    I've been looking for the deluxe CC Bumblebee ever since it came out and have yet to find it. Until recently my stores were completely devoid of deluxe figures, but now I'm starting to see current ones on the shelf. I even saw Arcee at a Target today.

    But I still have yet to find Bumblebee. Does anyone know which stores usually stock/get shipments when?

    Just get there at 3:00 AM. And bring an empty bottle. Trust me, you'll need it.


    Well, I think every store gets them at different times, just call or ask. Have you tried Kohl's?

    Just get the Target 2 pack. The "battle damage" isn't that bad.

    I typically go to a WM sometime past 9PM if I'm searching for something rare, as any cases that they're putting out are normally sitting there unopened, so you can look for fresh cases. Target...mornings, though you can always ask them to scan a figure and see if they have more in the storeroom. some Target employees will get one for you, others won't. Most TRUs only get trucks once a week during non-holiday times, and more frequently during that time. Ask their manager, and try to be there that day.

    The two times I got my CC BBs were when I wasn't looking for em. Once at a lunch break, I hit a TRU and they had just stocked the deluxes. Another time was in a Target in the late afternoon when one or two deluxes were left, one being a CC BB. Every time I hit the stores before work at the buttcrack of dawn, got nuttin.

    I would agree, but you're not going to find one of those this week. Target's got the two pack on sale and they're giving away a $5 gift card with them, so that BB two pack that's been warming shelves for the last two weeks is very MIA at the moment...

    I can think of ten reasons why someone would need a empty bottle at 3:00 AM.

    I think he meant you might need to go pee sometime waiting outside, in that case why not simply use your local public toilet?

    My Target stockroom friend tells me they stock shelves at 10am, 3pm and around closing. It may be easier to take residence in Target than show up 3 times daily.

    If possible I'd recommend picking a store and hitting it right at opening as often as possible. Eventually you'll run into what you're looking for.

    Some WM have went to stocking 24 hours a day. I have noticed that both of my WM do not have any toy pallets on the floor at 10pm. Both are high volume stores, so they finally must of started stocking during the day and evening as well.

    I follow the trucks on the interstate and when they stop in a rest area, I break in and check the manifest. Once I find what I'm looking for, I go to the store ahead of them, hide in the air duct...and wait...

    when i read here that cc bb was available in kohl's, went there immediately and was able to get it. thing i've noticed is eventhough target restocked on the newer deluxes, like payload, longarm etc., still no sign of concept bb. as for walmart, all they had were swindle and brawl.

    I agree with Eva. You will need that bottle.

    Ask the stores when they will be expecting more Transformers, and show up late that day.

    CC Bumblebee

    If you really want a CC Bumblebee I can probably get you one. I visited Wal-Mart today, and they had like 5 of them. Plus this isn't the first time my Wal-Mart has had CC Bumblebees. They've kept a pretty good stock of them this past month.

    Here is my visit to Wal-Mart today:

    Send me a PM if you still need one and we can work something out. ;)

    You can always check the Junkion.... someone usually has one... or post a wanted. But expect to pay cost (with tax) plus shipping!
