Good luck! I hope you find it! I went to the Framingham Wal-Mart on a tip I got looking for Classics Devastator (Yeah, I shoulda bought it when I first saw it) but I turned up with nothing. I live in W. Bridgewater, next to Brockton/Easton, so Framingham is a decent hike for me.

As of last night:

Framingham Wal-Mart has a few Classics Primes and Jetfires, as well as some Primuses, Hasbro Anniversary Primes, and Ultimate Bumblebees, and a few Cybertrons including Soundwave. They also have a bunch of those blanket/pillow gift sets featuring Megatron and the other featuring Optimus, they're only $19.99.

Framingham Target has a few G1 Jazz, a bunch of Screamers and 3 Leader Primes and 1 Leader Megatron, some G1 Ratchets and I think I saw a G1 Thundercracker. Also, if my memory serves me right, I saw a Tit WWI Starscream too.

There were some Concept Bumblebees down to the Swansea TRU, but right after I picked mine up, some probable Scalpers cleaned the place out of them. They still have some final battle Jazz, Arcee and Ultimate Bumblebee.

Yeah, the Farmingham tip was from me. I'm shocked. Classics Devastator was sitting there for months.

Hmm. I seem to see that one everywhere. Want me to grab it for you next time I see it. I live in Waltham and work in Boston.

No luck on Tit. UM. All sold out when I got there yesterday morning. :sad:

Well, I'm still on the lookout for my big 4.

Has anyone seen Voy Ironhide recently? I know if he's been seen he'd have been reported here, but I just thought I'd ask anyways!

Thanks,

Thanks for the tip! I'll def. call before making the trek out there this time. Its not that its that far from where I work (Quincy) its just that its in the opposite direction of where I live! I should have had the foresight to look up any toy stores when I went out there to visit Wally world.

Bonger,

Thanks for the tip on Ironhide. I got to TRU and no dice. Not wanting to have made the trip for nothing, I headed over to Target, and I hit the jackpot! I found Voyager Ironhide!!! So, now I've got all the movie 'Bots!

For anyone looking, Framinham Target had the new Robot Replicas, they had Jazz, Prime and Frenzy. I picked up Prime and Frenzy, I think there were 2 Primes left, 1 or 2 Frenzys and 3 or 4 Jazz'.

Happy Hunting!

Hi guys,
Hit a couple of places these past days. Wally world down Fall Rivers had a bunch of Ravage, Rumble Alts at $19 each. Constructacons for $29. Voyager Thundercraker, Megatron, and 1 Repaint Rachet.
Targe at Taunton has G1 paint Starscreams and 1 Ironhide. I picked up a couple of G1 paint job Jazz. LMK if you are looking for 1, always willing to trade :-)
May have more tomorrow.
Later!

It looks like all Walmarts now have 2nd wave stock on all movie toys. Quincy is pack to the gills!
Happy hunting!

Inoticed, but now I don't want anything from the second wave. My eyes are now on the BattleScenes coming out in first quarter '08.

I do still need a Titanium G1 Ultra Magnus. Someone find one for me!

Just got back from Best Buy in Dorchester! That was a lunch break well spent! Got Silvery Megs and the DVD with the robot heroes.

They had 2 Silver Megs and five metallic Ratchets when I left, and at least 10 packs w/ the special Robot Heroes.

I was glad to see they had everything on display. Sometimes when Best Buy offers "exclusives" they don't have anything out, and god forbid you ask an employee about it, they look at you like you have two heads, and even if you show it to them on the ad, they still look at you like you're retarted.

I didn't see anything in the Chicopee Walmart last weekend (though they had a sizable stock of all the newest Movie items). I'm going to check the Springfield one on Friday.

Anyone still hunting for anything? Well, besides MP Starscream now. Is anyone going to pick that up?

Weymouth Wal-Mart has a TON of Alternators Ravage and Rumble. They're in the far section of the toy area on the end area of the shelves. Just sitting there... not on clearance though.

I saw an Arcee there, as well as a Scorponock and a couple of that Decepticon truck... can't think of his name right now...

They also have 2-Packs of that non-transforming Prime vs. Megatron

Well, besides the SS that apparantly does not exist in MA or NH yet, I am still looking for the G1 Titanium Magnus.

Starscream has got to be hitting us any time now. If it was out in the midwest 3 days ago, the trucks should be reaching here right about now.

Hopefully SS will be coming to a WM near us soon. I'm getting impatient! I dunno why, prolly cuz I know other people have him now!
