It's definitely been a while, but we can finally report an official sighting of Transformers Generations Deluxe (Fat) Tankor and Rattrap, courtesy of fellow Seibertron.com user Bounti76. The figures were purchased at a Walmart in Centerville, Utah - so head to the Sightings section of the site, and happy hunting!

so is the normal price for these $10 or are they on sale again? I was at walmart the other day and the prices were back up to $15. Only thing still on sale at the time were the one step changers. But at $10 id pick these up no problem, even though im not a fan of either mold a figure & a comic for $10 is a great deal.

Haven't seen them in NY. I'm at my folks house in NJ right now, and I just got back from a quick hunt. Didn't see anything at Target, and made a conscious decision to avoid Wal-Mart. Kind of regretting that now...

When I found Rattrap and (Fat) Tankor on the pegs, their regular tag (no sale tag in sight) said $9.97. The Generations movie figures were still at $14.97, and were nowhere to be seen, completely cleaned out.

Still not much of anything but AoE in Baton Rouge, LA. We're usually pretty good about getting new releases. The way the AoE toys are shelfwarming does nor make me feel good about seeing these anytime soon. What are the case mates with these two?

Already bought these two from vendors at BotCon to save myself the trouble of hunting them down in stores.

I think their other case mate was supposed to have been Crosscut. He's still listed as the cross-sell on the bottom of the package, even though he was reshuffled to the next wave with Jhiaxus, Windblade and Nightbeat.

That's exactly what happened. He was supposed to be part of their case assortment, but got pushed back further when all the non-AOE Generations got pushed back.

They have. In the Cincinnati region. I think a few in Toledo and Columbus as well. Meijer is what I've been hearing. Closest one to you is Mansfield.

I doubt I'll see these anytime soon, with all the Wave 3 figures still warming pegs; I swear all my local stores skipped over Waspinator's wave except for Goldbug. He was the only one I ever saw, and it was twice at the most!

Then again, I did just find Tailgate and Shrapnel at a Toys R Us, so maybe there's hope.

Yeah, i have a walmart who has stocked Vol 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 8 fof the Legends guys and I keep hoping Swerve and Cosmos will show up as a late buried case but I have my doubts...

I think Hasbro should allow ALL retailers to direct order figures instead of just the little guys. I think it's great that they're doing it at all, but Wal*Mart, Target and TRU especially, have a terrible time moving these things. K-Mart doesn't do too bad, but that's mainly because they get newer stuff due to not ordering the older stuff, or clearancing it out for quite some time until the new stuff arrives. (Still, that's rare, too.)

Their sales would be much, much bigger if they'd allow all of the stores to direct order the figures they want and keep those hot sellers coming. Buy a case of each figure, put all of them out. Order one or two Bumblebees and Optimii per case. Keep the rotten apples out, while selling all of the good ones.
