More MP Screamers at the Phillipsburg WM. It was a mad-house there so I didn't get a good count, but they had several in the TF aisle.

They also had a giant bin full of those BF Cybertron 2-packs.

I was at the Marlton Walmart on Rt. 70 today. They had the new movie Robot Heroes. I picked up Starscream/Armor BB, Ironhide/Bonecrusher and Proto Jazz/Brawl. They also had Prime/Scorps, but I passed on them. They had about one of each set left as of 12:30pm. No Allspark Power yet.

I ran into Allspark Powered Landmine and Camshaft (several of each) at the TRU in Union. Sadly they did not have any Cliffjumper.

The Wal Mart in Hackettstown has one (1) Ultimate BB marked down to $49.00. :shock: The rest of the TF section, however, now houses Star Wars figures :-( Only a couple of Cyber Slammers, 3" titaniums and FABs remain.

I just got back from the Marlton Walmart on Rt. 70. They are still in the middle of doing their reset, BUT they had TWO Nightwatch Primes on the bottom shelf! Naturally, I got one so there's only ONE left as of 12:15pm. They didn't have any other Allsparks. A few older voyagers and no deluxes at all. They did have a fair amount of older FABs and I did see plenty of the Cyber Slammer Cliffjumpers. That's about it.

Truthfully speaking, my nephew wants Ironhide, and I have NOT been able to find him anywhere. I visited 4 Kay-bee's (no assortment what so ever), Kohls, TRU and Walmart (Totowa area) and the shelves are bare, save Dreadwing and a couple of Arcee's. I am going to hit more Targets and Walmarts tomorrow.

I have been kicking myself for passing up the Classics series product. I just picked up Ramjet, and made the classic blunder of not buying Starscream a few weeks ago for 11.99. Now on ebay he is going for 37.99. uggh.

ANYONE IN NNJ KNOW A GOOD SPOT TO GET CLASSICS??


Try the TRU on 46 in Totowa, they're normaly pretty good.

What ever you do, don't mapquest the TRU on Hamburg TPK though. It looks close on paper, but it's a bitch to get to and never has anything.

I'm from Kearny, to those here in North Jersey. I also wanna mention that I travel a gambit from WoodBridge up to Mahawa, and from 440 in JC out to Rockaway.

My job has me running routes so I take advantage!

I only mention it cause hell for the longest I thought I was the only guy from NJ here, but now that we have a thread, I'll be happy to keep everyone posted on what my travels may bring :D

I'm back on line ... for the allspark sightings. I have the Burlington/Mt. Holly area covered.

I recently moved to near Quakertown, PA ... which sucks. It has become SERIOUSLY impractical for me to hit Marlton/Berlin WM's anymore.

SmokescreenGT has seriously hooked (us/me) up with info in the past, but now ... sadly, I travel in the opposite direction.

541 Burlington Walmart had two Ratchets (not rescue) and two Starscream voyagers along with a few cyber slammers (cliffjumper). Also had a leader brawl and leader megs. I picked up one of the ratchets but no deluxes.

Rt 38 Target in Mt. Laurel had a bunch of movie deluxes (no alspark), 2 leader megs, 1 voyager thundercracker, a bunch of scouts including ones that I was not able to find as of yet (skyblast and strongarm) and a few legends battle packs.

If anyone finds those alspark deluxes please let me know because I'm tired of driving around.

Didn't check the 541 TRU since they don't open until 10 this morning.

Good luck!

I visited the Walmart in Newton this morning (I know, it is in the middle of no where) and they had a few Allspark voyagers in stock: 1st Strike Prime, Offroad Ironhide and Evac. Only one of each remain. I did not find any Allspark deluxes there yet.

The Walmart in Boonton also had the same three voyagers - no deluxes.

The Walmarts that I frequent (Ledgewood, Flanders, Hackettstown, Watchung, Union and Phillipsburg) have been rather fruitless as far as TFs go. Ledgewood, however, appears to be getting ready for a reset. I saw an employee re-pegging the empty TF section. I will give it another go tomorrow.

The Target in East Hanover and the TRU in Livingston both had the new Allspark power deluxes (Cliffjumper, Landmine and Camshaft). Each store had a minimum of two each.

