    Sandwraith, I probably don't plan on buying every single item. I realize how expensive the third party customs can be, but I also plan on haggling the dealers which is easier to do at the conventions.

    You'd vomit at some of the deals my friends and I have pulled off with dealers during con season :) .

    Like if I can get the convoy attachment for Prime which runs a little cheaper on TFsource.com, I'd consider it a pretty successful weekend. Now if I get a dealer that has it, I will find a way to haggle for it at as well :) .

    In a cruel twist of fate, I now have no problem finding Jazz but can't find a single Kup.

    I want to find him before the movie toys takeover.

    Wish I could afford a lot of the third party items. Theres a lot of good stuff out there. The Rumble and Frenzy set look awesome. Really wish I could get the Igear Prime and Fansproject Arcee or Springer (Warbot)



    I have the opposite problem. I've seen plenty Kup but not a sign of Jazz...or Tracks. I guess its either going on line or doing some driving for me.

    Darn distribution problems.

    I was eventually able to find Jazz and picked him up at TRU. Since then I've not seen Jazz anywhere but find plenty of G2 Laser Optimus Prime. Can't find any Generations Wheeljack though which I really want because I'm a big fan of Wheeljack. And we haven't gotten a decent deluxe Wheeljack figure in like forever.

    Mind = blown

    Some pictures came out of upcoming toys. I had no idea the Stunticons(or whatever those Nascars are called) were Autobots.

    Which toys/Stunticons are you talking about? Do you mean the exclusive TFAnimated Stunticons or do you mean something for the movie?

    The original G1 Stunticons were Decepticons but like anything else in the movie its fair game to Bay to do whatever he wants with some characters. If they made them Decepticons I'm not surprised.

    Still can't find the Gneerations stuff I want. Got to find Windcharger.

    I assumed those Nascar TF's were the Stunticons



    Oh, and I'm gonna be smart this year and hold off on buying Sentinel Prime b/c I just know a repaint will come out that I like better than the original...as usual :argh:

    Still looking for Leader Class Shockwave (Wave 2)

    Saw a lot of Deluxe classes and Cyberverse figures at Wal*Mart, Target and TRU.

    Purchased Sentinel Prime from Target. He's awesome and will be the main reason I go see Transformers 3. I wish I could get excited about the other movie toys but they do nothing for me.

    It was a kick to the nards to see nothing but movie toys in the Transformers section without a hint of Windcharger, Wheeljack or Kup. I fear I have to order them online while movie Bumblebee clogs the shelves for the time being.:whatever::csad:

    I picked up Shockwave for my son at WalMart last night. He looks so much better in person, imo. Certainly worth 18 bucks.

    Can't blame you. Distribution was so crap I missed 2 or 3 waves. Didn't even SEE em on the shelves.

    I did recently find Wheeljack though and he is pure win.

    Out of the movie stuff I want Sentinel Prime.

    I've only spotted Wheeljack once at convention and way overpriced. Hopefully I will find him somewhere else at some point. But I really want a new Wheeljack figure.

    Oh well. BotCon is this Saturday :D .

    You should be spotting him at retail soon...unless the scalpers are moving through your area like a virus.

    He's a great figure. Doesn't even make me think of Tracks when I look at him. A+ for Hasbro on this one.
