I know this may not be the right place for this, but I wanted to type out my Chicago related thoughts about AoE.

Mild spoilers ahead.

Despite being the rallying cry for the humans in the movie Chicago was rebuilt extraordinarily well, almost like it was never damaged at all.

If you have ever been to the auto show or C2E2, you have been on the floor of a transformers factory.

The chase scene through the skies of the city was absolutely beautiful.

The editing crew did a nice job of showing "Hong kong" in the background of the old factory north of the Stevenson, except for one split second shot where you clearly see the Sears Tower.

Not sure if it's readily available -- but I purchased the last Quick N Change Drift at the Streamwood Walmart. So, if you're into Drift, the Quick N Change figure is out. Stopped by Quake West in Schaumburg. Aaron had a loose Commemorative G1 Optimus Prime. It's in great shape, but I think it's missing the blaster and the gas pump and hose thingie. Otherwise, the figure looks to be in great shape as is the trailer.

Walmart in Villa Park, Rt. 83, had a few of the newer One-Step figs, Lockdown, Bee, Hound, and Slash (I think). I bought Bee and Hound. Hound uses OP's transformation, while Bee's is all new and surprisingly good. His fists fold out, his forearms rotate, and his arms swing forward.

Happy hunting guys. Here in IL & NW Indiana we always seem to get the first sighting of the TRU MP's that get released during SDCC.


I got mine yesterday afternoon from the Woodridge store and another friend of mine found some in Joliet as well as Hobart. If you know your local stores truck schedule this should be an easy grab.
