    Totally forgot to post this. Grabbed Trypticon from ThinkGeek in the mall too while I was up that way. A bunch of SDCC stuff was at TG too. Pretty good haul.

    Target Cumming has both Leader class TLK Megatron and Optimus, along with the rc Squeeks, Voice changer Megs and Bee, and the new All Spark figures. They even had turbo changer multipack. Sadly no updates on the Titans Return line. I just found out from a guy that works there that some collectors come in and grab them as soon as they come in. So either my area has a lot more Transformers fans than I thought (which is cool) or worse case scenario it's a few scalpers. I'm really hoping it's the former.
    Anyways anything in and around the Atlanta Area is a bust. I'm going to have to travel north if I have hopes of finding anything.

    You're driving all over the place spending time and gas money but what are you looking for?

    I'm not driving all over the place. I'm making calls as well, so as to NOT spend gas money. I'm not that stupid. Doesn't matter what I'm looking for anyway.

    Okay, bad assumption on my part but not sure why you're so defensive. If users here don't know what you're looking for, they can't tell you where to find it. It must matter to you to complain about it, not sure why mentioning it would matter.

    In my experience, everything has eventually made it to the Atlanta stores and warmed for a few weeks before selling out.

    Okay okay. Not trying to be defensive. Just tired and frustrated at the matter. Not with anyone here. And it's not so much about what I'm looking for, but the stores closest to me hasn't had an update since the Rodimus wave, and it only recently got an update on the Legends TRs. Never even saw the Topsin Wave there.

    I'm looking for Titans return Windblade. It keeps saying it's in stores on the target websites. I know that the sites aren't reliable, but I made calls to the stores nearest to me anyway. Each one said they are either out or they had just been purchased. The guy I talked to at my target even said they aren't getting another shipment of TRs for a very long time.

    Again, Sorry if I seemed defensive.

    So I need someone to make sense of this to me:

    Went to the TRU in Fayetteville and they had 2 Masterpiece Movie Optimus on the shelf. Cashier says they can't sell it to me until...



    November??????

    Are they re-releasing The Last Knight during Oscar season?

    That doesn't make any sense. Why would they put the item on the shelf and then tell you they can't sell it to you? Sounds like someone made a huge mistake and put them out too early or the cashier wasn't doing her job well. I'd have asked to speak with the manager for a better understanding of the situation. I would bet on that the MPMs were probably being put out too early, if it weren't for the fact that they were being put out everywhere else. And they can't be holding the items for people. Last time I checked, TRU stopped that awhile back apparently.

    Hey guys, somewhat off topic, but since they're hard to find.. the Stockbridge Walmart has at least three Nintendo Switches for the regular price as of this morning.

    Titans Returns Windblade popped up at my local Target, won't help anyone though since I got the last one. Left Twin Twist though.

    TRU Northpoint has several MP-10 Optimus and two TLK Skullitrons. They als had several Cybertron and two legion packs of Bumble Bee and Megatron. Nothing on TR. Though they have several complete Voltron boxes if any Voltron fans here are looking.
