Hello fellow New Yorkers! I saw the Waspinator wave appear a week before Christmas at the Target in Fayetteville, NY. I picked up both Waspinator and Skids. The Walmart in East Syracuse recently received the Vertebreak Prime BH wave. I also spotted a Night Shadow Bee but did not see Prowl, Has anyone in had any luck finding Prime BH Prowl?

Mooncake - TRU Times Square has the wave 3 deluxes in (also the first wave of legends - but no generations voyagers). If you want your Skids, now's the time!

Went to Fayetteville Target and asked an associate to look for the Armada SS Generations wave via DCPI number. The associate stated there were none at the CNY Targets. Victor,NY was the closest Target which had received the wave or at least had some Gen deludes in stock. Cannot wait to find: Scoop, Skywarp, Cosmos, Swerve, and Whirl.

I'm getting excited for Whirl, and all, but I haven't sighted ANY of the new voyagers or legends:

-Voyager Rhinox
-Voyager Doubledealer
-Legends Swerve
-Legends Cosmos

It would really get me down if Whirl showed up without us getting these. Hopefully they'll all hit NYC at the same time... but still. It's been a helluva wait.

I agree, Megatronus. I live in Central New York and I've been checking everywhere for the past 3 weeks and have found no new deluxes, voyagers, and let alone any new legends. If I find any of these I will let you guys know of course. :D

Finally spotted the new generations deluxe wave. Target in Fayetteville had 2 Minicons, 1 Skywarp, 1 Scoop, and 1 SS. No new voyagers and no new legends. My bday is soon so hopefully I'll get them then.

I was at Times Square yesterday; they do indeed have YOTH Prime. I called the Yankees stadium TRU this morning, and they also have it. I put one on reserve there because they have some in the back. Hopefully the boxes won't have dents from the anti theft cables they strap on at Times Square.

you getting one? I'm not sure if I want this anymore. their online price is 129.99 so with 15% off coupon (if it works) it'll be $120 with tax. same price as BBTS I guess. I shall go tonight after the gym and see if I want it holding it in-hand.

I'm definitely getting one. I dig the colors, which don't give him an Optimus Prime feel, but make him seem like a separate, equally cool character. Honestly, that sort of treatment was necessary if HasTak were to get me to pick up yet another iteration of this mold.

You won't be able to get a good look at him through the package window, unfortunately - the anti theft straps sort of close it off, which is a bummer. Their systems have 159.99 as the price, so definitely make sure you price match the online listing if you decide to jump in ;)

Found and bought Generations Swerve and Cosmos in Liverpool, NY, which is just outside of Syracuse. Haven't seen any AOE figures yet here in CNY. Seems like big chain stores in NY state are sticking with that release date of the 17th. Can't wait to find Hound!

Saw some more AOE stuff today at the Target in Cicero. They had 4 voyagers , 2 Evasion OPs, 2 Grimlocks. Also 1 leader Grimlock. I have to say these are looking impressive. Don't have the money to purchase any yet but will do so once the funds are available.

Hi All!

I just returned from traveling abroad the last 3 weeks. Naturally, one of the first things I did to celebrate my return home was hunt for new TFs!

I found quite a bit today at the NYC, East 116th Street Target:
-Generations Legends Cosmos & Swerve
-AOE Deluxe Scorn & Slug
-AOE Voyager Evasion OP & Grimlock

There were plenty AOE stuff & Generations Voyagers/Legends left. Decided to pass on Deluxe Crosshairs & BB. Target also seems to have restocked Marvel Legends Spider-Man figures, so I picked up Spider-Girl & Toxin.

At T.J. Maxx, I spotted the oversized BH Voyagers (OP & Predaking) and a few deluxes. May go back for Predaking; I was just passing through and the wait on line didn't seem worth it.



I'll probably head to a different Target and a TRU in the next day or two, so I'll keep you all posted with any good finds. Hoping to find AOE Voyager Hound & Galvatron soon.
