After taking a small break from collecting I found a shelf full of AOE deluxe size figures at the Cloquet Wal-Mart. There was 1 full case on the shelves, so there was 2 of every thing until I grabbed a Scorn.

The Target in Duluth received a lot except for Drift. They even have the hex bugs. I picked up a Crosshairs and a Slag I meant Slug.

Champlin Super Target has two Lockdown, two Strafe, two Drift, two Slash. Thought about Lockdown (because of the car mode) but still pass him (because of the robot mode).

I thought the robot mode was kinda cool, what with the face cannon. Thanks for the update!

I think that was the only attracting feature. :D I'm just not sure if I want to get a TF but keep him in vehicle mode most of the time. Well, if there is a sale at $9.99, I may get one. My son actually got one and they will be back tomorrow so I will get my hands on it.

Shall I keep my hope on finding Generations Arcee and Chromia at Target? I know I can get them easily from BBTS/TFSource but for some reason, I want to take a break from my online toy shopping. :)

I don't blame you. I have gotten kinda crazy recently with 3P stuff. Computron may well be my last for a while.

I will keep an eye out on the ladies and post ASAP if I run across them. I have them on order from BBTS because I cannot take the time to hunt right now. So that will be two for sure left on the shelf in the area.

Cheers!

Same here. After MMC Predaking, there aren't much 3P stuffs I'm interesting in right now plus I need to control the spending. MMC's Elita-1 maybe, but not in the hurry. I passed on MT's Computron. Not really a fan for that character anyway. And I never like TFC's products. However, Hasbro's Gears disappoints me a lot (what a tiny face). So I'm thinking about getting iGear's one.

And Brainstorm! ;) Or maybe you can just grab for me if you see one since I know we are kind of near each other. :lol: Just kidding. Thanks for keeping an eye out. I might pay attention on HTS too since individual figure price from BBTS tends to be higher.

Was TFC making a Computron too? I only knew of MT and Warbotron. Computron would just about complete my G1 gestalts, unless someone puts out a top notch Pirannahking (I probably badly misspelled that.)

Hey, I'd be willing if you absolutely needed it. We have talked about in the past having a MN Northside meet-and-greet. Maybe someday. My kitchen remodel and Master's Degree are occupying much of my time right now...

No, not Computron. I mean for whatever they are making. :D

Combiners I have FP upgraded Bruticus, FP upgraded Superion, MT Devastator, MMC Predaking, and homemade Nexus Prime. The only one I'm targeting is Hasbro's Menasor next year.

Mine is church life and floor (from carpet to laminate with all new base board and base shoe) and new stairs with new railings. :D Life is busy.
