Almost all the Wal-Marts in the Beaumont area are getting the ROTF Lockdown, Brawn, and Deluxe Ratchets in stock. BTW, has anyone seen Animated Arcee or Ratchet in any of the Toys'R'Us's?

The lone TRU in San Antonio just stocked up this morning. Grabbed HFTD Ironhide and PCC Searchlight. They had multiples of all four in the HFTD deluxe wave, a few Voyager Ratchets and a couple Payloads. Several of the PCC two-packs, but no 5-packs. Even some Legends Primes and BBs.

Found and bought a Battle Blades Optimus Prime, Seaspray, Banzaitron, Hubcap and Brimstone at a Toys R Us here in Austin, Texas.

The Battle Blades Optimus Prime, Seaspray and Banzaitron I bought were the only ones there.

There were about two of Hubcap and Brimstone left in the store.

A Toys R Us in Harlingen, Texas!

Holy slag, they put a Toys R Us here in Harlingen! And the best part of this is, they are stocked up with TFA Arcee. I had recently gone to San Antonio and had stopped by the store there and all they had was TFA Cybertronian Ratchet. I never would have expected Harlingen, of all places, to have Arcee. The new store is at the Valle Vista Mall in Harlingen. I just got Arcee! I'm so happy. Lol I'm a dork XD but I don't care. It's what makes me so lovable :grin:

News for other collectors in San Antonio. Our lone Toys 'R' Us is moving to a new location, which means they're decreasing their incoming stock in preparation. It's unlikely we'll see TRU exclusives here until after they've moved, a time which the person I talked to was unable to tell me.

HftD Voyager Wave 2 is in Wal-Marts in San Antonio. 1604/Culebra had a couple Banzaitrons, 1604/Potranco had another couple Banzaitrons, and a single Optimus in the hands of a child gleefully skipping past me. Ah well.

Got a HFTD Green Legends Devastator from the Pasadena Toys R Us on 9/9/10. $29.99 and was only one they had out. I think an employee saw them come in and bought all but 1 in a case because there was no location for him on the shelf.

Dude we live in the same area I swear!

I was bummed when they moved that TRU. Every time I go in there the pegs are dry as a bone. I picked up a KUp even though I have one on order from BBTS. Most of the wal marts have that DOTM OP preview scout figgy.

the only things I see in the Walmarts and Targets and the Toy R Us across from the North Star Mall, for appears to be a few Universe Classics, my boy picked up Tracks, I got Jazz, Hot Rod and Cyclonus pack, and a verrry feeewww of the War for Cybertron designs - only seem to see Cliffjumper, Soundwave, and Megatron. Really wishin' I had scooped up Optimus when I had the chance #-o #-o .
There's a center on the other side of the Northstar Mall where this little store dimestore called Tuesday Morning is and they a few knock off Japanese bots like Victory Leo and Star Saber I think, Superions and Bruticus, but I think they're smaller though. Get this the actually 2 of the Animated series characters, Lugg-nut and Optimus (seriously thinking about getting them....)
There is a place on Fredericksburg called Small World Hobby shop, but there nooo telling how much that guy may charge cause he actually look like he has some authentic G-1 figures there.

Animated GRIMLOCK in San Antonio on Fredericksburg Rd Tuesday Morning Store

Motto: "I GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO TONIGHT THAN DIE!"
Weapon: Photon Eliminator Rifle
I didn't pick him up yet but if there any fans of the recently departed animated series - there was ONE Grimlock in Tuesday Morning store on Fredericksburg Rd, the on in between a restaurant and Office Depot in back of the H.E.B. I didn't pick him up because the only figure I'm remotely interested in is Shadow Blade Megatron - the Animated figures just aren't my Kup( :P :P ) of tea.
When you go in you have to look down at the bottom shelf, he's behind, or in between, LugNut. Also there was a knock-off Protectorbots/Defensor further back on the middle with the other knock-off but its behind something, I forgot.



good luck

Third Planet in Houston has quite a few of the current wave of Transformers. They also had some loose G1s that they claim are complete. Worth taking a look.

Well after about 2 hours of cruising around the wal marts in san antonio I have to say that Im a tad dissapointed. they had the pallets out but were not letting anyone dig through the DOTM stuff.. However, along the way on 410 and 151 in san antonio I did see the generations wave 3-4, including wheel jack, warpath, thundercracker and scourge. I did manage to find 1 wal mart that had their DOTM groove on on 1604 and culebra, I scored crankcase and Voyager megs. target will be my next target tmorrow after work.
