    I'm going to have to piggyback on this question. I'm headed to La Crosse this Friday for a couple days with the family and would love to know as well...

    This won't help a all, but I asked the same question a couple months back and there didn't seem to be an answer. I didn't go searching while I was there, either. Hopefully, someone in the area has an answer for you guys.

    Appleton Tru has Plat Grimlock and Magnus sets. What kind of chrome paint is Grim painted with? Flaky stuff or the kind that lasts? Just wondering if anyone knows.

    I just found two of them at a west side Target store. Is $25.00 a decent price for a set? These figures look quite small.

    Its a pretty good price considering the toys go for $6+ when sold individually.

    Metroplex was at TRU Madison yesterday. I picked him up for $129.99. However, I had some coupons to get him for much less. He was on a end cap where the transformers were located in the back. There was only 1 that I saw. Not sure when they will get more or how many.

    You could also just wait for the inevitable clearance on them. They're just shelf-warming up here.

    You'll have to let us know what you think of him. I've heard he has some issues like electronics that don't work and stickers that won't stay stuck. I'm holding off on getting him until I can get a good deal on one.
