Acquisitions thread

If its about Transformers, the toys, it's fair game.

Okay, this is unbelievable.

I'm on vacation in Tennessee right now and today we were out running some errands. During this time, we stopped in a Rite-Aid pharmacy store and I strolled over to the toys section just to see what they had. To my utter shock, they had the Universe 2008 figures of Prowl, Sunstreaker, and two Galvatrons! :shock:

I picked up one Galvy and the other two bots, but this is a find I was not expecting to find.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

I snagged a DOTM Bumblebee Mech Tech leader Class today. Boy it was expensive (699 Norwegian Crowns, which I think is around 70 or so USD), but worth it.

Not really a toy... I snagged (my new favorite word!) War For Cybertron (PC version) for a little over $8 on Amazon. I got free shipping too, since my order was at least $25.

For anyone interested I think it's still on sale, just the PC version though.

That is a great find!

When I was younger I took a trip down to Tijuana, Mexico and found a bunch of 80's toys in two shops. I couldn't afford all of 'em, but I did come home with a Slimer from "The Real Ghostbusters" toy line.

Not sure on how it is here in Norway. I did guess on what the price in Norwegian Crowns were in USD, so I may have been some off there. Anyway, scifi stash here in Norway are almost nonexistent (unless it's Star Wars), and I only knew of two shops here that had Transformers, and the price for Bee was the same at both.

Yeah, I think it's a good find considering how difficult it is to find the figures in your region. Congrats!
