    Forget to mention that the wave 2 Playskool guys are now out. I spotted them yesterday. Was low on cash so I didn't pick them up yet.

    Kmart of all places had them along with the new Giant TMNT toys.

    Prowl-Bot
    Fire-bot
    Aero-bot 2 (car)
    And the blue Cheetor panther remold.

    Target had all the new Hulk toys for the movie. Strange that they'de release them 5 months in advance.


    Walmart had everything except Red Alert, Starscream, Scavenger and Jetfire.

    Blurr & Bendy Prime are showing up in force here so you guys should be getting them down south soon. Strange since you guys usually get the stuff before we do. I found Blurr before Xmas. He was buried in a bunch of other toys and no other TFs were on the shelves, but now Walmart has fully restocked again.

    I picked up the new prime at the Walmart in Casselberry on 436 about a week a go. Unfortuntely he was the last one they had, but they seem to be getting more and more shipments of supercons lately as before last week I hadn't seen a single supercon there in a while. Still no Blurr but I'm hoping to find him there this morning.

    A friend of mine keeps saying the work stopage out in California on the docks is what lead to the shortage of Transformers.

    That claim is false. As you noticed during the lockout, many toys (speaking of everything in the toy aisles) was being stocked and new shipments were coming in. The pace has not slowed since then. Several lines, including Transformers, were hard to find simply because they sold. For any line that is even just mediocre, one case of figures won't last too long.

    Exactly what I told him. They fly off the shelves. Case in point, Wednesday, Walmart here, fully restocked with Super Primes, Blurrs, the works (no Jetfires :( ). Today almost all gone. Walmart makes an effort here, to a point. Target does not. They restock the toy aisles two times a year it seems. Poor management I think.

    I found Jetfire @ Target in Brandon, Florida around 1 pm today. There were 3 when i got there and I left two for the next lucky TF hunters. So have at them guys and gals. By the way, the Causeway Wal-mart has wave 3 Supercons. Good luck.

    I would've added this sooner, but I was having a problem with site connection earlier today.

    Jetfire found at the Target in Delray Beach around 3:15pm on Saturday. There were two left after I picked one up.

    Finding Blurr and Super-con OP shouldn't be a problem in South Florida at this point. I first spotted them about 3 weeks ago. They're now in every Wal-Mart I go to and were in the two Targets that I've been to in the last week.
