    Hello I was at Walgreens and went through the toy isle and was shocked to see the Prime Vehicon sitting on the peg it is priced at $14.49 and on the same peg as the DOTM figures there. I thought this was news because I have not seen anyone find these figures at this store yet?

    Good luck hunting ;)

    He wasn't saying the first sighting in stores, he was saying the first sighting in this store. which I believe it is. No one has reported finding one at a walgreens yet.

    one more place to look. Thanks!

    Yeah, most of the drug stores will get a case to put out.

    Good luck indeed. Anyone on the HTF (Halo toy forums) will tell you the average toy stock for a Walgreen's store varies from store to store, so you might find vehicons at one store and not one Transformer at another.

    Let's just say the Halo Toy forum wasn't too happy about the rarity of a certain Walgreen's exclusive Spartan.

    All I've seen at Walgreen's so far is Prime Bumblebee.

    It's funny though that everyone used to rip on Walgreen's for the higher $14.99 price on a Deluxe figure,and now Target is at that same price.I wonder if Walgreen's will raise their price now.

    I found a cyberverse commander ultra magnus at walgreens last night. Add him to the list of hard to find figures showing up there.

    Thank you for this info, now I know to at least check to see if my local Walgreens actually stocks anything transformers. Maybe I'll get lucky and snag a PRID Vehicon or Airachnid. :D

    Hasn't Magnus only been out a week or so? I don't think he constitutes "Hard to find" yet.

    As for Walgreens I spoke to a manager who seemed to be on the ball. Walgreens doesn't get a case like other retailers, thier warehouses literally crack open the case and sent them a qauntity based on thier sales. So even though there is a knockout on the pegs of my Walgreens, doesn't mean I missed a Vehicon.

    Don't buy him at a drug store! All the toys there are on drugs!
    They think it's funny, that's why they increase the price!

    True, we may not know for awhile if he'll be hard to find. Just a guess since he's only 1 per case.

    15? It used to be 18. Guess Walgreens is starting to become customer friendly with their prices.
