    It's been there for a couple weeks (I think). Store pickup is the only available option. Saw one today behind the counter reserved for someone at the TRUS in Newhall. Asked if any MPM3 Bumblebees had showed up. Nope. None at the TRUS in Van Nuys either.

    Anyone see any MPM3 Bumblebees anywhere else in the surrounding San Fernando Valley areas (Burbank, Porter Ranch, Topanga Canyon)?

    ^ if it was on there, then it was a hidden link. i have been searching Transformers Masterpiece on the site to try to get MPM3 Bee.

    The only Bee I have seen was at Torrance. I still haven't located it in LA or the Valley. Out of SFV, I have the best luck at Porter Ranch and Topanga Canyon. Burbank is a crapshoot, because everything seems to disappear the morning it is stocked.

    Prime, this time around, is in steady supply. Probably because it is 160. I got it for 100 a few years back due to shear luck on TRU website. Then it hit 120 on the restock. 160 with no discount isn't the best of deals for scalpers.

    On the website I'll just search "Transformers" and sort by high price first. The toys r us search engine bites. Sometimes just Googling the toy and adding "Toy R Us" after gets better results.

    Yeah, I grabbed MPM Bumblebee at Burbank a few days ago. At the time, they still had 3 after I left behind the counter.

    Were the ones behind the counter spoken for or is there some reason they're not putting them on the shelves?

    @SonofCybertron
    Does that Masterpiece Bumblebee have the UPC: 630509586103 ?
    Saw the empty box at the Burbank, said it contained 4 of something, just wasn't sure of what.

    They will usually keep hot or rare items behind the counter to deter theft and make them easier to find for people looking for them.

    I got a huge surprise this morning. The Walmart in Modesto has a Voyager Scorn in stock. I managed to snag Nitro.

    My local Targets and TRU have gotten SOME new stuff like the TLK leaders, AllSpark Tech, voice changing masks, etc. However, for some reason or another, none of them have stocked up on Wave 2 deluxes or Wave 3 voyagers. Not even Walmart has the wave 2 deluxes yet. It sucks.

    Yeah, that's the stuff I'm following. So I don't care about those other things. But yeah, I'm really disappointed and surprised that there's no Wave 2 deluxes in these Walmarts. I've been looking for Steelbane, Sqweeks, and Drift for a while now..

    I just wanna get Crosshairs,HotRod and Cogman and Im good,but distribution for these movies figures has been really bad. I remember the Movie1-3,I could usually find everything I wanted and be done before the movie left theaters.
