Has anyone spotted the newest wave of movie toys anywhere around central Florida? I've been trying the find the new Bumblebee, Final Battle Jazz, Dropkick (I think he's supposed to be out at least), Longarm and Arcee with no luck.

First off~

Barricade, I love you. Very much. Thanks for living in Florida :D


Second, I'm gonna start keeping my eyes out for you all when I go to stores around here (I live in Deltona and freiquently make visits to the Orlando area) for special finds in stores.

I personally have wanted to see the new Arcee, I can't seem to find her anywhere.

I was lucky enough to buy the last Barricade about three or four weeks ago at the Target in DeLand, and my mother bought Bumblebee for my brother about six weeks ago (I didn't quite know how rare he was since I didn't care to look for him and my brother already had him)

So yes, I'll keep my eyes out and I'll continue to check back here to see what you all are looking for :D

I haven't seen anything yet, but I'm about to call TRU in Jacksonville

P.S. I'm gonna be in Jacksonville for the rest of this week and the next (till the 19th)

After that I'm gonna start checking the stores back home in Deltona!

Found!!! Ultimate Bumblebee @ Target

Postby bumble_bee_68 » Sat Aug 11, 2007 12:15 pm

Yep. It's mine. Awesome. Just bought one last night (Aug. 10th) for $76.31 :grin: Not too bad. I did a custom paint job on the bare gray robot parts showing. Looks much better now....OK...I get a discount b/c I work at Target...so....I get first, sometimes second dibs on ANY TF merchandise coming to the sales floor. Sometimes it comes out after the store closes, or mid-day, when they push toys. I will post any new TF stuff on the TF sightings post for information...

That sucks D:

I'm still waiting on a deluxe 08 BB. I want him to go with my deluxe barricade, so that when I play Pretty Handsome Awkward I can drive them around like a happy little fangirl.

I found Ultimate Bumblebee in the Titusville Wal-Mart the other night. Nothing else new though, in fact all they had were like 2 protoform Optimus's, a few FABs, about 2 voyager Ratchets, and some Real Gears. Absolutely no Deluxes. :-(

Yeah, in the movie, the song that is played when BB is being chased by Barricade is called Pretty Handsome Awkard by The Used :D

Oh, and I just got one today from Kohls in Jacksonville off of Atlantic! I just about died, there were THREE of them O_O

There was also a little tiny Barricade figure (it says its from Series 7 or something) that I just adore! I wish I could figure out what line it's from X:

I saw an Ultimate BB at Walmart in Jacksonville off of San Jose yesterday, and every other place I check now has just a bunch of those Real Gears and a TON of movie preview protoform Starscreams.

I'm sure that we will start seeing more things soon X:

I sure hope you're right about that. I'm so sick of every store having the same thing...which is nothing. I mean I've been everywhere around central Florida (and wasted a lot of gas)looking for the Deluxes and they are just no-shows.

Well, if there is something in particular that you are looking for, let me know and I'll see if I can't dig one up from here in Jacksonville.

I will be up here till the end of the week, and then I'll be back in Central Florida checking around the Daytona area!

You tease me! I really want him in my little army of transformers D:

I only have the deluxe barricade and the little barricade (I'm still not sure what line he is from yet). I would like to get the movie replicas barricade still XD

If they made a Titanium one of him that would be sweet!
