It looked like things were going to be picking up, but now it looks as unstocked as it ever has.

Locus Knoxville:

Walker Springs has a decent assortment of Cybertron figures; they also have a few wave 1 Voyagers and Voyager Megatrons.

Turkey Creek has Thundercracker and had several Rescue Ratchets. They also had at least one Sunstreaker in the alternators pile.

Thundercracker, recon Barricade, Longarm, Dropkick, Payload, Final Battle Jazz, Arcee and Voyager Megtatron showing up at several Wal-Marts, usually just one or two cases.

Target in Clarksville had an entire endcap of G-1 Jazz as of Friday.

Sweet maybe Dropkick and Longarm will be making it over here soon.

There is a dropkick at the Sevierville Kmart, along with a payload and dreadwing.

Knoxville:

Found a Meantime at Clinton Hwy Wal-Mart. He's the ONLY new figure I've seen in weeks, though the Target near Downtown West now has several Voyager Megatrons.

Knoxville:

TRU near West Town has a new shipment of Wave 2s. Several Longarms, Arcees, FB Jazzes, Dreadwings, and Payloads, but no Dropkicks. There was also one Concept Bumblebee.

I'll be heading to Clinton Hwy. Wal-Mart later to pick up the Longarm I ordered; I'll edit this if they've restocked as well.

Edit: Wal-Mart has a slew of Wave 1 deluxes. No voyagers though.

There are too many Transformers to list around here now! Looks like the shortage is over.

I'll limit any further sightings posts to only rare or unusual stuff, like U.S. MP Starscream, or classics like Starscream/Megtatron.

w00t! Same here...though I still haven't seen any sign of Voyager Prime. Hopefully he'll show his grill by the end of the month.

Voyager Prime was the only one I had not seen around here, but he's started to show up at several Wal-Marts this week. Looks like there's two primes per case. There's usually 2 primes and a couple of other voyagers like Megatron and Rescue Ratchet that show up over night.

He'll pop up soon, keep looking.

Hi, I'm in the Knoxville area and new to the forum. I'm just getting back into TFs since the good old G1 days. I'd forgotten how much fun this was!

I was at Suburban Center TRU today, and they had the payload and dropkick movie figures out the wazoo, Ult BB too.

I've gotten all the Classics and Masterpiece figs, but I completely missed out on the Alternators line. Does anyone around the K-ville area still carry them? Obviously, I can pay through the nose on ebay, but are there any other local stores (or online retailers) that have any at reasonable prices?

Glad I found this community!

Welcome to the forum, and be warned:

SEIBERTRON CONTAINS NUTS!!

*ahem*

Anyway, Alternators. The only store I've seen them at consistently is Wal-Mart, and they generally only have Ravage(XK version), Rumble, and possibly Skids. However, I've on occasion found Ricochet and Sunstreaker, but I haven't seen them for a while.

eBay and online stores are probably going to be your best bet at this point.

Good Luck!!

Thanks, I'll have to make a run to Turkey Creek WM and check their stock.

I'll be on the lookout for the nuts, but who knows, as much as I've been spending on toys lately, I might be one of them!

While you're there looking for Alternators, would you mind letting me know if you see any Voyager Prime's lying about? He's the last Movie fig I need to complete my roster. 8)

No problem. Voyager Prime movie fig. It's on my watch list!

Edit: I was down at the Rockwood WM (don't ask), and the only large figures they had were Brawl and Megs. No Alternators either, but they did have the WM exclusive Marvel Legends 2-packs :)

Nope, still looking. Give us a shout if you see them, I'll do the same.

Man I've called pretty much every walmart around here and keep getting the standard "its a non replentishable item, we have none in stock and none on order, we cant order any, blah blah blah."

Has anyone found a walmart that is even carrying him yet?

Negative. I've seen 20th MP Optimus, Primus, and Leader Brawl out the wazoo, but no Starscream.

No Voyager Prime, either.

No signs of MP Starscream in East TN. There haven't been any sightings anywhere in the area, NC, VA, nothing so far!

I searched Ebay for items within 200 miles & got 0. I'll bet we have another week or so before they start hitting the East coast.
