Just got back from my outting around town. At time of this post, these results are 4 hours old. Only a few things worth mentioning.

Hodges & Beach Target: one Ultimate Bumblebee, two Leader class Brawls, and one Leader class Megatron.

Regency Wal-Mart: one 20th Anniveresery DVD edition Prime. From the looks of his box, he was returned by an unsatisfied customer.

Regency Target: one Titanium Cheetor and one Titanium Fallen.

Southside Boulevard Target: one Titanium Cheetor & two Titanium Fallen.

Both Toys 'R' Us: Plenty of leader Class Brawls.



I'm really pissed off at seeing the Fallen like this. I ordered one from BBTS a week ago for $26 after shipping. He's scheduled to arrive tomorrow, but now he's in stores for $16. Ah well... Better safe than sorry. I bet in a parallel universe somewhere, there's a me that didn't order Fallen last week and doesn't see Fallen in stores and ends up living out his life without one.

Larsgoes2hell: Get to Regency Target. They had seven of them when I was there.

Define "at the beach."

490 Marsh Landing Pkwy
Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250

I don't go to that Target often due to the fact that Regency happens to where I'm at... But its a very nice store. I went there just days before the G1 movie repaints hit our town, so I wouldn't know how well off they are in terms of having those particular figures. However, the overall stock job on the rest of the toy department (Of course, the Transformer section was bare) was very well stocked, and pleasantly surprising, organized.

On a side note, the Titanium section in that store is literally twice the size of the section carved out for Titanium in the Hodges & Beach store. There were eight Titaniums there instead of four when I went. No figures I didn't already have, but it did set off a bell in my mind that they would really be the store to check for Titanium figures.

Apologies for the double post.

But for those in Jacksonville, Florida... The Kernan & Atlantic Wal-Mart has placed many of their old stock out on the shelves. Of course, tons of Optimus vs. Megatron battle packs... But also are some Classic Mini-cons, a few Classic Optimus & Jetfires, some Cybertron Mini-cons, some Cybertron Deluxe, and nearly every Cybertron Scout you can think of. And, if you missed yourn chance to get the 20th DVD Prime, now's your chance. There's hundreds of them. An inflated $70 which is $20 more than the Beach Blvd. and Monument Wal-Marts are charging for him.

I was at the Target in Vero Beach and picked up the last Tit Ultra Magnus. They also had 1 each Tit Starscream and Sunstorm but I left them on the shelf. Neither really does much for me.

GAINESVILLE

2 Leader Class (Movie) Optimus Primes and 1 LC (Movie) Megatron at 13th Street Wal-Mart.

4 boxes of "Optimus Prime vs. Megatron with bonus DVD" transformable figures. I had not heard of those before. $20, but I got the LC Prime instead.

Orange Park, here. I've seen tons of Leader Brawls at the TRU across from the OP Mall. The Targets on Wells, Argyle and 17 all have lots of G1 Repaint Screamers and Autobot repaint Jazz. The Walmart on 103rd also had a few beat up looking voyagers, including Megatron, Ratchet and regular Starscream. They also had a ton of Primus figures and quite a few from the cybertron line.

I was at that Walmart that day, the 18th! All I saw was a Skids...

Whatever, I'm heading over there now! *Puts pants on*

Edit: :-x Same as when I was there Tuesday, Skids was all there was.

You got the last of the good alternators, didn't you?

:-x A$$wipe. :P

Ah well, all those but Prime are still at The Regency Super WalMart... He was really the only one I was interested in. But if I had my choice of the Alternator line, I'd have gotten Ravage and that doesn't seem likely to be found in reatil these days...

Did you see the Cybertron Menasor up on the top shelf behind the Prime vs. Megs classic two-packs or the Night Beat 7 in the regular toy aisles? I do believe those guys are still there.

Yeah... Hey, if you like traveling far, the St. Johns Town Center now stocks Wave 2 Real Gears regularly.

If there was just a Target that would start stocking those Target exclusive Cybertron repaint scouts...

I haven't seen a Transformer in Broward since June. I never did find a Leader Megs or 08 Bumblebee :sad:

Why are Transformers so hard to find in this State? It's getting rediculous! Why is it that I've never seen: Megatron, 08 Bumblebee, Arcee, Dreadwing, Payload, Deluxe 3-pack, Legends 6-pack, Leader Brawl, Dropkick, Longarm, any of the good real gears, or any of the Target exclusive repaints?

Officially Disgruntled Floridians, unite!

I don't know Chaos, maybe it's just your part of the state. I've seen most of the ones you mentioned, except '08 Bumblebee and Arcee (of course, the ones I want the most). In fact I constantly see the G1 repaints at Target, and Leader Brawl has been collecting dust at Wal-mart.

Granted, they are just kind of randomly stocked around here (like they just put a few out at a time or something), but regardless, I have seen most of the newer figures you mentioned so don't give up hope yet.

It seems Robot Replicas and Fast Action Battlers are becoming the shelfwarmers for this town. It also seems that either today, or yesterday, every store who's any store got a few cases of wave 2 voyagers. I'm seeing Rescue Ratchets and Thundercrackers everywhere...

I live in the Tampa Bay Area, A couple of days ago the Walmarts been getting in Movie Deluxe figures, had everyone except the wave with 09 Bumblebee and Arcee. Already have all the movie Deluxe and Voyager figures.. IT ridiculous how many Ulimate Bumblebees and Cybertron Primuses that Walmart has over here..HAvent seen many of the Voyagers except for Megatron and A Ratchet here and there. Target usually has the Titanium shipment of Thurday. Still havent been able to get a G1 Ultra Magnus or WW MEgatron. Anybody seen these anywhere in or somewhere close to Tampa. Forgot to mention that they had all the Replicas too except for Barricade. IS he rare.

You guys are all lucky you've seen anything since June. I've given up all hope of EVER seeing another Transformer on store shelves. I guarantee the line will be discontinued before I ever get the chance to get the last few figures I want.
There is absolutely no excuse for shelves to still be empty. WAKE UP HASBRO!!!
