Could anyone link some info on Fanfare? I'm unaware of it and would like to possibly check it out. Thanks.

The Five Below just opened where the Borders used to be. I'd much rather have a bookstore there than an over glorified toy store for tweens, but at least the spot isn't sitting empty like where the old Circuit City is.

I got the Bruticus wave from BBTS a few weeks ago. I'm mixed about him. He's impressive to look at, but they cut a lot of corners in the engineering. I applaud Hasbro for making separate large and unique Combaticons, but it could've been so much more awesome. I'm not going to bother with the Autobot remold of him. The best value might be getting the G2 version set. I still hope they sell well since it will encourage Hasbro to make the other combiners.

Well, I believe it's the 21st since I have a table reserved for it, but I just looked at the website and the next show is listed as November 18. I'm thinking I might have to call to make certain.

yeah, I talked with a guy who said he got the flyer...but they usually don't do a show the same month as a con...whether motor city or fanfare....let me know what you find out GM. I'll probably show up next week just to see what's what...if there's a show.

Still have yet to see GDO Deluxes, and there were no FE Voyagers or MP Optimus Primes. The store does have 3 Thundercrackers still, however, and a few GDO Scouts. There's still an entire peg's worth of GDO Legends.

All I saw today was a Voyager Dreadwing at Wonderland Walmart. I'm still kind of on the fence about whether I want to continue with my Prime collection so I left it.

Dreadwing might have pulled you off of the fence. Other than the awfull weapon, he is a fantastic toy.

that's funny, when i saw one in the stores i kind of went in the opposite direction. nothing but deluxe,commander and legion class for me out of the prime line now.

nothing new this morning from the roseville TRU save 2 entertainment packs, a case of MP thundercrackers and a case of generations figs from last year featuring junkheap,sky shadow,wheeljack and warpath. oh and there was one random FOC brawl on the shelf.

Success!! Picked up MP Prime this morning at Madison Heights TRU. Called yesterday and found out they had one case coming on the truck last night. TRU system shows the warehouse is carrying 0. There aren't any left at the store now. There was another guy that grabbed the other one for his son. They do have a Chinese Megatron though and a Hotspot. Happy hunting my Seibertronian homies...

4 MP 'Crackers@ the Dearborn TRU, $74.99ea. Also an older case of Generations Deluxes, the last assortment, sans the Junkion. Nothing else of note.

I'd like to request some coolective backup for GDO Voyagers, particularly Hotspot. I'll return the favor.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Madison Heights TRU had a Generations Hotspot when I left this morning. Worth a call to see if they still have it.

Scored@the DB TRU at lunch today. All 3 GDO Voyagers, 2 FE Vehicons, 1 FE CJ. There was a set of the 4 GDO Deluxes, some Legends, and the rest to the FE case left. This was about 11am. Still 2 MP Thundercrackers.

Happy Hunting.
