saw optimus maximus and the weaponizers at a kmart in....hammond i think it was? stopped at a few other stores and have come to this conclusion: Maybe there is a large group of kids that truly enjoy Bumblebee, but they must be the kids whose parents never take them to the store.

Toys R Us put out the FOC figures earlier today. They had at least two Shockwaves when I was there this morning. Hope that helps anyone looking for them.

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 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:
