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.

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

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.

Very outdated, but I saw Masterpiece Skywarp at the Walmart in Tempe off Elliot and the I-10 on Monday 11/16. Seibertron was down for a few days, otherwise I would have posted sooner.

I saw masterpiece skywarp in my walmart today also, and i've been keeping an eye on him. Hopefully he'll be rolled back from $60 soon.

The larger universe figures that are $20ish are on sale for $15 now, and the orange airplane special 2 pack, along with the other walmart exclusive 2 pack (I forget the two in it) is on sale too now for $13.50.

I'm still meh about it all though. I wouldn't mind a cheaper skywarp though.

I need to save for grimlock still. :|

Anyone know the post-xmas deals going on in toysrus? target? kmart?

Long time no post!


-Is it me, or, is Masterpiece Grimlock REALLY hard to find?


As of last week, on friday, after a convo with a Toys R Us employee, i learned there were 324 grimlocks left in the Toys R Us factory. If you haven't seen Grimlock yet, chances look good that you will, eventually.

I recently (last week?) spoke with a Toys R Us employee in charge of the action figures area from the Toys R Us location over on power and southern in Mesa.

1. He confirmed for me that his location had never recieved any shipments of Masterpiece Grimlock other than the original shipment.

2. He confirmed for me that the 300+ units in the warehouse have been reduced in numbers down to 0.

3. He told me that in the Toys R Us computer system, the item (Masterpiece Grimlock) has been listed as "Discontinued".

4. :sad:

I attended a wedding in Phoenix yesterday and thought I'd do some toy hunting in AZ. I saw 3 MP Grimlocks at the TRU on N. Tatum Blvd in Northern Phoenix. I would call to confirm if you decide to head out there.

Thanks to your post, i am now the proud owner of 1 masterpiece grimlock! This would not be possible without your help.

Thanks again!

By the way, now there is only 1 grimlock left as of 4pm, October 12, 2010, in the state of Arizona, according to the staff @ Toys R Us at the Tatum and Cactus location.

That grimlock apparantly had the top flap of the plastic container opened, and the tape holding it down seems to have been cut or otherwise opened. The plastic flap did not appear to have any damage, and the figure did not seem to be tampered with, but don't take my word for it.

Leader Class Ironhide for $35.99 at Costco in Arizona

Postby Ruminus » Wed Jun 08, 2011 8:03 pm

Hey all, just thought I'd let everyone know that I just found cases of Leader Class DotM MechTech Ironhide for $35.99 here in Scottsdale, AZ at Costco! They were not in the center seasonal section where they usually have toys, they were over in isles near hardware (mowers and such). Isle 20 in the store on Hayden just north of Raintree in Scottsdale.

So if you're looking, I'm betting Ironhide is sitting in your local Costco as well.

They also have Leader Bumblebee and Sentinel Prime as well. Doesn't look like they are stocking anything else though.

Cheers and happy hunting!

Recently went to the Safeway in Casa Grande, AZ and spotted a few Voyager class DOTM Transformers.

In all I spotted Bumblebee, Thundercracker (Don't recall ever seeing him in other stores that are listed in the sightings database), Laserbeak (same note as Thundercracker), and Barricade.

If it were not for my preparing to pay off my van next week, Cracker would be mine for Roadbuster and Topspin to take some aggression out on. Those two really need someone to thrash.

Nice! I have yet to really go hunting in my area. I have less disposable income nowadays. :)

I'll post when i eventually do though.

Anyone know what is relatively hard to find in our area anyway?

I just checked my local toys R us here in mesa at superstition mall, and they sold out of masterpiece rodimus primes already as of 2 weeks ago. I think someone waltzed in and bought them all at once but i am not sure. Either way, they're sold out. There are no more on order. Has anyone seen any more around?

Went to the Toys R Us on 75th & Bell right when they opened and only found 2 Transformers: Prime Bumblebee's. So I picked them both up :grin: . Asked to see if they might have more, and no they said Bumblebee was all they had left. :sad:

I'm making a more in-depth post in the Arizona sightings thread, but I thought I'd let everyone know that there were five at the Toys R Us on Indian Bend as of today!

9139 East Indian Bend Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85250

Roll out!

Hello, fellow 'zonans! I'm a bit new to collecting, but I went around the Scottsdale area of the valley on Friday (1/27/12) using a printout of locations from this amazing website. I didn't go to every store, but I'll list the ones I did and what I found. Apologies if I don't describe them properly, I'm still learning all of the lingo!

Toys R Us
9139 East Indian Bend Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85250

Mostly Dark of the Moon movie stuff, but there were some surprises. Saw Generations Warpath, Thundercracker, Wheeljack (which you can find anywhere), and Kup. There were five Prime 1st Wave Bumblebees, which I passed up on. There were five Rage Over Cybertron exclusive sets. A couple each of Animated Rodimus and Ironhide. Some other random things; sorry I didn't write it all down, but I took a couple of cell phone shots.

Image

Image

From there, I went to a nearby Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and a Big Lots. Nothing worth reporting. They barely had a single TF item, and it was stuff for toddlers.

Then to the Wal-Mart on the corner of Chaparral and Pima, just west of the 101 N. All of the same stock as far as movie-based merch, but that was about it. Same with the Target in the same plaza as the Toys R Us.

A little bummed (I had been hoping for the 2nd wave of Prime figures - shot in the dark), I headed closer to home. Stopped by the Target on 44th St & Thomas Rd in Phoenix, but it was about the same as the other Target but for a lone Generations Wheeljack. I might pick one of those up just because I feel bad for how many of those I see everywhere. But then I went to the Ross next door, and... success! I walked away with Reveal the Shield Tracks, Jazz and Perceptor! :D These figures are remaining:

Image

The Toys R Us is getting a new shipment Tuesday morning. I called the Toys R Us at Paradise Valley mall, and while they were entirely out of Prime figures, they said their next shipment of stuff should arrive on Wednesday.

Good hunting, stalkers.
