    As a WI resident, I generally prefer TFSource due to the free shipping and no sales tax, but BBTS has some good sales from time to time, so I tend to keep a small pile of loot ongoing over there and ship it out every few months.

    I also like HLJ for TT MP's. The last package I shipped via EMS arrived at my Madison office door in 3 days. From Japan. Shipping cost was reasonable too.

    Just saw Leader Skywarp at Madison West Target last night if anyone's still looking. No new CW figs there, just a few Ironhides and some CW Legends. :(

    Corner lots are what Southerners buy when they move to the North! At least it's that way in my Verona neighborhood. :D

    And yesterday I was in Target on Chase in Milwaukee. Blast Off, Brawl, Vortex, no Swindle.

    I'm starting to feel like an idiot. I'd have them all by now.

    Hey there, been a while since I've been on here, but I found a Scattershot and a lone Onslaught at Delafield Walmart. Three lone scattershots remain.

    Careful there. This Scattershot is part of "Betatron." Whoever that is. In May-ish, I believe, there will be a Computron box set. I'd wait for that one so you don't have to double-dip.

    There was one at a Target in California way back around Christmas I think but that could've been an outlier or else a hoax. Good to see they're coming our way.

    It's ridiculous how empty the store shelves in and around Milwaukee have been since Christmas. I hear reports of people elsewhere in the country seeing shelves literally overflowing with new Star Wars Black Series and the Absorbing Man wave of Marvel Legends, or the new Combiner Wars Voyagers for that matter. No such luck around here, not by a long shot.

    Mattel and Bandai are having no problem getting plastic on pegs - new Power Rangers and new DC Universe stuff, but all I'm finding is dust where Hasbro's stuff should be. I want to give you my money, Hasbro, but you're making it really difficult!

    Yup the Walmart by my house has only that Rid G1 styled Grimlock. The rest of the pegs are completely empty.. :/ it's been like that for what feels like forever.

    I usually don't bother with stores until the February after Christmas. I'm sure it takes a while for them to inventory all their stuff and place orders for new stuff. Not to mention all the returns messing everything up too.

    Wausau Walmart is pretty sorry. No CW deluxes, still 7 Silverbolts along with 1 lonesome CW LC Armada Megatron!

    It seems like every time I go into a store, the Transformers section keeps getting smaller and smaller. Sure they dedicated all this extra space for Star Wars stuff, but that seems pretty pointless since most of those pegs are empty also, especially at Targets, which are completely barren.

    Saw the new Robots in Disguise Warrior Class Fracture at the Toys R Us on Brown Deer Rd in Milwaukee. Looks kind of cool, but they want $17 for it and that's asinine. The faceplate-less version of Megatron and Blizzard Strike Optimus were also there.

    Thanks for the tip, I went and grabbed one last night.

    Also, if anyone is interested, they have a couple CW Motormasters and a bunch of CW white Optimus, and they're marked down to $10.
