Checked the TЯU near Parker on Central in Dallas as well as the neighboring Target. Neigher has any Cybertron out. Th TЯU had more Alt 2-packs of Smokes and Swipe. Some loose Windchargers too. Oh, and it mysteriously went fomr about 16 of re-issue Riccochet to 3, so maybe they are marked down from $36 finally. I don't know. I don't want him and didn't want to trot across the store to the only working scanner to find out. There were a few Energon stragglers left.


The Target there, only had an Alpha Q, no Alts at all, and one of each: Kickback, Blight, and Stormcloud. 3 of 4 D combiners. Oh, the TЯU had Barricade, and possibly blackout left over so you might score a complete set.


Anyone in the DFW area that spots a 20th Prime in the clearance bin I'll rrepay you if you snag him for me.


You might want to go back to that TR us I took the remaining Cybertron Optimus Prime yesterday afternoon. They had  2 Hot Shots and I think not sure 1 Dirt boss

2 Jetfires and 2 Thundercracker's and 1 Vector Prime.  :thumb



LOL, figures.


I saw that they had the energons down to piddly-nothing and it looked like they had them arranged so as to move them out of the way quickly. I was there Thursday, seems tehy released them Friday.




S'okay. I'm not really hyped for Cybertron yet. Only plan on picking up hte odd on e here and there. Concentrating on Alts right now- can't wait for Sunstreaker.

College Station TRU *had* all of Wave 1 Cybertron yesterday until I picked up the only Optimus Prime and Megatron. I got all of wave 1 minus the Supreme Starscream...my wallet couldn't take anymore punishment. The Cybertron toys ROCK! Cybertron Prime is one of the best Prime toys ever!

Re-checked the TЯU at Central and Parker... well maybe they did get all of Wave 1 Friday, after I visisted Thursday.


...however by this evening all that was left was one Crumplezone.


and 3 more Riccochets still marked $35. Idiots. Just mark it down.

Walmarts in the surrounding NW area of h-town seem to be having an influx of Cybertron starting w/the basic asst 2 & deluxes. the one of 1960/Eldridge has 2 starscreams, 2 crumple zones & vector prime, basics & delux, the one off 290 has 2 starscreams, basics & deluxe.

I am amazed that G1 Skids is still $25 at TRU! Will they ever mark him down as well???

WalMart on Central and Spring Creek:


at least three each of Cybertron-


Optimus Prime, Megatron, Thundercracker, Hot Shot, Vector Prime, Crumplezone, and Starscream.


They are spread across several aisles, though, and seemingly placed in wherever there was a gap in the aisle.


I grabbed a Hot Shot and Thundercracker.

Found Alt Swerve today, Target across from Brodie Oaks TRU. I bought the only one. They did have 2 Grimlocks...no sign of Decepticharge. No new Alts at the TRU or Target & Wal-mart 290/Mopac.


If anyone in Austin wants to trade a MISB Swerve for both MISB Hound and MISB Silverstreak (packaging does not have to be in perfect condition, as long as toys are intact), LMK.

    • Crankcase is hilarious. It's so awful and awesome at the same time. The entire front of the vehicle comes off, turns sideways, has a little piece flip around and becomes a gun. Ever since we first seen pictures of him I was wondering what they were doing with the front of his vehicle/chest. I never would've expected that though. It sure is a different design choice that's for sure. I can't wait for the upgrade kit to give him his shoulder cannons. I wonder how those will be implemented. I hope at least better than SS86 Jazz's shoulder cannon. Dead End is what it is still. Nothing to really talk about. I still don't like how Hasbro makes the lower legs longer than the upper legs for Transformers constantly though. Many of their designs would work better with longer upper legs like Dead End. Pointblank looks good. I understand the hate some have but I don't have that same hate. I just hate the Targetmaster still. We just had better ones that they're still using. Did it really cost that much to add one in at this point? Sure it's double the parts count and isn't gangmolded but still, it's not like Pointblank himself is all that complicated to begin with and the Battlemasters have long since made their money back with using those molds. They could've moved him into a wave with reissues or slight retools to eat some of the cost for that wave too instead of having it a wave with major retools and new molds entirely. Again, I can't wait to see the upgrade kit to give him that engine block spoiler gun thing to finish off the center rear of the vehicle mode. Hopefully they'll remember to put a 5mm port in the middle of it for a Targetmaster. Yeah Peacemaker already fills that spot but we all know that someone is going to make that piece to fit there. Skullgrin looks good but I don't like it as Skullgrin. I still think the original Generations Skullgrin is better overall. I do like all the weapons on this new one though. I'm just a little confused about what the vehicle mode is really supposed to be. It has treads in the back but nothing in the front. Is it a tank? Is it a half-track? Is it a hover tank? What is it? That head is awesome though and beats the older head by quite a bit. Transmetal II Megatron. Transmetal II Megatron. Wow. I just hope that the dragon neck/upper chest area is mistransformed. Or that something can be done. That was very much a bad choice if that's indeed all it can be. I can't wait to have to tighten up all those ball joints to get everything just like I want. Cryotek is the obvious redeco but I want one more other than him. I seen a digibash of him as RiD 2001 Megatron/Gigatron and while it looks good, I don't want that. I'd much rather have this redone as Beast Wars II Galvatron. It's not like the drill tank was all that much better than TMII Megatron's dragster so it's easy to leave out. Once you take out the drill tank, the dragons don't look too dissimilar to each other at that point. Yeah Galvatron didn't have a dragon arm but I'll take what I can get when it comes to a new toy for him.
