Plymouth Super Target has 1 Rumble, 1 Kup, 2 Vehicons, and 1 the Bumblebee cyberverse armor whatever thing. These are the rare to me. Otherwise few Knock Out also and all rest I don't care much. Only bought the Kup. Shame on them for raising the price to $17.04. No wonder I couldn't find Rumble/Kup at Walwart since they still have the price at $15.something. But still............................ :-(

The add for the Aldi stores shows TF Deluxes for 9.99. They have TFP Rachet shown in the flyer. I haven't been to the store yet though.

My first reaction is "What the heck is Aldi?" Then after a quick Google search, "What the heck? I drive by one every day on my way to work!" I'm about to drive to the Maple Grove Yard Waste place. I just might have to pop in there and check out the selection.

Okay, indeed Aldi in Crystal has Deluxes for $9.99. Better news is that I saw newer waves, including at least one Arachnid and 2 Vehicons. I got mine from BBTS a few weeks ago, so I left them there. Interesting store...

And I believe they are the only one around here I see who is carrying Dead End and Arachnid.

Thanks a lot Iron Prime. You just save me nearly $8 out of this.

VOYAGER SIGHTING!!!

At the Target in Brooklyn Park are both Ultra Magnus and Tigertron or whatever the pirate lion is...Thundertron?

I left them both as I have them coming from BBTS. Cheers!

I can't be sure if I am actually excited about the toys, or to find something other than Bumblebee. Plus, it's only like 3 dollars more for UM... :shock:

Yes, these days I feel exciting seeing new toys (especially other than BB and OP :-$ ) even though I have no interest in them. But it just feels better seeing something new. :???:

Yeah, really don't like the price hike (well, who likes). The tiny legion/legend class cost more than $5 now. Commander class is close to how much a deluxe class should be and they are even tinier than the scout class. Deluxe class is close to a voyager class and the size is getting smaller. Aldi's price is not cheap, it is just right.

Grocery shopping and that means TF sighting. Plymouth Super Target still has one PRiD Kup. Shame on them still pricing him at $17.04. Others totally don't care. Oh! Vehicon worth mentioning but better get him from Aldi, much cheaper and if still available.

Plymouth Target has one voyager Ultra Magnus. Deluxe class price finally went down to $11-ish. Kup is still there. Went there this morning to pick up Prime season 2.

One complete set of FoC Bruticus figures was available at the Brooklyn Park Target when I went to lunch. I left them there as I got mine a while back from BBTS. There was also one each Prime Thundertron and Ultra Magnus. I have those on the way from BBTS too, so I left them, though I'm considering stopping on my way home from work and cancelling my BBTS order. Oh, and prices are still out of whack. $15 for a deluxe Prime or Foc and $20 for a voyager? :HEADHURTS:

Probably not a news anymore, but since I haven't been doing toy sighting for a while (well, not interest in anything now also), this is sort of new to me.

Minnetonka TRU has GDO deluxe class and voyager class on top of many legend class. I've seen Swerve, Wheelie, Springer, Cliffjumper, G2 Megatron, and Power Dive. Also saw Prime FE Bulkhead, FE Starscream, FE Arcee, FE Terrorcon Cliffjumper, voyager Ultra Magnus, and voyager Thundertron. No signs of MP Prime but Thundercracker still there.

I've been seeing Vehicons start to pop up here and there, and found 4/5 of Bruticus at the Target in Austin.

Still on the look out for SW and Grim though...

Both Maple Grove and Minnetonka TRUs start having FoC data discs (Frenzy/Ratbat and Rumble/Ravage). No Soundwave though. :???: :???: $10.99 for those two tiny figures is quite expensive IMO.

What a find today!

Maple Grove TRU has one FOC Soundwave. Still don't like it but now I know how big Blaster is. Yea, too big to fit with my universe. :-( Also they have Beast Hunters first wave. One each. Bumblebee looks terrible. With all the spikes, he looks like a porcupine. And with all the heavy things around, his body is only a thin panel. Not good. Soundwave looks okay but his coloring looks like a Playskool toy. Wheeljack is the best in this wave. Only bought Laserback and he will be shipped to UK to cheer a friend.

At Maple Grove Marshall, I found one Cyberverse Skyquake! My son is going to love it. They also have few PRID deluxes (Vehicons, Bees, Wheeljack) at $6.99 (and movie deluxe is $7.99 :???: ). There are also two Thundertron and one Ultra Magnus at $12.99. Very tempting but I still didn't buy them.
