    I didn't even know there was a TRU over there, I was at a friends house and just ran into Target for cat litter and got lucky lol.
    I've only seen the wave 2 Cyberverse sets once and it was on release day at the TRU on Broward Blvd west of University, I regret not snagging both then.

    Went to the Mulberry WM to look for an extra Thundercracker for a friend. No luck, and nothing else beyond wave 1 of DOTM. OTOH, if you want Cliffjumper, Blurr, Skullgrin, or Dirge, you're in luck.

    It's just five minutes or so south of the Target.

    Any sightings of Cyberverse Blackout? I'm holding out for the Wal-Mart on Atlantic and 441 since they were just putting DOTM stuff out a few days ago.

    I'll probably do a little more scouting tomorrow. I'm only looking for Powerglide, Blackout, and DOTM Thundercracker now.

    You won't be scouting for long. Haven't seen TC, but the other guys are everywhere. :)

    Maybe in Central Florida, but come down south and it's all wave 1 with a random wave 2 if you are lucky.

    Just grabbed Thundercracker, Wheeljack, and Warpath from the Winter Haven WM. I had to ask the girl in the toy department to check in back for me. This is the second time she's been able to find stuff in the back for me. She is quickly becoming my new best friend.... LOL!!! :) 

    I cannot guarantee they have any more. But I believe they have 1 more of each. So jump on it quickly.

    Found a Warpath at the WM close to Dale Mabry and Water in Tampa. They had one left, they also had at least one Wheeljack, TC, Kup and Scourge.
    Also on the DOTM front, they had a good number of both Shockwave and Skyhammer. this was around 4:30 that i was there.

    The Wal-Mart on 441 between Wiles and Sample (Turtle Creek) has a bunch of Shockwaves and Skyhammers. They also looked to be putting up the newest wave of GI Joes; they had a Crocmaster and Crazylegs out.

    The TRU nearby had one DOTM Sideswipe and one Cyberverse Blackout, no Powerglides. I got the Blackout. Sorry Zannus.

    Grats on snagging a Blackout, that walmart is a bit out of my range since I live by the broward mall, so I probably wouldn't have driven up there for a Cyberverse figure, I might have for a Thundercracker.

    I was almost one of those.

    So glad BBTS never filled my Pre-order. And so glad for this sightings thread. Would never have found the two I needed so easily if not for some of these local guys. :D

    I managed to snag wheeljack and thundercracker back when TRU had that 10 minutes of restock so I didn't pay too much for those. I did go to ebay for warpath for 30 bucks shipped and I think he was worth it, though my wallet may shed a small tear if I ever spot him at retail.

    Thanks, picked up the last 2 5 packs and the RTS 4 pack with the code. Never seen any of them locally. Still hunting for a Warpath.

    Did you get the Stunticons or the Constructicons? If you got the Stunticons, LMK what you think of them. I am still debating that one.

    Dang! I need a Warpath and Wheeljack. I'd wish they would hit hear locally. I've been checking Walmarts. Anyone seen this wave at Targets?
