Hey Baha08,

Any chance you've got a picture of the FOC Ruination figures on the shelves or a receipt for them? We need to find some picture proof of these out at retail so that we can make a news story for this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D

Okay Titan Class Metroplex has finally hit the Orange County area in Fountain Valley to be exact. I called the Tustin store and they were able to see that Fountain Valley got their shipment first. It looked like there were more than 25 on the palate at the 11 o'clock hour...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Has any of our California members spotted the Platinum Edition G1 Insectcons set? Looks like it was spotted recently at a K-Mart in Commerce, CA. If you see this set, please send a picture to Sightings@Seibertron.com and you can also post it in this thread to let your fellow collectors out there know it is hitting shelves.

Picked up a Combiner Wars G1 Megatron at the Oceanside Wal-Mart (near the 5 and 78 off of Jefferson). There was still an CW Armada Megatron there when I left. I also saw an Armada Megatron at the Toys R Us across the street...

Could you email the file you were trying to upload to ryan@seibertron.com

I have never been able to duplicate this error. The max file size is 10MB which should be more than sufficient.

Head ups to all my Bay Area, San Francisco/Peninsula Seibertron Fam.
Target in Serramonte Mall, Daly City has 2 CW Megatrons and 1 CW Armada Megs.
Target in 280 Colma shopping center has 6 CW Megatrons and 5 CW Armada Megs.
Weird seeing G1 style Megs outnumbering the Armada's.
Maybe the Cali Megatron drought is over!

For those of you in San Jose, there's a new toy store in Japantown next to Minato called Zonkey (621 N. 6th St, San Jose). Small store with a lot of Pop, Kidrobot, Neca, and Marvel. Not much as for Transformers, saw some SDCC stuff like the Rock 'N Roll one (don't know what that's called). Did see a MISB G1 Soundwave (I think reissue). Might be worth it to check out if you're in the area as they buy/sell/trade. You never know what you might see!
