That's good news. Even though I'm not buying any of them. But it's good to see something other than Bees.


I'd recommend Shockwave. I'm pretty impressed with him. OP and Jazz are surprisingly disappointing.

Shockwave is my current fiddle Transformer as I try to do my homework.

I already have my perfect Shockwave. :grin:

Actually I'm thinking about getting his retool - Fireflight if I ever see one.

You mean Air Raid? (See the pics from SDCC.)

I also have the Shockblast mold, and what you did was outstanding! :)

I think they changed it at SDCC. It caused a bit of discussion in one of those threads. Personally I don't like the change. It probably has something to do with trademarking names or some such...

Well to superior target to look for Foc figures and actually went home with dotm leader sentinel prime. The cool thing is that it was on sale for $20, so I grabbed it since I didn't grab him when he was out last year. But when it rang up at the register, it was only $15! I just couldn't believe the steal it was. There's another sentinel there at the same price.

Nice find! Congrats! He is a good figure - even when bought at full price. :-)

Slightly off topic:
Is anyone else looking for the new TMNT figures? They supposedly released on the 19th...

Wow! Plymouth Super Target surprised me with a lot of new stuffs. That's really good. They have 2 Powerizer Optimus Prime, 2 Powerizer BB, 3 Cyberverse Optimus Maximus, 2 Knock Out, 2 Hot Shot, 3 FOC Optimus Prime, 3 FOC Jazz, 1 FOC Shockwave, and some new Bot Shots box set. Even though bought nothing, I'm glad to see something new.

I actually found them the other day - forgot to say so though. There is a thread about the new TMNT stuff in the general discussion boards. The turtle figures are pretty top notch though imho.

Just got back from Duluth Target, and I found FOC Optimus and Jazz, Cyberverse Optimus Maximus, , PRID weaponizers Prime and Bumblebee, and the new Botshot six pack. Naturally, I had only enough to get rabbit food that I was sent to get.

Nothing new at Clouqet walmart except that someone actually bought a prid bb.

Off topic: Iron Prime do you have the DCPI number for the new TMNT figures? I the targets around here are holding out on them.

As a completionist, I did buy PRID BB today at Superior Target. Other stuff I got was PRID Dead End, which I love, and two Cyberverse figures of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.

At Plymouth Target, found the new Kre-O with the black Bumblebee, Optimus Prime VS Megatron, Barricade with Autobot Troops, and Cliffjumper with Vehicons. I also saw two Cyberverse Wheeljack with his plane.

I picked FOC Jazz and Prime, and I really do not like this Prime. He is too small for a Prime.

I quite agree. Prime is really too small, too bulky in the wrong areas, and just doesn't feel very good. I think it could look alright for a cybertronian mode Ultra Magnus. I think Seibertron's comment about the G1 Prime looking more human with the windows representing pecs and the grill looking like abs is right on. This one just doesn't look right, even in the game.

Jazz was a dissapointment to me too. The legs look to small and spindly for his upper body.

Shockwave was definitely the best in this series, in my opinion. I still fiddle with him and am considering a second one for my son.

Pickings around the Northwest metro area have been better lately. I've seen the driller and Wheeljack ship playsets. Optimus Maximus is in several stores (I'm hoping for him to go on clearance so I can paint him up as a Prime Metroplex.) Lots of botshots, which I don't care about. Yet, still no vehicon...

For right now, I'm eagerly awaiting my Kabaya Fort Max. I'm too poor to buy a G1 on eBay or if they do an Encore. He looks like a lot of fun.
I once read that self deprecating humor is a sign of intelligence.

Snagged a foc Shockwave at Superior Target back on tuesday. Also noticed that Clouqet Walmart was doing there reset.
Also got a tfp cv energon driller at Clouqet walmart for $13.

Also I'm making my yearly trip to Lakeville next sunday (the 19th)and I'm wondering what the best stores are in that area right now.

Hrm....I don't get down there much these days. I think there's a Toys R Us over in Burnsville, but I haven't been there since I bought my daughter's bicycle 2 years ago. There's a SuperTarget on Cedar and Hwy 50 in Apple Valley that I've had some good luck with, but I haven't been hunting there since Christmas. If you come through the north side of the cities on the way, the Brooklyn Center Target's been restocked lately, except for deluxe RID Prime, unless you want to help me out and buy the 9 Bumblebees that have been there the last 6-8 weeks.

Happy hunting!
