    Does anyone here know of a source of stock numbers for POTPs that we can use for Wal mart on Brickseek?
    Here are the DCPIs that Target uses...



    087-06-5845 Prime Masters $4.99
    087-06-5849 Legends Class $9.99
    087-06-5863 Deluxe Class $16.99
    087-06-5868 Voyager Class $24.99
    087-06-6020 Leader Class $44.99

    But now that the Legends are showing up at Wal Marts I would really like to get a chance to have advance intel on which stores MIGHT even have them rather than the insane crap shoot toy hunting has turned into anymore

    Thanks!
    Have you guys seen the GIANT Star Wars 4 inch Black series aisle displays?

    I guess we know where all the stock has been hiding for the last two years... I had to have seen 40 ( no joke) Royal Guards and Death troopers in that display...

    I just pulled wave 1 of the deluxe and Voyager Power of the Primes from the cases myself at the HSV TRU. I bought all the Dinobots but that still leaves 2 Jazzs, 2 Dreadwinds, and 1 each of the other Dinobots. Unfortunately there was only one Grimlock but I left the Starscream too.

    So is there a Grimlock left? Going to have one disappointed son if I can't find one before Christmas morning.

    Sorry. I phrased that a little confusingly. No. I bought the only one. I'll see if we have more in the back when I go in later though.

    Thanks for the heads up about Aldi. Haven't been there in a while. I found 3-4 Ramhorns at the Aldi on 31 in Hoover at the top of the hill. I only bought one, but someone else there saw it and asked me where I found it. He said his cousin was a collector, but he seemed to know exactly what it was at a quick glance. I didn't have a ton of time to chat with him to see if he was a member or relative of a member. Was it one of you guys, or one of your cousins?

    As crappy as taking the only one allocated for the entire region and then coming on here to rub it in is, it is even more crappy that TRU has strong-armed Hasbro into giving them ( TRU) a 'soft" exclusive on the voyagers for a undetermined time period... then only orders and stocks ONE CASE for everyone at Christmas time.
    I popped into the words shitiest TRU after seeing this post though and although there were no Generations leaders, Voyagers, OR Deluxes stocked ... they DID seem to be stocking most of the other Transformers products in multiples rather than their usual MO of only having one or two of each thing. Which is to say if we burn gas and go down there twice a day for the next few days they MIGHT actually let some generations out on the floor for a change JUST in time for those of us with kids to give them to them. They did have some POTP Skrapnels.

    Guntersville Walmart has the Stocking Stuffers shipper near the toys section with Windcharger, Beachcomber, and Slash. Arab Walmart got the Legends at some point and someone had already commandeered the Beachcomber from it, but they're showing up. Enjoy!!

    Side Note: If you are coming on here and reading about the sightings from Arab (mostly from me) but not posting YOUR findings, I implore you to help us all out and circulate your discoveries.

    TRU at The Summit has several of the Pretenders. They probably had doubles or even triples. Plus, Windcharger, Shrapnel and a few from that wave.

    *Sorry I cant remember what the POTP Pretender’s official name is at the moment.

    I can update that.. as of about a mile ago they had NO Voyagers, two Jazz, a Dreadwind, a couple of Slashes, Skrapnels and a Windcharger and ALL of the prime Master multiple times. It seems in the mad house rush there, they are stocking/ running out stocking several times a day.

    Been checking about twice a day and I don't think TRU has put out any more Voyagers. I REALLY want/need to get the 6YO Grimlock today.... if I get word I can be over there in about 5 minutes from where I am.

    My wife just texted me from TRU Huntsville and they do not have Grimlock. She had them check in the back as well. My 8 yo will be a little disappointed not to have him, but he has a birthday mid-January and is getting all of the Legends and Deluxes for Christmas.

    Anyone seen anything about Trypticons showing up at discount stores yet? Was hoping we might could get him on a good deal. Not paying $100+.

    Looks like Target will be the first to get the PotP Leader class. At least they will be trackable through brickseek.
