Virginia Transformers sightings

Postby Klunk » Thu Sep 27, 2007 1:13 pm

Wow. I can't be the only collector here in Virginia!

Anyways...

Janaf Wal-Mart in Norfolk has restocked its Movie Deluxes. I got '08 BB, Arcee, Dropkick, Dreadwing, Rescue Ratchet and Thundercracker there yesterday. They had like 20 Dropkicks! They also have Brawl, Bonecrusher and Scorponok.

Target on Military Highway was right empty, but they did have a couple G1 Jazz repaints plus RID Prime and Optimal Optimus Titaniums.

Yeah, three-and-a-half hours is a tad long of a drive to go hunting. lol

Your stores up there haven't restocked yet? We are tripping over stuff down here. I've managed to get caught up with my movie figures over the last week or so.

Found these at Walgreens

Postby Arcee4180 » Thu Nov 08, 2007 6:18 pm

I was at my local Walgreens here in Colonial Heights when my eyes caught the sight of G1 knockoffs of Devestator, Superion, Defensor and Bruticus. They were only 5 a piece so I picked them up.

For those of you who are in the Colonial Heights area, the Walmart has two Masterpiece Starscreams out, one on the shelf and the other high up on overstock. Also, I hear that Walmart will have some kind of sale going on this Friday, Black Friday. Heard it from the inside!!!!

For those of you looking for the Masterpiece Starscream, check into the Wal-Mart on Iron Bridge Road in Chester. They had a half dozen warming the bottom shelf when I stopped by on Thursday.

I didn't get one myself. Personally, I not a fan of Starscream at all, so I'll wait for the Thundercracker repaint.

The Toys R Us in Va Beach, Norfolk and Chesapeake all have the Titanium Grimlocks and Prowls

Also, the Chesapeake Square Wal-mart has some TFA Ultra Magnuses... it looks sweet up close... too bad I'm too broke to afford

The back of Grimlock says that Titanium Primal Prime is out as well. I didn't know they were making that one. Has anyone sighted it yet?
