haha. well im on summer vacation so i have nothing else better to do than just go out to targets and wal marts.... and since theres no school i dont have to commute.... more gas for me to go about.... an im the valley, so the wal marts, trus, targets, sears, kohls, etc are in good proximity to each others. but yea, i should be doing something more productive than going out hunting for toys :? .

pacoima target, the new t.e.c.h. toys. titanium optimus, rodimus, and starscream. and also if you're into the gi joe 25th anniversary, they did get all of them including the boxed set, however the collectors(maybe scalpers?) pretty much hoarded 'em. you'll probably find storm shadow and snake eyes, but all the cobras, flint, and the boxed sets are gone. i didnt really give a hoot about gi joe, so it was all good.

Carson Target: Well, on my way home from the X-Games, I decided to take a stop. They had some plush TFs, which I haven't seen in a while, picked up Slumblebee, still have a ton left. They also had 2 Unleashed Primes. Other than that, more nothing, and they were restocking at the moment. No Ultimate BB endcap either.

Dublin TRU - most figures I've ever seen. 4-5 of every Voyager, shelves full of all deluxes, and even had a few concept BB's even, which I have never seen before in store. If you are in the Bay Area and close to Dublin, hurry and check it out if you need that BB.

Good news for OC people! Went to the Laguna Niguel Target today to buy a new TV (15-inch hi-def for 150, you just CAN'T f*cking pass that up. Bought the last one), and of course I looked in the TF aisle! The Ultimate Bumblebee endcap isn't up, meaning their "reset" hasn't been done, but that didn't stop them from restocking on some things that I haven't seen since early June. No "important" figures, sadly (still looking for that Jazz, praying for a BB Concept, looking for Ironhide, etc.), and nothing hiding like last time (thanks for the Voyager Starscream, stupid employee!), HOWEVER: they fully restocked their Target Exclusive Scouts/Basics/Energon and Cybertron Repaints, and I picked up Hardtop, unwilling to pick up Arcee in hopes of finding a Deluxe one in the future. I should've picked up Skyblast, as I have the Energon Skyblast and he happens to be one of my favorites, and this repaint looks GREAT with the military colors. However, they do have every Scout you could imagine, so if you wanted Arcee Basic, pick her up now, boys and girls!

Also, they had 2 Unleashed Primes - not bad at all! Didn't pick one up because I don't particularly want one. On top of that, they have several Robot Heroes, but not just Thundercracker/Jazz! They happen to have at least 10 to 11 Optimus Prime/Unicron left (!!!), and of course I grabbed one!

Surprisingly though... they had no Real Gear. I was hoping to find High Score 100 or maybe even Meantime or Booster X-10 (keep forgetting to pick that little guy up every time I see him... he IS Lazerbeak), but nope! Nothing!

Other than one Zoom Out 10x... in hiding. Hmm.... are we going to start seeing Real Gear shortages too?! Come on, Hasbro, get it in gear!

Movie Jazz g1 repaint is out at Target.

August 9, 2007: I was at the Pasadena, CA Target store this morning and I bought the Movie Jazz G1 repaint, there weren’t anymore left. The purpose of this was to let you guys know that it is out there. I would have posted this on the sighting page but it didn’t have a picture of this figure. Thanks for your time.

South Bay NorCal sighting:

Target (Hillsdale Ave.) Bunch of Transformer Robot Replicas Barricade & Unleashed Primes.

TRU (Blossom Hill Rd.) Had one Payload from the new 09 Bumblebee wave and that was it. I had them check in back and were all out.

TRU (Winchester) nothing; they put new stock out last night and all of it was gone.

According to a friend looking on my behalf...

Union City Target - standardly devoid of voyagers and deluxes
Union City WM - same, but has scattered realgear and tech stuff

and what I found

Fremont Target - Bought the last Titaniums, but there were a few deluxes. Didn't see 2nd wave stuff though

Friday 11:00 am.

