Also in case you missed it, here's some pics ofan upcoming real gear and some deluxes.
Longarm looks pretty decent, I'll probably get him. Can't really tell about Payload, and FB Jazz looks like a repaint so I'll most likely skip. '08 BB will be bought. Arcee looked pretty bad in earlier pictures and doesn't look much better here. Dreadwing can rot.
Just got back from my afternoon out..hit wm and target again, this time they had finally stocked the TF merchandise. I hauled in the following items:
Optimus Prime Robovision (target)-this was sort of my "escape clause" so i wouldnt drop the $45 on the movie leader prime figure. Haven't opened it yet, but I like the look of it alot
Robot Heroes Optimus prime/ravage
Robot Heroes bumblebee/soundwave
I didn't see any of the new titaniums at either place..hopefully those are on their way bc i really like the look of them.
went to wally world this morning and picked up Opti-Mash Prime potato head. was thinking of going to Target and getting the transformable plush optimus and bumblebee as well.
right on Tycho! i actually kinda liked the Cyber Stomper Prime and might get one if it ever goes on sale.

i also picked up a Brawl since it looks like it might fit in with the rest of my TF's. i actually stopped by my local Target twice today just to see if they might restock on TAC+Saga Legends and all the Robovision Primes were sold out as were the Deluxes and Voyagers.
I wanted to get the optimus/unicron robot heroes set but didnt see it. I will check again for it tomorrow while I am out.
Also, FB did your stores have the new movie titaniums? I want those but couldn't find them today.
I saw the Bumblebee Unleahsed today, thought it was cool. I might go and buy the Potoato Head Prime, it looks much better than Spudder-man
Heels, i didn't see any Optimus/Unicron or Thundercracker/Jazz. and apparently, i forgot to buy Mirage/Starscream.

also, i forgot to mention, at the $1 bins at Target, they have some TF movie stuff...magnets, pencils, stickers, tatoos, frisbees, drawstring sacks. i picked up some of the sacks and magnets.
Did anyone else notice kids going nuts to get this stuff? I hit up two Targets and a Toys R Us throughout the course of my Saturday (hoping I'd luck into a Megatron), and all three stores were mobbed with parents and kids buying up Transformers movie stuff. The second Target I hit was actually later in the day, around 2:30, and I kid you not, they had sold through every single Deluxe they had. Unbelievable. Hasbro must have marketed this June 2nd toy release thing perfectly through commercials, because everyone in those toy aisles (kids and parents alike) knew exactly what they were looking for, calling out characters by their specific names. And dang if the Bumblebee thing didn't stick...every gd kid wanted a Bumblebee. I heard Jazz's and Barricade's name a few times too.
TFs have always been a hit with the kids, but whenever there's a show, and in this case a big movie, to go along with the toys, it's just that much more exciting. (Worst mistake they ever made, was downplaying the cartoons and putting them on at weird times, etc.)

Just picked up Barricade at WM. I passed on him yesterday on my first trip, but after looking at him today I figured it was worth the purchase. Hopefully I do not change my mind once I open him.
