Plymouth Target (494 and Rockford Road) has moved their TF section, and stocked 2 each of all the TR Deluxes. A bunch of Titan Masters too, but I was in a rush and didn't see all what is there. Happy hunting!

Just found this thread, howdy neighbors!

Man, I called that Maple Grove TRU a week or two ago and the girl told me no Titans Return til the end of the month. Oh well, got most of what I wanted elsewhere anyway.

I'm gonna try to find Galvatron today. Also has anyone seen the Walgreens Bainstorm yet?

Hello Mr. Skram.

The Minnetonka TRU is usually better stocked than the Maple Grove one.

Went to Plymouth Target and saw what Agamemnon saw. Didn't bother on looking what the Titan Masters are but there are few of them. Man, the color scheme on Blurr is really ugly. I will just keep my Generations one.

Forgot to mention. Brooklyn Park Walmart has one Galvatron and one Sentinel. Saw it last week. Don't know if still there or not.

Cool, that one is close to my fiancee's work. I'll check it out if I drive her at all this week. Thanks!

Thanks for the BP Walmart tip! Just got word from my fiancee that she was able to snag Galvatron for me. I feel bad for sending her into that accursed store, but the deed is done and I'm one Transformer richer!

Stopped by Walgreens in Moorhead tonight on a whim, and they had 5 new Brainstorms up on the rack, and one lone Chromedome which I immediately snagged.

if only moorhead were closer than 4.5 hours away :-/ the north Walgreens in Rochester dropped the deluxe price to 17.99 but only has 1 Highbrow. haven't checked the south Rochester Walgreens since Monday, but they had a couple Wolfwires and a Mindwipe.

Okay, with all the sightings, I decided to do some Walgreen's surfing today on Brainstorm hunt. The Walgreen's in Plymouth (494 and Rockford Road) had a ton of wave 1 and 2, but no Brainstorm. New Hope (Rockford Road and Winnetka) had 2 Mindwipes, so if they restock in the near future, maybe? Then I stopped in Crystal, Bass Lake Road and Broadway. BINGO! Two Brainstorms on the shelf. Instead of being a crummy scalper, I left one behind for one of you. ;)

Happy hunting!

Just checked Moorhead yesterday (searching for Highbrow with no luck), and the five Brainstorms I saw previously are still there.

Cambridge Walgreens had two Brainstorms and most of the wave 2 Deluxes when I was in there a couple days ago. I think they were only missing Highbrow.

Confirmed this morning that the Target in north Rochester has TR deluxes at $9.99. They had scourge and drift on the pegs, 2 voyager galvatron, a couple each ravage/frenzy/laserbeak, a few titan masters, and no RID warrior class.

Bit far for me but I'm tempted to make the drive. I'll see what I can find in the Coon Rapids/Andover area on my way home tomorrow after work.

Indeed, I've been surprised to see some newer stuff on the shelves (Broadside was there before I could order from BBTS, and Brawn and Chase/Freeway/Cliffjumper/Roadburn or whomever are now on shelves too.

Anyone ever see the Chaos on Velocitron set at Toys R Us? Rochester had them online and I almost made the drive. But then it was shown sold out. Based on how little I saw of the set, I'm kinda glad I paid about 2/3rds of the current going price, or almost double retail... O_O

I got a chaos on velocitron from Rochester TRU a few weeks ago. They weren't stocking them on shelves; I had to ask an employee to dig around in back.

The north Walmart and Target in Rochester are stuck with TR wave 1ish deluxes. voyagers are broadside. iirc they both have soundwave in their leader slots.
