    walmart in providence still has the universes in stock, and 2 leader tfa bulkheads. they also randomly had the tfa optimus blaster ray gun thing. no sign of any more tfa stuff other than that tho.

    i am so frustrated at the lack of wave 3!!! :( 

    ...p.s. did this sight just translate "T F A" into Transformers Animated? weird!

    well, i just went to seekonk & warwick, here are my findings:

    Target, Seekonk:
    aisle reset, universe prowl & sunstreaker, wave 1 tfa, and 3 lugnuts & op voyager.
    Walmart, Seekonk: i dunno, there seems to be a reset pending? but as far as stock goes, nothing new at all, movie dlxs, and tfa BA & ratchet.
    Target, Warwick: aisle reset (with a fun giant column right in the middle of the tfs! yay!), they had 2 supreme commander OP! (i am not plunking down $50 for it, but if anyone else was looking him, he's there), the tfa blaster gun thing, wave 1 tfa dxl. they also had 2 ea tfa grimmy & lugnut on the end cap. they also had tons of the universe wave 1, all three.

    also, as a side note, apparently the leader class UM is available on the target website with a ship date of August 14th...

    the only one i saw was barricade in warwick. otherwise, it was repaint city.

    if you are looking for premiums, the only place i saw a lot of them recently was the providence walmart.

    well, randomly i was in smithfield earlier, so i checked the target at that 'smithfield crossing' shopping center. i snagged a soundwave for myself, but the only other wave 3 there was an oilslick. so i guess the wave 3 toys are in RI now? i will have to check some other targets later... but here's hoping!

    Target in Warwick has wave 3!! its looks like one case was put out, the only one i got was snarl, so there are 2 of each, except snarl as of noon today.

    Also! Target in Seekonk, if you ask, you might be able to get a worker there to grab some of wave 3 from the back, the man there said they had 1 jazz & 2 soundwaves in back.

    I am starting to think that the Seekonk Target has some shady dealing going on there. why weren't they out was my question to him, and he said they are weird about collectibles. they also had signage all over the stars wars stuff saying limit 2 per person. neither of the other targets i checked had such 'rules' regarding the star wars stuff. :scalper

    RI Mall has oil slicks, their snarls now belong to me and bf.

    When you activate Onslaughts sounds, even by holding down the button for each sound, does his siren only "whoop" once and immediately return to gunfire?

    Center of New England Walmart has the red and white movie ratchet voyager as well as Sunstreaker, we did have Prowl for a couple of days I bought one though. We also have at least one Leader Megs and Bulkhead along with Transform and Roll Out(Supreme Class) Optimus Prime. We have several BlackArachnias and many of the other movie toys. Also Walmart has several of the Marvel cross overs, there in the segment closer to the wall at the very begining right after the normal TFs section. The reason I use we in this post is I now work there as a cashier and I can give you guys weekly updates on the stock if you want. I don't know what's in the back, I don't go into the storage rooms though sorry.

    Is that the one in Smithfield?

    And as a side note I visited several Walmarts and Targets across the state today. No Voyager Primes and No Wave 3 anywhere. The target in Lincoln did have about 8 Lugnuts though, I feel like he is the first shelf-warmer of the series.

    No its the one in Coventry. I know we had Voyager Prime, i think Voyager Megatron, Voyager Red & White Ratchet, one voyager thundercracker that at last check was gone. I also think I saw leader megatron, not sure if it was premium or regular. As for deluxes we had a red pickup truck, a silverish repaint of swindle I believe as well. I forget the others, I paid more attention to the Animated. Oh and we have some of the robot heroes like the BA/Cheetor set. I'll post another update on Thursday when I go back to work, I have the next 3 days off. It will probably be around 10pm-11pm that I post it more toward the latter though sorry.

    Yeah, we had Tankor a few days ago until a person came to my register with him.... grrrrrrr....Aprently he went on Seibertron or some other board but I refered him to TFW though. Haven't seen Tankor there since =( though we do have Prowl and Sideswipe. We also have a Movie Thundercracker and Megatron today. I think we also have another Oilslick, one I pick upped. I've seen no Lugnut or Grimlock though in a while.
