Reports have been trickling in over the past week or so of Transformers DOTM main line toys starting to appear on the shelves of retailers well before their May 16th street date. Our own chrisc4 came across Leader class wave 1, and purchased Sentinel Prime at a Target in Laredo, Texas.

Yours truly managed to purchase Deluxe wave 1 at a Toys-R-Us in Oklahoma City. The figures rang up as "unsellable" due to their street date, but the manage went ahead and sold them to me. So purchasing these before the street date will probably be on a case by case basis at Toys-R-Us depending on how strict their management is on street dates.

Roxxstar found these DOTM Activators at a Target in Lathrop, California.

It might be worth your time to swing by your local Target and Toys-R-Us to see if any DOTM toys are lurking in the toy department.

Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas, California, and North Carolina Targets have been selling them. I won't be surprised if we see more. Ohio Targets have done it in the past too.

I think it's official now that retailers are trying skip an entire line of awesome transformers. Now I'm bummed that I may never see a Reveal The Shield deluxe figure past wave 1 or a Legends Megatron. :sad: :BANG_HEAD:

I'm on a budget and $15 for a deluxe plus $8 shipping is not in my budget. :-B I also enjoy the thrill of the hunt.

Ah but if you use the Pile of loot feature and say add 5 deluxde figures to it total shipping for those 5 figures would be around 9 bucks for ground give or take a few bucks, subtract the ever growing cost of gas, time spent looking for said figures you actually break about even. '

Now a days the hunt can be a little too exspensive and more than likely a waste of time ;) While I wont lie I still enjoy loking for figures, I know Warpath and thundercracker will 99.9% never be found at retail with the movie figures just around the corner..

I've checked a few Targets around the NW and W Chicago suburbs, and they have all either cited the street date or claimed to have none in stock at all. I'll wait, tho it's kinda killing me.

Don't sweat it...it's not that impressive. SP was one of the few DOTM figs I was interested in, and I managed to pick one up yesterday. He's much less 'attractive' in person and has a fiddly, panel-former transformation. Not the worst fig ever, but definitely not a good sign if this is one of the better figs of the line...

Could've also picked up leader Bumblebee, but chose not to.

Ok, it begins. Be strong, resist, do not fall into temptation. You have your list, you have a budget. Only buy the figures I decided on. Okay, I'm ready.

Bring It!!!!
