    Lynn Wal-Mart has two Powermaster Primes. Side note they were redoing their toy section a few days ago so they might be getting more in soon.

    I think that Hot Rod might have been sealed at Comicazi. The box was open but the inner bubble was sealed. I could not verify if it was real or a KO because the other masterpiece in that lot was a KO so I priced it low. The KO"s I priced at $29 bucks

    In the past week or so I have seen the RID Combiner Force 2 packs (Bumblebee/Sideswipe & Strongarm/Prime) at the Targets in Hadley and Holyoke. Those stores had almost no other TFs though. Very little restock since Xmas.

    Yesterday TRU in Springfield had lots of the later releases from RID (Ratchet, Starscream, Bisk etc.) Also a few TR Blasters.

    Thank you

    If anyone was still looking for a TR Brainstorm, the Walgreens in Medford (Station Landing) has a TON.

    Just picked up Kickback & Sharkticon at Target in Hadley. There was another Kickback and a few Bumblebees left.

    Thank you

    There was one Leader Class Titans Return Soundwave at the Westwood Target as of last night. I've had him since before Christmas (from HTS) but this is the first time I've seen him at regular retail, other than at the Norwood Newbury Comics on Halloween. Not many other TR figures on the shelf/pegs.

    If anyone spots the new Legends Sharkticon/Kickback/Bumblebee wave closer to the Boston area, let me know! They're starting to hit Targets now. Still haven't seen them at any of the Walmarts I usually go to.

    I found a full case of the newest Titans Return Legends wave (3x Bumblebee, 3x Gnaw, 2x Kickback) at Westwood Target today. I already had Kickback, so I took all of the Gnaws and one Bumblebee. Everything else is still in the store. They also had a lone TR Legends Laserbeak as well as a TR Leader Class Soundwave. I didn't even look at any of the other goofy-looking animated crap. Glad to finally find some Sharkticons at retail!

    Can anyone confirm that their TRU's are getting ANYTHING related to the TR line past wave 2? The TRU down here on the Cape has had nothing newer than the Voyager class Wave 2 figures. Everything else has been wave 1. Hoping my store will be getting SOMETHING new soon. (only store stocking within an hour's drive)

    Toys R Us has the least new action figure items of any of the chains. Haven't seen anything past voyager wave 2 for Transformers. Forget it when it comes to Star Wars, they are sitting on heaps of Dorce Awakens figures. Marvel Legends are all The Dr. Strange wave. They've given up on action figures. Even the Brockton store refuses to get their own Necca exclusives and when you ask them about if they are getting anything new they have no answers.

    If you're looking for the NECA figures, ask the store manager to order them. Adam used to be my store manager down here on the Cape and is really good at doing things like that. Could be that Brockton doesn't have a NECA rep assigned like we do down here.

    Thanks to Tomagnus for the tip about Twinferno, I wasn't aware that Wave 3 had hit Walgreens. In fact, I hadn't even been to a Walgreens since October/November when I was searching for Brainstorm. I already have Twinferno, Rodimus and Triggerhappy from that case (purchased from Walpole Walmart before Christmas) but I needed Breakaway for myself and another Triggerhappy for a friend. Knowing the way Walgreens breaks up cases into totes and distributes figures in their stores, I presumed that Twinferno's casemates must be at other nearby Walgreens.

    I ended up hitting 3 of the closest Walgreens to the Truman Highway store and here is what I found:

    Dedham:
    1X Triggerhappy
    1X Blurr

    Norwood:
    2X Brainstorm
    2X Highbrow
    1X Mindwipe
    1X Wolfwire

    West Roxbury:
    1X Breakaway
    1X Twinferno
    1x Brainstorm

    I purchased the Triggerhappy (from Dedham) and the Breakaway (from West Roxbury), everything else is still there if anyone wants it. These end up being $19.11 each after tax so they're a bit on the pricier side, but with the TF5 movie merchandise on the way (and these not showing up anywhere else for the past 2 months), I'm not taking any chances.
