Motto: ""Spider-Truck, Spider-Truck...""
A Family Dollar in Bedford near Fort Worth has the Transformers: Universe Omnicons and Terrorcons on sale for $5 a piece.

A Walgreens or CVS in the Louisville area has a select number of Movie transformers.

Albertsons and Walgreens carries a ton of Cybertron scouts.

A Toys R' Us on Pipeline in Hurst near the North East mall has a ton of Transformers: Universe Optimus Primals

Brawl, Wreckage, and Protoform Starscream are all commons in the Bedford/Hurst area. Bonecrusher, surprisingly, is rare.

The Fry's Electronics on Olympus off of 635(In Dallas) has a whole palette of 20th anniversary primes with a palette of Alternators next to it as well as Movie Prime and Megatron.

In Houston

The Toys 'R Us off of Westheimer and Voss -ish has at least five Titanium 6" War Within Optimus Prime and Megatron two-packs.

Fry's off 59 and Wilcrest has a lot of Alternators. From what I saw, it was mostly (if not completely) composed of Ricochet, and Skids.

Same here in Bedford, as well as KO Optimal Optimus, Dragon Megatron, Transmetal Rat-trap and other BW, Insecticons, Predaking, and some parts of Bruticus and Devastator.

I'm going to suggest that everyone check out their local Big Lots.

I feel like the only person who updates this thread...

That same Walmart in Hurst now has a bunch of Classics Deluxes including Rodimus, Grimlock, Cliffjumper, Mirage, and a conehead I can't remember the name of; Classics Voyagers Jetfire and Optimus Prime, and the minicon teams. They also have three alternators. All of them are on clearance.

They also just got in Voyager Ice Megatron and every other old Voyager along with the real-gear 2-packs and Star Wars Obi-Wan/Darth Vader 2 packs.

new to this forum, but been lurking a while. :grin: There aren't many people in my area, but just the same....

Abilene has nothing..... and I mean nothing. Anywhere, and everywhere that transformers could be is bare except for a spattering of robot heroes at one Walmart.

going to Lubbock tomorrow so I'll report what I see there.

Lubbock has a little to offer.

Kohl's had a few movie deluxe figs. 2 bonecrushers, 2 brawls, two Arcees, one swindle.

TRU had most of the movie LOCs, cybertron deluxes, movie screamer and ironhide, two primus without unicron head, optimash prime, and blasters.

Target was wiped except for wave one real gears, and titanium Cheetor and Fallen (wish I had picked him up now :( )

Walmart was bare as well.

hope that helps any Lubbock area people.

Sorry to hear that. I had heard such good things about the fallen figure too. Ya I live out in the middle of nowhere. so I split my searching between Abilene, Lubbock, and Wichita Falls. lol. Hopefully Kohls will get the next wave in.

Checking Stamford Wal mart later. not hopefull, but you never know....

If there's none on the shelf there might still be another case in the back. there was a leader Brawl today. not sure were he came from since there wasn't any on todays truck that i saw. I think he's just taunting me since payday isn't till Friday.

Got Leader brawl today at Abilene Walmart on Southwest Dr. They had another, but a guy with a cart full of hot wheels was eyeing him pretty good.....

They also had about 6 Slammers Classic BBs and a couple of real Gears.

Sam's has a whole pallet of the Jazz/Bonecrusher/brawl 3 packs.

and Stamford Walmart had a couple of Bonecrushers. (I'm sure noone cares for such a small town, but it was on my way back from Abilene, and I had to stop by anyway)
