    Forgot to mention... Macy's toy section at Hillsdale mall... no Transformers. most stuff seem from Disney store.
    Gamestop had non-transformable figures, one TF Select Deep Dive. and a few TF kingdom wave 2 deluxe. I called before going and the staff said they have all kind of TFs, leader, voyager, deluxe class.. but I guess what he meant the leader and voyager classes are the non-transformable fig/statue of a Grimlock and Optimus and a bumblebee that costs $49.99 !!! OMG.

    College Grove Walmart has nothing of note.

    College Grove Target has a Dracodon and SIX Thrusts. Ross nearby has nothing.

    Mission Valley Target has 3 Dracodons, 2 Thrusts, and a… weird Worlds Collide set. By that, I mean the instructions are in full view, and Fangry and Nemesis Promal are wearing their beast mode heads. No idea if they’re missing anything, buy at your own discretion.

    Sports Arena Target has a Bee/Barricade pack, a Core Prime and Megatron, and a Wheeljack (assume the rest of the Deluxes in the wave got taken). Ross nearby has nothing.

    Clairemont Walmart has nothing of note.

    Othello Target has a Core Prime, all 3 Buzzworthy 2-packs, an Origin Bee, 2 Wingfingers, and 3 Thrusts.

    Balboa Target has 2 Barricade packs, 2 Dropkick packs, a Stinger pack, a Thrust, and a Grindor.

    Walnut Creek Target had 4x SS Thrust, I took the only Wreck-Gar.

    I also almost dared to be stupid by buying my 7yr. old godson this monster for his birthday.

    Several Arks, a Bumblebee/Barricade set, and a few of the new Cyberverse deluxes(?) at the S. La Cienega Target. Skullcruncher, Cheetor, Soundwave, and Ramjet.

    Also a MOTU Faker, and a NECA Starlight.

    I made the trip out to meet a friend at Frank & Son Collectibles with a stop over at ToyArena in Puente Hills yesterday. Sooo much on the shelves. Pricing varied booth to booth from fair/slightly/too way over retail. Nice place to visit for whatever you happen to collect.
