    I was just at my local walmart, and they had 18 cases of the wave 5 deluxes sitting on a top shelf. there's definitely concept bumblebees in there. I was just curious, and if anyone needs them, I could maybe pick some up next weekend if they're still there.

    My local Target and Wal Mart both recently stocked up. I'd say that Hasbros' goal is for retailers to have plenty of stock for the DVD release Tuesday.

    I got the few I needed, and I picked up a spare BB as well.

    I was at Wal-Mart a couple of days ago and they had a bunch of FAB's but the only Deluxe I remember seeing was Jazz.

    Stores in southern NH are filling up fast. One walmart had easily 50 deluxes between the regular isle space and the pallets in the middle of the isle. Though Arcee and 08 Bumblebee seem to the the hardest to find of the lot.

    all we have is bonecrushers and swindles. everythingelse seems picked clean. once a new case comes out, the collectors get to it pretty quick.

    I have yet to see new style Bumblebee or Recon Barricade in stores. Luckily, I know someone with better access to stores that actually know how to stock things.

    Seen lots of stuff 'round here, 'cept Longarm. But that's probably just 'cause he's the only one I'm still looking for.

    things are pretty scarce where i'm from. i actually hit five stores today, and found almost nothing. one store only had two SS protos.

    did manage to snag Final Battle Jazz.

    The stores in my area have pretty much everything. CC BB is still kind of hard to find. I've only seen three on the pegs and I bought two of 'em.

    So glad I found him back in August.

    the two wal marts were full. one was pack with a lot of them. Good thing I didn't give my cash to scalpers online.
