Newbie (1/14)



  1. Target on College Avenue and 94 freeway had the following: Stealth Lockdown only 1. Voyager Prime w/ logo on shoulder 1. Voyager Blitzwing 1 I took it. Deluxe Sentinel Prime 1 I took it. Voyager Grimlock 1. Movie Armorhide. Premium Megs and 1 Prime. No Animated Ultra Magnus.
  2. Where is your area? I live in San Diego near the Mexican border. Figures here tend to trickle in very slowly or non-existent. When we do get new figures, it's always in small amount like one or two figures.
  3. You guys are getting the new figures so fast. I haven't seen any Shockwave or Skywarp from my area. Not even leader Magnus.
  4. Went to TRU on 30th Street National City and found the following: Animated Grimlock only 1 left. Animated Blitzwing only 1. Animated Lugnut a lot. Animated voyager & leader class Bulkhead a lot. Animated Prime supreme only 2 left but I saw some more on the top shelf. Universe mini Prime: again TRU couldn't scan the darn thing and this guy had to ask for help. It turns out he had to type in a code into his cash register and I was able to buy him this time around. Universe mini Animated Prowl and Bumblebee. NO ULTRA MAGNUS LEADER CLASS.
  5. hey nice threads :)

  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. Nope. I just don't really search all that hard anymore. Nothing really worth reporting on out here in east county though anyways..., unless you count that everywhere seems to have the 25th Prime...? So you're in San Diego? Most of the stores in my area doesn't have 25th Prime. It was a week ago that TRU started having him. For some reason, we get new figures last.
  11. I guess I am the only one in San Diego besides Combust. TRU National City 30th St.: More Activators this time around Grimlock, Megatron, Thundercracker & Bandit Lockdown (these are new). 1 Swoop. Star Wars TF AT-AT I took the last one. Replicas Prime & Bumblebee. Movie Blackout/Scorponok 2-pack. Animated leaders bulkhead & meggy. Universe 25th Prime.
  12. The Wal-Mart in National City by Highland St. had 7 Animated Swoops. 6 of those 7 were hidden on the top of the aisle. They didn't have leader Magnus and voyager Grimlock. They had a lot of Lugnutz though. The TRU in National City had nothing new. Just a lot of voyager Bulkhead, leader Prime, leader Megatron, etc. They did have more of those Universe Prime. I think they had 5 or 6 of them.
  13. You mean the Wal-Mart on Highland St. National City? The Wal-Mart that I know of was once Fedco long time ago.
  14. Anyone living in San Diego seen any Animated Swoop around San Diego/Chula Vista/National City areas? For some reason, they're non-existent in National City/Lemon Grove areas.
  15. I went to TRU in National City this morning and they had the following: Universe: Optimus Prime only 2 and I bought 1 Silverstreak Ironhide only 1 left Animated Activator: these are the 1st time I've seen these figures in this store Grimlock Megatron I bought Prime and the 2 activators above. :thumb :win :tfevil
