Hey what's goin on, man. Yea, I check TFW every now and then - are the mods there still toolbags?

Oh, so as I used to say back in the day - if anyone is looking for anything, shout it out and I'll keep an eye out. I still know some of the secret handshakes, hidden stashes, and general goodies of the northend. 8)

Any of you guys in the south sound? Theres a guy selling TF stuff on craigslist in Lynnwood. He seems nice, wonder if its any of you? lol

I switched from NECA, Gears of War, etc. stuff and started collecting TFs a few months ago so Im trying to complete the PRiD line before Xmas for my daughter and me to share. :) So if you still see some of the harder to find ones please PM me and maybe we can meet? I still need Wheeljack, Arcee, Knock Out, Vehicon, Dead End, Kup and Rumble. May have to resort to ebay for Dreadwing if I cant pay a guy on here fast enough :( Then Ultra Magnus, Thundertron and Skyquake if I ever find them at retail.

Guy here told me he spotted some PRiD at Walgreens. So I went there and found Airachnid the other day and was stoked. My daughter loves Blackarachnia and purple so I know just what to do with Airachnid.
Wanted: Jack, Miko and Raf from FE Pack, AM Breakdown, any good Blackarachnia, any affordable MPs especially Grimlock (I can dream)
Selling/ Trading: My Gears of War collection, including NECA figures, lancer replica, signed comics, etc.

Ah perithimus, just found out after some digging. Youre the craigslist guy I was referring to lol.

Wow, have to admit, after looking through the "other site" I realize theres a very healthy WA population versus here. Im going to have to sign up, get to know some of you guys and get in on the helping each other out action. ;)

Yea, you will go through some rookie hazing, but we have a solid group over there that is pretty active most of the time. Introduce yourself over there, there are a lot of us on the South End who hunt pretty regularly, and try to have meetups about 4 times per year.

Yea, there's a good crew over there. Just don't forget to offer up some sightings reports there before just walking in and asking. You gotta give alittle to get alittle.

Lynnwood TRU: GDO Deluxes all of them x2 or 3 each, including Wheelie and Swerve who I think are hard-to-find. ML Big Time Spidey. Loads of The Hobbit figures - at least 15 each of the 4" figures and one set of the 6" figures. No MPOP.


Considering Bridge Direct isn't going to release wave two of The Hobbit action figures till next year (rumor has it Spring), I think I'm mostly going to just stick with Legos, Weta, and Noble Collection Hobbit stuff. Unless HT gets the license...

Most of you guys seem to be north of me. Im down in Olympia. Seems like scalper territory down here. Maybe Im just being pessimistic because Im missing the last of the Prime line I wanted to get for my daughters Xmas. :(

I read backpages on the TFW sightings thread for about an hour or so just to start recognizing names, locations, etc.

Where do you guys usually meet, what do yall do, etc.?

Olympia TRU: 4 MP OP cases came in on Monday. Probably gone already. :/

Most meetups have been in the Seatac area, with the last one (that I didn't attend) in the Covington area. It is kind of a middle ground. Sometimes people bring their extra stuff to sell, we exchange loot we have for other people, and just BS (not just about Transformers). Just gives us a chance to geek out every few months. Washington probably has the best TF base of people in the collecting community (I think our thread is the most posted in on TFW).

There is one person in the Oly area who posts every now and then, and some of us venture down there if there is something that we really want, but the furthest south a decent amount of us are is the Puyallup/Tacoma/Lakewood area.

What Prime figures are you still looking for? Kmart is a good place for the last wave, though they are overpriced.

I know Id have to work and prove myself to the other members but its still nice to see how you guys will grab something for someone and hold it until they can meet up and pay. I dont have any friends down here that collect TFs. A good friend works at the huge comic shop here but they dont really stock TFs and the prices she has to charge are terrible. :/

I just had to drive to Isaaquah to exchange my 360 at Costco. What a crappy drive that was lol. But Im still curious about the whole thing. Seems fun.

The Big K-Mart here closed down a year or 2 ago. I found a few figures I needed at a Walgreens. I never did find Dreadwing and Im hoping to find Ultra Magnus and Thundertron soon. She loves Ultra Magnus. Deluxes I still need Wheeljack, Arcee, Knock Out, Dead End, Kup and Rumble. My OCD wants them without the DVD because the rest I found dont have it. But I started buying them for her a bit late for that now lol.

Hmm... maybe I should stop posting finds. I think it's quite dead here considering the competition from the other site...


Lynnwood TRU: Nothing of note.

Everett TRU: GDO Megs x4, Hotspot x1, Powerdive x1. Packaging condition is alittle rough, but that's because they survived Black Friday. Props to those brave bots getting man-handled by all those soccer-moms.

I'll just throw it out there - if anyone spots the Lego Hobbit Mirkwood Elf or Gandalf polybags, I could use a heads-up. I've only managed five Mirkwood Elves so far...

^Hey Cyberjet -- it's been a while. I know Bellevue has a bunch of Gandalf polybags on the floor. They also have a case of elves in the back if you can get them to pull it out. I tried to get some on Sunday, but they couldn't find any on the floor and the case in the back was being held for a promo soon.

Hey, BB.206. Yeah, I keep reading elsewhere that some TRUs are holding the Mirkwood Elf for a promo, but nobody seems to know when. I hit Lynnwood about two weeks ago and they said that one guy bought the whole of 50 and that Bellevue had some and Everett was out. I then hit Bellevue and got five total.

I might do another run this weekend and see what's up. I'm pretty much caught up on sets, so it's just these bags and then the '13 Star Wars sets and eventually CMF S9.

The promo is supposed to be the week of the 16th and I'm guessing it's like the zombie polybag. Probably spend $35 and get the polybag free. Hopefully you have luck this weekend at Bellevue. I'll try as well. How many are you trying to get?

I'm hyped for series 9, but even more excited for series 10. I need a bunch of the Roman Commander from series 10. I'll probably just get a bunch of knights from series 9 to hold me over. haha

Yeah, TRU is just goofy with those polybags. I found three of the MF one on the pegs that I bought without needing the promo. So, it's like sometimes they stick to the promo rules and sometimes they just throw them on the pegs. Seems to be the same for the Mirkwood Elf.

I hear that about S9 and S10, both look really good. Especially after how weak S8 was. I'm also glad the new case break-down has six of certain army builder types, so it might make that easier.

Lynnwood Toys R Us had Mirkwood elves this morning, but a lady cleared them out. She also got a bunch of the LOTR project cases. Hopefully she was a SEALUG member -- I wouldn't mind losing out to one since they are collectors. I know they were trying to do a group buy.

I am, but not really an active member. I've met some people from there. Most of them are pretty cool. They usually have their meetings in the south end and east side. I haven't been to one yet.

The more I think about it -- the lady that cleaned out the elves must have been a SEALUG member. There is no real reason to buy 6+ LOTR project cases. I know one of the members is moving from Harry Potter builds to LOTR/Hobbit builds. So, that might be her.
