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.

Oh really? Hmm :-?


I'm gonna have to czech that out then :D I hadn't seen any nightwatches at three other walmarts i have checked already. And yes! I have seen everything except for incinerator also, which is what i'm really interested in. keep me posted please if you see any :D When does the premium line start hitting shelves?

I am not sure if you were aware, but while at target the other day, i happened across 2 new target exclusive basics; crosshairs (repainted Strongarm, who was repainted from energon) and warpath (originally cybertron?) I hadn't even heard of their existence before and i accidentally saw them.

I didn't see them at any other targets though, just one.

So what do you think about the rave? are you even into that kind of thing?

I'm interested purely in the novelty of it; and i admit i'm curious too 8)

it seems novel but i might be working in frisco or boulder, not sure..
could be interesting, but i've never heard of any of those dj's.
if i see incinerator, i'll call you asap. but yea, i have seen many of the nw primes at fry's marketplace. they also have a sale going on right now, and you can find most deluxes.
no word on the premium line, only a few i really want and it's not imperative that i find them, i mean, i have the movie line.
intersting find on scouts. if i collected them i might have more to say.

nice, nw prime is at the wally world by your house btw. i was there this morning. need to get some checks in before i decide to get him or not. he looks good in package i must say though. i think if i get him i don't know if i'll get the premium prime.. i dunno.. all the repaints, the premiums.. the movie line as it has been. not sure how much more i need after incinerator, stealth bb.. we shall see.
thanks for the info on the rave.

I was just there recently and i didn't even see any! :o

Weirdness.

I went to 1 market place and 2 walmarts last night, the ones you recommended; and all sold out!

Fry's had it for $45 :o

Stealth BB? :-?

I've seen the red allspark repaint of him so far.. hmm well i mean, not in stores anyway. Let me know if you see one of those; it seems like most places are only restocking with everything from the previous wave of deluxes. I've only seen allspark deluxes at that one target and they were pretty much gone by the time i was through there.

I'm debating getting all the premiums too. Sucks being a completist. So far i have everything relieased except 08 bb xmod rc car from radio shack, the 4 latest real gear repaints, and the bestbuy exclusives, final stand BB (the movie-scene boxes), the scorponok and blackout exclusive from Toy R Us, and.. that's all that comes to mind at the moment. I didn't think hasbro would try to milk this line as much as it did when i first decided to collect the whole thing 1 year prior to the movie. good thing i budgeted for it though :SMUG:

Just so you know, I stumbled across Divebomb, Jolt, Big Daddy, and Grindcore way out at a walmart in Higley. It is out on williamsfield road somewhere, I was with a friend and didn't pay attention to where we were going and by chance the walmart was nextdoor to the original destination. There were more left as of that time, no gaurantees now though.

no worries. i just found them at wally world at country club and 60.
also found a 5 pack of roboto heroes wally world exclusive called final battle.
haven't read anything about it yet, i'll take a pic, but it's similar to the decepticon sneak attack.
i picked up big daddy and jolt, the other two just really didn't do it for me. that thundercracker mold is one of the worst in history.
grindcore is meh. if i see him again and i'm in a buying mood i might pick him up.
thanks da

I agree about the thundercracker mold "divebomb" if you read his profile on the back, nobody likes him because of the toxic fumes he leaks from his radioactive fuel.

Personally, i think it might actually be the poop smell coming from his poop-brown paint. (and paintjob in general)

actuall, all the bio's on these wally world deluxes are pretty aweful. "jolt had his tires slashed by blackout, and it was his first and last lesson from him."
jesus, did a 5 year old write these?

went to the wally world at country club and sixty. found the two newest star wars tf's releases.. also saw more all spark power deluxes: salvage, stealth bb, but no store exclusives. glad i nabbed the first time i saw them.. other than that a few new robot heroes.. but i suspect, most wally's around here probably have the same stock. i'll check out a target tomorrow.
