Tacoma TRU: Nothing of note. UQS Darth Maul was being clearanced for $60 and the SW Lars Homestead was being clearanced for $40.

Puyallop TRU: Nothing of note.

Puyallop Walmart: Nothing of note. Older Robot heroes wave - BM Cheetor and Tankor.

Puyallop Big Lots: The same Universe Scout and Legend assortments I've seen recently. Some of the single K-Mart exclusive mini-cons.



Edit: Jimmy if you're reading this, I was right about that certain figure I called you about today - the blue one is the chaser. I had never seen it before...

According to the TRU site (via news listed here) Bellevue TRU is the only TRU in WA that is running the May 29th one hour (between 9:00 and 10:00) release date for the ROTF stuff. Anybody thinking about going? Sounds like it'll be more organized than a Star Wars Midnight Madness release.

Lynnwood Walmart: ROTF Wave 1 Deluxe, Voyager, Leader Megs (couldn't find a Prime), FABs, Robot Replicas, etc.
I grabbed SS and the last Soundwave amongst the army of bug-eyed BBs. (This is the only SW I've seen all day)

Lynnwood Target: ROTF Wave 2 Deluxe (zero Wave 1) and Wave 2 Voyager, both Leaders, FABS, RR, etc. I grabbed the Fallen - there are still two left. No sign of the exclusive combiner there.

Lynnwood TRU: Nothing out yet, they were still assembling the area when I checked this afternoon. I'll be there first thing tomorrow with more info. I'll be skipping the Belleuve TRU tonight.

If I might ask, what do you mean "they were called to break the street date"? Does that mean other locations will put out figures tonight?

I saw Lynnwood putting up the shelving before I left; could this mean are planning to stock this afternoon/evening?

he said other retail stores broke the street date so they got a call from coporate at 2 pm to break the street date and fill there shevles. Im going to assume this is all TRU, so by tonight every TRU should be stocked.

Ahhh. Cool.

I keep trying to call Lynnwood TRU and the lines always busy. I'm guessing others are trying to get through, too. If anyone finds out about the Lynnwood location, can they post it? I'll be going tomorrow, but would rather go tonight; since that means I won't have to wake up early tomorrow and skip hunting all together.

Well, if TRU stocks anything outside of Wave 1 and 2, please post it. I doubt we will see much more for a few weeks, but may as well get everything in one day if there are more to be had. Same stuff down South as reported up north between Targets and Walmarts. Nice to take care of everything in one shot.

Damn Lynnwood TRU had a "power-outage" this evening sometime before I got there around 8:00pm. Guess I have to go check tomorrow for the Whirl/Bludgeon pack.

On a side note, the SDCC Soundwave has horrible packaging. What a missed opportunity...

Lynnwood TRU had their ROTF stuff out this morning (with electrical power). Just the usual Wave 1 figures. They did also have the keychains and the exclusive Whirl/Bludgeon sets. I'm disappointed with the paint apps on Whirl, they don't seem to match the same color of light blue plastic; so I had to pass - that and all the boxes were alittle rough.

No more Fallens at Lynnwood Target. I did get Chromia and Wheelie. I think I'm pretty much done until Wave 3 or the Human Alliance stuff.

Wow. Pretty strong Q&A from Hasbro this time for TFs. Usually the Hasbro Star Wars Q&As are very lacking and vague. Very hot stuff coming out in the near future and beyond, I'm actually *interested* in hunting with those pieces of news.


With that said, where are all the Washington sightings guys? This board has gotten more action from the migrating TFW2005 people, than from any original posters that have been here before. I gotta know people are actually looking here and we should start networking NOW to get the goods. MP Skywarp coming out of Walmart? You know that's gonna hit light just like the MP SS last time. Let's get some sightings posts and PMs and stuff rotating. This has been the big ROTF weekend and I haven't heard from anybody. Where we at, WA guys? :D

You guys are out there, I see some posts from you on other areas but not in the WA sightings.

C'mon, rally the home team. :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

Sightings from last night

Lynnwood Target has plenty of deluxe skids, wheelie, chromia, and brawl. Voyagers they had Prime, Ironhide, and Ratchet. They had both leader prime and Megs. 1 scout ransack and dead end.

Lynnwood TRU had deluxe bumblebee, sideways, sideswipe. All the legends figures. Voyagers they had Starscream, Demolisher. They probably had more but I didn't look too much. They of course had both leaders as well.


I am thinking about having us Northenders having a regular get together. I would love to meet some of you guys.

With the sale Fred Meyers has going on ROTF toys I decided to pick some up. Picked up a Leader Prime and Sideswipe at Mill Creek Fred Meyers. They had Wave 1 and 2 Deluxes, both leaders, and Wave 1 voyagers. Scouts and legends were there as well.

back in WA fellas...went to BOTCON and had a blast. Haven't come across anything interesting since I got back yesterday.

Haven't found anything besides wave 1 and 2 in scouts/deluxes. Same goes for voyager figs. I'm looking for wave 3/4 like everyone else....

Lynnwood Target still have deluxe Smokescreen, Skids, Chromia, Brawl, and Wheelie. Voyager Ironhide, Prime, and Ratchet. Leader prime and megs

Everett Target has plenty of Deluxe Soundwave if anyone is still looking.

Everett tru has wave 1 stuff. I did see a few scout Ransacks there.

The Fallen still seems to evade me. After hearing of the Fallen being in stock at Everett Target I went there first thing today but there were none. Probably a scalper.

Anyone see the variant Sideways and/or Breakaway?

Apparently they're both shipping with Wave 2 Deluxes. Both are a darker color than the Wave 1 version, with Sideways almost being black, it's so dark. I think I'll have to hit up Lynn Target again.

I should have grabbed their three Fallens they had on Friday to disperse. I just got the one and haven't opened him yet. He could use a couple more paint apps...

On a side note, does anyone know of any good collectibles shops in or around (or on the way to) Portland? Aside from Toy Stable, that is.
