They are dealing more with G1 related stuff. I talked to the guy who either owns the place or maybe he's just a manager(?) but he told me that is the direction they are going.

Just checked out Target in Beaverton. They have jungle bonecrusher and overcast. as for the voyagers, they had a few premium ironhides, first watch optimus and incinerator. I wasn't really paying much attention to the exclusives or the leader class but I'm pretty sure they were both premiums as well. I snagged the last 2 stealth bumblebees.

Oregon sightings! (or lack thereof)

This time of year is always rough.

Toy Fair teases us and then it's wait, wait, wait.

I'm so sick of seeing movie TFs everywhere!

TFAW is my only hope this time of year.

MIghty Muggs and plenty of Universe Unicrons at the TRU in Tigard. Nothing really else to note except the endless supply of Universe Cheetahs they seem to have put stock in.

The Fred Meyer on Q st in Springfield is having a massive sale on TFs - everything's marked down at least a buck. Not many hot toys, but I was able to snag some legends (Scalpel, Ejector, Reverb) that I'd had my eye on for a bargain.

TRU by Valley River in Eugene, OR has WFC, HFTD and PCCs in stock. I went there looking for Drift, though, and he wasn't in their shipment. They only got BB and OP.

Target in the Gateway mall in Springfield has the full wave 1 of Generations, I counted 2 Thrusts and 2 Drifts, one of which went home with me. They also had HFTD scouts, I got the only Hubcap and Brimstone. A nice selection of PCCs too, and HA Jazz and Mudflap.

Toys 'R Us in Eugene, Oregon has about 5 Rodimus Minors left, and 2 Ironhides. Also had Thrust and Drift. The new Animated stuff isn't on the usual end-cap, it's mixed in with the movie and Generations Deluxes.

Is that the first sighting of Hot Rod in Oregon? That's awesome! Hey there are way more people on the TFW2005.com sightings for Oregon if you want to check it out. You know so you don't feel like you're talking to yourself :) I just say that because it seems you are the only one to post anything since 2009

Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx in Portland, OR, carrying figures for cheap

Postby iaconportland » Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:32 pm

Hey TF fans, just wanted to follow up on an article I saw on the news page. Someone had posted that they were finding RTS figures at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Ross stores for as little as $7.00. Well, I followed up on that today and found a lot of delightful surprises.

First stop was Marshalls in Beaverton, OR, where I purchased RTS Deluxe Class Perceptor ($6.99) and HTFD Voyager Sea Spray (9.99). They also had ROTF Deluxe Arcee and ROTF Deluxe Bumblebee, both for $7.99. The TJ Maxx next door had pretty much the same selection.

Then I went to the Ross in downtown Portland. There I found an insane deal on HFTD Leader Class Optimus Prime and Starscream, both for $20 each. Unfortunately I didn't pick either of them up because I didn't have the money to spend.

The point is, if you're looking for figures that you missed out on from previous lines, hit up the discount chains like Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Unbelievable deals are to be had.

Thanks for sharing your sightings! I'm merging your topic with the Oregon topic to help other people in your area find the toys. Happy hunting!

Found some weird figures that I've never heard of

Postby iaconportland » Fri Jun 17, 2011 11:37 am

...Went to Big Lots in Beaverton, OR, the other day and they had a box of scout class figures whose alt modes were animals and they came with cyber planet keys. They were in 2010 Transformers packaging but I've never heard of them. I can't recall the names of the figures but one of them was a rhino...Anyone have any more info on this? Also, they had some figures that were designated "Mino-Con" class instead of "Scout" or "Legend" class...

I believe the first ones you mentioned are the re-packaged Cybertron Scout-class figs. Not sure about the others.

Yep, the Rhino one is Cybertron Backstop. Perhaps they'd been released in new packaging - it happened to Cybertron Mudflap when the first movie line came out, though they recoloured him while keeping the same name.
Are you sure the others said 'mino-con' and no 'mini-con'? There were some minicon teams released as part of the Cybertron line too.
