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.

And you are that Asian guy? :lol:

Scored MP Soundwave at the TRU in Burnsville today! They had about 5 MP Acid Storms left.

About 30 seconds after I grabbed him a fella came down the isle and went straight to the MPs. Looked kinda disappointed (?), but grabbed Acid Storm. I felt kinda bad, but I want him too and I got there first (barely)...

MP Soundwave had a price sticker out in the TRU off American Boulevard in Bloomington a couple days ago. But I checked back today and the sticker is completely gone. Really was hoping there wasn't scalpers up here too, but I guess its unavoidable. :/

Unfortunately, I believe we have one in the Duluth area as well. On a lighter note, I found Trailcutter at the Hermantown Walmart today.

Haven't done any sighting for a while. Plymouth Target has FoC Blaster if you missed the first release. There is a Springer as well. Thrilling 30 deluxe are also back. There I saw Hoist, Megatron, and Orion. Also few new BH deluxe I think. Have $10 Target gift card that can use on TF but I still don't know which one I want...... Maybe wait until they have Skids.

Wow, since the site server stuff I haven't gotten a notification from this thread. A lot went on. Fortunately, I wasn't too much in the hunt until today.

I was at the Brooklyn Park Target, Plymouth Target, and Brooklyn Park Walmart. Maybe it's Xmas stuff coming out, but I saw a few gems. My first sightings of legends Air Vehicon happened at the BP Target. I picked up Legion commander Shockwave at the Plymouth Target. And finally, I saw one I don't remember seeing coming out, Beast Hunters Huffer (Legion Commander.) Also of note is that it appears the rest of the Abominus singles are now out in the wild, in case you haven't completed the set or didn't buy the Target exclusive.

I think I'm done for a while now. I don't think I'm going to get any of the Prime stuff any more. There's a few Generations figs, but I'm going with BBTS on those as I don't have time for much hunting anymore being in school for my Masters and getting a promotion. (More work to do. Woot!)

I'll also agree with the consensus: while not perfect, Metroplex is pretty awesome. I have YotD Omega Supreme in Cruiser mode sitting on Metroplex's deck. Looks cool!

Went to Elk River for work related stuffs and stopped at the new super Target. Found new deluxes: Skids, Dreadwing, Waspinator, and ugly golden/muddy Bee. 2 each and they are only $9.99 each. :ic$: I only got Dreadwing since don't really care about others. Well, do care about the Skids but his terrible shoulder problem and kind-of-a-mess body let me decide to pass him.

Just checking in to say I haven't seen much in the SW metro lately. I'm hoping to find Double Dealer, Cosmos, and maybe Rinox at some point though...

Plymouth Super Target has Generations deluxe Armada Starscream, Skywarp, Minicons, and Hoop. Two each I think. Also the huge Predaking is on clearance at $27.48.

From Duluth Target, I picked up Megatron w/chop shop, Starscream w/Waspinator, and since it was on clearance for 9 dollars, the Constructbots Optimus Prime vs Megatron.

Plymouth Target's Predaking is beeped at $13.74 (labeled still at $27.48). Cheaper than a deluxe, so I got one for my son.

Oh! Forgot to mention. Plymouth Target also had a legion jet Vehicon. Honestly it's the first time I saw it in store. I used the word "had" because I bought it. ;)

Not doing any sighting for so long. But yesterday, saw Whirl at Plymouth Target. Didn't pick him up though. And couldn't believe they raise the generation voyager price to $25. BH lines are pretty much all on clearance.

Yea, pretty sad. HTS still has him at $19.99 so if you want him, HTS is the place to go. I still couldn't decide I want him or not.

I gave up my hope on finding Cosmos and Swerve so I ordered them from BBTS. The set is priced pretty much the same as now the retail store will give. Hopefully they will be available soon.
