    1 each of the POTP leaders at Target in Everett.

    They look a lot better in person, but at $45 I still can’t bite. Optimus especially looks cool, so I’ll hope to grab him on clearance some day.

    So there is a ton of stuff on Route 9.
    Target has PotP Leaders, and still most of the TLK stuff shelfwarming. Maybe some PotP smaller Wave 1. They don't look like they've been seriously restocked in a while though.

    Toys R US has TLK shelfwarming stuff, and a Fortress Maximus, 3 $150 Primuses that will never ever sell, and PotP Wave 1 all except Leaders including Grimlock and Starscream. And plentiful. They're all there Prime masters, Legends, Deluxes and Voyagers. There is also a TR Krok hidden on a peg if you missed him.

    I didn't go into Framingham Walmart because it's a hole in the world. Seriously, the Walmart I used to go to in Pittsburgh was clean and bright. This one I want to wear a hazmat suit and bring a flash light.

    Lastly just to confirm, Babies-R-Us has the "store closing" sign, but Toys-R-Us does not and there is no unusual sales, so that TRU should be staying open.

    The Walmart where Rte 6 meets Rte 118 (just off exit 3 of I-195) has clearanced TR. They had lots of Deluxes for $10 each (no Wave 5, though), and Broadside and Megatron for $20 each.

    Dedham TRU has almost exactly what you just listed from the Framingham TRU. At least a dozen wave 1 Prime Masters. No Leaders yet though.

    My friends and I have been referring to the Framingham Walmart as "The Framingham Asylum" for over 15 years or so now. It's pretty bad in there. The only two Walmarts that I've been to that are marginally worse are the Worcester and Salem Walmarts. I refuse to ever set foot in the Worcester store again, unless it's an emergency. The tidiest and best-looking Walmart I've ever been to is in Leicester.

    Anyone spotted the Evil Rodimus leader figure yet? He's been popping up here and there around the country. Wave 2 Legends showed up at a NC Walmart recently too but they weren't in their system.

    Grabbed PotP Legends Wave 2 Tailgate, Battleslash, and Roadtrap this afternoon at Walmart in Pittsfield. There should be a couple left of each on shelves. Also bought a PotP Leader Rodimus Unicronus... I was shocked to see this in store considering how Berkshire County is typically far behind the rest of the country with retail Transformers. There's one PotP Leader Optimus left, and I recommend it highly.

    It is amazing that you can go into the Natick mall and all the other places around there that seem high dollar, then you walk into the Framingham Walmart and it feels like you are in a dead zone of boarded up trash.

    Back on topic. I found Evil Leader Roddy at the Leominster Walmart along with an Optimus. I bought the Optimus and left the Rodimus since I already bought the regular Rodimus Prime for my son and he isn't getting both.

    There weren't any Legends or Deluxe Wave 2 which I find odd since the leaders were there. Maybe they are waiting to sell off the 15 clearance SeaSprays they have.

    WalMart in North Attleboro has lots of Roadtrap, Battleslash, and Tailgate. They weren't in the system as of tonight, and it took them forever to get the price, so maybe be prepared for that. Only other POTPs were 2 Dreadwinds.

    I ended up bringing slash up and they rang in three since the legends were not in the system.

    Battleslash, Roadtrap, and Tailgate were spotted at Oxford, Chicopee, and Springfield Walmarts (via my girlfriend and a friend).

    Springfield and Oxford didn't have any Tailgates, and Springfield doesn't have either 3 now (they were bought).

    Did you happen to notice how many were left?

    I haven't had a chance to make it over there yet.

    Grabbed a Hun-Grrr at the Brockton walmart this morning. Left an Elita 1 behind. Caught up until wave 2 Deluxes start showing up in our area.
