If any Wisconsinites are having problems finding RTS wave 1, check your local Kohls stores. The north Appleton location has a full sized endcap of them on sale for $9.99

Good Luck!

If anyone here is looking for a DotM Shockwave, check your local Shopko stores. The one I just stopped at had six, yes six, Shockwaves. Granted they're $29.99 a pop but when you figure in gas prices for running around town to town looking for him its kind of worth the higher price.

*EDIT*
Does anyone even check these posts or should I just give up?

I'll post this here if anyone's interested in attending....

Excelsior Moo Believers!

Be you Wisconsinite, Minnesotan, or otherwise; I'd like to extend Fred's invitation to you to join him at this year's Dairycon Summer Get-Together!

We had so much fun holding *3* of them last year that we've decided to do another one! This year we'll be meeting at the Brookfield, Wi Old Country Buffet on Saturday, July 9th!

Come join your fellow Transfans, partake of some wonderful grub (Dutch treat!), bring your items to trade/sell, and get a chance at some *great* door prizes! We'll be doing the hate plague version of the Dairycon exclusive "Actionmaster Ravage" as a raffle prize for attending!
Also, attendance at the Summer Get-Together nets you a Moo Point, redeemable at the 2012 Dairycon as a raffle entry towards the next Reinforcements From Dairycon figure!

So, clear your calendar and join us!

Rochester WI, here.... Old school fan reborn thanks to my 5 yr old, he currently has about 150 bots from all across the timelines. His Birthday is next weekend, and he really, and I mean really wants the Toys R Us Masterpiece Rodimus. Any one see any in stock in the Milwaukee/Racine/Brookfield area?

Thanks ;)

Gave up on the Masterpiece Rodimus for now..... Instead the lil dude was very excited to get Blurr and Red Alert (Toys R Us, Racine), as he has not seen these in any of his many trips to Target and Wal*Mart stores with his Mother, also we got him the Revenge of the Fallen two pack of Whirl and Bludgeon marked down to 19.99 from 39.99.

His Birthday Party is tomorrow, and my brother in law has great luck finding oddball rarities so I will post back if such a gift is received.

I am new around here...is this thread even active? Is there another thread around here more active for us SE WI - NE IL Transformers peeps?

Well, the Illinois Sightings thread here is pretty active. Most of the Milwaukee and Madison Cheeseheads are at TFW. The rest of us are pretty spread out throughout the state.

I don't have a TRU in a 2 hour radius from me, to put in perspective. :-(

Thanks for the reply ;)

We found a Masterpiece Rodimus at the TRU in Racine today! We were really stoked. This is a great toy for sure. I cannot believe the engineering that went into this.

One left.

That's a little better....but where is this Kmart? They're kind of an elusive store in Wisconsin nowadays. ;)

We have an overload of HA Leadfoots in both of the Targets in the Appleton area. Also, any one looking for the DotM Ark playset with the bonus Sentinal Commander figure are in these stores as well.

I'm still on the hunt for Guzzle though...

The Appleton TRU has the first wave of Prime RID, minus Soundwave as he was nowhere to be seen. They also had a few of the Cyberverse Legions but I passed on those.

No sign of the Voygers yet :-(
