Sadly, they don't have Junkheap anymore. I'm sure they still have Sky Shadow, though I'm not sure. I'll check again later this week and report back.

And also...anyone know when TRU Express packed up and left Lougheed Mall?

Pretty soon after Boxing day I think. Too bad, I wanted to visit Lougheed soon.

Anyone seen the Alliance Soundwave in CDN stores as yet? Haven't see him anywhere!

Longs for the days of G1 where we only had to worry about Megatron, Soundwave and Laserbeak wanting to be Autobots, Swoop calling himself Tracks and Slingshot calling himself Slingslot!

Haven't seen anything new 'round these parts since those Prime cartoon guys were released.

Same over here. They showed up about 2 weeks before Christmas and were entirely gone by boxing day. Luckily I managed to pick up most of them, and someone helped me get ahold of Voyager Prime, but I missed out on Cliffjumper. :BANG_HEAD: Shelves are still empty...

Though I do hear that Superstores are stocking the later HAs, but they haven't got to Soundwave yet.

Sorry to hear you couldn't score a Cliff. I got him, Arcee, Bumblebee, Optimus, and Bulkhead, and I really enjoy Cliff more than I thought I would. And damn, is that one sweet-ass car mode.

Yeah, the worst part is I probably could've found one but I was trying to save money for Christmas, and thought they'd restock. Stupid move on my part. He was one of the figures I wanted most out of the line. Hasbro's toyline decisions have been really stupid lately... they overstock crappy shelfwarmers and make the actual desired stuff extremely limited. :(

Not to mention distribution sucks and the stuff you actually want to buy either never comes out here or it's in such tiny numbers that unless you drop by the TRU on one specific day, they're all gone.

I know what you mean about wanting to save money for Christmas, and I felt the same way, but damn it, they were all on sale and I knew I wouldn't see them again (being TRU-exclusive First Edition figures, Bulkhead being shortpacked, and this being Canada), so I grabbed them all... overspending in the process.

Yeah, I really should've just went and got it. But of course because they were on sale people (and scalpers) were hoarding all the good ones. So they'd have a full selection at 1pm and by the time you'd get there at 5:30 there'd be nothing left but Bumblebees and maybe an Arcee if you're lucky. :roll:

I think Arcee was shortpacked. If not, damn, was she popular and moved fast in my area.

Yeah, they had 4 freakin' Bumblebees to a case and I think 1 or 2 of the other ones... Or maybe it was 4 Bee, 3 Starscream and 1 Arcee, I can't remember. :BANG_HEAD:

I managed to get 2 each of Bumblebee & Arcee and 1 Starscream because I was giving them to a friend for Christmas. I'm personally skipping out on Starscream intentionally to wait for the Voyager. I also picked up an extra Bee to exchange for a CJ, if I ever get the chance again...

Awesome line though. Bulkhead is exceptionally cool and even Voyager Prime is impressive. Haven't opened Bee or Arcee but I already have NYCC Arcee as well.

Prime deluxes are @ Ages Three and Up...if you feel like spending $45 for them.

Also, went to TRU Metrotown for the first time in a while to see their TF section utterly decimated. Between this and TRU Express Lougheed closing, I'm having very serious doubts as to whether or not I'll be able to complete my Movie figure collection by getting Wheeljack.

I'm sure they'll get it in eventually. It is DOTM after all.

Well, we never got that moviefied Lockdown wave here. Or the Scout Powerglide. (Go figure, eh? The only moviecrap I wanted... :roll: )

It was Cyberverse Powerglide and it did show up briefly at Walmarts. You might still be able to find it if you're lucky, but I'm not sure. Lockdown was pretty hard to find, I only ever saw him once as well, I can't even remember where, but it definitely wasn't TRU. Walmart seems to be a lot more reliable with the movie stuff it seems.

Not really. Everytime I walk in there, it seems like they have the same crap that was there the last time I was there. And the time before that. And the time before that. And so on.

Hmm, must be all getting snatched up right away as soon as it's sighted then. :( Well, I don't think that Wheeljack wave has even hit the states yet, so there's still hope.

Well that's just prime.

Also, colour me surprised. My TRU in Brossard, South Shore of Montreal, restocked on the Prime cartoon Voyagers. And they've redesigned the layout of the Transformers section, leaving only a peg or two for Deluxes. Most of the space is now shelving for those knockoff Lego sets.

Slap me for double-posting, but Blurrman, you ain't screwed yet. The Brossard TRU (South Shore of Montreal) restocked on Deluxe Class figures from the Prime cartoon, so maybe you'll see them in your area soon.

Nice! I've heard that they're doing small restocks of Voyagers in BC too, although of course the Bulkheads get snapped up fast.

They've changed the layout again since I posted that. Deluxes once again have peg space, though it's far less than what it used to be.
