Ah way to step to the plate Massholes. After starting 4 MA threads in the toy forum, we get an official one and noone posts.

/sigh.

Anyway, I spotted Voyager Megs and OP at TRU and Walmart in Framingham. Target there, has a Tit. Rodimus and SS as well.

I'm gonna check out the Salem NH Walmart this weekend. They seem to have the best stock of all the Walmarts I've been to. i fully expect to find a Concept BB and Movie Arcee there.

I'll keep ya'll posted.

Hey Bonger. No one posts here cause I don't think many people know how to find it. I had a tough time getting here. Anyway Ultimate Bumblebees have been popping up in Raynham, Dartmouth, Fall River and Seekonk. No deluxes any where though. Found Voyager Prime and Megs fri at TRU in Dartmouth.


AS always I am willing to help anyone out if they can do the same for me. If were close maybe we can meet up. As far as shipping the item I can do that too and to keep cost even lower if you plan to open anything I can always open it and send it in a small box.

Good deal.

Did you nab and Ultimate BB? I can't decide if I should drive down and grab one, or wait an dhope they go on sale since 80 smackers is a little stiff.

I live in Waltham, so Fall River isn't too far for me. Did you see BB in the Fall River Walmart?

Motto: "Odds bobs, Hammer and Tongs."
Hi, name is Chris I'm from West Bridgewater. I found this thread, just wanted to say hi.

I frequent TRU in Brockton and occasionally Dedham, Wal-Marts in Raynham (Avon & Halifax occasionally), Targets in Taunton/Easton/Whitman, and the dreaded K-Mart in Brockton.

Once in a while I get out to North Attleboro if time & $$$ permit. Sorry I don't have anything ot contribute, things are pretty scarse in this area.

I went to the Target in Easton last Fri, it hasn't been open two weeks and its already bare bones. I did see some Arcees, and a non-transforming Megatron, Barricade and Bumblebee there. Oh, and the Frenzy Fast Action Battler.

So there, maybe this post can be helpful to someone!

Has anyone seen any Classics around? I'm looking for the Wally exclusive Devastator, and anything else like Cliffjumper, Mirage, Jetfire, Astrotrain, etc.

I have Prime, Grimlock, Bumblebee, Megatron & Starscream, and I thought I was done, but now I want more! Esp. since I haven't been too impressed by the movie stuff.

Hey Chris... I hit some of the same places you do. I call Taunton and take a drive there once in a while.. Very close to DArtmouth so I got there after work I also hit Fall River and Seekonk and make trips up to N. Attleboro.

I just broke up with my girlfriend but she lived in Milford so I would hit the Walmart in Bellingham an the Targets in Plainville and Milford when I went to see her.. In the end everything is bone dry!!!

Even the TRU in Bellingham has nothing.... I talked to a guy in one of the Walmarts and he said the Delux Movie Tf's are on order... SO I guess I have to wait..

I have seen the Classics Devastator at Dartmouth and Raynham walmart and Classic Jetfrie at my TRU and AStrotrain at Walmart as well!!

Oh just wanted say put Ultimate Bumblebee together and even though he is cool he also kinda sucks... There is no instructions on how to tell you what to say to him and how to operate him. Just shows you how to transform him... I will save my money on this guy unless I can get him afta Christmas real cheap!!!


Whoo boy 200 posts..... That's sad....

Sweet. Maybe we've passed each other in a toy aisle somewhere! ;-) I haven't run into too many other collectors, though I know they're there, because theres usually nothing I want!!!

I'm on the other end of the shore so I've even hit up Target in Dorchester, and its no biggie for me to swing by TRU in Dedham. I probablly go by about a dozen Wal-Marts, so any one of them is usually game. Fall River is a little out of my sphere, but N. Attleboro is good for a special trip. At the very least, I can usually head into Toy Vault at the Emerald Square Mall and drool over stuff in there.

Sux about your g/f, unless she was a cheating, backstabbing controlling bioch, and in that case, just think of how much more funding you'll have for TF collecting!

I'll have to check out Dartmouth, the last time I was at Raynham I didn't see Devastator, but its been about two weeks since I was there. That Wal-Mart is either a disaster or a gold mine. It stinks passing on stuff and later on regreting that you didn't pick it up. If its something I really want, I'll buy it then, but in the case of Devastator, I was on the fence about it, and at the time I figured the movie stuff was coming and was having to watch what I was spending.

I was at the Solomon pond mall in Marlboro MA and was in the kaybee toys store.They only had a few transformers nothing special. There was won that I needed for me collection so at the register as im paying. I start talking to this girl that was ringing me up and i asked her about Transformer shipments. She told me they get the every Wed and put out everything for Thur. So i was fine with that. Just as im giving her the money to pay. She stops and says You know what you are really nice I think I have Three Boxes out back if you want you can come take a look. So of course I say Yes and sure enough There 08 BB, Dreadwing, Acree , payload , Long arm and final battle jazz. I was so happy. I goes to show you being nice really helps.

Opened it with my keys, and it turned out to be
OPTIMUS
MEGATRON
THUNDERCRACKER
RESCUE RATCHET.

Got me some thundercracker! Passed on the others.

They already had the new deluxes and leader BRAWL. LC

Seekonk had nothing but 20th Anniversary DVD and classics and alternators.

A guy in one Walmart told me that the Hasbro rep said Walmart is suppose to get their shipment of TF's in the first week of Sept..

Hey hey,

I see this thread got some lurkers to post. Awesome. maybe we can get a nice little info network going.

Anyway, for the guy looking for Classics Devastator. Walmart in Framingham has like 5 of them.

All the Targets seem to have the G1 repaints now, though I am gonna pass on all of them. The movie accurate ones are more than enough for me. Brawl is just everywhere as is Primus and DVD Prime. TRU in Frmaingham has like a dozen of each.

Still, no 08 BB though. It is the last figure I need too.

BTW, I live in Waltham. If anyone lives near me and like me pre-orders everything G1 related, let me know. We might be able to save on shipping by ordering together.

P.S. Check oput my trade thread in Carbomya. Maybe we can hook each other up.

P.P.S. Is it me, or does Mass seem to have fewer collecters than any other state?

Thanks Bonger about the heads up on Devastator, I'll see if I can swing out there soon, or maybe I'll call and see if that gets me anywhere.

Anyone looking for THUNDERCRACKER or RATCHET, the Wal-Mart in Fall River has a decent supply of them. I was there Friday night, and they had to have 3 or 4 Ratchets and 2 or 3 Thundercrackers. Plus they have some Voyager Megatrons.

Also, Target in Easton got in some new Real Gear, the controller, the wrist watch and the Decepticon cell phone. That was as of Thursday, so I can't vouch for how many there are now.

I've been going back and forth between the toy sightings post here and at tfw2005.com.

Yesterday at 9:59 p.m. someone by the name of Optimus posted that Danvers Target has Titanium WWI Ultra Magnus and Sunstorm.

Hope that might be useful to you.
