Motto: "You don't know because you can't see me. Then you are dead."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
Anyone on here seen any of the Generations Shrapnel with Reflector? He was supposed to hit central Pa right before the movie stuff, but I never saw him. In fact, the last thing I saw before the movie stuff clogged up all the pegs was 1 Cosmos (which I bought) and a Couple Swerves.

On another note, I would be willing to set up a Pennsylvania meet up if anyone is interested. We did a few of them a couple years ago and they were a good time. If you are interested, PM me and I can get things rolling.

Anybody in Pittsburgh have places they'd recommend to find bots? I usually go to the Target in East Liberty. I've tried a few comic shops, but every one I've seen so far has had a very limited and usually overpriced selection.

Transformers don't seem to be big around here in comic shops. Is hit or miss at rides in the strip district, sometimes they have something used worth buying, but more often than not they have nothing.

Most stiff I pick up is tru, target, or eBay anymore.

Wow, I used to live in East Liberty. Anyway, I usually go to Target and Toys R Us for my Transformers fix. Prefer to stay away from Walmart. Low prices, but doesn't carry much of what I want. There's a comic shop up in the Pittsburgh Mills Mall, but it certainly is a long drive from East Liberty.

I recently asked my local comic book shop in Horsham about TF's and he said they'd cost too much to get. Which I guess is why the comic book store in Plymouth Meeting Mall wants $35-$40 for Voyager Generations figures.

Nope.

I'm right outside of Philly and have yet to see a single figure from that wave at retail. I'd be livid if I hadn't bought 2 Scrapnels from BBTS a couple months ago. But I didn't think Tailgate was worth the shipping quality wise so passed on him thinking he'd eventually turn up at retail.

Now here we are with Cliffjumper and Nemesis popping up at my local Target skipping that Scrapnel wave completely.

So I may just have to bite the bullet and look to BBTS or HTS when comes to must have Legends and deluxe figures moving forward judging how retail has been acting lately.

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
Erie and Meadville, PA:

Erie Target:
Rescue Bots Epic Optimus Prime
Boulder & Doc Greene
Optimus (turns into a T-Rex @ $10 pricepoint)
Heatwave the Rescue Dino
Build Your Own Rescue Squad bots
Electronic Optimus Primal
Boulder Titan figure
Silver Knight Optimus, both the One-Step and the Deluxe/Voyager Grimlock 2-Pack
Tankor

Everything else is more of the same, same, same. :(

Erie Toys R Us:

AoE Wave 2.5 Deluxes
No Masterpieces ( :( )

Q-Rex and Turbo Falcon Megazords, several of each, 3 of the Green Ranger's Dragon Dagger, MMPR Legacy item.

Meadville K-Mart:

Leaders are on clearance already. (They have no interest in carrying Jetfire, sadly and their planogram has no room for him.) ... :(

Meadville Wal*Mart:

Wave 2.5 x 3 (no joke!) I haven't seen that many Lockdowns at one time. Crazy.
Wal*Mart exclusive AoE packs, singles, 2-Packs and 3-Packs. (Quite a few, actually.)

Nothing new for PR in either Meadville store. In fact, PR has been removed completely from their K-Mart.

Still, good news for those looking for the good stuff!

First time I've seen Shrapnel - at Walmart Robinson, just last night, with two Tailgates. I like it, but I've got some planned buys 1st, and an unplanned Big Lots find - $5 Cyberverse BH Optimus.

The Generations waves have been progressing unusually slow in SW PA. Tankor, Rattrap, WFC/FOC Skywarp, are currently it, and there seem to be a few at each Walmart and Target here.

Found AoE Deluxe Snarl at Target in Langhorne/Fairless Hills. They had Hot Shot too, but only one of each, and I bought Snarl.

Speaking of Skrapnel, I forgot to post it, but I found him and Tailgate at the Walmart by Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem a week or two ago.
