There has been MP Starscreams at all of the Wal-Marts around the Fox Valley area. It's a good feeling knowing that I'm done with the hunt for awhile.

For those not in the DTF, there is a TF Collector meet up on Jan 12th in Milwaukee. It's at the McDonalds on Greenfield Ave., near the Fairgrounds. All TF Fans are welcome to join in on the fun.

For those of you near I43 get on it and head to the Walmart in Delevan. I found MP SS for $30, there were at least 10 of them.
I also saw the Star Wars Darth Vader/Death Star for $30.
Their real gear 2 packs were $7 as well. They seemed to be swamped with Leader Megs and had a few Brawls.
TF are slim picking right now and I'm glad I waited to get a MP
SS. :grin:

Shopko in Racine had Allspark Jumper, Mine and the other one
for $9.99. Unfortunately that is the sale price there,
but hey, they were the only ones in the city to have any of the Allspark figures. Oh damn, the sale was only good through the 2nd.
oh well they still had about 5 or more of each.
I got the last Legends Megatron. :grin:

You on DTF VonSchlitzy?

Waspinator is pretty easy to find, especially in Madison and Milwaukee.

Wreck-gar is the hard one to find at the moment though. I got lucky and a friend picked me one up though.

Keep watching, there's sure to be more Wreck-gars sitting on shelves to replace all the Lugnuts and Primes.

You're missing out my friend!

The DTF is short for The Dairyland Transformers Fans.

We are a group that works together and chats about toys, sightings, and deals, right here in Wisconsin. Most of us live in the Madison/Milwaukee area, so if that's where you hunt, you definitely want to join. We even have our own convention in Fond du Lac every year called Dairycon!

Which, I should mention, is next month on April 25th. It is a little late for registration, but if you are interested in attending, you can come as a guest. Let me know if you're interested!

If anyone is still looking for an Animated Skywarp or Shockwave, the west side Appleton Wal Mart has a few.

I guess that there isn't very many of us in the state, but here goes. The TRU in Appleton has all of the exclusives in stock. There were four each of the Insecticons and Perceptor, as well as loads of the 3 pack (Megs, Fallen, and Soundwave) and also about ten of the Mixmaster/Hoist 2 pack.

I don't know how often this forum gets checked, but take a look at your local Wal Marts for an incredible price on their Masterpiece Skywarps.
