    How come no one post in this thread anymore?
    I am now at Boston for a business trip (I'm from Canada) and I'd like to contribute:
    TRUS at 366 Cambridge Rd, Woburn:
    All wave 2 basics, tons of G1 reissues at $20, Unicron at $30 (no Energon Unicrons though, but Armada Unicrons and Armada Unicrons in Energon packaging)

    Walmart at 77 Main St, North Reading:
    Energon Megatron x1 with a demaged box

    Yeah, as Boston's prominent Transfan I should contribute more. Here goes. Walmart in Danvers has tons of Megatrons, wave 2 deluxes and basics, Sunstorms, Prowls, Sideburns, minicon 6 packs, King Atlas, Desert Ruination and a ton of the minicon bonus packs.

    Target in Danvers has 20th Prime, wave 2 basics and deluxes and King Atlas.

    Why am I not posting? I've no interests in the Energon series. While they're pretty much new and keeps the toys fresh, the designs are rather poor. But I guess you can blame Car Robot/Robots in Disguise for that. For now, I'll focus my attention on the Alternators series.... that is, until another big thing comes around...

    I only post when there's new items on the shelves or when I go looking for TF's. Insecticon and Arcee started showing up on the West Coast a couple weeks ago, so it should be about mid to late April before they arrive on our shelves, and then sometime in May for Demolishor and whatever else has a Spring release date.

    Landmine has been around since mid-February. Didn't see him at the Wally*World in Danvers today. Plenny o' Megatrons, though.

    Best bet for Landmine may be the Peabody TRU at the North Shore Mall.

    It has been a rainy and unfruitful day today!
    (My goal was to acquire BW Season 2 DVD set and Landmine)

    Went to Danver Bestbuy and couldn't find BeastWars Season 2.
    Went to the Target next door and couldn't find Landmine. 1 King Atlas though for anyone who's interested.

    Then went to Danver Walmart still no Landmine, tons of Megatron
    (Went to Reading Walmart already last week, no Landmine, got a Megatron however).

    Then went to TRUS Burlington (close to my hotel, which I visted twice last week), and of course, no Landmine, haha. They've restocked and got some Ramjets.

    I guess I'll try my luck at North Shore Mall TRUS tomorrow as Lance Halberd has suggested.

    The Woburn Target isn't too far from TRU, you might want to check there. There's also a TRU in Meford that I believe had some Landmines. Not too far from that TRU there's a Target in Everett, and another in Somerville.

    Smallest TFs in Southern MA

    Located Smallest Transformers Series 2 at the Toy Vault in the Emerald Square mall in Attleboro today. A little pricey at $6.99 but if you want instant gratification this is the only place around here where you can get it that I know of.

    Found Demolishor on 5/8/04 at the Danvers Wally*World. Only one, on a peg behind a row of Snowcats and Prowls. Looks like this may have been the 1x per case of Wave 2 restocks (had the new comic, too). Still no sign of Arcee and Insecticon since I saw them on 4/21/04. At this rate, Mirage should show up first week of June.

    For any of you in Southeastern MA - the Walpole Wal*Mart just got in a new case of Basics. I saw one Arcee and two Insecticons. Both Insecticons were still there when I left.

    Eastern Mass around Belingham,Milford,franklin

    I used to post on He-Man.Org on the Mass. thread about Mass toy sightings and invariably all the sightings were like about an hour and a half to two hours away. I am wondering if there are any Transfans closeby - Bellingham Wal-Mart, Toys-R-Us, K-B Toy Outlet, Milford K-Mart, Milford Target (and the Framingham stores as well !) I used to run this first circle (minus the Framingham stores twice a week, and post anything new. If there are any Trannyfans from this area please post as well - lately I have been busy with stuff, and my run throught that circle has gone from about twice a week to about once a month. If you are from around this end and see anything please post!! Thanks friends-this is the way we get the things we desire.
    (Remember He-Man - what a great product, tears for its unnecessary dissapearance.)Still Transformers rule and cannot be torn down by poor marketing - I believe that the fans have spoken firmly and loudly about that. :ROCK :gouki

    Has there been any sign of Mirage in the Boston area yet? I haven't seen him around, but then I haven't been out a lot, either. I don't have a car to explore the 'burbs, and since they closed the KB Toys in Coolidge Corner my closest source of toys is gone.

    Since I'm financially busted right now, I'm only keen on finding Mirage and Shockblast when they hit the area. Any sign of either would likely motivate me to be short on rent money this month. :ev:

    I first found Mirage three weeks ago at the Wal*Mart in Salem, and that's what, less than 15 miles away? I haven't been out on a hunt since then, so I'm not sure if that was a fluke or he's reached saturation yet. A good thing about the 'burbs is that there is a Wal*Mart and a Target in every other town.

    As another person living in the burbs I can vouch for the truthfulness of this statement. There are three Wal-Marts and two Targets within the vicinity of Lynn and Peabody.

    Indeed. When I was visiting my family in the 'burbs of upstate NY, I was able to pick up Energon Megatron at the local über-Wal*Mart. They have one of those huge ones, with an entire grocery store on one side, that's open 24/7. Talk about crazy—but they had pretty much every current figure available. If only I had a car, I could hit one of the local stores. :( 

    I'm going to be in Concord, NH this weekend, and will probably check the Wal*Mart there. If they happen to have Shockblast in stock… well, I won't be able to buy him, 'cause I need the money for rent. Bah!

    It sucks having thousands of dollars of debt. Really, it does.
