Many welcomes.

Addendum: I really, really like that Botcon Obsidian. :-B Don't want to have to buy the set just for that one...then again, who is Obsidian w/o Stryker...

^^^Such a righteous custom. :BOWDOWN:

Procured a singular Ramhorn Disc set@the Dearborn WM today at lunch. Peculiar that it was the only Autobot set there.

The AF section at that place is a wreck...

I saw the new wave of BH Deluxes at the Grand Blanc Walmart. I believe they were $12 something. They had at least one of each. Starscream, Bulkhead, Ripclaw, and a Smokescreen. If you can only get one of those, I'd pick up the Ripclaw. My fav of the bunch.
But in more exciting news, I got my Toyworld Hegemon in the mail today. Bought it on Ebay $115 with free shipping. Only took 3 days to get here from Hong Kong. Great figure! I just need to tighten up the shoulders a bit.

14 John R tru had a kick back... In the back... He is mine!!! But as a side bonus if you do not have sideswipe, starscream, or air raid. Yeah. They are there.
Generations
3x sideswipe
2x air raid
2x starscream

Heads up to would be hunters ask the people that work at tru if there is a case of the new stuff there. They will generally go look for ya... Walmart, target, and meijer... What you see is what you get.

Was out and about in the Canton/Westland area today. Target on Michigan Ave had BH wave 2. There is 2 Smokescreens, 1 Ripclaw and 1 Bulkhead. I picked up Rip Claw. Target on Ford road had FoC wave 3. There was a Kick-back this afternoon. They were all on the opposite side of the aisle from the Transformers. Westland Target had a BH Smokescreen, Starscream and Bulkhead. One of the stores I went to also had a bunch of the FoC Combaticons. Good hunting!

Ooh. Beast Hunters deluxes are $10 at Target this week. Might be time for me to revisit the Prime line.

hit the taylor walmart yesterday. that place is like a secret goldmine for hard to get figs. got my baest hunters smokescreen and saw a FoC kick back along with the rest of 2 cases of wave 3. i think there were like 4 Umags, 3 sideswipes, 2 starscreams, 2 air raids as well. oh and all the cyberverse BH line on the shelves too.

im very pleased with smokescreen and think it's neat his armor parts are rubber and not hard plastic.

Well, the end of my TF hunting is almost here. Just waiting on Leader(I know it's called something else)BH Optimus, Generations Orion Pax, Generations Legends Optimus, and a couple of Bot Shots Optimii. After this, my 12+ years of collecting Optimus Prime will be complete. I will still be happy to help out in hunting down any TF's you guys may need.

Please check out the B/S/T forum from time to time as I don't know the fate of my non-Optimus figures as of right now. These are mainly Generations and Prime deluxes and also a decent collection of BB's throughout many series. Who know's, I may have something you need.

It's been great having all the help over the past few years in hunting down the ones' I've needed. I appreciate everything. 'Til all are one.
Well, that's just Prime...

I just picked up Commander class Hardshell at the Center Rd. Flint Target. I left 1 Hardshell and 2 Trailcutters. Hardshell is pretty cool. I really wish they'd come out with a Voyager class one..

Would anyone be interested in the Bot Shots Dragon Set? I picked one up just for the Optimus figure. Everything else is still sealed in the box including Megatron. I am only asking $10. Thanks

Also posting in the B/S/T forum but would just like to deal locally with no shipping involved.

I found the new legions at Saline Walmart. Picked up the only Hun-Gurr I saw but there are still some Soundwaves and Prowls there.

Also saw FOC Grimlock and Soundblaster at the AA-Saline Meijer.

Picked up BH Shockwave at the Flint WalMart on Corunna Rd. They only had the one.
He's a good Shockwave. I'm glad I didn't buy him on line. He's (in my opinion) not worth any more than the $22 shelf price.

Saw the Hun-Grrr wave of legions@the Allen Park/Taylor Kmart, bought both HGs, the rest remain. They were only $4.99ea. The price there were outstanding, period, save for Deluxes, which are marked $18.99. #-o

Oh, and they also had 1ea Generations Grimlock/Soundblaster, marked@19.99ea(wow!).

Happy Hunting.

Found Beast Hunters Shockwave at the Ann Arbor/Saline road Target. There was one left as of 4:30pm. I had a $3 off a $10 or more purchase of Beast Hunters figures. Plus the 5% off from my Target Red Card. Pretty cool. He's a cool figure. Haven't had a chance to transform him yet. I'm pretty much done with Transformers now until we start seeing Sprinter and Metroplex now.

Kmart on 12 mile and John R had cyberverse hun-ger, soundwave and prowl...not much else. TRU on John R and 14 mile had an FOC Starscream. Target in madison heights didn't have anything. Toy hunting has been sooo boring lately

It's nice to see deluxe prices coming back down to the $12.99 range at Target and Walmart. I picked up a FOC Kickback at Wonderland Target. Looked like a fresh case of that wave.
