Yeah, SD native, East County resident.

 

I've been seeing 25th Prime in WalMarts and TRUs for almost a month now....

 

Cool so now there are 3 members from San Diego area, me, ReverenNash and combust. I am 5 minutes from National City and Chula Vista.

 

I went to Target today in Lemon Grove and they had 25th Prime finally. There were new Universe figures 2-pack that everybody's been seeing like Ratbat, Roadbuster, Springer, etc. I also bought Movie basic Arcee (blue color) & there's a basic size semi-truck figure I can't remember his name. I left him in my car.

make that 4 members. I am in Santee

TB-1599: Cool. What stores are around where you live? Are you near Grossmont College? There's a TRU near there that I use to go to. That TRU tend to get new figures first before everybody else. That was like 10 years ago.

 

Hunter Rose: I went to school up there back in 1998. I never knew you were in LA. I guess I didn't look at your profile. What stores are around your area?

I live near downtown/Little Tokyo - where the 101/110/5/10 all meet and I work in Pasadena.

 

I go to Target most commonly. But there are at least 3 TRUs reasonably close and 3 walmarts not too far away (under 15 miles away).

 

I guess there are also a few KBs and the usual smattering of Comic & collectible stores.

 

 

At one time there was a small group of So.Cal TFans who met up once in a while - but it's been a while....

Anyone want to try to organize again?

I went to school in Whittier and had an apt. in Fullerton. I also went to Pasadena to do a school project. I don't remember Little Tokyo. Probably went there but its been too long. With all those stores, you're bound to find new figures before anyone else right? I like KB and those comic/collectible stores. I went to a collectible store near my house and they had a sealed diaclone Slag. That was a long time ago.

 

I would like to meet you guys. Me and combust lives near National City, TB-1599 in Santee and Hunter Rose in LA. I don't know how you feel about us living so close together and you so far.

LOL - no. I've noticed that if I'm dilligent on the hunt I can find figures about 2 weeks after the first sightings (usually back east). But The Walmarts around here have a pretty good stocking habits. The Targets aren't bad either, though usually another 2 weeks after Walmarts. And TRUs are just amateurish no matter where you go.

Where is National City?

We should start up a thread over in the Conventions Forum

Lately the TRU near my house seems to get newer figures than Target and Wal-Mart. The Target in Lemon Grove and Wal-Mart in National City tend to get newer figures last.

 

National City is part of San Diego County. I am 5 minutes from National City and 10 minutes from Chula Vista (which is to the south of me).

 

Here is a link of a map: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:San_Die...Highlighted.svg

 

Is that http://forums.TFormers.com/talk/index.php?showforum=37 the correct place to post a face to face meeting?
