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.

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.

Nice find, God Magnus! Prowl is still too much for me. Maybe if I have the money when Bluestreak comes out. He looks great. Are the hasbro ones coming with any extras?

I thought this thread and gone quiet. Turns out I got unsubscribed. Nothing new to report. I've seen some Doubledealers around. That's about it in terms of new stuff. Ann Arbor, as far as I know, hasn't seen Swerve, Cosmos or Tailgate. I got all of mine off of Amazon.

Glad to see you back on the thread, noob!

Prowl just came with the figure, gun, and instructions. Given the price, I don't think I'm going to be waiting on the Hasbro releases for these anymore.

Lame, I was hoping they were going to come with the shoulder missile launchers.

Yeah, you can get them from Japan with shipping for nearly the same price, if not cheaper.

Found them all! Lol. Anyways, I've been slowly listing items from my huge Optimus Prime collection for sale. Thought I would pop in and see if any of my fellow Michiganders would be interested in any. Check out my collection in the link or find it in the Collections forum. Most current on second page. I also have some of the TF4 Primes. Please inquire.

I have sold Hasbro MP-10, First Edition Optimus Prime (Prime series), and 20th Anniversary DVD edition MP, Softimus (Plush) Prime, and G2 Gobot Prime.

I would like to keep G1 commemorative, 20th Anniversary Optimus MP (original), and Takara MP10.

I am up to selling everything else to the highest offers. I have packaging/ instructions for most (not all). Please ask.

Local pick up and CASH/ Paypal only. I really don't want to go the Ebay route with these. Thank you.

Please PM me with offers/ questions if interested.
Well, that's just Prime...

I'm now down to the last two I need to complete my Kre-O Micro Changers Collection 4 set. If you happen to spot some anywhere, please let me know. Specifically, I'm missing #36 (Cyclonus) and #40 (Rhinox). Thanks!
