i hit madison hieghts, southfield, livonia and roseville TRU yesterday with no luck. saw the beast hunters voyagers at the northville target.

Both Ann Arbor Meijers on Carpenter Rd and Ann Arbor-Saline Rd have plenty of Grimlock and Blasters. The Carpenter Rd one also has the Beast Hunters voyagers.

Also, it looks like they've dropped the price on the Kreo Microchanger combiners to $9. Good old Meijers' finally pulling through for us Michiganders.

Livonia Meijer had two each Voyager Optimus and Predaking just now. There's still no sign of the Kreo combiners at that store. Not even a tag on the shelf or an empty space for them. :-x

Wonderland Walmart has one each Voyager Optimus and Predaking along with the Beast Hunters Cyberverse Legion Class figures.

Wonderland Target has the new Beast Hunters Cyberverse vehicles, the Beast Hunters deluxes, and the FOC Combaticons wave.

By new Beast Hunters Cyberverse, are you referring to first wave with Optimus?

Nevermind, I see you're talking about the crappy Mighty Max looking playset vehicles. Oh well, I guess they are toys. May as well make something suitable for children...lol

Hasbro toy shop is pretty well stocked right now. They have the FOC and Beast Hunters Voyagers up for sale for those of you who haven't found them at Meijers yet. They got the Kreo combiners too.

I picked up the Autobot data discs to complement my Blaster. I also ordered those Kreo mini sets with Trailbreaker/cutter and Windcharger since they're only 4 bucks a piece. Free shipping still going on if your order is more than 50 bucks.

Always happy to see more friendly Michiganders join the ranks.

Wonderland Walmart: 5 FOC Grimlocks, 1 FOC Blaster, series two Bot Shots (singles, launchers, and playset), Beast Hunters Cyberverse Legion and Commanders, and many FOC and Beast Hunters deluxes that aren't quite exciting anymore.

I was in Okemos today. Walmart had TFPBH Voyagers and not much else. TRU had BH Cyberverse Commanders and Legions and some deluxe Soundwaves and Wheeljacks. I snagged the only FOC Kickback.

Looks like Westland TRU had a nice restock earlier this week. Just the usual leftovers from the newest waves. I did see some Bot Shots 3-packs that I hadn't seen yet, though. They had all of the latest Kre-O stuff. They also had the GI Joe Kre-O sets along with the blind packed Kreons (Priced 20cents higher than the TF ones, which is annoying). I just grabbed one at random and pulled a Crimson Guard. I figured the troop builders would be the first to go. Does anybody have a link to a guide or know which numbers correspond to what figure?

I wish I knew you were looking for Kickback. They had one at the Gratiot/15 Target a couple of weeks ago. Other than a FOC Magnus, they really had nothing else at the time. I would have picked him up for you. Sorry bud.

Would anyone be willing to part with Optimus Prime and launcher from the Bot Shots Dragon Track set? I will pay $10 and can meet near Macomb Mall. I have no need for the entire set.

Happy Birthday to me! Let the Transformers flow like wine today...lol. I was at 13/ Little Mack Meijer yesterday and saw 1 Voyager Blaster and 2 FOC Grimlocks. The gold coloring on Grim seems a bit dull to me. I wish it were chrome gold. Also, I believe the head sculpt is great but it should be black instead of dark gray. The Blaster had some flaws in the paint apps or else I may have picked him up. Still decent if you aren't that picky.

I'm trying to avoid anything other than Optimus Prime right now. I really feel obligated to reach the point of completion desired with my collection. If anyone can help me out, I would appreciate it greatly. Here is what I need:

1. Reprolabels.com Sticker set for Powermaster Optimus Prime
2. Action Masters Optimus Prime
3. Music Label Optimus Prime Ipod dock G1 Color.
4. Takara THS-02 Hybrid Style Convoy
5. Takara C-35 Beast Wars Big Convoy (Wooly Mammoth)
6. WST Optimus Prime G1 trailer (Gray w/ blue and white stripes)
7. Tomica diecast Optimus Prime w/ trailer
8. Air Attack Optimus Primal
9. Blast Punch Optimus Primal
10. Takara C-16 Beast Wars Leo Convoy (Lion)
11. Trailers for Transformers: Prime Optimus Primes
12. Transformers: Prime Beast Hunters Dragon Hunter Optimus
13. Generations Orion Pax (Optimus Prime)
14. Takara Star Convoy (Optimus Prime)
15. Any Optimus Prime items not seen in the pics below.
