I second that...man, talk about a bunch of freaking nazi's. They sent me a cease and desist order via PM when I posted a thread about your banishment. Anyways, looks like I'll be posting here more often.

Dudes, thank you for the kind words.

Furious, I'm sorry you got a "cease" thing just for talking about me. Man, I most be some kinda badass - look out, that Cyberjet guy is crazy! We can't even talk about him.

Basically, one TFW2005 Mod had slammed a TFW2005 Photo Staff guy. Then when I politely question the Mod that did the slamming, because I thought the Photo Staff guy had a good point, I get banned. It just goes to show how tightly wound up those guys are. First it was a week suspension and then I found out my IP address was banned. I sent them a couple messages asking what happened, with my email addy and everything and no one ever replied.

I've said things 10x worse and never got a slap on the hand so I was trippin' when Jimmy told me the story. The mods there seriously got a stick up their *ss..oh well. not like you can't create a bogus account and start posting again.

Anyways, on a sighting note...not much out in the stores, absolutely nothing really worth mentioning in the south end. Target is finally getting the lastest wave of TFA animated (Waspinator/Samurai Prowl). I did happen to see jimmy and bombatron's ROTF loot yesterday. Those guys will have nothing to buy come May 30th... :grin:

oh yeah..I've been so bored with TF lately that I started collecting Marvel Universe figures. Anyone here got an extra grey hulk or bullseye?

Yea, I was lucky in spotting those ROTF Leaders for Jimmy. Then he told me how he got two sets and then some other board members got the rest before the store closed. And I told Jimmy about them sometime around like 6:00pm that evening - they moved real fast.

As for MU, I've been hunting those for awhile. I haven't seen a Bullseye since I last got mine. I do know that Redmond Comic Stop had a Grey Hulk for $11.99. That was a couple weeks back, so you might want to call and confirm.

Well, we still have tomorrow for sightings - supposedly the ROFT preview figures will drop on Friday. It'll be fun to see how many stores goof and put out other ROTF figures at that time. You know stock people can't read street dates...

so who's going where tomorrow? I'll be up in Seattle again for a job interview at 1...I'm gonna stop by Palace Gifts and grab me a henkei Jetfire then maybe hit up Kicks to talk with Jose. Man, that place isn't looking too good. I hope they don't go out of business...

If Jose tried as hard as the previous owner, he might be doing better. All he ever seems to stock is the larger items like MP. I know recently he got some newer Henkei and Encore, but he's alittle late there. The previous owner had all kinds of Japanese TFs - there was a whole wall devoted to TFs, now it's just a small corner.

I won't be out hunting tomorrow till later in the afternoon.

Anybody hit up Redmond Freddies after the Leaders got cleared out? It would be interesting to see if the store manager was like, "Man we got go stock some more ROTF stuff, all these $40 figures went in like two hours."

Otherwise Kirkland, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Bothell, and Monroe Freddies don't have anything out of the ordinary. I hit them all in the last week and a half.

totally...I don't he's even really keeping stuff in stock. When I picked up my Masterpiece Grimlock from him. He didn't have any left. Plus Sui Wai was way more knowledge about toys and was way better about what he ordered. He always met all his preorders and had extra stock left over to last a few weeks. He's got himself quite a collection too. I bought a bunch of his vintage super robot stuff. That reminds me..I better call that guy. :D

I'm gonna start picking up my henkei stuff at Palace Gifts, the prices are pretty much the same but he's got everything in stock. I think the only ones he didn't have were Skywarp at the mini-bots. He also just got in the Alternity line...pretty sweet but just outta my price range right now.

I was wondering what had happened at Kicks, makes sence if ownership changed. I hope that they aren't possibly closing.

A bit sad for the reason this thread is so active today but i'm glad to see things are still happening in Washington.

Good hunting guys.

Ummm... ok. Crawl back up to Canada, if me coming back to this board makes you so sad. :-x


In sightings today.

Woodinville Target: Has some TFs on clearance:

TFU Ultras (just Silverbolt and Onslaught left): $20.49
TFA Leaders (just Bulkhead left): $30.49
TF Might Muggs (just Prime, BB, and Grimy left): $7.49
TFA Battle Bumpers (lots): I can't remember, but they did have a sticker
TFA Shocky/BB and Sunstorm/Ratchet packs: $17.99

Everything else was still regular price. This does match up with other reports I've read about Target's clearancing stuff for the ROTF space. Good price on those Muggs. Someone from TFW2005, please mention this to Kusanagi, as I remember he was looking for a few Muggs.

