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 :-(

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! ;)

Damn I need to venture out this weekend. Been wanting Smokescreen and Shockwave. My local WalMarts (Burlington and Mukwanago) have way too many FoC primes and Ultra Magnuses after I cleaned out their remaining FoC Grimlock and Blasters. Also been looking for the new Springer and Blitzwing, Toys R Us on 27th in Milwaukee is supposed to have a few in stock as of today I heard.

Has anyone here seen Kup, Wheelie, Bee, or Jazz from the generations classics? I'm located in Madison and have only seen the generations figures from the Cybertron games. I'm looking for more of the classics to go alongside my Red Alert.

Only places you might find those at still would be TJ Max or Gordman's. They've been out for a while, so most of the big stores don't have them anymore.

Thank you for the insight. I realize that they are older figures, but i have seem some generations and older Prime figures at various Walgreens stores. Are there any other nearby collectors? So far it would seem like I'm the only one in Madison.

Quite a few actually reside in Madison actually. We have several Faecbook groups if you have a Facebook that you may be interested in.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =1&theater

We try to have quarterly meet ups and the last two were in Beaver Dam.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/517559068301953/

Here we organize group buys on 3rd Party TF's which go great with Classics.

We also have the Yahoo Group and Email list, which isn't as active, http://dairylandtransfans.com/

Most importantly, the TFW Wisconsin Sightings is the most active spot, so while I fully endorse using Seibertron for the majority of your TF needs, I also advise creating an account there, if not solely for using that thread.
