    I think Circ. City is the cheapest I've seen. Visit the Bargains and coupons board.

    Got mine!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    CC had about 10 or so copies. Cool deal.
    As for BB not having them: they are advertising in BB's weekly circular!!! Pg 7, center of the bottom. BB is supposed to have stock on all of that stuff.
    It's probably either in the back, or in a place you don't expect. I would try these BB section, in order:
    • New Releases/Best Sellers
      Anime'
      Family
      Box Sets (or Collector Sets)
      TV DVDs
      Science Fiction
    Gotta be in one of those...

    They had season one and two at the local BB, but I couldn't justify it on top of buying Ice Age, MIB/MIIB AND clash of the titans [​IMG]

    I stopped in at BB on the way home to check the price of a gift I'm contemplating, and while in there checked where Transformers S2, Pt 1 was. It was in Anime', just like I thought. A whole shelf of it!

    JohnS! I said CC had it for $39.99 both in post #4 of this thread, AND in my Weekly Roundup!!! :p)
    But I'm jealous you're cracking it open tonight. The missus has decreed this will be a Christmas gift for the boy... [​IMG]
    (I think she forgets that if it wasn't for me, he wouldn't have discovered the show! Oh, well...I can wait. I suppose.)

    Just watched episode: Autobot Spike
    never seen it before..whole lot of fun.
    they also add an animated version of Frankenstein that lasts a few seconds..pretty funny.
    Menus have changed, I like it..not too bad.
    Going to try and crack another couple episdoes tonight.
    I really like it now, since we now have about 40 episdoes to watch.
    I plan on doing a huge Transformers marathon one day.
    But afarid it might take longer than a day[​IMG]
    I was thinking about taking those animated cells(we now have 4) and framing each one seperatly, but framing it in a light case.
    You might have seen those animated light frames at the Diseny store or WB store.
    What do you think??

    Just curious, does every box have the same two cels or do they put different ones in each box? My S1 cels are Starscream with Skywarp, and Rumble (or Frenzy) and my S2:V1 cels are Megatron and Ravage.

    The cels are supposed to be the same in every box, just like w/S1.
