Four Movieverse novels arrived in the mail:
  • Transformers: Ghosts of Yesterday
  • Transformers
  • Transformers: The Veiled Threat
  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
With having gotten the DOTM novel previously, I now own all five movie novels (well, okay, there is the Classified novel trilogy I still have yet to get).

I was looking for some other books too, like some art ones and such, that will be close to my birthday (February) so I'll be keeping an eye out for it then.

Anyway, just found the new Generations deluxe/scout sized Optimus + Roller, Megatron + Chopshop, and the Bumblebee one, Megatron looks coolest out of these, but Optimus is a very close second.

I also got a few more Bot Shots, I'm still scared of Kreo blind packs so I stick with Bot Shots instead :p

Woke up early this morning and, since I didn't have to be at work this morning, I drove all the way across town to the nearest TRU, arriving just six minutes after it opened.

Headed straight for the TF aisle and...


There it was. Sitting by its lonesome in a section all to itself was a single Masterpiece MP-02 Soundwave, surrounded on all sides (via other shelves and pegs) by older, unsold TF product, the newest of which being Prime BH Wave 1 toys and Generations FOC Legends Wave 1 toys (everything else was PRID, older Generations, or Darn of the Moon stuff).

I couldn't believe they actually had the thing. After weeks of phone calls telling me they had none, it was right there, wrapped in a security lock.

However, there as something wrong with it. The box had a gigantic gashing dent running around three sides of its exterior, which had me worried that it might be one of two things: Either A) damaged from the shipment, or B) a returned used item. Worrying me further was the sound of something loose rattling inside of it.

After purchasing it with two $50 gift cards, I opened the box to examine the figure and its accessories before leaving the store. Thankfully, everything seemed to be in order. The loose item turned out to be the instructions. The box seemed to be the only thing that was in bad shape, but knowing that the stuff inside was okay was a relief, especially considering how this was the only Soundwave they had.

No sign of Acid Storm, though.

I grabbed Darksteel and Skylynx from my local Target.

Funny thing is I was at Walmart just before and say Grimstone.

On a side not my Target both priced lower than the the other Beast Hunters Deluxe and Voyagers.

There are places that Power Core Combiners are still shelfwarming?! :shock:

Then again, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised since DOTM just won't go away. :roll:

I just got myself a Steve. It was the car-version and deluxe class. As it was the only Steve there then I found it, I have yet to have an army of them. :)
