On Friday at the Lynwood Target I found pretty much empty shelves, however I did happen to find the target Exclusive Skyblast (Energon Repaint). There was only him and no sign of the rest of Exclusive Wave 2 but they had to have been there. Also they had the T.E.C.H series and Robot Replica's as well. I passed on those and just grabbed Skyblast.

I saw one voyager Ratchet, few Protoform Optimus and Starscreams at the Everett Walmart.

The Everett Toys R Us also has some Fast Action figures:
Ratchet
Optimus (1 left)
Jazz...I think they had most of them besides Bumblebee.

All this was yesterday.

Any signs of a deluxe 70s Bumblebee?

Hey welcome to Seibertron.com BB.206! Nice to see another Seibertronian from Wa on the site.

The Lynnwood Wal-Mart looks like they might be putting out the new boxes very soon, they just put out the 2 pack for Real gear and the new Real Gear figures. I was able to snag Meantime and the Game Controller Autobot.

Also at the Lynnwood Target they were pretty much picked clean EXCEPT for 2 of the G1 Jazz (movie Jazz repaint) figures. Ofcourse I snagged one....

I snagged a High Score 100 from the Lynnwood Wal-Mart early Thurs A.M. Meantime was the only other new Real Gear at that time but they must have just set everything up and re-arranged since the huge "Transformer" arch sign was above what is now the Barbie aisle.
Glad to see that the Lynnwood/Everett region is covered as far as keeping an eye on new stuff. I'll let folks know about some of the other "hot spots" as I come across them since my business takes me to Bellevue, Issaquah and Monroe on a fairly regular basis and I have had good luck in those areas when other NW spots are "dry". (Bellevue TRU and Fred Meyer and the Issaquah Target store are almost always very well stocked)

I did check out Northgate Target...they had nothing.

I went to Target, Toys R Us, and Wal Mart in SC. Apparently they were stocked today...but they were cleaned out by the time I got there 5pm.

I also decided to check out Northgate Target and Toys R Us. They really didn't have anything either.

I'm going to make some rounds today.

My rounds for today:

Lynnwood:
Wal Mart: Nothing as mentioned above.
Target: See above
Toys R Us: I went 10 mintues before they opened. Second in line, they restocked...but only had one 08 Bumblebee, wasn't able to pick it up. They did have two voyager Ironhides (picked one up) and one Starscream.

In terms of Deluxes they had one battle damage Jazz (I gave it to a little kid), two Barricades, a Brawl and Arcee.

When I left only Barricade and Brawl were left.

Everett:

Toys R Us: nothing
Target: Nothing
Wal Mart: Voyager Ractchet and Ironhide, along with Deluxe Optimus and Starscream (Protoform)
Fred Myers: Nothing
Costco: They did get in the Leader Primes, but they're out now. I was able to get the last one.

I Might be making some runs tomorrow if anything is near by. Will report back if I see anything.

Anyone locate a 70s Bumblebee yet? Any leader Meagtrons or Voyager Primes? Or any signs of Jetfire?

I went to my fiancee's work to bring her dinner and decided to check out the TRU in Northgate and the WM in Lynnwood....I feel like a waste of time. I am going to give up for a few days and try again. It is pretty good that they are sold out of a lot of these figures, that means the brand is very popular right now..which means more profit for hasbro which means continuation of the Transformers future is pretty bright. I remember a few years back they were having a hard time selling them.

Just wish I could find some :P Nothing but Real Gears, Cyber Slammers, Unleashed and the other gadgets.

HELLO! brand new to the forum meant to join a while ago but never got around to it. i asked the guy at fred meyers in kirkland that runs the toy dept. he said that he won't be recieving any '08 bumblebees or the other deluxes till like mid october which really sucks or i find really hard to believe. anyway in regards to the leader megatron i've seen a like 1 or 2 at the target in factoria but that's off and on but i'll keep posting as to any new development!

According to Target's online Web site, they should have some deluxes at the Northgate location...but I just called them and they said there aren't any available...maybe they're not yet on the floor?

I would stop by...but I have to work until 4:30pm today, so it's not likely I'll get anything.

I might make some quick rounds tonight...hopefully they'll be successful.

The Issaquah Target had 2 Titanium Blackout (3") figures and some Tech Gear. Nothing else new. If you happen to be after a Voyager Megatron, I would recommend TRU's Bellevue location as they had 22 on the shelf. Oh, and 2 "Meantime" figures. Everything else was same old stuff and none of that was deluxe class. Oops, almost forgot, if anyone is interested in picking up the store exclusive 2-packs,
there were at least 6 Desert Attack Blackout/Scorponok sets on an endcap. And no electric race-car sets yet. It's looking like meager picking so far but the week is just starting.

So Bellevue TRU has the Voyager Megatron? Hmmm... I will maybe have to try and hit that up tomarrow before I got to work in the afternoon. I was going to try and go to Kicks-Hobby but I might skip it to get Megs.

Thanks for the tip.

Well thanks to T-Macksimus I scored a Voyager Megatron at the Bellevue TRU. They had 7 and now have 6 left. Thanks again for the tip. They pretty much had nothing else there.

Everett Wal Mart still had two Ultimate Bumblebees as of 6pm today. Let me know if you want to pick it up. I can get it for you.

Still in search of any Bumblebee Deluxes along with Leader Megatron.

First I have to start off by saying "Praise Primus, I Finally Got A Client To Pay Me Something!!!"
Now that that is out of my system, I did a little more backtracking of areas to see if stuff was restocked but was only able to scare up the Target exclusives for Clocker and Skyblast at the Lynnwood Target(thanx ACS) and 2 of the last 3 Real Gear that my kids and I need to finish the set (only missing Nightbeat now) at the Lynnwood TRU. HOWEVER...they did have 3 of the selectrix Race sets in stock for $59.99. Unfortunately, my check was meager (hence the "Scout" size stuff) and I have serious space issues to contend with.
For those of you with neither cash nor space issues, better snag 'em quick. Just send me the pics. of it all set up so I can live vicariously through someone else till I get back into my own place again and set one up in my living-room 24/7.

Man I need to check to see if I can get a Clocker and then there is also Armorhide and the other Skyblast repaint I need to get. Thanks for the heads up TM.

Anyways the Lynnwood Wal-Mart got like 20 cases of Voyager Wave 3.07 (Megatron, Starscream, Ironhide and Ratchet) so if you need any of those guys go to the Lynnwood Wal-Mart.

Oh they also have the Robot Heroes Movie figures. I got the Bumblebee and Baricade set (BB for my fiancee and Baricade for me).

Had to swing into the Everett Wal-Mart at an ungodly hour this morning due to a memory lapse last night, and just happened to check again (last night looked like utter chaos in the toy section) and found 1 ea. of the new sets of Robot Heroes. I snagged Prime & Blackout, left the other sets hanging. I have no jobs scheduled today, just picking up apps. for normal 9-5 work so if anybody needs a runner to snag small items and then re-imburse, I'm game. So long as I don't have to go near I-5.

Went to Lynnwood Wal Mart this morning. They still have some of the voyagers left over and they have movie deluxes.

I saw the following:
Final Battle Jazz
Recon Barricade
Payload
Dropkick

They had a good amount...sadly no Bumblebees. I believe I was slightly late because I saw a guy pull out looking happy with all the bags he had.

I forgot to add, they had dreadwings as well.
