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.

i don't know why I still want the American MP 10 Prime, I already have the Japanese version. Maybe just an extra in case I wear out my Japanese one? lol

Also I found a legon Commander Skyquake at the Davison Meijer. Didn't have any more though. I've been getting really lucky at Meijer with the Prime Legon and Commanders.

Just leaving TRU Flint (1pm). They have 1 MP Optimus Prime! They also have 1 Prime/Megatron pack with the kids, a first edition starscream and arcee, 5 MP Thundercrackers. They're all at the end cap of the isle, just around the corner from a bunch of bot shots. Call and they can hold anything til the end of the day.

AA Toysrus has those weird Transformer Christmas ornaments already. Less freaky appearing in person. More ornaments for that TF themed tree!

Also, the new Five Below there had a bunch of old DOTM mechtech voyagers and small human alliance toys for $5 for anyone still interested.

I didn't know we had five below...I don't think I've ever been in one...hmm...gonna have to check those out..if just to see.

I was down at 12oaks tru and saw nothing of interest. Here's hoping we see bruticus soon. I like the looks of the individual bots..not so sure about combined though.

Hey, has anyone seen the neca Jason from Friday the 13th. If so, can you grab me one...I'll be at fanfare on Friday if someone picks up and can meet....that guy is really eluding me. I think I need to get a chick topless and on top of a bunk bed in order for him to show up! ;)

The Five Below just opened where the Borders used to be. I'd much rather have a bookstore there than an over glorified toy store for tweens, but at least the spot isn't sitting empty like where the old Circuit City is.

I got the Bruticus wave from BBTS a few weeks ago. I'm mixed about him. He's impressive to look at, but they cut a lot of corners in the engineering. I applaud Hasbro for making separate large and unique Combaticons, but it could've been so much more awesome. I'm not going to bother with the Autobot remold of him. The best value might be getting the G2 version set. I still hope they sell well since it will encourage Hasbro to make the other combiners.
