Target Rosemont had the same stuff they've had since the mighty thunder lizards roamed the planet, kings of all they surveyed- namely, a bunch of TFP Bumblebees and overpriced DOTM Deluxes.



Do you mean that Target exclusive ROTF Starscream? That thing's still kicking around? My local Target is awful for putting out way old stuff, but man, I haven't seen that SS in like seven or eight months.

That's the one, they had about 6 of them. If I still had my 07 Movie Deep Space Starscream I might be more interested in this one. Might just let it pass unless it goes below $10.

Walmart Villa Park had a couple TFP Hot Shots, Knock Outs, and Cyberverse Ironhides this morning. No FoC.

TRU in Burbank had a single FoC Optiums and Jazz, only picked up the Optimus. The packaging really stands out,

I usually don't this with TF's, but eventually after they've been out for a while and there's a sale/price cut, I want to get a second one to keep moc.

Anyone pre-order the game yet? I usually go through Amazon, but the bonus at Game Stop seems better.

You know, I've got both of the Target Starscreams and I never thought to put them up together. The ROTF one is not as shiney as the 07 was, it's much more of a dulled silver color. But, you probably know what kind of figure the ROTF Starscream is, so you'd know if you had more than a $10 interest in the Target one. I think it's a fine toy, but whatevs.
Conversely I guess, for me it's that trilogy Optimus. I've seen it on clearance for $22 or $23, but if it hit ten bucks, I'd buy it.

I got my Trilogy OP for 15, minus my 5% Redcard discount. I might have paid 20, but no way at 30.

I like the trailer a lot, great detail in trailer mode. I open it and stand it on end for armory mode. *shrug*

Just a heads up. FOC figures have started appearing in the Rockford area. Target on E.state has them out as does TRU, picked up Optimus and Shockwave.

Des Plaines Kmart had the TFP RID Weaponizers in stock this morning.

Rosemont Target is doing their reset this week. I had them pull a Bot Shots four pack for me today after getting tired of waiting for them to put them out.

Good to know, Ryan. The Yorktown Mall Target also seemed to be reset with FoC deluxes this evening, but no Shockwaves. They also had the TFP Weaponizers and the Bot Shots 4-pack. Rescue Bots seem to be on clearance or otherwise reduced, 9.99 IIRC. No Blades though, just OP, Bee, and Heatwave. Honestly...

Yeah, but the trailer is empty, right? I mean he doens't come with any weapons or stuff inside of it right? The price for that Prime has been too much for me considering it's a shifty looking deluxe and an empty plastic rectangle. I like the way it looks in vehicle mode, as a movieverse/G1 thing, and I think it's much more of a success in that regard than the 07 G1 repaints like Jazz. But still, it's been too much for me seeing what it is. But, yet again, clearanced at $10 or $12 and I'd buy it without thinking twice.
Glad you enjoy it, by the way. Not at all trying to mudsling about this toy, and I'm sorry if it comes across that way.

No worries. It is empty, no extra weapons come with it, not even a weapon for the Optimus fig. That's why I never would have paid $30. Keep an eye out for it, ever since I got mine at $15 I haven't seen any more at Target, and it's still $30+ at TRU.

Anybody seen Rescue Bots Blades around? At this point, I might pay up to $25 shipped, my boy's birthday is in less than 3 weeks and I want to get this for him. Thanks.

Walmart in Villa Park had a single TFA Shadow Blade Leader Megatron in their clearance section for $15, so I bought him. The box was rough but sealed, but the fig is mint. I'd forgotten what a good mold this is.

I'm still looking for a Rescue Bots Blades, I might trade this Megatron for him.

KMart in Des Plaines had a single TFP Cyberverse Ultra Magnus, which I bought. But rage not, fellow chillinoisians, for Target Rosemont, amazingly, had 3 of him plus a CV Ironhide. You go now!

Targets did their restocking to day on the prime line with Voyagers SS and BH, also the latest deluxe Vehicon wave. Finally saw and bought my first Vehicon at retail. I now own 2 of that particular version. There were lots of botshots, but since I don't follow that line the only thing that stood out was the matrix set. This is pretty much for the Oak Lawn and Crestwood Targets.

Out of the blue, stopped by the Delevan WI WalMart yesterday and found the Cyberverse Ultra Magnus.

Just an FYI, wife and I are moving north of the border- she accepted a research nursing position in Milwaukee- and will be hopping over to the Wisconsin sightings forum. Don't worry...I won't let any of that mental illness called "Packerfan" get into me...I will continue my steady diet of the Navy and Orange. Is there anyone I should watch out for up there on the Wis boards?

Good luck future CHEESE HEAD! JK! :grin:

Really good luck for you and the family up north. From my personal experience WI people have been most helpful. Just don't forget to drop us a line from time to time.

Walmart in Addison had one each of TFP Cyberverse Tailgate and Fallback, which I bought. Also had a couple of the single-packed Knockout.

I didn't buy him because I want the Energon Driller set with Knockout anyway. I heard that set is on clearance at some WMs but I haven't seen it yet, anybody seen it clearanced?

Just saw 2 MP Thundercrackers at the Toys R Us near the York town mall. I was one of the lucky ones to be able to order on-line so I didn't bother getting one.

LOL ...

I've been to that Walmart several times. My family and I go up to Lake Lawn in Delevan just a mile or two away from that Walmart for weekend getaways. Nice area. Nice Walmart.
