If anyone finds anything wave 2 near the Oswego-land area, give me a shout please ;;)

I think wave 2 has filtered into all the surrounding states in the midwest, but us?

Movie Studio series is here at meijer in Oswego; bought starscream, left optimus. So if you have one near you, they should have some small qualities, if they're not on the shelf, go bug a manager, they should help.

Quick stop at TRU on Butterfield just now. Signs say "up to 30% off", but TFs seem to be 10%- I checked the one Primus and TR Rodimus Unicronus (I keep wanting to call him Unichronicus, what's up with that?), both were 10% off.

Nothing else noteworthy as far as stock. I wonder if they'll up the discounts daily or perhaps during the day?

Studio series Deluxes, Voyagers, and Leaders Friday evening at the Target on Army Trail Rd., Bloomingdale I think.

One of each Leader; I took the only Voy Starscream; 2 each of Ratchet and Bumblebee, one Stinger. $50, 30, and 20, respectively. But Target's RedCard means 5% off, that's $2.50 off Leaders.

Yorktown Target has some of the Bumblebee movie figs- the small Legends-types and the next size up, I think. I haven't learned the new sizes classes yet, they seem confusing this time around.

EDIT- I forgot that they had 2 of those POTP Soundwave exclusive re-molds too.

Also had a couple POTP Infernos.

The Wal-Mart on Lake Street in Addison has all of it's price tags up for the G1 reissues, but they are not out yet. I could not talk one of the employees to check the back and see if Devastator was in yet. I'm guessing they will be put out this week.

Scored at the Rolling Meadows Wal-Mart on Golf Rd. 8 or so Devastators and a dozen Starscreams including a couple in top stock. No Hot Rods or minibots. I bought 1 Devastator and left the rest. Also some Bumblebee and Power of the Primes figures there too

Rosemont Target has 1 SS DOTM Ratchet, 2 SS VW Bees, and 1 or 2 SS Shadow Raiders, right now. (Haven't decided if I'm buying one of those or not.)

Edit- Groceries came in under budget, so I bought that Shadow Raider. 1 left
