Has anyone here tried Kohl's for movie figures? I know, I'm surprised too.

    I've never though Kohl's was good for finding Tranformers. Ever. But lo and behold, they had a whole display of them at my local store. There must have been 4 or 5 Arcees and Dreadwings each, and a healthy amount of Wave 2 figures as well. There was one Bumlbebee left, and I wasn't about to pass him up, heh (sorry folks, but he IS awesome). This is good news for fans that missed out on waves 2 and 3, though, considering some stores are already getting in 4 and 5.

    It's something of a blessing for me. Here on Long Island, it's the first new Transformers I've seen since Waves 1 and 2. Even though one lone TRU got Wave 4 and 5 deluxes, I didn't see 'em. I hope I can still get Longarm, Dropkick, and Payload.

    Never MIND the fact that Leader Prime and Megs are nowhere. You'd think Brawl wouldn't ship in his own wave. Sigh.

    Kohl's in both Fargo and Grandforks had lots of movie figs, no 08 Bumblebee's though.

    I got Arcee on Tuesday... Another member here hit them up on Saturday (I think it was Saturday...) and got the 'Bees.

    The only problem with our toy department is the location. DO NOT PUT UP A GIRL'S UNDERWEAR DISPLAY IN THE TOY SECTION, K? It's bad enough we're grown people buying toy's... Let alone grown people buying toys next to a GIRLS UNDERWEAR DISPLAY!!! (Dreadwing was found on said display)

    Saw two CC Bumblbees at a Kohls near me, bought one of them. Others I've been to have at least had Arcee and Dreadwing.

    My friend went to Kohl's for me shortly after finding out that they had TF there. They had about 8-12 Bumblebees there. I went back two days later to try to pick up one or two to help people out, and they were all gone. My guess is a scalper bought most of them, because there weren't too many Arcees there too, but a lot of the older deluxes

    I bought my BB at Kohl's. The price is higher though. I got accused of scalping when I offered them here for barely over cost plus shipping. Even though I left plenty on the shelf and explained the costs. Go figure.

    Scalper cleaned out my Kohls, but I did have a board member get me BB and Arcee from one :) 

    I figure I'm saving a lot of gas now, so the bit higher price of Kohl's is worth it.

    Yep. Found my '09 Bumblebee at Kohl's this morning. The cashier was unbelievably hot too.

    I bought Arcee at Kohls. Funny thing, there was like 3 or 4 of them at Walmart when I got 08 BB, and I figure'd she would be a shelf-warmer so passed assuming I could get here anytime. Boy was I wrong.

    Checked it and found nothing but cyber slammers and a really terrible toy section. It was like a Ross toy section kind of bad, with all kinds of stuff mixed and crammed onto shelves.

    I left when I found a Spyshot6 at $10.
