I'm cherry - picking the Hades out of this line, only acquiring Ev - Op, Score and Strafe so far. I'm enamored with Op. Worth it entirely.

My, how congenial of them. :p

I found a single Cosmos at the Target in Warren at 12 & Dequindre today. He is mine now. But he IS out there, and so I presume Swerve is also out there.

Got the last MP Grimlock@the A2 TRU. Also acquired Deluxe Slash, there was 1ea. Slash/Drift left. Saw no Wave 2 Voyagers.

Drift looks surprisingly good, but I'm hoping the inevitable redeco looks better.

Patience prevails...

It's been FOREVER since I posted on here. That's what becoming a first time dad will do, I suppose. Is anyone from MI going to BotCon? I'm making my first trip out there next week!

Also, in toy related news! My husband spotted Masterpiece Grimlock at the Toys R Us in Jackson. He said it was the only one he could find there.

The Walled Lake Target on Haggerty road somehow, someway, dug up a whole case of the old Data Disc legions and put them on the shelf, if you still need them.

Acquired a singular Hound from the DB TRU as of about 11:30 am today. Left 1 Galvatron. He's in the regular display, not the front.

Happy Hunting.

Quick mention: I saw two Springer's at the Troy Wal-mart on 15 mile that were on Clearance at $17 a piece. Don't know if you'll see that at any other Wal-Marts.

Hello all.

Just spreading the word that Targets in the area are having a sale on the Silver Knight Optimus/Grimlock set: $25 and a $5 Gift card when you by the set. Ergo, you are effectively retaining the set for $20. Sale is in effect until 7/5.

Happy hunting.

Addendum: Finished Kreo wave 4 at the Canton Walgreens. Plenty left@2.89ea.

I'm sure this is a long shot but does anyone still see the DOTM deluxes while you are out and about?

Westland TRU had two Stomp-n-Chomp Grimlocks this morning for $79.99. I didn't see anyone buy one, and there was some confusion as to whether the computer recognized their code, but I think it's supposed to be out already, based on a little digging into the store computer's TF listings.

There might still be one in the next aisle by the giant Superman and Godzilla figures; its large size seems to leave some at a loss as to where it can fit in the regular TF section.

Another problem that I'm guessing will be commonplace is the gold paint on his snout being chipped and scuffed, due to the open "try me" nature of his box.

Livonia TRU has one MP Sunstorm. The box is pretty dinged up but it's there.
