The WM on 50 in Ocoee has 1 Vehicon, 2 Prime Kup and a Rumble.

The WM south of 50 on 27 in Clermont also had a Vehicon.
Looking for the Megatron gun (or just the stock) that came with 20th anniversary MP Optimus Prime.

The TRU on OBT in Orlando has the deluxe, legend and commander (or whatever theyre calling the two sizes smaller then deluxe now) of the GDO stuff in stock. Im only interested in the deluxe sized and up so I dont know if they had a full selection of the smaller guys on the pegs (although they looked to have a healthy selection) but after the 4 deluxes I picked up they still had at least 1 of each deluxe on the peg.

Oh and they also had NINE MP Thunder Cracker on the shelf.

My local Gainesville TRU has all four of the Generations Deluxe China GDO figures in 3-4+ each: Swerve, Cliffjumper, Springer, and Wheelie. 1 of the new MP Prime figures was on the shelf, and about 6-7 Masterpiece Skywarps. 1 TF Prime Voyager Dreadwing was there as well, but someone had popped off both of the shoulder pieces, and I couldn't tell if they were in the box or not :(

I managed to score 1 lone TF Prime Sergeant Kup at my local Target this past Wednesday, the first time I've seen any of that wave hit our local shelves. And before I forget, the average TF Prime Deluxe Bumblebee per store is about 6 :(

I just went hunting or the first time in a while and found out that Fort Myers is absolutely stocked with FoC Shockwaves. I went to the Walmart on Six Mile Cyprus and Colonial Blvd and there were about five or six sitting on the pegs, Seven or so Optimus Primes and about five of Jazz. I also went to the Walmart in Cape Coral on rt 41 this past weekend and seen four or five Shockwaves, Optimus Primes, a few Jazzes, ONE Vortex and ONE Brawl.

That was just the two Walmarts I went to. I didn't go to the other Walmart on Six Mile and 41 nor did I go to any Targets or the one Toys R Us here so there could be many more around here if you guys are willing to travel.

Those weren't what I was hunting for though, I hit up a City Trends, Dollar General, Big Lots, Walgreens, Bealls Outlet and regualar Bealls. I found some interesting Transforming toys in a few of those stores. There was an oversized ko multicolored Universe micromaster Devastator (damn that was a long description) in the Bealls outlet along with one of those ko undersized Super Sentai Megazords ("Icarus" I think, it's the one in three sizes from kotoys.com). The regular Bealls next door to the outlet only had an Ironman 2 crossovers Ironman Hummer, the Captain America retool. It was marked as $25 but was then in the 50% off section with an additional 15% off if you're over 50 years old.

I also found some oversized ko RotF legends class figures (Dustorm, Jetfire, Starscream and Blackout) along with two universe/generations legends Bumblebee, a RtS Starscream with the new null rays from Generations Thundercracker and a RtS Optimus Prime with Motorbreaths sword at the Big Lots. There was a g2 legends Megatron but I bought that. A repaint of Cybertron Backstop and a regular Wreckloose along with the DotM Cyberverse Shockwave with fusion tank were on the shelves. There was also a few other transforming toys here that were kind of interesting.

My score today though was the legends class G2 Megatron, a Dotm Darksteel, a RtS Mindset and a Human Alliance Half-Track with Major Altitude. I'm a little behind on my transformers so that was a great haul to me lol.

If anyone's looking for Dark of the Moon deluxes then head to family dollar. The normal asking price for them is $5 but they're HALF PRICE at the moment. They're also selling minicons for $3.50 each normally. My mom also picked me up for Christmas, three cyberverse legion figures from one of the family dollars but I didn't see any in either store. Both stores I checked had the same deluxes being: Thundercracker (rarest), Darksteel, Air Raid, Cyberfire Bumblebee, Nitro Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Barricade, Specialist Rachet, Armor Topspin, Laserbeak and Mudflap. The cyberverse figures were: Topspin, Crankcase and Skids. The minicons were: Pan-Handler, Drivetrain, Break-Neck and Swashplate. They even had a bunch of bot shots for $5 with 50% off. If you don't have any of these figures yet here's you chance to get them for dirt cheap.

The Fort Myers Toys r us has plenty of Prime RiD figures and I seen all deluxes and voyages except Vehicon and Rumble but I seen everyone else at one time this past week. They also had several Optimus Maximus, a few Bumblebee mech suit things and a few energon drillers. They also have ONE first edition Bulkhead and Starscream left. Four WfC Soudwaves, a legion of minions, a hand full of Silverstreaks and Hoists, two of Sandstorm and Laserbeak and one voyager Megatron were also hanging around on the shelves. Not to mention the horde of masterpiece Thundercrackers that should be going on clearance soon as there are a TON of them. Also, they had Star Wars on sale for buy one get one 75% off. That included the crossover figures and they're currently selling the Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker Star Destroyer/Republic attack cruiser for only $20 and still counted for the bogo sale.

If you don't mind paying full price with no sales ever then try Walgreens for those hard to find figures, mine has both Vehicon and Rumble on the pegs. I also finally got around to checking out the TJ Max in my area and found they have quite a few DotM and crossovers there. The DotM deluxes are cheaper in Family Dollar but they are here for cheap too as well as the Darth Vader/Star destroyer AND a good amount of human alliance Mudflaps, Roadbusters and leader class Ironhides, Sentinel Primes and Bumblebees.

The Wal-Mart in Ormond Beach had a case of the Transformers Prime beast hunter voyagers. I watched ask the employee opened the box. I saw at least two Predakings and there was two more of something else.

I noticed in Target in Clearwater, FL the price for Beast Hunters Deluxe went down to 12.99. Is it like that everywhere else?

Never saw him at anyplace, ever.

The Only PRID Voyager that's ever seen still on the shelves my in stores these days is Thundertron. And maybe Starscream or Optimus.
