That's kinda funny. When I asked if there were any in the back, the first thing I was told that they were only doing one per person.

He initially had just one as I walked up at the register (as a gift, he said). Someone mentioned there was one more in the aisle and he went and grabbed that one too. The girl at the counter didn't seem to have a problem with this at all. I guess she may not have known. I'm just glad to have gotten mine now. Wondering if they are going to jack up the price like they did on MP10 Optimus. Glad I got that one at the initial $99.99 price too.

Procured the new Generations Deluxes@the Canton South Target(Trailcutter, Orion Pax, Megatron, left a singular BB; only 1 of each present when I arrived). They also had 2 Sandstorms, 1 Blitzwing and 1 Springer, several Dark Steels, and plenty of the Exclusive Commander and Legion sets. Nothing much else.

Also grabbed an MP SW@ the A2 TRU, last one shelved, there may be more available. 2 Acid Storms remain.

On top of receiving my POL Friday, it's been a TF goodness week. Terminus Hexatron is the hottest of sauces. :)

Happy Hunting.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Rijie Seeking:

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!

The Ann Arbor-Saline Rd Target has a lot of all their exclusives. I love how all the names are mixed up on the Abominus set.

The Ann Arbor-Ypsi Carpenter Rd Target did have the new Generations Deluxes mid-day. Not sure what's left by now. After I grabbed a set, there was one left of each except for Bumblebee.

Didn't see any of the Generations legends 2-packs. A price sticker was up, but has a grey dot on it. Do any of you know what that means in Target-speak?

And still no Orion Pax? I swear he is the last figure I need until the TF4 toys hit the shelves and he is yet to be found in my area...

Amazon just emailed me with an estimated arrival date for my preordered Metroplex of Aug 10. Hopefully I'll see a massive box on my doorstep this Sat. Maybe that means we'll be seeing him in stores soon too.

I've got to dig out some of my World Smallest Transformers from the early 2000's who I think will scale very nicely to him (especially the ridiculously tiny Ravage who came in the equally ridiculously tiny Soundwave).

I'm glad I work in Downtown Detroit. Good stuff! Can't wait to see a figure for the new Prime. Hasbro had better get this one right.

Awesome pics. It'll be fun trying to recognize parts of Michigan in the movie when it comes out.

Ann Arbor TRU had a set of the IDW deluxes for those looking.

Metroplex arrived from Amazon. Wow, he's big. Weirdly, batteries NOT included for something that's over a hundred bucks.

Agreed. Awsome pics. Wish we had some names to go with some of the new Autobots, though.

ALSO: forgot to mention, Predaking came from Target in the mail when I was on vacation last week. Batteries also not included. I love him.

Thank you for the compliments on the pictures everyone. I can't wait for next summer to see this movie.

And thank you , Doc Bot, for the heads up on the IDW deluxes. I needed a little time out anyways so I drove and picked up the last Orion Pax. Cool little figure!

Took me well over an hour to put all the stickers on Metroplex. There's got to be around a hundred stickers to put on and it's not too easy. I think he's probably too big. Make sure you have space for this guy. Transformation is pretty simple, but tough due to his size. His main joints are all tight ratchets that need a lot of force to move. He wouldn't be able to hold his weight without them. It's probably too much for a little kid without adult help.

Anyway, he's really impressive to look at if you have the space. Here's a fun photo I took today of the biggest TF holding the smallest. (It's a WST Ravage for those that don't know.)

Ann Arbor TRU had one IDW Bumblebee. I bought the Trailcutter. No Orion Pax or Megatron. They also had 1 MP Soundwave and 1 MP Acidstorm. There was 1 each of Springer, Blitzwing and Sandstorm.

Toys R Us in Jackson had a couple of MP Acid Storms and Soundwaves if anyone is still looking. Lady there said she thinks they got a bigger shipment than they had expected.

I just picked up Fall of Cybertron for ps3 at Flint Target for $22.00. The sticker said $49.99 but they price match Amazon! I wish I knew they did that earlier.

Five Below
Saginaw, MI

Picked up Transformers RID Prime Ratchet Dual Battle Blades.
One more left.
2 Wheeljacks (I don't know why no one has Tracks.)
2 Rumble

Guy before me grabbed last Airachnid, Vehicon (sorry I don't know if it was v1 or v2). He also found a Cliffjumper and Hot Shot.

I can't believe they have these things for $5.

I didn't get a full inventory but definitely worth checking out one of these stores if you have one.
