    I was shopping in Syracuse and Watertown New york and going to the TRU and TRU Expresses i noticed they still had a decent assortment of Animated.

    I saw a couple of Rodimus, Ironhide, Lugnut and a lone Blitzwing and Snarl at a TRU Express and a actual TRU Store had Couple Rodimus, Ironhide, Lockdown and Oil Slick.

    Are you still finding any sort of Animated at retail.

    TRU is the only place I ever see animated still, aside from TJ Maxx/Marshalls.

    Only at TRU's, kinda surprises me to go in and see toys like Rodimus just sitting there.

    My local TRU finally got rid of the last few remnants of the line that had been collecting dust since 2008.

    Last time I checked, one of the TRU stores in my area still had a few Animated toys, mostly Cybertronian Mode Ratchets.

    There were a couple Rodimus Minors and Ironhides at my TRU last I was in there. If I were to look around, I could probably find some in the stores that aren't really used for toys, but have them anyway, like Zehrs. Grabbed an Earth-mode Ratchet from there about a week ago, and there was a Blackarachnia or two there as well.

    Gonna hit a comic shop downtown later this week as I'd seen a Shockwave in there. A Leader Megatron too, come to think of it, though I'll be passing on him as I'm not a fan of leaders.

    TRU loves carrying old stuff. They're always still loaded with TF Animated, RoTF, and tons of the old 80's Star Wars stuff.

    Same here. I'm shopping in DE stores for tax free love. I did see some new Animated at a small mom&pop collectible store at a reasonable price.

    At my TRU, I see about one or two Rodimi, several Snarls and Oil Slicks, and maybe a few Cybertronian Optimus Primes.
