    Thanks. I kind of thought you were a MISB dude but I know Otis sure as heck isn't. He usually has the package halfway open at the checkout counter to make sure there are no missing or broken peices. I have checked out some of the online reviews but just wanted to get some other opinions from the locals.

    Thanks dude! I just finished my post then saw yours. Sounds like a winner.

    I will probably post some new collection shots soon since I finished my basement and have a hobby room with new shelves. Unfortunately I have to share the room with my wife for her scrapbooking stuff:( .

    r.lo do you keep everything MISB? I used to a long time ago until Otis made me jealous of his opening ways and I became weak. I now just keep rare/exclusive figs MISB. Speaking of weak my 5 year old talked me into finally opening up my HA Skids. Man he is awesome!

    Temporary price reduction going on at Target. Voyagers are $19.99 and deluxes $9.99. Not a lot but 2 bucks is still something. Also at the Jordan Landing Target saw one Lockdown and a Brawn on the endcap display. There's also some Bludgeons and Recon Ironhides on the shelf for anyone that has yet to pick them up.

    I do. Although, I buy duplicates of any figure I take a particular interest in.

    I really question why I collect sometimes. As I buy Transformers to keep MSIB, I throw them in a pile in my basement, then later, when the line is complete, box them up for storage. Once the box is sealed, I never see them again. I guess we all need hobbies. <shrugs>

    No Arcee, as predicted, at the Murray TRU.

    A few Legends Devastators at the 53rd and Redwood Walmart. They're in the clearance aisle, but still at $32. And lots of the NEST 2-pack BB/Soundwave.

    Devy is awesome, but man, at the price of almost a Leader, I expected more out of him.

    Arcee is gone... that is my prediction. :cry 

    I know Devy is a little $$, but for me it is worth it, he's just the right size to haunt my office at work, in his various forms. (without attracting too much attention.) Maybe I'll post pics sometime. :cool:

    Hey Utah neighbors! Just dropped by to see whats new in you areas and 'evesdropped' on the Animated/TRU conversation...Here at the Boise TRU, they initially had the deluxes out about 3 weeks ago, which is when I got mine. They all sold out annd I didn't see them again until last week. Not saying it'll be the same pattern but hopefully it'll give you guys a little hope that TRU will restock again!

    I like to buy doubles too and keep one in the box but sometimes it gets a little pricey, especially with leader class figures and up! The first movie line I bought doubles of everything but the last movie I just got doubles of favorites/exclusives.

    The Layton Target reflected the sale as well. At least they did back when I spotted Mindwipe there a few days ago.

    At north logan walmart. They had at least two, their deluxes are overstocked on the pegs.

    I just realized HE's the one that goes on top of that stealth jet! I likes him.
    I would pick him up for myself, but I spent my TF budget already this month on Lil' Devs.

    Lemme know if you don't find him around you. I could go back and pick em up for you with reimbursement.

    Someone returned a Premium Series Prime from the first movie to the Jordan Landing Wal-Mart. Ah, it's been a long time since I've seen him around. :)

    I appreciate the offer! I just picked him up from the Wal-Mart on 54th and Redwood, though.
