    Day round up:

    Sunnyvale Target had Rattraps and Tankors. Toys R Us still had the Scoop wave. Saw someone with a MP Prowl, but didn't care to look to see if they had more. Had a couple of MP stock boxes behind CS, so I'm assuming they had at least 2-3 sets, but don't quote me on that...

    First St. was bare.

    Redwood City Target has a bunch of Whirls and Rhinox.

    Bridgepointe TRU (as mentioned above) had a bunch of Sunstorms. I think... 6? 8? Wouldn't mind one, but not for the price. I think it's stupid that it has the older MP Seeker mold on the box, but uses the newer model.

    Bridgepointe Target has a bunch of Whirls. Had Rattrap and Tankor the other day, but I snagged em.

    Tanforan/Daly City/Colma had a whole bunch of nothing.

    Yeah, I went on a mini adventure today...

    Only Megatrons and Data Discs for all shops. Only Bridgepointe Target had a Bumblebee.

    BUT...

    If anyone needs a Tailgate or Skrapnel: I have a set from BBTS that I don't need since I found me locally (the day before I was able to cancel my BBTS order no less, but didn't have the chance to.)

    I also have a couple of Cosmos & Swerves. Saw a scalper honing in on the section when I picked up my set, so figured why not and bought the rest. Pretty sure it would've ended up at a popular second hand shop, if locals know what I'm talking about...

    Anyways...

    If anyone needs either sets, I'll let em go for the retail I picked em up at accordingly (I think the 11.99 +/- price point at that time. I'll double check.)
    Well, rounded up to the dollar because I don't have the want for coins, haha.

    Located in San Mateo/Work in Belmont for those in need. Hit me via PM. I gotta clear my inbox so if it gets backed up, message back by tomorrow.

    Hahaha, that's hilarious that you put the seat belt on em. Looks pretty cool, i'll probably pick one up for my son.

    Sidebar, Idk if this happened to anyone else's MP PROWL but my roof came off, so I had to use Kragle to put it back on. Somewhat annoying but it's okay now. Still an awesome MP to have so i'm not trippin.

    0_o what the roof came off, how? Geezus it's gonna be real ironic if the KO has better stability if this happens to more people.

    While I was transforming it for the first time, I barely put any pressure and it popped off. I also have the KO version (from Amazon) and that's held up pretty well, no problems.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see that Blossom Hill Target had 2 Roadbusters and 1 Skybite. Picked up one of the Roadbusters.

    So Roadbuster's case assortment is 2x Roadbuster 1x Skybite, and 1x Springer? Man, anyone south of OC seen Roadbuster yet? sound like he can be found at Targets now, but a lot of stores down here are still clogged with Rhinox and Whirl. sigh.

    Yeah, OC got messed over. We're not getting any of the new stuff. I haven't even seen the Rattrap wave stocked except once at Seal Beach.

    -edit- I also saw 2 tankor at Toys R Us in Fullerton.

    Was that AoE deluxe Wave 2 or 2.5? :)  W2.5 is what some TRUs and Target have been getting now which is pretty similar but it switches out High Octane BB and Slug, for 2 x Lockdown.

    I believe it was 2.5 then. There were 2 drift, and I bought one of the 2 lockdowns. I forget the name of the dinobot there were also 2 of.

    If it wasn't Slug from the first wave, it was probably Slash or Strafe from the second? I hope you were able to match the Walmart.com online price, as I think regularly they run $16.99 for those AoE Deluxe! That's better than any 20% discount off regular (if you can even get those).
