Well my friend and i ventured out in the "blizzard" to go to riverhead and it payed off. Kmart has 1 Cyclonus left cause i snagged one and they also have the others from that wave of universe. Walmart also has Cyclonus and the others and Blurr and Swindel. Walmart also has Blazong Lockdown. Only 1 left because i got one. Target still has crap and they changed there layout again. Didnt stop by TRU so they may or may not have the new figures. Well my hunt is now over (thank primus). Good luck to the rest of you that still need Cyclonus. If you live on Long Island try ans swing by Riverhead in the next few days. You might get there in time to snag one of the remaining Figure your looking for.

Have a couple of good tips for those looking for the latest figures. I found Swindle in Walmart in Uniondale NY and they had at least 5 more. They also had a Cyclonus and an animated Shockwave. I left the Cyclonus because I was previously able to find it at Tri Countly flea market in Levittown so instead of being greedy for 2 I left it for the next fan. There is a spot right below the jewelry level called the flea. He has a lot of stuff including figures from previous lines. I payed a little more for cyclonus but it was still less than I would have payed online with shipping. If you can't find what your looking for anywhere try them.

I haven't been to Tri County in years. Does this dealer have anything worthwhile that would justify a trip there?

Well he was the only place I could find Cyclonus a couple of weeks ago when I got him. There is a whole floor of Tri County just dedicated to collectors and they had a lot of hard to find things. I also saw blurr there way before anywhere else but I didn't passed on him at the time which I am now kicking myself for. Old lines like Cyberton and Energon, G1 originals and remakes, etc... Not just Transformers either. If you get the chance you should check it out.

Walmart in Westbury NY was a goldmine last night. They had 2 Shadowblade Megatrons, 2 Cyclonus, 2 Hound, Starscream, Cheetor, 2 Animated Swindles, and 2 Animated Blurrs (I took one so there is one left.)

Was only able to stop by TRU today while i was in riverhead but i found Dinobot and Universe G1 Starscream. Got the last ones but if TRU had em try walmart or Kmart. When TRU has some thing they usually do to. Kmart would be your best bet cause no one goes there. Thats were i found Cyclonus when no one had him. Paid $1.50 extra but what the hell. TRU does have Shadowblade Megatron and still has 1 Cheetor and Hound. Also a bunch of the old stuff.

I bought Universe Dinobot and Smokescreen today at the Levittown Target on my way home from work.

I got the last 2, but they still had plenty of the Jetfire/Jetstorm 2-pack and a bunch of Hounds.

Long Island NY is full of the latest wave now. I went to multiple stores and saw Smokescreens, Dinobots, Cyclonus and Hounds everywhere. The best place was Target in Hicksville. They had at least 6 of each on 2 different displays plus the TFA Jet 2 pack. I also picked up Wreck-gar there but he was the last one. The good news for someone is that I saw Inferno there which was shocking. I left him for someone since I already got mine a couple of weeks ago online.

I was in Target in Farmingdale NY and they had the Roadbuster Ultra Magnus TFA leader. Left it because didn't really like the fact that they left Magnus' head White and Blue. Looked kinda crazy.

Not sure if stores are just not restocking or Hasbro is not shipping out items cause both TRU & Target are empty. Target in riverhead does have a few of the new figures. Im guessing they just put the case out since they have 2 of each. Universe Cyclonus,Smokescreen, Cheetor and Dinobot. There was also 1 G1 Starscream and i think a Hound was left. Its never a good sign when only 2 racks have figures. I got the last Inferno but check walmart or kmart they should have at least 1. Also target has the animated Jetfire/Jetstorm 2 pack. Theres 2 left. TRU does have 2 Smokescreens but really nothing else. Id also like to add that voyagers in Target are now $21.99. The deluxe price hick hasnt gone into effect yet so if you want deluxes get them now if you can.

My regular spot. Got the same figures yesterday minus Inferno but I already owned him. As of yesterday Westbury Walmart just has Rodimus left of the legend figures.

I found Wreck Gar at the westbury target about 3 weeks ago.

I was there yesterday looking for Prowl and Waspy, but the shelves only had wave 3 deluxes, and wave 2 voyagers. Sorry Moon.

They did have Roadbuster Magnus though.

I saw a Wreck-Gar at the westbury Target last weekend but it was already broken so i didnt even bother. The Levittown Target had nothing at all. Just some Activators and some Universe ones, no Animated at all.

Just made my rounds to those stores and the usual crap is there. Picked up Snarl to complete my Dinobot set. Im still thinking about getting Universe Cheetor and Dinobot.

Ill try again next weekend for Wreck-Gar and Waspinator.

:D That was probably my Wreck Gar that I returned. If it was the same one it wasn't broken. I just returned him because I wasn't as high on the figure as I thought I would be and exchanged him for something else. If your still looking though I originally found him at the Target in Hicksville in Broadway mall. Also as a last resort there is a place in Tri County flea Market on the second floor that has a lot of Transformers figures and he has been great at having the hard to find ones. There would be a little bit of a Mark-up on them (probably $25-$30 for Wreckgar and $15-20 for Waspinator) but as a last resort or if you want the best chance of finding them I would check them out.

Really? Cause the Wreck-Gar that I saw, the blade was broken off and the box was ruined.

Ill try Tri-County this weekend on my way to the Levittown Target even though it will probably be a waste of time since they always have nothing good. I did pick up Animated Blitzwing and Cybertron Megs there but thats it. Carle Place TRU and East Meadow Wal-Mart have been good to me in recent weeks.

Maybe it wasn't mine then. Or it is possible that the people taking the returns just threw it in a cart and then managed to pile more crap on top him like I've seen done before. I still believe that the spot in Tri County is your best chance as they have been really good. In fact I saw Waspinator there when I bought my Cyclonus when he first came out and I remember thinking to myself how did he get it so early. I really wasn't interested in him though so I left it. Good luck on the search though. I know what it's like to really want a figure and not be able to find it. Went thru it with Universe Cyclonus and I'm going thru it with the Animated Activators Cliffjumper that I want now. :sad:

Im going out today to find Animated Wreck-Gar, Waspy and Samurai Prowl. Wish me luck!

Edit: GOT WASPY AND PROWL!! I went to the TRU, Target and Wal-Mart on Old Country Road in Westbury and found nothing new. I was going to give up but then decided to go to Wal-Mart in East Meadow on Newbridge and I picked up the last Waspinator and Samurai Prowl.

I did see an Elite Guard Bumblebee in the Target in Westbury but i decided not to get it.

I picked up Waspinator and Prowl at the TRU in riverhead. Theres one prowl left i got the last wasp. Target has crap and jacked the prices universe dlx $11.99 animated dlx $10.99. For once TRU is cheaper and actually had items. No universe legends or wreckgar unfortunately. Walmart had nothing new. So my hunt continues.
