  1. Yes, actually! I spotted Wheeljack and Warpath at the Target in Largo on Ulmerton and Missouri just last week. There may have been a Thundercracker left, too.
  2. Ooh, I'll have to check the TJ Maxx here to see if they have any! I would pay $19 for him. Not any more than that though. :P
  3. Picked up Terradive FINALLY the other day. Been looking for this guy for a LONG time. He is amazing. Believe all the hype about him. Some unique points that earn him extra cred in my book: 1. Trident weapon - how many TFs have ever had this weapon? Off the top of my head, I'm guessing one of the Seacons and RiD Bruticus kinda-sorta had a 3-pronged flail. 2. Two-handed weilding - another new trend that is amazing, given how many TFs are given weapons that obviously require two hands to operate. 3. Nosecone transformation - the way his chest folds around is fun and creative. Amazing how many jet-formers are out there and yet they still find new ways to TF them. 4. Solid paint apps - the use of silver and gold on his face and select parts really makes this figure pop. All the right areas are highlighted, showing off the great sculpt work. 5. Opening forearms - yay, no fold-out hands! I hate the gaps caused by fold-out hands. The rotating piece in the forearm completely alleviates this and makes an immense aesthetic improvement on the figure. 6. Low-kibble design - everything tucks away nicely on this guy. No giant backpack syndrome or anything. It all integrates and accentuates the bot mode. Easily the best TF of the year, IMO. 10/10 :thumb
  4. Amazing! You not only got him to stand up, you even got him to look forward instead of down! Great shot!
  5. It's not a bad deal to have some options when displaying MP Screamer, that's for sure. Still, it seems like an answer to a question nobody asked. Was anyone really clamoring for side panels that make the figure un-transformable or a mini Shockwave?
  6. I finally had some cash left over and got to pick up a new TF. I went with Straxus, and as much as I was looking forward to him, having him in-hand is even better than I expected! Awesome character choice by Hasbro to give fanboys something to squeal about and newer TF fans a nod towards a piece of TF lore they've probably never experienced. I hadn't planned on getting Skullgrin, but after seeing pics and knowing how awesome this mold is, I may just break down and double up here before getting some of the other G1-inspired goodness currently gracing shelves! My only complaint about this toy is the sometimes awkward angles on the hook-system weapons. Not being part of the main toy, though, I can't deduct any points for that. 10/10 :love
  7. This is probably hoping for too much... does the Japan store there carry Hasbro or Takara versions?
  8. Clearwater - Gulf-to-Bay Super Target: Sidearm Sideswipe Jetblade Tuner Skids(? - the green one) Generations Red Alert Generations Dirge
  9. Tangent on this: favorite aquatic themed TF for me is definitely Energon Mirage. Pure awesome in style, design, and TF scheme.
  10. Protoforms spotted at Target in Strongsville and Parma. Still no Alt Ravage or Rumble, but thanks to death333 I have a pair on their way to me. :clap
  11. The Target 4-pack is $9.99. I might actually pick those up; haven't decided yet, but they're nice and cheap desk decorations for the office. ;-) Coincidentally, they have a rack just like in that pic at the Parma Target. Found Constructicon Devastator @ Brooklyn Wal-Mart 2 nights ago. The other 3 sets seem to have disappeared since. Alt Rollbar and Ricochet are down to $10 each at that store as well. No sign of Rumble or Ravage. :-(
  12. Crap in a hat! Has ANYONE spotted Soundwave @ TRU yet?? :tfhuh
  13. Picked up the Magnus vs Skywarp set @ Target in Parma... still no luck finding Cliffjumper. Oh yeah - spotted Titanium Soundwave and Rodimus at Wal-Mart in Strongsville. (Not a fan of the Titaniums.)
  14. Just got back from Target in Northfield, and... SCOOOORREEE!!!! Ramjet. Mine. No one else's. :tfgrin
  15. Target in Strongsville has a few Classics Mirages, Titanium Thundercrackers, and Titanium Scourges. It's also where I snagged Grimlock a few weeks ago (missing a forearm, though :tfsad ) but haven't seen one since. Wal-Mart in Strongville has the newest wave of mini Titaniums: Galvatron, Rodimus, Thundecracker, et al... at least, I think that's the newest wave. I don't collect them so I don't keep up on them!
  16. Classics Jetfire spotted and purchased at Wal-Mart in Strongsville. No sign of Mirage or Grimlock yet...
  17. Probably old news, but there's plenty of 10th Anniversary Primal vs. Megs sets at the Parmatown TRU. They've got Cyb Primal and Megatron as well (the monkey/T-rex ones that came out as Target exclusives in BW deco first.)
  18. Classics are just about everywhere around Cleveland now... found 'em all except Rodimus. Is he shortpacked or something?? There were at least 20 of each wave 1 deluxe except him at the Parmatown TRU. ~:-(
  19. Displaced sighting due to vacation: Classics Bumblebee and Astrotrain @ Wal-Mart in Charlottle, NC. Local sighting: TFTM Prime, Classics Megatron, and Classics Prime @ Wal-Mart in Strongsville. (They looked meh, so I passed.)
  20. Cleveland area is starting to pick up again... more Targets have the latest deluxe assortment w/ Unicron, Prime, etc. Unicron is cool, but mine also suffers from weak-hip syndrome. (Easy fix.) Target in Bedford Hts. just put out a fresh case of Alternators, 1 assortment old: Meister, Tracks, Prime, and Mirage. They already had a Prime left from the last case, so there's actually a pair sitting there! (I may pick one up today to try bashing into N. Prime instead of opening the one I got on eBay though. :thumb )
  21. Found all 3 new Alts @ Wal-Mart in Strongsville and snatched 'em up! A mini-review of each: Prime: Doesn't TF back into truck mode well at ALL. Overall it was a valiant attempt that maintaining the price point just neutered into mediocrity. Minor note: The gun is shown mis-TFed on the package. Mirage: Sweet design all around; tricky TF scheme to figure out. Some minor QC quirks like overspray and such, but nothing drastic like the "2 left hands" gripes I've seen posted on here. Camshaft: Meh. The plastic isn't as dull and "primer-like" as the pics make it seem, but it's still marbled like crazy and runs too thin in spot so you see bonding points through the doors and such. Minor note: His mirrors are upside-down on the package photo.
  22. Spotted 6" Titanium WW Prime and GI Joe Megs, as well as 3" Titanium WW Prime, BW Megs, and G1 Uni @ Target in Bedford Hts. If I hadn't just been scalped for Nemesis Prime on eBay, I'd have 6" Prime. He's hella sweet.
  23. 10th Anniversary BW Primal is at Target North Olmsted... he's a pretty nice deluxe, and on its own design merits, is a pretty cool-looking bot. I'm still personally turned off by Hasbro modifying the design for no apparent reason. I also checked North Olmsted Wal-Mart - nothing to report there.
  24. Aw, guys! I'm disappointed! There's no WAY I should be posting the newest sightings twice in a row. Anyway, without further ado... PRIMUS is at Parmatown Toys R Us, which means he's probably at the other local TRUs too... only 1 of him left; he looks pretty sweet! I'll wait for the inevitable pre-or-post-Christmas clearance though.
  25. I have the WORST kind of sightings possible! Parmatown Target: Fishbowl pack Meister and Tracks, meaning that Mirage and Prime were there and someone got to them first!! Strongsville Target: Demolishor and bendy Prime repaints, meaning Unicron was there and someone found him first too! God hates me, I know this now. PS: Oh yeah, Millenium Falcon SWTF @ Strongsville Wal-Mart too.
