    SS "Bee Movie" Bee sighted at Target Sugarcreek.

    Got a 'coming soon' listing on Hasbro Toy Shop, so keep an eye peeled.

    Just found SS VW BB at Tri-County Target. They only had one. They still have a Ratchet and Shadow Raider on the pegs, though. They also have the BB cassette pack and the BB Soundwave exclusives. And a couple Novastars.

    Kroger has 30% off all Transformers this week. Good chance to get SS Ironhide for around $26! Saw one at the Beavercreek store this morning.

    Sugarcreek Target has one VW SS Bee on the pegs. His left hand has fallen off, but you can hear it rattling inside the package. They don't have any Shadow Raiders or Green Ratchets though...

    Xenia Walmart has a fresh case of the new SS wave. DOTM Ratchet and Shadow Raider look better in person than they did in pics.

    Didn't check Fields Ertel Walmart since it's a bit more out of the way, but Meijer and Target there have new Bee stuff (no SS VW) and Target has the cassette pack but no Soundwave.

    Cin-Day WM has G1 HR and a ton of Cyberverse stuff. No SS at all.

    He is an absolute pain in the butt to transform. Car to robot is a breeze, reverse? Ugh. You have to have it perfect, and if you force anything the shell pops loose and you have to start all over again. Plus, that backpack is a NIGHTMARE. Fortunately, EmGo does provide a transformation video and it does help quite a bit. I can't believe you have to push the backpack that far to make everything lock in place just right. I'm worried about longevity...

    I'm worried with the clear plastic I'll pop the thing to pieces.

    Last night I did manage to see the Devastator set at the Massillon Walmart. Looked like there were at least 5 on the shelf if anyone is still looking for it.

    Worse even is that he's actually pinned together, this time. Hasbro finally listened but chose the WORST figure to do it with.

    This is one time a Bumblebee figure could use pop apart pieces since his transformation requires so much force (in either direction) to be remotely usable in terms of the gimmick. I'd feel better if there was a little give, such as popping parts off, rather than forcing the plastic far beyond its tolerances to do it right. (And you can tell you're pushing past the tolerance levels with the noise and the amount of force required to fold up the backpack properly.)

    I miss the days when they said that excessive force is not necessary on the instructions, there's no mention on this one. They're basically saying "Have at it. Because when it breaks, we know you'll want to replace it. We're counting on it, actually, so go ahead!"

    SS VW 'Bee, Greenie Ratchet, and Orange Julius Lockdown Raider at Wal-Mart Sugarcreek

    BB Movie stand in the toy section at Kroger Marketplace in Sugarcreek, which oddly has several wave 2 POTP prime masters (Alchemist Prime and Alpha Trion) in it along with Bee movie stuff.

    Wilmington Walmart has about 7 each of PotP Grimlock and Inferno, as well as multiples of all 4 Terrorcons, none of which makes any more or less sense than the other things that they've stocked over the years.

    Hit up a couple Walgreens on the way to work, no Wreck-Gar. I did pick up the Walgreens exclusive General Veers Black Series figure so that’s nice. Additionally, if anyone missed out on the Cloudraker/Wingspan set, Walgreens.com has it on clearance.

    Give it a few days. Most Walgreens get 1 big truck a week I heard, and itll most likely be on that.
