My LCS, Amazing Fantasy Comics, in Frankfort had the new batch of Kreo micro changers. They were very helpful in pulling up the ID numbers for me on their computer so that I knew which figures I was picking up (screw you old lady Kup)

I was just at Quake Collectibles West in Schaumburg.
He had a G1 Fort Max that looked to be intact.

In other news, Target and TRU in Orland Park has the same figures up there since x-mas. So, nothing new in my area.

Target in Woodridge, 63rd St., had some of the new Constructbots, Silverbolt, etc. No Gens Deluxes, but the empty pegs had $9.99 tags on them.

Woohoo! Great news, thanks. I suppose the DPCI is the same as the previous waves, could you confirm for us? Thx again.

I did. I had just grabbed some new Spidey Marvel legends, so my toy purchase for the day was already over $100. Plus I am waiting to see how the Jiaxus figure looks with that mold.

If anyone is looking for the huge Beast Fire Predaking, the Target on Peterson between Western and Ridge has two of them on clearance for $14. I grabbed one last night; they're in the ramshackle toy clearance isle, not where the Transformers section has the clearance tag on the shelf for them.
He's really simple, and he has that typical Prime Predaking problem of having just chest and legs, like he pulled his pants up way too high, but he's really big, and I think he's pretty fun. Definately a great pick up for $14. I'd figured if I saw him for the $20 that people have been reporting I was going to buy him, but the deeper discount made him too good to pass on.

I hadn't seen the Kreo Combiners Piranacon, Abominus, and Defensor until this morning, on clearance at the Yorktown Mall Target. $5.48, I bought one of each.

Those 3 sets have been out for a while. Toys R us building shelves in the area are flooded with them. That makes me nervous for the future of those set, which I happen to enjoy.

I just saw that Hasbrotoyshop.com has Voyager Whirl and Rhinox in stock.

Still have yet to see them pop up in stores.

Again the Target and Wal-Mart here in Orland Park do not have any new Transformers.
I have not yet checked the TRU, but will go when I some more time.

How much was Whirl? I have him on preorder at HTS, but for a few bucks more I'll buy him today. Thanks!

He was $20+. I didn't see the exact price. I got my order in through HTS with the 20% off and free sipping, so i am just waiting for that.

Just got back from the Skokie Walmart on Touhy. Picked up a set of the new Playskool Rescue Bots with Heatwave, Bumblebee, and Optimus Prime. I was bummed that they were smaller but that was made up by them being on sale for $7.97 each with their Easter sale. They were in the Easter blue cardboard bins in the aisle in front of the boys section. There were a few sets left of each along with the rest of the Rescue Bots figures that were also on sale.

Back to working on the Age of Extinction galleries! I think these are great figures!!! They were purchased and over paid for on eBay.

Heh-heh, overpaid. But we appreciate it man!

Those 2 Whirls were still at that TRU as of about 7 tonight, 24.99. Ouch. I'll wait for mine to come from HTS. Better come.
