  1. I luvs my Yamatos. I only have 2 1/48 Valks, the Roy S and Hikaru A... I'm hoping that once I get some money going this year I'll get the Max/Milia/Hikaru J-models and maybe the Low Viz II A-type with some GBP armor.

     

    Of course there's also the YF-19 w/Fold Booster, the SV-51, the Shin VF-0A w/Ghost Booster....

     

     

    I need more money. And shelf space.

  2. DeKalb is so far from me and gas is so expensive and I have no clue what "Super Wally's" is... :(

     

    Super Wal-Mart

     

    What, you've never heard Wal-Mart called Wally World?

  3. Well. I'm house-sitting for my bro in Sycamore right now, and the DeKalb Target and Wally have zip. There's an arch up at Wally but only protoforms. I'll be here on June 2nd, so I may as well hang out at Wally and see what I can get when the clock strikes midnight.... I'm holding out on Bee and barricade til the 2-pack arrives. I can only burn about $40 right now so I have to choose my targets carefully....

  4. Target on Addison in Chicago has movie deluxes out today. I got Bonecrusher and my GF bought Jazz for me; they also had Swindle, Barricade, Brawl, and one '74 Bumblebee (though he has the mold variation that's caused some breakage).

  5. I just picked up Bumblebee and Starscream at the Ottawa, IL Wallycron. They had all the deluxes for this first wave, and there were some unopened cases for Voyagers.

     

    Da Proof:

    I haven't opened them yet, but I can say this: I'm a little disappointed in Bumblebee already. I picked out the best of the 5 they had as far as paint quality, and it's still pretty crappy. The stripes are uneven and different sizes, the yellow paint seems pretty flaky and he basically looks like he was colored by a five-year-old. I may have to polish off the existing paint and do some custom work. I don't feel like I should have to, but if that's what it takes, so be it. Also the Rodimus examples they had all seemed to have some rough edges where parts had been taken off the sprue and the exhaust pipes didn't seem to line up right on any of the four I saw. Maybe that's fixable, I don't know. But so far I've seen enough to have serious misgivings about the QC on these guys.

  6. Classics Are Out!

     

    I just picked up Bumblebee and Starscream at the Ottawa, IL Wal-Mart! They had all the Wave 1 Deluxes, and I saw some unopened cases for the Voyagers! Get up and get after 'em!!

  7. Well so far I haven't seen jack along the I-80 corridor; I made a run all the way around Orland Park, Joliet, on to Fox Valley and through Sandwich before coming back homeward. Nothing except a couple of the 6" Titanium Prime and Megatrons, but after seeing them in the package (and their horrible paintwork and shoddy QC, as almost every review has confirmed) I decided not to buy them. Aside from that zilch, zip, zero, nada. W. T. F. is going on in Illinois?

  8. Well I took my car for a shakedown with the new timing belt and found a few interesting things.  A couple of Primus figs at Joliet Toys "B" We, and at the Fox Valley store they had a couple of the 3" Titanium figures (2 BW Megatrons and 1 WWI Prime), none of which I bought...

  9. There's a boat-load of SWTF Falcons at the Ottawa IL Wal-Mart too.  I'm actually tempted, despite my hatred of the SWTFs, to get this one simply because I love the Falcon so much...

  10. Hey WV, I've been using your steel wool method to strip some paint from some of my Alts for modification, along with some ultra-fine wet-sanding paper.  But now I have a question:  What do you use to polish these guys up and bring the shine back out?  Is there anything specific that won't harm plastic?

  11. Nothing yet in North Central.  But I did see a crap-load of G1 Sideswipes today at Kay-Bee in Louis Joliet Mall.  Seriously, there were, like 20 of the things.  It was insane.  Right now I seek Alt Sunstreaker.  Not getting Skids because I have his BT and I find the plain blue with the red stripe stickers far superior.

  12. Damn!  I was in Aurora today.  Found a couple new Cybertron Scouts, picked up Breakdown and 2 Armorhides at Toys "B" We on that buy 2, get the 3rd free special (gonna paint one orange to make Huffer).  No luck with DCharge or Prowl tho.  I wants them sooooo bad....

  13. Kay-Bee "Outlet Stores" are usually dumping grounds for stuff they haven't been able to sell in the main stores, due to overpricing or overstock or both.  Rarely will you find new stuff there, and I've NEVER seen any Alt besides Smokes and Sideswipe at any Kay-Bee.

  14. Yesterday I picked up Alt Wheeljack and Shockwave at Target in Fox Valley.  I got the only ones they had (sorry fellas) but if they're this far already there's got to be more somewhere in Illinois!

  15. Just completed my Superion thanks to the Princeton, IL Super Wal-Mart. Still a few Windrazors and Terradives left plus Stormcloud and Kickback.
