Went to TOY VAULT in RI Mall, they have a ton of Transformers stuff here's a list of most noteable

Amoung many G1 toys they had...

1 Grimlock
2 Slag
1 Ultra Magnus
1 Bruticus complete (didn't note if it included all gun accessories)

They also had a decent collection of BWs

1 MSIB Rinox
1 IB Rampage

They had a ton of energon stuff including a loose Megatron, Galvatron, OP and a MSIB Ironhide

Finally, they had plenty of busts including Shockwave, Devastator, and I beleive some of the Insecitcons.

Oh and they also had a Laser Optimus Prime import

Bump to keep this on the first 3 pages >.>

Toy Vault remains the best place for 2nd Hand stuff.

Newbury Comics (Warwick and PVD Place Mall) has Revoltechs.

Target in Warwick has movie Target exclusives.... if anyone cares.

Walmart in center of new england has Cliffjumper if anyone's looking for him. Also I believe I saw the orange and white repaint of Blackout and the Nightwatch Optimus Prime, not exactly positive about those two but I believe I did see them. I never knew Newberry Comics sold MP figures, is this a rare thing or does this happen often Blaster?

First and foremost, when it comes to what they sell, Newbury comics is just that "comics". It's like a comic/collectibles/music store all rolled into one.

Newbury comics usually sells the big expensive domestic & imported transformers like Masterpiece, Encore, Re-Issues, etc, domestic $20 & ^up figures along with Japaneses trading figures and gashapons.

They really don't sell much mainstream Hasbro u.s.a. stuff that often, as they usually have only wave 1 or 2 or whatever new line Hasbro is pushing (armada, energon, cybertron, classics, movie). They do not carry later waves, but they do carry other transformers items such as board games (monopoly, risk, etc) and other transformers-related items made by other companies such as Basic Fun KeyChains.

In short, they usually have and carry more Takara-related Transformers merchandise than they do Hasbro, and anything Hasbro-wise is usually the big expensive figures.

I only go to newbury's to buy Japanese trading & gashapon figures, microman figures, gundam, godzilla, stikfas, and anything else that may interest me.

But be warned, Newbury's can be pricey depending on what the said item is that you are buying. Gold coin and McQuarrie Star Wars figures will cost a way lot more than the regular Star Wars figures they sell, so it's more like buying from a comic shop or a "god damn scalper." But sometimes they have really good deals on stuff. So it's really hit or miss.
