Anyone got any leads on the classics line? I still need a few of them (Grimlock, Rodimus, Astrotrain, and the ever elusive Soundwave).


I picked up Grimlock at a KB Toys outlet in Vero Beach last weekend. Paid the inflated KB price of $12.99 but it's a lot better than the prices on eBay.

Rodimus I just recently got off eBay for $2.25.


Yeah that is better than the Grimlock prices on ebay, all the ones on my watch list are anywhere from 20$ to 30$ at the moment, and that doesn't include shipping. How many Grimlocks did they have there?

Wow you got lucky with that Rodimus, was he sealed or opened? The lowest one I've seen was 9.99$ but that quickly went up.


I haven't received it yet but it's supposed to be sealed NIB. I think a lot of people were scared because the dude has 0 feedback but he accepted Paypal and that was good enough for me. Seems like a nice enough guy so far.

Ah ok, well either way that's a heck of a deal. By the way, did you happen to see if they had any other Grimlocks at that KB outlet?

Been to two K-marts, Target, four Wal-marts, and Toys R Us. I didn't see any Arcees, Bumblebees, or whatever the plane is.

I've seen plenty of Arcees in the Target in Vero. They had 3-4 of both versions, scout and deluxe.

I get most at Wal-mart cause that's where I go all the time, but I love going to Target because they ALWAYS have something the other stores don't.

Has anyone spotted the newest wave of movie toys anywhere around central Florida? I've been trying the find the new Bumblebee, Final Battle Jazz, Dropkick (I think he's supposed to be out at least), Longarm and Arcee with no luck.

First off~

Barricade, I love you. Very much. Thanks for living in Florida :D


Second, I'm gonna start keeping my eyes out for you all when I go to stores around here (I live in Deltona and freiquently make visits to the Orlando area) for special finds in stores.

I personally have wanted to see the new Arcee, I can't seem to find her anywhere.

I was lucky enough to buy the last Barricade about three or four weeks ago at the Target in DeLand, and my mother bought Bumblebee for my brother about six weeks ago (I didn't quite know how rare he was since I didn't care to look for him and my brother already had him)

So yes, I'll keep my eyes out and I'll continue to check back here to see what you all are looking for :D

P.S. I'm gonna be in Jacksonville for the rest of this week and the next (till the 19th)

After that I'm gonna start checking the stores back home in Deltona!

Found!!! Ultimate Bumblebee @ Target

Postby bumble_bee_68 » Sat Aug 11, 2007 12:15 pm

Yep. It's mine. Awesome. Just bought one last night (Aug. 10th) for $76.31 :grin: Not too bad. I did a custom paint job on the bare gray robot parts showing. Looks much better now....OK...I get a discount b/c I work at Target...so....I get first, sometimes second dibs on ANY TF merchandise coming to the sales floor. Sometimes it comes out after the store closes, or mid-day, when they push toys. I will post any new TF stuff on the TF sightings post for information...

That sucks D:

I'm still waiting on a deluxe 08 BB. I want him to go with my deluxe barricade, so that when I play Pretty Handsome Awkward I can drive them around like a happy little fangirl.
