I was able to score one off e-bay for regular price and shipping. Finally all six seekers, including the IGear Coneheads. Got Fort Max pre-ordered at BBTS.

I can't believe I found a MP Optimus today on the shelf..! TRU has free lay-a-way which was cool as well. They also have the FE Prime double pack with shiny Megs and all the kids. TRU has the best TF display I've seen to date. Maybe things are turning around.

Found the 4 asian scouts at TRU today. :grin:

The only FE Prime still on the peg was Arcee, evidently someone came and bought them all today, that, or hid them. I actually had a employee check stock for me and none to be had. He had just brought out some sports figures for a guy that were in back, and for a nice change genuinely WANTED to help a customer.

Thanks for trying kid. :APPLAUSE:

Was a good toy week for me-finally!

I found Sgt. Kup @ WM west yesterday. It was almost $16 for this dinky little, barely bigger than scout sized figure. You can get a light up spaceship or drill for $22 which even includes a cyberverse figure, so how is it that these 'deluxe' size figures are so close in price..? Sorry to say, but Hasbro has about lost my business entirely. I can't really see a parent paying those type of prices either, for a tiny little vehicle that turns into a tiny little robot.

I don't like the way we've been jerked around with the exclusives either. They dangle these carrots in front of our faces only to tell us cancelled, or only available on a overseas website. WTF...

I've been collecting for about 15 years now and I think it's time to quit. It's no longer enjoyable and has become quite expensive. That, plus the unavailability of a lot of figures just doesn't cut it with me.

Sorry...just venting frustration. Hasbro just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

:BOOM:

I went to get my lay-a-way out at TRU yesterday before the 20% coupon expired. Low and behold when they rang him up again before the coupon expired-his price had gone up $20 and he rang up at 119.99. They overrode the price since I had locked in the $99.99, plus I got the additional 20% off of him. :grin:

I also picked up a FE Prime two pack set with the shiny Megs and all the kids, plus the Asian deluxe of CJ since he's basically the FE Prime version. Out of the four Asian deluxe figures they had only CJ and Swerve, no Wheelie or Springer.

Today I found Cyberverse Ultra Magnus at WM south. KMart had absolutely nothing but old stuff.

. saw the first edition entertainment pack and like three Arcees at the Merrillville TRU. If anyone goes out there and sees an FE Starscream and/or Generations Warpath, either let me know somehow or leave one there because I’ve had a craving for those guys lately

Stopped by Aldi today and picked up the following:

3x vehicon
1x rumble
2x airachnid (hate the figure, love the character)
2x hot shot
1x dead end
2x knockout

All together i payed like 118 dollars or something close. Not bad considering i got like 11 figures.

Hey guys, I passed on a MP Prime at Ft Wayne TRU today at 4:30. I can't justify the price right now. Sucks. Go give him a good home.

Hey people, I've just gotten back after a month long stay in St. Petersburg, and let me say their TRU was well stocked, and even had the new Beast master toys.

Just wanted to alert you to some of my auctions on EBay for the next few weeks, as I am relocating to Florida, If there is anything you are looking for, let me know. I've been collecting nearly 20 years, so I have lots to sell. PM me if you're interested.

Just wanted to say its been nice to be part of this forum and meeting you has been a pleasure. You'll see me posting in Fla. sightings right after Valentines day.

Take care everyone and keep the hobby alive

My MP Soundwave came yesterday. Nice figure, glad I preordered and saved the extra money. He seems much more solid and stable than Rodimus, but of course, he's not manufactured by Hasbro. I'd pick it up if you are on the fence about it.

My birthday was the 16th and i got Predaking and rid Bumblebee (to complete the autobot cast) and i also picked up Grimlock, Smokescreen and Ripclaw. Highland and Merrillville targets both have wave two, but highland only has bulkheads left after i got the smokescreen, and merrillvill had everyone but smokescreen.

Everywhere around here pretty much has beast hunters wave one, generations wave three and soundwave/the discs

Well you guys, I moved to Florida since I last posted, so I guess this will be my last post here. It's like toy heaven here, the TRU has a great selection and stays well stocked. Same for the WM near the house. I'm in Kenneth City which is a stone's throw away from St. Pete. Great comic/toy shop called Emerald City which has me drooling every time I visit nearby too. Move cost me a fortune so I'm not buying a whole lot for a while. Do have the Fort Max on order from BBTS, since I sold my Brave Max on EBay.

Take care you guys, been nice being in this group with you all!

Just wanted to inform my Indiana friends that I scored the 2 BH Voyager Shockwaves from Kokomo Walmart this morning so he's starting to hit places.

And to barricade, hope you truly enjoy being in Florida and you will be missed by the group
Look for me on Facebook (I always could use new "nerd" friends to talk TF's with) http://www.facebook.com/pkilcline80

went looking around the local targets for the Voyager Triplechangers, Highland and Merrillville proved fruitless, but a quick jaunt to St. John did the trick :D after me picking both up they have of each left

Hey everyone. I know this isn't the correct place for this, but since I'm not new to the forums and this is more localized I thought it would be ok. I'm Dalglb66 aka Ross. I've been collecting mainly since the 2007 movie came out and love to expand my collection. I just moved up here a few weeks ago from Georgia. Been busy trying to deal with utilities, unpacking, job hunting, etc. I try to stay active in the sightings forum and post my findings from when I go out. Any questions please feel free to ask. Hope to see yall out there.
