Cleaning out my secret hunting ground, huh, Chzuck!?....lol j/p. Expensive is right though. I actually don't hate Weaponizer Prime. He could be much better (thought about grabbing another just to give customizing a try)and definitely not worth the $30.
Well, that's just Prime...

Found cyberverse commander Ultra Magnus at the Center Rd. Target in Flint today. Left them the Ironhide and Skyquakes brother whom I can't remember the name of. Not much else to speak of.

Dreadwing? Dreadwind? whatever. lol

Ann Arbor TRU had 2 Shockwaves, 2 Primes and 2 Jazzes. They also had a Sky Shadow and a Junkheap. Lots of new Botshot stuff too. That's about it though. Only BBs and CJs in the Prime deluxes and no prime voyagers.

Thought I would share my listing with my fellow Michigan Seibertronians before I threw them on Ebay. I hate to be letting them go but I need the room and could use the $$. You won't find another collection like this in one place any time soon. Conttrary to what the listing says, they have already been returned to their boxes and are ready to go. Hopefully to a good home where they will be taken care of for years to come.

As far as sightings go, nothing new here. Probably going out to grab a Prime jungle gym in a bit. Would have grabbed it last weekend but I can't always afford everything at once. Especially with prices on the rise. Good luck everyone.

Well, my Jet Vehicon won't come until Monday, but I did find another Vehicon at the Carpenter road Target in Ann Arbor tonight. there was also 2 Weaponizer BBs, 1 Hideous Maximus, a voyager starscream and a hot shot.

I just got lucky. It's only the 2nd one I've seen in stores. Rijie got me my first one. then the first that I saw in the store I picked up for tfpredaking. That was back in May. this is the first one I've seen since then. they are few and far between.

Optimus Maximus is a huge piece of crap. Nonetheless, I am a completist and I just had to have him. Oh well. Hindsight is 20/20. Has anyone grabbed the Kreo Prime/Megs 2-pack yet? I saw it at one of the targets but I don't remember which one. $40 is a bit steep.

I got my Jet Vehicon yesterday. This is hands down my favorite figure from the Prime/Arms Micron line. I took some pictures of it. Took one and messed with it in iPhoto and now it can fly!!

There were a couple of FOC Shockwaves at 14/ Gratiot Target yesterday along with a fair amount of Primes and Jazz. I can't believe there have not been any Vehicons in the area yet. I did pick bite the bullet and picked up the Kre-O Battle for Energon set. Simple compared to the first Prime/ Megatron but I actually really like them. I built the alt modes. I did not put the bank together because I think it is kind of pointless.

Hello strangers.

Finally got my hands on some Kreo Blind-Packs today at the DB TRU, about 11:30am. There were only 6 left in the box, and I picked up 3(the others were dupe numbers), ended up with Spinister, Sunstorm, and Waspinator.

I have to say they rock glaciers, Spinister especially. The altmodes are surprisingly well-executed, and they have loads of character.

If they keep this up, I'll admit to having another addiction...

Still want Galvatron and Skorponok from this wave, and I'm very eager to see how the combiners turn out. They are exceedingly fun so far!
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!

found the blind packs today at walmart on adams rd in rochester. got everyone except the one ending in 8. Not sure which is which yet....checked the whitelake, grandblanc and flint (on corruna) walmarts..nothing there....oh accept the starscream and ironhide launchers. Didn't expect to buy them, but I'm a sucker for these little bot shot dudes.

I hope I find those Kreons soon. They're pretty much the only thing I'm looking forward to right now aside from the TRU MPs.

Shouldn't be a problem. I know I got like 9 Sunstorms. It was crazy I kept looking at the bag number thinking that there was no way they were all Sunstorm was there? Thankfully not.

It's sad that you have to cover up the chest detail on so many of them to put on the back accessories. They could have made it more of a collar like the seekers, rather than a vest.

Curious if anyone has seen one of these?? I have NEVER seen one on Ebay or anywhere else until someone gave this one to me. Just an AM radio but wearable. Hmmm...do you think I've got something unique here?

I wouldn't say "unique" exactly. It's definitely a bit harder to come by than some of the other Nasta TF products like the radio with headphones and electric toothbrushes. I'd guestimate its value somewhere around $20-$40.

Here's what it looked like in package (I don't have one, I just found the picture):

Westland and Livonia TRUs have the tags up for MP Thundercracker, which is exciting. Still no Kreons for me, which is less so.

I don't think I care about TC....maybe when I see him...but I already own the oversees/previous version and everything I've heard (no alt head, midsection/shoulders don't lock and move up and down when you move his arms) make me less and less interested. If I thought TRU would eventually discount or clearance him it would make waiting easier...but TRU is still sitting on stuff from 5 years ago.

Don't get me started on TRU exclusives never going on clearance. I'm still pissed they just pulled the 10th anniversary Beast Wars Megatrom/Primal 2-packs rather than even bother trying to clearance them.
