Found a Terrorcon Cliffjumper at Westland TRU. They had a couple Starscreams and Arcees left. Nothing new to report today.

Scored@the DB TRU at lunch today. All 3 GDO Voyagers, 2 FE Vehicons, 1 FE CJ. There was a set of the 4 GDO Deluxes, some Legends, and the rest to the FE case left. This was about 11am. Still 2 MP Thundercrackers.

Happy Hunting.

I bought 2 Vehicons a couple weeks ago and kinda regret it. The Robots in Disguise Vehicon is so much better. I'd set ya up with one ChZuck, if you were a little closer to Flint.

Have to agree, PRID Vehicon is the better of the two.

Lucky finds. I'm trying to decide if I really want the PERSEUS set or not. HUge chunk of change, but I really REALLY like the set and the colors scheme.

I just wanted to remind everyone about Liberty Local tomorrow at the Ann Arbor Art Center. It's from 10am - 9pm. It only costs $1 to get in. I'll be there selling my Transformers photos. You can check some of them out here: http://theoptimusclub.tumblr.com

There's also going to be a lot of fantastic artists there. Come check it out!

Found the FE deluxes at Ann Arbor Toys R Us today. PRID Vehicon is so much better. FE Vehicon looks OK but just isn't as fun to transform. Legs and back kibble just doesn't look that good.

They cranked up the price of MP Prime to $120! I guess they realized how in demand they are. They had at few on the shelves.

Also, noticed the combaticons and Kup are available at HTS for those who want to save on gas.

A lot of people over at the fwoosh are getting them to honor the sticker price which says 99.99, but I guess we don't sticker anything in this state anymore...so I guess that whole comment was pointless.... :roll:
1984 was a good year!

Got a secret for the Michigan faction. Aldi has tons of PRID deluxes for 9.99. TONS of Vehicons available for those of you looking.

On my way back from Michigan State to the Shelby area, I stopped at a TRU in Novi. Had six Masterpiece Primes up above the TF section in their boxes with the 99.99 sticker on them so I was able to get it for the non-raised price! So anyone who is looking for Prime, there's five left but now the manager took the stickers off the boxes, so you'll hafta pay the 120 price-point. But hey, it's better than eBay prices!

Yay just put in my preorder for Fansproject Steelcore. They're doing a limited second run if anyone is interested. I think the website is fansprojectcore dot com. If you register on their site, you get $10 off the price. That almost covers the shipping.

had a great time at detroit fanfare this weekend. there were only a couple of dealers with bots but one of them sold an entire FOC bruticus set to a guy i was standing next to. I ended up making a new friend from the TFW boards as well and he sold me an extra RID vehicon he had. oh, and grabbed GDO wheelie and cliffjumper from the dearborn TRU friday night before i went to the show. i'm hating the heads on these things so far.

For anyone interested, 5 Below(Allen Park) has a metric ton of DOTM HA Deluxes, $5 a pop. (Back of the store.)

Not sure which wave, but I did see a Sandstorm. Case fresh packaging for MISP.

Picked up Halloween candy there. :P

Yay I got my MP Sideswipe from bbts! He is what the Alternator line should have been. Great figure all around in my opinion. Although $90 is a little steep for him. $50-$60 would have been a tad more reasonable. :P
A big plus for me is that theres a lot more transformation than what I thought there would be.
The only other "sighting" I had was the Fall of Cybertron Combaticons on the Toys r us website.

I found a Voyager Ultra Magnus at the Carpenter road Target in Ann Arbor. They also had a Thundertron that was still there. Didn't expect to find Magnus before Dreadwing. Glad I found him though. I hit 2 TRUs, 3 Targets and a Walmart in the Hall Road/Utica area yesterday and found nothing.

Dearborn TRU has a healthy selection of GDO Legends, Scouts, and Deluxes. No Voyagers. They also have 1 FE Entertainment pack.

Happy Hunting.

Just this week at the Cadillac Meijer store, they put out a box of Kre-O Microchanger blind bags for their Stocking Stuffer display! Managed to get the last ones I was missing, and there's still plenty left! All priced at $2.99 each (but you already knew that I bet XD).
