Renton Walmart had more today,only I must have just missed Recon Barricade, DOH!!!

I was able to snag the last Dropkick this morning and there was quite a few Dreadwings, but looks like once again it was ransacked. I went at 8:15am. I guess you gotta get up pretty darn early... Someone must be jacking all the BB '08's and Arcees or something. I just hope they are for collectors and not scalpers.

I was at the Lynnwood Wal-Mart around midnight last night and they didnt have any of Dropkick or Recon Barricade out. All they had were the 4 I mentioned last night. I also hope that BB and Arcee are being grabbed by fans and not scalpers... It is getting annoying not being able to find these 2....

I went to the Lynnwood Target and TRU today, both were pretty picked clean. I got the last Movie Clocker exclusive and I also got Strongarm...but they had plenty left of him. No Air Raid or Elita-1. At TRU I got Titanium 6" Soundwave.

Also don't know if you guys care but at Lynwood Khols they have on sale a Movie style Autobot faction symbol in G1 colors $10.

I am pretty much up to date with my Alternators (only missing Camshaft and Swerve :MAD: ) but it is nice to see Alternators back on the scene again.

TRU in Southcenter had wave 2 Classics this morning: Mirage, Rodimus, Grimlock, Cliffjumper and Ramjet. Picked up all 5 singles with a few left over. Only had one Grimlock though so must have been one case. Also got in two more Primus'.

I was able to get a Bumblebee at the Marysville WalMart on Thursday. Last one, not a good paint job, but at least I got him. There was no sign of Arcee, but I already passed her up twice. Once at Toys R Us in Lynnwood and once at the Everett WalMart. If I find her again I might pick her up.

All I'm looking for now is a barricade and leader megatron.

Just got back from some rounds.

Everett:

Toys R Us: nothing really.

Target:

Movie Deluxes:
Dreadwing: 2
Final Battle Jazz: 1
Recon Barricade: 1
Dropkick: 1
Payload: 1
Longarm: 1

There was one bumblebee, but some kid got it while I was leaving.

2 Ultimate Bumblebees

2 Leader Brawls -- I almost picked one up, but I passed, don't really know why, but I did. It looks pretty cool.

Lynnwood:

Toys R Us:
Voyager Prime (2) and Megatron (The rest, I think four?)

Diecast Soundwave

Target: one Ultimate Bumblebee

WalMart: Still has the voyagers (Ratchet, Megatron, Starscrea, Ironhide). Two movie deluxes left: Dreadwing and Dropkick. I was thinking about picking up Dropkick since it was 8.97...but I passed.

Well I went to the Everett Wal-Mart and Target for the first time. The WM was pretty much cleane dout...though they had a interesting SWTF 2pack that had Vaders Tie Advanced and a Blue Obi Wan EPIII Jedi Star Fighter... I have never seen or ehard of the 2 pack before.

Everett Target had 6 G1 Jazz figures and a Recone Barricade which I picked up. No Leader Brawl's :MAD: .

Lynnwood TRU had nothing.

Lynnwood Target was pretty much picked clean. All they had was a Long Arm, Dreadwing and a Dropkick. I grabbed the Dropkick figure.

Lynwood WM had nothing.

I passed on the Ultmate Bumblebee's for now. Next paycheck it will be mine.

The hunt for 09BB and Arcee continues....

Well, instead of going to Everett Target I went to Lynnwood since it was closer to other places I needed to go. I got lucky and there were 6 G1 Jazz on the shelves. I picked one up. I also asked them to check if they had any G1 Starscreams in the back with the DCPI number. They had two boxes in the back, the guy brought one out. He thought I was looking for Bumblebee and said "Just Starscream" I picked one up. I believe they were putting the other (3) on the shelf.

Anyone make runs today? I'm starting to slow down on my rounds since I only want a Leader Megatron and Deluxe Barricade.

After I picked up my Bumblebee last Thursday I haven't been as motivated to run around stores anymore.

I'm thinking about stopping my Everett WalMart and maybe Target.

Well I was going to make a run today but I went to Gamestop to get my Biochock game. And then they had Wii's for sale...I caved in and got a Wii and a whole bunch of accesories...so I cant do any run's for awhile. Only figure I will get now if I happen to be at a place would be BB and Arcee thats it.


...maybe G1 Starscream :P

Unfortunately I have to part with my Leader Brawl. If anyone wants him PM me, I'm just asking for the price I paid, $45. If not keep an eye out for him at Target. I'll probably return him this weekend.

Dropped by Marysville Kohls and WalMart today.

They have three Arcees left (I picked one up). A bunch of Swindles, dreadwings, and wreckages. The person told me they had some Bumblebees earlier today, but they are gone now. No luck for Barricade.


I'm crossing my fingers on finding something tomorrow morning at Kohls for the Earlybird special.

I forgot to add, if someone wants the 20th Anniv. Prime they have them at the Everett WalMart for $50. I picked one up. I might get another if it goes lower in price.

Well, there will be a G1 Repaint Jazz at Target returns in Puyallup around noon. Bought an extra one for my cousin down in Vancouver, but I guess he doesn't want it. If anyone needs one and is in the Puyallup area, PM me before then, I am willing to meet up in the local area, but I doubt there is anyone near who needs one, $11 (I would make a big 15 cents on the deal).

Unless someone has a concept BB that they want to be reasonable with. I will trade and give some extra cash for it. I doubt anyone does, but it is worth a try.
