Ok...This is my first post on this site. I have been reading for a while. I just wanted to share a story. 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.
This all happend last Saturday and tonight I was in the Target in Marlboro and there was an 08 BB and Leader Brawl So i got them both. They guy told me they should have more coming in soon.

Walmart in North Adams MA had a "TRA Voyager ASST." box out in the middle of the aisle last night at 9:45.

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.

What are your big 4?

Is anyone planning on going to see Transformers when it comes to IMAX in Natick?

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.

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!
