    The brick seek trick worked! Just got leader rodimus prime at the target in Buena Park. They still have 1 Optimus in the back.

    Got my leaders at El Camino Real. Showed limited stock on brickseek.com on most stores around me this morning.

    So, limited stock is starting to show for the Voyagers in my area of San Jose. Would appreciate if someone were to pick up a Grimlock or TLK Crosshairs for me. Thank you and sorry that I'm being a pest.

    1 Micronus, 1 Liege Maximo, 1 Jazz, and a handful of non-Slash legends at Modesto TRU.

    Hit TRU Elk Grove and Roseville yesterday and only thing notable was one Voyager Starscream at Roseville. Both had PotP legends and a few Jazz and Dreadwinds. Still hunting for Grimlock

    Dreadwind seems to be the pegwarmer of the wave; every store I go to with POTP Deluxes has multiples of him and fewer to none of everybody else.

    Probably explains why he's so depressed. Speaking of, I haven't gotten him yet. Is he good?

    If you like the CW Aerialbots, you'll like him. Strangely enough, he's my favorite of the wave.

    For whatever reason he feels a little weightier and more substantial than CW figures.

    And I’m not sure if it’s just me, but the plastic on dreadwind feels a lot more high quality? He just feels like such a more solid figure, and has pretty solid QC with the joints and hinges too. He’s definitely the pick of the wave in my book

    He's easily my favorite of the wave, though that is admittedly due to how disappointing I found the other three figures.

    I remember when I was shocked at how cheap and flimsy the CW figures felt; now tbe CW build quality feels luxurious by comparison with the newest molds. Sigh.

    Got both POTP Leaders at Culver City Target (on Jefferson). Brickseek seems to be on it as I checked before I bought them and they were “Limited Stock”, then checked after I bought them and they were out of stock.

    According to brickseek, there’s probably a case at the Westwood Target that has yet to be claimed.

    Westgate Target in SJ on Saratoga, either I got a guy who didn’t want to go to the back or brickseek was incorrect. Showed stock of POTP Leaders, but he looked up the DCPI and said they didn’t have any.

    Nothing was out on the shelves, and I didn’t ask him to look up the voyager DCPI. I figured either Brickseek was off or he wasn’t interested, didn’t want to waste time running through numbers at that point.

    Edit: Brickseek shows the Plant target as having some Leaders, might check there this afternoon. If I do I’ll check Voyagers as well.

    Pleasant Hill target could not find the leaders in the back that brickseek says they have....
    Then again, the on site store inventory showed 0 in back room.
