Found Rumble at the Livonia Walmart at Wonderland. No sign of Kup. Looks like this wave has a DVD episode pack-in so if you see a Bumblebee or Wheeljack with a DVD, you might have missed the others.

As an aside, I was coming back from Canada and stopped at the Windsor Toysrus. They had at least 50 first edition Bumblebees. No signs of the others. It was nauseating. The staff was dumping them into carts along with the tons of DOTM Bumblebees to get rid of them. I guess Hasbro overestimated how much Canadians love Bee.

They've had those same Bumblebees for about a year now. Or at the very least, they keep restocking them, but I'll bet they're the same ones.

Hmm thought I posted this earlier, but I guess my phone was being lazy today.
I picked up Prime Rumble and Kup at the Lapeer WalMart today. They were the only ones. But I did leave a Vehicon. That was at about 10:50am.
Then I drove out to the Flint Miller Rd. Target and grabbed the only Skyquake.

Hey, guys, just found a MP Thundercracker at the TRU on Alpine in Grand Rapids! They had at least 2 more left (this was at 6:30ish pm). Go get 'em if you're in the area and are still looking for one of these guys! :D

Picked up the GDO deluxes at Ann Arbor Toysrus this AM. Still don't know what GDO stands for. I usually open my TFs but these look pretty cool in their Chinese packaging. There should be a full set left.

Already have my tickets for Fanfare. Still debating if I'm going to set up at the Xtravacon the weekend before or not. I could use the extra pocket money, obviously, just not sure what kind of turn out there'll be.

If anyone is looking for the GDO deluxes and scouts, TRU.com has them all with free delivery if you spend over $49. Save yourself some gas and order them while they last.

Thanks for that. I was dumb and only ordered 3 which was not enough for free shipping. :BANG_HEAD:

BRAWL, SANDSTORM, and LASERBEAK, if anyone was wondering which I ordered.

EDIT: Can't believe I forgot to order DEAD END/WILD RIDER whoever it was...

TRU on gratiot in roseville had the GDO scout class figs but no deluxes and 1 voyager dreadwing for the prime toys. after seeing one in person i'm personally sticking to the deluxes and commanders until the FE come back into stock.

Just saw some GDO deluxes at TRU Saginaw. I think I got the last Wheelie and Springer, but several Swerves and at least 1 Cliff left. Also, they had 2 MP Thundercracker.

Found the GDO deluxes at Ann Arbor TRU today. Bad to ask for them to get them out of the back. Grabbed the swerves and wheelies for me and tfpredaking. Left the CJs and Springers. They also had 1 set of the legend figures.

Ann Arbor TRU also has a glut of MP Thundercrackers. They had 4 unopened cases above the aisle as well as a few on display. I guess they're officially not rare. What does this mean for MP Prime?

TRU.com has Dreadwing listed for $26.99 if anyone's interested. Although it is listed as Bulkhead, the picture is Dreadwing. Here is the link: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=12448053

Spotted a Voyager Dreadwing at the TRU on 28th Street in Wyoming the other day. Only one, though, and I stuck him on layaway because I didn't have the fundage at the time. Picking him up wednesday, though, and I am STOKED.

Found a Dreadwing at Wixom Target today. Looks like he's slowly coming out. Still at Target's usual 19.99 price.

He's way better than I thought he'd be other than having too many rubbery parts (including the head and face). Definitely one of my favorites. Interesting to transform and show-accurate. I despise the light up weapons. Think of how much more awesome the toy could be if that money could have gone into the figure rather than that weird gimmick.

My wife found one at a Dearborn Target last week that I got for my birthday. The gun is useless, and whenever I hear that point brought up its always disassemble the gun and take out the spring. Then use a small rubber band to bind it in the open position.

What kid is going to want to do that? The weapons on the voyagers are useless.

At least DW comes with a sword.

Westland TRU had the GDO scouts up. I just grabbed a Brawl. Love that mold. I didn't see any of the deluxes but was told they had them. Also noticed the tag for MP Thundercracker is now $74.99.

Yeah I saw that $75 too the other day. Yikes.

I got the GDO scouts online at tru. Brawl is cool I want to head swap him and add on a cannon with a clip to his back to make a bit better Guzzle.

Sandstorm has awesome paint apps. It is so Sandstorm. If only it had a copter mode.

Also got laserbeak. Meh.
