Found rid arcee at a target up here so ratchet is in Minnesota, but where.

Haven't seen any Ratchets, but have seen Arcee. Wasn't Arcee part of wave 1 or 1.5 or something? I got her through BBTS with BB, CJ, and Wheeljack. Maybe Ratchet's not come out yet here. I'm also looking for the Legion commanders. Any sightings yet?

Edit: I'm high. Soundwave came with my RID order, not Arcee. The Arcee I got was the Takara FE. That whole time, watching all the Hasbro First Additions disappear from BBTS and scrambling to get what Takara FEs I could had me confused.

IIRC, PRID Arcee and Ratchet is wave 2. It might be still early as currently TF isles in all stores are still thin. They just basically overloaded with Star Wars stuffs and the upcoming Avengers (Walmart still has tons of DOTM deluxe). I just have to keep telling myself be patient.

Nope. No signs of Cyberverse Commander either. My son is waiting for Megatron, Starscream, and Bulkhead.

Speaking about Bulkhead, a friend of us came back from Taiwan last week and brought me back FE Bulkhead Hasbro version. I got it last night and HE IS AWESOME.

Stumbled upon Ratchet at the Plymouth Target at 42nd and 494. Opening it up in a sec for my son. Saw the Bot Shots OP and Megs. They almost look like fun.

The FE Cliffjumper, Bulkhead, and Vehicon are stellar, though Bulkhead is my favorite. I wish I could find FE Prime. RID Prime is not horrible, but FE just looked so good. $90 on Amazon at this time.

Indeed, welcome! It's always nice to have more eyes on the lookout.

Got a surprise last night. I went to the Target in St. Louis Park and ran into some new Human Alliance figures. (Sorry, no Soundwave.) Master Disaster with Drag Strip (yellow formula car, and snagged the only one I saw) and Sgt. Detour with Raverb (Red hover bike, 3 left) were on the very sparse shelves with a few Legion (legends) and Legion Commander (Scout) DotM figures and a couple of Ark playsets. No Prime RID. No Bot Shots. Methinks there might be a new stocking coming there soon.

Also of note, these Human Alliance figures are not listed in the sightings section, so I could not report them there.

Cheers!

Well I found 2 Prime figures today at the Bloomington Walmart.
I bought them though, it was Ratchet and Arcee. so walmart is getting them nowish. there was a soundwave still on the shelf but that was this morning.

maybe theyll restock soon though so it may be worth a look at bloomington or other walmarts in the twin cities may have them also its likely.

and thanks for the welcomes, hi right back at yah

Yep, Ratchet just popped up at my walmart yesterday too. The weird thing was that someone tried to hide him under the shelf but they left the whole top of the card out in plane sight.

I finally saw the Cyberverse commanders in a Target in Maple Grove. Snagged Optimus and Starscream.

I also saw that it appears some First Edition Voyagers are finally making their way to the states. Unless someone is lying in the Sightings. (Though, that never happens, eh? ;) )

Same here. Yesterday at Brooklyn Park Walmart I saw Cyberverse commanders. I got one Bulkhead and one Megatron and going to get Prime and Starscream today. There are no Bulkhead left. Still have 2 Megatron, 2 Starscream, and many Prime. They also have one deluxe Ratchet and one deluxe Arcee and couple Soundwaves. Also Wheeljack, Cliffjumper, and the yellow car you know who. I also saw two Generation Junkheap on a different isle and of course, bunch of left over DOTM deluxe.

Well, Brooklyn Park Target also has Cyberverse commander as well, and cheaper ($7.99 each comparing to Walmart's $9.47). Looks like I have something to return to Walmart. Didn't really count how many but they have all except Bulkhead (bought the last one for my daughter).

Well got some money this weekend, got no school tomorrow so sounds like a good day to go toy hunting. I'll let you know if find anything.

On a side note, I've got a new addiction. :BANG_HEAD: Monsuno. :BANG_HEAD: Man those little tubes are so fun to launch and see the animal inside fly out. I'll probably pick one more up tomorrow.

Back on topic, fingers crossed that I find some tfp rid deluxe wave 3 and some voyager wave 2.

If you are still looking for PRID wave 2 or the hard to find wave 1, Plymouth Target has 1 Ratchet, 1 Arcee, 1 Soundwave, and 1 Wheeljack. No need to mention how many Bees they have.

Stopped by a few stores after dinner looking for wave 3 prid once I saw the news.

So of course no luck, but each store i went to had a full wave 2 case on the pegs. Grabbed another prid Soundwave since the pin joints on my first one were loose. Bot Shot wise found all wave 1 single packs, both 3 packs, and the prime and megs launcher. So when wave 3 hits MN, wake me up. I-)

WAKE UP!!!!!

At Brooklyn Park Target, found 2 Knock Out, 2 Hot Shot, and 1 Vehicon. Only got the 1 Vehicon for myself since I'm not interested in Knock Out and Hot Shot. They also have 1 Ratchet and 1 Arcee if you missed them. No signs of wave 2 voyagers and Cyberverse Breakdown.

Great news. Now all I have to do is get a ride to town or have my dad stop after work.

By the time I got to the Brooklyn Park Target that day, all that was left were about a thousand BBs (okay, 5 or 6), Ratchet and Arcee. I finally grabbed Arcee for my son.

Today (I'll put in the sightings if I get a chance) I grabbed Voyager Starscream, Voyager Bulkhead (I want to compare to my FE) and Cyberverse Ironhide and Dreadwing. Unfortunately, this just left one CLiffjumper, about a thousand BBs, Voyager Megs and Prime as well as cyberverse Prime. All this happened at the Champlain Super Target.

Happy hunting. (The only thing I'd like at this point is another Deluxe Vehicon for my son....)
