    Seibertron has reported 2 sightings one in Nevada and one in Indiana. Allspark member Nightblade has reported of a sighting in California.

    Nevada: http://seibertron.com/transformers/news/tfa-found-at-walmart-update-pics/13188/
    Indiana: http://seibertron.com/transformers/news/animated-figures-found-in-indiana-also/13195/
    California: http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=46915

    Look for it hitting shelves in your area soon! A report surfaced before the pictures in the Nevada sightings of someone picking up the last Grimlock from that same WalMart, but it is unconfirmed as of now. Take it with a grain of salt. The confirmed waves out currently are Deluxe 1+2, Voyager 1 and Optimus/Megatron 2-pack. Good luck!

    EDIT:A User from Seibertron,ponycorn, has posted picture proof Lugnut+Grimlock. Consider Wave 3 confirmed!

    Cool. I'll be going to Target this Sunday, maybe even earlier. Hopefully they have some Animated TF's there when I go. Lockdown will probably be my first purchase for the line.

    I bought Starscream, Prowl, Ratchet, Blackarachnia, Lockdown yesterday at Walmart. I can also confirm that Voyager Grimlock and Lugnut are among the toys just released in California Walmarts, as my friend got a Grimlock and another one for me.

    Does the presence of Animated mean that a store isn't getting anymore movie figures, or are the two lines independent of each other? I'm only asking because premium deluxes have yet to trickle into my area.

    I hope animated gets to good old NY soon. I have a theory for these sightings of Grimlock & Lugnut though, Hasbro's trying to apoligize to the fans for extending the movie line by moving up some Wave 3 figures and they'll soon start appearing everywhere along with the rest of the US(I really hope this is true)

    I assume it does mean the stores will not be getting any more movie besides the exclusives they have coming down the pipe, but stores could still have them in back or in the warehouse so you may see a few more shipments show up.

    Hey! That was me (Real One) from Seibertron boards who found the TFA at Walmart in Nevada.

    I actually went looking for GI Joes in the morning with no luck. But found the TFA fully stocked and couldn't resist.

    I bought Bumblebee and Bulkhead. I wanted to get Starcream and a few others but didn't want to spend alot of money.

    I went to another Walmart and bought Grimlock. It was the only Grimlock I saw between both stores. :rock
