    I am putting this here beyond what was listed in the Ohio Sightings forum.

    We have confirmation that Transformers Animated figures have been sighted in Cincinnati just in time for BotCon.

    I wonder if more stores will get stock in Cincinnati beyond K-Mart Forest Park area?

    I just picked up my own Animated Starscream and Megatron figures for my collection. This Starscream beat the one I'm getting from Hong Kong through another fellow TFW member.

    I hope only good people in the community or kids get them. I'm hoping that the scalpers don't get their mits on these first.

    I'm not going to run out and waste gas just yet. The odds that the Animated toys will show up early in New Jersey are slim to none. I'm not that lucky.

    i remember seeing the movie toys out early at kmart last year, but when i went to buy a couple they were like "oh, these aren't in the computers yet. someone must of put them out on accident". needless to say a week later they were still out on shelves and the release date wasn't for another couple weeks. walmart pulled the same crap.

    Should we start up a massive Animated "Wants" thread for those of us who don't live in or can't travel to Ohio???

    There was also the previous KMart sighting last month or the month before in California, I think.

    It's probably more of a isolated incident than outright release.

    Tamo's sighting in Cali was probably a fluke. I'm calling this one "testing the waters." It almost makes sense for Hasbro to try and push up the street date, and I think this is how they're trying it. Also, if I recall, the Energon BTR stuff was tested in a similar fashion in the same general region.

    Could very well be. Although KMart has a history now of breaking street dates and more than likely will not allow people to purchase them once they get to the cashiers.

    It happened a lot when the movie stuff first hit the shelves. And yet they continued to not take them off the shelves.

    It's probably worth a try for most to hit up their KMarts and hunt for them. I think I'd rather not deal with the headaches and frustration. They'll all be out in due time. And after that they'll be warming shelves. :lol

    :jawdropper:  I REALLY hope this wasn't an error. I really love how they did some of the toys, such as voyager Bulkhead and deluxe Ratchet. And after seeing Peaugh's reviews on youtube, I only want them more.

    You aren't supposed to say that! I just paid $38 to get a Prowl from one of these guys (on Thursday, actually)... Now my wallet hates me. And Kmart.

    So unexpected, they will take 3 or more months to get over here, so that gives me time to save since hurricane "Movie 2007"
