    For those of you who've found these, where are they located within the toy section? I've noticed that Walgreens has started overstocking bigger boxed toys on the top shelf above everything else. Is that where these are? Or did they make room for them mixed in with the rest of the toys? I'm still searching but can't find any. I'm mainly after Optimus for my son. I wouldn't mind an extra Optimus and a Jetfire for myself, but one Optimus for my son is my top priority.

    Found an Optimus Prime over here. This should keep the niece busy the next time my brother brings her around. In the meantime, it's not an entirely terrible addition to my ever growing Prime collection.

    So has anyone found Megatron or Starscream, or is it only the Autobots?

    I have only seen sightings of Bumblebee, Jetfire, Optimus Prime, and Prowl at Walgreens so far. I have not found them myself though.

    They were on the bottom shelf at the Walgreens I went to. All they had were Jetfires. He's kinda neat.

    At the Walgreens I've seen them at, they are stocked in the extended toy section (the sections where they usually have the toys that are 2 or 3 for $x.xx) they have either across from the main toy section or where they keep the holiday sections.

    I hit 4 Walgreens stores today and only 1 of the 4 stores didn't have any Cyber Battallion figures. I saw Bumblebee, Jetfire, Optimus Prime, and Prowl. I passed on the Bumblebee but got the other 3.

    So I finally got my 2 Optimus and 1 Jetfire that I was looking for. They may not be complex but they are fun to transform and fiddle with. Having this Optimus in hand really makes me wish we had a proper G1 Sunbow/Marvel style Voyager Optimus Prime in our CHUG/Generations collection. I'm really close to making this Cyber Batallion Optimus my main Optimus. I think if I gave him a little extra paint detail he'd look even better.

    No, I mean 2 of the same Optimus - the Voyager sized version that looks like the upscaled old Legends (Legion) figure. 1 for me and 1 for my son for Christmas.

    I have hit multiple Walgreens multiple times in the past couple of months. Jetfire and Prowl seem to be the most common/easy to find (most stores have at least 1 of each). Optimus and Bumblebee are a little harder to find but I have yet to see a Megatron.

    I don't know the case ratio but I am betting it is 2 each of Jetfire and Prowl and 1 each of Bumblebee and Optimus.

    Has it been confirmed that Megatron is available?
