    Nice find. I'm kicking myself for not opening the boxes of Wave 3 deluxes I saw at Wal-Mart last night because I went back after work today and of course they didn't stock the formers. But...the awesome news is that I also decided to stop at Target on my way home and found this.....................................................................................

    I know, I know...it's awesome! Target only had one so I swooped in to buy it. I'm surprised that here in Nevada we haven't seen the current wave of TFA deluxes: EG BUmblebee, Sentinal Prime, and Swoop. But I'll take Ultra Magnus in confidence.

    Should have posted last night, but I found Ironhide and Stormcloud at Wal-Mart. It wasn't the Wal-mart I saw the boxes at the other day, but the Wal-Mart in Sparks (decided to stop after a trip to Costco). Ironhide has a terrible alt. mode (but we knew that) but I guess it's somewhat forgivable because his robot mode is pretty sweet. Stormcloud is a repaint of Powerglide and I much prefer Stormclouds' paint scheme to Powerglides.

    Another quick post...

    Went around town today and found a couple things. I found Silverstreak at the Kitzkee Ln. Walmart. It was the only one to be seen, but the toy section looked ravaged so they probably had more at one point. Found Sideswipe at the So. Reno Walmart, again it was the only one they had. I bought both the figures and have to say that I think they are much better than their previous painted versions. In other news, the Reno Target had stocked one more Animated Ultra Magnus (surprising, I know.) So If your looking for one, Target seems to be the place. Still no sign of Swoop, Sentinel Prime, or EG Bumblebee (wondering where they are hiding?).

    so far, none of the carson city walmarts nor target have any of the new animated toys. and it makes me sad.

    i may wait a bit till shockwave comes out before i get swoop though. cos i'm going to be getting henkei skyfire in the next couple weeks. but we'll see. knowing me i'll see swoop and be like DO WANT and buy him anyway.

    Wasn't looking for anything tonight but I had to stop at Wal-Mart after seeing a movie tonight to get ingredients for dinner and some stuff for lunches next week but of course I couldn't just skip the toy section. The toy section didn't look like it had been stocked in weeks but on the shelf was one lonely Universe Tread Bolt...so I bought him. Haven't opened him yet but he looks pretty sweet. Back to making dinner.

    topsy ln walmart no longer has their displays up, but deluxes are still marked down to $7.77 which is good. no new stuff, loads of animated ratchet and blackarachnia though. will check retail rd walmart tomorrow after work. all i want is the robot heroes ironhide/kickback set. that's all i ask! and possibly a deluxe or activators bumblebee to send to a friend for a gift. maybe an activators starscream for her too.

    i did cave and got henkei skyfire. he's coming this week. ^^;

    topsy ln walmart FINALLY got sentinel prime. after how long?! but no sign of swoop. and no one has ultra magnus. i almost got sentinel, but didn't. i may get him later. skyfire needs something to sit on.

    target's site is taunting me, saying they have shockwave in stock. so i called, gave them the item numbers, they're like, "oh yeah that's here!" WRONG. they used that one number that's on ALL the voyagers. all they have is cybertron mode megs. baaaaaaw.

    i am so anxious for shockwave. and for swoop to finally show up here.

    one thing i have noticed everywhere i go: there is a lot of ratchet on the shelves. D:

    Here in Vegas Swoop is everywhere, along side sentinel Prime and Elite Guard Bumble Bee. Let me know if you need one.

    Its good to see people updating the Nevada Board even though it looks like we are spread out.

    PS the 25th anniversary Prime is out here in vegas for 69.99 OUCH.

    just got back from a walmart trip. both carson city walmarts have 25th anniversary prime. and retail rd walmart has one ultra magnus in. but his face looks like total crap. the paint job is so bad. ><

    almost forgot. retail rd walmart has universe legends hound and red alert.

    went on a run the other day, found lots of stuff.

    got activators thundercracker at target, since they're cheaper by like, a dollar or so. retail rd walmart had him too. i want activators megs so bad.

    also finally got swoop at topsy ln walmart. along with movie jazz and arcee.

    and at target, in the little boys' section, they have the knit hats in. there's one that's got the autobot symbol on it, and you turn it inside out and it's got the decepticon symbol on the other side. it's only about $6.99, and it says one size fits all, and they're right. i got a damn big head and it fits me the way i like my knit hats.

    when i get off work tomorrow, i will look for activators megs again. and i'm toying with the idea of ordering animated shockwave next week.

    Haven't looked for any formers for a while now, but I was picking up some stuff for next weeks big dinner so I gave in and checked out the toy section. Nothing really new to report except that I found Activators Thundercracker, Megatron, Grimlock and some Variant of Lockdown (Bandit or somthing). I bought the Thundercracker, Megs and Grim...all pretty sweet.

    Went to the new Target tonight out in Sparks to look for some stuff for my Boss' baby shower this weekend and I decided to check the toys. Nothing new, except for the new Stealth Lockdown pack (x1) and the Ratbat two pack (x1)...I ended up buying both as well as a G.I. Joe (Battle Armor Cobra Commander). I love the Stealth Lockdown and highly recommend it, even is you already have the regular deluxe.
