    Nothing new spotted, but here are some discount store sightings in case anybody is still looking for cheap DotM or Generations:

    Ross in Oviedo
    across from the Oviedo Mall has 1 DotM Leader Class Bumblebee reduced to $22.99 instead of their usual $24.99.

    TJ Maxx in the same plaza has a Leader Class Sentinel Prime for $25, the Generations deluxe Optimus/Tank Megatron 2-packs marked down to $10 and several DotM deluxes marked at $5.

    They told me that at the St Pete TRU when I did the store to store. That they were not getting any they know of. And they had never even put up a UPC on the shelf.

    To who it might help here are some sightings in Miami more specifically around the Hialeah/Doral area. The TRU at 1645 NORTHWEST 107TH AV MIAMI FL 33172 P: (305)593-1517 near the Doral area is closed for remodeling. Meanwhile in Hialeah there's a TRU in 500 WEST 49TH STREET HIALEAH FL 33012 P: (305)557-6704
    there I found new/old kreo sets, kreon micro-changers (the codes which peaugh posted are useful), all of the FOC figures and some past generations such as wheeljack,skyshadow,warpath,junkheap and kup. NO SIGHT OF Masterpiece TC! Also as far as TMNT classics they had only 3 figures all together leo,raphael and donny NO mikey which is the one I'm missing.

    Furthermore, at Target near Hialeah 1750 W 37th St Hialeah, FL, 33012 (305) 507-0014 they had all FOC figures, some prime voyagers such as 1 bulkhead, 2 starscreams, 2 megatrons. NO classic TMNT they only sell new TMNT.<br>

    Universal had the U. Studios exclusive deluxe Bee and Prime and Voyager Prime and Megs. No sign of Evac. This was in the store that Terminator dumps you in when it exits.

    I picked up Evac a few months ago on ebay. Great figure. I am sure they get them in and someone grabs them all.

    I had a truly unexpected sighting today. The Super Target on Hillsboro Blvd in Deerfield Beach had a Voyager Dreadwing. I say 'had' because I snapped that one up as soon as I saw it.

    My reaction upon seeing the Prime Voyagers was 'I wonder how many Optimus Primes I'll see this time'. I got to reading the names on the top-diagonal flap "Bulkhead, Megatron, Dreadwing," then came the double-take. Checking again, it wasn't a hallucination, at which point the snapping up occurred. There was an Optimus Prime behind him. Just the one, though.

    im so tired of toys r us, its always the same, i know for a facet some employees dont put the figures in display and when their shift is over they buy them for themselves. About a month ago i got lucky, i asked about a certain set of 4 green figures ;)  because they were not on display, the guy told me he had them on the back and was going to buy them, but that he was going to give them to me anyways since he knew they were hard to get, and he would buy the ones from the next shipment.
    This was an isolated incident in the sense that almost all toys r us have one employee that hides figures from the public so they can buy them later. I have been to 4 toys r us in the central florida area, near orlando, and i have not been able to find TC :( 
    I have no problem with them buying figures they like, what i do believe is that companies need to do a better job with the distribution and manufacturing numbers of some figures.
    Ninja turtles classics are very hard to find
    masterpiece transformers are always hard to find
    i have not seen the new waves of marvel legends in any stores yet
    it took me about 3 months to find a walmart exclusive avengers hulk
    etc

    Dale Mabry closed several years ago. Really sucks as I used to walk there often from where I live.
