Went to TRU times SQ today there is 6 MP Thundercrackers for 69.99. go cancel your BBTS preorders. TRU has plenty of these guys.

Was there today. They had at least 30 of them when I was in the store at 5:30 this afternoon, likely more. I didn't stop to count, but he was everywhere.


Yep saw that today when i went to see if they have any of the new Prime voyagers. it is officially shelfwarming... My fear now is that they won't order the Masterpiece prime until these sell out... =/ this happened with their prime deluxe wave.. still haven't seen on vehicon, think they skipped that wave altogether.


i found Vehicon at Target and i bought 2 of them but it was the last 2 on the shelves =(

TRU Time SQ had GDO scouts. well I brought the only thing I saw which was a scout sandstorm. it was 11.49 but priced matched it to 9.99 at the counter. I feel we should all price match at this TRU cause they overcharge for most of their stuff.
still not Vehicons... don't think they'll ever sell out of their prime deluxes to order more waves. no MP Optimus yet.
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

I've got 2 Prime Vehicons MIB, not the FE mold, but the newer mold, for trade. I'd like to trade for combaticons, Foc Vortex, Onslaught, or Blast Off.

I also have....

DOTM Skyhammer loose complete

MP Starscream G1 colors one very slightly chipped wingtip (the small blue wing fin)

G1 Grimlock all weapons, arm joints slightly loose but otherwise very good condition

HFTD Leader class Battle hooks Optimus Prime

War Within Megatron missing stand, but in perfect condition

G1 Megatron all accessories, one piece of the butt stock if broken off, stickers are worn and joints are decent.

DOTM Deluxe Bumblebee


Generations Thunderwing all accessories great condition.

Cyberverse DOTM Optimus Prime

Fox kids repaint deluxe Dinobot loose complete great condition

Hey everyone, Hope you are all alright now that Sandy has passed. I just got my power back today thankfully.

As far as sightings go, I spotted Vehicon at both Levittown Target and Broadway Mall Target. Broadway mall also had Thundertron and Ultra Magnus. I'm passing on both of those, but I did pick up a Vehicon. He comes with an episode of the show (Loose Cannons) which I guess is their way of excusing the slight price increase (was like 16 and change).

I'm holding out for the Generations Bructicus bots and Airachnid and I'll probably pick up Dreadwing and Bulkhead from RID and Optimus from first edition if I see him. Gotta start cutting back on Transformers sadly.

If any of you guys missed out on these guys, The Christmas Tree Shop has them:

The one near me also had Optimus (with the sword accessory) and Starscream.

If you have kids into play-doh, they also had the movie-verse play-doh kit. They're $7.99, but i found one that was mis-priced for $1.99 and picked it up for Toys for Tots <3

I just picked up the new TF Prime Voyager Thundertron at one of my local Toyrus' in Rochester NY. It was the last one they had so I don't know when they will be getting more. That toyrus also had A LOT of the masterpiece thundercracker figures and I saw a lot of the cyberverse commander skyquake figures (Not sure if it's new) there and at my local target. This is my first post so I don't know if any of this information is even helpful to anyone but I figured I would post it lol.
