Wish I lived closer and could make it for the 6 AM Sunday Spin Class. Is it called that because heads will still be spinning drunk from earlier that morning?

I am definitely making all the VIPs attend the real spin class. If we are too drunk to wake up, well that's another story.

When I reveal the exclusive figure, do you think we can put a post on seibertron or is that an abuse of power?

I moved and merged the topic with the Illinois Sightings topic in the "Toy Sightings and Local Meetups" forum. Feel free to share the exclusive here on the forums! Can't wait to hear about all of the fun and debauchery that was had at PFcon!

Man I have been hunting all over for these guys and still nothing! Thanks for letting us know, nilocomic! :D

Was just at Golf Mill TRU in Niles around noon today. They had Nintendo Switch in stock if you are looking for one of those consoles. For Transformers, they had 2x Infernocus, 2x Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime, 1 of the Reveal Your Shield Optimus Primes, 2x Chaos on Velocitron sets, 2x Leader Class TLK Optimus Prime figures, and I think that's it for newer figures.

I bought the Power of the Primes deluxe class figures at the Arlington Heights Target on Wednesday. They also had 1 Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Twinferno figure available that I left there.

This morning, I bought the last Titans Return 2-pack with Wingspan and Cloudraker at the Mount Prospect Walgreens on Elmhurst near Golf.

Happy hunting! Lots of new toys just beyond the horizon.
