Good news for all Transformers Prime fans - the next assortment of Deluxe class toys has just begun to appear at retail. A sighting in Texas from 2005 Boards member Bumblebee3 brings word that the third wave of Transformers Prime deluxes, which includes Knock Out, Hot Shot and Vehicon, has been sighted at a Target store in Houston, Texas. Just in time for Botcon in Texas next week!

Happy hunting all!

Hell yeah!

Texas? I hope that means he'll be in the rest of the South (Mainly Florida) soon
FanimusMaximus
Grab your wallets, the hunt has begun.

Why does everything good happen in Texas? Wasn't Ratchet and Arcee first found in Texas?

Us northerners probably have to wait a while, but I'll try to make it.

Can't wait for Knockout.

Also, OP should find me a Vehicon.

Calling around just to be sure, never know when they mind surprise you.

Not sure about you guys, but I hate when the service desk at Target asks which item I'm looking for when they have a guy in the toy department, and then asks for details, just to transfer me to the toy department guy and explain it over again.

Sweet! I'm have this week off. I was gonna go to Botcon but since that trip was cancelled, I'll use the week to hunt for wave 3!
lildevilchick
Wooo! Hopefully I'll be able to find the Vehicon fig by the end of May. ^o^

Nice find man. Guess I'm taking a trip to Target tonight after all.

Can you post his UPC? This way we can check our local stores to find out when they're getting them in.

Rule of thumb unfortunetly. Anyone know if there is a new DCPI for this wave?
urmandj
Any fellow collector that can help me out, getting Knock Out and the Vehicon at cost plus shipping?
I live in Mexico.. thanks!

And so it begins....

Release the hounds! The hunt is on!

I am literally going to buy ALL THE VEHICONS that I find.

Like, all of them.
AutoBobby
Great to see wave 3 of the Deluxes out...now if we could just get the new Voyagers also.

I suppose it would be pointless to propose a truce among transfans to limit ourselves to only buying ONE vehicon until it seems like most people have one? lol
TFXProtector
This sounds about right. I just bought one off of eBay on Friday, from a California seller. 2-3 of them had multiple cases of wave 3 for sale as individual figures. If they received multiple cases, and BBTS received multiples, it was only a matter of time before they hit retail.

Of course not. People are going to be ridiculously selfish on this one. It's times like these when stipulations and rules need to be enacted at the stores.

It's the barcode/number right below it. It's pretty much the item's ID as far as the retail world is concerned.

Edit - The Resource Section says its this for the Vehicon: "653569743163"
Robogeek28
I had a feeling these guys were gonna start hitting soon after I paid for my BBTS preorder yesterday, ah well.

Yep, pointless.

I really hope that Wal-Mart gets these also. The ones that I shop at never got passed wave 1 of DOTM, and have only had like four TF Prime figures on the shelf forever.
Jetbolt
Would have to figure they would start to pop up once the coupons started to expire.

Now the race begins to get the one Vehicon figure I want.
moreprimeland
Just wonder if stores that have tons of Bee will stock Knock Out??? Can only hope he'll be out on the pegs in my area soon.
Starscream and Soundwave need some company...Megs doesn't really care.

OK sure here it is the barcode # is 653569743064

Still waiting on someone to post those numbers so i can check my Target...(HINT! HINT!!)
feral prime
Oh nevermind..I guess I got impatient..Thanks!!!
daytimeninja
And so it begins!
Bumblebee765
Awesome! I still need to save up enough money to buy the figures I want from waves one and two though...

Here we go!

He's honest, dude, give him that. I myself plan to buy at least 3, and I suspect a lot more people are going to be doing the exact same thing.
NCStarscream
I'm more interested in wave 2 of the Voyagers, but this is still cool!

Wal-Mart will get them, sooner or later. However, due to space issues, it might only be one or two cases, so if you see the figures, don't hesitate, grab 'em.

The UPC will only work at K-Mart, Wal-Mart and TRU. (Even then, TRU prefers the skn number)

For K-Mart, leave the UPC as is.
For Wal-Mart, use the following: 065356974306 (always add a 0 to the start, remove the last number.)
For TRU, use the UPC as is, or use the SKN: 363356

UPCs don't work at Target. They do, but they don't. You need the DPCI to find them, actually.

Yes you did, but you still didn't get what you want. The DPCI is: 087-06-0546

And remember, people, the UPCs, SKNs and DPCIs cover the size class, and don't specifically pinpoint the exact figure you're looking for. You'll need to have your store(s) run the number(s) and then speak to an associate/employee who will check the pegs and the back stockroom for the specific figure(s) you're looking for.

Sorry, that's just how it is.

My personal Wal-Mart has a policy of not to order until every figure is off the pegs. A few Nitro Bumblebees and Starscreams literally sat there until they were covered in dust and we never got wave 4... It took forever to get wave 3 as well due to Topspin. What appear to be the same Wheeljack and a few Bees have been there on my last few trips. Though nothing as bad as when one single Goldar stopped them from ordering any more toys from the MMPR 2010 line...

I usually have to rely on Target... Just picked up an Arcee and I'm very excited to get a Knockout. Its a shame his partner won't be out alongside him. Still not sure about the Vehicons though. I feel like I'd have to buy an army...
zannus
Good to see these showing up, I had the 3 set preordered at BBTS, but really dont want Hot Shot or Knock Out so I cancelled it in hopes I can just find a single Vehicon.
Kevin XI
Cool, I'll probly see them soon, then.
Not like those damn generations, which took a few months to get over here.
TrueNomadSkies
Not like this is a big deal/not trying to be a dick here, but UPCs should work everywhere (well, anywhere that has an electronic inventory system anyway), as that's literally the ID of whatever product is in the system, and its usually the same as the barcode, as that's just the UPC number in scan-friendly language. The trouble comes when you run across the odd product that has a barcode (but not a number below it), but I haven't seen that with Transformers, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Stores will often use their own product numbers that're linked to the said UPC (you can often have multiple UPCs direct to a single product number which is how you have different products from a single wave or line advertised under a single "generations" tag or whatever (TRU does this which is why Bumblebee & Arcee show up the same on your receipt), but anyone at Target or whatever who claims otherwise (aka, people at Target who say they can't look into something if you give them a UPC) either don't know what they're doing, don't have an RF gun or computer in the store, or otherwise have a horribly configured system/permission settings because that's what you scan or key in to buy the said product or even look up anything on it, and that's what's unique to each product.

That's why if you look at the number below the barcode, you'll see that variants from the same wave/line will still have their own numbers, at least stuff of this nature that's not from a dollar store, etc. There's a little more to it than this, but eh. Keeping it simple never hurts

For what it's worth, for all the times you guys have gotten the shaft from distributors, I'm sure not all of us hate when we see something hit your area first.
Brainchild
Score one for H-town then.
tom servo
Unfortunately I won't be able to go to my Wal-Mart until week after next when I get paid, but when I do go.. Vehicon and Megatron will be the first to buy on my list.
