    ok I used search and didnt find any vegas sightigns so im starting this one.

    My local wallmart just recieved 1.5 deluxe assortment which inclueds starscream.

    Alternator smokescreen also sfound at wallmart -but heres the kicker he was place in the car aisle with the other 1/24 cars.

    also wallmart is blowing out aramada eluxe for $7 each

    as for megas and up , almost everywhere theres prime, jetfire, tidal wave and scorponk. Still have NOT seen Ultra mags though.
    :( 

    Targets seem to be lagging behind when they're normaly first to get everything here.

    Toys r us has all teh reissues still and the regular aramada, no energon yet.

    Wal-Mart in Henderson on Saturday had Most the Super-cons basics, but no starscream, Ultra-Magnus, Scorpinok, or Energon Uni.

    Just got back from there, visiting the In-laws.:D

    Where the hell is Rodimus!?

    Has anyone seen Rodimus, Arcee, Insecticon, or even Demolisher in Vegas? I've been to both TRU's, 2 Targets, and one craptacular Walmart and haven't seen anything other than the usual wave 1 and 2 (with walls full of Ravage and Inferno!)

    If you have info regarding these missing Transformers, please reply 'cause I'm getting sick of driving out of my way to find only what I already have or don't want.

    Thanks,

    Sand Stinger

    Are there any cool toys stores in Las Vegas? You know, like a comic book shop that may carry older Transformers?

    Transformers Crossovers

    I posted last night that I found the new Crossovers here in South Reno. It was at a Wal-Mart but they only had five on the shelf.
    2x Hulk
    1x Venom
    1x Iron Man
    1x Spider-Man
    I went ahead and bought Hulk because he actually looked cool in robot and vehicle mode. I'm pretty happy with my purchase and hope that they come out with some cooler figures in the future, maybe Captain America or others? I'm going to head to the Wal-Mart near my home today to check and see if they have the new Universe and Animated figures. I'll post again if I find anything.

    Reno, NV

    So I went out today and stopped by two Target stores and two Wal-Marts and found me some goodies. At the Target in Sparks I found Oil Slick and Snarl and asked if they had Soundwave and Jazz in the back (I was told no and didn't want to bother because the service at that Target has always been mediocre). At the Target in South Reno I asked an employee to check in the back for the two missing figures from the wave I was looking for. They scanned, they delivered and now I have all four figures. I was also able to find last night 1, I repeat ONE Animated Voyager Prime! What an awesome figure and in all my stops between last night and today that was the sole figure around Reno. But I'm sure you could ask at Target (where I found it) and they might have one in the back.

    Good find! I'm going to head out to a couple Walmart's here in Reno today to check for the same thing, along with some some of the animated figures I've been looking for (leader class bulkhead and megs and maybe if I'm lucky voyager blitzwing).

    Stopped by Walmart and found nothing new, but also went by Toys 'R Us and found the new Universe Deluxe figures (Prowl, Sunstreaker, and Tankor all of which I bought) and they also had those miniature Universe toys. Also at Toys 'R Us was TFA activators and Universe Heroes figures.

    Found and bought both Leader class Animated figures at a North Sparks Walmart. Both are fantastic figures and highly recommended for Animated fans. The Megatron figure is exceptionally great, best in the line and best Megatron is a long time.

    Stopped by a Walmart in South Reno tonight and I was pleasantly surprised to see everything Transformers in stock! We're talking current in all Animated deluxes (soundwave, oil slick, snarl, jazz), Animated commander Prime, Leader Bulkhead and Megs. all Activators and Bumpers. And of course they had the new Universe toys (deluxes and legends) and there were the Marvel Crossovers as well. It was crazy seeing everything in stock and on the shelves in one store instead of having to troll Target, TRU, and Walmart. I am already current on all Animated and Universe so I'm kicking back until the next waves hit...which will come sooner rather than later I'm sure.

    carson city target is HORRIBLE.

    the walmart on topsy usually has better selection, they have lots of activators and loads of deluxe ratchet and blackarachnia. i scooped up the last soundwave they had.

    Last night at the South Reno Target I found Onslaught and Powerglide (bought both) they were the only two they had on the shelves. I went looking for Animated Ultra Magnus, but came away happy with my find. I'm still looking for Animated UM and Universe Acid Storm and Galvatron.

    You lucky bastard. I've been looking all over the Reno area for Galvatron and Acid Storm, not interested in Heavyload. The one and only Toys R Us here in Reno is overloaded with TF Movie toys and Wave 1 deluxes of Universe.
