    It's been awhile since anyone has reported anything. Here's what I found this morning while doing my rounds in Madison.

    Target (west): Had Energon Hot Shot and Inferno out. Oddly enough there was no sign of Starscream or Rapid Run. Armada Supercons were totally gone. However, they had the latest wave of minicons.

    Walmart (west): This place sucks. No Energon or Alternators. They haven't put anything new out since I found E. Prime awhile back. The few Maxcons they have left are still at $15.89.

    TRU (west): Restocked on Energon basics and had a lot of Ironhide and Treadbolt. Tons of G1 reissues including Grapple and Smokescreen. There were also a bunch of TFU Tankors piled up on one of the risers. No sign of Alternators here either.

    On a positive note, my wife called and told me that Janesville Walmart has a ton of Energon basics and deluxes. They have the assortment with Starscream.. not Rapid Run. :mad: 

    I'm looking for the Alternators as well as TFU Depthcharge. If anyone finds them in Madison or the surrounding area, let me know.

    Madison's craptastic Walmart (west side) finally got in Energon Ironhide and Treadbolt. Of course the morons in the toy dept put them way up high on the risers. Too bad kids.. you're SOL if you wanna buy em.

    No Alternators at all in Madison today. East side, west side.. neither side had sh*t.

    West side store got in their Alternators. I had to ask someone to bring me one from the back. I have a feeling their going to wait for the post-Christmas reset before putting them out.

    Walmart west in Madison finally got in their Energon deluxes. They had three cases of Assortment v1.5 on the floor. I don't know where they're going to put them since they filled the Supercon pegs with TFU toys.

    They also had a case containing TFU Depthcharge on the pallet, but the toy guy said that they weren't supposed to put them out until next year (yeah, I know it sounds ******ed). I bought one anyway. :D 

    Target west had jack squat for new stuff. They had tons of Minicons, Unicron and Overload and I think 1 each of Inferno and Hotshot. Other than that the pegs were empty.

    I'm still looking for Rapid Run if anyone has seen him.

    If you're still looking for Alternators, add TRU to your list of places to check. I found them at a TRU down here in GA.

    I work at the west side Target in Appleton, occasionally in the toy department, and we're far behind in Transformers it seems. I just saw Energon Prime for the first time yesterday. Besides that we have Unicron, various minicons, and the newer TF Universe figures, i.e. Autobot Ratchet. I didn't even realize Alternators were out already. We're usually the first in the area to get a lot of merchandise since we're the most successful Target outside of Madison or Milwaukee, but for some reason we're lacking in Transformers at this time. Plus the person in charge of the toy department put the whole area out of order post-christmas so it's hard to find things. *sigh*

    The west side Target in Madison put out their new layout yesterday. They had a bunch of new stuff out there, including the latest Energon, Alternators, Star Wars figs and GI Joe stuff.

    Actionmaster, I have a feeling the toy person is a little behind at your store. Targets usually get their stock within a few days of each other so check back stock.

    The Big U² at Appleton East Wal-Mart, courtesy of Silverwynde. Was a REALLY slow day there--she wasn't even at her checkout station for two hours before she was told she could split. Must be a mess of people nursing hangovers or something... :lol 

    Now all we need to find are Ultra Magnus and Starscream...have seen nary a one anywhere in the area...

    Wow...it's funny that I chose today to make that last post. I went in on my day off to buy a new pair of headphones, and saw a big surprise in one of the toy aisles. Lots of Energon and one Smokescreen, which I bought immediately.

    Nope--Lyn's Wal-Mart got the Rapid Run assortment, and sold out fairly quickly on the deluxes (might explain why the display stuff disappeared on her...she's still steamed about that--what's the point of laying claim to it if some stockweed's gonna toss it out overnight 'cus no one with a functional brain said otherwise out loud? :banghead:  ). They've yet to restock on deluxes. They got the Tidal Wave/Scorponok assortment, too, so Ultra Magnus is gonna be the pain. I was lucky enough to pick up Treadbolt at the TRU/Geoffrey awhile back--the only one I've ever seen.

    Man...I thought the HTF ones are s'posed to come at the END of a line... :D

    I think I need to make a trip up there. No Scorps down here yet.

    Treadbolt is warming the shelves everywhere.. from Walmart to TRU.

    Target is the only place I've seen Magnus and Tidalwave. You might want to check there.

    Magnus?!?!?

    I still have yet to see him...bummers...

    I bet once a lot of stores do their yearly resets, we'll see some of our horded hard to find toys in abundance.

    Both TRU's in Madison had Scorpy today. Each store had about 4 of each (along with 2 Tidalwaves). TRU wants $29.99 for him... a little expensive IMO, but he kicks ass.

    TRU east also had 3 Alternators.

    I also found Rapid Run at TRU west. This is the first time I've seen him in Madison. All the stores around here have gotten Asst. 1.5 so far.

    TRU west also had the Armada Unicron in Energon box. They had about 10-12 of them on the shelf. I'm tempted to pick one of these up. They'll probably be rare.
