    Thanks to Clone and to you, I got mine finally! He's so much better than Incinerator...and I like the clear eyes especially when you hold him in the light. I'm not particularly fond of the skyblue contrast on the paint, it feels like its gna rub off easily. I wish that the green was a rich green as it was on the pic, rather than the army green...all in all he's an awesome figure! Pick him up if you ever spot him...

    Went to TRU Express Natomas today and they had none of this stuff. No new Transformers that they didn't have earlier in the week. (They may have had a few Wave 2 Generations, but I didn't check carefully.)

    Thanks so much for posting in this thread! It's great to have an insider in the mix!

    Citrus TRU had an animated ironhide, so I can only assume I was beat to the punch by someone....

    I'm assuming you mean Citrus Heights TRU? If you're talking about that one, nah, nobody beat you to the punch. I was there at opening and saw the 1 Animated Ironhide (and a bajillion Animated Ratchets) but no Rodimus. That TRU is hit or miss all the time. They either have a few of the newest things on the day they're first sighted or they have absolutely nothing of interest until 2 months past when they were desired.

    For non TF stuff, I found a couple of neat little Ghost Busters mini mates that were TRU exclusives. There was Gooey Ray Stantz with Exploding Stay Puft (which is totally awesome because Stay Puft is made of pinkish reddish clear plastic) and there was Dr. Peter Venkman with Energized Terror Dog (which was also cool cuz it's see through grayish plastic). I hate Toys R Us with a passion because they never have anything new in stock or for cheap and I love it with a passion at the same time because they get some of the greatest exclusive items EVER.

    Oh...according to the chicks that work at the TRU Express at the outlets, whoever does the shipping from the warehouses to the TRU Express locations is sending huge amounts of things as though the TRU Express locations are the size of regular TRUs and the girls said they can't open the new shipments until the old stuff sells and they're like 3 weeks delayed on opening stuff in the back. I figure if enough people bug them about opening Transformers, they may eventually do it. Their Transformers shelf space is obscenely miniscule. 6 Deluxe size figures at a time and no bigger sized items? F THAT.

    Do any of you guys know if Kohl's or Marshall's carries the latest HFTD Transformers? Thought I heard others saying that.

    I know that Kohl's and Marshall's will carry Transformers toys every now and again, but I don't know if they carry the latest HTFD toys. Personally I don't shop at Kohl's for Transformers, because a deluxe figure at Kohl's is roughly about $15 which is more than I am willing to pay for a figure that I can get at Wal-Mart, Target, or Toys R Us for $12.

    In terms of sightings, last night I was at the Corona, CA Wal-Mart off of McKinley Street last night and they had Hailstorm, Elita-1, and Tuner Skids in stock, as well as legends Long Haul, Tracker Hound, Override, and Sandstorm in stock, too. So, to those TFW members in the Riverside County area, I wish you all the best of luck!
