Yeah, hither, thither, and yon. He's an infrequent sight at Walmarts and Targets in the Lawrenceville/Buford/Snellville area, but he's there nonetheless.

Ok, technically not in Ga, but its cool as hell and unfortunately only available til tonight at 12 am. It's a shirt site I subscribe to where artists sell their design for one day only. And today, it's 2 different transformer designs. An Escher inspired starscream shirt and a grimlock design as he would be found excavated. Eleven dollars per shirt. Sometimes they do offer them the day after but he price goes up to 14 dollars. Sometimes, they don't offer the shorts the day after. Anyhow, here is the link!

I order from them often and am never dissatisfied .

TRU Tucker has the big, beautiful Masterpiece Soundwave. I saw 4, bought 4 (just kidding) bought 1, and one guy was trying to buy one over the phone, leaving 2 of the ones displayed.

So I had a major find this morning! The Target in Sandy Springs at the Prado had the BH Wave 4 Deluxes, Voyager Predacons Rising Darksteel, Deluxe Skylynx, Beast Fire Predaking, as well as the Cyberverse sets as well! They have put up a new display and had all of these guys. I picked up BH Croc-Out, Arcee and 1 of the 8 Darksteel figures! It made for a glorious morning indeed!

There were 2 of the Predakings, 7 Darksteels, Vertebreak, Skylynx and Cyberverse sets available when I left. Get 'em while they're hot!

The masterpieces are hitting the stores and not even hitting the shelves. My closest TRU in Fayetteville sold out of MP SW practically as they opened last Saturday.I was calling in and when I finally got an unenthused associate on the phone, they had already sold out. La Vista rd location got 8 in and my brother got the last 2, one for me and one for him. This morning i was up in north Atlanta at a horse show and decided to look on TRU.com to see if acid storms were showing up. To my surprise they not only had him but also a few soundwaves at the Lenox location off of 400. I had them hold an AS for me and when I got there, they had one SW left and I watched another go out the door. All of the masterpieces they had were held at the customer service desk. None were shelved despite having the AS merchandised space with tag on the shelf. This was the same thing La Vista did. I do not know how many AS they had left. BTW, I was shocked to see that this mp seeker was packaged in alt / plane mode.

Also, if interested in 15% off coupon, go on Facebook and install toys r us towers. Play the game enough to level up (takes about 20-30 minutes) and once you reach bronze you get a 15% off coupon that's good for a single item for at least a week ( I think... Maybe 2 weeks). You can print the coupon instantly or have emailed to yourself ( we found that it never showed up in our e-mails even after 30 minutes so we printed the damn thing).

So, you will save 18 dollars against SW or 10 dollars against AS.

Best of luck!

Severa
******** BTW... The associates at the front counter at the Lenox location ROCKED! Very helpful and accommodating. Wish they were like this in Fayetteville .********

At TRU on barrett in Kennesaw they had 2 MP Soundwaves but both were being held up front at the service desk. No sign of Acid Storm.

If anyone still wants Prime deluxes they are now at Five Below for $5.

See no one's updated in a while. Looks like Kennesaw hasn't been restocking as I've seen empty pegs except Beast Hunters stuff. No Generations deluxe anywhere. Had to get Skids online. MP Acidstorms at Barrett TRU.

Looks like stores are starting to replenish. Marietta Walmart by Big Chicken (forgive my directions as I just moved here from NY) finally got Generations stuff back in stock. Unfortunately it was all earlier waves but that's much better than seeing empty pegs. They had 2 Megatrons, 1 Thundercracker, 2 Hoists, 2 Springers and a Blitzwing. I did manage to get Casey Jones from the TMNT line as a tide me over.


All the Targets seem to be taken over with BeastHunters. Not really following those figures as I stopped collecting Transformers Prime figures once I got all the original figures. Can't really get into buying the figures again with repaints and redeccos.


If anybody is still here and they find Whirl please drop a line.

Welcome to GA Darkman. Please don't judge us by our city's stupidity in assessing 3 inches of snow. You seem to be adjusting well seeing as The Big Chicken has been a notable landmark for years!

