Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff?

If you guys can find him, Lockdown is excellent. Prowl's another good one. Heck, the entire line is full of win.



I was searching everywhere for Lockdown. Nothing yet. I'll post when/if I find him.
In a place such as this, you are the perfect prey for a brest animal!

I found everyone mentioned at the sightings in Nevada and California. I also found Premium Jazz, Barricade, Optimus Prime and Megatron at Wal-Mart. Here is my proof:

Wal-Mart Supercenter

Signal Butte Road
Mesa, AZ

Note: They were still in their boxes and they had them on the floor. I noticed the Hasbro boxes saying "TFA Animated Deluxe, Voyager or Battle Pak" on their sides.

Makes me wonder about Missouri!

I would go check for myself, but I am afraid they would have them...I am currently quite broke! Staring at shelves full of goodies I want badly would just upset me!


Lemme know if someone finds them here, so I know what I can ask for for my birthday next week and where to score em!

I doubt that they would be in my current region, which is small population wise. So, I will wait until I complete my move before I start hunting again.

So unfair, I think you're all using Game genie/gameshark/action replay and activating the 'release early' code :-(

Stopping at Target on the way home once I get my car back a lil later this morning and see how disappointed I'll be. :-(

I'm in Florida. I went to two Wal-Marts yesterday after hearing the news....no evidence whatsoever of Animated toys at all. Just Movie repaints all over the place. Then I remembered that I'm in Florida. :grin:

So glad I've pre-ordered most of these guys anyways. I have a very strong feeling I won't see any of these toys in my local stores until mid-July at the earliest.

That's usually how it goes.

For all the doubters, it is true that WalMart has begun to put out TFA toys. After reading the sightings page last night (1AM) I figured, what the hell I'll roll over right now and check for myself. I got to WalMart and true enough, they had the new TFA toys...just not unpackaged. I asked the person in the toy section if she knew if I could just pick which one's I wanted out of the box (she said no, but she did say she would put them out right now because I asked politely). So I waited patiently and ended up getting:
Grimlock
Prowl
Bumblebee
Ratchet
& Lockdown
I plan on going back this morning and getting Lugnut and Starscream. I'll try to post a pic of my receipt and loot once I figure out how. This is my very first post, but I have been visiting this site off and on for a few years now.
Oh, I'm in Reno, NV.

Went to a different WalMart (Sacramento, CA) this morning and picked up:

Deluxe Prowl
Deluxe Bumblebee
Deluxe Prime
Deluxe Lockdown
Deluxe Black Arachnia (after passing on her yesterday, decided to be a completist I guess)

The only Voyagers out at this WalMart were Bulkhead and Starscream. I just need Grimlock and I'm all done.

Went to a different Wal-Mart in Natomas, CA (sacramento) and the pegs were flowing with deluxe! Tons of voyagers too but the only one I was looking for to complete the first couple waves was Grimlock and sure enough they had him. I'm all done til the next wave! (and Classics 2.0)

From reports I've seen, some of them (like the Nevada sightings) have an endcap or action alley (lane) display on a four sided shelf unit.

Others mention that they're mixed in with Movie toys on the shelves and pegs.

So it's going to take a little extra looking to find them, but they are in that general area, if, your store is stocking them right now. I'd say we'll see full saturation in a month, but reports of sightings nationwide within the next two weeks.

I already posted this in the sightings thread but might as well post it here.

Hey guys my dad just hit a Walmart in Livermore on his way to work and needed to stop and get so guess what he saw! Animated! I asked him to pick up a Ratchet which he currently has in his possesion but they also had Grimlock, Lugnut, Cybertron Prime, Lockdown, Prowl, Blackarachnia, and a few others... They were mixed in with the movie toys. My dad kept saying Salvage and Stockade looked similar to Ratchet over the phone. :lol:

So yeah if you're in the Livermore are that's where they are! :D

All this talk about getting Animated figures makes me feel kinda left out. And I wasn't even planning on buying any until I saw them at Botcon.
