    Energon has arrived at the Danbury Toys R Us.

    There was a handful of Ironhide, Treadbolt, and Optimus Prime (I touched none, as I had other business)

    Picked up Skyblast, Battle Ravage, Strongarm, and the Energon Saber for less than 30 dollars! I will get Hot Shot and Inferno (Inferno First, Hot Shots head bother me.) but I throw a little tidbit out to you also Three words. Venom vs Valor. :D  It was there and I can confirm, Two Duke vs Cobra Commander packs, 4 Cobra Venoms, and one Tigherhawk with Ace. :thumb :

    Energon Tidalwave found at the Meriden Target. He is still there. Just hanging out with four or five Armada Tidalwaves.

    Starscream found at the Newington Toys R Us. About 5 of them are left.

    If you find Altenators, PLEASE let the word out Connecticut Transfans !

    Add the New Britain / West Farms TRU and Tar-jay to the Energon list. Tons of 'em. Still no Alternators that I've found, but I'll brave the crowds on Saturday for another looksie.

    I'm going to assume that the Danbury Toys R Us has all of Energon Wave 1 (except for Unicron). The reason I will assume is because last night I saw Scorponok (me wants!) and Optimus Prime, but the Deluxe/Super-Cons and Mega/Max-Cons were basically picked over. Though I didn't see evidence of Omnicons and Terrorcons, but that could be the excessive build up of Mini-Cons that no one wants.

    He's here, kids! Found Smokescreen today at the Newington Tar-jay. Picked up one for myself, one for my brother, and left two on the shelf. New Britain does NOT have him, but Meriden and Enfield supposedly have (had) four each.

    I litterally saw this post, ran out to the car and was at the Newington Target by 8:40 PM. Nothing. Damn !!

    I even gave them the DCIP number and they told me that they didn't have any in the back.

    Where they in the Transformer section, or were they somewhere else like the hobby car section?

    Went down to Meriden and it was the same deal. Nothing.

    Must have just missed them.

    Lisbon Wal Mart had a couple of pegged Energon toys up Friday night. A couple of the Saber Minicon repaints, a few Battle Ravages, 1 Hot Shot, and 1 Strongarm, or whatver that yellow jeep guy is called.

    They were in the regular TF section. My brother found one earlier today, and hid it in the Barbie section behind Japan Princess Barbie (he's a bizarre kid) under the presumption that I'd go back to get it, or that he'd pick it up for me. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN! I bought him one for Christmas, and he's under the presumption that I'm waiting for it to show up cheaper at Wally World. As a poor college kid, he couldn't afford it today, and I'm terrified that he's gonna go back and get it anyway.

    So basically, I ran around to three different Targets last night because of your posting, and you had hid the only Smokescreen left in the Barbie Isle !?! I was at the store 1/2 hour after your post, I was sure I would find one...

    Urge to strangle is rising, rising !!


    Found a Smokescreen at the Manchester Target, there one none left.

    Urge to strangle is lowering, lowering.

    No, hiding toys is against my religion. I already got the two I needed, and my BROTHER hid the one he found in a strangely heartwarming display of fraternal loyalty, not knowing that I already snagged one as his Christmas present. He committed this heinous crime a solid sixteen hours after you went to Target, so they must've put it back up on the shelf during the morning restock (or so I would assume).

    Ahem. In an attempt to remain on-topic, I saw an Armada Hot Shot at pretty much every store on God's green earth, including Stop & Shop. Does that count?

    Well, they must have come last night on the truck, because I checked every Isle of the Newington Target last night, in vain. I also gave the stocker the DCIP number and he said there were none in the back.

    I find that if you don't find a toy before Christmas, you might as well forget about it until mid-February. The post-Christmas toy hunt is always abysmal. The shelves never get stocked.
