The Walmarts around here are mostly stocked on Cybertron figures(as I'm sure you noticed :P); however, I have seen Voyager Megatron at the Wal-Mart at Walker Springs, and the Target near West Town had several G1 deco Starscreams the other day.

Also, Kohls near West Town has most of Wave 1 and at least one of Arcee, Dreadwing, and Concept Bumblebee.

I'm Slowly picking up cybertron figures. My main concern is Concept BB. He is being very elusive.. I dunno, I guess he is just the only one right now that I'm dying to have, and I'm willing to wait on anything else till they start flooding the shelves again in a few months...

BTW, the walmart on Chapman Highway has/or had a leader brawl yesterday...Pretty nice looking too.

-edit- Just called the kohls, he is already gone :-(

I'm begining to think he really doesn't exist.

Don't be in too big of a hurry to get him. he's cool, but not cool enough to drive 100 miles, or resort to E-Pay. He'll show up, be patient. If nothing else, check Kohls.

Hang in there! He'll show up eventually. :grin:

For the interim, though I'm glad to get my hands on some Cybertron's I missed. If only I could find Cannonball, Shortround, Backpack, Wreckloose, and Mudflap(to name a few), I'd be happy.

Otherwise, I'm kinda done with the movie line. Longarm, Dropkick, and Cliffjumper are really the only other figures I definitely plan on picking up.

I picked up Longarm yesterday. I'm not all that impressed with him, his feet are weird and his gun is screwed to his hand and it's so big that he really isn't that poseable.

I almost got a BB off ebay, tried to justify it by all the gas I've spent running all over town the past few weeks. But I know as soon as I buy one I'll find him in the store and just be even more pissed.

Shortround, huh? There's been one at the Tullahoma K-Mart since the Cybertron line was new! I'm going through there on Thursday on my way to DragonCon. If it's there I'll grab it. I'll send it to you for cost plus shipping.

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.

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!!
