other than that, that walmart had several voyagers:
ss x2
ironhide
megs
ratchet x3

next wave of deluxes as well as voyager op and megs at tru @ 60 and power
well, the wave was there till i found them mysterious placed in the macfarlane section
anyways, new shipments every tuesday morning apparently, and only one case per shipment.. meaning few toys
that's the deal

congratulations on your find!

I went to 8 different places today on a massive tf hunt. i found some interesting things here and there, some movie robot heroes, all 4 voyagers in one place at the same time, and at ToysRus, i found a lot of primuses! Yes! Primuses i said! (plural for primus)

But there was only a deluxe brawl leftover from your last raid.

They also had what seemed like MORE classics there than when i went last time. and now cybertron deluxes and scouts, yay!

But. still.

all it was was disappointment and empty pegs of nothingness.


...until i hit the motherload. And now, i am the proud owner of 4 08 bumblebees, an arcee, and dreadwing. I'll post pics later.

and no, they're not all for me. ;)

i might get thundercracker though

Ah, k, gotcha.


I was lucky enough to find finalbattle jazz, the movie pickup truck (longarm?) and some other truck that is in the video game too so now all i am missing is dropkick.

I am also not so sure about getting any of the g1 redeco's but we'll see. I may just to complete the line. I'd probably get a skywarp repaint though.

If i locate any dropkicks i will inform you. I'm also looking for leader brawl.

No, it's the movie starscream in g1 anime colors repaint.

But in other news; Attention mesa, az!

Leader Brawl is now out in force. I saw him in target and in walmarts. Aaand, one walmart had the new wave of deluxes. the one with dreadwing, payload, longarm, and recon barricade. I didn't see any bb 08's though.

i don't have the time to post pics right now, but i will in about 12 hours or less from this time (1:47 am). So, go looking!

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~!

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.
