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...

I finally found a Boulder - the last one - at the Target in Maitland.

Nice! It's funny, because I was just there last week and saw 2 there. Great pick up!

Found Boulder at my walmart the other day.

And what's this about someone looking for Topspin? I believe I saw one the other day at my Walmart.

Any lock on finding the series 2 bot shots or PRID Starscream and Bulkhead?

No sign of either Wave 3 of PRID Deluxes (Knock Out, Vehicon, HotShot, etc.) or the PRID Voyagers Bulkhead/StarScream in Gainesville yet.

After striking out a couple times this week at Target and Toys R Us, I managed to come across Hot Shot in one of my 2 Walmarts in Gainesville just now. No sign of Knock Out or the Vehicon, but there we also 8 Bees, 2 Cliffjumpers, and 1 each of Wheeljack, Ratchet, and Arcee. No Voyager Bulkhead or StarScream, and no more stock in the back according to their scanners.

Anyone else had any Wave 3 Deluxe or any of the new Voyager sightings in Florida?

Just snagged 1 each TFP Deluxe Vehicon and Knock Out at my closest WalMart :) Left 9 BB, 3 Cliffjumpers, 2 Ratchets, 1 Arcee, 2 Hot Shots, and 1 Knockout on the shelf. No new Voyagers - 4 Prime and 1 Megatron on the shelf, and no more in the back according to their scanners. My Target is still nursing the same 8 BB and 2 Cliffjumpers it's had on the shelf for 2 weeks now. 3 Prime and 2 Megatron Voyagers were also on Target's shelf. No new sign of the newer Cyber Commander figures yet either.

Just saw TFP Voyager Bulkhead at one of the local TRU in Orlando. Didn't pick it up since I already have the Takara FE. Still on the look out for KO and Vehicon...

Finally picked up TFP Knock Out and Vehicon at Walmart, Daytona Beach. Left 1 Knockout and 2 Hotshots. Also saw Cyberverse Dreadwing at TRU Orlando but I had to leave it. Holding out on the Voyager version...

Maybe someone has answered this question already, so forgive the repost. What's up with the missing faction symbols for TFPRIME RID? I've only seen the symbols on ALL TFP FE and select RID figures (I.e. voyagers and one other - Vehicon). Just asking out of curiosity.

If anyone's still looking for the the DOTM deluxes of Dark Steel, Air Raid, Specialist Ratchet, and/or Armor Topspin, the Wal-Mart on N. Dale Mabry Hwy. directly south of the intersection with Waters Ave. in Tampa has all four.

I found a Voyager Starscream at the Walmart on Semoran by the airport yesterday, and a few Hot Spot's in the Walmarts off Maitland Blvd west of I-4. Also picked up the last Knockout from those two stores. As of a few hours ago, each of those two Walmarts each had a Hotshot, and one had a Bulkhead.

After a long dry spell, I found the following at my local Wal Mart: 3 Shadow-Strike BBs, 1 Knockout, and 1 Dead End - no sign of Airachnid. 2 Energon Driller w/Knockout and 2 Star Hammer w/Wheeljack playsets were also available. Managed to snag the only Voyager Bulkhead at TRU as well.

Sounds about what I found the other day. 1 Ratchet, 1 Knockout, 1 Deadend, 2 Shadow-Strike BB. 2 of each cyberverse playset also.

The TRU at 101 Town Center Blvd. up in Sanford/Lake Mary has one Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime and one Jazz left… I just picked up a Jazz and (the last) Shockwave there. They're actually right on the endcap to the left of the main display… I almost missed them.

Found a small sampling of Fall of Cybertron Optimus (3 left) and Jazz (snagged the last one) at my Gainesville TRU. No sign of Shockwave. They were $14.99. Nothing new at Target or Walmart - their stock seems to be getting low again.

So after what's been an eternity, my Target has reset their toy aisle a bit, and new figures have appeared! Fall of Cybertron Deluxe Wave 1 (3 Optimus, 2 Jazz), TF Prime RID Deluxe Shadow-Strike Bumblebee. The Optimus Maximus playset thing was also available, as were both TF Prime Weaponizers Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. I passed on all of them for now - still trying to find a FoC Shockwave ;)
