Oh, and yeah, I went to my local TRU, nothing noteworthy. They seem to have decreased shelf and peg space; the walls are completely full, but they're full of stuff like Real Gear and TECH Toys and Robot Replicas. Ugh.

Local Target, they haven't even stocked yet. I'll check after work to see if there's any new stuff.


Yeah, we should totally coordinate. There's no Classics left. Two weeks ago the TRU's had a Jetfire and Optimus Prime, but it's gone now. Unless they restock tonight, I don't think they'll have it.

And yeah, I've seen plenty of Deluxe Jazz at the local Kohl's too. You should definitely check that one out.

By the way, I'm looking for Concepts Bumblebee and Arcee, just like everyone else. Please let me know if you can help!!

I'm going to check the TRU's in Arcadia tonight after work. I'll let you guys know if I see anything.

Yeah anyone look for Classics, know this: they're gone. I mean, find one? Grab the Hell out of it and run like mad. But will you find them? HIghly unlikely.

That being said, if anyone finds some, please, say something.

And thanks for the Kohl's suggestions - what else can be found there, pray tell?

Friday 3:30pm

Walmart Pico Rivera, CA. (10am)
Has a fresh case of Deluxe assortment and some Voyagers.
After my pick (1xArcee, 1xLongarm, 1xPayload), here's what's left on the shelf still:

Image

DELUXES
1 x Arcee
1 x Bonecrusher
2 x Dreadwing
1 x Brawl
2 x Scorponok
1 x Wreckage
1 x Swindle
a number of protoforms
VOYAGERS
2 x Ironhide
2 x Ratchet
2 x Megatron
1 x Starscream

Target Alhambra, CA. (8:10am)
3 x Ultimate Bumblebee (a scalper grabbed all 3, I managed to get one from him)
1 x 6" Titanium Optimus Prime (I picked it up)
1 x 6" Titanium Rodimus Prime (I picked it up)
1 x 6" Titanium Starscream (I picked it up)
some scout class

Target Duarte, CA. (12pm)
some scout class
2 x 6" Titanium Optimus Prime
1 x 6" Titanium Rodimus Prime
1 x 6" Titanium Starscream

Walmart Rosemead (8:45am) has nothing
Target Whittier (9:30am) has nothing
Walmart City of Industry (11am) has nothing
Walmart Duarte (12:40pm) has nothing
Target Pasadena East (1:10pm) has nothing
Target Pasadena Old Town (1:30pm) has nothing
Toys R Us Alhambra (2pm) has nothing

Okay guys that's my store run report for today, I have been up and driving around since 7:50am and finally came back around 2:45pm, covered almost 100 miles making a big circle. Most of these stores are due for reset, espeically Walmarts, I've seen them relocated the action figure section and getting ready for new shipments to be dropped in anytime. The Big One is coming.

Starting tomorrow I will be on a business trip for 6 days, wish you guys good luck hunting.

Cheers!

*** NOTE: I'm still looking for Deluxe Dropkick ***

I have done such a similar drive! Rosemead, West Covina, Alhambra & to target on whittier!

I did finally find them, bumblbee 2008, longarm, dreadwing, arcee, final battle jazz, & payload! I was running an errand for work and was giving up on the search. Randomly a TRU appeared on my route and it was 10 till they opened. Of course I waited (with no hope to find any) and to my surprise I found them all (except dropkick). Surpisingly I was the only waiting! But I did not find them in my route! TYR on la cienega this past thursday!

Don't remeber if they had anything else...i was too busy grabbing...lol....left a barricade, brawl, and others...

Plenty of Jetfires at a San Diego ToysrUs if that helps. If your interested or close enough check out the one on Morena Blvd. They also had all of the new Movie Robot heroes too, which aren't even supposed to be out yet...

Classic Jetfires? I gotta get me that. How many is plenty? My paycheck comes in on Wednesday, and I don't know if I want to make the horrible drive down there if I'm not certain I'll get something out of it.

In terms of Movie toys though, I assume San Diego's not getting any love, correct?

There were 3 Jetfires, though they were the only Classics.

