The cyberverse sets were still there. And to be honest I forgot to look for the new cyberverse commanders. That's what happens when I have a million things on my mind. Target has been really bare boned for a while, which is kind of a surprise.

Yeah, I found a couple Deadends and SF BBs today at walmart in Peachtree city. Airachnia was already gone.

Went toy TRU in Fayetteville...they had 15 bumblebees of course and nothing special...like MP Thundercracker for instance :P

Can't wait for MPTC....UGH!

Yeah I know the feeling. Will be nice to have all 3 main seekers in their MP form. I wonder when FoC/Generations waves will start hitting stores? Should be soon as the game releases next month.

Went to the Target in Lawrenceville this morning. They didn't have them on the shelf, but they do have the new FOC deluxes. A case is 3 Optimus Primes, 3 Jazz, and 2 Shockwaves. I grabbed 1 Jazz and 1 Shockwave, the OP boxes were damaged.

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll buzz over there ASAP and see if I can snag that other Shockwave.

That Target, as reported, didn't have them on shelves, when I checked the price scanner it listed them as being in the stockroom. There was nobody around I could ask to pull them out and I'm kind of glad, I saved myself $30 that I need to hold onto for a little bit. Other than that, stores seem to be getting a bit more diverse with Prime, yellow is being broken up a bit more. Though the Wal Mart near 316 in Lawrenceville had a scarce Prime selection and about a dozen DOTM Primes clogging the pegs instead.

Did some looking around on my way home from work today.
Snellville Target: Apparently they just outright skipped wave 3. They had Bumblebees, Shadow Strike Bumblebees, and Dead Ends in droves, but no Hot Shot, Vehicon, or Airachnid at all.

Snellville Wal Mart: Until the Buford TRU got them, this was the ONLY place I had seen wave 3 anywhere in Gwinnett County. They had a sampling of all waves 1-4, but no Vehicons or Airachnids still. Plenty of black, yellow, and green.

Lawrenceville Wal Mart (on Sugarloaf and L'Ville-Suwannee): Nothing but Prime Bumblebee (yellow) and DOTM exclusive Optimus Prime in the Deluxe category.

So wave 4 has hit, but Airachnid is apparently a hot commodity, despite being hideous. Vehicon remains elusive. At least the playsets are EVERYWHERE now.

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 :-(

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.