Uh Dude, you read that wrong. By sad I meant that the whole deal with them banning you for, from what I can tell, stupid reasons.

The main reason I stick to this site is because I don't see mods pulling jackass moves like that, so good to see you back.

After hearing what happened to CJ7 over at TFW I'll start posting here again. Ah, the days when I first joined the forum...good times.

In sightings news nothing to note of at Everett Target and Toys R Us. Everett Target did stock up on MU figures, but nothing really special. I do like the darker spider-man and torch though...

Not a transformers sighting but I did notice the NBA all star vinyls are out. I may get into these...if anyone spots LeBron, could they give me a heads up? I have Kobe and KG...now I need to get Bron to complete the set.

Should be out hunting tomorrow.

I too fell victim to the nazism-ish ways over at tfw2005. They banned my ip for questioning a mod.

I'm from ohio but it feel its relevant. About 6-8 months ago the tfw ppl had created a spot on their forum i believe called the toyark where users were to post any toy sightings unrelated to tf'ers. The sightings forums in some states were being filled up with more then tf'er sightings. We had a user in ohio that was constantly posting tons of pictures of power ranger stuff. I asked him nicely to stop and to put the pictures in the toyark were they were supposed to go. Of course all hell broke loose cause i'm the new guy and he's a vet. So i took it up with the mods. They actually told him to stop in a public post. So of course all the past members there got all pist off and raised a fuss about me and that there were never any problems before i came. I made a post back that stated my case that they shouldn't have created the toyark if they're not gonna enforce it. I got banned for trolling they said. I emailed many times trying to explain myself but never got a response. Botcon was in cincy last year wish it was there this year cause i'd approach the mother f**ckers on some grown man ****.

peace

Editor - Your original post just sounded wierd, it seemed to me that you were bothered about the recent activity in the WA area. But, if you were really more bothered by the TFW2005 stuff, then that's cool.

amjskateshop - I've come to the conclusion that TFW2005 hates people from Ohio; as that's where I used to live.

The truth is, I don't see as much negative stuff from the Mods here. ACSS is actually in WA and he's pretty cool.

No worries CJ7. I see how my post could have been read the way you read it.

I am bothered a bit if Kicks isn't doing well, because the few times I went there it seemed like a decent store, but beyond that my only complain about Washington is that I can't go down and check up on stuff more often these days. The few times recently I've gone to Bellingham, has been when almost nothing is on the shelves. But at least I can see friends at the same time.

and get Jack in the Box. love that stuff.

Well, you can even ask the guys over at TFW2005, I've always been of the mindset that people in Canada that are having trouble catching up with some TFs should definately network the guys in the States. Is there anything you're looking for in particular? I'm in the WA northend, so meeting someone halfway to help them get stuff they may be having trouble finding is not too bad of a drive for me.

So, yea, if you need help; just shout out. And get a list together. I can either find exactly what you're looking for or I can at least point you to the better stores in WA; so you're not wasting a trip.

Thanks CJ7.

Luckily after winning animated Sunstorm on eBay last week, I'm pretty good for now. And from my last trip to TRU it sounds like we'll be getting movie stuff at the same time.

But I do appreciate the offer of keeping a eye open for me.

As much as I doubt there is going to be anything up here, that you (or anybody in Washington) would be worried about seeing Hasbro Canada isn't in the business of doing anything special up here nowdays. (Even our Joe stuff, that in the 80's would ship with Canadian flag stickers and such are exactly the same as you are getting at retail.) let me know and I'll make sure I post it for you guys.

Editor - Cool. Well the offer stays open to those that need help at any point. Do you happen to have any good shops for Beast Wars or G2 stuff up there? I'm always on the lookout for good MOC/MISB stuff from those two eras. And I'm always fine with foreign/tri-logo/whatever style packaging.

Not right now.

There was a good deal of beast wars stuff around about a year and a half ago floating around but it's dried up.

As for G2, that is an area that in these parts I haven't seen much of in years.

That said, I should be going on a run around to a few smaller places tucked into the local asian malls in the next couple weeks, and sometimes a few interesting bits pop up. I doubt i'll see G2 but there could be some Beasties in there.
