Some of the Alternators are on clearance at Target. I picked up a Ricochet for $4.84...

It's about time they clearanced those things out.  I was getting sick and tired of seeing Ricochet & Rollbar everywhere.  He's based of a good mold, but on a poor character IMO.  Smokescreen is still amongst my favorites - he was the first ALT to be released.

Rebrolables has a lot of nice sticker upgrades for ALTS/Binaltech + replacement stickers for vintage stuff.

This may be the only movie-based toy I pick up.



Can't wait to see what he looks like once he's painted.  At least it's a face character you can look at and know who he is.

I was thinking the same thing, only I'd pick up a Jazz as well.

Optimash Prime...


Not quite sure what to think of it, but I'm sure I'll pick it up.

Transformer role play toys called Real Gear...


They're also coming out with TF Plushies that can "transform" when you turn them inside out.  Interesting concept there.

I was just thinking about buying an iPod yesterday, too. Unfortunately, BBTS is pre-sold out already.

I just ordered the MP Megatron after seeing the picture.  I still haven't purchased the MP-04 Prime but I'll have to soon.  I ordered it from Canada where they aren't going to put the orange tip on the gun.  Hopefully, it makes it across the border.

Canukia?  I order my re-issue Megatron when it came out a few years ago from Maybang.com and had no problems getting him in straight factory condition unlike other stories I heard.  Silly name, yes I know.  It even says in their description for MP05 that he'd ship in the way it was manufactured.  They're based in SoCal and specialize in imports.  I've ordered from them a few times over the past few years and their service was great.  Not trying to promote them, but just throwing out an option.

I'm still on the fence about MP05 after I received my MP04 Prime in non working condition.  I have a 20th sitting on my dresser that I picked up on clearance with working legs unlike mine  >:(  Note: I don't consider the two to be the same toy.

Soundwave MP3 Player back up for preorder at BBTS.

I went ahead and preordered one. It's cheaper than an iPod, but you have to buy a mini SD card to have any music on it.  :P I likely won't use it in its MP3 player capacity anyway.

If they actually come in, in July all I have to say is...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!


Other Note:

I ordered the Chrome long stacks from AgesthreeandUp.com and it has been over 2 weeks and still no stacks. I e-mailed them and they assured me that the product was shipped, but there is NO at my office that would have reason to hide/steal these from me.

don't mind me I am just venting about them.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!
