The Walmart in Chicopee has MP Starscream in stock now (well, minus a couple for me and my friend :grin: )

...no Titanium Ultra Magnus, though. (I did see a Cybertron Metroplex in a rather beat-up box.)

Nothing on the TF front, but Target in Abington has Lady Jaye x2 and Buzzer x2.

Wallys in Weymouth is dry as a bone.

Hey Guys,my name is Joe and I live in Revere

I work at best buy and if anyone wants or needs either the megatron or Ratchets I can easily get you store numbers in which have them, unfortenly(sp) my store doesn't( i work in the everett one)

The Everett target is pretty bare bones with the exception of the ultimate BB and the 2 pack of the old and new BB,Plus all of those rumblers

The Saugus target is pretty much the same as the everett one,however the saugus Kmart did have a titunium Cheetor.The price tag said 10.49 on it and i got excited and grabbed it to only find out that it was 18.49 and i passed.

But I'm going to the lynn walmart and the medford kmart this weekend so i'll keep and eye out for you guys,And does anyone know where or what store still carries either the classics(I.E grimlock,jetfire,Op and Megs) and the rumble and frenzy and wheeljack alternators?I've look everywhere and nothing

update from my last post

The Lynn wallys has classic devastator,two of them. I knew they were on clearence during the summer so i grabbed one to check the price and it scanned at 39.99. I didn't grab it.

And as of five minutes ago the revere stop and shop has the second wave of movie toys.Including recon barricade,final battle jazz,swindle,swerve,and payload. For 10.99 they look alright but seeing how i was there for lunch and not toys i passed.Damm i need a better paying job to afford all of these sick toys

The Wal Mart in Sturbridge, MA had the following:

Movie Screen Battles; Longarm and leg-less BB x2
Barricade w/ Frenzy, Sam and Mikaela

But most importantly, they had Masterpiece SS marked down to $30.00!!! There was still one remaining after I picked up one for me. ;;)

If there's anyone who's in Western MA and is a casual collector (meaning you don't mind no packaging/some dings and scratches), I recommend looking through the display cases at Collectables & Cards at the Holyoke Mall. They have quite a few loose G1, Energon, and Beast Wars figures of varying prices. Some are overpriced, but others are reasonable (I found Fireflight and Skydive for $5 each).

Even if you don't buy any, it's kind of neat just nosing at all the figures... I spotted Metroplex, Trypticon, Blaster, Brawn, Cosmos, Mirage, Silverbolt, Sideswipe, Gears, and Astrotrain among a number of others.

That sounds like The Toy Vault located in North Attleboro @ the Emerald Square Mall. They have all sorts of vintage G1, Beast Wars, Armada, En, Cyb stuff. Plus tons of other stuff like Joes, He-Man, TMNT, Trek, etc.

I found the Cliffjumper (BB re-paint) at KB in the Hanover Mall. They also had that Dune Buggy guy. And randomly ran into a Classics Mirage at the WM at the mall too. Oh, and they have like 5/6 of the G1 Movie Prime Voyager re-paints.

Raynham flea had like 3 tfs in the entire market. 1" Titanium Diecast figures. nothing special.


Big Lots in Seekonk had some ko's and tons of Optimus Prime vs Megatron.

wow. this thread seems kind of dead.

shame. Id like to know who collects in my area. (learn who my competition is XP)

anyways i live in the eastern mass area. do most of my hunting near reading/woburn and salem


MP skywarps have shown up in the North Reading Walmart. there are atleast 6 sitting on the shelves.

collecting seems slow around here so they will probably be around for a little while but i swear to primus if they're all gone by the time i have enough $ for one im gonna slaughter you all.

....

...

with primus.

@guardianprime: Hey I'm Chris. I was hoping to find an active Mass thread, oh well. I guess everyone else collects DCUC! ;-)

I'm in South Shore area, I typically hit up WM's and Targets in that area. Occasionally I happen to find myself as far down south as Fall River/Swansea and Providence/Conventry, RI for other reasons which I use as good excuses for hunts.

Currently I'm looking for TFA Arcee and Hot Rod.

Most of the WM's in the area seem to have MP Skywarp marked down to $30. I don't have him yet, but I'm waiting for the price to go down to $20 or less. I've also got my eyes on a Hardhead, but they've been $15 for the longest time. I want him, but I'm hoping for $6, which I what I found Onslaught and Powerglide marked down to, which nearly made me sick having paid full price for both when they came out.

Happy Hunting!

Hey guys in Mass! Are y'all having a hard time like I am finding some of the "new" transformers? I haven't been able to find any of the TRU exclusives, Mindwipe and Skystalker or the Human Alliance Barricade. Grrr...seems like they get everything way before us down south or in Michigan.... :sad:

I go hunting practically daily. I don't buy extras to try and resell, I'm just trying to buy for my own collection. I refuse to buy new stuff on ebay!

I am in the Shrewsbury area and have to agree about the lack of new products. We seem to get everything a month or two after everyone else. Although I was lucky enough to find Mindwipe and Skystalker, I haven't seen any of the Brawn/Ratchet/Lockdown yet. Usually the Target at Blackstone Valley seems to get things a little before the Northborough Target/Wal-Mart.

Any new product seems to be trickling in. I finally found the new Lockdown last week. TRU Arcee/Ratchet hit probablly 3/4 weeks ago, but its very hit or miss. I was very surprised to see them on shelf at the Brockton TRU. I grabbed one Arcee for myself and hit the registers. When I returned a few days later all were gone, and there were at least 4 Arcees/5 Ratchets left.

MP Skywarp seems to be stuck on clearance at $30 at WM. What stinks is that his numbers are dwindling. I'd be tempted if they even just came down to $20. Otherwise I'm not interested.

not much new stuff at Seekonk walmart, i think theres one MP SW at $30.

Toy Vault at Emerald Square Mall in North Attleboro has quite a few Alternators, some at 15.99 which i thought was a good deal.. I picked up Alternator Silverstreak for that price. :grin:
