They've also got a GDO Wheelie and some FE SSs and Arcees. But I just bought the four Combaticons they had. No Vortex though.

Walgreens in Des Plaines, River Rd and Oakton, had a TFP Vehicon and 2 Airachnids. They're in a stand-alone kiosk near the front. $14.99 too, IIRC, not bad. Walgreens is usually way more expensive than other retailers. FWIW.

The other day the Skokie Target had one Voyager Thudertron and one Voyager Ultra Magnus. I didn't buy them, but they may have been bought during the black Friday madness.

Happy Thanksgiving / Black Friday weekend everyone!

Just wanted to let you guys know that the Aldis in Des Plaines had about a 1/2 dozen Vehicons still as of this afternoon.

The Target in Arlington Heights on Rand had an Ultra Magnus and Thundertron around 3pm as well as a ton of Rescue Bots (all 8 versions) in the main aisle and then on one of the back end caps at the end of the toy section toward the back of the store. If you've been on the fence about them, today's a great day to buy them at $7.99 a piece.

OK, Toys for Tots time! Target in Villa Park has DOTM Deluxe 2-packs for $10. They are apparently paired thusly:

-Bumblebee/Air Raid (green AWACS jet)
-Nitro Bumblebee/Thundercracker
-Sideswipe/Armor Topspin
-Starscream/Roadbuster

I did not see these sets at the two other nearby Targets I visited tonight, but I'm sure they'll hit. Off you go then, be generous!

No TFP FE Voyagers at TRU in Downers Grove this morning at 8:00.

Please post your sightings of these guys! The BOGOHO sale ends on the 8th IIRC!

I saw these last night at my local Target in Crestwood. It was only a few, so I figured it was dead stock. With your sighting I now know its stock to make us dead.

I think I got the best deal on the Kre-o microchangers.
They scanned both of the Kre-o in and got the 40% off and then got the free Kre-o coupon off.
$1.72 with tax.
Plus, the TRU in Orland Park has First Edition Terrorcon Cliffjumper.

Amazon has DOTM Leader Jetwing Optimus Prime for $75 w/ free shipping, until 6:00pm Chicago time, a lightning deal. Down from $99.

Kind of sorry to report this, but the Ross in Niles on Touhy has/d Prime figures. They had a Thundertron, Ultra Magnus and Knockout. They don't have them any longer, as I bought them.
They do however still have some Voyager Starscreams, one Vehicon that I saw, a Wheeljack and two Bumblebees. Also some random Botshot stuff.
Like I said, I bought the good stuff, but at least it means that the Prime guys are showing up at cheap places around us.

Anyone still looking for a complete Fall of Cybertron Bruticus, the Niles Walmart @ 8500 Golf Road had all 5x Combaticons as of 0200 this morning and 2x Jazz.

No new Prime voyagers, just Starscream.

Just swung by the TRU in Peoria. Several FOC Soundwave and the Ravage/Rumble Frenzy/Ratback packs. Also several Beast Hunters. Multiple Soundwaves, Laserbacks, Wheeljacks, and one Bumblebee.

Not sure if these are still 'new' or not. :P
