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 went to the TRU by Oakland Mall. Had three Dreadwings, and they're on sale! So go there if you haven't found him yet :)

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).

Motto: "Where did I leave my keys?"
Weapon: Laser Scalpel
Got my MP Lambor/Sideswipe from BBTS. He is highly recommended. He's the Sideswipe we imagined we were really playing with as kids instead of the fragile and inarticulate G1 toy we had (I still love them.) I ordered him since I'm worried he won't be released here in the US. I hope I'm wrong, but release here would require Hasbro paying Lamborghini licensing royalties which adds complexity and cost.

I'm predicting we'll see the Nissan Fairlady-Z Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen next since Tomy already deals with Nissan (Alternity line.) It would be awesome if they do the Nissan Onebox Ironhide/Ratchet, but those are some genuinely butt-ugly vans. VW-Porsche hasn't allowed use of their cars before so doubt Jazz and Bumblebee unless they have a change of heart.

Also got Voyager Magnus from HTS and i'm kinda disappointed. He looks good, but feels real cheap. Transformation seems too simple for this level. Not much different than the Cyberverse one. Also, his blue plastic is real light so it's like the entire toy is light-piped. Don't pay too much for him or save your money for FE Prime or Bulkhead.

My wallet's hurtin' too. I just placed an order for Red Alert as well. (I can't resist those flashing hemlet antenna thingys.)

I've been on theFwoosh a few times in the past. I'll give it another look. Thanks.

I have red alert on preorder. Figured if I was gonna get one, I'd rather have him. I just wondered if you were over there...a lot of pics and people talking about how great sideswipe is...just figured you were hitting me from both sides and it's getting hard to resist!

Picked up Terrorcon Cliffy and FE Vehicon at the Royal Oak TRU, and scored 3 RID Vehicons at the Royal Oak Aldi on 14 mile near Crooks.

I left 2 Vehicons at Aldi for anyone here who needs them. They had Hotshot, Airachnid, and Breakdown too.

I also recommend MP Sideswipe. Kind of plain Jane and definitely smaller than you are probably thinking but the Countach alt is fabulous, the transform is surprising, and it is like Doc Bot said, the toy we pretended we had when we were kids. It strikes a great silhouette and is fun. Considering another one for alt mode display.

By the way, iGears Ironhide, Ratchet and Brawn look fantastic when grouped with him. Hard to tell the others are not MPs as well.

Received my MP Sideswipe and G2 FOC Bruticus yesterday, still haven't opened them. I'll get to it this weekend.

Still no sign of the standard FOC Combaticons...

yeah I saw a pic of mp10 along with the igear boys and sideswipe and it looks fan-tastic! I have the weapons specialist and he is beautiful...but once again, I had to make a choice..ratchet or ironhide..couldn't justify spending the money on both...would if I could though! I opened my G2 brute Rij and unfortunately, in combined mode they are very very VERY disappointing. Not a complete surprise based on pics...but somewhat surprising in terms of the cheapness feel they have combined. Individually I am very impressed with 'em though. Just too bad they STILL can't get the combiner standard up.

Grabbed a GDO Hot Spot from Livonia TRU. I left them with one Powerdive and two Megatrons. Still haven't seen the deluxes.

They also had a nice amount of the Prime FE deluxes. At least two of each.

I liberated my MP Prime from layaway today. That only took a half hour of being told to go stand in other places. Seasonal TRU employees are so incredibly helpful!!! :roll:

Dearborn Target(Ford Rd.) has 1ea. PRID Kup, Rumble, Knockout, and 2 Vehicons, and the latest wave of CV Legion, no new Voyagers or FOC. Pretty sure the price was $15.64ea. Picked up CV Skyquake there, the only 1.

Happy Hunting.

Same at Wonderland Target earlier this afternoon. Someone had kindly bent the crap out of all the card backs.

The DB TRU has a dyad of Generations Voyager Megatrons, same for Deluxes Wheelie, Swerve, Cliffjumper. Also a couple of FE Entertainment Packs, and 1 MP Thundercracker. Sundry other stuff...

So, still no sightings of the FE Voyagers via SE MI?

Hope the 'con was okay yesterday...

AA Toys r us has around 40 MP Primes available. There are about 15 cases above the aisle and a whole bunch strewn all over the shelves and floor. I guess he's not rare anymore. I saw a 20% off coupon in the Sunday paper which should help.

Happy Thanksgiving all.

Hey fellow Michi-cons.

For those still looking, saw a Rumble at Ann Arbor-Saline Target today. Also saw GDO Megatron, Hot Spot and Powerdive at Ann Arbor Toys R Us. Surprised they weren't claimed yet over the Black Friday weekend. Toys R Us was just full of lost grandparents trying to interpret their grand kids' Christmas lists.

Thanks for the post! It came in right as I was leaving for lunch, so I was able to run to TRU and grab Hot Spot! They still had a Megatron and they also had PRiD Voyager Ultra Magnus and Thundertron. Looks like they finally got in some new Prime deluxes and voyagers. Only had BB and CJ for deluxes though. They still had a bunch of MP Primes and way too much Dark of the Moon stuff.

Glad to be of service. Didn't notice the PRID voyagers since I was having more fun people watching.

Also found a half dozen Junkheaps at west Ann Arbor TJMaxx if anyone's looking to create an army of junkions.
