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:

Brockton TRU has WFC Bumblebee & Prime. They also have some Cyb Ratchet and Arcee's. I also saw 2 of the new Power Core Combiners.

Looking for MP Grimlock. It was supposed to street today, but they didn't have any, and they got their shipment in yesterday.

@triKlops: where are you located? I'm in West Bridgewater.

Brockton TRU is FULLY STOCKED with TFA Arcee and CMRatchet. They must have about 6-8 of each.

Also have some new HFTD figures, Leader Prime, and some new Generations (Thrust, WFC BB & Prime)

No MP Grimlock =(

I went to high school with one of the employees who works at the Brockton TRU, we chat it up whenever I come in. I mentioned MP Grimlock, and she said she'd gotten a few calls about him, but had no idea who/what he was. I printed out some pictures (thanks Seibertron!) and gave 'em to her so she would at least know what we're talking about.

TRU in Dedham just re-opened. They're in a new spot by the mall next to Lowes. Its a nice store, seemed very small though. They had a ton of ROTF stuff, though did have a ton of TFA Arcee and Ratchet. Also found some new HFTD stuff there too.
