    As of Saturday afternoon, Bellingham Walmart had a full case of 4 Seaspray & 4 Cosmos. My brother bought 2 Seaspray. Left everything else.

    Rhode Island sightings have been abysmal. We're still on wave 1 of movie everything and have only received 1 case of Seaspray/Cosmos wave that went in a day at the Lincoln Target. We're finally getting in more SixShots and Black Shadows as well as Octanes and Blitzwings. Maybe Hasbro should open up a public company store in this state. They'd at least have better product selection than everyone else and know not to over order so they can stock the newer stuff, keeping and constant flow of incoming new goods and prompting customers to return again and again.

    Walmart in Pittsfield has TLK Voyager Scorn (I picked one of the two up), TR Voyager Blitzwing, and a set of TR Legends Sharkticons as items of note.

    I found Walgreen's Jetfire in Fall Fiver, today. He was the only one, and I bought him, so I don't know if this helps anyone. He's basically CW Legends Thundercracker scaled up to Voyager size, but with immobile knees. Here's some pics showing the different wing positions and weapon mounting points, and one with TLK Voyager Hound to show his size.

    if you call Peabody to make sure they still have them don't trust them cause that's what I did and for the last two weeks I've been calling tru and they told me the only tru in the area that had the movie mp primes were Peabody, all 3 times I called they said they either didn't have them, couldn't find them, the last time (today) its in the system but we can't find it. I went there and it was sitting right there in plain sight.

    Thanks Optimus, thanks to your post II got mine ,

    I got the feeling to take a drive to look for myself even though the tru employees said they didn't have them. I left 1 on the shelf.

    Sunday October 29th

    New England Transformer Collectors Group Meet and Greet. Merrymac Games and Comics at 550 Daniel Webster Highway Merrymac NH. 03054 has been nice enough to donate us a space to hold this meeting. The scheduled date is Sunday October 29th from 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm. Please consider this a formal invitation. If you would like to attend please PM me to RSVP. This is a free event; first come first served due to limited space. Also, feel free to bring a few bots to show off and display. So come on down and meet some fellow collectors. This event is hosted by JETFIRE-XL. Please feel free to pass this invite along if there is someone you know that might like to attend. Anyone who RSVP's by noon October 29th will be entered into a raffle for a free Transformer figure. Raffle tickets will be issued at the event.

Thank you all for all your support let's keep this thing going. (2) In celebrating our five year anniversary lets take it back way back.

What did you think about Hasbro's secret reveal and release of this figure. Is this the start of something awesome? Let's talk about it. Keep an eye out for our other great events planned for 2018 at this location. "Untill all have one

    Has anyone seen Misfire, Wingblade or Twinstwist at retail yet? I keep seeing posts on the recent finds thread making people who can't find these look crazy. I havent seen any sign of this wave at all in the Boston, Northshore or south shore area!

    Yes, I have seen at least one case (possibly two) at Dedham TRU, but I have not seen them again since. I was able to pick up one of each of the three new figures. The only other place I have seen the wave was at the Attleboro Toy Vault, but that was during HasCon weekend almost 2 months ago and as of this past Sunday, they haven’t been restocked. I’m optimistic that this wave will resurface around Christmas but I guess we will have to wait and see.