Kearny Walmart has multiples of pretty much all the wave one and two movie deluxe figures.

Same goes for Robot Heros, and some new Cyber Slammers too.

They also had a ton of Night Watch Primes. I can't pick him up till next week so please leave me one :wink:

Target on rt46 in FairField had a bunch of early movie toys, and 2 LandMine figures, I left one on the shelf.
They also had the LongArm and Baricade Sceen Battles set.

Target on rt3 in Clifton, more of the same, both also had Voyager IronHide, Optimus Megatron, StarScream and Blackout. RT3 Target also has ThunderCracker.

Walmarts in Seacacus and Kearny, just the same old, all the Night Watch Primes got scooped up.

Now if you'll excuse me, I wanna go play with LandMine before I head out tonight (Liege is gonna get lucky tonight :D )

Walmart Supercenter in Turnersville has the new wave of FABs. They had 1 Sonic Shock Smokescreen, 1 Pulse Cannon Ironhide, 1 Fire Blast Prime and 1 Claw Slash Ramjet. I picked me up Smokescreen, so there's no more of him, but I passed on the others. They also had three Nightwatch Primes and one Offroad Ironhide. Plus a bunch of older deluxes and FABs.

TRU on rt46 Totowa had 1 Evac, it didn't do anything for me in hand so I left it.

Target on rt3 Clifton had most of the FAB repaints, 3 deluxe CliffJumpers, 2 LandMines, and 4 NightWatch Primes, as well as a bunch of other older figs.

Happy Hunting!

Just got back from the Turnersville Super Walmart. They had Voyager Allsparks including: 4 First Strike Primes, 3 Offroad Ironhides, and 2 Evacs (only 1 now, since I bought the other)! No Incinerators, though. They also had plenty of the new FABs, including at least 5 Smokescreens.

The one thing I've noticed about FAB Smokescreen is that the paint apps on him are really bad. I've seen over ten in the stores so far and every one had a problem with the paint job. Even the one I got, which actually looked really good on the front, ended up having some small scratches on the windshield on his back. I couldn't see them through the packaging. Oh, well, Better then the front I guess.

Anyway, the Walmart also had the usual assortment of older deluxes. They had one Concept BB, but some lady bought him right fast so he's gone. No Allspark deluxes yet. Cliffjumper! Where are you!?

I finally found the SWTF AT-AT Driver at the Marlton Target this afternoon. They only had one so I grabbed him. Other than that, it was the usual older deluxes and some Leader Brawls down below along with some of the new FABs. Although, there were no Smokescreens left. Just Prime, Ironhide and Ramjet.

Still no Allspark deluxes! Come one Hasbro! Get with it! :BANG_HEAD:

I found Deep Desert Brawl at the Marlton Walmart today. They only had the one and I got him. Other than that, they didn't have much. A few older deluxes and some new FABs, but they seemed pretty wiped out.

Ok everyone, here are the pointers for today.

TRU on 17 in Paramus, not much but they do have about 6 restocked War Within Prime vs Megatron Titanium 2-packs.

WalMart in Kearny had just a couple 08 BBs, but no joke 10+ Incinerators!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got mine, well worth it!

On a side note, if you care local Best Buys are running sales on the Aqua Teen Box Sets and Movie, Season 5 is still full price though, but hey, I finaly got the movie and season 4(as well as a copy of Beer League for $7, filmed in Lyndhurst, my second home town).

Happy Hunting!

I FINALLY found Allspark Power deluxes! The Walmart Supercenter in Turnersville has 8 Cliffjumpers, 10 Landmines and about 7 Camshafts left after I grabbed Cliffjumper and Landmine for myself. They also had several First Strike Primes, a couple Offroad Ironhides and one Evac. Plus one Nightwatch Prime down below. No Incinerator or Stockade yet.

I found Crosshairs and Storm Surge at the Sicklerville Target on Cross Keys Road tonight. Got one of each. Only one Crosshairs left and no more Storm Surges. Didn't see Warpath, though. Must've sold out earlier in the day.

They also had 2 Nightwatch Primes down below, which is the first time I've seen him at a Target.
