The wife and I went on a search for prime toys in Fort Wayne and failed. We were able to pick up some Tf generations bots at walmart in southtown. They were Junkheap, Sky Shadow, Scourge, Cliffjumper , and Cybertronian Soundwave. Maybe next week the Prime line will show up. Anyplace you guys know of that carries the Reveal the Shield line in Fort Wayne area? Where are you guys guessing the prime line will show up first at..... TRU? Thanks.

Prime toys have been at TRU here in The Fort already and haven't been restocked since they sold out. :shock: . Glad I picked them up when I did.


I haven't seen Junkheap yet, I must be getting everywhere too late... :BANG_HEAD:

Been looking at the new mods for Walmart and Generations is still on there which is good is you are still missing something in that line. Didn't see Prime listed (might have missed it) but I do think outside of the first edition releases at TRU, we're still a few months away from saturation on that line. Guy at one of the Walmarts I was at tonight said right now it's all about the new Star Wars stuff coming out.

I was out at WM south tonight, and if they did have stock on anything it was all gone. :-( I'll be out north tomorrow, and will see what's what there.

Besides Junkheap and the TFP toys, is there anything in particular anyone is looking for?
Also, I know TFP is supposed to be at TRU, but when is it going to be littering our Walmarts, Targets and Meijers?

Im surprised our TRU got the first wave at all, with them being so concerned about selling those VHTF ROTF figures. Sorry, I just really dislike our lame TRU >:oP

I did a swing through Decatur last night and I didnt see any prime line there. I did cave and buy a Skyhammer voyager class and Laserbeak deluxe class at there K-mart. I'll keep looking and let you guys know. Barricade did you get that junkheap at Target? I have a tech question on forums. Is there a settings I can change so that it shows the recents postings instead of having to go to last page tab once Im here? Any used toy store you guys go check out in the local area that is any good ? Thanks all.

yea, I saw they were getting them in. I though the last 2 weren't expected out till march? I dont mind waiting on BBTS. Just means my funds get a break :lol:

BTW, If you have yet put those grey chest plug into Structor, I wouldn't. Mine is already showing stress marks.I would either shave them down a tad or not put them in at all! I duno why I even did, he looked fine without them.

Thanks for the tip Josh, I haven't put the plugs in, and probably won't, as I want to keep all the pieces as original as possible. I may do reprolabels if they offer a full set for all six constructicons since they could always be removed. I'm not having any problems with Heavylabor's hips, so I may not do that fix either. Honestly I had no problems with Exgraver either, I think some people are just kinda rough with them. Hercules is far superior in QC to any of the MP's by Takara or Hasbro, IMO. I know this was a really expensive undertaking, but I'm really glad I decided to do it, it would of been worth forgoing a lot of other toys just to get him. You know he'll probably pay your boy's college education...can you imagine what he'll be worth in 20 years :ic$:

Anxious for the other Prime toys to be hitting the shelves.

FYI any RPG console gamers: FFXIII-2 is out at the end of the month..!

Got my last two yesterday..He's complete! :APPLAUSE:

Found a RTS Grapple at Marshalls for $10 bucks (last one). They did have a Leader Movie SS for the same price along with a Lugnut, and a few RTS deluxes.

Hit my SHIP POL button at BBTS 3 days ago...whenever that ACTUALLY happens :roll: Ill be the proud owner of a completed TFC Herc and a TFP FE Starscream.

Absolute craziness concerning Hasbro cancelling TFP FE...especially when you have online retailers w/ orders in, guaranteed sales! its not like they arent already produced and packaged WTF?

**** it Hasbro, retailers wont order your products? sell em on HTS, problem solved.

I agree about the TFP FE being cancelled. Held out on ordering assuming they would be hitting stores early this year. On a slightly better note , I did find 2 TFP RiD at the local TRU store in Fort wayne. They were BumbleBee and CliffJumper. I dont know what you guys think, but am getting tired of the local stores shelves being empty. Cant help but wonder how long the retailer will keep the space open for them . :-? Maybe its the retailers not ordering , but kinda dont think so. I have hit up different chains and its pretty much all the same. Empty pegs and 10 BumbleBee deluxes to chose from....lol. Hoping you guys have had better luck than me. Please give me a heads up if you guys find anything good in the Fort Wayne area.... would love to get the rest of the Primes. :grin:

Stopped at TRU this morning, only one TF Prime BB left. $14.99 for those little things? #-o You certainly are getting a lot less toy for a lot more money. I mean, the FE's they had were only $11.99 if memory serves me, wtf is up with this new pricing? The convention set with BB and Arcee was $30- but at least you got Raf and Jack, and they were "exclusives". Don't mean to rag, but with the economy the way it is, does Hasbro expect parents to shell out $15 for a tiny deluxe fig for a kid..? Just saying.

Btw, Target Glenbrook has The Ark play set on clearance for $14 if anyone is looking. Seems they had quite a few plus everything but DOTM(Ark exception) stuff on clearance.

Im glad you found one. Do you have the TFP FE Bumblebee? Do they compare? Me and a friend was talking about the higher prices and couldnt make up our mind. Do you think it is TRU sticking it to us or is the dollar weaker globally and Hasbro want to make a certain amount. I know I have seen higher costs on quite alot of items besides toys. Not a place for politics....sorry. Was recomended a Barricade deluxe for my scale set.Was eyeing the deluxe today through the package and it just doesnt look very good. Does he look better in robot mode. I have a human alliance one that has play wear on it and thought I would put a better looking one on the shelf. What do you guys think the better movie Barricade is? Hit Kmart and Walmart in Decatur today and nothing worth talking about. They both had new shipments of DOTM deluxes but no new models in it.Was hoping to see Soundwave.

Weapon: Cannon
For my Kokomo friends:
The Target has the Cyberverse set out (whatever they call the Legends class). I got a set of BB, CJ, Arcee, Vehicon, & Ratchet. 3 BB's and 1 CJ left now
Look for me on Facebook (I always could use new "nerd" friends to talk TF's with) http://www.facebook.com/pkilcline80

I broke down and ordered SW,WJ and CJ Prime figures from TRU. They have shipped as of yesterday. :APPLAUSE: I also got notice the Prime voyagers I ordered (Powerizers OP and Megs) are in at BBTS and should ship soon. I'll pay the shipping to save myself all the running around, and frustration at not finding anything.

I still don't get the pricing though, when you look at all the DOTM deluxes that are good size with mech tech weapon for $9.99 at W.M. with a shitload of all of them still on the shelf... :BANG_HEAD:
