On a routine shopping trip to the local Costco, my wife came across a pallet of new Transformers. After she told me what it was I had her grab the exclusive two pack quick.

Thanks to her I now have the Transformers Universe Cybertron Optimus Prime and Crumplezone two pack for only $34.99 USD.

Fugie Wudgie? Is that health food? Don't get chocolate on your new figures, bro.

To be honest with you guys, I'm not sure what that is. I assume its some form of chocolate, but I haven't seen it. :lol:

You mean to tell me the wife bought them and didn't share??? Shame on her! :lol: :lol:

On the other hand, Halloween WAS last week...maybe they were for trick-or-treaters....

I've seen 25th Anniversary Prime twice yesterday at the Rolling Meadows and Carpentersville Wal-Marts. Also both stores, along with the Elk Grove store, seem to be overloaded with Movie deluxes even with the markdown to $7.77.

Just rub it in why don't you?

It's getting to be the holiday season with Thanksgiving less than three weeks away and Christmas only about 4 weeks after that. Anyone else thinking a Seibertron Christmas party might not be a bad idea?

I will! :P lol jk but yeah I picked him up and he's a pretty cool figure I can't fiddle around with him too much tonight cause I have school tomorrow, but for the hour or two I've had him I think he's better than leader megs. Other then the two I have I might still get Blurr, Jazz, Blitzwing, and maybe voyager prime.

I would have no problem with that.

I don't have a problem either. Need to look into a couple of sports bar/restaurants around here to see where we could meet up.

Thanks to Tim Formas over at TFW, I found Activators Grimlock, Megatron and Bandit Lockdown at the Walmart on Meacham in Elk Grove Village. There was still 1 Grimlock and 1 Megatron left on the pegs when I left around 1:30. Working on the galleries for the latest Activators right now.

The TRU in Schaumburg had a bunch of figures. Newest things I saw there was Storm Cloud (which is the first time I've seen him in stores) and the Grimlock and Prowl Titaniums.

The Target on Touhy in Niles had a couple of Tread Bolts in stock yesterday.

Picked up the two latest Star Wars TFs on sale for $13.49 at the Target at Higgins and Meacham in Schaumburg.

Still haven't seen Storm Cloud out here in Rockford. As a matter of fact, haven't seen Animated Ultra Magnus yet either. Kinda depressing if not for having already ordered UM from BBTS....and being broke...being in school sucks.

my target gets Storm cloud in quite a bit. Just see if they have more ultras in the back. Btw I saw Blitzwing at wally the other day and I'm wondering what everyone thinks of him?

I liked him...not so much the tank mode, but overall pretty decent. I find the rotating head feature to be a little hard to use. 7 out of 10.

Yeah, I was a little disappointed in Blitzwing as well. Something just isn't right about him.

I meant to mention that I saw another "returned" Transformers yesterday at the Target in Schaumburg on Higgins and Meacham. This time it was the basic Obsidian mold inside of the Marvel TF Iron Man packaging. This kid is making me sick that he keeps returning figures in packaging. What makes me even more sick is that the people at the stores aren't noticing this scheme. Some of the returns are pretty obvious while others haven't if you are unfamiliar with the product.
