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.

i forgot to answer your question in the last post, but forgot.. i got the two ultra class movie exclusives online from the website like a month ago, they arrived last week sometime..
however, a mailman buddy says he saw them at the tru off of the 101 and indian bend.
and no, i haven't see an premiums yet.. but i only want bb i think. maybe megs.. ehh.. maybe not.

I just saw some premiums @ target. weird thing was though all the deluxes were ringing up @ $6.99. what the heck? Is there a sale i don't know of going on? Or is this a store error? Are you interested in these prices? ALL of the deluxes rang up like this; less than Scouts! So, i picked up 8 deluxes and saved $24. woo! I only saw Jazz and Barricade premiums for deluxes, and voyagers were blackout and ironhide, i only picked up ironhide though. The premium paintjobs disappointed me in person. I've yet to see the others though. perhaps all the good ones had already been taken off the shelves?

yea, i'm starting to see the prem's out all over, but they don't do anything for me. leader megs would be the only one i would get, but i don't like the mold enough for it to be a necessity. rather spend my money on other things.
no animated or uni sightings yet.. however, kay bee in the mall had some repackaged older line toys in new universe packaging, as well as the micomaster jet line (superion) and a bunch of early waves of the movie line..
that's all i know at the moment. still seeing most star wars tf's all over and most robot heroes

Yeah, i was just at my walmart last night and saw premium megs and optimus and picked them up. I'm only seeing premium jazz and barricade however. Are there premium basics? I heard someone in the premiums thread say that they got basics online? :\ So yeah, i'm also pondering the premiums as well, i don't know if i should keep my originals if the premiums have better paintjobs. I might for nostalgia's sake. what do you think?

maybe the wave one releases will be worth more since they seem like we won't see them again due to the premium line.
i dunno.
i got that prime blade add on from bbts.. so that takes care of opty, but the megs.. i like the new paint, but i don;t really care that much.
haven't hear of premium basics.
that might be overkill.
gonna start checking the fry's marketplaces soon. they always get the new lines about a month early.

Just got back from Walmart in Mesa off the 101 and Dobson. They have all the Wave 1 TF Animated series. Every figure from that wave was there as of 3pm Sunday.

i went to the toy's'r'us at indian bend and the 101 and picked up all the exclusives, the two ultras: jetstorm and sky shadow and the two voyagers: inferno and erector
they had the whole shelf full of animated, which , intend on getting a few, but i have picked up some and am not happy with the figures and i wouldn't plan on getting the line, like i have pretty much done with the movie and all of classics, and star wars (my first mistake): aside from some premiums and scout and basic figs.
but yea, everything's available on the shelves.. i'm really looking forward to classics 2

At my walmart on greenfield and mckellips, I was fortunate enough to find an Animated Swoop, Sentinel Prime, the two new universe deluxes, i think i saw an acidstorm and 2 galvatrons for sure. Oh, also saw a recon/whatever/ black painted bumble bee. There were some blitzwings too. Of most interest, i saw the Universe repaint of Classics Jetfire. It was kinda snazzy looking. Went back the next day though and it was gone. aaand there were 2! :o I remember Jon talking about seeing some of these a long time ago though, so, at least i'm seeing them out here now. :)

I am beginning to see Universe Ironhide at retail; spotted at a walmart and a target.

Checked Kaybee's in fiesta mall today; they have quite a few of those center pieces for the bruticus combiner of the energon line. Might be worth picking up in anticipation of the universe combaticon repaints. if you're into all that.

I already have my superlink bruticus, so. i'm on the fence about it.

Talk me into it, kaybee's!

that and, no rumored $20 Animated Ultra magnuses to be seen. or any leaders for that matter. For $23, they had that universe optimus prime vs. megatron 2 pack though. I never liked those molds though.

Oh, and, target has their sale going on still. $8 for deluxes. Seems like the ultimate, leader, and ultra size classes are also on sale. I'll post exact amounts later.

Last week i picked up the Costco cybertron galaxy force optimus prime and cybertron crumplezone repaint at the costco on country club and baseline, and also picked up the kmart minicons from lindsey and main. 2 left. At costco, there was a whole palette full, and watch out, I did see some minor paint app problems on some of them.

Bought the Autobot Ambush (Dirge/Roadbuster) 2-pack from Target this afternoon on the way home from the airport. Standoff Beneath the Streats (Ratbat/Springer) were also there, but I wanted the voyager-class Cybertron Starscream mold Dirge was repainted from more.

More specifically, the Fry's on Baseline and McClintock in Tempe has a whole isle end-cap of deluxes, voyager, and leader class.

Haven't seen ROTF at my Fry's (Ironwood & Combs) yet, but I'm pretty sure I can confirm the sale because it goes for the U2.0 deluxe class mine still has too.

One each of Legends Ratchet and Megatron are the first two I've seen for ROTF though, seen at Walgreen's @ Ironwood and Southern (across from the high school). They've still got 3 Animated Oil Slicks too.

Does anyone know Jetfire and Devastator's release date?

I've been hunting them down, but have yet to have any luck.

I'm in the Laveen area of Phoenix.
