Minnetonka TRU has BH voyagers; 1 Prime and 3 Predakings. They also have FOC Soundwave, Soundblaster, and discs. BH deluxe I saw one Soundwave and one Bee.

Didn't really count the numbers. Brooklyn Park Walmart has first wave BH voyager class, deluxe class, commander class, and legion class figures. No second wave like others sighted (which is what I want). :( They also have FOC Conbaticons and Grimlock and Blaster. I only bought legion Smokescreen for my son. Still couldn't justify the FOC Blaster since it is still too large for my taste.

Do you have Soundwave? I vowed to only get one, but ended with Soundwave, Blaster, and Soundblaster. Yes, I know that makes me a bit of a sucker. But it really is a great mold even it if it's a bit large. And the data disc gimmick really is kinda cool - a nice homage to the originals.


Just my $0.02

I concur. I have all three, plus the WfC Soundwave. It's kinda cool to have Soundblaster in vehicle mode, WfC in boombox mode and Soundwave and Blaster in bot modes. Blaster looks great! I love how the chest pieces look.

Now, the data discs are a cool concept, but are not executed very well in Steeljaw and Ravage, in my opinion. Ravage doesn't fold up for me. (I ended up buying another set to try to fix this.) and Steeljaw has a strange hump in his back. Still, the drop transformation gimmick is pretty neat. And the data discs look great in the purple cases.

And even Kentucky has BH wave 2 too. :-( Do snow really delay all of these toy ordering? ;)

Back to Blaster. Yes, I really want to fill the character hole in my universe. He looks so well comparing with MPs but terribly huge with Classics (see picture below). When think of the fact he is taller than Classics Optimus, I just couldn't buy him and put him there. Ah! I hate when situation comes like this. To me, Device Label Blaster is pretty much the perfect size but he is darn expensive. :BANG_HEAD:

Got home from school today and to my surprise my mom picked the autobot and decepticon data discs at the hermantown target. Now that my Blaster has his buddies I need to find a Soundwave.

Brooklyn Park Target has Kreon combiners. All 4 of them in multiple counts. And while their BH deluxe class is on sale at $10 (and plus the $3 off coupon), their TF isle is literally empty. Few FOCs and PRID, but BH deluxe are pretty much gone. If Target don't hide them in the back, I just don't get how they can be all bought that fast, except scalpers involved. Plymouth Target is the same.

I saw lots of stuff in the SW metro over the weekend. Most of the Beast Hunters Deluxe wave 2, lots of BH Cyberverse (picked up Sinnertwin - I forget his new name. Twintwist?).

Lots of Predeking and OP voyagers, now Shockwaves if you're looking for that though.

Still no Autobot datadiscs either. :-(

Where did I end up getting the Autobot Data disks....I think it was at the Walmart in Brooklyn Park. Sorry, I just graduated with a BS and the last week or so have been really hectic, what with finals and all...

Well I had an amazing Easter. My parents surprised me today with a bunch of things I've been saving for. TF wise I got Beast hunters Smokescreen, I got it at Hermantown Target. Other things were a normal size Cosmos Black 3DS and Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon. And got some money from an aunt, so I'm gonna look for Beast Hunters Shockwave tomorrow.

Well it feels weird posting back to back.Well anyways, picked up a Voyager Shockwave today, but once I got home and opened it, and it was broken. So I returned it and thankfully there was another shockwave there so I grabbed it. And this one is perfect, but I would advise not to transform him that often because there are little tabs on the side of his chest piece, that can stress and break easly. Otherwise it is perfect. And I found them at Cloquet Walmart, but there are none left thanks to the busted one. :-(

Shockwave is decent, but I do not like the alt mode. So, he's staying in bot mode.

Iron Prime, are you still looking for the FoC Autobot Data Discs? I ended up with an extra set. (I cannot believe I forgot that I had them ordered at BBTS.) Since I tossed my receipt and do not feel like shipping them back to BBTS, I could part with them.

Autobot discs. If you are still looking for them, Plymouth Super Target has a few.

And Springer at the Target in Chanhassen! (no blitzwing though).

I tried to add them to the sightings tool but didn't see them...

Prolly too new for sightings.

Wowzers!

I'm not into the hunt thing for right now, so I get my stuff through BBTS. Waiting for these two then I'll ship my POL. But if I see anything of note, I'll post it!

Looking for the Autobot data discs. I've almost accepted that I've missed them completely. TRU and Target in Bloomington/Richfield just SUCKS on having anything current. Haven't been to the TRU in Minnetonka in a while or Burnsville, any luck there? ):

Do you get to the north side? I'll check again, but I think a couple of Targets have them. If you wanted to stop by Rasmussen College in Brooklyn Park, you can have the extra set I ended up with. Just PM me when you can make it up there.
