Well I got back home earlier today and unpacked.

Now the stuff I saw but didn't get : all of the new cyberverse stuff that was found this weekend at forest lake and pinecity walmarts. The Skyquake looks awesome.

Things I got that aren't tf related: glow in the dark batman tshirt, ghostrider tshirt, Sonic the hedgehog comic and 2 figures pack with shadow and silver, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Tru exclusive Ezio figure(which I highly recommend if you like the games)

Now the transformers that I bought at a garage sale. On my way back home my family stopped at a garage sale. In the back of the garage was a box full of loose tfs. I found something with gold crhome. I pull it out and it's a transmetal waspinator missing every limb and had a cracked wing. I dug around for a half hour and I found everything for the figure. While walking to a table pay for waspinator I found another box full of unopened tfs. All were movie toys that I already had or didn't want except for one. The one was beast wars transmetal walmart edition rattrap. Also I ordered a replacement wing off of eBay and it arrived last Friday.

So total of all my purchases my trips was $62.

Total for tfs $8.


Now to wait for Prime deluxe wave 5. I want Kup and rumble, a lot!

Was at Brooklyn Park Walmart yesterday for batteries, so why not do some toy sighting. Some rares (at least to me), they have two FoC Shockwaves and one PRID Soundwave. They also have PRID Ratchet, Arcee, and Hot Shot if you missed them. Couple FoC Jazz and I think FoC Optimus Prime is the next shelf warmer. Also voyager Bulkhead and Starscream. They dare to price the deluxe at $15.49 which is more than Target I think.

Just got back from West Duluth Kmart, and they have Rumble, Soundwave, Knock Out, Cliffjumper, and Vehicon (actually no Vehicon because I snatched him up).

Thanks to prowlalpha I snagged the tfp rumble at west duluth kmart. I quit like him except that the price was $18.99 thanks to the dvd (which was loose cannons)but it is cheaper than online so yeah.

No Problem, if it wasn't Vehicon, I wouldn't have picked it up at Kmart because of the price.

Is the one near Northtown closed too? I know the one in New Hope finally bucked the kicket. The only other one that I can think of off the top of my head is in White Bear Lake.

Don't know. I haven't been there for toy hunting for very, very long. According to google map, there is another one in Anoka. But I never have interest going there.

No one does... *ba-dump-bump....clang*

Actually, Anoka's pretty cool. They have one of the best Ice Cream shops ever. And in the summer they have (or at least used to have) classic cars that cruise up and down main street on Saturday evenings. It's been a blast car watching a few years ago.

So...next summer, if you want to try hunting at that Kmart on a Saturday evening...

Feeling tired and think I need some fresh air...................

Maple Grove Marshalls has 4 packs of the Ultimate Battle set (the classics deluxe class Optimus Prime and Megatron). They also have 2 Generations Sky Shadow and few Generation Wheeljack. Then some random DOTM leftovers.

Brooklyn Park TJ Maxx has much more DOTM leftovers including a leader class Ironhide.

Brooklyn Park Target has one FoC Shockwave, couple Jazz, and many Primes. Oh, if you missed out PRID BB, they have at least 10 of him over there. :HEADHURTS:

Think I have enough fresh air.................

At Plymouth Target while getting the Avengers DVD, also found and got Prime voyager Dreadwing. Only one though. If you are still looking for FoC Shockwave, they have two.

FoC OP, Jazz, and Shockwave are reasonably easy to find in the SW metro if anyone is still looking.

Thanks, guys. Didn't see Dreadwing anywhere, but was at about 8 Targets and one Walmart yesterday looking for Avengers 3D. (Biggest movie of the year and no Target is carrying enough 3D sets. Grrr. :evil: ) Pretty much each one has the old stand buys: BB everywhere, the first wave of FoC, the usual Powerizer Voyagers and the same Cyberverse as usual, though I did see a couple of the Arcee repaints. Looks like I'm going online for everything I want these days, though I might keep a lookout for Dreadwing...

Again, I consider my self lucky. I was there about 9:00 in the morning, they only have two the ultimate copies (3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digial copy + Target only special features) with only $19.99, same price with the regular version. I grabbed one and then almost right away another guy came and grabbed the other one.

I'll see if I can swing by any this week. The one in Maple Grove (converted Babies R Us) has been notoriously lacking in any Transformers. Maybe I'll grab lunch near Northtown this week, and Minnetonka is not far from my house.

The Maple Grove TRU/BRU is almost just right besides me, can even just walk there. But now I don't even bother step in with all the stuffs that not interest me (plus I know one of the worker in there and sometimes I try to avoid going there too often). Think I may can stop there today (and say hi.........).

Okay, the Maple Grove TRU/BRU literally has nothing new except four MP Thundercraker (on the back isle). Otherwise, pretty pathetic. Also paid Brooklyn Park Walmart a trip in hope of finding a Prime Kup. They are even more pathetic.

Wal-Marts and Targets near my took a major price jump: $15 and $17 for deluxes. Looks like I won't be getting much for the foreseeable fututre except for my absolute faves... :shock:

Yeah, there was a discussion on the front page about that. The thought is that maybe they are price jumps for the upcoming holiday season so that the stores can claim extreme sales. This might kill my plastic crack habit...
