    I noticed on brickseek, most of the Houston Targets have gotten deluxes. Are they wave 3, or 4? (Crosses fingers)

    Most likely 3. It's been that way all over Texas. Target is the place to be.
     
  3. Hot Shot.

    Hot Shot. Giving up on the fiction.

    2x bumblebee & 1 lazerbeak TR legends at TRU in sugarland as of 3 pm Monday. No other TR.

    They also had the newest (I think) NECA Predator wave (elder, serpent, ultimate city hunter) for any interested.

    Hey fellow San Antonians, I sought, I found, yet, I returned home without any new addition to my Collection. Target on Blanco/Park North had about 2 each of TR Deluxe Hot Rod, TriggerHappy, Getaway, & Twinferno. Since I own most of them already I purchased nothing, so they may all still be there. The Hallmark at the Quarry had mini G1 plush figures on sale; buy one at $6.95 & get one half-off. They had Megatron, Prime, Soundwave & Bumblebee. Smiling Optimus is mask-less, so only the other 3 tempted me, but not enough to actually buy them. Oh well, more for other G1 fans.

    Happy Hunting!

    Did you ask if they had quakes wave mates in the back? I don't think they ship just one figure from a wave.

    TR dlx wave 3, two of each, at Target in Beaumont this morning. Lot of nothing anywhere else in town. Few Soundwaves at TRU & Walmart.

    ML Legends X-Men wave popping up at the 2 WG on Dowlen in Beaumont as of Tuesday afternoon for any looking: saw multiples of almost everyone except for Cyclops, which probably means 3-4 cases split between the four stores in town. No TR beyond wave 1 at any of them as of Monday night.

    Looks like I may be back in that area tomorrow afternoon. Still need this one if I go by and find one? LMK by tomorrow at 1.

    Yes i asked one of the employees and either he was lying or just didnt want to check, he said they dont recieve cases. They only recieve them in a box and they put out what they get. They keep nothing in backstock basically.

    Yea but u would have to mail it to me. Im live in San Antonio. Toysrus here dont have it yet. They just barely got in the marines 2 pack

    He was not lying. Walgreens splits full cases of toys between stores (just like discount stores like Ross). The only exception is that some stores might get full cases of exclusives (like Brainstorm). Normal waves are split between multiple stores, that is just how Walgreens distribution works.
