I have one coming from BBTS. I think it is definetly going to be worth it. I know a lot of people are a little so so on its paint scheme, but I think it looks a little more realistic in its current state. It is going to look great next to MP Starscream.

^Thanks for the answer. When you get him, could you let me know what his pros and cons are?

Thanks again.

I definetly can do that.

I was able to get my package today, so now I have the 2 excluisve protoforms from the Japanese C3 Hobby Convention. I havent been able to open them yet.

I went to Everett Target and asked for the Starscreams...he said they might have some in the back but couldnt them..I was pressed for time so I could ask him to please get them. They did have 6" Titanium WWI Starscream, WWI Ultra Magnus and HAD WWI Sunstorm...but I snagged him.

I also hit the Northgate Target (1st time) and they had the usual stuff (T.E.C.H Cyber Slammers and the rest of the merchandise) bhut nothing really else. They did have some of the Robot Replica's though.

So the hunt for G1 Starscream continues.... I want a few more days to find him...but after that...maybe a week I might ask one of you if willing to pick me up one.

This thread isnt just for posting your sightings, it's a regional thread where we can all get together and talk about Transformers and what not. It is also pretty cool to see us helping each other out with the figures we can't find.

Tomarrow I am getting a set of the Fusion Cluster Protoform Exclusives from one of the Hobby Conventions in Japan. I will snap some pics and post them.


I have to agree. I have been looking to make friends with others who are into transformers as well.

Just a wild thought but it could be fun if we could pull it off. For the release of the Movie I hosted a pre-movie party (complete with a TF themed cake courtesy of my Ex-wife, and TF prize raffle with a double sided Marquee Poster as the grand prize). Afterwards, myself and a dozen friends attended the last showing on July 3rd. I would not proprose something so grandiose for the IMAX release on the 25th, but maybe some of us converging on a Dennys or Shari's a few hours beforehand to get acquainted and then storming the IMAX in full TF attire might be kind of fun. Work schedules may be a tricky thing to deal with but I'm sure we could figure something out.

Like I said, just a wild thought...

I was actually going to suggest this, hence why I introduced myself on the last page (try and break the ice). I would totally be down for a Seibertron WA get together for the Imax release. I have like 3 different Seibertron.com shirts... A Armada Starscream button up shirt. I wouldnt mind representing :P

I was looking today on the pacific Science Centers Imax website and they have nothing down for transformers.... Are there any other Imax's here in the Seattle area??

To the best of my knowledge, the next closest IMAX location is in Portland, Ore. I'll try to make connections with my friends up North to see if they have anything in Bellingham or just over the border, but I don't remember hearing of anything up there. I do know that Canada has what is supposed to be a freaking enormous theatre just over the border, (which is where one of my friends wanted my movie party held) but I don't think it's an IMAX set-up.

I recieved confirmation that the freaking enormous theater, which is actually named Collosus, IS set up for IMAX and it is rumored that it will be showing TF. Unfortunately, it is up in Canada and is not exactly a leisurely jaunt for many of us NW Seibertronians. While I may be able to haul 5 people in my car, my transmission would be stressed getting just my scrawny butt up there unless I can get the car into the shop before then. Hopefully, the Science Center is just slow in posting upcoming listings and it will show up here soon.

Thanks Perithimus. I'd say we're good to go on the first part (the location). Seeing it at Colossus intrigued me, but not quite enough to drain my wallet or stress my engine getting there.

I'm sure that it will be showing for more than just a few days. Rather than setting opening day as the rock solid day we attend, how do folks feel about shooting for the optimal date for the highest Seibertronian attendance? I know that I am still not 100% certain of my schedule that day since I will be putting my business aside and working for another company starting Tuesday. I won't have full schedule details till later this next week.
Ideally, I would have held my movie party on July 2nd, but I had to adjust for my friends work schedules. I was just happy to get together with as many of them as I could.

I just got back from both Everett and Lynnwood Toys R Us. Go there now if you are looking for movie deluxes. They had at least four pegs filled with them.

The following is what I saw:

Lynnwood:
Final Battle Jazz at least 7
Arcee: 1 left
Longarm: 4 at least
Dreadwing: 5
Payload: 6 or 7
Bumblebee: 0 but I did see some people leave with him.

Everett:
Final Battle Jazz: 8
Arcee: 2
Longarm: 5
Payload: 4
Dreadwing: 4
Bumblebee: 0, same as above saw some people leave with them.

On another note, I did find a Bumblebee at Kohls and picked him up for someone. Let me know if you need him. He was 12.99.

Oh yeah, both places had a good amount of voyagers: Starscream, Optimus, & Megatron.

Anyone finding Thundercracker or Rescue Ratchet? They are about the only two that I still want (been holding off on FB Jazz and Recon Barracade), and holding off on Megatron until I sell my extra Leader Prime and in hopes that they come out with a better paint job. Oh yea, anyone seen the oldschool Bumblebee lately. I would probably impulse buy that one too.

Thanks to the tip I now have a Arcee! They still have 2 left at the Everett TRU. And a bunch of the other deluxes BB.206 mentioned.

I also went to Everett Target and Wal-Mart...nothing there.

I think I will ask for your guys help on finding me a G1 Starscream...I seem to always be off or something. I am worried since it is a exclusive it will disappear before I can find him and I will have to resport to $$$ off of Ebay. Thanks to anyone who can help me. I think Barrelass was going to search one for me as well.

Thanks to the tip I also have Arcee and there is now only 1 left at the Everett TRU. 1 Voyager Prime, 6 Final Battle Jazz, 3 Longarms and 4 Ultimate BB remain plus a bunch of other easier to find Deluxe and Voyagers. I also still have an unopened Dropkick but will probably return it in the morning to offset the Arcee purchase. TRU is open till 9:00 and I am less than 10 mins. away so if anybody needs me to snag something fast, call or text 425-314-7547. (Ultimate BB excluded.)

Well thanks to BB.206 I now have a Bumblebee Concept among my ranks. And when I went to meet him we found a G1 Starscream.... so this is great news. I am pretty much caught up except the 2 new Voyager releases.

This is working out well guys, thanks for anyone who was willing to help me search for Starscream BTW.
