If you're looking for Hun-Gurr, come on down to Wilmington. The other day at my local Wal*Mart they had multiple Hung-Gurrs (no Sinnertwins, sadly).


Bit of a drive for a 6 dollar figure. been awhile but i think wilmington is 3 1/2 4 hours from me. i see sinnertwin about every time i look for new transformers now. really cool little figure.

Finally tracked down a BH Shockwave at the Wake Forest Target on Saturday! None remain.

Also picked up the last Rescue Bot I needed, that being Blades, at Triangle Town Target on Friday. They still had the rest of the newer wave with Boulder when I left. Does anyone else even collect those?

Thanks for the heads up, Scotty!

Anyone living on the southeast coast find Blaster? I've got both of his Data Disks packs, so I might as well get their boss. Having difficulty finding him as well.

Anyone have those DCPIs for Springer and Blitzwing? Please. I cannot find them on Target.com and noone in the stores have them. But someone on the forums has them because they've mentioned locating their's through them. Please share with the rest of us.

Cyber Bishop in the original sightings of Springer and Blitzwing mentioned the DCPI for these guys being 087-06-1378

What you can do is do a local store search for that dcpi, even though it does not show them on the website you can still use it as that is what I did. I called the store and asked about them, gave their names and colors. Sure enough they had both Springer and Blitzwing.

Thanks to both of you guys! Mindmaster especially. I did some calling but it was worth saving the gas. There's like 10 within 20 mins or less driving time from my house. I found one after calling half of them. Now it's back to Marvel Legends. But I have to say that BH Shockwave looks nice in person and I may have to get one. Even though the alt mode isn't all that, his robot mode is probably the best version we'll ever see of him.

Anyone having any luck finding the wave two and three Generations Voyagers? Since I've found the Autobot Data Disks, I really want to finish the set and get Blaster, and I'm also keen on getting the Triple Changers, but like Blaster, I have yet to see any of them.

Went to the TRU in North Raleigh today, not really expecting to find anything new, and sitting there on the shelf waiting for me was.... Skyquake! Got it for $29.99, I didn't want to deal with stalking all the secondary market stores on the off-chance he might show up there for $12. Now I'm finally done with the original Prime line. :D

I'm worried they'll be impossible to find. I only saw Grimlock and Blaster once and there's huge demand for these guys.

saw one blaster that I got and seen a few grimlocks.

I live less than 5 minutes from a target and have started checking it every morning this week, and will probably continue to do so till I find them, if I cant find them by checking every morning some one must be camping out and going in as they open.

Target is probably your best bet for Springer and Blitzwing. None of the TRUs or Walmarts in the Raleigh area have had any Generation Voyagers since they stocked the Grimlock/Blaster wave several months ago. Now it's just random sightings of lonely single Soundwaves or Grimlocks and no sign of any restocking any time soon at those places.

As for Target, the Raleigh area Targets all finally got restocks with the Springer/Blitzwing wave about two weeks ago, and now almost all of the Targets are out of stock again, according to the DCPI listing online. Not sure what the stocking situation really is out there in the Charlotte area, but it's possible that they've already come and gone without you noticing, unless you stalked the Targets like I did to make sure I got my set, or your stores are even farther behind than the ones here in Raleigh and haven't received any stock yet.

Looking at the online DCPI listing, there are Targets in the general Charlotte area with Generation voyagers in-stock, but no way to tell which figures specifically.

It's not so much that I "stalked" Target day in and day out, oh no, costs too much in gas and time. More like, I visited each Target in our area over a course of three days a week or so before they actually stocked Springer and Blitzwing, made mental notes about whether they had any Generation Voyagers or not (Most didn't, a few still had Soundwave), then I kept daily tabs on whether any of the Targets with no stock suddenly showed an in-stock indicator on that DCPI online listing. Of course, this only worked because most of the stores were already out of stock and it was pretty evident from sightings in other states that any new stock showing up would most likely be Springer and Blitzwing.

Also while I was out today, found BH wave 3 at Target in Garner. Picked up Skystalker and Dreadwing. I will wait for BH Ratchet to hit Ross or Marshalls at half price. So far, BH Wheeljack has been the only BH remold I felt was worth the full price rather than waiting for a sale or secondary market store.

Also found Cyberverse commander Shockwave at the Target in Knightdale, still 2 Cyberverse BH Starscreams on the pegs.

I sighted a Springer at The Hickory Target. I left it there, I found mine there two weeks ago. I hid one then and this one looks suspiciously like the same one. Must have been a good hiding spot.
