If you're looking for any of the Chinese Generations deluxe or Voyager Class figures the TRU on Butterfield has got all of them: Hotspot, Wheelie, Springer, etc.

They don't have Springer anymore. But I do. Also, I didn't see any Wheelie, but there was a box of TFs on top of one of the shelves, and I suppose it may have been more GDOs.

Heh, I was just there. The box of Deluxes on top was only the regular ones- Wheeljack, Junkheap, etc. The case of Voys up there was gold, however- GDO Powerdive, Hotspot, and Megatron x2. Also 4 Megs on the shelf and one Powerdive,which I bought.

Deluxes are BOGOHO today and tomorrow, so I grabbed GDO Swerve, and TFP Bee for my girl.

I was there this morning just as it opened. There was an entire row of just the Chinese imports. Someone made out with a ton of them if they were gone by the time you got there. There was only 1 Wheelie, 2 Springers, a bunch of Swerves and Cliffjumpers.

TRU Downers Grove had 2 zombie Cliffjumpers, an FE Vehicon, a couple FE Arcees and Starscreams, a GDO Wheelie, GDO Springer, and GDO Swerve at around 6 tonight. That's after I bought an FE Vehicon. I like this mold!

If anyone is interested, the Target on Howard near McCormick has the Prime Optimus Maximus on clearance (ALREADY) for $24. There looked to be three or four of them, in the regular Transformers isle.

They've also got a GDO Wheelie and some FE SSs and Arcees. But I just bought the four Combaticons they had. No Vortex though.

Walgreens in Des Plaines, River Rd and Oakton, had a TFP Vehicon and 2 Airachnids. They're in a stand-alone kiosk near the front. $14.99 too, IIRC, not bad. Walgreens is usually way more expensive than other retailers. FWIW.

The other day the Skokie Target had one Voyager Thudertron and one Voyager Ultra Magnus. I didn't buy them, but they may have been bought during the black Friday madness.

Happy Thanksgiving / Black Friday weekend everyone!

Just wanted to let you guys know that the Aldis in Des Plaines had about a 1/2 dozen Vehicons still as of this afternoon.

The Target in Arlington Heights on Rand had an Ultra Magnus and Thundertron around 3pm as well as a ton of Rescue Bots (all 8 versions) in the main aisle and then on one of the back end caps at the end of the toy section toward the back of the store. If you've been on the fence about them, today's a great day to buy them at $7.99 a piece.

OK, Toys for Tots time! Target in Villa Park has DOTM Deluxe 2-packs for $10. They are apparently paired thusly:

-Bumblebee/Air Raid (green AWACS jet)
-Nitro Bumblebee/Thundercracker
-Sideswipe/Armor Topspin
-Starscream/Roadbuster

I did not see these sets at the two other nearby Targets I visited tonight, but I'm sure they'll hit. Off you go then, be generous!

No TFP FE Voyagers at TRU in Downers Grove this morning at 8:00.

Please post your sightings of these guys! The BOGOHO sale ends on the 8th IIRC!

I saw these last night at my local Target in Crestwood. It was only a few, so I figured it was dead stock. With your sighting I now know its stock to make us dead.

I think I got the best deal on the Kre-o microchangers.
They scanned both of the Kre-o in and got the 40% off and then got the free Kre-o coupon off.
$1.72 with tax.
Plus, the TRU in Orland Park has First Edition Terrorcon Cliffjumper.
