Not sure if they're still there, probably gone later today or by tomorrow, but the Toys R Us in Columbus, GA had 2 Voyager Class Dreadwings

Good day out today. Found TFP Ultra Magnus at Walmart. Also got the B2G1F @ TRU for TFP First editions.

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.

1 each of Thundertron and Magnus at Target on Scenic Highway in Snelville.....are gone, because I bought them. :P They were the only ones there. They also had 3 Combaticons, I think Blast Off, Vortex, and Swindle. Don't quote me on that, I didn't pay much attention beyond "oh hey it's some Combaticons" because I wasn't planning on buying them. Because I snagged Magnus and Thundertron, I didn't check any other locations on my way home from work. When I went out hunting in the Buford, Suwanee, and Lawrenceville areas on Saturday after work, I didn't see any new Prime figs at any location (TRU, Target, and Wal Mart by MOGA, Wal Mart on Lawrenceville-Suwanee west of I-85, Wal Mart in Lawrenceville off 316). TRU had several of the Prime FE Entertainment Pack and still 7 MP Thundercrackers hogging shelf space that could be used for our precious MP Prime.

I'm honestly somewhat annoyed at how many concurrent product lines Hasbro is running within Transformers. On shelves right now you can find the following lines. About half of these are exclusive to or only sticking around at Toys R Us, but the point stands.
*Prime FE
*Prime RID
*Prime Cyberverse
*Bot Shots
*Generations FOC
*Generations 2010 leftovers
*Generations Asia
*Masterpiece
*DOTM Mechtech and Cyberverse leftovers
*Various masks and some other roleplay weapons that I don't think ever go anywhere
*RC Cars
*Nicknacks from the last couple of years
*Rescue Bots, but that's with the other young child stuff

It's just so much stuff competing for limited shelf space, this is in desperate need for an overhaul. I guess TRU doesn't really care, it's all Transformers to them, and they're the ones that picked up FE, MP, and GDO as exclusives.

Didn't see much while out Wednesday around the Mall of GA and Hamilton mill areas. Either they had minimal inventory in the section or I owned everything already. Guess I will just need to wait til after the first of the year when the new waves start shipping out.

Was out and about today. Starting to see TFP Thundertron and Ultra Magnus out and about. Other than that, nothing much to report.

Yeah, Ol' Peg Leg and Hammer Featuring Robot Toy are pretty everywhere. Combaticons are starting to be in more places. I picked up a Sgt. Kup at Snelville Wal Mart last wednesday. I now need only Rumble, Shadow Strike Bumblebee, Starscream, and Skyquake to complete my PRID collection, though I'll be waiting until Shadow Bee hits a steep discount because I've got that mold twice already. If anybody finds a Rumble northeast of the perimeter, give me a buzz, okay? I'll probably check a Target down by 85 and 285 on Friday on my way to the Madoka Magica movies, because I saw him there last time when I had no money, but he may be gone by now and not restocked. I'll keep you guys posted.

I've only seen Rumble once. It was at Target in Canton about a week ago. Probably too far of a drive for you to gamble it's still there.

Tonight, I found an untapped vain of freshly stocked deluxe Transformers Prime figures at...Walgreens.

Up front by the registers was a red cardboard corrigate Christmas shipper that had transformers in it. They had 1 deluxe Ratchet, 1 Vehicon, 2 Wheel Jacks, 1 Fruity Pebble Wheel Jack (Dead End) and 1 Airachnid! There may have been a few more but after I saw Airachnid, i stopped digging back. I know she has lame hands and well...is lame, but I wanted her to perhaps just keep in alt mode as a hanging piece in my display over my primes. The price was supposed to be 14.99 but they had them priced wrong at 10.49...and thats what I walked out with her for.

Happy Hunting!

Ah, that's the elusive wave 4 revision that we all wanted and eventually turned up at Aldi. It has
1 x Hot Shot
1 x Ratchet
1 x Knock Out
1 x Wheeljack
1 x Dead End
1 x Airachnid
2 x Vehicon
Nice to see it popping up elsewhere.

So while I worked the graveyard shift lastnight, I took total advantage of the situation this morning. I swung by the Mall of GA TRU and sure enough on the shelves & pegs were FOC Soundwave, Soundblaster, Ratbat/Frenzy, and Ravage/Rumble. I couldn't help myself and I also took advantage of their buy 1 get 40% off deal.

I grabbed 1 Ratbat/Frenzy, 1 Ravage/Rumble, 1 Soundwave, and 1 Soundblaster. I don't remember seeing any Dreadwings, but I remember seeing a lot of Starscreams, Ultra Magnus', and Thundertrons. It was very messy and unsorted at the time also. Good luck

I was at the Target right next to Perimeter Mall tonight and they had 3 Rumbles, 3 Knockouts, 2 Kups and 2 Vehicons. I was there right before close so these should all be there tomorrow. I'm going to check the Cumberland TRU tomorrow as well. I'll let you guys know if I find anything interesting!

