    Picked up Robot Replicas Frenzy on Monday night at Walmart in Lindon, so they are out with the second wave...

    Also snagged a Tit Rodimus Prime and Galvatron from the Fort union Target today, they had quite a few Titaniums left on the shelf.

    The G1 Jazz is now in almost all South Valley Target stores.

    As of last night, the Target at the District had two 6" Titanium WW Starscreams and one of the RiD firetruck Primes.

    If anyone is into the Star Wars Legos, the Walmart at 114th in Sandy had a few sets of the new version of the Sith Infilitrator. I think that's supposed to be a Walmart exclusive because I haven't seen it anywhere else.

    Congrats on the Uni head, wish I had that version of him, oh well.

    If anybody wanted an Ultimate BB they have 4 at the American Fork Target. Seeing as how I got mine and I know Starkenator has his, that probably isn't anything that anybody else really cares about...doesn't anybody in Utah check into the fandom or what? the shelves are bare and speak to the desire people have yet less than a handful on the Utah thread. Bummer.

    Still looking for my Concept BB and now add a G1 Titanium Ultra Magnus to the list.

    not true... they got 8 08's. I was there looking when they were unloading them off the pallets at midnight that night. Just never seen any there since that night.

    In the American Fork Walmart? when was this? everybody I've talked to their says that they haven't even gotten them in stock ever...

    If they did-did you buy them all? I know that they would sell fast, but I go past the Walmart and Target there everyday on my way to and from work, and stop almost every day. Twice.

    Either way, welcome to the Utah thread. Tell us where in Utah you shop, I am in northern utah county, Starkaz is in Riverton, and Starkenator is in Davis county. Glad to have another Transfan in the area.

    The American Fork Walmart has tons of Fast Action Battlers on the pegs. There is pretty good selection: Megatron, Prime, Blackout, Barricade, Frenzy, Bumblebee.

    Didn't see Jazz, Ratchet, Ironhide or Starscream but what they had they had tons of...including an endcap full. So check your local Wally if you want some FAB toys. The Megatron is pretty good...his feet actually let him stand up without any problems compared to voyager and leader class versions of himself.

    Yep that walmart got 8 bb's. I didnt buy all of them but I did buy 2 and a friend I was with bought 2. We were looking for voyagers back then and was going on a walmart run that night and We saw atleast 6 bb's in each of the springville, orem, lindon and af walmarts. I believe that was either the weekend after the movie came out, or 2 weekends after it came out. I havent seen any since. Orem walmart gets lots of voyagers and so does springville, but nothing special. I've just about given up but still cant resist the urge to stop by the toy isle if im at walmart. I've checked the target in orem a few times and last time i was there like 2 weeks ago they had about 20 or 30 jazz repaints and a dozen or so starscream repaints. But they usually dont have crap.

    Nice to talk to some locals!

    Oh that freakin sucks! I have never even seen him, and you tell me that there were that many all at once! somebody shoot me.

    Thanks for the info. at least now I don't have to keep trying to convince myself that Utah County got the shaft on the Concept BB front. I just missed it. good thing they say that Hasbro is doing another complete run of all the deluxes sometime soon, so maybe I can get lucky.

    Keep us tipped if you see something!

    Well Ive occasionally seen the wave that concept bb came in at the orem walmart and ive even seen like 3 or 5 bb's there on the pegs. But of course they dont last long. From that run my friend and I did, we noticed that if 1 walmart in the county gets something in stock from hasbro, all the walmarts in the county do. So id keep checking af AND lindon, and of course the earlier you get there, the better. I really dont think its worth driving down here to orem and springville because they are all getting the same crap. I dont go up there anymore unless im there for another reason.

    I'm looking for voyager prime or robo vision prime and REALLY want to get him. If you keep your eyes open for me, I'll do the same for you. If you want to be in contact with me on the fly private message me and give me your number and we can text if we see anything.

    Thanks!

    The Southtowne mall Target store has the Optimus Prime, Jazz and Frenzy Robot Replicas in stock, not too many but they will likely be gone saturday morning, so if you want em, go get em.

    Voyager Prime on HTS

    Welcome to the board. I actually just ordered Voyager Prime on Hasbrotoyshop.com the other day and he still appears to be in stock.
    http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/ProductsByBrand.htm?ID=20280&BR=496&pn=Products/Catalog
    I also got the 08' Cyber Slammer bumblebee and the Legends Blackout (the only legends figure I still did not have). If you spend over $25 you can get free shipping with the TransformBK coupon code (can only use once though) or get 10% off with CATWEB10. Good luck.
    Otispq, congrats on the 08' BB! Persistence pays off!

    Thanks for the tip! I just put a bid on one on ebay that ends today and I dont really expect to win it but if I do, I got a great deal and if I dont, I'm heading over to hasbros site. I just hope they dont put me on back order like walmart did when I tried to get Voyager Prime a while back...(bastards)

    Nothing new to report. Wish that TRU would restock those Soundwaves that they did a few months ago, I only saw one, and I got it for my brother, but supposedly they are going to come in. That and Titanium Ultra Magnus...

    Woot! 500 posts

    Ya, I think tru only restocks on Saturdays. I have a class that morning so I stop by and Ill keep an eye out for you. I'm still calling around about Leader Prime. I know target it keeping their leader brawls pretty well stocked but Im curious since leader brawl and megatron and prime all have the same dcpi then they all ship together. I know the target in orem has been out for a couple days and I'm waiting for them to restock. Hopefully all the leaders ship together.

    23 post! WOOT! :)

    Stopped by American Fork Walmart at 10pm and the lady said they were getting Transformers in, but she didn't have access to any detailed info, and the guy in charge who would was on break, so I gotta check back in the morning. They did have a restock on the Star Wars Transformer line, if your interested. Couple of Generel Grievous but the rest were all repaints.

    So I didn't get to the Wally's this morning after all, but I was able to make the rounds in the afternoon. Nothing new anywhere except Target has some Titanium sixers out. Scourge and WW Starscream. Looks like they all have restocked the crap Optimus $60 computer things and the carabiners. Funny that I wants to play me some Transformer Monopoly, but I've never even seen that in any store...
