    Got this at Rose Hill Tuesday Morning:

    Pretty good quality for KOs, kinda like the good ones from 10 years ago. Also prefer the red and white deco to the original G1 with the sky blue Hotspot

    (Yes, they're mistransformed. They didn't come with instructions and I just guessed what bot and combined modes would look like)

    Baileys TRU had 2 MP Soundwaves. I snatched one and there was one more left there as of 11:15am this morning... My first Transformer since I stopped collecting almost 2 years ago. Haven't opened it yet or nothing but very excited!

    Congrats! Be very careful with Laserbeak/Buzzsaw's tailfins, and Ravage's middle back joint.

    Also: I highly recomend everyone catch Pixar's "Toy Story of Terror" on ABC (or online), there's a neat TF cameo that's a weird hybrid of Voltron/TF Gestalts with a very G1-esque head.

    Thanks man.. I will! I'll probably open it late tonight as I am busy all day today. I'll take pics and let you know my experience. haha. :thumb 


    Oh and by the way.. I snatched it for a total cost of $127 and some change! Since I had not shopped in a long time at TRU, they decided to email me last week a $10 coupon for any purchase of my choice... basically saying "we want you back, so here's a $10 coupon off your next purchase"... I was literally planning to buy a standard deluxe but saw MP Soundwave and I just couldn't resist! lol! plus the coupon sure helped!

    Congrats! Saw your thread over at the General section and didn't know you lived in the area. $127 is not bad for Bailey's since they keep jacking up their prices.

    And for people holding out for Abominus, the MD thread has sightings of him at clearance for $7 (70% off), so I hope stores around here will do the same soon.

    I found the Optimus Prime Kre-O customizer set at Winchester TRU. Their computer said there were 5 more in stock but there was no sign of them. I guess someone hid them somewhere. Kind of annoying.

    I will be in the store tomorrow looking for ironhide as he is the only one I still need; if they are not on the shelf I will put the employees' to work finding them. I know the GM and he owes me a few favors from when we used to work together when I lived in Winchester.

    Update:

    All five were found behind the monopoly game boxes in the board games section. Ironhide has been acquired and my set of six is complete. The other four are behind the two boxes of blind packs if anyone needs them. They are starscream, megatron, bumblebee, and soundwave.

    Military Highway TRU, as of this afternoon, saw the following:
    • Prime FE Starscream x 2
    • Prime FE Bumblebee x several
    • MP Acid Storm x 2
    • Kre-O Autobot HQ x 1 or 2
    • Weaponizer BH talking Bumblebe x 1(might be another but I know for sure there's 1)
    • Metroplex x 1
    • Generations Soundblaster, Blaster and others I didn't really pay attention: 1-2 of each
    Did not see Prime FE Cliffjumper.

    Last night at Greenbriar Target I saw 1-2 each BH Croc out, Arcee and Vertebreak. Still no sign of Night Shadow Bumblebee, Prowl and Cryofire Predaking.

    If you can't find him, there's always the re-color in the Target 2-pack.

    side note: I saw in the VA hisstank thread that someone found a new TRU express store this year. Keep your eyes peeled for those stores opening/coming soon, as they tend to start with a lot of weird/old stuff. Has anyone seen hints of a TRU express opening?

    Sterling west.

    Yea, the toy is garbage. I sold mine for 10 dollars and felt like I got a deal.
