Excellent find..! I consider it and my jet vehicon to be the stars of the Prime line so far. Hoping to somehow come across Breakdown and Dreadwing, and Airachnid too.
The Targets and Meijers had plenty of all the FOC figs, at least all the ones I've been to recently.

Got Airachnid, Dead End, and Shadow Strike BB, from BBTS last week. I did manage to find a cyberverse Breakdown, since he's ridiculously expensive everywhere. Displays around town are kinda sad, where are all these toys at?

Seems this has become more of a online hobby, rather than brick & mortar stores anymore. I get so disgusted never seeing stuff in stores until months after it has been released, if at all.. :-(

My wife found the new wave of TFP deluxe and grabbed a Kup and Vehicon from the Walmart in Westfield/Carmel on US31. I know most of the active members of this board are in the northern regions or far south but for any that may just glance the board and go from the central area, I've heard this wave popping up more and more. Also in Kokomo, I grabbed the Voyager Dreadwing from my Walmart so a good day for me :-) Good luck to all
Look for me on Facebook (I always could use new "nerd" friends to talk TF's with) http://www.facebook.com/pkilcline80

I was able to score one off e-bay for regular price and shipping. Finally all six seekers, including the IGear Coneheads. Got Fort Max pre-ordered at BBTS.

I can't believe I found a MP Optimus today on the shelf..! TRU has free lay-a-way which was cool as well. They also have the FE Prime double pack with shiny Megs and all the kids. TRU has the best TF display I've seen to date. Maybe things are turning around.

Found the 4 asian scouts at TRU today. :grin:

The only FE Prime still on the peg was Arcee, evidently someone came and bought them all today, that, or hid them. I actually had a employee check stock for me and none to be had. He had just brought out some sports figures for a guy that were in back, and for a nice change genuinely WANTED to help a customer.

Thanks for trying kid. :APPLAUSE:

Was a good toy week for me-finally!

I found Sgt. Kup @ WM west yesterday. It was almost $16 for this dinky little, barely bigger than scout sized figure. You can get a light up spaceship or drill for $22 which even includes a cyberverse figure, so how is it that these 'deluxe' size figures are so close in price..? Sorry to say, but Hasbro has about lost my business entirely. I can't really see a parent paying those type of prices either, for a tiny little vehicle that turns into a tiny little robot.

I don't like the way we've been jerked around with the exclusives either. They dangle these carrots in front of our faces only to tell us cancelled, or only available on a overseas website. WTF...

I've been collecting for about 15 years now and I think it's time to quit. It's no longer enjoyable and has become quite expensive. That, plus the unavailability of a lot of figures just doesn't cut it with me.

Sorry...just venting frustration. Hasbro just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

:BOOM:

I went to get my lay-a-way out at TRU yesterday before the 20% coupon expired. Low and behold when they rang him up again before the coupon expired-his price had gone up $20 and he rang up at 119.99. They overrode the price since I had locked in the $99.99, plus I got the additional 20% off of him. :grin:

I also picked up a FE Prime two pack set with the shiny Megs and all the kids, plus the Asian deluxe of CJ since he's basically the FE Prime version. Out of the four Asian deluxe figures they had only CJ and Swerve, no Wheelie or Springer.

Today I found Cyberverse Ultra Magnus at WM south. KMart had absolutely nothing but old stuff.

Snagged a MP Prime today at TRU. Hid the last one behind the Avengers toys (across from TF's) bottom shelf.

. saw the first edition entertainment pack and like three Arcees at the Merrillville TRU. If anyone goes out there and sees an FE Starscream and/or Generations Warpath, either let me know somehow or leave one there because I’ve had a craving for those guys lately
