    Barren wasteland at TRU in sugar land Wednesday afternoon. Just 3-4 RID figures in the TF section. No TR at all. Lots of empty pegs. Hopefully, that means dlx wave 3 when they restock. Had one stray GotG Nova in the NECA section if anyone still needs it.

    TRU in Baytown is rarely worth it, but they did have 1 alpha trion and 6 astrotrains if anyone still needs these. WG one block over had two chrome domes.

    No lie. I'm loving this whole wave. Even Polaris is good for a glorified repainted. For me, the best is a toss-up between sunfire and shatterstar: two characters I'm actually not that fond of.

    I saw PMOP at Walmart on 75 & Spring Creek. On sale for $40 I think.

    Spring Cypress/249 Walmart has TR Legends Bumblebee and Kickback (no Gnaws so I left empty handed), 2 each of Voyager wave 3 Megatron and Optimus Prime, and 1 TR Twinferno.

    Walmart off Beltway 8/Westview has 1 each of TR Legends Bumblebee and Kickback and TR Leader Optimus Prime and Soundwave as well as RID Warrior Stormshot.

    I grabbed him, thanks for the heads up
    I decided to leave Gnaw there, as I've already spent waaaaaay too much on TR.
    This brings my total up to $100 dollars.
    The last one I'm going to get, I've decided, is seaspray. The wife likes him, and it's my oldest surviving Tranformers toy from G1.
    Looks like no Trypticon for me (unless there's an insane deal this christmas)

    Today I saw more wave 3 deluxes around Plano and north Richardson. Saw three full sets of wave 3 legends in the Walmart just north of George Bush on Coit. Haven't seen any wave 4 of anything my self yet.

    Walmart at NW Hwy/Saturn had a lot of the Triggerhappy wave (is that wave 3?) deluxes, and a lot of Gnaws/KB/BB. Are there any places in the east side of DFW that have older titan masters? I found Ptero and Fangry at the aforementioned Walmart, found a Sawback somewhere else, really don't feel like doing the hunt through Rowlett and ROckwall like I used to.

    Hey SA fans! I just got back from Walmart on Bandera & found one Leader PMOP Prime & 2 Voyager G2 Primes (along with some Alpha Trions & Astrotrains). While at the Target on SE Military Dr., I found & bought the only Leader Sixshot they had. Even if there's not a whole lot out there, at least it's a sign that the later TR waves are trickling in to San Antonio.

    I've still yet to find Deluxe TopSpin, Kup, & Perceptor, but I'll be on the lookout at all the familiar locales.

    Good Hunting All! :thumbs2:

    Here in my neck of Austin...

    TRU on Research is slowly becoming bare. Still not a sign of anything new, but the pegs are certainly thinning out. Just a handful of deluxes, voyagers, and leaders left (I think 6, 2 and about 4 respectively, didn't count properly), though legends are still running pretty deep. All wave freaking 1 though... And I almost finally, finally bought MP Bee as they're down to just one but the box was pretty beat up and looked like it might have been resealed so I didn't want to try my luck. Ah well.

    The Target there still looks sad... BUT! Had wave 3 deluxes and titanmasters on the bare pegs. Grabbed one Triggerhappy, leaving at least one more, a few Getaways, and 4 Hot Rods.

    WalMart up in the Lakeline area was much sadder. Huge empty space where they moved Transformers to. What was there was at least interesting as well - couple of leader Soundwaves, two voyager Primes, and a voyager Megatron.

    Still no sign of Kickback or Gnaw. :/

    My local SA Las Palmas HEB had a couple each of Gnaws, Kickbacks, & Bumblebees, as well as the old wave with LaserBeak. The Las Palmas Family Dollar had the Legion G1 Optimus, Starscream & Bumblebee, if anyone is interested. I'm quite happy with the lone Sixshot I found at Target; too bad there weren't any new wave Deluxes, but I'll go back & check soon.

    Happy Hunting!
