Recently many fans have been lucky enough to find a few of the Wave 1 figures early at their local Walmarts or Targets. Canada as it would seem is no different, but with a little extra hitting shelves too.

Cybertron.ca member jacobot has not only found Wave 1 Scouts, Deluxes, and Voyagers along with several other members of the site, but now it would seem he has also found Wave 1 FABs & Wave 2 scouts as seen in his picture below.

Seems street dates are more of a guideline then a general rule.

Have you seen these new hot tickets in your area? If so, why not share it with your friends here on Seibertron.com in our Sightings Section

My God! We seem to have entered a parallel dimension where America is the last country to get Transformers instead of the first...(lol :lol: )

I'm starting to think that Hasbro/Takara is releasing them everywhere else so that they can reap in the money from the double price other countries are paying in some sort of attempt to reduce shelf-warming in America.
(Cause you know that eventually ROTF stuff is going to warm just as bad as the first movie did regardless of how much we want it now >_>)

My other hope is that maybe they are just super stocking up on figures before the release date so that when the time comes there will be no shortage of figures for one and all :grin:

Still, at least SOMEBODY is getting them. I suppose that's better than nobody :roll:.

(Though I am so close to laying siege to the Wal-Mart until they surrender the figures I KNOW they have in the back room, medieval tactics ftw!)

I hope the first part is true.. Where I live there was a huge shortage in the key figures..It took me almost a year to get the whole movie cast.

Your second point is so true as well..I have seen the stack of May30th boxes @2 of my wal marts with my own 2 eyes.. I almost convinced a employee to open one of them so I could at least look inside..

Great news for canada.. :sad:

I just got back from my local Wal-Mart, and seeing as how they're already there, maybe if you headed back there now, you might get lucky.

I also just got back from my fav walmart and they have pulled ALL of the transformers toys even the animated line..they pulled the pegs down and all of the tags.. I'm hoping :SMUG: there getting ready to start slowly inching the ROTF line out seeing as how they had the ROTF robot heores for like 2 weeks but wouldn't sell them :MAD:

I picked up BB and Soundwave for a friend at work's son. I was able to grab them for 40% off (only $8.97 CAD each + tax = $10) as TRU had a sale going on at the time on all TFs! At that price I bought 4 more in case some other friend's kids want them for $10 each. Soundwave sucks IMHO and BB well I already have the TFM version.

Ya it's not really unheard of. Even Animated kinda worked out that way in waves 5 and 6. Ontario practically got them both at the same time.


I can't remember have the first wave of leaders been spotted yet?
