Already have my tickets for Fanfare. Still debating if I'm going to set up at the Xtravacon the weekend before or not. I could use the extra pocket money, obviously, just not sure what kind of turn out there'll be.

If anyone is looking for the GDO deluxes and scouts, TRU.com has them all with free delivery if you spend over $49. Save yourself some gas and order them while they last.

Thanks for that. I was dumb and only ordered 3 which was not enough for free shipping. :BANG_HEAD:

BRAWL, SANDSTORM, and LASERBEAK, if anyone was wondering which I ordered.

EDIT: Can't believe I forgot to order DEAD END/WILD RIDER whoever it was...

Just saw some GDO deluxes at TRU Saginaw. I think I got the last Wheelie and Springer, but several Swerves and at least 1 Cliff left. Also, they had 2 MP Thundercracker.

Found the GDO deluxes at Ann Arbor TRU today. Bad to ask for them to get them out of the back. Grabbed the swerves and wheelies for me and tfpredaking. Left the CJs and Springers. They also had 1 set of the legend figures.

Ann Arbor TRU also has a glut of MP Thundercrackers. They had 4 unopened cases above the aisle as well as a few on display. I guess they're officially not rare. What does this mean for MP Prime?

TRU.com has Dreadwing listed for $26.99 if anyone's interested. Although it is listed as Bulkhead, the picture is Dreadwing. Here is the link: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... d=12448053

Spotted a Voyager Dreadwing at the TRU on 28th Street in Wyoming the other day. Only one, though, and I stuck him on layaway because I didn't have the fundage at the time. Picking him up wednesday, though, and I am STOKED.

Found a Dreadwing at Wixom Target today. Looks like he's slowly coming out. Still at Target's usual 19.99 price.

He's way better than I thought he'd be other than having too many rubbery parts (including the head and face). Definitely one of my favorites. Interesting to transform and show-accurate. I despise the light up weapons. Think of how much more awesome the toy could be if that money could have gone into the figure rather than that weird gimmick.

My wife found one at a Dearborn Target last week that I got for my birthday. The gun is useless, and whenever I hear that point brought up its always disassemble the gun and take out the spring. Then use a small rubber band to bind it in the open position.

What kid is going to want to do that? The weapons on the voyagers are useless.

At least DW comes with a sword.

Westland TRU had the GDO scouts up. I just grabbed a Brawl. Love that mold. I didn't see any of the deluxes but was told they had them. Also noticed the tag for MP Thundercracker is now $74.99.

Yeah I saw that $75 too the other day. Yikes.

I got the GDO scouts online at tru. Brawl is cool I want to head swap him and add on a cannon with a clip to his back to make a bit better Guzzle.

Sandstorm has awesome paint apps. It is so Sandstorm. If only it had a copter mode.

Also got laserbeak. Meh.

Hi stranger. I feel quite the opposite, being rather taken w/Lazerbeak. I only have him and Dead End so far, both are very nice.

Anyway, INCOMING!! Got MP Prime today at the DB TRU, there is one left as of 11:30am. Also picked up the only Dreadwing, and a set of GDO Legends. One full set remains, and one GDO Snadstorm. No Deluxes or Voyagers there yet, regrettably.

Topped it off w/ a 20% coupon. :)
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Rijie Seeking:

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!

Variety is the spice of life. I'm glad that you are enjoying him. I haven't found a reason to really like him yet.

Quite a haul there Andrew.

Hey guys, I know this is a longshot, but if there's anyone here that can help me out with an MP Optimus from TRU I have an extra TRU MP Thundercracker to trade. I'm aware it's not an even trade, so I can make it fair by adding either cash or other TFs.

Let me know if you think we can help each other out!

I think I was the one who must have snagged that 2nd one. I was there a bit before 11am yesterday and he was the only one I saw. There was 1 less case of MP Thundercrackers above the aisle. I wonder if someone would buy an entire case?

They also had several sets of GDO scouts there.
