Barrett Parkway TRU in Kennesaw has about 6 of each MP Sunstorm and Prowl. They've been sitting for a few days. Wonder if these are going to shelf warm. Also saw the relaunch GI Joes figures and vehicles if anyone is interested.

I just bought my Sunstorm for 15% off. I got a coupon in the mail that allows you to take 20% off any item if you have a toys R us credit card. Or 15% off if you don't have a Toys "R" Us credit card. When I paid for my sunstorm I used the coupon but only a picture of it which was accepted at the register. I sent my brother the picture of the coupon and he also was able to use the picture on his phone at the register. If you want this picture of the coupon which will allow you to take 15% off an item, then private message me with your cell phone number and I will text you the picture.

Saw Rattrap and Tankor at Barrett TRU in Kennesaw today. Also saw the Evolution of Prime 2-Pack with the updated Classics Mold redo a few days ago at Cumberland TRU but they were gone by the time I went back.

Has anybody run into Jetfire anywhere?

Tucker Target had 3 Tankors and 1 Rattrap (which I bought). Everything else was the same lame junk.

Looks like if you need Generations Jetfire the place to go is KMart. Found him at Big K in Mableton. Almost left without seeing him thinking the long drive was for nothing but checked around in the other aisles and found 2 just sitting out of place. There were 2 so with me taking 1 there is still one left.

Love the figure but it just has some blatant misses for me. The thing is dying for an 3rd party upgrade set as the blaster and booster pack don't look right in straight chromed red. The box pic looks way better (as usual). As an added problem the red is flaking off already right out of the box just from the band holding the gun in place. The thrusters are also way to small in jet mode and would benefit from being larger.

My biggest gripe is I really don't think this needed to be $46.99. It's not that large of a figure and has no real hefty feeling to it. The box is also deceiving as it is much larger than it needs to be which makes you feel like your getting a larger figure than you really are. With no electronics $34.99 to $39.99 feels more like a fair price for this.

A must pick up though as I feel like he will be like Metroplex where once he's initially gone he will be extremely tough to pick up at retail price.

Yeah, I saw Jetfire for the first time too this weekend. It was at Oxford Comics in Atlanta. Typical comic store markup ...had him at 60 bucks. Pass at that price thanks! A shame that the red chrome is already flaking. Can't help but wonder if when I get him that I should spray a clear coat on the chromed parts.

Was also at the TRU at Lenox on Saturday. Watched a guy come down the Transformers aisle and hide the last MP Prowl. Was that any of you?

Seems like Kmart is the place as noted above for Jetfire - picked him up at Kmart in Statesboro. Also, FWIW, found Gears and Acid Storm (Legends) in Walmart in Waynesboro.

Just got Nightbeat and Crosscut from Barrett TRU. Still one Nightbeat left so I guess I just missed the rest of the wave. They were price $16.99 but they have a Buy one get one 40% off going on so I guess you can say I got them for "regular retail". :roll:

Jetfire has hit TRU as I saw one at Barrett Parkway in Kennesaw. No price sticker but I was surprised to see that he was $46.99 like other retailers and didn't have the TRU markup. Plus he was part of the Buy one get one 40% off.

Been all over the place lately. Found my Jhiaxus at the TRU by Cumberland Mall. They had plenty of the full wave stocked and was going to pick up Wingblade as well but it looks like the BOGO is must have ended yesterday. Ended up leaving her in hopes of finding her at a better price.

Man this forum went cold. Anyone still out there?

I guess there hasn't been a lot released striking interests.

Not sure if any of you are after the Combiner Wars Arielbots or not, but I have been seeing them at Walmart in Peachtree city and Newnan. But, I went to Walmart in PTC on my lunch break and they were gone! All of them, just after seeing them yesterday.

Anyhow, just wanted to touch base to see if anyone has seen Generations Arcee or Chromia. I have not seen either one of them.

Hope all is well!

Nope, no Bombshell either, though I have seen a few Shrapnels...mainly at Target. There does not seem to be a lot of them per case. I do not think I have seen more than one at a time.

I don't think I've ever seen Tailgate either, I stopped by TRU at Cumberland yesterday and it was lame, lame, and lamer (Slag, Scorn, a few of the new Combiner Wars, Grimlock, Grimlock, and Grimlock, and Sunstorm...). At the Tucker Target it was even worse - Sky Byte, Springer, Lockdown, Cybertron Cassettes...

Found bombshell today at Target as well (Peachtree City). Still have not seen Arcee or Chromia, so I went ahead and got them from BBTS. On the lookout now for Combiner wars Megatron. Going to TRU in Fayetteville tomorrow. Will advise if we find anything good.

Tru Fayetteville had 2 bombshells and one Combiner Wars Megatron (the Fruity Pebbles one... can't remember the version...Armada?). He looked kinda cool but holding out for the G1 Silver one.

And for those of you interested in the Marvel Infinite figures, they also had the New Spider-Man BAF Hobgoblin figures released. This was a complete surprise to find already.

Just went to Fayetteville TRU and finally found the G1 Combiner Wars Megatron. They also had 1 Armada Megatron left. I feel relieved to have found him as I feel he will be hard to find. I'm still keeping an eye out for another one for my brother.

Also, I'm seeing bombshells all over. This week, saw him at 2 Targets, Tru and Walmart if any you are still looking. He may be available on Walmart online and they ship to store for free.
