I also found Transformers in the Five Below in Troy at 14 mile and John R, Across from the Oakland Mall:

Had a handful of TF Prime Dead End, Hot Shots, and Rachet. Think I also saw one or two Wheeljack's. Saw a large number of DotM Bumblbees and Mudflaps.

Got the only Archanid there, and a Dead End. Archanid was one of the last few I needed for the full cast of Prime. (going to use Kickback to replace the Insecticons since they only made the little guy) Breakdown and Prime himself, then I'll be complete. :D

Target on Ann Arbor/Saline road had the Generations Legends Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream. 1 of each as of yesterday around 1 pm. This is the first time I've seen any of those figures. They also had BH Ultra Magnus and Sharkticon Megatron. I hadn't seen Magnus yet either. Nothing else of note.

The target in, uh, West Bloomfield at 14 mile and Haggerty I saw the new Generations two packs. Mostly Megatron and Optimus, with one Bublbee and one Starscream with Waspinator.

The new Generations figures have shown up at the Target in Farmington Hills at 9 Mile and Middlebelt! I grabbed the only Trailcutter, but there was a few of megatron and Orion Pax.

Canton South(MI Ave) Target has the Predacons Rising end cap set up, not quite fully stocked, but close. Finally acquired Hoist(the last one), and Legends Prime/BB there last night(also the last ones). They had a couple each Legends Megatron, Starscream left, and plenty of the PR exclusives sans Cyrofire Predaking.

Lots of Generation/ Deluxes/Voyagers available, as well.

Happy Hunting.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Botcon 2005--Souvenirs Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw
Botcon 2009--Souvenir Sweeps
Botcon 2010--Souvenirs Rapido, Scorch/Shattered Glass Ravage


MISP preferred, but will consider opened NM/Complete, especially for older figures. Lots of TFs for trade! Please PM any inquiries, serious interest only!

Well, it looks like I won't be visiting this forum until next year. I'm all caught up on my Optimus collection and probably won't be picking anything up until the TF4 figures start to hit the shelves. See you guys around!
Well, that's just Prime...

I meant to post this a few days ago, and I'm not sure how much good this will do for anyone at this point, but there's an Xtravacon today (Sunday) from 10a-4p. Check www.motorcityconventions.com for more info if interested.

Has anyone been able to find wave 2 and 3 kreos? I found some back in CT a month ago but haven't seen them at all in MI yet.

I've seen the collection 3 Kreons in a couple Target stores around my area. Collection 2 was all over the place but now only a few stores have them randomly.

For wave 3, try Walgreens. I work there and we've received two cases of that wave. Never got any wave 2 though.

Thanks for the tip! I'll stop at the one that's right down the street from my work today :)

Check TJ Maxx if you are looking for TF Prime FE Deluxes. I found a bumblebee yesterday at the Southfield location

A couple of sightings today. Meijers in Davison had the wave 2 Kreon combiner sets. Piranahcon, Protectorbots, and Abominus?

Then at the Flint Toys R Us they had the first edition deluxe Starscream and Bumblebee.

Then I got in the mail MP 17 Prowl. He is fantastic! Same height as MP Sideswipe. Comes up to MP 10 Optimus Primes waist.
I really wish these would have come out stateside. Eighty something dollars shipped for these seems a little high for what you get.

I saw 40 or so Metroplexes at the Ann Arbor Costco yesterday. It has prime real estate on the end cap so you can't miss him.

Also, MP Prowl is pretty incredible. Looks amazing next to the others. Just like the cartoon.

Ann Arbor TRU had 1 Hoist, 2 Thundercrackers, 2 Orion Paxes and 1 Megatron this afternoon. Nothing else new. I'm still trying to find the new Legends Optimus with Roller. It annoys the crap out of me that AA TRU still has the same wave 1 Legends Decepticon Data Disks they had before Christmas last year.

Thanks to a friend of a friend, I am now in possession of a Generations Metroplex from Costco. Totally worth the $85!

Is there any Michiganders in the northern MI areas that want to help each other out with toys or grab a beer once every few months? I ask because if your in this area It can be a toy wasteland at times and if anyone sees a figure they can text or something and help a guy out if your not into the online buying or what your looking for is close by. Not looking to start a club or anything just a local toy finding network as it seems a lot of guys here are south of Grand Rapids
