As far as Star Wars some store called Meijer has an Imperial Shuttle.  A dude from another site is hooking me up with one.  Target has some Creator and a Friends sets for Easter.

Some stuff can sell out quickly but other stuff will sit for awhile.  My rule of thumb with 3P stuff is if you like it enough (i usually wait for a review or 2) to lock in a preorder just in case b/c you'll only pay more for it later. 

Some of the more popular reviewers over there often get early samples to show off to the public.

Optibotimus, Peaugh, Vangelus.  Look these guys up on youtube.  People swear by them.  Very honest, detailed and hardcore fans.  Not afraid to tell you if something is terrible too.  I usually look up their reviews b4 making a final decision.  You can always cancel a preorder (depending on where you order from)

I only have x2 tape combiners.  I got in on the early price for Not Motormaster at BBTS so will have to track down his limbs at some point.  Also thinking about Green Giant (the smaller Devy) 

I've not seen one in person but most folks at that other site will entertain guest apperances of their toys if you ask nice enough and attend a meeting.  Always good to see that kinda stuff in person before shelling out too much money.

I don't like $300-$600 toys personally but they do look absolutely amazing.

Be careful transforming him.  Lots of folks don't like him because he's very complex and not easy to work with.  I've had no problems with mine.  Did you get the upgrade kit for MP05 ?  Kind of essential imo.  Gives him diecast leggings and all the extra pieces to make the rifle.

..and ya the 3rd party stuff.  Difficult not to drop hundreds or thousands a week like some can handle.

I started collecting LEGO right at the time the other set was being retired.  That being said if this is going to be $350 then I can probably keep living without one unless I find a good deal on it.

Just go under the sightings thread and look for MN.  They (we) have one of the largest groups just like (we) used to have here.  There's also some hidden threads when HTF stuff starts hitting.  Also two of the mods are locals and are very helpful.  Most of everyone there is good people and will hooks you up.

The 3 new 3rd party dinos are MP scale.

Year of the Horse Prime & Starscream..yes they just started hitting.  Shared exclusive with BBTS.

3 of the other 3rd party MP style dinobots are out or are coming soon.  TT is releasing a Masterpiece Ultra Magnus at some point if you don't like City Commander and will likely hit TRU in the future if you have patience.  There is a 3rd party MP Huffer.  Hasbro is releasing a leader G1 Jetfire and a IDW Leader tank megs later this year.  Hegemon?  I think is a good third party megs if you don't like the HUGE MP version or TT repaint of the nerf gun voyager.  I have some of the 3rd party tape combiners and they're not too bad.  There is also a 3rd party Jetfire...

US TRU MP releases this year (so far)
Prowl (many more cars to come I'm sure)

Wish I could say more but I'm far behind on 3party stuff...I'm no expert.  Go to tfw2005.  Say hello.  They know a lot.  I personally don't like ordering stuff from weird Asian ebay like sites or foreign sites in general.  I stick to BBTS or TFSource

Haven't they been talking about GB3 for a while now?  I guess he could be a ghost in the new movie..if that ever happens.

Hmmm....I'd like another at that price.  Might have to hit up the discount stores to see if there's any left.

Rob - you still need one ?

It was ok.  Big fan of robo 1 & 2 so had to see.

What was left of Murphy was disturbing to say the least.  Glad to see ED209 back and in force - not just falling down stairs and shooting innocent people.  Was also nice to see Murphy back in his original non-batman colors at the end of the movie.

I would buy it for $1.00.

I may not care for the figures but I'm on board here.  Doesn't look like much in the articulation game but love the design + it's a walker (not a zombie)....and it harkens back to OT.  yay

So are these all Walgreens & Rite Aid exclusives?  Not holding my breath after last year...

Perfect, thanks.  Every set for the last 3 years is in boxes waiting for me to have a larger room anyway, so I'm not in a hurry.  I'll hold out for now and see if it shows up at Amazon.  It'd basically be free for me if it does.

go get it....when you have time.

Partial cases.  They're (I think) the only retailer still carrying GI Joes and distribution centers just throw a couple/few to each store.  Same with about 9 years ago some PVC tranformer line could only get there and was soooo difficult to track the line down, but there are lots and lots of Walgreens.
