Oceanside, CA Toys R Us has 1 Transformers Prime RiD Bumblebee.

Oceanside, CA Target off El Camino Real has 3 Transformers Prime RiD Bumblebees and about 4 Transformers Prime Cyberverse Bumblebees.

Both stores appeared to have had more at one point, but got cleared out. I picked up the last Cyberverse TFP Ratchet, Cliffjumper, and Arcee along with a TFP RiD Prime. I'll be checking back tomorrow to see if they restock. ;)

Oceanside, CA Toys R' Us (near the 5 freeway) has a brand new stock or RiD Prime figures. 3-4 Cliffjumpers, 3-4 Wheeljacks, 4 Optimus Primes, and lots of Bumblebees.

They also have a fresh stock of Cyberverse Prime figures to include Vehicons, Ratchets, Cliffjumpers and Bumblebees.

And last but not least they have Bot Shots as well to include a Sentinel Prime if anyone is interested.

NOTE - They moved the Transformers over one aisle also.

Hello from Louisiana!

My fiance and I will be visiting San Francisco and Los Angeles in about six weeks for a wedding. I'll have some time to kill while in the SF area and was hoping to check out any potential good flea markets, vintage toy stores, comic book stores etc. that sell G1 and G2 stuff. I'm also ok with any of the higher-end KO stuff (esp a sunstreaker or wheeljack...), as long as the place isn't trying to sell them as if they're original G1. Any suggestions from the locals?

Thanks!

Anthony

Masterpiece Thundercracker

I picked up the last two last week in National City.

This morning I was in La Mesa running errands
and they had just recieved their box of 4 and
so I bought another one.

There should be three left. No signs of the new
voyagers.

And at the Wal-Mart in Escondido off Nordhal (by where the 78 & 15 meet) has pretty much all of the early Prime figures except for Vehicons & Airachnids.

The TRU in San Diego (1240 W Morena Blvd) has the Generations GDO Deluxe's. I picked up Wheelie and Swerve...There was one Swerve, two Springers, and two Cliffjumpers when I was there at noon.

Found First Edition figures at the Toys R Us/Babies R Us by Seal Beach. They have FE Arcee, Vehicon, and Terrorcon Cliffjumper. They also have the new Generations wave that consists of Hotspot and the Megatron based off the Bludgeon mold. The place just opened and because of that they have no shelf warmers to speak of so they have to order all the new stuff which is joy to my ears. :D

Unfortunately I talked to customer service about Mp-10 Optimus and they said none of the stores in So Cal have them, except for one by the Mexican border, which they said maybe had one figure left. I tried to have the employee order it online for me hoping that maybe they can see things I can't see on the website at home. The guy told me that they have a total of 650 of Mp-10s left at the regional headquarters, but even he couldn't place an order and thought that it was really strange. I asked him what's the most number of the figures they received at one point and he said around 3-5 and that the quantity varies store to store.

Thundercraker

There are three or four cases in the one in National City, San Diego. They also have First Editions as well. They still don't know when MP Op is coming in.

Picked up MP-10 Optimus at the TRU in Seal Beach. They only come two at a time and the truck comes in mostly on Monday nights and they mostly restock before they open on Tuesday.

I spotted a bunch of Voyager Class Generations FOC Soundwave at the TRU in Tustin. Also a few Prime Ultra Magnus's. I also saw a few interesting Scout class figures imported from China. They are labeled as 'Scout China' on the TRU tag and are sold at $9.99. I forgot which ones they were.

Went to many places today, most notable was the Target in Jeronimo. They had Series 1 Kreo Microchangers in the Valentines section. I assume this is the same for the other Targets with their Valentines section up. Snag 'em while they're hot!

Found Generations Voyagers' Blitzwing, Springer, and Sandstorm yesterday on the Naval Base here in San Diego. They had two of each, so I purchased a set for me and my nephew. Oh, no sales tax either.
