They also had a nice selection of Prime Voyagers/Powerizers. I noticed Ultra Magnus and Thundertron. Not sure if this offer is at all TRU's, but all Prime figures were "buy 1 get 1 50% off." So that makes the $25+ for the big guys less painful. Happy hunting!


Seems to be all TRUs at the moment.

went to Flint Toys r Us this morning and saw voyager Thundertron and Ultra Magnus but for $26.99 so I passed. Went to Miller Rd. Target and saw them for $19.99 and snatched them up. I think they had 1 more set of each.

The Dearborn TRU has 1ea of the FE Voyagers,and restocked the GDO Legends, as of about 11am this morning.

Yesterday, I saw plenty of MP Thundercrackers still left@the Ann Arbor TRU, plus 4 GDO Megatrons. I think all of the MP Primes are gone. :-(
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Of 3 local TRU's I visit frequently, I never saw an MP Prime.

The A2 location had quite a restock of them about 2 weeks prior to Black Fri. IIRC, someone posted@TFW that they had about 40(20 cases).

I went the weekend before Thanksgiving, and, counting unopened cases, there were at least half that. I wish I knew you were in the market, I would have hooked you up. Just let me know.

On a side note, the FE Voyagers ROCK. :grin:

I'm not really in the market, so no worries, I have the Takara version, and have way too many Primes as it is currently. I just would have liked to see one at retail to kind of make a decision over it there. It's been easy up until now to say I don't need it....if I saw it in the store it would be something different, I'm sure.

Ann Arbor TRU is decently stocked. Saw all the FE voyagers and a single FE Bulkhead (an amazing toy, don't pass him up). No more MP Primes, but plenty of Thundercrackers. Did TRU raise Prime's price again? It looks like it's $130 online now.

Got my FOC Starscream, Sideswipe and Magnus from HTS. Starscream is OK, but the others don't look that good. they have weird headsculpts. Don't pay too much for them.

Compared to the other toys, it seems like TF's aren't selling that well this Christmas. I hope this isn't a bad sign for future releases.

Ann Arbor-Saline Target had a full set of Combaticons when I was there a few hours ago. Hope he stays together.

grabbed a full set of combaticons at the roseville TRU this afternoon and left 4 each of the FE voyagers, a ultra magnus, a swindle and a case of GDO deluxes.

talked to another collector who said they found a normal FE cliffjumper(not the zombie one) at a local TRU out of a current case of FE deluxes. keep those eyes open!

Was that normal Cliffjumper on a zombie Cliffjumper card? That probably would be worth something to the rare TF collector in the future.

according to what they told me it was a straight up FE cliffjumper. if i have one complaint about GDO cliff its the head and a FE cliff would fix that up for me nicely.

As of 11am today, the Dearborn TRU had 4ea of the FE Voyagers, 2 GDO Powerdives, a new case of GDO Deluxes, a sundry other stuff.

Got my latest POL last Fri, the limpid winner in ToyWorld's Grind Rod("Not Rollbar"). He's 3rd Party par excellence, in idyll, every TF Deluxe should aspire to such quality. Solid, durable plastic, a perfect homage of a 'bot mode, no kibble, a slick transformation, and a 10+ alt mode.

I can, with pure probity, say he's one of the best not-TFs out there. Highly recommended. >:oP

FOC voyager Soundwave and Soundblaster were on my doorstep after coming home from work. (Ordered them super late on Friday and was thoroughly amazed at how fast they came from TRU.com). So far they seem pretty cool. Love that they are larger than the recent voyagers we've been getting. Data disc Lazerbeak/buzzsaw are cute. For anyone else who got them, have you noticed their guns weren't included? The instructions and package art show a gun (that's a dead ringer for G1 Prime's) but none to be found on the toy. Is this the same for you guys?

I don't know how you guys can leisure shop right now. Lines to check out are horrible.

I left minions at Westland TRU yesterday because I just did not want to wait in lines.

waiting in line gives me more time to play transformers legends on my phone!!

found soundwave/blaster and minions at the roseville TRU this afternoon and had to have everyone thanks to the bogo 40% off sale. and i had myself convinced that i didn't need laserbeak too. so much for that.

I'm out of state (in MD) for Christmas. The local TRU here has the Beast Hunters. Damn, they look better than i thought they would. Looks like Hasbro will be getting more of my money in 2013.

Merry Christmas. May you stockings be full of TFs.

bought the beast deluxes. They look nice, haven't cracked 'em open yet. found them at tru pontiac. I also saw a ton of voyagers soundwaves at tru pontiac AND Flint....but no Blasters.....I guess they're shipping 1 per case or something stupid like that. Anyway, a lot of sounds waves and cassettes at both locations...more in Flint, looks like they got two cases. If anyone is going to xtravacon this weekend and wants to bring a blaster for me that would be Gold! :)

FYI, FOC Blaster is wave 2, 1 per case w/3 Grimlocks. FOC Voyager Wave 1 is 3 Soundwave/1 Soundblaster.

Hope everyone had a prosperous Holiday. :grin:

So a friend from high school sent me a box of Transformers. It had a G1 Scorponok in it it!!! Not complete, but it does have Zarak! There was also a G1 Breakdown and Dead End. And a G1 Eject. A headless G1 Swoop and sealed RiD Spychanger Hot Shot, G1 Steeljaw and an RiD deluxe. Not sure which one. Pretty great surprise. Nothing is complete, but the figures are in pretty good shape.

Westland TRU had beast hunters deluxes today. They also had the new bot shots five packs and Generations Soundwave but no Soundblaster.

Lazerback has horrible paint apps ( I think it's probably just mine). Also bought BH Wheeljack too along with the new Bot Shots.

Happy Christmas all!
