Well i think its safe to say the TRU in riverhead sucks. I was in holbrook today and stoped by the TRU and they had a wall full of TFs. None of the ROTF figures but every thing else. from the last wave of animated and universe. Managed to finally get universe Ratchet. They also had a bunch of wreckgars and atomic lugnuts. Also had a few universe Dinobots, Smokescreen and theres 1 or 2 Wratchets left. I dont understand how the riverhead tru has 1 figure left and holbrook has a wall full.

My local toy store had all Wave 1 ROTF Voyagers, Deluxes, Basics, Legends, Robot Replicas, and FABs. But they were also crazily priced at $20 a Deluxe.

Getter you are still talking about the White plains stores right?

If you happen to see a bunch of the deluxe/voyager/leaders or more importantly the Target exclu. Spuerion... can you send me a pm? I'm going to go scouting, but the robot heroes and FAB's and stuff really don't matter much to me.

I've tried
Carle Place TRU
Westbury Wal-MArt
Westbury Target

Results: No ROTF. I am trying to go to College Point TRU each day. I found nothing yet. But at Westbury Wal-Mart I found Revenge of the Fallen: The Veiled Threat. I did not pick it up. So go get it if you want to see the prequel to ROTF and the events after first movie.

no targets in the ny, nj, conn area have gotten any rotf deluxe, leader or voyager class figures in stock yet.


tru will not break a shelf date

walmart is your only hope and since the **** is sitting in the back and is not out yet, don't expect it to be before the 30th.

kmart has there **** also, try there.

they have zero rotf figures out on the shelves right now, or are there any price tags on empty pegs.

gee i am really sure they sold out 5 100 dollar devastator sets in one day when no one knows they out.

Did you go to Amok Time in Levittown? They have ROTF Legends for $7, Deluxes for $20, Scouts for $15, and FAB's for $23. I picked up BB, Sideswipe and Sideways.

Na really? I had no clue. I live in manorville so RH is the only close place for me to go shopping. I think that they're just lazy at TRU. Stopped by there firday and they actually had crap. All last wave animated but they at least had figures. Target had nothing. They wont even get the figures out of the back. The guy was going to but he came back out saying he couldnt sell them to me because of the street date. Im guessing some one new is in charge, ive been getting figures early from there since the first classics line.

Thanks for that, its what I figured. But my local PA walmarts only are putting out wave 2 of the deluxes and scouts, which is great, but no fallen or jetfire.

Good luck.

Like clockwork, walmart uncovered everything at 5pm. They had everything wave 1 i've read about so far, except no Soundwave to be found.

leader opt/megs
voyager starscream/demolisher/ironhide/prime
deluxes: all but no soundwave :( They did have a bumbles, so maybe it was just buried somewhere


Target also had their stuff out, but no Target exclusive universe combiners

notables were Voyager Fallen and Ratchet in addition to the ones mentioned that walmart had

sosundwave comes in the preview cases, but not in the normal wave1 assortment cases. If the store didnt get preview cases than they wont have soundwave out.

Walmart in Westbury broke the date yesterday. I picked up Leader Prime, Sideswipe and Skids. I saw Preview Bumblebee but no Soundwave. Few Wave 1s and a bunch of Wave 2s.

Carle Place TRU were setting up the display on the right side of the store and had nothing out yesterday. They guys said 9AM this morining. Westbury Target had nothing out. Just a sign that said May 30th and 5 Animated Waspinators.

Anyone see Bruticus Maximus or Superion in Westbury Target or Levittown Target?
