Meijer in Gaylord had 3 or 4 PRID Vehicons as well as 2 Soundwaves and a Soundblaster. Picked up a Soundwave. Hefty mofo! :CON:

Today, Westland TRU had a couple FOC deluxe Combaticons. Blast Off and Vortex, I think. They also had a few Voyager Soundwaves and a crap-ton of the little 2-packs.

Anybody hitting Xtravacon tomorrow?

Grabbed the Stunticons@the DB TRU on Fri, very happy with that set. Might pick up the Polar Assault set eventually, but mainly because there's another chase fig included.

Hope everyone is having a safe and happy Holiday season!

I picked up FOC Starscream at the Flint TrU today. I left an Ultra Magnus and a Sideswipe. I'm not impressed in the least with any of the FOC figures except for the engeneering of Bruticus and voyager Soundwave and his minions are kinda cool. I think it's safe to say I am not going to be picking up any more mainline Transformers. They keep raising the prices and lowering the quality. Think I'm going to stick with 3rd party and Masterpieces from now on or at least till Hasbro shapes up a bit.
I'm a little sad now. lol

Found the new deluxe Generations wave 3 at TRU in Novi. Picked up Sideswipe, Kickback, and Fireflight/Air Raid. Left a Sideswipe, Starscream, and I think another Magnus.

They also had all the Beast Hunter deluxes x 2. I grabbed a Soundwave.

I'm with BigW though, I'm working on my collecting habits and pruning my collection and collecting habits. In fact, we're discussing this topic on the podcast tonight available next week.

Ann Arbor TRU had all the Beast Hunters as well as a few voyager Soundwaves and a lone Soundblaster. I wonder if he's short-packed?

These Beast Hunters are pretty neat and have a lot more play-ability with their accessories. I've noticed the remolded ones have pretty loose joints. Lazerback is pretty heavy and bulky which I like. Feels like he's more worth the money.

I'm just waiting for the Beast Hunters voyagers and CV. I haven't decided on the Kre-o yet. In the meantime, I may do a little hunting today. I'll keep everyone posted if I find something new.

You may want to try Meijer, several reports@TFW already.

Dearborn TRU has BH Deluxes, two each, except for Laserback, only 1 after I grabbed mine. They also have a fresh case of FOC Soundwave, only 1 Soundblaster, a few each of the Minions. Also saw a lone FOC Brawl. They're still loaded well with GDO Deluxes, mostly Swerves, but still a couple each Wheelie/Springer.

Happy hunting.

Westland Meijer has a Soundblaster if anyone is still looking. Good luck, that store is a madhouse today. I did grab the new LEGO Batman set with Aquaman while I was there. Still waiting on Flash and Green Lantern minifigs....

Saw those yesterday doing grocery shopping Tony! I picked up a TMNT set, but will probably get that Batman set sometime (TMNT set had Raph and Fishface).

Thanks to moneycon for kindly letting me out of our purchase agreement when I was able to find Soundblaster at Westland TRU yesterday and use rewards bucks to help buy him and the discs. Moneycon is a great person who is willing to support his collecting brethren. I thank you man, and again if I can help you any way, let me know.

Picked up FOC Voyager Soundwave last weekend at Roseville TRU...These data disc minions really fit snug in his chest cavity. Mine are so tight that they don't properly deploy. Oh well, still a decent figure and $20 is actually cheaper than what I expected him to be considering PRID voyagers were $28. Going to see what I can find today...Good luck everyone.

Grabbed the lone FE Optimus Prime from Roseville TRU this morning. They had 4 FOC Soundwaves and 2 Soundblasters. Oh and all TFs are buy one, get one 50% off. I'll be more than happy to trade for Beast Hunters voyager Optimus Prime if anyone has one already...

If not, I will just hang on to him. I already have one from the first run in the Canadian English/ French packaging but I could always do a Nemesis Prime with this one. It would be my first custom. Let me know if you want to trade. Thanks

Picked up a couple Vehicons at the Flint Aldi's. They were marked $6.99 but rung up at $3.99 Not too shabby. They also had a couple Knockouts.

My Masterpiece Soundwave came in today at bbts and has already been shipped!! That is unheard of at bbts anymore. Should have him in hand Monday. Can't wait!

They are very cool, slightly improved from the first batch. About half of them qualify as fantastic, Dirge and the Combiner limbs particularly. I'm looking forward to the Combiner sets, especially. It will be interesting to see if we can somehow integrate the 5th member(s)...
