    I saw that yesterday at the BloNo Meijer. I find it rather curious because I don’t think we’ve even seen all of the first wave yet, and probably won’t see it until toy fair on Saturday. I’m sure the forums will keep us all posted in case there are any sightings, but yeah it’s a little weird seeing tags for the studio series this early.

    No luck at my two closest Walmart’s with wave 2. But mejier is making room for the studio series and moved some of the last knight stuff. Got pics of the leader and voyager tags if anybody needs them. CAEB119B-B31B-4554-A2C7-693023366E7E.jpeg 4B049F1D-1E08-47AB-B6B2-F1528BD6AAD9.jpeg

    Rodimus Unicronus, 2 of them, along with two POTP Optimus Primes at TRU Louis Joliet Mall, an hour ago. Everything else was wave 1 stuff.

    No dice at the Streamwood Walmart as well.

    BUT I did find 3 (now 2) Rodimus Unicronus and 3 Leader Optimus Primes at Toysrus in Schaumburg. I know they're 5 dollars marked up but if you were planning on getting them online this is still cheaper.

    Thank you! Got one Rodimus Unicronus from Schaumburg TRU and there's still one left on the shelf.

    Walmart by Golf Mill hasn't got anything new, side note that's an awful Walmart.

    Glad you managed to snag one! I'm 50/50 on the Rodimus mold is general but this color scheme and head are pretty snazzy.

    It seems the wave 2 arrivals haven't quite reached IL yet. Will keep an eye out.

    Picked up one of two Rodimus Unicronus at the Belmont TRU early this morning. That said, make sure you price match to Target's wave 1 rodimus. currently listed at $40 for sale and I got TRU to match that!

    Oh shoot I completely forgot about that! I'll have to stop by with my receipt and get that matched. Thank you for the reminder, friend!

    There's a Rodimus (Autobot) and several Optimi at the Golf Road TRU in Niles. There was a Rodimus Unicronus but someone (cough) bought him. There's also a Thermidor at the Walmart across the street.

    How’s it awful? It’s the cleanest one around. Also one of the only Walmart’s I found the TLK deluxe wave with BB and Crosshairs last year.

    How did you price match? There’s nothing online from Target that shows their price.

    I got the first one this morning. You got lucky none of my friends wanted the second one.

    Hey guy!

    Just wanted to pop in an let everyone know I'll be selling off some random figures from my collection. Most are from the last 4 years or so. Some are opened, some are MISB. Just giving ya'll a heads up so you guys can get first dibs. I'll probably be posting it here at some point during the week.

    FWIW the guy at TRU told me that no, it has to be the exact same item. (ie he would not match Rodimus Unicronus to Rodimus Prime.) Probably comes down to what clerk you get and how much of a shit they give.
