    I remember hearing awhile back that Hasbro was wanting their legends line to be available at drug and grocery store retailers. I believe it was Botcon last year but I'm not sure. Has anyone seen any legends at these kinds of stores? Or are they not appealing to the buyers of these stores?

    Were they reasonably priced? I can't seem to find legends class figures around here anywhere but Toys R Us and all they have is 2 pegs full of Onslaught.

    See, none of my walgreens seem to have them. And I'm anxious for some wave 5 love. Only TRU and Walmart seem to stock them around here. I had assumed that the retailers weren't purchasing them.

    Theres been more than a few at the CVS and Walgreens in the Raleigh, NC area. Mostly a lot of the Universe Legends Soundwave and Universe Legends Cybertron Optimus Primes. They've been around for a while, normally about 5.99 a piece.

    The Target's here had wave 2 (Jazz, Megs, Hound) as stocking stuffers at Christmas but that's all I've ever seen of the little guys.

    I see them all the time at CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreen's. I wish places like Pathmark had 'em though.

    I don't generally frequent drug stores much anymore, but I've seen them at Walgreens for about $6 each recently. It was a mix of Cybertron and Universe. But I can usually find Universe at Wally World for $5 still, and Meijer still has some of the Cybertron ones as well.

    I picked up my Legends Red Alert at an Aldi's grocery store a while back. It's nice to see TFs sold in different places like this, reminds me of the 80's.

    In Canada you can pick them up at Loblaws and Pharma plus. Actually Loblaws sells all size classes. Pharma Plus sells one legend though for like $9.99.

    My local CVS has sold Legends figures since Cybertron wave one, and last time I checked (Christmas) had Universe Megatron, Jazz, and Hound. I think they charged $6, maybe even $7 for them, but a drug store charging more than retail for toys is the norm. They want $15 for the deluxes they have.

    I've seen 'em at Dollar General. They also had a bunch of G.I. Joes for 3 bucks.
