Located both Generations Cosmos and Swerve at Barrett Parkway TRU in Kennesaw today. Plenty were still on the pegs so it looks like at least initially they should be as plentiful as the others were.

Have to say, I'm quite happy with these 2 little guys. $20 bucks well spent :APPLAUSE:

Walmart on Highway 41 in Marietta near the Big Chicken has started putting out AOE stuff. This morning they had 1 of each leader, 1 of each voyager and the "power-punch" smaller figures, no deluxes.

The re-release Masterpiece Grimlock has been spotted in Ok, Tx, and a few other states. They are saying that the product code is 500256. For some reason, I cannot pull this up on the Tru website. So I called the Fayetteville store and also the Lenox store. Neither of the associates could find the product code in their database. And when they did a search by name "Masterpiece Grimlock" they said they can't find it.

Not sure what the deal is, but I have seen at least 15 different people get him for 60 bucks on the boards.

Can y'all please keep your eyes peeled? At 60 bucks a pop, he won't last long.

Thanks!

I found the Evolution Duo Deluxe Strafe at the TRU at Cumberland today. There were 3 left and he rang up for $14.99. No sign of MP Grimlock though. I've been looking all over my home and work areas for him with no luck. Hopefully he'll show up soon enough!

Yeah, I'm hoping tomorrow we will start seeing the reissue Grimlocks. Many of our TRUs get the trucks in on Thursdays (Fayetteville and I am told Lenox too) I'm heading to Fayetteville tomorrow afternoon. Will post if I find anything. If they have them, you can call in and have them hold one for you until you come pick it up, but they only hold it until they close that day.

Also, check your mail. I got a TRU 20% off one regular item coupon last Saturday. Pretty nifty if we can find him tomorrow.

Hoping I can find Masterpiece Grimlock as well. Something is going on with his listing in the TRU database as he does not come up under Masterpiece or Grimlock. There was a link posted on the board somewhere to him on the TRU website but he was $79.99 instead of $59.99. Hopefully that doesn't mean a price increase in stores.

On a side note I did find the Funko Pop Optimus and Bumblebee from the new movie in Barett TRU Kennesaw.

I got held up at work and I didn't make it out to Fayetteville. But my brother stopped by North Lake TRU and they had one Grimlock left on the shelf and in spider wrap and yes, priced at 79.99. So I shot him a pic of my coupon and let him have it. Price came out to 68.47. I have a Grimlock from the original release and wanted another to display in Alt T-Rex mode but I'm not so sure anymore for 80 bucks.

He may stop by Lavista tomorrow just to check. Will advise if he sees any more.

I was afraid the $79.99 price was true. It's still not a bad price but not as good. The 20% off of $60 would have been :michaelbay:

I found AOE Deluxe Wave 2 at the Target at the Prado in Sandy Springs this morning. They had Strafe and Drift. I picked up Drift only since I got the Evo Strafe at TRU already. No Slash though but these are out in GA now!

From time to time I will post to the board of Transformer themed custom shirts available through teefury.com. Today they are offering 2 different shirts and they are pretty unique! They are the faction symbols transformed and are available today only for 11 dollars. Just thought I would share.

Was about to breakdown and order Generations Skrapnel and Tailgate online but thought I would hunt around first. Low and behold found them at Barrett Pkwy Target in Kennesaw. They were also on some weird 5% of sale. Basically covered the tax.

I'm looking for Sunstorm. I'm not looking for Prowl because I have the Takara one. If the US release is as good, he is definitely worth getting! Going to look around this weekend. Will keep the board posted!

Saw the sticker for Sunstorm at the Barrett Toys R Us for the price of $79.99. At that price I did not even check to see if he was available at the desk. really wish other stores with start getting involved in masterpiece figures again.

I'm with ya. I remember getting my MP-01 25th anniversary Prime at Walmart. I got my MP Skywarp on Clearance there too! I'm not a fan of TRU over their Jacked up prices. Though I have found a few stores that have been helpful, I really try to take advantage of their coupons when I can. I am hoping to get one soon in the mail and snag a Sunstorm with it!

Thanks GreatMagnus for the heads up. Glad to know they are hitting Ga!

Those were my first 2 as well. I will probably never be a full run collector of the MP line as I mainly stick to the most significant characters like Prime. If Magnus hit US I might bend on him. 2 fresh Sunstorms on the shelf at Cumberland TRU.

Thanks for the update! It's getting expensive being an MP collector. I don't have much shame in admitting that, in order for me to continue, I have turned to the knock offs on some. I bought Sideswipe and Prowl from Takara, but I bought sun streaker, red alert, and smoke screen knock offs. I did this after I learned that they actually are Takara factory rejects. The flaws are minimal. At 35 dollars free shipping, it's an absolute deal! I can't afford to buy a different color / retooled mold of what I already have for 75-85 bucks a pop.

I just went out to Target in Peachtree City on my lunch break and saw Sky Byte and Roadbuster. On the fence about SB but I will pick up RB for my Wreckers display. I see that they are continuing to provide a sticker sheet....I'm fine with that so long as they keep the cost down on voyagers.

Also, in the event that any of you are collecting the Starwars 6" black series, Target is starting to get in the Biker Scouts w/ bike and also Jabba. The Scouts with bikes are very impressive ( better be for 40 bucks) and are highly detailed. Need to watch out for bad paint apps on the mask though. Of the 4 I have seen, 3 of them here sloppy. Jabba is a pass for me. Looks cool, but 40 dollars for a slug with 3 points of articulation is not enticing.

I PM'd you. A lot of collectors get their panties in a bunch about how other collectors spend their money and blah blah blah.... And I think these boards have some rules about links and I don't feel like referencing them...

Krikwood Shopping Center Target (Atlanta) has about 7 Whirl Figures, and Some Rescue Bots Optimus Primals, and AOE Exclusive Silver Optimus Prime and Grimlock Two Packs.

The Walmart off of Gresham Rd (Decatur) is about to do a reset on there toy isles, so there might be something to look forward to.
