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 :-(

Newberrytown Walmart had 3 Movie Trilogy Primes. They also had Transformers Prime Optimus and Megatron (1 each). They had a couple Prime Cyberverse figures as well.
If anyone has a TFSS Breakdown they don't want, PM me please. I would love to take him off your hands.

WalMart in both Mukwonago and Burlington have restocked on FoC and Prime Figs. For Prime they of course had Bumblebee, but also Knock Out, Hot Shot, Wheeljack, Arcee, Ratchet and the Voyager Prime, Megatron, Starscream and Bulkhead. My son and I picked up FoC Jazz. Damn fine toy. Was his turn to pick and I was leaning toward FoC Shockwave..... Oh well...OMW back in a few minutes anyway for a few household items, Shockwave is going to find his way in :)

ALl settled here in Elkhorn, WI. Passing on a very surprising sighting: the Asian exclusive Generations deluxes were found at the New Berlin/Moorland Road TRU! Hasbro's distribution network effed up again. I was able to pick up Springer, WHeelie, and CLiffjumper. I believe they had some more left. Good hunting!

Hey guys,
I wanted to spread the word regarding an event a friend of mine is putting together.

Event: The Inaugural Wi. Mini-Con!
Date: December 1st
Time: TBD (Roughly Noon-5pm?)
Location: Beaver Dam, Wi

His description of the event, from their Facebook page:
These Mini conventions ("Mini-Cons") will hopefully be starting in Late Nov/Early December of this year.
My vision for the Mini-Cons is a chance for all us mid-western Transformers lovers to get together have, have a good time, do some basic small dealer/swap meet stuff, and then to add to the Con style Each event will host a few fun activities, ranging from Script Readings, Customs classes, Transformers Trivia, and some other stuff based on the season.
I'm hoping that each event will give every collector who attends a chance to get involved in their own little Mini-Convention.


For more information, please check out the Facebook page for the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/357401061018492/

Hope to see you there! ;)
