Hello my fellow Seibertronians in California! I was at the following Walmart location

3382 Murphy Canyon Rd
San Diego, CA 92123

and found the new wave 2 Human Alliance basics (Tailpipe and Whirl) along with the wave 2 Activators (Topspin and Megatron). This store had a real nice Transformers set up. Biggest I've seen at a store yet!

Happy hunting. See you at BotCon!

Target in Long Beach on 33rd had 3 Fireburst Optimus Primes yesterday around 4pm. If they had him, that meant they had the rest of wave 3 which includes Voyager Class Sentinel Prime. Happy hunting!

So how is it that California gives us more traffic than anywhere else yet no one is posting sightings from California? C'mon guys! Help each other out. Let everyone know where you're finding stuff at. Tell us where the next TF meetup in Cali is going to be. Talk about how the Bears are going to kick your ass this NFL season. ;)

Yesterday, I saw Night Ops Ratchet at Marshall's. Coleman St. In San Jose, CA. I thought I have one already so I didn't buy it. Only $9.99! #-o

Not sure if they still have it when I go back after work today. Oh well :(

Hola California Seibertronians! Normally I'm on the Illinois forums but the wife and I are out here for a vacation, living it up in Napa Valley, and I figured I'd pass along a little sighting to you: the Napa Wal Mart on Lincoln Ave has two each of Generations Warpaths, Thundercrackers, and Wheeljacks! Hid em in the back of the Generations figs for anyone who wanted them.

Today I actually found WARPATH and THUNDERCRACKER at the Target on Summit in Fontana, (92336) for $11.99 each. There was one of each still there when I walked away. I bent the corners to help secondary gougers leave them for true fans/collectors. Good luck to those of you trying to complete your Seeker set and who are trying to find this interesting tank. Patience pays off, people. :grin:

Here's two BIG middle fingers to all the gougers that were at BotCon this year that tried to sell them to me for $45.- each.

DOTM Voyager Class Starscream Variant Found

Postby Crisdecal » Fri Jul 08, 2011 10:56 am

Motto: "Pimps up, hoes down!"
I was at my local Target store a few days ago to buy the store exclusive Voyager Starscream when I realized there was a variant in the Starscream mold. They were on the display standing side by side so it was easy to notice that there was a difference with the red plastic. One has the bright red plastic while the other has a dark translucent plastic. Let the hunt begin!

I'm guessing this would be the normal Starscream

Walmart in Azusa has leader Ironhide, Target in Alhambra has at least one Spacecase. The TRU in Covina is liquidating it's inventory because it is moving to West Covina, right now all action figures including TFs are 20% off.

My local Target [in Fullerton, Malvern] just put out their HA Leadfoots. Probably 5+, I bought one.

I haven't sighted any MP Rodimus in my area, I'll look out for him.

The Target in Rossmoor, Caliornia had at least 5 or more of Generation Scourge, Wheeljack, Thundercracker, and Kup when I was there a half hour ago. Today is good day for me because they're so hard to find. :D

Found first wave of Transformers Prime deluxe size figures at the Toys R' Us in Culver City. Had feeling I'd see them stocked not soon after Black Friday. They had all 3 figures, but only one Arcee and one Starscream left after I got mine. There are maybe like 3 more Bumblebees. Very much looking forward to Prime and Bulkhead. :grin: They have a lot of others stuff like a few generations Scourge and Wheeljacks, DotM, etc. There is also a sale 2 for 17.99 on all deluxe TFs.
