    I was at Walmart at the Center of New England plaza in Coventry yesterday and I saw several Real Gear Robots, Power Up VT-6 and at least one Zoom Out 25x. They also had a couple of Voyager Blackouts, Starscreams and Autobot Ratchets. They may also have one or two classics left, I saw a Classics Optimus Prime bought it so I'm not sure if they have any left. Also I may have seen a Wreckage not quite sure though.

    Target on Route 2 in Warwick had a 6" Titanium Rodiumus Prime. $15.99

    I also saw a "classics" Optimus Prime at TRU in Warwick.

    RI Mall TRU / Walmart...

    ... both have large amounts of boxes out for what looks to be huge restock tonight!

    Update: TRU had the new real gears. Nothing else new and no deluxes at either store.

    Walmart on Post Rd in Warwick has Leader Brawls, and nothing else worth talking about.

    For being Hasbro's home state we get nothing of restock >.<

    Try ToysRus or Wal-Mart in Rhode Island and in North Attleboro (Massachusettes) for Classics.

    ToysRus has Voyagers and the Deluxe Optimus Prime vs Megatron 2-Pack.

    Wal-Mart should have Voyagers, minicons, deluxes, Op/Megs 2-packs, and 20th Primes.

    As for 08 BumbleBees...I cannot help you there. Not even I can find one. Your best bet though, is to try Kolhs or KB Toys.

    Walmart Warwick - Only one! of the Decept deluxe dark blue armored cars. Long empty I can see the pegs. Main display lots of the redeco Optimus blaster with flames from Energon days and some of the basic pop up kiddie level transformers.

    Yes out- TRU Warwick - dropped by late afternoon Sat. The end cap reminded me of end resulting hole of someone dropping a ball in the sand. The whole display was almost empty. Did finally see final battle jazz in a few numbers and 2 arcee.

    Saw 2 little kids with their mom going back and forth in front of me looking at the toys. I stepped back as they were going to run over me those little guys. The smallest one finally went to grab the Ultimate Bumblebee ( box 2/3 his size ) and asked Can I get Bumblebee? ( I tried to hide my smile as I knew he didn't know the concept of money. ) Mom said no. Can I get any Bumblebee? She said when they come out with the smaller ones. And I have to say this kid is smart for like a 6-7 year old: Mom - Can we ask the store people to check in back?


    Since the movie, been pretty much just burning gas. And a recent bad transaction with one of the big online toy stores - its just sucked the interest out.

    Good luck on the hunt.

    That's Hasbro HQ you silly goose. I've been there before, the place kicks all sorts of ass!

    Back on the topic at hand, nothing new at TRU Warwick.

    And to me, they looked like crap. One's "fire" effects were not even (some spots were more yellow, and some spots were more orange) and the other one had poor silver paint apps on his face. But that's just my opinion.

    I should also note, that each FALLEN figure was sporting a different nameplate and box. One said "The FALLEN", the other said "War-Within FALLEN".

    Y'know, I've decided to stop posting in these "Sightings" threads because every time I see a new post, I go to that store and find it picked bare. It wastes my money (on gas) and leaves me in disappointment.

    Sometimes I feel these sightings threads are more like "A Scalper's Go-To Guide For Finding Stuff In Your Local Area" than a help to collectors, kids, and parents looking for Transformers. I would not be the one to complain, but if the movie has shown us anything, it's how much of a royal pain in the ass it can be to find ANY good Transformers toys in stores.

    I can think of at least 6 different locations I've seen in the last 5 years in RI that are like that.
