I went to two Walmarts and one Meijer tonight. I saw a single voyager Megatron at Walmart, and two Cybertron Leader class Metroplexs. Got myself a Sunstreaker alternator on clearance, but passed up some Ricochets, which I kind of regret.

Meijer had a few Wreckages, nothing else besides all the role play junk.

Big score today. :grin:

Yesterday, nothing. Today, the very first Voyager Primes I've ever seen. Snagged him up at Walmart in Troy, there were 3 left.

And then we stopped by Kohl's for some clothes for the girlfriend, and I checked the toys. Pretty picked through, but found 76 Bumblebee for the first time since the week the movie came out. w00t.

Plus my custom prime sold. w00t, pretty fair day.

Hello everyone... I'm a new TF collector and would like to meet up with local collectors to do some buy/sell/trades. I have extras of almost every single movie figure inlcuding the g1 repaints and the new Leader Brawl.

I am in the columbus/westerville area and go to Pittsburgh PA every week so let me know if you are interested!

I just posted in the Buy/Sell/Trade forums but I would rather deal with local people.

Here is my thread

Please contact me!~

Weapon: Plasma Beam Rifle
The Target in Avon Lake (Avon Commons) has 3 G1 colored Movie Starscreams....And that's it.

The Wal-Mart in Elyria has a bunch of wave 3/4 deluxes excluding 08 BB and Arcee which people snagged. There is still a few wideloads, recon barricades and a final battle Jazz there.

And I picked up the last Leader Class Brawl from the Wal-Mart at Avon Commons as well.

Getting so tired of the drought around here.

Target in the Graceland Shopping Center (71 and Morse Rd) just put out about 30 g1 Jazz and 30 g1 Starscreams. You will be able to get some as there is a sign that limits purchases... the sign also said they will not check inventory.

Target at Polaris still has 2 Ultimate Bumblebees and 1 Leader Brawl.

Walmart on Morse Road is completely wiped out except 1 Leader Brawl and 10 or so OP 20th Anniversary.

Right off of Little Turtle or 161... North side of Hamilton Rd. I go up there (through Delaware) several times to get to Marion where my family lives. How far up Delaware are you?

I just did my run and the TRU on Morse and 71 just got in their Dropkicks, Payloads, Long Arm's etc... I got there at around 10:15 and the manager said two people already picked up the 08 BBs.

They do have 6 Leader Brawls and 4 Ultimate Bumblebees.

Walmart on morse road has 1 more Rescue Ratchet and 1 more thundercracker. I hid them behind all of the voyager megatrons.

There is also 1 more Ultimate Bumblebee there.

BTW... I don't know if this means they are being shipped again, but I found "LEADER FOR THE AGES" 2 pack 1984 and 2007 Optimus Prime Exclusive set in the Clearance section. The box was all banged up but the figures are perfect...

Dammit! Why didn't you post these in the Toy Sightings section? I always forget there's a Toy Sightings Forum as well...Think there's any chance TRU still has any of those deluxes?

I saw Leader Brawl Over at the St. Clairsville Ohio Toys R Us.There only seemed to be one left on the shelf though there could have been more behind some other stuff. I didn't look that thoroughly.

Guys... I posted this over in the toy haul thread but I thought Ohioans would appreciate this.

FINALLY!!! Got a 20th Ann Prime for a decent price! It was still tagged at $69.99 and I almost just left it there like I did sooooo many times... but something told me to scan it... so I did and to my surprise it displayed $50.00!!! I scanned another one to be sure and yes... $50! I even had a person scan it for me and it came up with $50 with 27 left in inventory.

So no more waiting on the price to go down... go get yours!
