    Clark Target finally got Unicron. I snagged one, and there was one left on the shelf when I left, and I wouldn't be surprised if they had more in the back.

    Ebay:
    It's unlikely.
    Most stores are only getting 2 at a time.
    And most stores are selling out within a day.

    TURNERSVILLE
    VOORHEES
    CHERRY HILL
    DEPTFORD
    MARLTON

    All these Targets got him in last week, each store only got 2, and each store is currently sold out.

    New Gobots found...

    Not sure if ths is news to anyone, but I found the following in Jersey, South Plainfield Wal-Mart:

    Strong-Bot: Yellow Dump-Truck
    Scrap-Bot: Green Bulldozer (NOT the remold we thought we'd be getting as a steam roller that Takara had)
    Buzzer-bot: Motorcycle (Waspy reformatted!!! He is SO happy in bot mode, very cute.)
    Flash-bot: Turqoise Pick-Up truck. (I am concerned that there may be a variant of this, as the pics show a dark blue and silver version, which looks a bit nicer. It could be that it may represent a later release.)



    Items to note: TIGERTRON!!! Not Tigatron, but close in name, oddly, enough its that Tony the Tiger paint scheme we've seen for quite some time. Its nice to see that we're actually getting this as shown on the packaging,

    Are these all "Go-Bots" only? I mean no Autobot symbols?

    (Please tell me that Tigertron has that little symbol)

    I couldn't tell what symbols Tigertron has as the cross-sell pic is very teeny...BUT

    So far it seems that:

    Takara has the Autobot symbol
    Hasbro has the Gobot symbol

    ONLY difference so far, besides the Steamroller remold.


    But...but...don't let that stop you from getting Waspy...once you see him, you'll want to hug him...trust me. He's got a bigger grin than before...

    I saw Hauler-Bot in Wal-Mart in Bowie, MD last night.

    He is very big and looks pretty cool. He has the Go-Bot symbol, not an Autobot one.

    I don't have an Go-Bots yet, but I may get Hauler.

    I don't understand why they've removed the Transformers labels from these little guys. I'm pretty disgusted with the decision. I've picked up all the 1-2-3 TF's, the Playskool TF's, and the TF: Go-Bots there are. The ones I couldn't find locally I bought on eBay. I've not opened any of them, and haven't let my wife open them, even though she wants to. I was saving them up for when we have kids.

    But I stopped collecting them about an hour ago. Or rather, I should say, Hasbro has stopped making them. I found Speed-Bot Dragster and Hauler in Target, and had them both in the cart. Then I noticed something odd...it doesn't say Transformers anywhere. I looked at all sides of the box. I looked at the copyright info. Then, to my horror, I saw the cute Auto-baby symbol replaced with a "G". I took them both out of the cart, and when I got home I dug out the receipt for the new Silver-Bot I picked up recently. I'm taking it back...didn't notice at the time that I wasn't buying a TRANSFORMER, but now that I know, I'm not interested.

    Sounds silly, maybe, but I wanted my future son(s) and/or daughter(s) and I to collect Transformers and Star Wars together. There's nothing wrong with a generic transforming toy robot, but I'm not going to make a point of buying all of them. That's not what I collect. I collect TRANSFORMERS.

    TRU in Union and Watchung both had Unicron and the RiD Tiny Tins Spychangers, and I saw Go-Bots Hauler in Rt. 22 Union Target.

    Erm...not sure. Don't know North Bergan very well. if you take the Parkway all the way down to I-195, then take that to Route 9....probably an hour or so. It takes me about 45-50 minutes to get to the Meadowlands Sports Complex from this area, so use that to judge.
