    visited walmart and shiroyaki. shiroyaki had the disney tfs for $54 each. walmart was unboxing dotm wave 1 HA basics and legends. very good special on hawaiian host chocolates though; $2 a box.

    Has anyone come across those DOTM cinemasks yet? Never bothered looking out for them because I didn't realize they were 3D ready for the movie. Though I'm sure the theaters will carry generic glasses, I'd rather trip people out by walking in wearing a mask :lol

    I saw them at Toys R Us the other week. I'm not sure if they still have them. I was tempted to get them but I'm still looking for some of the figures first.

    As of today Toys R Us still had them in stock. I couldn't really tell from the package, but does anyone know for sure if they are designed to fit an adult head. I will totally show up at the midnight showing wearing one if they aren't just for kids!

    Thanks guys, I'll probably drop in on Toys R Us tomorrow after work. And hopefully they'll restock their voyagers with wave 2 so I can get Shockwave and Skyhammer then go on a loooong hiatus....

    Just giving everyone a heads up, the BOGO 50% off sale starting today at Toys R Us is a bit misleading. Despite the ad and shelf signs saying ALL Transformers movie-related figures and accessories, Cyberverse Commanders, Legends, and Cinemasks aren't included. They are on sale 10% off unadvertised.

    edit: Sorry, looks like this was already addressed in the new sales and coupons thread. Oh well, heads up for those Hawaii peeps that only read this tread I guess :dunce

    Not really into the movie stuff so I’m only speaking with limited knowledge but Target Salt Lake has gone full force with the movie figures and they got pretty much everything, about a dozen pegs of Mechtech stuff and other movie related merch.

    I guess Toys R Us got a lot of complaints about their misleading ad. Went there yesterday to pick up a couple Cyberverse commanders for my son and they automatically rung up with the 10% off plus BOGO 50% off. Also, Pearl City Walmart restocked a healthy amount of the later Generations (Kup, Scourge, Thundercracker, Wheeljack, Warpath!). So go get um and good luck!

    Sigh… I checked the Pearl City Walmart after work around 8pm and they didn't have any Thundercracker, Wheeljack or Warpaths left.

    I also checked the Ross in Pearl City to see if they had any of the "unreleased" RTS toys that have been sighted there like Grapple and Windcharger. That too was a bust.

    Did you check the huge DOTM display in front of the bicycle racks? All the new Generations were on the top shelf. The pegs in the usual section still has old stuff.

    I too checked Pearlridge, Pearl Highlands, and Kapolei Ross yesterday after work and no luck either. And what is it about EVERY Ross's toy section that it's always in chaos??

    It seems like that's only a problem out here, as i remember visiting a Ross in the mainland once and although the toy section wasn't really immaculate it was at least organized. I think the Ross employees out here either just don't give a fuck or they just gave up trying to keep it clean. It does make it a huge pain in the ass though as it's nearly impossible to find anything new or old. You never even know if they got it because it be hiding behind a mountain of crap.

    I doubt we'll be seeing the RTS stuff for a while. If it's just starting to hit Cali we're looking at probably about a week or two before anything hits our shores. That doesn't mean you shouldn't be looking, but you've got to take shipping by boat into consideration with sightings on the mainland, as i seriously doubt Ross is shipping most of their stuff by Air. It usually takes about 5 to 7 days for a freighter leaving California to reach Hawaii and then at least another couple of days before things can start to be offloaded. Got to give it some time. I just hope we can beat the scalpers.

    So before work I stopped by the Keeamoku Walmart. They didn't really have any of the Generations figures, but an employee was able to tell me that they had 150 in transit but didn't know when they would be arriving. I figured if they had some coming the others might too.

    After work I checked Mililani and they told me the didn't have any in stock or scheduled for delivery, but that the Pearl City had about 60 in stock. I drove back over to Pearl City and saw only about 20 or so on the shelf. After a lot of hard work I was able to get someone to bring a box out of the back.

    To make a long story short, I was finally able to pick up a Warpath and Wheeljack. I left the Thundercracker since I already have the BotCon one and am happy with that. I think they were packaged 8 to a case or so. That means that they still have at least a few more cases in the back of this wave. Good Luck everyone!

    Good luck with Keaamouku (sp) I found Generations Dirge and Red Alert and that was it, hardly get any cool generations figures there. I get all my figures mainly from Target. That's where I also got my RTS figures before it was clearanced. Should had been patient, never knew that Grapple and Windcharger would get Rossed or TJ marshalled. I bought it from a guy in Canada for $40. Could had got G1 United version instead for $10 more. Windcharger was free since I bought a slew of figures from him. Not bad I guess, though I wish I was more patient. Too bad I am waiting for a trade to get Warpath. Could had just got him now.

    Other small news: Got DOTM Powerglide, man does he look almost close to his G1 counterpart. Here I thought there was no hope for bayformers, I'm sorry if it offends anyone, but bayformer designs and concepts are ugly as hell.

    Since a lot of places here don't necessarily honor chain wide coupons, I thought I would share that Target will indeed accept the two coupons that they have available on their website.

    I was able to use the $10 off a Leader figure to purchase Sentinel Prime for $29 at the Kapolei Target. Since they are on sale this week anyways, now is the time to get them if you want them for quite a steal!