My wife works at a Target around here, and they had 10 Ultimate Bumblebees that stayed on the shelf for probably an hour when some guy came in and bought every one of them. Other than a few depleted sightings, San Diego continues to be very dry.

Yeah, if there were 3, I wouldn't anticipate them having any of them by Wednesday. Earlier in the week the Oceanside TRU had a surplus of Titanium Megatron vs. WW Prime two-packs that filled up even the overstock. Went today and yesterday, and the shelves were completely bare.

Just came back from West Covina TRU, finally scored some stuff....

I bought a Classics Optimus Prime, they had another one + 2 jetfires leftover.

They also had 4 Movie Megatron Voyagers and 4 Movie prime voyagers.

So much for Target's one per person collector's rule. Idiots.

I just came back from this same TRU on Morena Blvd down in San Diego, which really isn't to far from Oceanside (where the 5 and 8 meet). They got a huge shipment of Classics voyagers. No kidding I counted about 12 Primes and 15 Jetfires. They also got a bunch of miscellaneous Cybertron stuff, looks like they're cleaning out backstock from somewhere. As far as movie stuff, still about 2 each of all the new Robot Heroes except the Prime/Blackout pack (0), and over 10 voyager Megatrons (look in the shelf above the actual display shelves for these, where they store extras and overstock), and 2 Primes...but sadly no delux class.

Where the 5 and the 8 meet is still a good 25, 30 miles away. With gas prices the way they are, I don't know if I want to waste a trip just doing that.

But yeah, I work in La Jolla anyway, so I'll stop by there after work Wednesday, and hopefully they'll still have some good stuff.

hey guys

I went to the target in San Jose every day for about a week after they set their pegs...and nothing. I went there again today, and nothing. I remember seeing a guy one day in the isle talking to an employee. Afterwards i saw him walk away with two boxes that said Hasbro. I suspect they were the deluxe lines, as those 6 pegs have remained empty. Every now and then some replicas go up but those sell pretty quick too.

:sad: cruel world.

Sorry for not being clear, it was the one on Capitol.

I also checked the one on Landess once, that wasn't quite as empty, but pretty close. No deluxes, mostly the small hero transformers.

San Diego (Southbay) Reported the other day that it looked like ToysRUs is pushing alot of older backstock. They're apparently not the only ones. Took a trip to a Walmart earlier. The Transformers shelves were filled to the brim with figures. It was like taking a trip back in time about 9 months. They have several Alternators (Skids, Sunstreaker, Rollbar, Ricochet). About 15 to 20 20th anniversary Primes, several miscellaneous Classics delux(Rodimus, Cliffjumper, Mirage, Ramjet), numerous Jetfires and Primes, and plenty of the later Cybertron figures, including over 10 Primus figures. Plus they did have a restock of Movie voyager figures from the first two waves (all of them except Blackout). If you missed any of these figures, now might be a time to get them, I'll be getting a second Jetfire and Classics Prime myself. Still no sign of any movie delux figures though.

Which Wal Mart is this? I've been scouring North County, but nothing. I know of the Wal Mart on Claremont Mesa and I think one down in Chula (that's a helluva drive from Carlsbad).

Here's what I found as of last Friday: The WalMart by the 78 and Jefferson has some deluxe classic Mirages and maybe 6 0r 7 voyager classic primes (19.00). They're on the far west wall in the clearance isle. Not near the TF movie toys.

The WalMart off of Sycamore and 78 had a metroplex in a beat to hell box for $40. It was up on the top of a shelf far from their regular transformers. I noticed they had more movie toys than other places, like a big starscream, but didn't pay too much attention as I'm not too keen on the movie stuff. I don't know what might remain after this weekend.

Oh snap, opengl, you talkin about the Wal-Mart next to Best Buy? I haven't been there in a while; looks like I finally have a chance to snatch the Classics Mirage I've always wanted.

Yeah, I'd really love a chance to grab 20th Anniv Prime too. I'll check the Wal-Mart closest to me (on Marron and College, across from Albertsons) soon, likely Wednesday when my paycheck comes.

Man, I'm gonna be spending way too much on toys when Wednesday comes around.
