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.

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.

TRU in Southcenter had wave 2 Classics this morning: Mirage, Rodimus, Grimlock, Cliffjumper and Ramjet. Picked up all 5 singles with a few left over. Only had one Grimlock though so must have been one case. Also got in two more Primus'.

I was able to get a Bumblebee at the Marysville WalMart on Thursday. Last one, not a good paint job, but at least I got him. There was no sign of Arcee, but I already passed her up twice. Once at Toys R Us in Lynnwood and once at the Everett WalMart. If I find her again I might pick her up.

All I'm looking for now is a barricade and leader megatron.

Just got back from some rounds.

Everett:

Toys R Us: nothing really.

Target:

Movie Deluxes:
Dreadwing: 2
Final Battle Jazz: 1
Recon Barricade: 1
Dropkick: 1
Payload: 1
Longarm: 1

There was one bumblebee, but some kid got it while I was leaving.

2 Ultimate Bumblebees

2 Leader Brawls -- I almost picked one up, but I passed, don't really know why, but I did. It looks pretty cool.

Lynnwood:

Toys R Us:
Voyager Prime (2) and Megatron (The rest, I think four?)

Diecast Soundwave

Target: one Ultimate Bumblebee

WalMart: Still has the voyagers (Ratchet, Megatron, Starscrea, Ironhide). Two movie deluxes left: Dreadwing and Dropkick. I was thinking about picking up Dropkick since it was 8.97...but I passed.

Well I went to the Everett Wal-Mart and Target for the first time. The WM was pretty much cleane dout...though they had a interesting SWTF 2pack that had Vaders Tie Advanced and a Blue Obi Wan EPIII Jedi Star Fighter... I have never seen or ehard of the 2 pack before.

Everett Target had 6 G1 Jazz figures and a Recone Barricade which I picked up. No Leader Brawl's :MAD: .

Lynnwood TRU had nothing.

Lynnwood Target was pretty much picked clean. All they had was a Long Arm, Dreadwing and a Dropkick. I grabbed the Dropkick figure.

Lynwood WM had nothing.

I passed on the Ultmate Bumblebee's for now. Next paycheck it will be mine.

The hunt for 09BB and Arcee continues....

Well, instead of going to Everett Target I went to Lynnwood since it was closer to other places I needed to go. I got lucky and there were 6 G1 Jazz on the shelves. I picked one up. I also asked them to check if they had any G1 Starscreams in the back with the DCPI number. They had two boxes in the back, the guy brought one out. He thought I was looking for Bumblebee and said "Just Starscream" I picked one up. I believe they were putting the other (3) on the shelf.

Anyone make runs today? I'm starting to slow down on my rounds since I only want a Leader Megatron and Deluxe Barricade.

After I picked up my Bumblebee last Thursday I haven't been as motivated to run around stores anymore.

I'm thinking about stopping my Everett WalMart and maybe Target.
