Hey all, I am looking for a super rare fig and the rumor is that it's been seen at red type planets. Castor from TRON Legacy. Apparently the line is basically over and he's the hard one to find. I would appreciate any assistance, as in grab and I'll get to you ASAP. Thank you.

Oops...Castor is only in the smaller 3.75 inch size. I've only read one report of the figure being found, so he's definitely the chase figure. I see all the rest of them at any store that has TRON merchandise.

Saw the new lego minifigures (pm me for location). Didn't pick them up yet because I didn't have the time to look for a cheat sheet (if one exists yet), feel them out or wait in line. Will try to make it back there tonight

Castor did make the last wave. According to Spinmasters he should be in wave 3 which has not hit. As far as ebay knows, he is rare and only available in a two pack from target right now. Both auctions are in SoCal so these may be showing up soon. He is not a chase, just not released yet...

Ah, that's the missing information. Thanks! From the pictures I saw, it looked like that 2 pack was the smaller action/scene figs (about 2 inches) rather then 3.75" figs. I guess I won't be combing every Target I see just yet. Still, if you see a Castor and I haven't posted about finding one yet, the above requested arrangement stands.

So I've been seeing the figures for the new Thor movie around lately. I'm sure this isn't what the film makers would like to hear, but the photo of Thor on the package reminds me so much of Keith Stone, the smooth redneck spokesman for Keystone beer, that I chuckle every time I see it. If only the figures came with a three-foot long Slim Jim, instead of Mjölnir, as an accessory the resemblance would be complete.

No Joe vehicles at the country club or elkhorn Ross'

New Transformers voyagers (Lugnut, Grapple and Strafe) were spotted at Target in the Bay area so if anyone spots Grapple please stash or pick up
Also BBTS has gotten a lot of new TF's in - scout, legends and deluxe - so they'll probably be hitting retail soon. I need scout Windcharger, deluxe Wheeljack and Thundercracker and from legends Megateon if anyone spots them
I am quoting this because I need everything in this quote too, from Target of course.
My area has been terrible about getting new TF stuff in, big thanks to Jason for scoring darn near everything after wave one for me.
One month later, still no luck in finding Windcharger, Grapple, Wheeljack or Thundercracker. It doesn't even look like stores are restocking.

With movie stuff coming out next month, is it time to panic yet?

Re: Rickey knows Rickey best

Yup, looks like its time to panic

From TFW2005

Reveal the Shield Scout Assortment Possibly Cancelled - Legends Assortment Status Unknown


Quote:
According to various Hasbro Retail Merchandiser Reps, it would seem that Hasbro has chosen to cancel the Reveal the Shield Scout Assortment in the United States. Beyond the evidence that these figures cannot be found anywhere, word is coming in that some online retailers are cancelling existing pre-orders that they now cannot fill.

This means that the United States may not see a retail release of Windcharger, Chopsaw, Rumble, Bodylock, and Downshift.

As for the Reveal the Shield Legends Assortment? That is apparently still up in the air, but the major retail chains are not placing orders for these figures, as they are still sitting on Hunt for the Decepticons and there's apparently a giant, blockbuster movie and toy release on the horizon that they are ordering the H-E-double hockey stick out of...

The last bit of information we got out of our conversations is that Hasbro is currently looking at a different avenue to get these figures released. We're going to keep this as A RUMOR for the time being, but if you want to be assured any of those figures, your best bet is to start looking at imports or online retailers.

Crap, I know from past experience that the last wave is always a [censored] to find before movie stuff comes out, but somehow it always manages to sneak up on me. BBTS isn't even taking pre-orders for Windcharger and Grapple anymore.

Luckily the case with 2x Warpath, Wheeljack, and Thundercracker is still available, just under $112 shipped. Anybody want to split a case?

Or in other words... SNAP INTO IT! Too bad he doesn't come with a Slim Jim accessory. You know, to match his Slim Jim skin. Honky Tonk Man... double hitchhiker FTW!

Ran across Series 3 of the Halo: Reach figs. Pleasantly surprised to see them and purchase them.

I'm sure you all remember the HAL from '82. Well gentlemen, nearly thirty years later we just got one big step closer to G.I. Joe being a reality with the Navy's demonstration of the HEL:

The Navy has lasers!

Hit a few places this morning; nothing new. Found remnants of G.I. Joe wave 4; looking for Vipers and Iron Grenadiers. No sign of wave 3.

Well my interest level isn't high this time around (will probably change upon seeing some of the stuff in person) but DOTM voyagers and leaders have been purchased in the Bay Area thanks to folks asking employees to pull them

The new DOTM trailer is up at Apple trailers and it looks epic! (will also be in front of Fast Five tomorrow)
