Its the same everywhere. Is it the distribution or the fact that ROTF product still warms pegs? For the most part HFTD was the same s*** just a new packge. Even when TRU has it on sale for $7.99 it just won't move, so if they don't move existing product they're not going to order new stuff. Wal-Mart in Abington has 4-6 pegs FULL of ROTF/HFTD stuff, no room for anything new. I have a feeling we're going to be looking at DOTM figures well into 2013.

I think you have a good point. On the Northshore, I am seeing the occasional RTS Tracks; but those stores have few Movie toys.

The Raynham Super Wallyz is in a depressing state as always. I checked out the pallets, but nothing worth noting.

If you venture to the very back of the very first aisle on the endcap there is a Transformers display. They have a few Blurrs, a couple Dirges, a Red Alert, and of course tons and tons of WFC Megatrons.

They also have the preview DSOTM Prime (first time seeing those for me).

Kohls at Burlington (by Burlington mall) had tons or RTS. They had racks full of jazz, tracks, the brawn remold guy and the hailstorm remold. Sorry, no Wreck-gars or Perceptors.

Thanks for the Kohl's tip, Kondor.

Kohl's has been the only reliable source in this area for RTS figures, even more so than TRU. I can't wait until they get the newer waves. Another tip for the locals, if you want deluxe generations the Nashua, NH TRU is typically the way to go. Finally got my own Sweeps crew thanks to the Nashua TRU.

Man, its been a couple of sad weeks with no sightings of wheeljack, thundercracker, warpath or windcharger. Multiple wasted trips. I've only spotted one Kup recently too. I have the feeling that we are going to go straight into the DOTM toy line and one day sometime in the fall/winter we are going to find every current hard to find transformer in Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Here's hoping we don't have to wait that long. Speaking of Marshalls and TJM, it looks as though they all have received ANOTHER wave of ROTF deluxe figures, animated wreck gars and lugnuts....yay....

The TRU Express in the South Shore Plaza has Animated Deluxes Lockdown, Sludge, Cybertronian Optimus, Rodimus, and Ironhide, Voyagers Lugnut and Grimlock, some Crossovers for $16, and Human Alliance figs for $16.

Not exactly current stuff, but if you need a few more Animated toys for your collection, there's the place to go.

I just bought a RTS Turbo Tracks at the Walgreens at 525 Boston Post Road, in Marlborough. It was the only RTS figure they had, everything else was HFTD and ROTF. Walgreens isn't on the list of stores in the normal Sightings Reporter thing, but they do carry Transformers, and they can a good place to find shelfwarmers you may have missed.

Pretty much every place on the South Shore has the DOTM Preview pack.

Weymouth and Quincy Wal*Marts have stocked up on Generations Wave 3, the one with Skullgrin, Thunderwing, and Jolt.

Braintree KMart has plenty of Mindsets and Fallbacks, along with HFTD Scouts wave 2

I'm seeing Kup now consistently at every walmart (I saw four yesterday in one store). Scourge is very visible too now. For the first time I saw a reveal the shield bumblebee at worcester's walmart...just 1 and i took him (love the sunburst orange with the black stripes to match the movie's) but no reveal optimus or Wreck-gar. Has any of you seen Wreck-gar in massachusetts? If so, where? Some out of staters have reported that they've gotten him in walgreens, rite aid, stop and shop....I haven't seen him. He is the only one I'm missing right now.

last night there were 3 kups at walmart tewksbury for example. I got two kups early in the week at the walmart in lunenburg. Toysrus in leominster and nashua NH constantly have scourges and kups (usually early in the week). Toysrus in woburn just sux, never find anything there. Over the last three weeks I've been able to always find those two figures at any of these places (at the right time and day of the week of course :D ). I just can't find wreck-gar!
