    Winchester Walmart has loads and loads of Deluxes, including the new ones: Airazor, Wheeljack, Hoist, Rhino, Terrorsaur...

    Winchester TRU has the new $20 Universe toys - I picked up the griffon, what's-his-name. Also the sabres.

    No sign of TidalWave anywhere as of yet.

    Got tired of waiting for TidalWave to show up in Winchester so I did some calling and the Sterling, VA TRU had some. I had to really press the guy to verify they had it though.

    ME: "Hi, I'm looking for a $30 Transformers Armada figure called TidalWave."

    HIM: "Let's see... Nope - we just have Thundercracker and Red Alert..."

    ME: "Those are $20 figures. I'm talking about the slightly larger $30 figures - you probably have some Galvatrons for example"

    HIM: "Nooo... Let's seeeee... $30 figures we have Galvatron, Jetfire aaand TidalWave."

    ME: :rolleyes "Riiight. TidalWave. Can you hold one of those for me?"

    Anyway, they had another still on the shelf when I picked it up on Saturday.

    7/21/03 Noon

    Woodbridge WalMart had several of each the new minicons, a couple PowerLinx Primes, and about two each of Wheeljack, Hoist, Airrazor, Rhinox, and Terrorsaur.


    Off topic: Do any of you Northern VA people have a membership to Sam's Club? When it comes time to get those Universe RID Prime & Magnus exclusives, I don't want to have to resort to eBay scalpers.... if so, PM me?

    Found Overload and Skywarp case at Walmart in Winchester. Convinced the lady working the toy department to locate and open the case for me.

    Anyone know if Unicron comes in a "Super" assortment, like Optimus?

    Just picked up Unicron from the Short Pump Target in Richmond.
    Last one there. Their whole toy aisle was reset, though, so maybe he'll be out at all Targets now, instead of just brand new ones.
    Or out very soon. Whenever your local Target resets.....

    Trypticon, I read you're post about Unicron at the Fairfax and Springfeild Targets so I went to both about a two and a half hour drive for me one way but did not see it at either of these stores nor did I see shelf tags for it where was it in the stores? You are talking about the Fairlakes Target and the one in Springfeild Mall right? Please respond I must get a UNICRON.

    Yeah, I did the same thing. No Unicrons anywhere. All of the store managers are still saying that it will be another 2 weeks until they are out. I had employees look for them by DPCI #s and I had them go in the back to look in the transition areas. Nothing.

    Well Xybot it looks as though it's just you and me. I'm goin' searching tomarrow so if I come across them I'm damn sure going to hide one for you. Then as soon as I get home I'll e-mail you or post the position here or at the Allspark sense we frequent both'and let you know where I hid it(don't worry I am extremely good at hiding things). Anyway good luck I hope we find them soon:)

    NoVA Unicron

    Guys, don't feel too badly. Despite Mouth04's insistence that all Targets in the area should have Unicrons, I haven't seen evidence of a single one. Last weekend, I ran around to six different Targets, and asked them to look up the DPCI.. nada. Someone thought there were Unicrons at the FL Target, and put one on hold for me. I got there ten minutes later, and they claimed they had no Unicrons, so they gave me some $3 off anything coupons to shut me up. Hopefully, my $60 walmart.com Unicron should arrive today, leaving me to search for Overload and Skywarp, which I also haven't seen yet.

    On a side note, are any of you interested in buying a few of the world's smallest TF? I ordered a single box of 12, and I'm trying to figure out what I would do with the many, many duplicates if I upgraded my order to a $200 master case of 48 figures. PM me if you're interested.

    and what I dont get is that the employess there I talked to said that they couldnt release it for another two weeks or what not.....see thats why we need TF fans INSIDE the store to actually check the goods out.....

    Well no luck with Unicron today:(  the people at Target were less helpful today more so than all the other days they wouldn't even look up the backroom locations , they said we don't do that anymore.?????WTH????? Anyway I've got inventory at my work tomarrow night ,so that leaves me all morning to check.Multicron (and Xybot and Trypticon if you still need them)there are mass amounts of Overload and Skywarp at the Wal-Mart in Warrenton VA. If you need directions just let me know.
