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.

ToysRus in Allen, TX as of yesterday (1/26/13} had beast hunters BumbleBee, Soundwave and Wheeljack. They had a Lazerback Beast Hunters but I bought it and a Wheeljack. They also have several 1st editions prime figures, vehicon, arcee, starscream, cliffjumper and two fall of cybertron Soundwaves. So if you're in or around Dallas give this store a look. Worker there also told me they have been getting FoC and Beast Hunters in weekly so...happy hunting. P.S. The Wheeljack beast hunters figure is awesome, great look and feel. Til all are one.

Probably to curtail scalping. I had to do the same to get Toys R Us to show me their MP Soundwave stock.

Thankfully, they had several in stock and I was able to get one.

This was at the Village Plaza Toys R Us in Houston, TX off of I-10.

Hi everyone, I'm new to participating in on-line discussions (though I'm a long-time visitor). I was just at the H-E-B on SW Military on Monday (in front of South Park Mall) & they have a nice Toy Section there. They had plenty of Generations Voyager including: SoundBlaster(1), Blaster(2), Sandstorm(1), & Blitzwing(2, I think). No Rhinox or Whirl nor any IDW deluxes, but plenty of Generations data disks (mostly Rumble/Ravage) and Megatron/Chopshop & Starscream /Waspinator. I sometimes get to Walmarts, Targets, H-E-Bs, & Family Dollar (the location on Castroville Rd/ Las Palmas Shopping Center had new Legends packaging G1 Optimus & the variant Bumblebee), around town so I can contribute info. to TF fans here in San Antonio,TX.

I'm going to guess that you've found one by now, but if not Hasbro has Whirl for $19.99 and shipping is about $5 - $6.

I arrived to my new duty station here at Ft. Bliss, TX and decided to check out the Toys R Us in El Paso and found four CW Cyclonus and one legends Skywarp. In addition, they did have one Hot Spot and a couple of Legends Groove. I attached a few photos.

I got lucky again, today at the Super Target here in El Paso, I was able to snag the new CWs Mirage, Sunstreaker and Legends Rodimus. I decided to hit the TRUs again, found new RIDs transformers as well as the MP Bluestreak. I have attached photos of what I saw and bought. Im not into the RID line but whoever is, there is plenty in both stores.

Thought I would make another stop at the Super Target and was able to snag CW's Prowl and Ironhide. Like Mirage and Sunstreaker, there was only one of each on the shelf. Side note they did have two CWs Cyclonus.

Anyone looking for the latest wave of CWs, the Super Target in El Paso has Prowl, Sunstreaker, and Mirage.
Side not the Toys R Us seemed to have more RID transformers in stock, more so new releases possibly.
Later!
