Guys, if you haven't picked up Voyager Megs RID I found one at TRU in Altamonte Springs yesterday afternoon. It's hidden behind 5 OPs...

Walmart in Ocoee on Highway 50 (Colonial Drive) had TF Prime figures, Bot Shot Launchers, and Bot Shot 3-packs. They had 3 RID Bumblebee, 1 RID Cliffjumper, and 1 Wheeljack (which I purchased). They also had a few Prime Cyberverse figures, 2 Bumblebee, 1 Arcee, and 1 Cliffjumper I believe. They had several of the bot shot launchers and 3-packs.

RID Ratchet still unseen... I'm actually having better luck finding Arcee in different Walmart/Target stores than I am with Ratchet...

Still can't find Soundwave, Ratchet, or anything besides BB, Cliffjumper, and Wheeljack (I own them already). My 2 Walmarts have had their TFA Revealers pegs empty for 3 weeks - each store is waiting on delivery for 2-3 cases, and hasn't gotten them yet. My Target has had the same exact stock for almost 3 weeks - 11 BB, 4 Cliffjumper, 4 Wheeljack. They won't get any more in stock because their auto-ordering system (or so I am told) won't order more until the stock depletes some. My TRU shelves have been barren of Deluxes as well except for 5 BB, and a Cliffjumper. They do however have 5 Voyager Megatrons and 6 Voyager Optimus.

I hope some of our other fellow Florida hunters are doing better than I am :(

I've managed to pick up almost all of wave 1 (deluxe and voyager). Only one I'm missing is Soundwave, being he was short packed. Pretty much every store here (Ocoee/Winter Garden) is completely wiped out. Maybe a straggling BB or 2, but the Prime toys flew off the shelves fast. I got lucky and found voyager Megatron the other day in a walmart in Apopka.

Double post!

So I went to my Walmart (Ocoee Commons, Colonial Drive [aka Highway 50]) and it looks like they just restocked. Had 2 each of Powerizer Optimus and Megatron, and had a handful each of Ratchet, Arcee and Soundwave (didn't count it specifically) and also had some Bumblebee and Wheeljack, but they aren't in short supply. Bought 1 of each of Soundwave, Ratchet and Arcee, but there are plenty more.

Totally Jealous - no changes at any of my stores (see my earlier post today), except one of my 2 Walmarts now has a 4 BB, 2 Cliffjumper, and 1 Wheeljack. This short-packing of other key characters (Soundwave, Arcee, Ratchet) is killing me :( Meanwhile, waves 2-3 will keep more BB coming on the shelf than we'll know what to do with. I'm praying for the day I can pickup Soundwave and Ratchet...

I didn't realize that Arcee, Ratchet and Soundwave were short packed in wave 2. Could really tell, there seemed to be plenty of them there. Maybe someone stocking the shelves is a transformers fan and picked out the 3 of them and stuck as many on the shelves as they could?

Unless the Prime Deluxe Series 02 orders on sites like TF Source and BBTS are wrong, the Series 2 comes with 3 BB, and 1 each of Wheeljack, Cliffjumper, Ratchet, Arcee, and Soundwave. I'd love to be wrong - it would give me a bit more hope I'll find Ratchet and Soundwave in my stores soon :)

Does anyone out there have a timeline on what RID figures are coming next?

I understand RID Deluxe Knock Out and Hot Shot are coming out soon, but my main interest is in Voyager Dreadwing's release date.

Also, any word on the RID Voyager Breakdown mold? Is it just overseas, or will Hasbro produce and distribute in the states?

I think Wave three is just Knockout, Vehicon and Hot Shot (for new figures). I don't think the release date for Dreadwing has been confirmed yet.

As for Breakdown, we have only ever seen him in prototype form, so I'm sure it will be a few waves before we get to him. Still have Voyager Bulkhead, Starscream and Dreadwing to get through.

So I'm apparently not intelligent enough to use the PM feature, as messages just sit in my Outbox (only used it like 2-3 times) :P Sabrblade, I managed to find/pick-up a Rescue Bots Boulder figure this evening at my local Target - I mentioned a couple months back if I found one, I'd let you know. If you're still interested, please let me know ;)

Sorry to do this in the forum everyone - and if anyone could explain why composing PMs and hitting the submit button leaves them sitting in the Outbox, I'd appreciate that as well.

Saw him once or twice. Didn't bother getting him since I'm not fond of that color scheme.

I've only seen him once as well, but I can check my Walmart's shelves this weekend for ya just in case. Most of the DOTM stuff is finally getting off the shelves in Gainesville - but I'll let you know if I find him.

No luck at my 2 Walmarts, a Target, or my K-Mart for Armor Top Spin.

Did finally manage to snag a Prime RiD Ratchet and Soundwave on Friday though from Toys R Us - they had just gotten a shipment put out before I arrived. Left 1 Arcee, a slew of BBs, and I think 2 Wheeljacks and 2 Cliffjumpers on the shelf. No sign of wave 3 RiD Deluxes or Wave 2 Voyagers (Bulkhead/Starscream or is that Wave 3?).

If any of you are keeping track of Rescue Bots, I just picked up Chase and the ever-so-hard-to-find Boulder at the Walmart on Goldenrod and Hoffner in Orlando. Not for me but for my two year old. Starting him up real early...