Toys R Us (Puente Hills / City of Industry)
Nothing!! No voyager, no deluxe.

Target (Puente Hills / City of Industry)
Nothing!! No voyager, no deluxe.

Walmart (Puente Hills / City of Industry)
Nothing!! No voyager, no deluxe.

K-mart (La Puente / City of Industry)
Nothing!! No voyager, no deluxe.

Garrr. I'm tired of all the time and gas that I'm spending. I'm thinking I might just give up until the fall. :( :sad:

Edit: The Target in Puente Hills had 2 Ultimate Bumblebees. Almost forgot to mention that...

Hah, I used to live in Hacienda Heights, dude. Do the TRUs and Wal-Marts at least have any Classics leftovers in clearance? I'm gonna be up there tomorrow and I'm wondering if I should stop by those stores.


Oh, and yeah, I went to my local TRU, nothing noteworthy. They seem to have decreased shelf and peg space; the walls are completely full, but they're full of stuff like Real Gear and TECH Toys and Robot Replicas. Ugh.

Local Target, they haven't even stocked yet. I'll check after work to see if there's any new stuff.

You know, I'm going out hunting in a couple hours, but seriously, if I don't even find Wave 1 stuff (PLEASE JAZZ COME OUT OF HIDING!), I'm gonna start to get a mite pissed. Can't find anything.

Yeah, we should totally coordinate. There's no Classics left. Two weeks ago the TRU's had a Jetfire and Optimus Prime, but it's gone now. Unless they restock tonight, I don't think they'll have it.

And yeah, I've seen plenty of Deluxe Jazz at the local Kohl's too. You should definitely check that one out.

By the way, I'm looking for Concepts Bumblebee and Arcee, just like everyone else. Please let me know if you can help!!

I'm going to check the TRU's in Arcadia tonight after work. I'll let you guys know if I see anything.

Yeah anyone look for Classics, know this: they're gone. I mean, find one? Grab the Hell out of it and run like mad. But will you find them? HIghly unlikely.

That being said, if anyone finds some, please, say something.

And thanks for the Kohl's suggestions - what else can be found there, pray tell?

Friday 3:30pm

Walmart Pico Rivera, CA. (10am)
Has a fresh case of Deluxe assortment and some Voyagers.
After my pick (1xArcee, 1xLongarm, 1xPayload), here's what's left on the shelf still:

Image

DELUXES
1 x Arcee
1 x Bonecrusher
2 x Dreadwing
1 x Brawl
2 x Scorponok
1 x Wreckage
1 x Swindle
a number of protoforms
VOYAGERS
2 x Ironhide
2 x Ratchet
2 x Megatron
1 x Starscream

Target Alhambra, CA. (8:10am)
3 x Ultimate Bumblebee (a scalper grabbed all 3, I managed to get one from him)
1 x 6" Titanium Optimus Prime (I picked it up)
1 x 6" Titanium Rodimus Prime (I picked it up)
1 x 6" Titanium Starscream (I picked it up)
some scout class

Target Duarte, CA. (12pm)
some scout class
2 x 6" Titanium Optimus Prime
1 x 6" Titanium Rodimus Prime
1 x 6" Titanium Starscream

Walmart Rosemead (8:45am) has nothing
Target Whittier (9:30am) has nothing
Walmart City of Industry (11am) has nothing
Walmart Duarte (12:40pm) has nothing
Target Pasadena East (1:10pm) has nothing
Target Pasadena Old Town (1:30pm) has nothing
Toys R Us Alhambra (2pm) has nothing

Okay guys that's my store run report for today, I have been up and driving around since 7:50am and finally came back around 2:45pm, covered almost 100 miles making a big circle. Most of these stores are due for reset, espeically Walmarts, I've seen them relocated the action figure section and getting ready for new shipments to be dropped in anytime. The Big One is coming.

Starting tomorrow I will be on a business trip for 6 days, wish you guys good luck hunting.

Cheers!

*** NOTE: I'm still looking for Deluxe Dropkick ***
