    Like many people I have been scouting looking for generations and hunt for the deception figures. From the sighting threads in IL and MO and personal luck I have only found them both at TRU except for drift and thrust. Has anyone found any new figures at a store other than TRU or is this a case of retailer agreement and stores like target and walmart won't be getting their stock in until a later date?

    Fred Meyers has started getting some. They probably would have put more out but they JUST put out the NEST figures. But they put out scouts, activators and PCC.

    Most retailers like target and walmart are trying to clear out all of the ROTF stock or at least most before they start to carry them.

    Walmart and Target will be getting them in when they do their fall resets in August. That's a corporate thing, and not reserved to just Transformers.

    Ah. That makes more sense. I haven't worked for walmart in a number of years. Guess I forgot about that. :)

    Yeah, Toys R Us is a toy store. They get toys when the toys come out. Target and Walmart aren't. They'll get the toys when it's convenient for them.

    Kmart has had PCC and HFTD for about a week or two. I laughed when they actually managed to get something new before Walmart or Target.

    Between Kohl's and Toys R Us I have seen everything new. Best bet is to go to Kohl's though.

    Until now no one has ever thought to look at a mostly clothing retail store. Same thing happened with the first movie in 2007 a lot of people got the new concept camaro Bumblebee at Kohl's. I did.

    Every store is different.

    Some will be early and some will be the end of the month.

    I've only seen new stuff at TRU. Walmart still has nothing but Mudflaps.

    What was the lowest that Walmart sold the ROTF deluxes? Wasn't there a $9 sale for them?

    People keep saying they have seen PCC and such at Walmart and Target but I have not seen any pics.

    Also, it just so happens to be that TRU got these early, it's not because they are a toys store, WM and Target have had things out way before TRU as well, it's just the reset timing I suppose.

    There have been alot of times when WM broke street date or just had things early, and Target has had things early too and mis-priced them.

    I think it just is the drastic difference in this slump than others.
