Motto: "To punish and enslave..."
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.

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

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:

I saw some of the new Cyberverse figures along with a few Bot Shots and one lone Prime BB at TRU. Nothing that excited me.

I did get my voyagers Prime & Megs last week. I really like that Megatron figure, just too bad they didn't do him in silver instead of that lite grey they used.

WM west has the Prime toys on the shelf. :BOWDOWN:

Deluxes were WJ, CJ, and B.B. No sign of Arcee or S.W. There are two voyager O.P. but Megs is gone, there is a shelf tag for him however. Deluxes are $12.88 and the voyagers are $19.96.

Nice! I managed to score Arcee and SS when TRU here in town first had them. Glad I picked them up when I saw them.

WM south has some TFP RID, there was Wheeljack, Soundwave, Cliff and Bumbles. Also voyager Megs and Prime. They also had the TFP cyberverse figs and Bot Shots. I still dont know why but I ended up picking up SS and Prime botshots. They looked cute and were hard to resist but I think the game is lame but to a kid it might be fun.

They also have the new Marvel Legends if you are into that. The Thor is a thing of beauty.

FW ToyRUs had a few Cliffjumpers, but mostly Bumblebees. Glenbrook Target had a voyager RID Prime and a few deluxes. FFOE I picked up Bucky Cap and I love it. The ankle rockers are an amazing addition to the figures. I want to end up with an Arnim Zola.

Not much new for local sightings. although Boomer did tell me he found a TFP Ratchet at WM on 37.

The mailman did bring me a present today, the Superalloy Wheelie!

This figure is nothing but quality, good plastic and lots of diecast. Highly recommended.

This is where I found mine and is probably the best deal out there

the seller accepts paypal so there is little worries there.

Picked up Prime Ratchet and Arcee @ WM south yesterday. They are at TRU as well, but for $2 more. Really like Ratchet, and Arcee has some qualities that are better than the FE I already have. Anyone know when voyager Bulkhead is gonna hit the streets?

:CON: . On a side note, I preordered the Unicron and Vehicon jet BBTS has up for preorder.

Anyone going to Botcon this year?

I also preordered a jet vehicon...I still need a regular vehicon!

No to Botcon...they are still being held too far away for me to justify it. And with all the drama surrounding it i think i am better off.

There is still SLAGACON!

The new wave came today, and I only got :CON: Vehicon oop so far. It's a great figure with lots of upper body articulation. Not a bad size transformed, compared to how liittle car he is. I hope I happen to find a few locally to have a group. I'm sure the vehicon jet will be awesome as well, if this is any indication. :APPLAUSE:

Im really not going crazy with this line like I did with animated (ive learned alot since then)
Ive got my FE figs and RID Wheeljack and megs but beyond those I really only want those vehicons!

I really hope they get a good distribution here as I would like to get 4 or 5 :grin: but if it looks like they have dried up before you guys can get one just lemme know and I will come off a couple to help my fellow collectors out. :BOT:

Kind of late posting this, but I got voyagers SS and Bulkhead about two weeks ago.

Has everyone quit looking and collecting? We never see or hear much here anymore...
