    Yeah but there was no one to help me convince my wife that in addition to a bunch of Netflix Deluxe figures I also needed a Voyager that she knows we already own for some guy in Phoenix, so I lost that battle. It's okay, I think you're going to be okay, plus you can buy it from Amazon for less than it would cost you to pay me Retail + Shipping (especially if you have Prime).

    Chandler Fashion Target has Tiny Turbo Changers wave 4! All that's left is a few Gnaws and a Kup, but considering i never see these around here ever, it was a pleasant surprise to find em in the area.

    Maricopa Walmart has 1 R.E.D. Cheetor and 2 Arcee. The promo pics show the effects for Arcee being translucent purple, but they're solid grey.

    Hey, I definitely raid Phoenix for products when Tucson's having a dry spell, so all's fair in TF and war! :)

    Weekly hunt in Prescott/Prescott Valley:

    Apparently Target got Kingdom Wave 2 Deluxes in sometime in the last week, all that was left was an Arcee.

    Walmart on Hwy 69 restocked Wave 2 Headmasters & RED Cheetor & Arcee.

    Walmart in P.V. still has plenty of Dinobots & Infernos, one Netflix Deep Cover, & one each of Weirdwolf & Highbrow.

    I totally missed initial stock, I wonder if we'll see a Netflix Wave 3 restock in the area?

    There were 2 Huffers at Oracle & Tangerine Wal-Mart last night, as well as a Ractonite and 6 Infernos. Get in there!

    I found some other neat stuff while exploring last night that I suspect I got the last of forever. Did you know Fry's stocks some toys?

    Yeah, I see TF's there, but it really depends upon what Fry's you go. Some of them are smaller stores and have nothing, while others will get brand new figures before other stores do. Usually the best ones are the large stores like the Marketplaces and Signature stores.

    There are 2 Netflix Soundwave packs at La Cholla Wal-Mart in Tucson as well as a variety of other cool stuff, including 1 Inferno and 1 Dinobot, 2 Netflix Optimus Prime, a bunch of RED figures, SS-60 Scrapper, a few of each Headmaster, Kingdom Core Starscream and Megatron, various Cyberverse deluxe and smaller figures incl. some BAFs, SS-86 Blurr (everyone has him...)

    walm_1.jpg walm_2.jpg walm_3.jpg walm_4.jpg walm_5.jpg

    That Soundwave is selling online for easily double what they charge at Wally World. I could have grabbed both and made a hefty profit, but I'm not into that and I'm hoping they will be found by someone who just wants a nice Soundwave figure for themself or their kid... My daughter loved hers!

    Fry's was mostly a waste of time, but at the Fry's Marketplace on Tangerine and Thornydale, I found my boy Hoist shelf-warming in the clearance area in the back of the store. Three units! I didn't get any pics but they had a couple Micro Master packs, too, for 11 bucks. Ones I already had, rats.

    Get in there and give him a good home!

    At a different Fry's I found this lanky, old series Starscream with a request to snitch to them if you find it for resale elsewhere. He's 10 bucks if you want this mutant thing!

    Wait, where did I take this pic? I forget. It helps to check out some of the stores you wouldn't think have toys... Scourge is a sneaky bastard!

    They had a SS-86 Hot Rod too. They were really expensive though.

    Some of the local Walgreens in Tucson still have Bluestreak, which is one of their Earthrise exclusives. This store had 2 of him left, I think it was on Lambert and La Canada?

    I found this very cool, older series Jetfire at the Oracle Walgreens and I grabbed him, along with a Die Cast Optimus Prime truck that my son has already tried his best to dismember and eat.

    Report from the Tempe/Mesa area.

    Found 1 Ultra Magnus at the W Southern Ave and S Longmore Target. Outside of that, there have been a lot of Wave 2 Core figures which might indicate that the deluxes were there and they have already been picked up.

    Here's to hoping for a restock of Wave 2 in April.

    At the Walmart on 19th ave & Bell rd.

    Found tons of wave 2 retro headmasters, a few SS86 HOTRODS, A few wave 2 Core starscream and core megatrons. Nothing else worth mentioning.

    Still cant find Magnus, Trex Megatron, Inferno, Airrazor, or Huffer. I give up on finding any of these anywhere near me. People keep swiping them all.

    I went to Chandler Fashion Target this morning and as one other user noted, there is 1 Trex Megatron left but the Ultra Magnus was already gone.

    Nada at Baseline and McClintock Target. It’s getting pretty old with these ridiculous inventory inequities between stores/locales. How do empty pegs make anyone any money?

    There's one Cyclonus, one Blackarachnia, one Paleotrex, two Optimus Primals, and a hell of a lot of Grimlocks on the shelves at Tempe Marketplace Target right now. Also lots of the Super 7 Bumblebee figure.
