Motto: "I’m the rising sun, I’m the new tomorrow, I’m the skull on the gun, I’m the song of sorrow; I’m the thirteenth arrow, I’m the wisest owl, I’m a soul-eating predator, I’m on the prowl"
Weapon: Energo-Sword
Always check your local 5Below for discount deals. Just found a wheelbarrow full of early wave Bot Shots and tail end wave of Prime Legion class for 3 dollars. Picked up a Hyperspeed Wheeljack; the Marlboro redeco; for myself. They also have the Bot Shots launchers for 5 bucks as well as the Avengers flip changers.

Weapon: Concussion Rifle
Question for anyone that hunts for toys at Local TRU, Target and Walmart. When do they restock the shelves? Do they do so in the mornings? Whenever I visit a TRU I would see a new wave less the figure I'm looking for. I usually go at night after work.
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

Anyone have those DCPIs for Springer and Blitzwing? Please. I cannot find them on and noone in the stores have them. But someone on the forums has them because they've mentioned locating their's through them. Please share with the rest of us.

I always keep a pretty tight watch on the Hasbro online shopping site, Smokescreen Prime Beast Hunters Deluxe just popped back in stock. He has been sold out for a while and been hard to find. Get him if you have been looking before they disappear again.

Mooncake623 asked when TRU, Target, and WalMart restock. It has been my experience that in the Daytona Beach, Fl area TRU and Target restock the morning after the truck arrives. All the WalMarts in my area are 24 hr and they restock around 2am. All you have to do is figure out what day of the week the truck comes in. Sometimes the staff will be helpful and tell you. Sometimes they will tell you they are not allowed to give that information out.

I see the guy above this post only ever wrote that one post, guess this was not the site for him.

Anyway, one of the best tips I can give collectors is to check their local thrift shops and salvation army outlets. You will almost never find a complete transformer there (I never did) but its a great place to find parts and placeholders. There is a junk market not too far from where I am which I visit once a month, and its made up of a bunch of small stalls where people sell the junk they find. I was able to find a nearly complete ROTF Leader Megatron for 5$ and a 90% complete Leader Deep Dessert Brawl for 10$.
Latest TFs: MP 10, Platinum Predaking and a huge original G1 lot (Optimus Prime, Springer, Grimlock, Slugslinger, Silverbolt, Skydive, Sharkticon, Thrust, Topspin, and Scorponok with Lord Zarak)
