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?

    • In a week with family sickness courtesy of the big C, and tech issues, in light of a missed countdown question, I offer a personal list this week with the Transformers most special to me and why. Back to our usual voting this Wednesday! https://youtu.be/H9STcW8b0pM
    • I'd rather this be video game tie in toys and not more Netflix show tie ins. But ultimately I'd rather see figures made from the Predacons Rising movie than anything else. I'd also like some from Beast Wars II: Lio Convoy's Close Call! as well. The Beast Wars II movie would be how we get Burning Convoy and Flash Lio Convoy decos lol. But most importantly, it will give us Galvatron Tripledacus and Magnaboss!!! Preacons Rising will give us Predaking, Skylynx and Darksteel. Maybe even Prime Megatron and Starscream that aren't G1ified like Knockout, Arcee and Bulkhead.
    • Looks fine to me. It wouldn't be the first Laserbeak figure made from a pink colored Bumblebee that we got. And since he wasn't the same size as Bumblebee while looking like him, core class makes sense instead of a deluxe. The box art matches up with the scene it happened in too. Granted that the other core class SS figures don't have THAT large a background as the character art is featured more prominently. Maybe it's the art that will indeed be on the box but photo shopped and sized incorrectly. Assuming that the figure is actually coming out that is. So if this is true then it's another core class meant to scale with the larger figures like Spike and Ravage do. Obviously the Bumblebee made from this will scale with the other core class figures like Shockwave and Ratchet. I think it's kind of brilliant. One mold can be two characters for two different scales.
    • Just in from the Transformers Coleccion de Juguetes en Puerto Rico Facebook group is another curiosity with what looks like official images of a Studio Series Core Class Dark Of The Moon Laserbeak? The previously leaked Laserbeak listing let us know one is coming, but clearly that is a possible Pink Bumblebee with a very questionable box graphic. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
    • Thanks to 暗之帝王 on Weibo who has shared in-hand images of the NewAge H43V Umibozu figure from their Legendary Heroes. Check out the unofficial legends class Beast Wars Depthcharge figure in and out of the packaging. They did a great job realizing this character in a 4.7 inch tall figure. Check out the in-hand images of NewAge H43V Umibozu that is schedueld to ship in August 2022. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
