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.

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.

Hey!

Didn't know there was a local sightings page here... this is great!!!

Renton Walmart this morning:

Final Battle Jazz
Longarm
Payload

also had a lot of Dreadwing. This was as of 7:45am. Someone must have ransacked at 7am. These things sure go fast.

No luck at Southcenter Target.

This is basically my daily route. Looks like they are finally coming out! Anyone here do any cooperative buy/trading around here to help each other out?

Still need:
Voyager Prime
Leader Megatron
Target blue Arcee
Recon Barricade

and the soon to be released repaints of course....

Cool seeing you guys on here! Maybe you've seen me around... I drive a black 2007 Nissan Decepticon, lol!

Happy Hunting everyone!

^Hey I could help you out with the Recon Barricade and Blue Arcee. Let me know if you are still interested. I'll have to buy them today.

Well I just got back from WalMart in Marysville...I finally found Bumblebee...although the paint on the one left isn't too great...at least I have him now.

It is good to see new faces on the signting thread. I think this could also be a nice regional TF chat forum as well.

I will check the Lynnwood WM tonight after I get off work. Hoepfully they wil lstill have some of that stuff.

After finding the 08 Bumblebee I'm just in search of the 70s. Hopefully I can find one soon.

I'm just looking for a leader Megatron now.

I will pick up a Barricade if I can find one again, sadly I passed when I had the chance to get one last Saturday.

I'll probably make some rounds tomorrow morning and will report back if I find anything.

Renton Walmart had more today,only I must have just missed Recon Barricade, DOH!!!

I was able to snag the last Dropkick this morning and there was quite a few Dreadwings, but looks like once again it was ransacked. I went at 8:15am. I guess you gotta get up pretty darn early... Someone must be jacking all the BB '08's and Arcees or something. I just hope they are for collectors and not scalpers.

I was at the Lynnwood Wal-Mart around midnight last night and they didnt have any of Dropkick or Recon Barricade out. All they had were the 4 I mentioned last night. I also hope that BB and Arcee are being grabbed by fans and not scalpers... It is getting annoying not being able to find these 2....

I went to the Lynnwood Target and TRU today, both were pretty picked clean. I got the last Movie Clocker exclusive and I also got Strongarm...but they had plenty left of him. No Air Raid or Elita-1. At TRU I got Titanium 6" Soundwave.

Also don't know if you guys care but at Lynwood Khols they have on sale a Movie style Autobot faction symbol in G1 colors $10.

I am pretty much up to date with my Alternators (only missing Camshaft and Swerve :MAD: ) but it is nice to see Alternators back on the scene again.
