    The Walmart in Maysville, Kentucky last night had several boxes of the ROTF Power-bots and Robot Replicas waiting to be put out. Hopefully they don't ring up as not for sale like the rest of the stuff seems to be doing so far. Sorry, I don't have a picture, so if someone else wants to get the news credit...

    Finally found a Universe Ratchet tonight. Meijers in Hamburg had a couple of them as well as Hot Shot, but I got him there a while back.

    Hello All!

    Found Activators Cliffjumper and Dirge at the Springhurst Meijer's yesterday. They were $8.44 each, or the same price as WM and Target. May be worth investigating the rest of the Meijer's in the Louisville area if you do not have these.

    Nice. I would have just waited until the coast was clear and broke into that like a welfare kid on Christmas. May 30th is too long to wait for the plastic crack! Also, the Maysville Walmart did have a couple of Ratchets, and they had a few of the 25th Anniversary Optimus Primes on sale for $40.00 if anyone's interested(I forgot to say that yesterday, was still beaming from looking at the ROTF Robot Replicas and whatnot).

    Sigh, I wish I stilled live in Lexington.
    Down in Hazard we pretty much just have all the Robot Heroes and Power Bots. The book tie ins are available as well. I'd love to get the Soundwave.

    Hello, Kentucky Transformers Fans!

    Been a long while since I've posted here- Anime isn't my cup of tea when it comes to transforming robot toys so I've been sitting out for awhile, waiting for ROF toys...


    Today was my lucky day!


    Innocently strolling through Walgreens on Frankfort Ave this afternoon I discovered ROF scouts Rollbar, Knockout, Dirtboss and Ransack. Sweet!
    Looking across the sightings thread I saw Walgreens Scout findings were widespread, as well as Meijers' sightings- so I went on a hunt this evening of Meijers and Walgreens.

    I ultimately found a scout Deadend at another Walgreens but that was it for those stores.

    Meijers was much better. Found nada out at Springhurst but on Hourstbourne I hit paydirt! From off of the pallets I opened up some cases and scored Deluxe Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Breakaway, Sideways and Rampage! The other case was Leader Class so Optimus Prime and Megatron are mine! Bwahahaha sweet street date breaking goodness! Special thanks to Meijers for not locking out ROF toys from scanning normally.

    This takes off a lot of pressure from the hunt on the 30th. good luck, guys and gals!

    Welcome back and thanks for the heads up. I went to the Walgreens at the corner of Hurstborne and Westport and found all 4 scouts. Plenty left.

    Husband and I found an Ironhide and a couple of scouts yesterday at the Meijer in Springhurst. Honestly, we were quite disappointed with the toys. We left them and probably will be "very" selective with them. I, personally, don't think the toys will sell that well compared to the first line.

    On a side note, we were at St Mathews mall and went into Hot Topic. They had some really cool prints of the old Generation 1 and something else. Of course the shirts are 19.00 a piece, but at least you get your money out of it. So if your interested, check it out. They said they would be getting more this week.

    The stuff I see at Walgreens and Rite-Aid are really expensive compared to Wally World or Target.



    The Clarksville Target still has one Onslaught at the marked down price as of this afternoon.

    Finally! Just this morning Springhurst Meijer was unpacking wave 1 ROTF. I picked up leader prime and a few deluxes. They still dont have the preview Soundwave figure, which was a bummer.

    After I picked up my haul I left them with:
    Leader Prime x2
    Leader Megatron x3

    Voyager Ironhide x2
    Voyager Prime x2
    Voyager Starscream x2
    Voyager Demolisher x2

    Deluxes:
    Sideswipe x3
    Sideways x4
    Bummblebee (preview) x3
    Rampage x1
    Breakaway x2

    All wave 1 legends

    and all wave 1 robot heros

    Oh, and they've had the scouts out for a while, but I dont think anyone really cares.

    Awesome heads- up! Thanks!

    I nerdishly darted out at lunch and snagged a Voyager Starscream, Optimus Prime and Demolisher, leaving at least 1 each. (from Shepherdsville Road @ GE Appliance to Springhurst Meijers and back in 75 minutes, oops long lunch) Anyone headed to Meijers Springhurst should know they are now (Voyagers) out on a front end cap, a few ailses down. That end cap is also chock full of ROF robot replicas and fast action battlers, if you are into those...

    Awesome! Glad to share the new figure goodness. They didnt have the Robot Replicas out when I was there, so I'm headed back in the morning. Thanks!

    On a side note, Deluxe Sideswipe is one of the coolest figures I've picked up in a long, long time. Such a slick design.
