I was at the TRU on Cobb Parkway near Cumberland Mall today and had my first sighting of FOC Voyager Soundwave. He was on the large shelf behind a DOTM Voyager Sentinel Prime. I didn't get him because he's sitting in my POL on BBTS but TRU's price of $22.99 is not bad. Still no sign of TFP Beast Hunter voyagers but they had 3 Laserbacks, 1 Bumblebee and 1 Soundwave (deluxes). Hopefully this means FOC Grimlock is not too far behind!

My brother is looking for FE Bulkhead, can someone in the Atlanta area please keep an eye out and let me know if you see one?

Also, in regards to Skyquake voyager, will he be released to US retail? I am not certain he will be based on what I've read. I do know that he can be purchased in a 3 pack or 4 pack off BBTS...but I have no interest in any other voyagers at the moment.

Thanks in advance!

Skyquake is in the Wave 4 revision case, which is probably not seeing a lot of distribution because he's at the tail end of the PRID line, which is over. Retailers generally don't buy many of the last wave of lines because they're waiting to put out the new stuff from the next line, and he's only 1 to a case with Magnus, Thundertron, and Starscream, so he'll be hard to find. He IS out though, there have been some sightings of him. We'll try to keep you posted.

Just spotted and picked up Beast Hunters Wheeljack and Soundwave at the TRU in Savannah. I can't seem to add it on the Sightings page so I figured I'd share it here with fellow Georgians. After my roommate and I grabbed ours, there are 3 Soundswave and 1 Wheeljack left. Also spotted 2 FOC Soundwave there as well and the 5 pack Autobot Polar Assault team and Stunticon Bot Shot sets, 1 Autobot and 3 Stunticon.

So made my usual rounds around Buford/Hamilton Mill today. Everything had been a bust up until I got to Wal-Mart. I found Beast Hunters cyberverse Optimus, Predaking, and Bulkhead. They are pretty cool little guys, but the price is too high on them. Only other finding was TFP cyberverse Knockout with the Energon driller @ TJ Maxx. Otherwise nothing else to report.

Target in Canton has the new BH cyberverse vehicles that include Smokescreen and Breakdown. They also had wave 1 of BH deluxes. First time I'd seen the vehicles.

In Peachtree City...Walmart has BH cyberverse...and Target has FOC Soundwave Voyagers and BH deluxes.

Newnan Target didnt have squat and the TJ Maxx just down from it had a Deluxe Sgt Kupp for 6 dolla.

I passed on everything today. I have no interest thus far for BH which is a blessing because my Geminus and Apex came in to BBTS today... and my pile of loot is out of f#*king control. Bragging rights though....I recieved my Takara soundwave this week and also my FP Code (not- Chromedome). Will be taking them to atlanta this weekend to my brothers house so we enjoy them :)

Anxious to get a Grimlock though!

Spotted 4 FOC Grimlock and 1 Blaster at Hinesville, GA Wal-Mart. Took one of the Grimlocks for a friend's birthday present. Other than that, there was absolutely nothing on the racks.

I hear that, dalglb66. Hinesville, GA Wal-Mart sprang to life and had BH Wheeljack, Bumblebee, Soundwave and Laserback. Grabbed 2 Bees and 1 Laserback. Savannah TRU had those as well as Predaking. I found the Predaking and Bruticus Kre-O sets there, they had 2 of each grabbed one of each. Savannah Target had barely anything but they did have 2 BH Optimus and Predaking, friend grabbed an Optimus.

Didn't see much new out around the Mall of GA area today. I did find both BH cyberverse play-sets at TRU, the one with Smokescreen and the other with Breakdown. Found the BH cyberverse legions at Mall of GA Walmart. And the biggest heart breaker for me today. I was at the Hamilton Mill Walmart and saw Blaster on the shelf. Got super excited and thought that maybe a Grimlock was behind him, but after detailed scouting I found nothing. Was disappointed by that, but I did get Blaster so it was a good day.

Went to TRU on Saturday after work. First time in a while. No Grimlock or Blaster, no BH wave 2, still two GDO Swerves eating space, still 6 RID Starscreams and a Dreadwing warming the shelf. And lots of Optimus Maximi. I don't remember if they had any of the new Bot/Flip/Jump/Spin Shots, except the Dragon Track. Not much else to report. I did finally pick up a BH Prime at the Lawrenceville Target yesterday, as well. He's fun.

FOC Blaster and Grimlock are back at both the Canton Walmart and Target. BH cyberverse legion still not up here though.

I'm starting a new job in Marietta next week so I'll have a whole new area of stores to hit

I found Cyberverse Legion Twinstrike today at the TRU near Cumberland Mall. He's definitely a great little figure and looks great with the rest of the Predacons.

Also, there's a facebook TRU coupon for 20% off one item, but it's only good until March 9th. So, I was able to get him for less than $6! :grin: I highly recommend taking advantage of this offer! Nothing else of note at that TRU though and I think got the last one, but I only checked one row of the legion class figures.

Had a really good haul today. I found 3 FOC Grimlocks at Mall of GA Walmart, but I already have him. I did however at the same location find the legends cassettes wave 2. They had several each of Ramhorn/Eject and Rewind/Sundor. At Mall of GA Target I found BH deluxe Bulkhead and Starscream. Not much to report outside of that. I did check Marshals, Ross, and TJmaxx in hopes of finding the discounted FOC voyager figures that had spotted a few days ago, but no signs of them at all.

I was just at the Target on Cobb Parkway in Smyrna. They had the entire 2nd Wave of TFP Beast Hunters deluxes. There were 2 Smokescreens, 1 Bulkhead, 1 Starscream and 1 Ripclaw. They're selling them for $15.59 which isn't too bad considering the online prices. There were also 3 FOC Voyager Soundwaves as well. Good to know these are starting to show up here in metro Atlanta! :D
