    Last year, they went up Tuesday afternoon after the con. In the past, they had them up the Monday after. I have no idea what they're planning this year, but I'm sure the word will get out before it goes live.

    Saw Optimus Maximus at K-Mart on Mayfair Rd. in Wauwatosa. Bigger than I expected.

    Thanks to everyone who sounded off on Airachnid earlier, I found her at Wal-Mart and decided to pull the trigger. Target would've wanted $15 for her, but I felt a little more comfortable at Wal-Marts price.

    She's... not great. I don't outright hate her and I don't regret buying her but it's definitely disappointing especially after just getting the Vehicon a wave earlier. I hate how fembots always have to have open hands rather than fists, it makes Airachnid look like she's trying to do the robot. That said, weapons are cool and I think the helicopter mode has a certain charm to it. She's not a POS but under no circumstances should you pay more than retail for her.

    Better than ordering from BBTS and paying sales tax and shipping!

    I ordered one. I won't be getting the SDCC set nor will I be paying $15 a pop at retail though.

    I found Dead End at my local walmart on monday. he was the only one left so I grabbed him without hesitation! what was kinda funny was that I noticed him right when I was far from the Tf shelves. Thats how colorful he is!

    Of the three FoC color schemes, I think I like the SDCC the best followed by the standard colors, which is unfortunately backwards price wise.

    Looking at the images from SDCC, I'm already feeling the wallet lighten. I'm even considering picking up two of the Hasbro MP-10s.

    The more pictures I see of that Bruticus,the more it just looks like an over-sized Power Core Combiner......which isn't good.

    Agreed. But the more I see some of the Voyagers though, the more I'm sold. That Soundwave, Blaster, Ultra Magnus and Grimlock look pretty damn cool.

    I also plan on grabbing 2 for myself (assuming it's not too much more than ~$100ish). If I see more than that, I'd be happy to pick it up for cost+tax/shipping.
