CJ7, I saw the IronMan 3-pack w/Cap America Armor at the Lynnwood Wal-Mart of all places some time back. Usually the last place to get a decent pick of toys but that is also where I found Big Daddy and Fracture when I turned up empty handed for both at the Everett Store. Might be worth checking out.
Also, for those on the lookout for Halo figs. for ACSS, I believe that this month was the month to start looking for Wal-Mart Exclusive Halo figures. I am not certain about this, it has been awhile since I did my online snooping around for this type of info, but if I'm right it may be worth the extra second or two to check while out scoping for TF's.

Thanks for the Armorhide heads-up CJ7. My car is still out of commision so I'm hoping the stock moves slowly out in Woodinville. By mid-week I may be mobile again. Can't rush rebuilding an engine from the block upwards but when the head gasket blows and the head cracks in 2 places and your engine is a 3.8L V-6 that you can't afford to send into a shop to have worked on, you have to dive in and start redoing it piece by piece. Fun stuff!

Not sure if anyone mentioned it yet, but the Lynnwood TRU has wave 4 TFA deluxes. I picked up the last Swoop along with Sentinel Prime and EG Bumblebee. As of about 7PM they had 1x Sentinel Prime and 1x EG Bumblebee left.

Lynnwood TRU: had just Swoop x1 on the endcap - nothing else of note.

Lynnwood Walmart and TRU were pretty dead on TFs. Walmart did have a ton of Wave 1 and 2 Iron Man figures and one MM Joker.


If anyone can help on this one, I'm looking for the new Marvel Legends Walmart exclusive wave (Build-a-Figure "Ares"). Apparently, it's started popping up - I've seen one forum report and a few on Ebay. Any help would be super-appreciated and likewise, if anyone is looking for any TFs or other toy lines - please post it and I can look on my hunts.

Universe Deluse Wave 3 have hit the shelves at the local Walmarts (atleast one near me). Doesn't look like they wanted to stock them tonight cause the pegs were full, but I busted into one of the cases.

Northenders still get trumped by the southside. Hunt of today:

Marysville Walmart: Nothing in TFs, SW, ML Ares, or Halo 3. That place kills me - it used to be so good.

Everett TRU: Titanium Grimy and Prowl x1 each. TDK Batman/Joker 2-pk x6! They also had a weird assortment of Fantastic Four movie wave 2 figures. I had never seen these before and they look like they could've been good.

Everett Walmart: TLC Indy and TLC Young Indy x3 each, otherwise same as Marysville.

Lynnwood Target: nothing worth noting, one banged-up DCUC Hal Jordan

Lynnwood Walmart: SW CW Wave 2 - Ashoka w/lashes x1, Cody, Oddball, and SBD x2 each.

Lynnwood TRU: nothing worth noting. Same assortment of FF movie wave 2. Weird

Woodinville Target: nothing good

Still about two sets of TFA Wave 4 deluxes at Lynnwood Walmart. The hunt continues.

Anyone still out there? This place has been pretty quiet, even though there is new stuff coming out.

Yeah CJ7, we're still alive out here but the stores sure aren't. I've been keeping my eyes open for your marvel legends figs. but we are hunting in all the same places. My engine rebuild is done but I have to break it in before I can hit the freeway northwards (Smokey Point, Mt Vernon, etc.) or else I have to make the jaunt in stages and turn a 45 minute run into 2 hrs...both ways. Once I do make it up there I'll be sure to let everyone know.
In the meantime, anybody need their cabinets refinished? I've worked all of 1 day in the last month and my wallet is gathering dust. I'm considering signing up for Targets overnight stock team just to have some source of income since the building industry has gone down the drain (along with the rest of the economy).

I am still around but I have had to put collecting on the back burner. I have had to take a second look on what I buy, for too long I was a completest and baught every little new thing that came out for Star Wars and Transformers. I am starting to pay back debt instead of getting my plastic fix! :P

I pretty much am only actively collecting Halo figures at the momment. Thanks for the ehads up awhile ago on the WM exlcuisve 12" figure. I was able to snag one and it is amazing! I'm still looking for the Cyan WM EVA exlclusive, Brown TRU ODST exclusive. And then WM and TRU have joint exclusives of a silver and red Elite, blue and yellow Elite and a Silver CQB. oi!

Glad to hear your car is back together T. Keep hanging in there!

CJ7 can you provide me with a link of what the WM marvel legends guys look like? That way if I see them I can PM you.

