Both places until the American League Playoffs, the Pistons play the Cavs, or OSU takes on U of M...then you have to decide. :-? :P


Yes, that U of M/OSU game gets pretty nasty at my house...what with my wife being an OSU fan and me wearing maize and blue just to be difficult... Oh well, we each get a kid to dress in whatever color we want, too. :)

Thanks for the heads up about Wal-Mart on Georgesville rd. I live in Gahanna but it's not that far of a drive if they still have some. Might have to check over there today.

The Wal-Mart on Georgesville rd and the one at Tuttle mall both have Dreadwing and Arcee but no BB's. Also checked out Toys R Us and Target again with no luck.

Hmm...figures. I must have gotten there just after a restock. Sorry for your drive for nothing. :? None of the other Wal-Marts around me have any of the newbies--I'd expect them to start hitting soon. I'll keep you posted if you're still looking.

Toy's R Us in Elyria has 74 BB and Leader class Prime and Megatron. I took the last Barricade. Couldn't find any 08 BB's in the area and Target only had scout class Arcee

In between Cleveland, OH and Erie, PA is where I'm located (good ol' Geneva), so I hit up everything from one to the other frequently. Tonight, in Madison, I picked up Arcee and a second Classics Optimus Prime (to turn into Nemesis Prime). I didn't see any '08 Bumblebees and I passed on the lame Dreadwing. I'm going to take a trip out to Willoughby Target tomorrow on the off chance they'll have any Ultra Magnus vs. Skywarp packs left...but I'm doubting it.

I live in Greenville PA, about 15 miles from the border and 25 from Niles/Warren. The Wal-Mart in Hermitage PA is the only one in this region to have the newest wave of Deluxes...yet. I called all the TRUs, Targets, Wal-Marts in the Youngstown region and none of them had Bumblebee or his fellow case mates. Sad thing is, the toy associates knew what I was talking about...looks like they've been through hell with this one so far.

One woman at Wal-Mart (Austintown) said they haven't received a case in about 2 weeks and their pegs are still full with figures everyone already has.

Nice to see that someone's in Elyria and the Ashtabula area. I have family in Lorain, and I do a bit of shopping in the 'Bula area, so now I can get the 411 on stock without having to waste the gas. :D

The new wave is starting to trickle into Toledo. The WalMart on Airport Hwy had 1 Dreadwing that I snatched up.

I had a long, but uneventful day yesterday.

I went to:

1.) Niles Target (Nothing.)
2.) Niles Toys R Us (Nothing new, movie related. War Within Titanium 2-Pack and Reissue Soundwave in stock, and in multiples of each.)

3.) Warren Wal-Mart (So bad that there's not only nothing, they have to come up some just to hit it on the meter.)

4.) Boardman Target (F.A.B. Frenzy x2)
5.) Boardman Wal-Mart (yet again, *JUST* missed the Bumblebee figure by one evening. One Arcee, and one Dreadwing remain.)

6.) Austintown Wal-Mart (yes, I know, I backtracked...by accident. Won't do that again.) (Two Bonecrushers, and that's literally it for Deluxes. They had more role play and computer items than they did actual figures.)

So, the wave is slowly starting to appear in this neck of the woods, but it won't be returning too soon...I saw what came in for the night shift....WV 1 R2 ('77 Bumblebee/Swindle case!) and 3 of them!

*sighs*...this is getting ridiculous. It would be so much easier if Amazon would just put the damn thing up on their site, but no...

I was just at the Target & K&B Toys at Easton and they were bone dry. Saddest movie selections I've seen yet. That Target normally has a good selection but it doesn't look like they've been stocked in a while

I was at KB at Easton on Friday, and all they had then was about 10 movie Jazz, and a few Legends Megatrons.

Checked the Toys R' Us and Wal-Mart near me yesterday as well. TRU moved their transformers section back to the rest of the figures. Nothing new there. Wal-Mart was empty just like the other store I was at. You would think they would have restocked by now.

Which TRU in Columbus did you go to, Sawmill, or Morse Road?

Went to Target at Polaris near Columbus, all they had were the movie repaints of Energon toys, and the titianum movie Prime 3 pack.

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.
