Went to Buford Wal Mart, Target, and TRU after work today, as usual. Finally got lucky at Wal Mart, I found Commanders Ironhide and Ultra Magnus. Sorry for anybody still looking for those, but I snagged the only ones. BUT that means there's one less person looking for any more that pop up. TRU had been picked clean of all the new figs I saw the other week, there were just a bunch of Bees, maybe one Dead End or Shadow Strike Bee, and two FOC Optimus Primes. So I guess there's that. Target had the same 9 Bumblebees they've had forever, AND out of nowhere a Generations Kup. On the plus side, I ran into another guy hunting for toys. We bumped into each other at both TRU and Target. He was looking for Marvel Legends, but we briefly shared horror stories of our respective hunts before parting ways. I went to the Suwannee Wal Mart (west of I85 on L'ville-Suwannee) and realized they still had Prime deluxes for $12.88, and they had one each of Dead End and Shadow Strike Bee, plus the usual assortment of other wave 1 stuff. I bought Dead End and I'm currently in love with him and my Cyberverse guys.

tl;dr Buford TRU has Generations FOC on shelves, wave 4 deluxes are everywhere but in small numbers, likewise for Commander waves 2 and 3.

Was at every location in the Mall of GA area today. Ross, Marshals, and TJ Maxx had the usual. TRU I picked up the last Dreadwing and Ironhide commanders. No new Deluxe or Voyager. Target had same stuff, but did see Bulkhead commander. Walmart had nothing new. Suwannee walmart and hamilton mill walmarts were pretty bare.I'll most likely have all of the cyberverse collected before any good deluxe/voyager are spotted, and I dont even collect the cyberverse :-(

You should, they're pretty fun for their size. I love the little guys.

So I did the rounds today. TRU near Gwinnett Place had more red and yellow than I've seen in one place in a long time. NOTHING else TF Prime Deluxe. They had 2 FOC Optimuses, also. Super Target in the same area had just Bumblebees. Lots of them. On the north end, Buford TRU had just red and yellow, and two Jazzes along with their two Optimuses from FOC. Buford Target had the same 9 Bumblebees they've had for a month. Buford Wal Mart had just pegs and pegs of the Bee. Suwanee Wal Mart had the same deluxes I left them with last week: 1 Shadow Strike Bee, 1 Cliffjumper. After the promising findings and near-misses from previous weeks, I'm utterly fed up at these piss-poor selections and will be ordering the figures I want online in a bid to save my sanity.

Yeah I agree. We patrol about the same area. It gets frustrating and seems endless. I know next month we will have another wave shipped out with a new figure. Hopefully we get some good news then, otherwise idk what to do at that point.

Did my rounds today. Nothing new around Mall of GA and Hamilton Mill areas at all. Giving up looking and wasting gas at this point.

Did my rounds again today. Nothing new @ TRU or Walmart. Target on the otherhand is in the middle of a toy reset. They now have the weaponizers and also saw optimus maximus cyberverse playset.

Pretty much what he said. I checked two Targets and two Wal Marts today, found Weaponizers, RC vehicles, and new Bot Shots stuff at both Targets. At the second (L'ville-Suwanee) I found Optimus Maximus and the Generations FOC bots. They had one Shockwave left, and I snagged him.

Toys R Us had 1 FoC prime but that was it. Everything else with the exception of Target was same old stuff. Was nice to see something different besides the 20 BBs.

Forgot to clarify that they I only found the good stuff at Target. Neither Wal Mart had anything new to show. I'm grateful that Snellville Wal Mart has some diversity (all the significant figures from waves 3 and 4 except the shortpacked figs), but I have everything they've got and I don't plan on army building Knock Out or Dead End or Bumbleplague. Also, Wal Mart now has the HIGHEST deluxe prices, at $15.57 for Primes. Never thought TRU prices would be cheaper! Target, of course, now has all theirs for $14.99. I don't like it a whole lot, but I can mentally justify it for characters I like. And this is my first Shockwave toy from any series, so no complaints, except that maybe the alt mode isn't much of anything, but that's kind of normal for Shockwaves.

Yeah, that's what I found too. I didn't bother reporting, for that reason. Snelville Target has Generations FOC in, all 3 of them. Snelville and Lawrenceville (L'ville-Suwanee and Sugarloaf) Wal Marts are the same as usual. Lawrenceville Target, nothing much to report. I might check Duluth (Gwinnett Place area) on Saturday, we'll see.

I'll stop looking once I find my damn Vehicon and Airachnid. Or when I'm dead. Whichever comes first. *sigh* I really should stop, because I so rarely find anything new. But I keep crossing my fingers that this time, there will be at least ONE [x] and all hope is not lost. I need to just reel in my anxiety and wait until confirmed sightings of wave 4 revision and beyond. Plus Voyager wave 3 is overdue, at this point.

Looks like Toys R Us and Walmart are setting up for their fall toy resets. They actually look arranged and organized for a change. No sightings of new figs though.

Checked Snelville Target and Lawrenceville Target today, just in case. Nothing new. Well, the Weaponizers are only a few weeks old at this point, but other than that....
(I really should pick one up, but I've decided to hold off on new purchases until I find Vehicon, Airachnid, or wave 5)
I'm taking the hunting way down until new stuff is sighted. Keep me posted, guys!

Walmart in Albany has 3 TFP Optimus Maximus, 3 TFP Weaponizer Optimus on the shelf, as well as several of each Wave 1 FoC figures. There are also a **** ton of TFP and DotM Cyberverse figures.
