Haven't seen the Terrorcons in stores, but they are part of wave 3. I shipped my POL from BBTS and they are among them. Can't wait to finish Abominus. I wonder if I'll have power back by then....

So, I was out and about and thought I'd stop by Toys R Us. I never picked up Swerve, and thought I'd pop in. No Swerve, but buried back behind everything, I found Sandstorm! Woot! He was the only one, sorry. I'll have to cancel my BBTS pre-order.

Then, grocery shopping at Target, I saw 2 Sandstorms for about 4 bucks less than Toys R Us. :evil: So, if you are looking for Sandstorm, there were two at 2:00 on June 30 at the Plymouth Target, Rockford Road and 494.

:KREMZEEK: YAY! I got him now (left my seat right away to the Target when I saw your post). Only one left and I got it! THANK YOU!!!!! They also have one Springer, one blitzwing, one Grimwing, and two Ultra Magnus.

Just came back from Chicago last night. Did stop by couple stores by didn't find any Sandstorm. Did see two Ultimate Optimus Prime and those huge, ugly, non transformable, and non poseable Prime and Bumblebee at TRU. What are those, really?

Brooklyn Park Target has one deluxe BH Skystalker and one Ratchet that are somewhat new to me. TF Shelve are pretty empty there. Didn't pickup anything since what I'm looking for is Gen. Trailbreaker.

Thrilling 30 deluxe!! :KREMZEEK:

Brooklyn Park Target has two OP, two Megatron, two Trailbreaker (bought one, one left), and one Bee. They all looked pretty good but I'm only interesting in Trailbreaker. The yellow plastic on Bee looks kind of cheap, though.

No Thrilling 30 at the Plymouth Target (Rockford Road and 494) last night, but a load of new Beast Hunter and Constructobot stuff. I don't like the Constructobots myself, but my son might like it. He loves Transformers and Legos/Kreos.

Beast Hunter Legends and Legion Commander (or whatever they are calling it) 2 packs are there with weird painted Optimus/Predaking and I think an Abominus pred and Prowl? I wasn't interested in those.

What I was interested in was the Abominus gift pack. Image I guess $24 for the 5 bots is not bad.

Oh, and there was some new deluxes like Skylinx, a Voyager Predacon repaint I didn't recognize, big @$$ Optimus and Predaking and some non-transforming stuff too.

Target was completely reorganizing the Toy Department. I wonder why the Thrilling 30 Deluxes were not out... :-?

[Edit] Oh, and Paul and I discovered in the 3rd party Hexatron thread that we work very close to each other on the NW side of the cities. Anyone else interested in a Seibertron mini-con-lunch-gottafindabettertitle some time?

Sweet news on Abominus/Terrorcon gift back and the repaint to Skylynx! I've been waiting for those!

And it sounds like my Metroplex (early bday present) might come today as well! Yes!

They do that on purpose? :-? I got Sandstorm at Plymouth Target but Brooklyn Park had none. I saw many Thrilling 30 deluxe at Brooklyn Park but Plymouth Target had none. Now Plymouth Target has bunch of new BH stuffs but Brooklyn Park has none. Well, I will say coincident but still........ :-? Good thing these two Targets are both pretty close to me. And yeah, Target really is the go to place now. Few days ago went to Brooklyn Park Walmart and they really had nothing. I even totally ignore TRU now.

Stopped by the toy store in Nickelodeon Universe and found IDW Hoist and thundercracker. When I was there I saw 3 Hoist and 2 or 3 thundercracker's. I left them all there in hopes of finding a metroplex. (And also they were $18 each)

An Asian guy walks in to a TRU (Maplewood) and the lady ask what may I help you look for today. He says you guys have any more MP Soundwave, she says no but we do have that two of those 2 foot transformers and about four of the Plantiums one. Than the Asian guy looked around and walked out with one of each. 1 more Mp Acidstorm too.
