    No luck, sadly. Wallyworld on Montgomery Xroad has G1 Hot Rods, but I'm drawing the line at thirty bucks for an ordinary figure between a scout and a deluxe.XD

    Seeing a ton of G1 Hot Rod, Starscream, and Devastators, around town. Still no in-person sightings of POTP Leader Optimals.

    Just visited the Target over on Victory in Savannah. No Siege figures yet. One can always hope. I did, however, see a number of Bumblebee and Cyberverse toys.

    Most notable:
    • Target Exclusive Leader Soundwave
    • Target Exclusive Bumblebee 1-step with cassettes.
    • 1st wave of the Bumblebee movie micro-changer blind bags.

    I may not have the office names down, but I'm sure you can figure those out.

    Predaking get... not that it helps anyone. I'm severely jumping the gun on Siege and BotBots, aren't I.

    There have been a number of sightings already for both. Once that starts happening we usually start seeing things locally within a month.

    Hopefully they'll show up in time for Christmas.

    Are alt Blast Off/Repugnus/PCP expected to show up in store at all?

    If past history holds true I would keep an eye on Ross/Marshalls/TJMaxx. They've gotten some of the online exclusives in the past.

    Target at Edgewood Retail in East Atlanta has a few of the Bee Movie Leader Class Soundwaves and a few of the cassette packs too.

    Walmart on Dogwood in Conyers has a few reissue Hot Rods, no Starscreams or Devastators though.

    I passed on Devestator because I figured someone wanted him more than me but I hope it restocks just to give me the option.

    Toy Swap this weekend in Lilburn, perfect for me. I will be bringing a large portion of my collection to sell all at 15-20% below Ebay prices with deals to be made. Chug, Titans, AEC, Animated, Black Series, Legends, Pops, Amiibo, etc. Pretty much all MISB.

    *lightbulb* that reminds me, as I understand it there's going to be an element of randomness to collecting BotBots, since there are going to be ones that come in blind box-type parts of the packages. Any other collectors in the Savannah area mind doing swap meets every now and then?

    ... yes, I know, not a sighting. But it's vaguely relevant.

    If my son and I get into them I'm sure we'd love a good swap meet.

    Awesome. To be fair, I may not understand how the blind parts for the packages work.

    Picked up some Siege wave 1 at Target in Woodstock late yesterday evening. All they had were the smaller bots: Battlemasters (Firedrive, Lionizer, Blowpipe), and 2 of 3 Micromaster 2-packs (Roadhandler/Swindler & Topshot/Flak). I snagged one of each, they still had more than one of most of them.

    I'm still not seeing any of the Siege stuff showing up in Target inventory via Brickseek. How did you find them? Just by chance?

    Yup. Just happened upon them. Thought I'd see what they had, since I'm never in that area.
    Happy to post pics of UPCs this evening if anyone wants them.
