Nice! Happy birthday to you, sir; leader brawl would make for an awesome birthday present in my opinion ;)

I've seen about 5 dvd primes, but once you have either 20th anniv. op. prime, mp 1, or mp 04, it just doesn't look or feel.. "right".

i'm still looking for thundercracker, nightwatch prime, dropkick, air raid, and that newer version of hard top, and perhaps the 2 new realgear repaints, and then i will have completed collecting the entire movie line (unless i've forgotten one) wee~!

yesterday at my toyrus, it was overflowing with leader brawls, and like 2 primuses are left.

At walmart, i saw like 5 ultimate bumblebees, and like 4 dvd optimus primes. :o

Motto: "Run away! Run away!"
New Walmart at Rio Salado and Dobson in Mesa has TONS of Transformers. Many many Deluxes including classic and concept Bumblebees. Lots of Voyagers too. Today is the grand opening, so I'm sure that's why there is so much stock.

I saw a few Leader Primes at Target in the Chandler Fashion Center area. No good deluxes or anything for that matter.

the walmart @ greenfield and mckellips has the entire line of movie figs, all leader class, most voyager, and all delux. as well as plenty of dvd primes and some primus's, and many many death stars.
no robot heroes or mp ss however. but all else there's 20 of each.

found the movie wave 2 of robot heroes out at the stapley and 60 walmart in mesa. still some dvd primes there too. some deluxes and all leaders, and plenty of cybertron primus'.
no sign on wally world starscream, but i imagine we will probably see him by the end of the week.
looking forward to seeing some of the allspark power figures soon too.

i thought DA would do the official announcement, but indeed mp ss has been found at the wally world at greenfield and mckellips in mesa. i got one on friday with about 15 to choose from.
kinda dissapointed on the sloppiness on the paint (on every single one) but it's a nice figure.
also they had some of the wave 2 robot heroes from the movie line.

Well, I woke up this morning thinking about how I spend the last 20 days not checking up on Wal-Marts for MP Starscream, so I'm wondering if any Arizonians in the areas of Mesa and Tempe seen them?

Motto: "Run away! Run away!"
I found 2 MP Starcreams at the Walmart on Elliot and Priest. The bad news is those are the ones I bought. The good news is there is shelf space set aside for him, so hopefully they will restock him.

I did not find MP-SS or shelf space set aside for him at the following Walmarts:
Dobson/Rio Salado
Baseline/Country Club
Baseline/Stapely

Of course come Friday, anything can happen with where MP-SS shows up.

Ah, awesome, that's close to me, so I'm gonna have to get down there quickly. I didn't spot it fast in your post since you had the words lowercase.

Well I went to Wal-Mart and went to the aisle where they had all the TFs displayed and I didn't see MP SS there, but the story doesn't end there. I went ahead and picked up Final Battle Jazz and Arcee (Still can't find '08 Camero BB damn it).

They had 20th Anniversary DVD MP Prime, but he was still at that $70 price point so I didn't touch it. There was a guy looking for Ultimate BB there and I didn't see any around so I told him to try Toys R Us or Wal-Mart on Southern.

So I gave up, thought they ran out and went ahead and cashed up Jazz and Arcee, but then I saw Ultimate BB on the top shelves in a different location. I thought to myself that this must also be the case with MP SS so I went through all the aisles in the area looking for MP SS and sure enough, they were put up on the top shelves. I snagged 3 of them and cashed them up and headed out. I was a happy camper :)

way to go.. we can show you the door, but you must go through it.
many times, when you hear that a fig is somewhere, it's there, but you might have to look higher than ground level for him.
enjoy.

found all three of the newest wave of swtf's with the tank, snow speeder, etc.. at fry's marketplace on mcclintock/stapley.
they always seem to get a few shipments of things in early or on time with everyone else in the country. i found movie voyager ratchet a month before the release in june..
and they usually have things on sale for several dollars off.

Yeah, i did originally find the MP SS tf's, it was a beautiful sight. And even like a week before xmas, i found quite a few of them at one walmart which now escapes my memory.

last week i went to the walmart on 35th avenue and bethany home, and to save everyone else the trouble, do not go there as all i saw at the time was.. 2 roleplay/tech tf's. and like 1 star wars tf.

My walmart here on greenfield and mckellips completely tore down their tf display. I couldn't find any tf's in there; i hope they get the new tf's in soon though.

Is anyone else seeing any of the new allspark tf's yet?

Just so we know, i have seen allspark power deluxes at target, the one on riosalado and mclintock.
No bumblebee repaint however. just camshaft and landmine. There was 1 landmine left that i saw.


Also, nightwatch prime was supposedly sighted in queencreek.

Has anyone else seen any of the allspark figs around?

I have not seen any voyagers yet either.
