    2 Trypticons at Niles TRU this morning. Also saw Target exclusive 3 pack TLK Tiny Turbo Chargers at Melrose and Niles Target. If anyone is looking for TLK series 2 blind packs, I have some that I picked up in FL back in July. I haven't opened them so you would have to decode the package. Haven't seen any series 2 packs around here at all. There's a couple Rubiks Primes at Golf Walmart in the clearance section for about $2. I was able to find at other Walmart for 50 cents.

    I don't think they've been spotted anywhere in the U.S. yet.

    Glendale Heights Target on Army Trail has 1 Voyager Megatron and 3 Hounds left. I hid the Megatron behind the lego Star Wars Millenium falcons a few aisles back for some lucky soul

    All of these have been found if you were to look on the previous pages. I've only found Wave 3 Scorn at one Walmart Store. Got Nitro by ordering on Walmart.com and shipping to store. Both are sold out on the site. They never had any photos and found the upc's in a different thread. I believe they're coming out with the DVD release and newer waves too that we haven't seen yet. Found all 3 Cyber Batallion figures at the Walgreens by my house. Only 1 of each on the shelf.

    I wish I knew about that. I'd be extatic to find Whirl just randomly about.

    Back in late winter or early spring, Cicero Target had a few at full price while Ross next door had a crapload of them for $10. Saw the Sky-Byte and Whirl at a Target near Stratford Mall around late June/early July and saw Whirls in random other stores at different times including mine. I can't help but think the only reason why I'm still not coming across them is because I haven't been actively searching for much.

    The Trypticons... the Tryps with the Gyp Hips.... their legs are really tight, and difficult to ratchet, right? Mine move pretty easily. Does that mean I don't need to modify them?

    Sounds like you're good. There's something about the tail being bad for some too. You can find more info in the Feedback thread for TR Trypticon. Gotta get one for myself to see if I get lucky with a good one.
