    They gonna come. Arcee, Smokescreen, and Airwave just processed in my TFSource stack. No Alicons though and no voyagers yet. With that being said, I wont be hunting for a while unless I hear of any Doublecrosser sightings. Its been a while since I bought online, but I always keep a preorder just in case the BS happens.

    There has been plenty of doublecrosser sightings, I've seen at least 3 cases of them between Palm Coast and Port Orange Targets. and last I checked he is available on Targets site as well.

    Has anyone spotted a Siege Brunt at any of the discount places (dd's, Marshalls, Ross, TJMaxx, etc.) recently?

    Edit: Nevermind, grabbed one off eBay.

    As far as south Florida there were some initial sightings a few weeks ago. But I couldnt get out those days and they were gone by the time I made it out. Ill check the website. Thanks for the heads up.

    Reporting from North Naples.

    The Walmart on Juliet had a bit of the usual stuff but a huge restock of Cyberverse Deluxes, including Arcee. No Thunderhowl sadly.

    Target on Tarpon Bay had one Blitzwing (came home with me) and one Skipjack I left behind. There's no Generations Deluxes on the pegs so hopefully when they restock it has wave 2.

    Ross in the same plaza as Target had a pile of Sharkticon sets (for more than Target clearanced them for) couple Siege Starscreams and Springers for cheap. Only deluxe was Barricade (also came home with me).

    Start checking your local Walgreenses. Earthrise Bluestreak was found at one in Kentucky.

    And apparently, Scorponok is on clearance at Target. But none within a 50 mile radius of my house (near Orlando). In fact, I don't know if I ever saw one at retail. Really concerning, as he appears to be out of stock everywhere; but I think since Metroplex? the titan for each year has been plentiful through the Christmas season, to the point that it goes on a big sale during the shopping season. Wow, now I guess I am hoping to just find him for retail :(

    I am assuming he will show back up in stock online but that is all. All the targets in Central FL pretty much sold out of him very quickly. I'm not unhappy having paid near full retail price for him as I think he was worth it more so than the past titans. Also, the push to clearance is generally a store by store basis, often if the item is discontinued it will be clearanced right away but he obviously is not discontinued.

    I really hope that Scorponok becomes available again somewhere. It's crazy for a Titan figure to be completely sold out everywhere and we have not even reached the holiday shopping season. If someone locates a Scorponok, I would be so grateful if they would let me know about it.

    Thank you! Grabbed a Slitherfang then popped over to Ross for Magnus and Skytread. If I can break him down enough the Duocon is going to be reborn as a Gobot (when I get the time to paint something...).

    Quite a few double dealers at the sanjose and 295 Walmart in Jax. A few lasebeak/ravage at the sanjose Tuesday morning. I think the Christmas stuff shows up after Halloween?