Board is kinda dead right now. Not a whole lot to scramble over but due post things for us to keep an eye out for.

Casey was a good find. I still haven't seen him yet. I'm going to TRU in Fayetteville this weekend and will shout if I see anything good . I am anxious to find Skywarp. I do like that cynertronian mold. Think they coulda done better in alt mode though behind the cockpit to conceal the head.

On a side note, has anyone been to the Atlanta Comic Convention? There is one coming up in a few weeks and want to know if it is worth going to.

I've gotten invites to ACC but never gone, because I forgot and comics aren't really my thing. I've been to Momocon, Savcon, Dragon*con, Anime Weekend Atlanta, Nerdacon, and Atlanta Anime Day, and they all tend to have at least a little presence by TF toys in the dealer rooms. Savcon much more so, since it's a dedicated TF con. ^^

I think I will give ACC a go on the next. I'm not much into
Comics anymore but they have to have more than just that.
I need to go to the Savannah Con too. Dragon Con is great but
I wish there was more of a transformer presence.

HA

That whole snow thing was a mess. I understand what happened though as these roads are dangerous with all the hills when it's Iced over. Hopefully now the threat of Snow in GA is great enough for the city to prepare a little better. I'm really hoping that the city closure is part of the blame for stores not stocking.

Also, thanks for the heads up on the ACC. I collect MU figures too so maybe I'll find something of worth out there between that and TFs.

I was wrong... It's today! I thought it was later this month.

http://www.atlantacomicconvention.com

What is MU? Marvel universe? I collect them too, but only the ones for an Infinity Gauntlet scene.

Though we are a month past Christmas, it always seems that restocking is slow afterwards. I went to the Fayetteville TRU yesterday. They had 6 Acid Storm masterpieces, 3 Platinum Ultra Magnuses and 2 FE Prime Starscreams which was really weird to see again.

The only thing that made the trip worth it was them having Neca predator series 11. I picked up all 3 and was stoked I completely forgot to post on here about the transformer find.

"What is MU? Marvel universe? I collect them too, but only the ones for an Infinity Gauntlet scene."


Yup. I started collecting Marvel Universe figures just to collect the X-Men but it has definitely got out of hand some couple of hundred figures later between Marvel Universe and the other Marvel 3.75 inch line figures. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fant 4.....too many Marvel teams and once you get one from the group you want to complete the whole team. #-o


Did my usual rounds today between Acworth Target and Walmart, followed by Barrett TRU, Walmart, and Target in Kennesaw. Don't know if people are buying them but Constructabot sets pretty much flooded the pegs at the Target and TRUs along with Prime Beast stuff. Only things I saw outside of that were the usual MP acid storms and FOC Grimlock vs Bruticus. Also Barrett TRU has one lone FOC Voyager SoundBlaster that I've been tempted to pick up but haven't since I already have Blaster in that mold.

My find today was not a new find at all, but what makes it notably bad-ass was the price I found it at. Transformers Prime, Beast Fire Predaking Target exclusive with 21 inch wingspan, and light-up fire breath thats typically 49.99.....on clearance for.....


....12.48 at the Newnan location.

Buddy of mine up in Milwaukee tipped me off last night via FB that he got his for 19.99. I was exstatic to find them for 12.48.

One left in Newnan on a toy clearance end cap. But chances are you might be able to find them closer to home.

Ventured deep into Marrietta today and lucked up pretty big. The K-Mart on Roswell RD announced last Sunday that they are going out of business so everything is 10-30% off. Toys are 25%. Got Generations Thundercrakcer and Bumblebee there for just over $8 bucks each. They still had 2 Trailcutters, Beast Hunters stuff, and 1 FOC Grimlock. Almost also got an Xbox One with the 25% off too but didn't bite at first but when I came back it was gone.

I found the most recent wave of Generations deluxe figures at the Target next to Perimeter Mall. I bought the last Armada Starscream, but there were several Scoops and Skywarps left. I didn't see the Minicon team though.
