Does anyone know when the Vehicon troop is coming out? At first I wasn't but after seeing the images and Peaugh's review - I might cop 2 but no more than that.

Peaugh has and always will get figures early.. Normally when I want to find out when figure or wave is coming out I check BBTS and see when they get them. The retail release is normally close to it. I know the wave 2 voyagers are due to come out soon.. I'd love to get my hands on Bulkhead and SS!

San antonio is dry as the sahara..BB's are everywhere and the voyagers are stuck at wave 1 still. I havent been checking TRU on 410 and san pedro at all because thier selection has always sucked. I still hunt at lkeast 3 times a week..

if anyone sees Prime voyager Starscream and Bulkhead in Texas please let me know asap, I've been hunting for weeks now and starting to get a bit frustrated. I'm in Austin and all I've seen is wave one voyagers everywhere. I go hunting as much as possible. I prefer Target because it's cheaper but wouldn't turn them down if I found them at TRU. Definitely NOT paying the jacked up BBTS price! If I don't find them soon I'm going to go nuts. Thanks.

Yeah, I barely bother checking TRU because they have are BB, voyager Optimus and Megatron - at ridiculous price :BANG_HEAD: . As far as figure hunting goes, I've actually had better luck at Walmart at Loop IH-1604(found Arcee there) and Target a few times.

This store has bulkhead in stock for a reasonable price(24) as well as the FE bulkhead which I know went for $30-$40 more at botcon 2012 for $69..They are a very reliable store, I have used them 20+ times and they ship fast and package well..

As slow as distribution is, the slightly inflated rpice is justified with the price of gas and driving from store to store these days..

I ended up ordering RID Bulk and Scream from Amazon for about the same price as TRU last night. And with my discount card, I got both of them for $32 total.

Visited the Beaumont Target & TRU today. Bought the last Vehicon deluxe, Bulkhead and Starscream voyagers, left a Knockout and Hotshot on the shelf.

TRU had a bulkhead voyager and a starscream voyager, but no deluxe figures.

Neither store had any new cyberverse figures :(

Walmarts along 1604 and culebra/potranco are starting to get wave 2 voyagers( Bulkhead and starscream) as well as the targets along the same road.

Avpid TRU at all costs, they barely had any transformer items on the pegs.

I've been to most of the TRU stores in dallas area, picked up arcee, vehicon and terrorcon cliffjumper 1st edition but havent seen any optimus or bulkhead. But I finally got my wheelie GDO generations in mail today. They have him, springer and I believe the G2 megatron on site now for sale as well as fall of cybertron combaticons.

Thundertron's foot is blue and gold but on the box it shows silver blue and gold so i painted his foot silver and keep blue and gold on his foot. and i agree Thundertron is the most awesome figure of all time.

Cooler if his sword would lock in place.

BTW, found one Ultra Magnus and one Thundertron at the Lexington, NC Wal-Mart SuperCenter and bought both. These guys are ringing up $22.96 at the registers yet the shelves still have $19.96 price labels (next to the $22.96 price) for the DOTM Voyagers listed, even when there aren't anymore DOTM Voyager figures. Idiots! Guess what price I've been paying at the register for each Prime Voyager? Yep! $19.96! Too bad the Deluxe figures aren't as easily mispriced.
