    My man in NYC got Snarl and Reptilion for me today too ... he says that they are officially sold out now. At least until their next shipment.

    New toys = YAY!

    hv

    Hey, the ketcham grad, when did you graduate?? My fiancee graduated from there in 97, her sister in 95, and her brother in 00.

    Anywho, I did not realize anyone in the flea market had TFs, I stopped going to that thing like 2 years ago (but my parents still go for the pickles)

    oh yeah, the Family Discount in Rye Brook has the TF universe, and armada roleplay swords (both sets)

    hey ghost..the only transformers stuff you'll find inside is stuff i have decided i already didnt want. Since my stepfather runs a booth up there i got connections with all the toy vendors and I get first crack and pretty much price them for myself. next time you go..come visit me. I got the booth behind the pickleguy with all the nuts and fruit and stuff

    I believe you mean Paradron Medic. ;)  At least that's what was there 2 weeks ago.

    I'm on the other side of the river. Wal-Mart in Newburgh has NOTHING. Last I checked their TF stock was Wave 2 minicons:eyebrow

    KB at the newburgh mall has Scourge & Bludgeon. 12.99 is kinda expensive for repaints of toys I already have:ROCK

    TRU in middletown is swamped w/ CSIII reissues and it may be next july before they clear room for CSIV:cry 

    KB in middletown has nothing

    Target in Middletown had DW/SJ on a clearance endcap a weekend before my b-day(6/2) My mom went on june 1st and the clearance rack was gone:mad:  :cry 

    Media Play by TRU in middletown has 4 Windchargers (actually 3 now:cool:  ) and 3 or 4 bumblebee keychains.

    Wal-Mart in middletown had PL Prime (lots) and 1 or 2 of each of the new minicons. didn't buy any though. This was last week BTW

    I think that's every thing on my side of the river. This has been your hudson valley Autobot Geek reporting for Cable 6 news. Back to you:confused

    KB in Middletown HAD Scourge and Bludgeon a few weeks back, as well as Armada Rhinox. Most likely they're all gone now.

    WalMArt in Matamoras PA (right past Port Jervis on 84) has all 3 Universe figures, but they are stuck on the top shelf, likely waiting for the store to move the massive glut of Wave 1 Armada figures.

    Same store had the new minicons (also top shelf) and Powerlinx Prime.

    Will have to swing by Media Play for those keychains.

    Hey, have any of you guys ever signed up for the transformers meetup? It keeps being cancelled due to lack of interest.

    NYC Sightings

    Hey gang,

    I work across the street from Times Square's Toys R Us. I'll try and update as much as I can...

    Primarily if other people in the area join the thread!

    I used to do the same thing for Star Wars but I've moved on ;) 

    In particular I'm waiting for Wheeljack!

    I've only really bought the Supercon Prime, Thrust, Starscream, and the Sea Mini Con Team so far. Wheeljack will be a great addition.

    I wish that Air Military Team (black version) would come out, as well as Skywarp. Grrrrr...

    Hell, while I'm at it, give me that Micron Legend Shockwave!

    I was there yesterday and there was nothing too special although they have tons compared to any other NYC store I've been too.

    Thrust, Sideswipe, Sea Team, Red Alert & Skywarp re-issues.... I think that's all the newish stuff.

    The new window display gives me hope!

    Mod: Thanks for moving the thread!

    :gouki

    no first time I ever heard of it. and i know this side of the water is dead...why i always head to poughkeepsie to get stuff. Does the Target in Middletown have any of the new figures yet? they are usually pretty good in stocking up. Also has anyone in the area ever seen the Armada beasts or did i miss them?

    I hafta say, hainvg just moved to NYC, the City sucks for new TFs. we've got only two TRUs which are hopelessly stocked with Smokescreens, 1 KayBees that has practically nothing, and 2 K-Marts. That's it. The nearest Wal-Mart or Target seems to be in Queens or New Jersey. Sure, we've got plenty of comic and vintage toy stores, but they mark up Armada toys by at least 10 bucks! I am not not not paying $40 for Armada Megatron.

    Well... yes and no. Granted there aren't a ton of options but Times Square's TRU is pretty consistently getting in new stuff. I haven't had any trouble finding anything I've looked for that's actually been released.

    Other than the first Star Saber maybe... :rolleyes

    Toy Tokyo is a great place for Transformers stuff, particularly imports.

    Please check the thread right below this one, It has the New York Sightings. If it has been found it would be listed in there. Instead of starting new little threads.

    I think a NYC specific thread is valid because I don't have any interest in what's happening in the rest of the state, as I'm not driving etc.

    So listing about albany (which is hours away) or any other place does me little good.

    I've started NYC threads on other sites and gotten a good little community of NYC collectors going, trading info, etc. It's quite useful actually and much more relevant.

    Hope you can understand! Thanks.
