Just grabbed McOptimus and McMegatron...lol. Decent! Neither one transforms but both light up and are actually pretty good looking. Best quality plastic I've seen as far as Happy Meal toys are concerned. Also picked up BB and Arcee deluxes at Target. Going out in a bit to see if I can't find the Cybervers Commanders Ops and Megs that I have been looking for. Would also be nice to come across the Bot Shot launchers of these characters too.

Found the Bot Shot launchers at 14/ John R. TRU. $9.99 is steep but, whetever, they had 'em. I think I grabbed the only Megatron but they had 3 Primes left.

8 & Haggerty Target has the BotShots 3-packs. At least 2 cases, it looked like. Livonia TRU has the BotShots launchers.

Wonderland Target had TF Prime Cyberverse Commanders. I almost bought a Bulkhead but dang, those are some long monkey arms.

I would go to Xtravacon but my needs are pretty specific as far as collecting goes. What do you suppose the likelihood of finding long MP-1 smokestacks or a G1 style trailer for my WST Prime would be? Or a WST Megatron would be nice. Not really a big comic buff so just trying to justify the drive to the West side.

Was planning on making an appearance, but my usual copilot(s) aren't available and the sheer cost of the drive (and any new purchases) while also trying to move (and fight a so-far-losing battle with the plumbing in the new place)... make it sort of a necessary pass.

Hope everyone had a good day, though! I'll try for April.

FINALLY found the Cyberverse Commanders I've been looking for. 15/ Van Dyke Target had them. I left behind 3 Optimus Primes and a Starscream. Good luck. I may go back for the Starscream if I'm not too late. He looked pretty badass.

Yeah, it's very rare to see that kind of stuff at an Xtravacon. You'd even be lucky to find stuff like that at the Motor City Con.

ill be surprised if theres isnt someone there with FE for an rediculous price. too bad i couldnt get anyone to grab me some from across the border a couple months ago. i can't imagine dropping 50 bucks for a cliffjumper and god knows what for prime and bulkhead now.

I consider myself lucky to have all the FE's that I wanted. I got lucky with the entertainment pack. Ended up grabbing one that had the human figures removed which really drove down the price. Normally, I would have passed on incomplete but having Prime and Megatron was far more important to me than the kids. I think I paid $50 for FE Voyager Prime and that was the cheapest I found at the time ANYWHERE. A bit overpriced but I have no regrets. He is one of my favorite Optimus Prime figures.

Side note: Would anyone be interested in a Classics Ultra Magnus? I am looking for a Fansproject G3 Trailer to go with my Classics Prime. I'll throw in the intructions and box as well but I am not willing to part with Skywarp at this time. PM me and let me know if you are interested. Thanks.

yesterday I picked up RID Ratchet at Grand Blanc Walmart. I got the only one. I also picked up a Nintendo 3ds on sale at Target for $145 which I think is a really good value. Its really a nice system! Target also has buy 2 get 1 free on their video games this week.

I love my 3DS! $145 is an absolute steal! There are some really great games, both carts and downloads, and the Virtual Console stuff is fantastic. StreetPassing is also loads of fun. I never go anywhere without my 3DS.
