I guess I'm the first one.

I am a working college student who doesn't have a ton of time to go hunting. I do however, know of a store near me that has two '74 Bumblebees so if anyone wants those for C+S I'll go pick them up for you. In return, I'd appreciate help on 08 Bee (like everyone else, don't worry I don't have my hopes up), Leader Brawl (when he comes out), MP G1 Starscream (ditto), and I'd also appreciate any leads on an Alternators Jazz with G1 paint.

Cheers

As of Sunday, the Walmart on Rt. 73 in Berlin had a bunch of Alt. Ravages and Rumbles. Not much in the way of movie toys, but they did have 3 Deluxe Classic Astrotrains and 2 Classic Cliffjumpers. I was surprised because I thought I'd never see classics in the stores again since the movie toys came out. They also had some older Cybertron toys.

I can confirm Smokescreen GT's Berlin WM sightings. The cliffjumpers were gone, but there were quite a few classics ramjets, astrotrains and Devastators left.

Also, there's 1 Leader Prime there (movie), but the box was ripped at the bottom.


I picked up 2 rumbles, 2 Ravage (XK8's), Devastator, Ramjet and Astrotrain.

Thanks a bunch!

Still about 4 each of the alternators. Go git 'em!

Motto: "Transform and smoke 'em!"
Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
I was just at the Marlton Walmart on Rt. 70. They had the following:

7-8 Voyager Megatrons (ice)
Plenty of voyager Ironhide, Starscream, Ratchet and I think Blackout.
No Voyager Primes that I saw.
No new deluxes. Asked someone if there were any more in back and he said no.
2 Robot Replica Megatrons (I bought one so there’s only 1 left).
2 Robot Replica Barricades.
1 Robot Replica Bumblebee.

I will be stopping by the Target on Rt. 73 near Evesham Rd. on my way home from work. I will report back if I find anything.

Stopped at the Target on Rt. 73 near Evesham Rd. I scored me the only Ultimate BB they had! None left. Sorry!

They also had robot replicas: BB, Megs and Barricade. No deluxes, voyagers or leader figures, I'm afraid. They did have the usual Real Gear stuff, but no High Score or Meantime.

I went TF shopping this morning. Here's the rundown.

Walmart Supercenter - Rt. 42 Turnersville
2 Ultimate Bumblebees - as of 10:15am. I already had him so left them both.
No new deluxes, voyagers or leader figures. Empty pegs galore.

Sicklerville Target - Cross Keys Rd.
New Real Gears - 2 High Score 100s & 1 Meantime. I bought one of each so there is only 1 High Score left as of 10:35am. Nothing else there worth mentioning.

I also went up to TRU and Target in Deptford. Nothing at either store worth mentioning.

Just got back from the Walmart Supercenter in Turnersville. Scored me Payload and Longarm. They were the only ones left I'm afraid. No more. They had plenty of protoforms, though. Oh, and one Arcee was left as of about 6:15pm.

I just got back from the Marlton Walmart on Rt. 70. They had new deluxes! Here's the rundown:

1 '08 Bumblebee
2 Arcees
2 Dreadwings
2 Final Battle Jazzs
1 Longarm
2 Payloads

I also saw some of the older deluxes: Barricade (regular) & Brawl were the ones I noticed. They also had at least 5 Voyager Megs, but no Voyager Primes.

So, go get 'em before they're gone!

Motto: "Transform and smoke 'em!"
Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
I was up at the Marlton Walmart at lunchtime and they had restocked a lot of old TFs. They had lots of Alternators (Skids, Sunstreaker, Rollbar, Ricochet), Cybertron toys, 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime, Cybertron Primus, and Classics (Dlx. Grimlock, Voy. Optimus Prime, Dlx. Cliffjumper, Voy. Jetfire to name a few). They had plenty of everything. I can’t remember them all or how many exactly. I only have 45 minutes for lunch. So, if there’s anything old you want, go get ‘em!

As far as the movie toys are concerned, they didn’t have that much. Only one Dreadwing, which I ended up getting along with Primus and Alt. Skids. No other movie deluxes except Brawl. The Voyager Megatrons were all gone. They did have Voyagers Ironhide, Starscream, and Ratchet. I don’t remember seeing Blackout, but I could be wrong.

Marlton Target on Rt. 73 near Evesham Rd. has about 7 G1 Jazzes and around a dozen G1 Starscreams. The Jazzes are hanging up on the pegs in the aisle, while Starscream is located on the bottom shelf of the endcap. There's also 2 Ultimate Bumblebees on the endcap. Go get 'em!

Walmart Supercenter in Turnersville has new Voyagers! I picked up Thundercracker and Nurse Ratchet! I'm sorry, Rescue Ratchet. :)

Here's the rundown was what's left:
Thundercracker - 1 left (There were 2; I got one)
Nurse Ratchet - 0 left (I got the only one)
Optimus Prime - 1 left
Megatron - 1 left

They also have 1 Ult. BB. Go get 'em! They won't last long.

Thanks a million! I picked up 2 G1 Jazz and a 3" Titanium movie BB at Marlton Target.

Also, 2 20th anniversary primes at Berlin WM. There was 1 left.

I then tried to find WM on rt. 70, but couldn't even find it with the aid of my friend who was guiding me with an internet map. WTF??? What the heck was I doing wrong?

I did find a Sears Essentials, and picked up a few Cybertron items there.

No problem. Glad I could help. Ahhhh, the ever elusive Marlton Walmart. It's actually really close to the Sears store you were at, but across the street on the other side! Walmart is hidden behind a bunch of trees. If you don't know where to look, you'll miss it easy. It's near the intersection of Rt. 70 and Locust St. There's a Walmart sign near the road. When I go there I don't use Rt. 70. I'm coming from a different direction. When I'm on my lunch hour from work, I use Locust St. most of the way so it's different for me. I'm really bad with directions, so I hope this helps.

Yep, that helps immensely. I do remember seeing that road(Locust.) At least I don't feel like a TOTAL dumbass for missing it now. Thanks again!

I hit both Kohl's on 73 as well. They were doing pretty well in the deluxe dept. I imagine that you shop like me and don't need things like regular Jazz, wreckage, scorponok ... blah blah.

Nice find on the nurse ratchet (haha) and thundercracker. I still need those myself. Also, dropkick/payload/longarm ... Leader Brawl. Your stores seem to carry a better stock than the ones I'm near.

It's also a shame that I missed your post about the lot of Classics and Alternators you found at the Marlton WM. I could've used another Grimmy and CJ. Also, I am yet to find Skids.

Maybe I'll do another run up your way on Sat. and get some kind of efficient curcuit mapped out.

Another good find was the deluxe classics Prime vs. Meg. @ Berlin WM. They only had the one though. I can't believe those devastators are still there and NOT on clearance.

Marlton Walmart on Rt. 70 has plenty of the new voyagers! 4 Thundercrackers, 4 Nurse Ratchets, 4 Megatrons & 4 Primes. There's also a regular green Ratchet mixed in behind the new ones. No new deluxes or leader figures.

Scored Leader Brawl at the Marlton Target on my way home from work today. There were 2, but I bought one so there was 1 left as of about 4:15pm.

All the G1 Jazzes I saw on Wed. were gone, and the dozen G1 Starscreams are now down to only 5.

I just got back from the Sicklerville Target on Cross Keys Rd. and I scored me a 6" Titanium Cheetor! I got the only one though. They did have one Leader Brawl left down on the bottom shelf. No G1 Jazzes or G1 Starscreams, but I think they had them in the back. No deluxes of any kind.
