Prime toys are starting to show up!

Bowmac TRU has the Entertainment pack for a whoping $44.99, while Langley TRU has the deluxes. No word on the price on those but it's probably similar to the other lines.

Anyone know where I can pick up a copy of Timelines #6 ? My LCS didn't get it, no other store has it, and I can't assume it's just gonna show up at my LCS sometime down the road.

Just a single issue? I dunno, online might be your only option. I have trouble finding TF stuff at local comic shops too... Golden Age or Metropolis *might* have it, but that's a long way to go for a single issue. I'd call beforehand. Though I guess you can check Metropolis firsthand at Metrocon. :)

I called Metropolis and Golden Age, along with Hourglass. None of them have any copies left. I might order it from Golden Age, but I'll wait till the weekend.

Yeah. You'd think if they were doing a convention, they'd order a bunch of copies.

So I go down to Hourglass last night to order a copy of Timelines, knowing I won't find it anywhere else, and it turns out he did have a copy, but was saving it for someone else. Well, according to them, this person hadn't been in for a while, so they decide to give me his copy and order up a new one of the the other guy.

So I got it. :)

Nice, that's awesome!

Did I mention that the Prime deluxes are showing up at TRUs everywhere? Looks like I didn't. There should still be some in stock, but Arcees are going the quickest. TRU Express does not seem to be stocking Prime figures, at least not yet.

I'm not really interested in the Prime figures. I'm more interested in finding Wheeljack.

^$#*! And here's life deciding to throw obstacles at me to keep me from going. Bugger all.

Any chance, if you still have it, you can drop by there tomorrow so I can buy it?

Sorry, I won't be able to tomorrow, but if you want to meet another time I can. Most days next week should work for me I think.

I work during the week, so the latest I'll be able to get down there is next Saturday...hopefully without any screwups this time.

Just pm me with a couple days' notice if you think you can make it out and I'll see what I can do. I can hold it for you if you're certain you'll buy it. :)

All right. But I do have one thing to clarify that I didn't think about before.

When I said I was more interested in finding Wheeljack, I meant Dark of the Moon Wheeljack, not Generations Wheeljack. He's the one you have, right?

#-o Nope, Generations Wheeljack. Well, good thing you didn't come all the way out for nothing then. :lol: I figured you wanted the Generations one since DOTM Wheeljack isn't out yet anywhere.

I didn't know that DOTM Wheeljack wasn't out yet, but I Saw Wave 5 at Coquitlam Centre Zellers about a month ago, and assumed he was coming sooner or later.

Guess we don't really need to bother about that, then. :)

True, wave 5 did come out recently. I dunno, I was going to say their release schedule seems pretty wonky, but I don't think they really stick to any sort of schedule here. It's just...whenever they finally get rid of enough shelfwarmers to make space for new stuff.

Well, TRU seems to be clearing out DOTM deluxes at Bowmac at least, so here's hoping.

Allegedly, the Kup/Warpath/Wheeljack Deluxe wave hit the Walmart in Dix-30 in Brossard on Montreal's South Shore. The day after they were sighted, only 'Jack remained. 2 Wheeljacks, $8 each. Not bad!

The Brossard TRU has plenty of Prime Deluxe figures. Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, and Starscream are in ample supply, but there are only about 2 Arcees left. No Voyagers yet.

Oh dude. I am jealous. The only Prime figure I've been able to pick up so far is the pink Arcee from the NYCC pack. I want CJ and Bulkhead so bad. =P~

Surprisingly enough we got the newer Generations figs for cheap too, at least before the vultures descended upon them. Luckily (?) for me, I got them from BBTS long ago.

Me too. And according to my LCS, the last wave (featuring Sky Shadow and Junkheap) is showing up this week. Incidentally, I found wave 5 at the nearby Zellers @ Haney Place a few weeks back, making it the first time I've seen any Generations figures beyond Wave 3 anywhere outside of specialty stores.

Now, if Hasbro can get off their butts and get DOTM Wave 6 out there so I can get Wheeljack, I’d be happy as a clam.

I saw the Generation One Monopoly came at the Winners in Place Alexis Nihon in Montreal for $35, I think, marked down from $50. If you guys are looking for it, it might be a good idea to hit up a Winners or two. "You should go" indeed.
