    And what I don't understand is how the Titans Return and the RID toylines seem to be running along smoothly yet distribution of the movie figures sucks ass. It's not only disappointing but it's rather ridiculous. You'd figure since Hasbro has a bunch of nerds who are more than willing to give them their money for plastic figures that transform into cars and jets, Hasbro would stay on top of distribution.

    Well, wherever you are. I'm glad the TR section at my place is quite healthy now. But it's not perfect since some of the Targets and TRUs here are missing the newer stuff like BlitzOct and SixSkyOver. Combiner Force is somewhat ok since we got the newer wave though now we should be getting BludTwinTher's wave by now. But Wave 1 is just stocked here. Like no escape.

    The good thing is they're online. The bad thing is the shipping price for them. It's fucking ridiculous.

    Found Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime at Toys R Us in Mission Viejo. First sighting I think so I'm putting it in a news thread. Surprised it's here and not at Target like we thought XD

    Pleasant Hill TRU had nothing new on the TLK front other than the exclusive deluxe Optimus 2-pack seen everywhere. No MPs that I saw (even at the high-dollar counter in electronics), MPM or MP10. Zero new TR either.

    PH Target had 2x leader TLK Optimus and 1 leader Megatron.

    Just searched "transformer" and "transformers" separately at the toyrus web site and discovered major discrepancies. Some things popped up and some things didn't with the first search and vice versa with the second. WTF?

    You can't really trust any of the big retailer websites. A lot of them still show Combiner Wars toys in stock.

    Just picked up MPM-3 Bumblebee at Toys R Us in Van Nuys. Sure enough they had them behind the counter at the service desk. They still have three more as of 1pm. The manager said they also have MP10 Primes in the back.

    1 MPM Bee at the TRU on La Cienega. There's no tag for it so it's just stuffed in a random spot.

    "Selected clearance items 20% off". But there is a "mix and match buy one get one 40% off" which applies to all Transformers and some other brands.

    So my friend went to a Walmart and found a damaged Blitzwing box with the figure. However, the head is missing and stuff. If you're really wanting a Blitzwing, you can go get him. I'm waiting until I find a perfect MISB one. Also, my friend found two of the Wave 2 Deluxes there but I'm not sure if there's more. He got me Steelbane and Sqweeks even though I asked for Steelbane only. Nice guy, really.

    Picked up TR Deluxe wave 5 at TRU Vallejo - there is 1 Windblade left. The crazy thing is that I've never seen wave 3 and 4 there and I go almost every day. No MPs there either

    Is this first sighting in California? Sweet. I can't wait for Twin Twist and Misfire.
