Nothin' in Orillia.
I'm glad though that Peterborough is getting the wave 2s.
Thanks for posting (it keeps hope alive).

String of updates here: Wal-Mart restocked and I picked up Rodimus, Bumblebee, and Mirage (no Grimlock), as well as Megatron. Also picked up the $40 Primus at Toys'R'Us.

I don't know why Dark Knight doesn't like Mirage, because he's fantastic, he's up there for one of my favorite characters. He's slick looking, and super-posable. I love it!

Down_Shift wrote:So, the last big news was Zed and Beastwarrior (sorry man, not doing the numbers :P ) finding Primus for $40. BTW, there is quite a funny story about this, I'll post it a little later.


I wouldn't mind hearing that story :P .

I'm waiting for Primus' price to go lower. They don't seem to be moving at the Brossard TRU.

Nothing new to report, TF-wise, at the Brossard Wal-Mart.

Thanks, I picked up Jetfire there, but they were out of the other two. I found them at Sheridan Place Zellers. There's still an extra Grimlock left, for anyone looking.

No new classics in Orillia.

Both Walmart and Zellers have their toy sections are torn apart right by the TFs but no new stock.

(looks at post count) Welcome to Seibertron.com!
(looks at joined date) Oh crap!

No new TFs on the South Shore of Montreal, but I did contact Legends Action Figures, and they said that they are expecting a shipment of TFs soon, including more Classics. I asked them about Ultra Magnus and Skywarp, I think that they are expecting them too. I'll report any further findings.

I went around a few places today...

TRU Mississauga - no new Titaniums... They had a huge stack of Primus for $40. They had the first wave of the classics LOC. They had all the stuff that's been out for a while. They also had quite a few Tarantulas toys...

BTW - they also had the 12" Marvel Legends Icons from Hasbro (Thor and Wolverine). I picked up Thor.

Zellers Square One - Not much.

Zellers Walmart - Not much... They had lots of the 3" Titaniums up to the series with Galvatron and Rodimus...

South Common Walmart - They had the series 2 classics out. At least two of each. They had all the 3" Titaniums.

Overall nothing worth writing about, nowhere had the new 6" Titanium Soundwave or Rodimus...

We better have more sightings, I had to rescue this topic from many pages back. :)

sq.1 walmart has

2 pack Classics Optimus vs. Megatron with dvd

i picked it up, brought it home, hoped to be thrilled by it.

my god i was soooooo disappointed in the figures.

prime's punch action was horrible......it only made his waist spin and spin and spin. it doesn't even lock in place.

just picture it this way. you pose your prime but from the waist up it turns to the right cuz it doesn't stay in place.
the plastic was horribly manufactured.....and the head sculpt looked wierd when you look through primes eyes. he looks like a japanese bunny with those anime type eyes.

meg's was some what bette. a little more sturdy but fell apart all over. he didn't lock in place sometimes and his spinning action on his arm.....kept popping off.
again....cheap plastic and didn't hold in place.

now for the dvd..........WHAT A WASTE OF $33.

the dvd that came with this set was merely a cut and paste of clips from Armada, Engeron, and Cybertron. it was just prime talking about what are transformers, where they come from, the factions, why they transform......VERY VERY VERY BORING.
i was expecting like a Robot Masters clip. something new and different but incorporated Transformers Classic line of figures.
let's put it this way. it looks like something you can put together using Window's Movie Maker.

honestly.....this is a set to avoid. just horrible!

I agree with everything you said mesh ;)^

I kept mine though, just for the sake of having it. I do like Megs' tank mode, he'll probably never transform ever again. Optimus will never spin again!!! The DVD is at the bottom of my collection.

I was Agincourt Mall (Sheppard/Kennedy) last week, there wan't much, an opened Primus, 3 Classics Optimus, 12 Titanium Hot Rods, 7 Titanium Thundercrackers, 1 Classic Bumblebee, and a few SWTFs...think I saw Jango Fett, didn't pick him up.

I just ordered Ramjet and Mirage from Kooltoyz. They've also got Cliffjumper and Grimlock listead as in-stock. I mention them because they're a Canadian retailer. They have an $8.99 (can) flatrate shipping, which works out better if you order more since you're paying the same.

I've purchased a couple of things from them so far, and have had excellent service:

Well the last Astrotrain is gone from the Brossard TRU, so maybe they'll finally restock Classics. Jetfire and Mirage will be mine!

Hey, what's up with the Legends of Classics? They're a full dollar more expensive than Legends of Cybertron!

Just picked up Classics Jetfire and Titanium Soundwave at TRU (not sure if Jetfire's been sighted there yet...). Jetfire rocks, a fine way to end the line for me. Soundwave's about the same as most Titanium's, cool looking, but some problems. My biggest problem is getting his legs to stay straight in robot mode. I really dig the tape deck mode though (then again, I've never had a tape deck Soundwave, so this is new for me). Laserbeak's underwhelming at best.

Well, wave 2 has FINALLY hit the west coast. I saw Mirage and Grimlock at Zellers in Langley and the Langley TRU has a couple of Mirages. Still no fickafrackin' Jetfires tho...

Haven't seen any of the new titaniums yet. The $40 Primus is still rocking steady at all of the TRU in the LowerMainland. Any other tf hunters in the Vancouver area let me know whats around in your neck of the woods.

On a side note I have a few Magnus vs. Skywarp Packs for sale. PM me if you're interested. or just look here:

I haven't seen them, nor Wave II regular Classics, in Quebec yet. Damn, I want my Jetfire and Mirage!!

EDIT: Ramjet, Mirage, Grimlock, and Cliffjumper are now at Legends Action Figures in Montreal! I haven't visited them since before Christmas, I better head on down there soon!

I picked up some of the wave 2 minicons at the Brampton TRU. Other than that, they had the usual wave 1 & 2 things, plus a million of Primus.

On Cybertron.ca, they're saying Ramjet and Cliffjumper are at various Walmarts (Sherway Gardens and one in London)... I may check around over the next few days...

Booyeah! Classics Wave II has reached southern Quebec!

TheTouch and I went to the Brossard TRU, where we found Mirage, Jetfire, and Wave 2 Mini-Cons. I guess someone else grabbed the last Grimlock. I got Skyfire and Mirage, I'm happy! :grin:

I found the Predator and Clear Skies teams at TRU yesterday in Saint John, but the third of the wave 2 teams was nowhere to be found. Did they sell out super fast, or were they shortpacked, or what? Anyone else having trouble finding them?
