    Energon is here already? Usually we get things a month after their first sighted. ;)

    The Salem Wal*Mart has an island display of Energon Inferno, Hotshot, Rapid Run, Battle Ravage, Skyblast, Strongarm, and Energon Saber. Optimus Prime, Ironhide, and Treadbolt are still up in the storage space above the aisle.

    The Salem Target has Universe Depthcharge.

    Run out and get them before the Nor'Easter hits this afternoon!

    UPDATED 12/20/2003

    TRU, Woburn now has a whole mess of Scorponoks.


    I also posted this on MassTFans, here is the rundown for Energon

    TRU:

    Alewife - 3 Primes left, after I bought 1 and exchanged it for one that could stand. 1 Battle Ravage left after I bought the other. 4 Energon Unicrons. 3 Armada Nemesis Primes, and a few bonus deluxes with an extra minicon

    Medford - Lots of Primes on the top shelf, so you'll need to ask for assistance. Abundance of Ironhides and Treadbolts as well

    Wal-Mart

    North Reading - 2 Yellow Landfills $15.00. 1 Prime.

    Danverse - Lots of Yellow Landfils $15.00, they're on the top shelf of a totally unrelated aisle, with the contruction toys. Lots of Prime in a center display. Few Ironhides and Treadbolts on top shelf in TF aisle

    Target

    Medford - 1 Scorponok

    Woburn - Couple of Primes

    Somerville - 2 Treadbolt

    Newberry Comics

    Alewife - Few basics

    Burlington - Few basics

    This was my last hunt before the Christmas, because I'm not crazy enough to go to a store this time of year.

    Newbury Comics, on Newbury St. in Boston, had an Energon Saber set of Minicons today, until I left with it. ;) 

    For those interested in looking for more Energon figures at this store, or the other Newbury Comics stores, keep in mind that there's little organization to the placement of toys. I had to look incredibly hard to find this set.

    I need to drag my butt to FAO Schwartz later this week, to see how their selection's holding up. I'll report back on this store later.

    This would have been posted yesterday but I had to wait the forum account to get activated. Bleah....

    Alternators Smokescreen sighted at two Target locations. One in Everett near Wellington T station, the other at Somerville near Burger King. At the time, Everett had 4 of them. Supposedly there is now 1 left after purchasing 3 of them. Somerville location has 1 left after friend's purchase and his sighting.

    As of Feb. 2nd, the Stop & Shop on Harvard St. in Brookline has:

    (1) Destruction Mini-Con Team
    (3) Street Action Mini-Con Team
    (2) Smokescreen with Liftor Mini-Con

    They're placed in the same aisle as the Sugar-Frosted Chocolate Bombs, of course. Toys and cereal, quite the combination.

    I'll keep my eyes peeled for the forthcoming Stop & Shop-exclusive Energon BlackZarak.

    Found Cruellock and Signal Flare in the Danvers Wal*Mart. There was one of each. Bought Signal Flare, left Cruellock in hopes to lure more wave 2 figures out from the stockroom.

    Spotted 2 20th Anniversary Primes (grey gun) at Target in Marlboro next to Solomond Pond Mall off of rt 290. I have MP-01, but still such a nice feeling seeing him on the shelves... :D

    Black Gun 20th Prime found

    Black Gun 20th Prime found at TRU in Framingham. Only had two. I bought one (79.99) It's worth the extra $10.00 for the black gun. I wish my Masterpiece had a black gun too...

    Also plenty of Sideswipe and Smokescreen Alternators, and tons of the current re-issues.

    Picked up Divebomb, Snowcat, Prowl, Rodimus, Landmine and Universe Skywarp. My wallet screams in pain.

    The search continues...

    As of Feb 19th, 2004...

    Target (Everett):
    * Alternators Smokescreen: either 1 or 2 left... forgot..

    Target (Saugus):
    * It is not a sighting but it is something to note. I saw the pricetag (and stock space) for 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime and it is $69.99 if memory serves me correctly. A lady was at the same aisle stocking up the toys and I asked my usual questions. The answers were 'no' and 'cannot say because they don't give out information regarding collectibles.' Oh well. It's almost here... but I wish it'd get here already...

    Toys R Us (Medford):
    * Energon Rodimus, Prowl, Starscream, and some others that seem pretty new. I am unsure as to the names of the second wave of Energon figures since I pay no attention to the series (Oh how I miss the RID/CarRobot days).
    * Alternators Smokescreen: 6
    * Alternators Sideswipe: 6

    At long last...

    As of Feb 25, 2004...

    Target (Saugus):
    * 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime, grey-gun version. 3 (now 2, duh!) spotted. Anyone who lives in the area, now is your chance!