I did the rounds in Buford today.
Ross and Marshall's: nothing notable. One or two RID Starscreams each, a couple old DOTM knicknacks, and I think I saw one RID Knock Out.
TRU near MOGA: Someone else got there RIGHT before me and snagged the last First Edition Bulkhead, as well as a FE Starscream. Was that any of you guys? Anyway, all that was left was a ton, and I mean a TON, of DOTM deluxes. They had filled up most of the pegs and were taking up the top shelf space, with at least 3 more cases on top of the shelf waiting to be put out. 8 Masterpiece Thundercrackers, a few Optimus Maximii, and maybe 2 representatives each of Generations FOC and Prime waves 1, plus a bunch of RID Starscreams. Oh, and those Bot Shots 5-packs. There was one new thing, though, and that was the FOC minibot two-packs. I saw both Frenzy/Ratbat and Rumble/Ravage in multiples. No FOC Voyagers, though.
Target: A few FOC Combaticons and a lot of Cyberverse and Bot Shots.
TJ Maxx: Same story as Ross and Marshall's. I noticed at these three locations a lot of M.A.R.S. sets I haven't seen at the bigger retailers, like the dinosaurs and the armor bots. Anybody know anything more about these? They're kinda nifty looking.
Wal Mart: Once again, nothing to see here.
I also stopped by the Lawrenceville Wal Mart on L'ville Suwannee west of I-85 because it's near my route, nothing there either.

At all locations, I found they were just about clean out of deluxes after Christmas, but had a bunch of Cyberverse and Bot Shots stuff, and the only voyagers to be found were Starscreams.

Wal Mart is heavily discounting most of their Prime stuff. I believe it was 50% off all Legions, Commanders, and Deluxes. Good time to snag that missing figure for your collection or build your Legion Vehicon army.

The other day, I picked up a Voyager Starscream for $13 after tax at the Ross by the Lawrenceville Target. The corresponding Marshall's had nothing new, although I saw a couple Generations Wheeljacks for $8 that I considered getting (ultimately passed). I might have the two stores backwards as far as what I found where, but it doesn't really matter, it's a five minute walk from one to the other.

I am currently missing only three figures from my complete Prime RID collection: Skyquake, Shadow Strike Bumblebee, and Rumble. Skyquake hasn't been spotted yet, Shadow Bee I'll get if I can find one at a TJ Rossall's, and Rumble I'll take at any price (well, $15 or less). PLEASE GIVE ME A HEADS-UP IF YOU FIND A RUMBLE IN THE GWINNETT COUNTY AREA. I'll head out to Pleasant Hill tomorrow to give that area a look, but it's generally not been very good for finds. Thank you, all.

I have some surprising news to share with you guys! I was at the TRU on Cobb Pkwy near Cumberland mall and I found 3 out of 4 of deluxe wave 1 of TFP Beast Hunters! They had Lazerback, Wheeljack and Soundwave. :grin:

They only had one of each and I nabbed the Lazerback but left the other two. I used my TRU rewards coupon for $5 off and got him for a little over $11. They also had the FOC data disks, two FE Bulkheads, and two FE Terrorcon Cliffjumpers. Needless to say, the Beast Hunters deluxes shocked me. I did not expect to see these on the east coast, let alone GA for at least another month. However, Beast Hunters are in GA! Happy hunting!

I'm seriously considering heading over there tomorrow to snag a Bulkhead, because I've been wanting one of those for a freaking year. I'll also look around for a Rumble.

Today I headed out to Pleasant Hill to check Toys R Us, Marshalls,TJ Maxx, and Target. I saw BH Soundwave at the TRU, and they also had the data discs, but nothing else notable at any location. Well, Target had a single Kup, but I've already got him. So yes, I can reaffirm with Rhinox that Beast Hunters has LANDED in Georgia. Let the hunt begin anew!

If you're coming to this side of town and don't find FE Bulkhead at the Cobb Pkwy location, the TRU in Kennesaw had 5-6 FE Bulkheads on Thursday.

Also, for anyone still looking for Vehicons, Aldi has marked all their toys 50% off, meaning you can get one for $4.99! I was just at the Aldi on Eagle Drive in Woodstock and they had 4 Vehicons, 2-3 of Wheeljack, Knockout, Ratchet and Airachnid, and 1 Hot Shot.

Not much to report out and about today. I did find 1 each of Voyager Dreadwing and FE Bulkhead @ MoGA TRU. Nothing much at TJ Maxx. Walmart and Target are starting their resets. Everywhere else is still pretty bare.

Was bored at lunch today so I went to...K-mart. Interesting enough, they have their Powerizer/Voyager Class on sale today for 16.29. I think the sale ends today though.

I checked TRU yesterday afternoon and Bulkhead was gone, still loads of DOTM, and as you said a bunch of RID Voyagers but only one Dreadwing. They did have 4 Soundwaves and a Soundblaster, though. My first time seeing them. After I got home I went online and bought a Rumble on eBay for marginally more than retail, including shipping, because I'm sick of empty store shelves or masses of Bumblebee. I thought about doing the same for FE Bulkhead but ultimately decided to hold onto a little cash until I get paid again.
