    Target in Middletown NJ has one Omega Supreme. I didn't buy him. They also had a handful of Insecticons.

    For those who collect GI Joe & Star Wars, they had a bunch of Valor vs Venom Wave 3, minus the rare Snow Wolf pack. They also had some OTC and VOTC figures (at $10 a pop these are warming shelves already) while they only had Lobot & Cloud Car Pilot from the regular set. I almost bought CCP, but I went & bought a watch for my GF instead. :p 

    Target & Walmart in ASbury Park had nothing as usual. The Walmart there is particularly terrible. I haven't been there in at least 3 months and they still had the exact same items. Literally. Some ass sprayed a Universe Sideburn with silly string, and it was still sitting there, untouched. I resolved never to visit that particular WM ever again.

    Ive seen the one covered in silly string at that Walmart, haha its been like that for months. I spoke to one of the employee's there about new stock, she said look for the "Christmas push" to begin in September. So hopefully we will see some new stuff by then. Of note the Boscov's in the Monmouth Mall had 3 Silverstreaks, and 1 Hound. There is 1 Silverstreak left along with Sideswipe. I think Mopedicon beat me to the Hound, damn. Anyways, good find.

    Just got back from the Target in Holmdel and...

    There were 3 Omega Supremes...all three are still there. I couldn't afford the price tag, plus, I'm not sure I really want it. Perhaps when it goes on sale at some point, but not right now.

    There were a lot of Prowl's

    There was 1 Landmine...I almost took it, but decided not to.

    And of course...plenty of Ironhide's to go around!

    That's my report. Latah!

    Yup, that's where I found one of my Hound's. Did you notice the beat up Mirage? I was going to purchase it, but the box was beat up and had been opened, so I didn't want to chance it. Did you have problems with getting Silverstreak to scan? Hound wouldn't scan, so the lady had me run back and grab Sideswipe for a price check.

    I forgot to add that they had the Megatron Sword and Optimus Prime Blaster. Neither of which peaked my interest in the least.

    Anyone know where I can find a 20th Prime in Monmouth or Middlesex counties? I've looked in my immediate area and come up empty.

    Also Target in Middletown still had some $14 Unicrons as of yesterday morning, but they're way in the back on a clearance rack.

    The TRU in Holmdel has rearranged the action figures area. The Transformers section is now much smaller!!! They have nothing new there either.

    Except, near the registers, though, I found an Armada Optimus Prime Spin-Pop. They had just put them out. It's pretty neat looking. It does not transform though. It was rumored that it would. I bought one anyways.

    Didn't visit Target in Middletown today.

    And I refuse to go to KB in Shrewsbury.

    That's all.

    P.S. I haven't seen any 20th Anniv. Prime's anywhere in Middletown or Holmdel.

    I went on a large toy hunt yesterday into today. There is nothing new (aside from the Roleplay weapons) in the following NJ stores:

    Walmart - Union
    Walmart - Ledgewood
    Walmart - Mansfield
    Walmart - Phillipsburg
    Walmart - Mount Olive
    Target - Hackensack
    Target - Wayne
    Target - East Hannover

    There are 2 Mirages at the Walmart in Clinton and 2 Mirages at K-Mart in Randolph. Walmart in Boonton had Silverstreak, no Hound. The Walmart in Saddlebrook and the Target in Rockaway each had 1 Omega Supreme.

    NJ really stinks right now.

    Boscov's in Monmouth Mall (thanks to whoever mentioned them last week, I didn't even know they had toys) gave me their only E-Mirage and Alt-Silverstreak. They still had a Landmine, other than that nothing special. TRU across the street finally restocked a bit, but nothing new there either. Still glutted on Signal Flares.

    K-Mart in Long Branch on 36 heading towards Monmouth Mall has the Crystal Widow & Oil Slick Battle in a Box. They also have the basic wave with Arcee and Insecticon.

    The Target on Nassau Blvd in Princeton had a 13 dollar Unicron in the clearence isle. It looked pretty pristine. Nothing else good to be found.

    I was at the Wal-Mart at the International Trade Zone off Routes 206 and 46 yesterday, and they've got a whole lot of nothing. They had restocked their Alternators at least twice before with the newer cases, and I was able to pick up a Silverstreak about 3 weeks ago, but all they've had is a single Side Swipe keeping the shelf warm for about 2 weeks now. Their stock of deluxes is getting low, but they have about 25 Energon Megatrons and 8 Energon Ironhides taking up a ton of shelf space.

    Not too much to report from Monmouth County...but here it goes anyway...

    To no one's surprise I'm sure, there is nothing new at the TRU in Hazlet...except that they are still having that 30% off all TF's sale...hopefully that will clear enough stock so that we can see some new stuff.

    At the K-Mart across Rt 36 from the TRU was the Black Widow vs. Oil Slick set. They also had this nifty Armada Optimus Prime Pocket flashlight...so I grabbed one of those...there is still one left.

    But that's it...haven't been to Target in Middletown yet today, but I may get there later this afternoon.

    DEAD END!!!!!!! :ROCK

    I FOUND ALTERNATOR DEAD END!!!!!! (well, my gf found it for me :D )

    Walmart in Union has one more Dead end, 3 Hounds and 2 Silverstreaks. She found it after lunch today. Nothing else special there. Still though, who would have thought New Jersey would have gotten this anytime before Armageddon?

    Picked up a Hound at the Wal Mart in the International Trade Zone in Mount Olive. They had 2 Hounds, 1 Silverstreak, and 2 Side Swipes on the shelf when I got there. They were also in the midst of resetting their shelves for the fall season. The Transformers were moved to a different aisle. I didn't see anything else new of note, but I was so excited to finally see a Hound that I could have missed something.

    Target in Middletown has a Hound and Silverstreak (1 each) as of 8:10 this morning. I grabbed the other hound and Dead End from that case. :)  Looks like Target is getting the same new stuff walmart is now, at least with Alts. They also have a good restock of Universe figures, but I don't think there was anything terribly exciting.

    As of 10:50 this morning, that same Target still had the one Silverstreak and Hound, and as of 10:51 they were going out the front doors with me! Victory is mine!!!

    Ummm...other than that, there is nothing new to report there. Except that they did have some new Universe figures (as Orodruin stated). One of those Universe figures being King Atlas (of which they had about four).

    That's all for now...
