    BUT, since I haven't collected since I was a kid, everyone of the Targets did have something different frpm the Animated Series. I have not seen any of the animated series, but my question is, are these guys worth collecting? Just throwing it out there.

    Walmarts:
    @military/410 - a bunch of Voyager ROTF (no long haul, no starscream)... bunch of Deluxe too...
    @410/evers - forget it.. nothing
    @281/Jones Maltsburger - a bunch of deluxe, about 20 MP Skywarps, saw 1 voyager Starscream
    @1604/Bandera - about 20 MP Skywarps, about 3 Megatron Leader with Camshaft
    @1604/Potranco - bunch of Deluxe and Voyager... but same ole stuff

    TRU:
    410/Blanco - No ROTF, a bunch of universe 29.99 figures... sorry dont know much about these guys yet

    Just doing my part for the day.

    First, off WELCOME to TFW2005! The Animated series is pretty cool. I was skeptical at first, but these guys are pretty darn novel and very well done. If you are going to collect this series you can get GREAT deals in the Junkion (here on TFW) from other members trying to sale their collections. They are wrapping up this series next year as the Animated Cartoon only lasted 3 seasons (I think) before being concluded. The last cool figures have just now started being released.

    You NEED to get to know this line (referred to as Universe 2.0/Classics) and it's precursory line CLASSICS. It's essentially an update/reimagining of the original G1 series. Checkout the TFW2005 'Resources' section up top to get yourself up to speed a little quicker. Hope this helps.

    Have not lived here in a while (just visiting), but the WM near Denton Tap/Round Grove Rd. in the southern outskirts of Lewisville had a bazillion MP Skywarps on an endcap and multiples of almost all of DCUC 10 except Batman, Joker, and Manbat (the latter of which I am seeking for a friend). I also hit the Lewisville TRU and found nothing worth noting. Has anyone seen the TRU Insecticons? Also, the Target near MacArthur and 635 in Irving had many of all of the exclusives previously mentioned on a back endcap. Happy hunting!

    Hot damn! I got all excited until I figured out where that is. I've only ever seen a few of those Megatrons and never for that cheap. Oh, well...

    Thanks, Megaprime! A quick update! I managed to snag an Insecticons set from the TRU in Irving near that 635 Target I previously mentioned. They had a bunch of both reissues. They were also gearing up for this weekend it looked like 'cause they had a ton of TFs on the shelves and boxes and boxes into the rafters.

    Holy Crap, how much was it btw!? if you could remember...

    Welcome fellow SA'er! don't forget to hit the Wal Mart at 10 and Dezavala, they usually have some good hits every now and then, that is where i was able to get ROTF Jetfire when he first came out.
