Not a sighting but I wanted to share my excitement and blow the dust off of our sighting spot. The excitement is that I went to a local Value Village today for a specific power cable, found the cable for 2 bucks and Leader Class Movie Prime for 4 bucks. Only lacking a gun.
All the rest of it was in one piece and all the bells, lights and irritating sounds work like brand new. It was just lying on the floor, unlabeled, so I asked an employee about it and she returned with a sticker 2 minutes later.
Broke as I am I would have been a damn fool to just leave it where some kid could pick it up and do whatever. I felt it my duty to bring Prime to a good home. :grin:

Kinda makes my last few purchases seem pale. I picked up Legends Warpath and Wheelie and a pair of Transformers finger boards at the Everett Wal-Mart this last week. The finger boards had the pics of Dreamwave versions Optimus and Megatron on top of their respective faction symbols with the white background.

And as far as Wheelie goes, I needed him for artistic reasons. I plan to do a highly stylized drawing of him. Something less "tease worthy", think Wheelie on steroids. Something worthy of a Deluxe class figure.
Warpath, he's just plain cool. Especially in his bot mode. Big improvement over the original although he doesn't have that old school, sturdy feel to him.

I'm 2 for 2 on the Value Village runs. Dropped off stuff at the VV on Evergreen way tonight. Ran inside and scored Leader class Brawl minus his barrel for $4.99
Anybody know how to transform this damn thing? Prime was a cinch compared to this guy! :P

Never mind, I'll hand it off to my 9 year old tomorrow. His capacity for figuring Transformers out without the instructions is mind-blowing.

As I posted in the thread for the Target sale.

If anyone in Washington is near a Target selling the Sunstorm/Shockwave exclusives for $4.99, and will be attending Sakura-Con in Seattle next week-end, I'm looking to see if anyone can pick up a set for me. As I will be taking Grayhound from Vancouver to Seattle and Back I just won't be able to get to a Target.

Please PM me if you think you can help, and as I said in the other thread I'm willing to pay $20 for both of them, so you'll make ten bucks off of it.

And he returns!

Ok, ok, settle down. I know I've been gone a long time and you all miss me. It's cool.


No, really, it got alittle dead here so I started posting over at TFW2005.com, sometime in the middle of last year. Long story short, after a pretty decent run there, I got banned for questioning a Mod on a bad call he made. I never got an explanation other than "Banned for questioning a moderator/administrator".

So, I guess I'll just post my TF sightings stuff here. Here's what's happened lately:

I'm sure you guys know most area Targets are pretty bare right now, nothing in TFA or TFU. Lots of Muggs found at most Targets, though. Some are running clearances of 15% off on older TF stuff.

Lynnwood TRU: The usual pegwarmers. There are two sets of the current TFU exclusives - Countdown and the other guy.

Area Fred Meyers stores are sometimes breaking street dates on the ROTF stuff. I've actually found four sets of the ROTF Leader figures at the Redmond Fred Meyers (don't bother going, they were all gone last week when I tipped off another TF collector).

That's all I got for now. I'm probably not doing too much of the ROTF stuff, but will post when I find anything useful.

^Cybs, you need to figure out how to get unbanned or change your name to "The Lone Wolf" over here. I think our posting of sightings in here have prettymuch dried up. Sucks that you got banned.

On a sighting note, not a damn thing new in Puyallup today at Target or Walmart.

Man Cyberjet it sucks to not see you on tfw anymore. Either way you are an asset to any board you go to. I appreciate everything you do.

I second that...man, talk about a bunch of freaking nazi's. They sent me a cease and desist order via PM when I posted a thread about your banishment. Anyways, looks like I'll be posting here more often.

Dudes, thank you for the kind words.

Furious, I'm sorry you got a "cease" thing just for talking about me. Man, I most be some kinda badass - look out, that Cyberjet guy is crazy! We can't even talk about him.

Basically, one TFW2005 Mod had slammed a TFW2005 Photo Staff guy. Then when I politely question the Mod that did the slamming, because I thought the Photo Staff guy had a good point, I get banned. It just goes to show how tightly wound up those guys are. First it was a week suspension and then I found out my IP address was banned. I sent them a couple messages asking what happened, with my email addy and everything and no one ever replied.

I've said things 10x worse and never got a slap on the hand so I was trippin' when Jimmy told me the story. The mods there seriously got a stick up their *ss..oh well. not like you can't create a bogus account and start posting again.

Anyways, on a sighting note...not much out in the stores, absolutely nothing really worth mentioning in the south end. Target is finally getting the lastest wave of TFA animated (Waspinator/Samurai Prowl). I did happen to see jimmy and bombatron's ROTF loot yesterday. Those guys will have nothing to buy come May 30th... :grin:

oh yeah..I've been so bored with TF lately that I started collecting Marvel Universe figures. Anyone here got an extra grey hulk or bullseye?

Yea, I was lucky in spotting those ROTF Leaders for Jimmy. Then he told me how he got two sets and then some other board members got the rest before the store closed. And I told Jimmy about them sometime around like 6:00pm that evening - they moved real fast.

As for MU, I've been hunting those for awhile. I haven't seen a Bullseye since I last got mine. I do know that Redmond Comic Stop had a Grey Hulk for $11.99. That was a couple weeks back, so you might want to call and confirm.

Well, we still have tomorrow for sightings - supposedly the ROFT preview figures will drop on Friday. It'll be fun to see how many stores goof and put out other ROTF figures at that time. You know stock people can't read street dates...

so who's going where tomorrow? I'll be up in Seattle again for a job interview at 1...I'm gonna stop by Palace Gifts and grab me a henkei Jetfire then maybe hit up Kicks to talk with Jose. Man, that place isn't looking too good. I hope they don't go out of business...

If Jose tried as hard as the previous owner, he might be doing better. All he ever seems to stock is the larger items like MP. I know recently he got some newer Henkei and Encore, but he's alittle late there. The previous owner had all kinds of Japanese TFs - there was a whole wall devoted to TFs, now it's just a small corner.

I won't be out hunting tomorrow till later in the afternoon.

I have tried with no luck to find a movie leader prime and voyager starscream at fred meyers. I am afraid I will have to wait until street date though.

Anybody hit up Redmond Freddies after the Leaders got cleared out? It would be interesting to see if the store manager was like, "Man we got go stock some more ROTF stuff, all these $40 figures went in like two hours."

Otherwise Kirkland, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Bothell, and Monroe Freddies don't have anything out of the ordinary. I hit them all in the last week and a half.

totally...I don't he's even really keeping stuff in stock. When I picked up my Masterpiece Grimlock from him. He didn't have any left. Plus Sui Wai was way more knowledge about toys and was way better about what he ordered. He always met all his preorders and had extra stock left over to last a few weeks. He's got himself quite a collection too. I bought a bunch of his vintage super robot stuff. That reminds me..I better call that guy. :D

I'm gonna start picking up my henkei stuff at Palace Gifts, the prices are pretty much the same but he's got everything in stock. I think the only ones he didn't have were Skywarp at the mini-bots. He also just got in the Alternity line...pretty sweet but just outta my price range right now.
