There only seemed to be one left on the shelf though there could have been more behind some other stuff.

Weapon: Wrist-Launched Heat-Seeking Missiles
If anyone is still looking for PRiD Soundwave up at the Highlands, Walmart had two out and Target had one out.

Besides that, there's nothing really special to report. There was a Cyberverse Arcee around too at Walmart. I didn't get it. I only grabbed Wheeljack and Optimus from Walmart and Megatron from Target. Surprisingly, Walmart had no Powerizer Megatrons.

I've found the Airachnid wave 4 times in my area, plus the playsets. It is bone dry everywhere else.

I picked up Fall Of Cybertron Shockwave and Fall Of Cybertron Jazz at Magic Mart in Teays Valley, WV, 2 days ago. I checked Walmart, Target, and Toys R Us in the Huntington area and none of them have the FOC toys yet.

Saw the first 3 FOC at the Barboursville Toys R Us today, but they were $15 each. No thanks, TRU.

Regular price and what all deluxes will cost soon in every store (maybe not Wal-Mart but could happen there too). Sucks but it was announced at SDCC it's coming.

I might have to drop out of collecting if the prices go up much more. I've already stopped buying comics because I could go broke trying to keep up with all that I like to read. Oh well.

I may too so you're not alone there. It's a crock of crap is what it is. "We'll raise deluxes and shrink them over oil costs BUT voyagers stay the same price". Makes no sense whatsoever and couple that with the recent idiotic choices of not even giving us multiple toys the rest of the world sees I'm not going to be to put off doing it.

I might have to start just buying Masterpiece toys and that's it. They're way expensive as it is so it might not hurt to save the money. I never got into the movies so I didn't buy any of those figures.

Got a Battle Ops BB for the low price of 10$. :APPLAUSE: On a sad note WM in Logan has raised deluxes to 15.47 now and the Voyagers are 21.97 which I thought there wasn't an increase for. :sad: Looks like a few of us will be scaling back if this keeps up. :-x

In my travels around WV, I've found that rural Rite Aid, Magic Mart, and CVS stores have a lot of older stuff. It's usually more expensive but it's still cheaper than Ebay. I saw TF Animated figures in a Rite Aid a month ago.

^I've saw Universe figures there a few times. Nice way to snap up some older figures without getting ripped.

GABRIEL BROS. HAS TONS OF TRANSFORMERS RIGHT NOW. I went to the Gabes in Huntington this morning and they have a lot of Prime figures and DOTM figures. I don't collect either but I wanted to spread the word. I'm sure the other WV Gabes have them too.

Got FoC Grimlock last week at the Logan WM. I "liberated" him from the stack of toys set out to be shelved but instead always go to the back for months on end. :lol: Left the others so they could get one and evidently they did as only Blaster is left.

The Highlands Target has Beast Hunters wave 2. I picked up Smokescreen, Ripclaw, and Bulkhead. Someone else grabbed the other Smokescreen.

These are in Logan too at Logan Wal-Mart. I got a Smokescreen, the rest and more FOC Grimlocks plus anything else new were there as well.

Ended up with a couple BH Prowls via War - marts value packs. Lol Good that they were 10 for 2 figures, less than the price of one.

I checked the Charleston TRU for MP Prowl. The manager said he had no idea when they would get it because they "are a secondary market". He said they only got a couple Soundwave and they were out the door VERY quickly. I just ordered it online.
