Ann Arbor Toys R Us also has the Kreo microchanger packs. Love how they now have a new display brick included. They have a few full sets of 12 left. Didn't see anything else new that hasn't already been reported there.

Oh, and thanks for the numbers. They're worth their weight in gold.

Didn't see any of the new FOC deluxes. Only a few Voyager Soundwaves.

I picked up the Kreon Microchangers today! I grabbed six at Livonia TRU and six from Westland TRU just for fun. I'm still in the process of opening them, but it seems my Inferno came with the wrong helmet. He has the same helmet as Airachnid. Anybody else have any parts mix ups?

Corroborated. Just picked up 1ea @the Allen Park location, left 1ea., price $10.99 per. Check Meijer if you're a Kreo lover. They'll be in the Action Figure eisle across from the figres.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Ann Arbor-Saline Meijer-Thrifty-Acres has the Kreo combiners (only true Michiganders call it that).

Also, Masterpiece Lazerbeak is pretty freakin awesome. The fact that he comes with Soundwave is a nice bonus! Pretty pricey, so if you can hold out for the eventual TRU release, I'd wait for that. MP Prime is still better in my book since Soundwave's hip joints stink.

Ha! yeah, Soundwave is nice. The plastic seems a little iffy to me. I wouldn't say cheap but he's a lot lighter than I expected. and the hip joints scare me a bit....especially with that in mind. I haven't had a chance to play with the combiners yet, but they look awesome.

So has anyone seen any Beast Hunters voyagers yet? I'm dying to get my hands on Optimus Prime. I would like to find the Cyberverse BH Optimus also.
Well, that's just Prime...

I haven't seen the actual toys but the local (Flint) Meijer stores have the shelf tags out as of today which means they will be in stores soon.
I did see the Kreo combiner sets yesterday at the Flint Walmart. I passed on them. Looks like they had the whole case still there.

Question for collectors local to me (St. Clair Shores). Does anyone have a G2 Optimus Prime trailer for parts (lighter blue)? I am looking for springs that go in the drone missile launchers. PM me if you can help out. Thanks in advance.

They've had the BH Voyager tags at the Meijer in Okemos for about 2 weeks now, but still no figures, it's kind of infuriating.

Wow that sucks! Waaay back when I worked at Meijer, if the tags were up, the product would follow a week or two behind MAX!

Be careful with those small ball joints on the Kreo combiners. I tore off a hip on one of them while trying to pop off the combiner thigh piece. These tiny ball joints are iffy. Fortunately I was able to harvest another hip piece from a different Kreo.

I guess they just aren't as robust as genuine Legos.

I grabbed a Kreo Bruticus set at Westland Meijer today. They only had that one and a Superion set, which I left. I was afraid of this, but I think I'm going to need two of each set to display the four separate Kreons and the combined forms. I don't think I'll be able to resist.

Just saw a lone FOC Kickback@the Dearborn TRU, look as if it was opened and returned, but looked complete and in good shape, if anyone wants him that bad. Nothing else notable.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

2 BH Voyager Predakings at the Roseville Meijer (13/ Little Mack) but no Optimus because the last one is sitting in front of me. Can't wait for the CV Optimus. Good luck everyone!

Thanks for the updates, all. Procured a Predaking@the Belleville Meijer yesterday, left 1 Prime. Also worth noting that they had several price decreases: Bot Shot singles $3, Prime Deluxes $11, Kreo Combiners $9, and sundry others. Looks like they are pushing out old stock, get while the getting is good. :grin:
