    I troop build and most likely have extra of anything you're missing. Give me a list and I'll see if I can help.

    I don't know why this myth keeps getting re-told!
    1) Hasbro Toy Shop links directly to Hasbro corporate policies,
    2) Email and ask directly and you get the same answer.

    Why would Hasbro license their name to a random store? Who told you this is something Hasbro did? Exactly where does everyone get the idea that HTS is separate?????

    Also, your analogy with Hostess pies is inaccurate: Hasbro works with store chains to get their products out there. The stores do not design the displays themselves, and Hasbro sends out employees to check local toy aisles. They may not control distribution, but it's their responsibility to make sure their toys are displayed AND STOCKED properly. When there is a problem, it is unlikely for store chains to take time to investigate and solve missing TF deluxes - that's something Hasbro should spearhead, if not investigate directly.

    Seriously, let's just stop letting Hasbro sit on @$$ and say, "Im not that store chain; not my problem".

    But I'm talking about barren shelves everywhere, and you are likely explaining why Mobile gets more toys than small town ____. Sorry if I got confused!

    Had to pick up some medicine at the Athens Walmart this evening. Went by the action figure aisle and found the whole wave 2 of the POTP legends.

    I was on vacation and a guy from the board had hid them behind the knock off Transformers on the bottom I got Tailgate too.

    It was a nce way to end off the vacation.

    I can confirm that the wave 2 leaders are on sale for $30, at least at the Auburn Walmart. I bought an Optimus, another Optimus and an evil Rodimus are left. They've also got the remnants of a wave 2 deluxe wave.

    I found mine in the the toy section my Kroger has a few weeks back. I think it's on the same isle as the baby diapers or the kids' books.

    Anyone in or around the Bham area seen Elita-1 or Hun-grrr anywhere? I can't find them. Everything else new has been relatively easy for me to get but haven't seen new voyagers anywhere, still just Starscream and Grimlock everywhere I look.

    They were in the toy section at the Winchester store. The 72/Jeff Road Kroger still has at least the last time I was there a Repugnus and Nightbeat. The Winchester Kroger is really the only store I found wave 2 of the Prime Masters.

    Found Roadtrap, Battleslash and Tailgate at the Drake Walmart in Huntsville. I bought 1 set of Roadtrap and Battleslash, but there was 1 Roadtrap and Tailgate left on the pegs, along with multiple wave 1 Voyagers and a single Leader Optimus.

    It seems Elita-1 and Hun-Grr still haven't come to our area and every WalMart I go to is full of StarScream.
    Both Walmart and Target seem empty mostly in their Transformers section like they're waiting for restock.
    Keep an eye on Target, I found my Elita-1 and Hun-Grr at an Atlanta Target about a month ago. I think Walmart restocked with wave 1 and are probably waiting for these to sell through.

    The first ones I found were in a tray but I can't remember if it was just a random left over Easter candy tray or if they had special tray packs.

    I got out of work early this afternoon and check out 5below. Looks like they got in more of the Ramhorn wave. If anyone needs him go get him.

    Believe it or not I found the Prime Master Alpha Trion this morning at the Jeff/72 Kroger. If you want him he's all your no Alcie though.
