    Cincinnati, Ohio: Classics Prime, BB, SS, Rodimus, Mirage, and CJ. Lots of Cyb. deluxes still around, loads of Metroplex, and a fair number of GF Primes. Half the places are sold out of Alts, but the ones that do have them are stocked with Skids, Meisters, Rollbars, and Ricoshelfs.

    Silverstreak, Shockblast and Swindle for the Alts, Optimus from Cybertron as well.
    Classics Jetfire is headed that way, and in the past Energon Ultra Magnus cluttered shelves as well.

    Hasbro UK must think with UM, since he's so hard to find on shelves elsewhere he's bound to be a big seller here and over supply him. Same for Jetfire and I think Evac was pretty bad.

    Metroplex , Repugnus, Shortround, GP Minicons, and (Alt) Shockblast.

    ...and the below pic is nothing but CD Hotshot and Downshift.

    Dear Toymaster, you suck.

    Around Southern NH it's the Optimus Vs Megs two pack and anything cybertron.

    Alts are scarse in these parts aside from a couple of Walmarts.

    If you're in the US, you could make some quick money selling those on ebay.

    San Francisco, California:

    Cybertron Demolisher... until just recently, this guy was everywhere in droves
    Classics Prime
    Classics Mirage (sad, he's such a great figure)
    Prime/Megatron 2-pack
    Cybertron Metroplex
    All Classic Minicon teams except Dino (which is irritating, since that's the one I still need)

    Sadly, I haven't seen an Alternator, Titanium, or LOC in stores for a long time.

    There are a few other Cybertron Basics, but those are the ones that come to mind at the moment.

    Anything cybertron is just not going anywhere. Why don't they just clearance it out? Classics wise most things move fast except for poor mirage and optimus. At one store i saw 16 mirages! such a shame he is probably the best classic deluxe figure. Alts? there arent any around anymore to call shelfwarmers. 6inch titaniums probably scourge for some reason.

    At Target stores: Cyb Metroplex and GF Prime, a few of the Cyb deluxes, Alt Sunstreaker, and classics Prime v Megatron

    At Walmart: Alt Riccochet, Skids, Prime v Megatron, Cryo Scourge, Menasor, Dark Crumplezone (every walmart seems to have been stuck with that case of Cybertron).

    At Fry's: Alt Prime, Alt Sunstreaker

    At all of them: Classics Prime (I hope it's because everyone has one by now)

    Other Classics don't seem to stay around for more than 10 days or so at any store except Fry's (more expensive than anywhere else). 6Titaniums go fast, other than Megatron and OpOp Knuckledragger, any titanium on the shelf is gone a day later.

    I am pretty sure everyone here can find the Ops vs. Megs DVD pack easily, along with the SWT Millenium Falcon.

    Alt Shockblast, along with Swindle and Silverstreak, have been on a constant release since they first came out over here.
    Ultra Magnus has left shelves, but I got mine on discount over a year after he arrived. Hasbro UK couldn't give that one away for a few months there. Ironic, huh? There was even a month or two not so long ago when I couldn't go to an Entertainer store without seeing the red version of Armada Thrust dangling from pegs. He never shelfwarmed, but given how he isn't meant to exist outside Japan there was a worryingly large number of them!

    When the whole 'Red Thrust in the Entertainer' thing popped up, I went to the Milton Keynes One, as I got there, they were opening the case of Armada Deluxes that he was reported to be packaged with.
    Once on the shelves:
    Powerlinx Cyclonus, Powerlinx Hot Shot, Airrazor, Cheetor, no Thrust, not one.

    But there were about 20 Energon Ultra Magni
