    ^ AAGH! Why don't I live where you do!?

    It sounds like every Wal-mart has them except MINE! Well, tomorrow I'm going to try a different WM that's somewhat farther away and MAYBE they will have them.

    The fact that each Wal-mart seems to be getting two cases of them is somewhat comforting.

    EDIT: Well, my endeavor paid off! I am now the owner of Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime! Now to find Megatron and Bulkhead...

    I've seen 3 now. 2 at different TRU locations and 1 in a Target. And everytime I see him, I'm admittedly tempted even more than the time before lol. This of course means when I've 100% decided in favor of getting him, I'll never see another one ever again. :lol

    Hey, I know it's not Transformers related but if anyone sees a DC Universe Classics Green Lantern Series 1 Kyle Rayner figure out in the wild would any of you let me know and possibly pick it up for me? I don't mind paying a finders fee... I haven't been out toy hunting since the last Generations wave because I only collect Classics/Generations and DCU figures out of the new stuff, so I don't get around much when there's nothing new to look for in those lines. I got most of the DCU Green Lantern series 1 on sale at the Hsv TRU back in Jan. but someone picked up all the Kyle Rayner figures, it's the last BAF piece I need to complete Arkillo. :(

    Seems like the stores are using most of the shelve space for botshots instead of deluxe prime.

    I've noticed that too, but I guess it's because of the new Bot Shots commercial that just started running.

    Anyway, I found the Cyberverse Commanders at Florence Target today. They had two cases worth. Bought a Bulkhead, a Starscream and a Prime. The rest are still there. Go get em!

    I've also noticed the Bot Shots sections being rather large, especially at many of the Walmarts I frequent.

    I like some of those little guys, but the damn near $10 pricepoint kills my interest. Even Legends-sized figures are pushing $10 now too. Whatever happened to quality $5 figures that were fun and could provide that teensy fix when funds are low? Disappointing turn of events nowadays. The prices of these smaller figures shouldn't be a couple of bucks below a DELUXE.

    Bot shots aren't near $10 unless you're talking about the 3 packs. They're like $3.99 or so.

    And the Bot Shot launchers are 7.99 at Target. Bought the Prime and Megatron ones at the 150 Target in Hoover.

    Still waiting on stores in Prattville to get some deluxe prime in.

    Both Wal-mart are restocking the dotm deluxe pegwarmers,Target is only putting out the BB figures because that was all they had in the cases........yeh right.

    And K-mart has been the only store is carry CJ,Soundwave,and Wheeljack without putting any BB up.

    Sounds like I first saw singles lined up on the wrong pegs then. I know I saw singles on pegs marked $7.99 and was like WTF, ummm nooo lol. While I've seen an abundance of Bot Shots since then, I barely glanced at them due to already thinking they were too high. I'm sure the first ones I saw would've wrung up correctly, but they were shelved/marked incorrectly. $3.99 for the singles sounds fine. If I see another Starscream, I might grab him. They're neat little figures, but as I'm sure anyone can understand, initially thinking they were $8 a piece turned me off pretty fast.

    Found Arcee and Ratchet at 150 Target last night. Only had one of each. But at least we know we are getting them now.
