I haven't been hunting since I snagged my Hun-Gurrr at the Hamilton Mill Wal Mart a couple weeks ago.

Rhinox I saw him lastweek sometime over near Buford, Walmart I think it was. Next time I see him, I'll give you a shout.

Nothing to report on today. Was out all around Mall of Ga ( TRU, Target, Walmart, TJMaxx, Ross, Marshalls) and not a thing to report.

Yeah I did the rounds today. TRU: jack-all. Target: Jack-all. Hamilton Mill Walmart: Good selection, just not anything new. Forgot to check Walmart near 985 and didn't bother with the one on Lawrenceville-Suwannee off 85 because of the rain. Yesterday I checked the Walmart by 316 and the Lawrenceville Target and you can probably guess what I found.

I'm looking for a Voyager Shockwave and Legion Hun-Gurrr for a friend, so if anybody spots them before me, please give me a heads-up.

Tonight at the Snellville Target, I found Deluxe Skystalker and Ratchetbot II. No Dreadbird, though, and I snagged the Skystalker for myself. Then at the Snellville Walmart, I found two Voyager Shockwaves, three Predakings, and an Optimus. Snagged one for a friend in Florida, the other one should still be on shelf for anybody that wants one. Skipped the other Lawrenceville Walmart and Target because I found most of what I was looking for. Still need another Hun-Gurrr for my friend, and of course Legion wave 3 Terrorpreds to complete my Abominus.

Anyway. DELUXE WAVE THREE SIGHTED IN GWINNETT COUNTY. Good hunting!

Snagged Generations Blitzwing at the Lawrenceville Target (Lawrenceville-Suwannee Road and Walther Boulevard). The one I grabbed was the only Generations voyager in sight, but they had a ton of BH Voyagers, including 2 Shockwaves if anybody still needs one. Checked the Snelville Target and Walmart as well as the Lawrenceville Walmart on Sugarloaf, nothing new, and the new stuff I spotted last time was gone. I forgot to check for new Legions, though, derp.

For what it's worth, Blitzwing is pretty good once you get him figured out and loosened up. Remove the head when transforming unless yours actually stays sunk into his chest. The shoulders are as bad as everyone says, and I don't see much that can be done about it. I'm definitely looking forward to Springer more, now.

I saw a figure today that I honestly never thought I'd see in stores. The TRU next to Cumberland Mall (Akers Mill Shopping Center) had TFP Voyager Skyquake!!!!! I was SHOCKED to see him! TRU is selling the TFP voyagers for $29.99. I realize that this is a lot, but I paid $55 for my Skyquake so I think it's not too bad of a deal. There was only one and I put him behind TFP Ultra Magnus and another figure.

They also had TFP Deluxe Rumble, Kup and several Vehicons. Just a heads up for my fellow GA TF fans! I hope one of you can snag him up!

Man, I can't thank you enough for posting this! I called my brother and he swung by and got Skyquake! I never thought I would get a chance to own him. Thanks again!

The final wave of Voyagers seems to be hitting hard in TRUs everywhere. I haven't had a chance to look for one, but I've heard several people with similar reports across the country. Keep your eyes peeled! Sadly, Skyquake is shortpacked, but he's also equal-packed with one Magnus, Thundertron, and...Starscream I believe?

For those interested in vehicons, keep an eye out for them at Big Lots! I found them at the Fayetteville and Newnan location for 8 bucks. Also had Wheeljack, kup, bee, rumble, and sound wave.

I was out at the Duluth/Pleasant Hill TRU today.

Here's what I found:
Image
They had the full Voyager cases out there, one each of Prime, Thundertron, Skyquake, and Magnus, and two each of Springer and Blitzwing. Also a ton of Voyager Predakings, but that's beside the point.

Here's what I got:
Image
Image

This means there is one Springer and two Blitzwings left, but I go the only Skyquake. Sorry. I probably should have waited on Springer to show up somewhere else where he wasn't $25, but it's only $3 more than the Target price anyway, and I guess I like being ripped off by overpriced Voyagers with Skyquake. At least now my PRID Voyager collection is complete.

Cheers, Dalgb. Enjoy the hunt in your new territory.

So, work resumed today. After work I checked the
*Hamilton Mill Walmart: 2 Hun-Gurrrs, a good selection of all the wave 2 Cyberverse stuff. I don't remember if they had any wave 3 deluxes. No new Voyagers, PBH or Gen30.
*Buford Target: Nothing new to report. I don't think their stock has changed recently. Their lone Generations Soundwave has been warming that shelf for weeks, I wonder if they're waiting to put out new stock until he moves. They still have one Deluxe Chickenwing.
*Buford TRU: Full case of Gen30 voyagers (2 Springers 2 Blitzwings) on their shelf for $25 per. If I remember right, they had the following PRID Deluxes: Kup, Knock Out, Bumblebee, and Soundwave. No PRID voyagers. I don't recall any new Cyberverse stuff.
*Buford Walmart: Bare-bones selection. Some wave 2 Deluxes, I think they had the wave 2 legions and commanders, but no Hun-Gurrr or Commander Shockwave. No Generations Voyagers.

So if you want a triple changer and are impatient, TRU's got them. If you still need a Hun-Gurrr, I think Hamilton Mill is the only one that has them consistently. Commander Shockwave, Jetfire Starscream, and Hardshell are hard to find, especially Shockwave.

Good morning boys!

Just wanted to let you know that Google offers currently has a 20% off coupon for Toys R Us and its only good til 6/15.

Go to https://www.google.com/offers?gl=US and look up Toys R Us in their search field (there is a babies r us coupon on there too). From computer, i believe you can print the coupon. If you have a Smart phone, there is a google offer app that allows you to just call it up in the store to let the register folks scan from your phone.

Happy hunting!

Walmart at the corner of Lawrenceville-Swuannee and Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville had the wave 3 BH Voyagers when I dropped in on Tuesday: 2 Ultra Magnuses and a Grimwing. I bought neither, as I have higher priorities right now. Also, the Walmart at the other end of Lawrenceville-Suwannee in the Suwannee half had the Optimus and Bumblebee Legends packs, but someone had stolen the contents of the Optimus package (as well as a BH Soundwave), leaving their packaging behind as a testament to their crime. This riles me up pretty badly. Still holding out for the final three Terrorpreds, they're an instant buy. Pretty much anything else can wait.

Out in Buford today. TRU had the big Optimus for $60. Seeing it in person, I can say that it looks like a damn cool toy. If I were 8 years old, I'd want that thing. I rescind past criticisms because it looks like a great toy. Which it's meant to be. At Walmart or Target, I saw a Smokescreen. First one in a while. And Hamilton Mill walmart had nothing of note except a rapidly shrinking TF section. BH Voyager wave 3 is getting more distribution at least, I saw Magnus and/or Grimwing at several locations. I didn't take notes, though, so don't ask me where. Still no sign of Legion wave 3. Hopefully it's close.

Picked up voyager grimwing and BH Sharkticon Megatron at the Target on Pleasant Hill. Picked up the last of each - not sure if there were any more in the back. Also the Pleasant Hill TRU had the ultimate OP and the new KREO minifigures wave.
