    OK I got a great haul today as part of the TRU buy 2 get one transformer free sale.

    I got Shockblast
    Dreadwing (mirage repaint WHich is odd since I've never seen mirage)
    and the prime megs TRU exclusive two-pack. They have the repaint ironhide and cliffjumper. Plus some of the repaint terrorcon. Didn't see any of the new deluxes and I think I got the last shockblast.
    There were more dreadwings and plenty of the Op megs pack.

    Energon Galvatron is available in Bridgeport/Clarksburg's Target. 2 only, might be sold out. Call 'em at (304)-842-7770 and have 'em hold one if you can drive and get it. I'd have bought one, but I'm broke as hell.

    I managed to pick up an alternators hound at the rt 60 huntington walmart but from the looks that was the only thing they had. They consistently have most of the newer deluxes. Other than that nothing new.

    Clarksburg/Bridgeport goodies:

    Bridgeport Target - nothing really great, but they did have the most plentiful supply of the Nemesis Prime exclusives I've seen at any Target. Around $18 each, I believe.

    Clarksburg Wal-Mart - pretty disappointing. Entire endcap of the Ironhide/Jetfire combos, and a sole Mirage/Ironhide pack in the mix. Oddly enough, no sign at all of the combiner pallet. Not on the shelf, and not in the aisles. Newest Alt in stock was Meister, though heavy on Streaks. Fairmont Wal-Mart had 2 packs of Scorponok/Tidal Wave, and on the way into town, I was tempted to pick up the Bulkhead/Landmine 2 pack I saw at the Summersville, WV wally world. Decided not to, as the redecos for each look better than the originals anyway.

    Bridgeport TRU - TF section was devoid of all reissues except for Ricochet and Hoist. All the remaining reissues (and there are ALOT) were moved to the clearance aisle. They're priced from $13 - $20 each, and they've got more reissues than any store I've seen. Did not have any of the Prime/Megs bonus packs of the full sized bots. Very low selection on the TF front.

    Oh, and Sears has several of the Energon deluxe exclusives (Demolishor/Cyclonus) for 40% off in the toy section.

    Ebay:
    The Huntington/Barboursville TRU was pretty depleted right before X-Mas, but they still had loads of reissues: A skywarp, a Dirge, a ton of Hoists and Grapples. A red Alert, and a few boxes of Tracks. They had a single Omega Supreme left (which my wife sneakily bought for me), and a few of the Prime/Megatron 2-packs.

    They also had a few of the basic energon TFs as well.

    Both the Barboursville and Huntington Wal-Mart's were even more depeleted. However, the Omega Sentinel seemed to be well-stocked. So was the Jetfire/Ironhide 2-pack. They seemed to be happily warming the shelves ;)

    Crap I was down there before Christmas and wanted a 2 Pack of Optimus and Megatron for a friend and asked and there were none left, or so they said. They either found a case or something. Crap... Might have to head down there and have a looksee.

    Crosslanes Wal-mart and just about everywhere devoid of any transformers. A LOT of the jetfire/Ironhide bonus packs at Wal-mart in Crosslanes.

    Bridgeport TRU - lots of bundled two packs of full sized Prime and Megs, and other than that, virtually nonexistent TF section. No basics or deluxes on the pegs. Had 6 Alts, though - newest one was Hound. I did pick up a Hoist and "Auotbot" Grapple on clearance at under $13 each, and Thundercracker for $20.

    Bridgeport Target - Nemesis Prime and Omega Supreme/Sentinel on clearance. Kicker/Highwire also in stock...what a crappy, crappy looking set. A well done Kicker as a basic would have been much better.

    Clarksburg/Bridgeport Wal-Mart - no TFs on the shelf except for 6 Alt Streaks, Universe crap, and a BUNCH of Prime and Megatrons. Also, endcap full of 2 pack mega/ultra figures.

    Ya I know I'm from Canada but my grandparents just got back from their trip in the US and they managed to pick up Alternator Battle Ravage and Shockblast from a Wal-Mart in Summersville WV for me. Hope this helps.

    Bridgeport TRU - no Cybertron, but nowhere for them to put it, for what thats worth.

    Still a good bit of G1 on clearance, and lots of Energon. Picked up G1 Prowl for $7.50 and G1 Tracks for $6.50. Doesn't get much better than cheap G1 goodness! Also had alts Shockblast, Battle Ravage, and Windcharger.

    Bridgeport Target -

    All Energon on clearance. ALL of it. Along with all Universe. Energon Prime/Megs down to $19.99 or so, all other Energon about the same (half price). Only exceptions were the Energon deluxes, which were down to around $6. Not sure if this is chain-wide, but if you need any Energon, might be a good time to look while the selection is still pretty good.

    Hope no one minds if I break in for a moment--all three of the Targets in my area have put Energon on clearance. Most likely it's a chain-wide thing.

    Bridgeport Target:

    Cybertron Starscreams on clearance for $22.48. TONS of them. Alternators Side Swipe and Windcharger on clearance for $9 and change. Star Wars items on clearance as well - individual figures (only about 6 of them to be had), and Target exclusive star cases on clearance too (had probably 40 packs of them).

    At least 2 Galvatrons are at the TRU in Vienna, along with a SWTF Darth Vader (I snagged the other three in the case).

    Oh hells yeah - had to dig DEEP to resurrect this thread!

    Home visiting the folks for the weekend, and have this to report:

    Bridgeport Target:

    Primus is down to $39.xx, which I haven't seen anywhere at that price point before. Titanium Jetfire and Thundercracker in stock (2 of each). Only bought one Jetfire (he kinda sucks!).
