I live in Upstate NY. Syracuse to be exact. We just started receiving wave 3 earlier this past week. I have seen Knock Out at Target once, and a decent stock of Hot Shot at Walmart. I have not seen a Vehicon at retail as of yet. I am really hoping I find him tomorrow. Hopefully you will see some of Wave 3 asap! Good luck! :BOT:



I'm a Long Islander. Saw Starscream Once and picked him up, same with Knockout. I have yet to see them ever again. Saw them both and Bulkhead at Targets though. I haven't seen Vehicon yet. I wish they didn't short pack him.

Upsate I think is getting Jipped. I've only seen one Voyager Starscream, and only the Dead Ends. Anyone else near Rochester seen anything?

Nothing but BB and the scarce Wheeljack or Cliffjumper in Albany area it seems. Got tired of looking so ordered Knockout from Hasbrotoyshop last night. If anyone near me is interested I do have one each FoC Optimus, and Jazz to sell/trade.

I found FOC Shockwave and Jazz as well as Optimus Prime at Toys R Us on Sunrise highway. I picked up Shockwave and Jazz, but decided to wait on Prime since there are tons left.

I have yet to see Airachnid or Vehicon anywhere in Nassau. Hopefully they get here soon.

Picked up FOC Shockwave and Masterpiece Thundercracker earlier in the evening at the White Plains Toys R Us. There were at least 2 more of each available.

They also had a healthy amount of FOC Optimus and Jazz.

So, back home now. Cheers for all the replies :) Picked up FoC Prime and Shockwave, and Trilogy Prime as well as some MLP and Dark Knight stuff. Then headed to Image Anime and got the SDCC Cliffjumper, and an MP11 Starscream, who unfortunately has the red and white stripe missing from his right wing :(
And damn, I had no idea MP Thundercracker was available! Otherwise I wouldve picked one up seeing as he's cancelled in the UK :'(

For those that live in NYC and is still looking for MP Thundercracker, the Toys R Us in Time Square have them in stock. When I left there tonight 9/3/2012 they still have about 5 of them on the shelves. And they seem to be running some kind of deal/discount because mine only came to about $64.00 after tax. Good luck!

Saw that price tag before, I think it was actually for masterpiece rodimus, as u mentioned. The item number should not be 787681.

Yes it's that's normally true, however when I was there a couple of weeks ago the MP TC's price was $69.99 and there was some sort of discount at checkout. I got my TCs for about $64 each including taxes which I was very happy about.

Don't if he's been out for a while or not, I tend to ignore the Cyberverse thanks to their $10 price, but I found this dude hanging around in Walmart when I was visiting peeps in the southern part of the Hudson Valley, NY

Image

He's the first I've seen, though as I mentioned before, I tend to ignore the class scale.
