BIG NEWS!

Just recieved a text from my brother with a pic of 5 boxes (2 per box so 10 in stock) of MP Primes from the Tucker TRU. He said that each box even had a TRU made label with the 119.99 price on them. He said that they had none on the shelf so when you get there, ask them to pull them down.

I went to the Fayetteville TRU and found that they had 6 MP primes out on the shelf. They also had FE Starscream, Asian Generation Cliffjumper, and some asian scouts.

I also went to Aldi (in case you didnt know, they have all Deluxe Transformers for 9.99) and they had Ratchet, Vehicon, WheelJack, Fruity WheelJack (Deadend),and Knockout.

All transformers mentioned in this post were there tonight and left. The only one I took home was FE Arcee ;).

Went to Buford TRU today, found a boatload of MP Thundercrackers hogging all the shelf space, 3 pegs of DOTM crap, the usual lack of anything good in Prime deluxe, a lone FE Terrorcon Cliffy, 2 Asia Voyager Megatrons, and an Asian Voyager Powerdive.

Went to Duluth TRU out by Gwinnett Place and they didn't have a single TF on their shelves more recent than August. No MPs, no FE, no Asian Generations. Don't waste your gas going out here.

Went to Duluth Aldi, following up on the news report of finding Vehicons there, just a few Dead Ends and Knock Out.

Went to Lawrenceville Aldi. JACKPOT.

4 boxes of Prime figures, most of them Vehicons. I think I snagged the only Airachnid though. So if you're Vehicon hunting, come to Aldi on Duluth Highway. It's beside the Mr. Clean Carwash and it's on the stretch between Riverside Parkway and Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.

Thank you so much for the information! I've been having lots of frustration and trouble with my TRU preorder, so I decided to give the Tucker store a shot. Just like you reported, there were 5 unopened boxes of MP Optimus but none on the shelf.

The sales rep got a fresh box down and I took my MP OP to customer service to see if they would match the online preorder price. The CS rep said that she could as long as I had a physical printout for her to verify the price. I have been carrying around a printout of my preorder email for the last week or so and thus she matched the price!

So, I was actually able to get him for cheaper because tax is a little less than online for a final price of $106.99! I only bought one so there should be one somewhere on the shelves and 4 cases directly above the TF section at the Tucker TRU.

I had my first nerdgasm for the first time in a long, long while today. =P~ Aldi was loaded with Hot Shots, Knock Outs, Ratchets, and yes Airachid and TONS OF VEHICONS. If you guys need any, hit them up while they are still $9.99. I feel like its 2007 again, well price wise anyway. If you have any issues finding any, hit me up. The store I went to just had grand opening and is packed out with product.

You are definately welcome and glad to be of help! Also glad they honored your original price instead of having to fork over the 120.00.

Went to Aldi yesterday and picked up another Vehicon for the ranks. On my way home from work I stopped by the Snelville Target, Snelville Wal Mart, Lawrenceville Wal Mart (on Sugarloaf and L'ville-Suwanee), and Lawrenceville Target. At Snelville Target, I found ALL FIVE MEMBERS OF BRUTICUS. Didn't buy any, since I ultimately plan to get the BBTS G2 version. At Snelville Wal Mart, I found Dreadwing and snapped him up. Nothing notable to report at either of the other locations. Happy hunting, all!

Was out and about at the Mall of GA area today. Nothing at TRU, Target, or Walmart. Went to Aldi in Snellville, they are pretty cleaned out except Hot Shot, Ratchet, and Knockout. Snellville Target I grabbed Vortex, Brawl, and Blastoff the last of each. No sign of Swindle or Onslaught.

Maybe someone else saw my post and snapped up Swindle and Onslaught before you. My condolences. Also never checked Snelville Aldi. Have you been to the one in Lawrenceville yet?

Its ok, no worries. I'll find them eventually. But the 3 of them with tax cost me pennies shy of $50. I didn't go to the Lawrenceville Aldi, but the one I did go to I hit the jackpot. Vehicons, Hot Shots, Knockouts, and Airachnids galore.

Anyone close to Griffin? Friend of mine lives out there and he knows Im Xmas shopping and having difficulty with some of these figures. Im really looking to get into this Aldi sale if its still going on.

Anyone willing to grab some up if theyre still on sale and hold on to them until I can pay? I bought 2 Vehicons off a guy here and think I may have been scammed. :(
Wanted: Jack, Miko and Raf from FE Pack, AM Breakdown, any good Blackarachnia, any affordable MPs especially Grimlock (I can dream)

Went to the Target on Bradley Park Dr in Columbus, Ga.

All 5 FoC Combaticons, unfortunately one of each. A restock of TF:Prime figures. 3 Vehicons, 1 sergeant Kup, 1 Rumble, well there was 2, but I bought one, 2 Thundertrons, and 1 Ultra Magnus.

Hi all,
Went to TRU tucker today to get an MP Prime. They still have 5 cases as of today. Target on Holcomb Bridge rd in Roswell east of 400 had one Thundertron and one Ultra Magnus. I didn't buy either since I just forked out $128 for Mp Prime :-(
Also Aldi in Roswell at Mansell and Holcomb Bridge had Plenty of Vehicons and a few Airachnids about 2 weeks ago. Don't know if they still have any.

Well, I derped and forgot to check Target in Columbus. However, I stopped by Aldi on Highway 20 and they still had about 5 Vehicons and some other stuff in. Apparently at least one guy came in and bought an entire case of figures, the cashier told me. Supplies are thinning out so get your Vehicons before it's too late.

I didn't go to the store on Hwy 20, but I did happen to snag a whole case of figures. They have been so hard to find and I couldn't pass up that price, it was too good to pass up.

I don't blame you, dude. Especially if you haven't gotten any of those other figures, this case is just amazing. It's like half of a collection in one go, with the only dupe being an army builder.

Yeah thats what I did, Grabbed Airachnid, Hot Shot, Knockout, and the rest were Vehicon.

While out and about today, didn't come across much. I found Rumble and Thundertron @ Mall of GA Target. All other locations were the same old same old. If any of you are interested in the Optimus Maximus cyberverse set, Target has them on clearance 50% off, they are now down to $16.48

I thought about mentioning that I found Thundertron and Ultra Magnus at Target in Snelville, Wal Mart in Snelville, and Wal Mart in Lawrenceville, as well as a Kup, but I didn't want anybody to snatch them up before I get my paycheck. >_> Well, I haven't yet, but the new voyagers at least seem fairly widespread. Though this may well be the only time we see them.

The new Voyagers have hit my area. 2 of each at Wal-Mart in Canton, 1 of each at Target in Woodstock. That Target also had Blast Off, but no other Combaticons.
