I'm not surprised. They never seem to get the newest waves in till late.
Try Sawmill Road. They always seem to be up to date.

I might have to. I was at Wal-Mart again today for some stuff for dinner tonight and they are OUT of movie figures. I mean nothing. All they have is the real gear stuff. They really need to start restocking soon.

I have good news for you. I saw a planogram and asked about it.

This entire region (OH, PA, NY, WV) is due to have their TransFormer section moved and fully stocked by (and on) August 6th.

Some stores will have five (yes FIVE) peg rows of nothing but Deluxes. They're gearing up for the onslaught of new toys. (and old)

No, I was at the one on Morse Rd. Either way doesn't sound like any of them have anything right now. Hopefully they'll get their shipments this week like what's been said and we'll all be able to find what we're looking for.

Never been in the one on Morse Road. It's the one across the road from the BMW dealer at Easton, right?

They need to get something soon., with the new waves coming, they will miss out on sales.

That's the one. I was up there today for a few things and checked the toys section. Looks like they're getting ready to restock the next wave. They had a lot more space and pegs/tags for movie toys labeled for deluxes, voyager, etc. Much more than what they had a few days ago. Looks promising.

I was also at the Target at Easton. They've moved the toys section around to near the main entrance. The Transformers section there also has a lot more pegs allocated for movie figures than the last time I was there. Shouldn't be long now until they all get new shipments.

I'll have to check it out. I'm goign to Easton this weekend.
If you ever make it to Delaware, the Wal Mart on 23 just restocked. They have Robot Replica Megatron, Barricade, and Bumblebee.

:grin: Score! 08 Bumblebee and Arcee deluxes at TRU in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. I picked them up at noon today on my lunch hour. It looked like everything was just stocked. The bad news, there was only one other 08 BB besides the one I bought. They also had voyager megatron and optimus prime.

I stopped at Target right before, and saw the same amount of nothing there that I have for the last 3 weeks at every Target, TRU, and Wal Mart I've been to within a 20+ mile radius (Akron, Canton, Wadsworth, Medina, Macedonia). I even had been going to the Medina Target almost every day for over 3 weeks and seeing only empty shelves.

So Ohio Transformers fans, it looks like the drought is finally ending!

If you can find that 2nd Bumblebee, or another one, PM me and I'll fully reimburse you for it, or even come pick it up. (I'm just over the OH border in PA.)

I have a feeling that 08 BB is already gone by now. I thought about buying it and selling it for cost (plus gas if I delivered it), but it has a thread of paint going across the driver's side window and thought someone might not be happy about that. I used to live out by Garrettsville, and Eastwood mall used to be my shopping area. Have you checked at Kraynak's? It seems like an out of the way place that might have them that most wouldn't think to look at. Also, it might be a good idea to check toys r us as early as you can every day until they appear. It seems like if they are showing up at one, the others probably aren't far behind. Mayfield Heights TRU might have been the first to get them because it is a NICE store.

Oh that's a shame. I'd have taken it, even with the windshield as is. Hmm.

I actually live about seven miles from Kraynak's. They're sitting on two cases of wave one.

I've checked Boardman, Niles, and Warren. Nada, zip, zilch.
Especially at TRU. They haven't even gotten the Bumblebee case in yet, at either TRU.

Apparently Kohl's has been getting new figures in stock. I went to the one on Sawmill Rd. and they didn't have any BB's or Arcee but they did have 1 Dreadwing. I moved on to the Kohl's on Olentangy River Rd. and ta-da! They had the whole case. I bought both BB's and Arcee but left the Dreadwing. If you live in Columbus or the surrounding areas there's two Kohl's on Morse Rd. One across from where Northland mall used to be, and another across from Stoneridge Plaza in Gahanna. Check there, they might have 'em.

I was finally able to find the 08 Bumblebee today! It was at the Kohls store in Gahanna. They only had two left. I went ahead and picked them both up. I've seen enough people on here that are looking for them I figured someone would want him. I would rather see him go to someone on this board then for someone to sell on ebay. If anyone in the Columbus area is still looking for him send me a PM.

Kohl's is the way to go, I've been to 4 so far and found the Classic Camaro Bumblebee and got 2 '08 Bumblebees (one for my 4 year old).

Kohl's Sawmill -- Had multiples of the following... Swindle, Brawl, Bonecrusher, Jazz, Arcee.. and one or 2 others that I didn't recognize. Also, some various of the smaller lines, etc.

Kohl's S. Hamilton -- Had multiples of the following... Jazz, Barricade, Bonecrusher, Brawl.. and a few others. Also, some various of the smaller lines, etc.

Kohl's Morse Rd -- Had **ONE** '08 Bumblebee left (last night, as of 8:30 pm). Also, Bonecrusher, Jazz, Barricade, Brawl and one or 2 others that I didn't recognize.
Also, some various of the smaller lines, etc.

Kohl's West Broad -- Had one of each of the following... Swindle, Jazz, Bonecrusher, Brawl. That's it.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Also, as of 6 PM on Monday (8/13) the Target on Trueman Blvd (in Hilliard) had **ONE** Ultimate Bumblebee. I was going to update the sightings page and tried to add that location (still not listed there though) so I thought I would pass this along.. still had one as of last night.

Niles and Boardman Kohls have nothing but Cyber Slammers. And they knew exactly what type of figure (Deluxe Class) that I was looking for.

I'm getting so sick of this sh*t.

Normally I wouldn't bump a thread like this, but our fellow collectors need to know.

I called the Niles and Boardman Kohls again, and Niles continued to be a wash, though I do believe they have at least one Bumblebee, considering they have almost 10 cases of Deluxe Figures (79 figures to be exact!) but Boardman does indeed have '08 Bumblebee, Arcee, and Dreadwing.

They aren't on the shelves, they're in the back stockroom.
You need the UPC (Kohls will work, but if you must resort to it, use the one on the package itself.) and when you get a hold of the Children's department, tell them exactly what you're looking for. The new Camaro, not the classic (the woman actually knows what you're talking about too!) and they will hold it for you at Customer Service in the back of the store.
