for l.a. residents.... i found an extra voyager megatron at a wal mart. i didnt buy him cause it wouldve been too much to spend since i was buying other stuff. however i did stash him somewhere, message me for location of wal mart and megs. hopefully hes still there. and btw, his box is kinda creased and dented due to poor box handling or poor shipping.

Anyone in San Diego, there's nothing anywhere. Spotted a Voyager Megs at the Oceanside Wal-Mart, but that was pretty much the only noteworthy thing.

Oh yeah, the Kohl's at Oceanside has the most Deluxe toys I've seen in a while. A bunch of Wreckages and Scorponoks, a couple Swindles, and one Brawl.

I saw one for $45 there. They were also selling Voyager Starscream for $60.

EDIT: Oh, and I hate how Target restocks so late. I make the rounds at around 11:30, and they haven't even begun to restock stuff in the toys section.

Is there anything worth looking at at the KB in UTC?

Can anyone explain why they're hasn't been any Transformers other than Real Gear in all of Orange County in about half a month?

Hopefully we start seeing some restocking now that Comic-Con's over, but this is ridiculous.

Note however, to any other OC TF nerds: look carefully. I've found a lot of cases where someone has hidden something - I found a Voyager Starscream hidden amongst Real Gear at a Target in Mission Viejo, and I found Blackout hiding amongst six Ratchets at another Target in Laguna Niguel. Also, I found Barricade in between some Optimus Prime "laptop" things at a Target as well, forget which one that was at.

Toys R Us in Mission Viejo was f*cking raided, though - I went the week before Comic-Con, they had 2 walls of Jazz, a wall and a half of Wreckage, and a load of scouts. I go back today and there was absolutely nothing left. The movie display's down, sure, but there's nothing left. Absolutely jack, except for some Robot Heroes, and even THOSE are rare now! They did have two of the Bumblebee/Soundwave, which I didn't pick up personally, as I haven't seen those elsewhere - in fact, they had a lot of Robot Heroes I haven't seen in a while. Mostly I've just been seeing the pack with Jazz and Thundercracker.

Oh, and for anyone looking, the MV TrU had one of those Titanium Autobot Heroes two packs left, and a bunch of Titanium 3'' Galvatrons.

San Diego...Found several of the new Real Gear at Target in Chula Vista (Broadway) if you want to make a trip to southbay. They had about four each of Meantime and High Score 100, plus the walmarts in that area all have the 2 pack realgears of the first wave. Other than that, hit up your Targets this weekend, there should be a bunch of restocking going on, including an Ultimate Bumblebee endcap display.
