    About as far from Waikiki as you can get, but I saw a Blitzwing at the Kapolei Walmart this evening.

    Keamouku (sp?) has no Blitzwing unless you are looking for the construct bot version. Generation deluxes are now $11.45 btw.

    I think that wave is long gone. Best bet might be to wait for a Ross/TJ Maxx release (if that happens) or Amazon. I've seen them pop up a little while back at TRU, but they were gone shortly after. You never know though. Our stores probably have boxes in back not being put out yet.

    Thanks everyone I went passed and picked up blitzwing yesterday, my wife also insisted I get sandstorm as well, so all the generations trips picked up on this trip yay.. Also cheaper than what they would be back home if they ever rock up in stores. Now just to consider if I should order and ship metroplex hahah

    Too bad our Costco doesn't carry him or not yet. He is actually the toughest TF figure to find right now in the islands. Good luck in finding one, I had to pile of loot the Takara version on HobbyLinkJapan. Congrats on your blitzwing and Sandstorm find. Walmart in Keeamouku (by Ala Moana) has a few Blasters and Springers if you are still looking for them.

    TRU had a bunch of platinum Ultra Magnus and the Grimlock/Brut sets. They also seemed to have found a case or two of an earlier run of Transformer Prime Voyagers. Bulkhead, Starscream and Dreadwing. Some new deluxe Generations (Orion Pax, Megatron)

    Target by the stadium had some of the new deluxe Generations (Hoist, Thundercracker, etc). Had a bunch of Springers and one Soundblaster voyager.

    Salt Lake Target had TFP BH Deluxe Wave 5 (Soundwave, Bulkhead, Smokescreen, Skystalker, Ratchet, Prowl, and Bumblebee). Picked up a Prowl.

    Off the subject of finding things, but anybody in Hawaii every buy from hasbrotoyshop.com and use the free shipping? What shipping method do they use? Just wondering if I order from them and use that free shipping method if it will arrive by Xmas. We all know that USPS Standard shipping takes 30 days of transit from the Mainland. I just was hoping that they say standard shipping but use a faster shipping method. Thanks in advance.

    I'm not too sure about HasbroToyShop. I used to order from them quite frequently, but then a few years ago they decided to charge a flat extra fee for Hawaii. So even with free shipping they would add an extra $15 or $20. I haven't ordered from them since. I hate places that charge an extra fee just because they can. It certainly might be a little more expensive to ship here, that is just ridiculous

    Same reason I don't shop there either. Their free shipping isn't free to Hawaii, so no deal. I've bought a few small things and had it shipped to my sis in Cali, but overall, nope. Have they changed the Hawaii shipping policy recently?

    nah, they still charge $20 "just cause" to Hawaii which sucks, I was just tempted with their "save25" coupon over the weekend which would have saved me $10 even with their $20 Hawaii charge. I couldnt pull the trigger becuase like everyone I hate the fact also that they tack on xtra money for no reason. I just was wondering what shipping method they used for their "free shipping".

    I remember buying from them once and they shipped the products Fedex. This was 2 years ago so it may have changed. The shipping was around $20 then even without the free shipping offer. I remember buying 3 TF figures. Basically, it seems like free shipping does not apply to Hawaii.

    Its so crazy that Amazon is selling some of the generations figures dirt cheap. Somebody posted a pic on Costco's Metroplex going for $40. Anyone know if Costco is carrying them or not yet?

    Still no Metroplex on Maui, I go at least once a week for lunch and always check. I doubt we will see Metroplex here on the islands but I going still keep my fingers crossed. Probably with my luck, they will start carrying it after I get one at a higher price...

    Pretty much everything went on sale for crazy cheap at least once this holiday season. Felt like I wasted a ton of money buying a lot of this stuff earlier. Good to make mental note of this for next year, lol.

    I doubt we see Metroplex here. It's already getting reduced at the mainland ones. On a side note, the HK Costco had Xbox Ones in stock when I was there on Saturday

    PC Walmart has the new Generations assortment with Waspinator, Goldfire, Dreadwing, and Skids. I want to say that they were ~$11.50 or so.

    When I went to Keeamouku Walmart, the pegs, about several of them, were all inundated with Waspinators. There was just one lone Dreadwing on the back of one of the pegs. I was actually amazed by what I saw.