Wanted to throw this oppurtunity out there to all of you fellow NW collectors first. I have a one time oppurtunity to save my storage unit but it will require me selling off nearly all of my TF stuff within it to repay the person bailing me out. I have Alternators, Armada, G1, Energon, some RID and Beast Wars, a 98% complete Fortress Maximus (loose figure), a complete DreamWave Productions Transformers Comics series (evrything DW put out plus some exclusive Dealer Incentive and Holofoil covers as well as 2 Autographed covers and a Dynamic Forces Limited Edition sealed cover)
I also have original Marvel TF and GI Joe Comics as well. There are also some home electronics (a ton of stereo speakers, 2 home theater recievers, 2 televisions (a 19" and a 32") and various tools and other home furnishings.
I know that this does not fall into the "Sightings" category and that this is a rather shamless plug for the sale of all my stuff, but since some of it is TF related, I wanted to give my fellow Seibertron.com collectors the first shot at it. I won't be able to give any better idea of what I have until I actually gain access to it again and once that is done I will have a very short time in which to turn the stuff around and repay the person bailing me out. It will probably be just a few short days and then I will be taking whatever does not sell (Toy-wise) to Amazing Heroes Toys in Totem Lake and selling the whole collection to Tysan. The whole situation sucks majorly but it is either this or I have the whole unit auctioned off with no chance of saving anything so I choose to sacrifice the collection. I rebuilt it once before and someday I intend to do it again.

Not a sighting, but wanted to thank T-Mack for the Alts, I have a bad feeling I am gonna have be buying a lot more of these in the near future, they will have a good home. Hope the rest of the sales went well. Good to meet another NW collector.

If anyone down south finds sees Animated Magnus, please let me know (especially at Target so I can waste use the coupon). I've been quiet lately (not much money, and even less to report), but if anyone still needs anything that is out, let me know, I have still been on a pretty good streak of tracking stuff down. About all I am really looking for are some Wave 10 Joes for my cousin.

Not a sighting but I wanted to share my excitement and blow the dust off of our sighting spot. The excitement is that I went to a local Value Village today for a specific power cable, found the cable for 2 bucks and Leader Class Movie Prime for 4 bucks. Only lacking a gun.
All the rest of it was in one piece and all the bells, lights and irritating sounds work like brand new. It was just lying on the floor, unlabeled, so I asked an employee about it and she returned with a sticker 2 minutes later.
Broke as I am I would have been a damn fool to just leave it where some kid could pick it up and do whatever. I felt it my duty to bring Prime to a good home. :grin:

Kinda makes my last few purchases seem pale. I picked up Legends Warpath and Wheelie and a pair of Transformers finger boards at the Everett Wal-Mart this last week. The finger boards had the pics of Dreamwave versions Optimus and Megatron on top of their respective faction symbols with the white background.

And as far as Wheelie goes, I needed him for artistic reasons. I plan to do a highly stylized drawing of him. Something less "tease worthy", think Wheelie on steroids. Something worthy of a Deluxe class figure.
Warpath, he's just plain cool. Especially in his bot mode. Big improvement over the original although he doesn't have that old school, sturdy feel to him.

I'm 2 for 2 on the Value Village runs. Dropped off stuff at the VV on Evergreen way tonight. Ran inside and scored Leader class Brawl minus his barrel for $4.99
Anybody know how to transform this damn thing? Prime was a cinch compared to this guy! :P

Never mind, I'll hand it off to my 9 year old tomorrow. His capacity for figuring Transformers out without the instructions is mind-blowing.

As I posted in the thread for the Target sale.

If anyone in Washington is near a Target selling the Sunstorm/Shockwave exclusives for $4.99, and will be attending Sakura-Con in Seattle next week-end, I'm looking to see if anyone can pick up a set for me. As I will be taking Grayhound from Vancouver to Seattle and Back I just won't be able to get to a Target.

Please PM me if you think you can help, and as I said in the other thread I'm willing to pay $20 for both of them, so you'll make ten bucks off of it.

And he returns!

Ok, ok, settle down. I know I've been gone a long time and you all miss me. It's cool.


No, really, it got alittle dead here so I started posting over at TFW2005.com, sometime in the middle of last year. Long story short, after a pretty decent run there, I got banned for questioning a Mod on a bad call he made. I never got an explanation other than "Banned for questioning a moderator/administrator".

So, I guess I'll just post my TF sightings stuff here. Here's what's happened lately:

I'm sure you guys know most area Targets are pretty bare right now, nothing in TFA or TFU. Lots of Muggs found at most Targets, though. Some are running clearances of 15% off on older TF stuff.

Lynnwood TRU: The usual pegwarmers. There are two sets of the current TFU exclusives - Countdown and the other guy.

Area Fred Meyers stores are sometimes breaking street dates on the ROTF stuff. I've actually found four sets of the ROTF Leader figures at the Redmond Fred Meyers (don't bother going, they were all gone last week when I tipped off another TF collector).

That's all I got for now. I'm probably not doing too much of the ROTF stuff, but will post when I find anything useful.

^Cybs, you need to figure out how to get unbanned or change your name to "The Lone Wolf" over here. I think our posting of sightings in here have prettymuch dried up. Sucks that you got banned.

On a sighting note, not a damn thing new in Puyallup today at Target or Walmart.
