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.

Unfortunately it is what it is. I don't like it either, but its a reality we must live with.

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!

I've started seeing Legion wave 3 hit. I've spotted all 3 new figures (all repaints), bought none. Mostly at Wal Marts. If you're interested, check there first.

Only newer figures I found today while making my rounds was 3 Deadends @ Mall of GA Walmart. Target and TRU were pretty scarce with just the usual BBs and cliffjumpers.

Checked Snelville Target and the 2 Wal Marts on the way back from work. Legion wave 3 has hit everywhere, Commander waves 2 and 3 are finally everywhere. Target has Cyberverse Vehicles back down at $19.99, where it was $28 a week ago and "Discounted" to $19.99 a few days back. Wal Mart still has them for $21.99. Snelville Target had a fresh case of wave 2 voyagers out. All 4. First time I've seen Starscream in months. Nothing else mainline to report, except that FOC Shockwave isn't being scalped as much as originally feared. Oh, and Wal Mart is still resetting. No sign of Kreon blindpacks anywhere.

I picked up an Energon Driller today. WOW, this thing is awesome for what it is. $20 well-spent.

Did my usual rounds of the Buford area today. Looks like Bot Shot Launchers wave 2 are in. I don't know if the singles or three-packs have new stuff because I don't follow bot shots, but the launchers at least are few enough in number that I can sort of keep tabs on them. Nothing else new at Target or Wal Mart, but Toys R Us had all kinds of new Kre-O stuff in, including the Kreon Microchangers preview wave. I got 4 of them, which turned out to be Galvatron, Scorponok, Waspinator, and Sunstorm. Exactly the 4 that I wanted! Does anybody know if the numbers on the packaging indicate who's inside? I deliberately chose 4 different numbers, but it may have been coincidence. Scorps was 21511 1, Waspinator 21511 2, Galvatron ditto 8, and Sunstrom ditto 9.

Found TFP Cyberverse Autobot Tailgate and Fallback @ Mall of GA Walmart. Everything else was bare or had the same old. Saw lots of FOC wave 1, so looks like we will see very little of wave 2.

I found Skyquake and Battle Tactics Bulkhead at the Snelville Wal Mart on Monday. Snagged Skyquake. I've also seen everybody from Legion waves 3 and 4 at various stores in the Gwinnett area, though I haven't gotten any.
