Bit of an odd sighting tonight. North riverside toys r us had 2 cases of voyager first edition prime figures. Cliffjumper looked like the original edition and not the terrorcon version.

I saw a lone First Edition Cliffjumper amidst several FE Bumblebees and Starscreams at the Golf Mill Toys R Us in Niles. There was also 1 each left of Beast Hunters Weaponizers Beast Tracker Optimus Prime and Talking Bumblebee. Go get 'em before the store closes tonight!

I still function :lol: Get it? Get it?

Last word of anything I have had to report was on Aug 25th when I wandered into the Schererville, IN Walmart and found the IDW figs waiting for me at 11pm or so.

From other friends in the area, Merrillville TRU has had MP Acid Storm and Soundwave pop in a couple times recently as well.

Whats up Ryan?

The Target downtown on State street is apparently clearancing its very small selection of Predicons Rising stuff. I got the Abominus box for $16 on Saturday. They had a few Sky Linxes, the Smokescreen/beast Cyberverse two pack and a couple of regular Beast Hunters figures, all on clearance. The deluxes are $11 if I recall.

Well that's some what good news since I now have to replace 7 of my Autobot deluxe classics. Got home from work today to find my dog chewed up a bunch of my favorites, including the new IDW hoist and a few recent ebay acquisitions.

It was my own fault for leaving them out, but he has never taken any interest in my action figures before.

The TRU in Deerfield has (as of Saturday) two MP Acid Storms and like two or three of the Jetwing OPs. I don't know if anyone is interested in that Prime for Black Friday, but that's one place to find them.

When I was there, they had two TC and 3 or 4 Hounds. Note that there are some on an end cap in the "main aisle" as well. I think I got the only Rescue Bots Blades/Boulder mini-guys.

I picked up the new Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Hound Contructbots at the Yorktown Target last night. Thanks for the heads up Hip-Hoptimus! Now I'm keeping my eyes open for the new IDW figures now out.

You are some kind of wizard. I strolled into my local TRU (Downers Grove, Butterfield Rd) this morning on your tip and bam, a couple each of all 4 were there, 12.99. Bought Skids and Dreadwing. Thanks wizard oh wise!

At the Bloomingdale Toys R Us, I found 3 new Constructbots, Silverbolt, Cliffjumper, and Breakdown. I don't believe these have been found anywhere else, Have they?

Found Waspinator and Skids today at Downers Grove Toys R Us on 75th st. A friend at my LCS found the new series at the Target in New Lenox too.

I've gotten Dreadwing and Goldbug from different targets in the area. I love that they were only 9.99.

I just was not seeing any of these guys at the Targets I've gone to, even asked if there were any in back. At least I have the ones I wanted.

Realy super-jonesing for the new Legends 2-packs and the new Deluxes, like Scoop.

Around 9:30am, there was 1 Skids and 1 Goldfire remaining at Rosemont Target. None at Golf Mill Target. Jackpot at Golf Mill Toys R Us in Niles. Waspinator and Dreadwing were at last mine. I left behind at least a couple each of Goldfire, Dreadwing, and Skids. No more Waspinators though.

Happy hunting!

Hey everybody. The other day I got Planet X's Caelus, which we all know is "Swoop," and it is without a doubt a bad ass figure. But it's got me wondering. Planet X has got some great people making these 3rd party figures so why not make some bots with other, not done before, dinosaur alt modes. Would I be the only on out there interested in such things?

The snow has kept me from looking recently :-( , but I did find the last few deluxes from the Skids/Goldbug wave in different stores on New Year's eve, and I did find construct bots Dead End at the Randell road Toys R Us. Oh, and I found some Armada and RID stuff at Quake West. so i'm happy about that :D .
