Just got back from the riverhead walmart on long island and they had 3 incinerators, 2 evacs, 3 or 4 of the blue ironhides, 4 landmines, 4 cliffjumpers, 4 camshafts, and either 1 or 2 stockades. I picked up stockade so there may not be any left unless there was anotehr one. They also had thundercracker, rescue ratchet and nightwatch prime. They also had FAB smokescreen and the silver ironhide. My friend was at the walmart in middle island and he said they had about the same selection. i guess walmart is the place to go for transformers over here. im surprised. normally they have jackshit.

This past weekend in 4 Walmarts upstate NY Fishkill,Newburgh,Middletown,Peekskill all packed out the 4 exclusives this past Friday night and had special endcaps for them in special shipper displays along with the Robot Heroes giftset they also had all the wave 1 movie figures plent of classic Bumblebees and 09 Bumblebees if you missed any they have them now.I checked again Sunday and Monday night and all the 4 exclusives were pretty much gone maybe 2 or 3 left here and there in the 4 stores,so if anyone wanted these and you didn't check this past weekend you are S.O.L since these are probaly one time deliveries just like Masterpiece Starscream and the Black Friday Universe 2-packs only chance now is to check Walmart online daily.Also Friday night they unpacked Wave 6 of G.I. Joes: Armored Cobra Commander,Rock n Roll,LT. Torpedo but you have to be there the minute they unpack or you will never see them,you might see only the leftovers like Serpentor,Air Troopers,and Black Snake Eyes.There is a fierce competition to get them along with comic store whore-guy they only recieve 1 or 2 each of the new figures the most was 3.Because of my job I have the luxury to travelling to all these stores almost daily

If you live near Riverhead on Long Island i got some sightings you may be interested in. The walmart in riverhead has the hole TF section packed with figures. They have all the new real gears along with the new FABS. They also have Cliffjumper, Landmine, Incinerator, Evac, and nightwatch prime. I also think they had one of the desert camo leader Brawls as well. TRU and Target had jack **** like normal. But target has all TFs on sale. And TRU has voyagers on sale. The only thing Target had were some of the new exclusive scouts.

Toys r US in riverhead has premium Prime and Megatron. Also seen the TRU exclusives. Forgot the names but the molds are cybertron wingsaber and jetfire. Also on a related note they have some Nintendo Wiis. I only say this because every 10 min they announce it over the load speaker.

Long Island NY has the latest wave of Universe. After searching forever I found Ironhide, Silverstreak and Sideswipe at Walmart in Farmingdale NY on Rte 110. I never noticed that Walmart before and it looks to be new so maybe not many people check there for figures but they were pretty full. I picked both sets that they had out but they were still putting out stock so there may be more soon.

Was up in Riverhead (Long Island) and stop by a few stores. Most had the same crap they always do but the walmart up there had Bluestreak (yes i called him bluestreak) but no Ironhide unfortunately. All universe deluxe figures at walmart are on sale for $7.77 and animated dlx are $8 at target. Also most stores either got a shipment or found a box of movie figures cause there were a lot of premiums on the shelves. Also at TRU i saw the GIJOE version of the robot heros.

WalMart in riverhead im guessing got 1 case of the new universe wave cause they had 1 Bluestreak and 1 Sideswipe left. Of course no Ironhide god damn it. I did get the last Sideswipe so it wasnt a wasted trip. And they're still $7.77. Target had crap as did TRU. But who didnt foresee that. Does any one know how many of each figure comes in a case?

I just got the Universe special team leaders 5-Pack at the Target in Westbury.

I had to use to DCPI code (087062061) at customer service but after talking to about 4 crew members I finally got them to bring a box of them out of the backroom.

Just got back from Riverhead and for a change the stores has some good finds. TRU had the usual crap but they did have all the way up on the top of the shelves a case of 25th anniversary Primes. And the target across the street must of restocked, well the universe figures any way there animated selection sucked more than Elton John at a....... well anyway back on track they had 2 sidswipes, 5 Acidstorms, 4 Bluestreaks, 3 Galvatrons and a few from the first wave. They also had 1 Stormcloud and a few of the Voyager repaints. They had an Ironhide but i snagged him.

Hey Megatron_Wolf, Congratulations on finding your Ironhide!

I just got back from the Westbury Target after finding the Roadbuster/Dirge 2-pack, and a Stealth Lockdown. They were displayed on an endcap infront of the toys section. About 6 sets of the 2-packs and 4 sets of Stealth Lockdowns are left.

Roadbuster is awesome.

Thanks man. Next hunt is for Cyclonus and Hound. Speaking of Ironhide, if you still need one (or 2) Head to riverhead. TRU, Target, & Walmart had at least 2 each along with the other universe figures. Excluding the new wave of coarse. TRU and walmart also have the new activators. Snagged Megatron. And target has the universe 2 packs, Yellow animated ratchet and the universe legend pack. It seems that riverhead is finally getting there crap together.

Walmart in riverhead has Hound (got one) Cheetor and Starscream but of coarse no one had Cyclonus. I have the feeling that hes the new Ironhide. I know for a fact that both TRU and Target have a case since there classics selection has not changed in a month. Think ill be making a trip to the Middle Island walmart on saturday to see if they have him. Oh and walmart still has the calssics deluxe for $7.77.

EDIT: Walmart also had animated shockwave.

If your looking for figures stay clear of Riverhead for at least a week. All stores are picked clean. The only one that had some thing was TRU. I managed to pick up Classics Cheetor, Bumblebee, & Brawn. They still have 1 of each left. They also have 1 hound/Ravage. They must of just put them out that night cause they were all alone on the pegs. And no Cyclonus of course. They had a few Animated figures left but really nothing special. They still have a few Unicrons and two 25th Primes. Target and Walmart were destroyed. They had absolutely nothing. Just baron isles. I didnt dare try Kmart.

The TRU aisles have barely nothing. 2 Unicron, 2 Optimus Prime voice changers and Transformers Movie stickers.

Once again im back from my weekly trip to Riverhead and managed to find a few things. Not Cyclonus damn it. First TRU, Unless you want old Animated figures or Unicron just keep driving. They do have 1 deluxe Hound left and I snagged the last universe Starscream. Target same deal. Unless you need older animated figures or Ironhide and that wave of universe just keep driving. Now walmart had a couple things. They have Animated Blurr and Swindle. Picked up both and there are still 1 of each left. Other than that they have the same crap as the others. Also most stores now have the 25th G1 Prime. I didnt notice if walmart had him but TRU and Target do. And the hunt for Cyclonus continues. Maybe ill go up to shirley tomorrow and check KB.

Well did my normal store trolling today and the stores are still stripped. All i could find were old animated and old universe. I did find Beachcomber but it was the only one at TRU. Id like to know why hasbro ships out so much animated and barely any universe. Its starting to piss me off. Anyway i stopped by KB in shirley on my way to gamestop and they looked like they got robbed. Found out they had the hole going out of business sale before christmas. There were some items left. Universe Galvatron and Sunstreaker, animated Bulkhead and legends Soundwave and Leo Prime. Got another Soundwave. For $2 i couldnt pass it up. Also seen the movie "card game". All is 50% off some items get an extra 10%. So if you still have a KB near you id say check it out just for the hell for it.
