For the same reason I am going to be disappointed when I go hunting tomorrow night and come home with nothing :)

Wow, so I guess that TFM was right about starting a new thread. Ah well, I guess that we all have to deal with change sometimes.

Anyway, I found all the new Sigma 6 Soldier assortment at the Taylor WM yesterday, Firefly(he's sweet), Wet Suit, Hi-Tech(also sweet...with translucent "stealth" forearms and calves!), and Shipwreck, who looks suprisingly good, and has much better colors than the pics we've seen so far. And you have to love any guy who has a pet monkey. Happy happy, joy, joy! Can't wait for Toxic Zartan and Lockdown(SWAT guy!).

Nothing else new to report...guess this one will be out new home for a while.

Oh, TT24, were you able to get a Magnus set? If not let me know so I can pass on the extra.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

I just saw a post about the 25th anniversary GI JOE. I hadn't heard about these, but I'm not huge into GI JOE. But I may need to pick up a few of the Cobra Soldier figure. I hope they put out some Crimson Gaurds and Vipers!

For a great picture check out this thread. It's a little ways down on the first page.

I only saw three of the 25th Joes so far, so seeing the others was quite a surprise, but of course I will get them. They look cartoon and comic accurate, with perfect accessories.

(Something odd going on here. Whenever I try to use slash, or apostrophe it brings up quick search...very annoying).

No PQP, I do not have a set yet, so if you could hold, I will take them, if there is nobody else who must have one early.

Well, TT has reported in.. Where's TFMaster? We need everyone back :grin:

way off topic here.. as if my last few posts haven't been. Has anyone been reading the new star wars novels. the legacy of the force? not the comics but the novels? Just curious. they've been really good and wanted to talk to someone else that has read them.

TT, just a heads up on minimates. looks like they've released a 5 pack of the new cylons at suncoast locations for $19.99. i don't know if you were going to army build, or if you ordered any from bbts, but this seems pretty good.

The reason why I haven't chimed in yet is because I HATE this **** thread...or rather it's title.

The old title we use to easily find because of the odly set up way the name was. It popped and made it instantly accessable...this name...uggh...It's so short it can hide in a mouse's ass crack. Michiganders Unite..uhg...What are we a Charlie Brown Malitia? :-x

Ok...rant done. :oops:

You F'ks should have listened to me before!!! :P :grin:

Anyhoo, I already got 2 sets of the UM/SW Target exclusives, one for me and one for my Son for his B-day this Weekend. I still want a couple more just for stock and kitbash purposes.

The only things i'm looking for now is all the newly sighted Classics of Ramjet and CJ and the 3 Minicon packs (The Middlebelt and Plymoth had a large setup with nothing but a crap load of wave 1 minicons so I won't be seeing those anytime soon) and Tit RID Prime and WW SS.

Oh, that is untill we get a sighting for the new Alts.

Well, I got Titanium Starscream and the revoltechs. All 3 are awesome! After 20 minutes, I finally got SS out of his package.. damn twist ties!(my fingers hurt :grin: ) Revoltechs are really cool. trying to replace the fist so they could hold the gun was difficult. it's not easy to get out. I finally had to use my teeth. I was reading the back of the starscream box and this quote just struck me as a little strange... "Most Decepticons keep score of how many Autobots they take out, but Starscream carves himself little trophies out of their pelvic gimbals." Their WHAT? :shock: Those poor, poor, Autobots :grin:

welcome back, TFMaster.

TFM, just curious about where you got the your Magnus sets?

I don't have alot of free time this weekend, I have a good bit of homework, paperwork to do for my apprenticeship, and I'm going to try to get my taxes done as well. Plus the usual cleaning and laundry...if you guys want to stop by, you're welcome to.

TT whenever you want that set let me know, you can pick it up anytime. Since TFM got his, and noob is in no hurry, I can hook up ionacus if he would like, or Scaleface(where has he been?), just let me know guys.

I should be getting a massive shipment from BBTS either today or tomorrow. :grin:

Oh, and I wanted to add that, for the Sigma 6 fans out there, Paratrooper Duke has had a price decrease out at the Allen Park Target, now he's marked at $19.99. I imagine that most opther Targets are doing the same thing.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

I had my Revoltechs on my desk at work and a coworker stopped by. He asked it they were Optimus Prime and Optimus Primer(as in paint primer). I thought that was pretty funny.

Oy, now I just noticed why I wasn't getting emails about this thread. I never checked Notify me when a reply is posted... D'oh!

I got mine at the Westland Target. There was a odd situation where someone that worked there asked me if they can help me and on a whim I gave them the number and they checked it out and brought them out for me. Any other time I ask it's the sam ol' "What's on the shelf" line.

Grabbed two, thanked him and that was the end of it. As far as I know they put it back in the stock room.

I got a set from there yesterday. I went and checked the DCPI, went to the furniture area, found an employee, and he brought one out to me. No problems.

Rodimus I hope there is only one Legacy book so far, that's all I've read (read it during the summer). IF there are others (besides the comic) I have not seen them yet, but I haven't been looking really hard.

Andrew don't worry, I'll still buy another set from you...good luck with all of your work.

Toy Show in Royal Oak (according to the news). $5 to get in, anybody going? I think they said it was in the Farmer's Market area...I haven't seen any TFs on the news yet, but they look to have a good amount of older stuff.

I should not have hesitated with the hotel thing for Botcon. I can't believe that they have sold out the block already. Not many rooms, or a whole lot of fans are not waiting around. :?

I did some hunting yesterday and came up empty handed. Middlebelt Meijer, A2/Pittsfield Meijer & Target. Nothing of note at all three. Middlebelt Meijer did have wave 2 6" Titanium, so that is some hope that they will carry future waves.

Read Escalation #3 yesterday. The story is not bad, even though they colored Skywarp like Thundercracker for the whole issue (come on!) Overall Esca. is much better than Infiltration.

My opinion on the Botcon hotels is they're playing a supply/demand game with the fans. They want it to seem like everybody got their hotel already, and you're missing out.

i went to the target by my work thursday for the magnus/skywarp 2 pack and i asked the guy over in toys he said they had it but he wasnt gonna bring it out. so i asked another employee and she was gonna get me one but the guy stopped her and said "i am in charge and i say he cant have one cause it is a collectable, and they dont go on shelf till next week." i wanted to kick him in the head. that guy is a dick.

and when i got my comics for the wek i got TF escalation #3, but i am missing #2. the guy at the comic store i go to is trying to get me a copy.
