Several of the Walmarts in Houston became fully stocked with deluxes TODAY.

My haul today included concept BBs, brawls, bonecrushers, scorponoks, and there were plenty more left including Swindle, Dropkick, and Dreadwing...

I now have a BB for my lil brother, a BB to keep MISB, and a BB to play with... (likewise for Brawl & Bonecrusher)

It was Christmas in Sept this evening...

I'm still missing Barricade though... sigh :-?

Transformers Sightings

Postby darth_paul » Wed Sep 26, 2007 8:09 am

Here in San Anotonio, Walgreens stores are selling knock-off combiners. They are 3 for $10 I believe and they had the Constructicons, Protectobots, Aerialbots and Combaticons. All the sets except for the Constructicons were in various knock-off colors, but for some reason that set had all the cons painted in their normal green and purple just like the real things. The only difference was instead of the silver metal parts they had black plastic, but otherwise practically identical which I thought was cool. I didn't pick them up b/c I don't really collect anymore but just wanted to let others who live in SA know if they don't already.

Which area of Houston are you in mineralblue? I have an extra barricade MISB. I was going to custom him with the flashing lights a la Jin-style but I'm probably too lazy. PM me.

Toys R Us in Longview Texas, is the last place I have seen Movie Blackout w/ Scorpinok. This maybe your last chance to purchase Blackout. Also Target has several Leader Class Brawls in stock.

Visited the Wal-Mart on East Ben White and I H 35 this morning and they had 12 MP Starscreams....Well, now they have 11. They were on the top shelf, to the left of the Transformers pegs.

Thought people might want to know.

Just curious, has anyone seen Universe 2-packs (supposed to be a Wal-Mart black Friday thing)?

I went to a couple of WM stores near me (on last Friday) but didn't see any. They had a lot of other toys but no TFs.
