    Roseville North has 2 Sixshots, a buttload of the shelf warmers (Astrotrain, Alpha Trion, Blaster, etc.) and a Perceptor. Mostly picked clean of TLK as well.

    One CW G2 Bruticus box set and one CW Computron box set at an endcap in the Target off Jefferson in Culver City. (??!!!?) $99.99 each. They also have a pile of Broadsides on clearance for $20 each.

    Saturday 3pm 7/8 Walmart on Kelly Johnson Pkwy in Santa Clarita. Finally some Voyagers that are not Grimlock. Plenty of Hounds. several Megatrons (one less care of me), and a single Optimus Prime. Walmart on the Old Road (right next to Toys R Us) had bupkis.

    I totally agree. Hopefully they will end up at a discount retailer by the end of the year.

    If anyone is looking for TR Octane, I saw at least 3-4 of them at Target Westfield Topanga. And plenty of Kup, Topspin, Krok and Perceptor.

    Ebay:
    TRU in Stockton, CA

    3x Cybertron (Electronics counter)
    5x(?) Chaos on Velocitron (Electronics counter)
    2x Titans Return Optimus
    2x Titans Return Megatron

    Not sure how up to date that TRU is, but that is probably the first time I seen those there.

    We definitely would have picked up a couple of those Chaos sets if the BOGO sale was still going on.

    Shelves at my Target have become almost devoid of generations figures. Only 2 Perceptors, 1 Broadside and some assorted titan masters. Wondering if they were pulled to make room for wave 5?

    From what I can tell, a lot of movie figures are mysteriously gone, too. Shelves were full of deluxes and Grimlocks for weeks, but now there're only 6 Berserkers, 4 Slashes, 4 Grimlocks and 2 Primes (which appeared out of nowhere, for the record). Either this store's been hit by scalpers or old stuff is being pulled to make room for new stuff

    Target at Riverside and Broadway in Sac has all of the Wave 3 and 4 figures, except for Getaway. Along with a TR Megatron. I forgot to check the endcaps though.

    Target Mira Mesa has 2 TR Kups, Restock of Turbo Changers Megatron Berserker Grimlock and Bee, no TR Voyagers, Restock of Some TLK Voyager Primes and Grimlock, and a Lone VC Hound... Dunno if it was still there when I left. Some of the Marvel Legends Spider Man Homecoming wave and... Those 12 Inch Black Spider Men.

    Foster City/Bridgepointe today:
    TRU: 1 Cybertron. Nothing else new.
    Target: Lots of wave 4 TR deluxes. Legends- just the Brawn wave, no Seaspray/Cosmos.

    Also, if anyone in the Bay Area still needs the Chaos on Velocitron set, I got ahold of an extra... asking $180 MISB, local pick up (mainly trying to pay down my own set ;) ) Lmk if you're interested.

    I've seen a couple of Chaos on Velocitron sets at TRU's all over the LA area. They are out there.

    Checked out My D Pins today and they didnt have anything new and it looks like their TF section of the store got a lot smaller since last I was in there. They still have a few Unite Warrior sets and Takara Headmasters tho.

    What happened with Phat Collectibles,I heard they moved their location on Ball to somewhere else?
