Congrats Tony. Is this Middlebelt and Plymouth in Livonia? Not familiar with Wonderland descriptor.

Yeah. I just use Wonderland because that was the old Wonderland Mall area.

Bad news for me, but good news for others. Extravacon had no tables left as of Wednesday. I'm first on the waiting list. Nothing canceled as of today. That means no TF stock clearance sale by me. Sorry.

Did score my MP Tigertrack(s) in the mail today!

Andrew if you ever have a second I'd like to catch up. Same with Tony, Todd, Chad, Glenn, and anyone else. I know we've moved on since 'the good 'ol days' but it would be nice to hear from, and even chat with you all. I mean Todd's a dad!!!!

Wanted to check in and convey thanks to TT24 for the great deal on the RID Car Brother repaints. Good seeing you again!

This is probably a futile request, but if anyone here comes across an extra set of Botcon Rainmakers, I'm interested in emancipating them...

Happy Independence Day, all and sundry!
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

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!

You're welcome Andrew. Thanks for the business and conversation.

I also want to say thanks to Moneycon for his purchases. I hope you are enjoying them. Botcon and the very few toy dealers last Sunday really helped me sell some toys. Thanks again all.

No extra seekers Andrew sorry.

Argh. All these sitings and the old crew at Xtravacon and I got unsubscribed from the topic!! Yes, it would be great to get the crew together for some fun. I am a dad and it's fantastic! He is 8 weeks old today!

no new sitings for me. Low on funds(see above about baby) but still on the look out for Sandstorm. Ann Arbor/Saline Rd. Meijer did have 2 Blitzwings as of yesterday afternoon.

Saw the new BH Voyager Megatron at the Lapeer WalMart today. Picked up the Ultra Magnus. He's a lot better than I thought he would be.

There was a Voyager Magnus and a couple of Springers at Roseville Walmart Yesterday. Not really anything else that could be considered new. I'm just waiting for the Generations Orion Pax to show up. He would have been the end point to my collection had they not redesigned Optimus for TF4. Damn you Michael Bay...you're gonna really hit my wallet, aren't you?
Well, that's just Prime...

Hey all,
Saw a Sharkticon Megatron, Blitzwing and Springer at Woodhaven Walmart on Allen Rd. I picked up the only Sandstorm. He's awesome. :KREMZEEK: Also grabbed BH Magnus.

Also saw a couple of Voyager Shockwaves and a couple of Smokescreens at Southgate K-mart on Fort. I picked up one Smokey. There was one left.

Finally procured a Sandstorm from the Taylor WM. They had 1ea Springer/Blitzwing remaining. The Dearborn WM has 2 Springers/1 Blitzwing, and a full set of the Wreckers(as of about 11am today), the only caveat being that they are still at full price.

Happy Hunting.

Amazon's got Sandstorm for 22.99 now if you want to save on gas. I've got Amazon Prime so it works best for me (Now that I think about it, Amazon Prime would be an awesome Autobot name)

I got Blitzwing and Springer when they went up on Amazon and the good thing is that the cost of both qualified me for free shipping. So, win-win. If there's another Voyager you want, it's worth it. I don't hunt often but I was on a mission one day for a Sandstorm. :)

Livonia TRU had a Construct Bot Bumblebee. I didn't see any others. I didn't know those were going to be $25. Easy pass at that price.

Livonia Walmart North had a full set of FOC Wreckers.

The Farmington Target still has 3 of the Predacon Rising two packs. Still no sight of the giant Predaking, though.

Ann Arbor/Saline Road Meijer had 3 Blitzwings and 1 Springer as of 8:45 this morning. I liberated Sandstorm. tfpredaking got me a Sandstorm(thank you, thank you!), but it had a crooked pin in one of the ankles. It looked like it would break the hinge after a few transformations. So I exchanged it for the one there. Nothing else new.

Man, I love these guys!

Haha! the guys over on the TFW thread are bitching that the 2 that Flint got were sold out. I'm sure they think it's a scalper. You should go over there and post a picture! :grin:

Cool that you found one!

Motto: "Where did I leave my keys?"

Congrats on the MP Soundwave. I'm losing hope of getting one. AA TRU had only 2 today and were immediately bought at opening. Looks like the distribution will be few and poor. From what I can postulate from the business side, Hasbro doesn't make much money off of them since the MP toys actually belong to Tomy and Hasbro purchases it from them. Also TRU doesn't really care since they would rather pack their semi's full of back to school supplies than collector toys at this time of year. If they really thought they could make cash off of it, they would have pushed it to the Christmas time frame and there would've been tons of boxes full of them like when MP Prime came out last year.

Although expensive, the only way to guarantee getting MP toys are preordering the Takara ones as soon as they get announced (and I'm sure there's no way Hasbro will be bringing the Autobot cars over - very little profit as well as seeking auto-maker licenses).

On another note, I bit the bullet and bought the remainder of the Abominus legends off of eBay. I was hesitant paying extra for them at first, but once I had them in hand, I felt a huge wave of nostalgia since it brought me back to when I was a kid and saved up my money to get both the original G1 Abominus and Computron. The colors are spot-on (except for Hun-Grrr). Felt like a little kid again. I guess that's why I collect.
