All the premium Target exclusives were at Botcon (only got Barricade). Haven't seen them in the Target stores yet, I heard mid May.

I had found the premium voyagers Blackout and Ironhide at the Target on Maplecrest about a month ago. Premium Optimus and Megatron I got at Meijer on Lima Road about 3 weeks ago. Haven't seen the premium deluxes yet as other sites boards said a release in mid May. Deepspace Starscream is up for order at the Target website.
Got all the new animated toys near Cincinatti, when I went to the Botcon.

Today I went on a hunt looking for transformers. I checked Lima Walmart, Cooldwater Walmart, I-69 Walmart, Meijer on Lima, Target on Coldwater, Toysrus in glenbrook commons, and even Kohl's toy section. I wasted about 1/8 tank of gas and found no deluxe premiums again. :sad:



I really hope someone will tell me where to get them if they are sighted.

I found both Premium Voyagers at TRU in Terre Haute on Friday. They had one on each and took them both.

This evening, my wife and I were at Wal-Mart on 46 around 10:30 and they pulling out new stock from the back. There were several cases of deluxes that said "wave 4 08" on the and one that said "wave 5 08" on it. I was sure the premiums were in the wave 5 box, but there was no one to ask to open the case for us so we went on about our shopping. I decided to go back a little after midnight and sure enough, I now have all three premium deluxes as well as Stealth BB and Salvage.

I'm still looking for the last three Real gears and waiting for the 2 TRU Voyager exclusives and the WM Deluxe exclusives.

I found Salvage at Wal-Mart South but no Stealth BB. No deluxe voyagers anywhere here yet. I'm looking for the Dispensor/Ironhide Robot Heroes set, and then Black Arachnia and Ironhide from Animated.

The Soundwave repaint is interesting but the Quickmix I'll pass on for those TRU exclusives.

I've seen premium Jazz at the Lima and Southtown Wal-marts in Fort Wayne. Coldwater had a couple and Southtown had one. I found the Jetstorm and Wingblade Ultras at Toysrus in Glenbrook, picked up Jetstorm. Went back the next day and the Wingblades were gone.

Animated has shown up in Hobart/Merrillville area at the Wal-Mart there. So far just the deluxes, however the Voyagers are on their way hopefully within the next few days. Here's pix of BB & Ratchet who I picked up, along with the receipt, & a pic of one of the boxes on a pallet there.

Saw the new Marvel crossovers at Target Glenbrook today. They have all 4.

No new TF's and what they did have was pretty picked over.

Got Encore Metroplex today. I haven't opened him up yet.

Looking for Animated Ultra Magnus, Swoop and S. Prime and Universe Sideswipe, Ironhide, Silverstreak, Treadbolt, and Stormcloud. I'm figuring anytime on seeing any of these in stores.

I also got Universe Unicron last week at TRU.

Glad to hear somebody else out there since the site had the temporary shutdown. I had reported seeing Unicron at TRU Glenbrook just before the crash. I haven't been back since though.

I'm going to the Detroit area this weekend and plan to see if there is any of the new stuff out yet.

I did preorder Shockwave, Inferno, Hound, Cyclonus, and Starscream at BBTS, I figured I would find Skywarp on the shelves readily enough.

I found EG BB. S. Prime and Swoop at the Clinton WM today. I especially wanted S. Prime and Swoop, but I took BB too just because of the sale. I always seem to find figures I'm looking for at this WM and the one in Sullivan.

I was a bit disappointed in the Detroit area stores. They had very little in Animated or Universe at all, let alone anything new. I did see plenty of Unicrons at the two TRU's I visited while there.

Was at the TRU Glenbrook and Target on Wednesday and neither one had anything new. WM on Coldwater had a lot of deluxes for $7.77, including Acid Storm and Megatron and most of the Animated line. Still no UM around, glad I got mine off the web.

I ordered the new Universe wave Ironhide,Silverstreak, and Sideswipe, along with Treadbolt and Stormcloud off Hasbro with that 10% off coupon. They have all the new stuff in stock and shipping immediately.

I'm patiently waiting for the Seacons and the City Commander set.

I went ahead and ordered all the new Universe figures from HTS. After I did some figuring, it is cheaper to go that way instead of driving to WM in hopes that they might have a certain figure. So now I'm waiting for them to be sitting on my doorstep in the next couple of days.

I saw one each of SPrime and EGBB at the WM on Lima Rd.,( didn't take, have already) I would of taken Swoop to have an extra if they would have had him, but they were out. All deluxes were $7.77.

Went looking for the Megatron ornament at Kohls on Illinois but they were out, save for the display. I might try Northcrest tomorrow.

WM Coldwater had alot of AS deluxes for $7.77.
