    This thread will cover all of the different items currently for sale at RETAIL stores domestically in the USA.

    I will update this thread as "RESETS" happen and when discount stores will be getting in certain items.

    This seems like the best way to keep track with what is currently on shelves and make searching easier.

    Current shipped waves will be listed in parenthesis.

    Distribution in Florida doesn't always mean the same thing is out here in Washington.

    This is what the Sightings Threads are for.

    Yup, hell different regions of California get different stuff at different times. The sightings threads are useful for reporting what you see locally.

    To the last 2 posters. This is based on National Sightings. Not FL in particular.

    Also based on Floor plans for each respective retailer and the SKU's they are currently stocking.

    When a Wave is released it is assumed shipping to all over the USA.It is not isolated to a few states. I am only updating what is released currently at retail.

    It's still not consistent in every state, so I'm not sure how much this thread will help.

    If people want to know if something's out yet, they should pay attention to the News forum/front page for first-time sightings and/or their state's sightings thread to know if it's shown up in their area yet. Local stuff is what is relevant to people.

    Not to be rude.

    By why question my post? If you do not like it stick the sightings forum. Please do not come in here and question my post.

    Plain and simple. This List is based on what HASBRO IS CURRENTLY SHIPPING OUT TO RETAILERS. It has nothing to do with local distribution.

    If Wave 2 of Transformers Prime Voyagers is what Hasbro is shipping that is what they are shipping out currently.

    It has nothing to do with what local distro is. I am not trying to make a National Sightings thread.

    It is what are the latest Transformers Items Hasbro has released and which retailers are stocking what.

    I think people are engaging in a discussion, not questioning your right to post.

    Personally, I think this is the sentence in your OP that is triggering the comments:

    Posters are commenting and discussion (this being a discussion board and all) whether national releases are relevant to what is on any specific shelves.

    :rolleyes2 

    Your posting in a public forum. You have every right to post what you want (well, within board rules anyways), and people have every right to question its relevancy.

    What he said.

    How 2 has nothing to do with 1 is beyond me. Those elements are joined at the hip.

    I get what you're getting at, but it's overall pointless. "This is what's out." Well yeah, that's what I saw yesterday at Target. If Wave 4 of Prime is at stores right now, then understandably I can expect to see Wave 3 leftovers there, as well as maybe some from Waves 1 and 2.

    And you should really take Ross and TJMaxx/Marshalls off your list. They don't typically get distribution directly from Hasbro. They buy overstock. What you see at those stores is what wasn't selling at your area Targets and Walmarts. So that's not always going to be the same Nation-wide.

    I really respect UP's notion.

    A loose idea of what's out right now at a glance could be really useful. Knowing what waves are out there makes it easier to keep an eye out and let us know to watch the sightings thread.

    I live in the UK so I see quite a lot of Bumblebees :) 

    Incidentally those DOTM Mini-Con Dinobots are out in the UK now in selected Discount retailers - but it has me wondering why they are more common than the similar vehicles are (the ones that are mostly coloured silver). did they make more of the Dinosaurs than the Vehicles - or did the Vehicles just not get distributed as widely - (Internationally and US Domestically speaking).

    They did not really distribute the Dinobot Minicons widely in the USA. They are actually quite rare.

    Legion Class DOTM Cyberverse figures are pretty rare now in the States the last few months I noticed.
