    Anyone spotted the new Legends Nemesis Prime & Spinister or Cliffjumper & Suppressor? Trying to get ahold of these, let me know if you've seen them, thanks! They're appearing at TRU, Target and Walmart and were found in New York just yesterday.

    If I see them, I'll let you know. I'm not out searching for those two, but it's not like I'm not looking at the Transformers anyway. What area do you live in?

    The strafe, legends bb and stinger three pack were at the Wally World (Walmart) in Plymouth off of 44 as of an hour ago. There were two of them. Picked up the only tankor that was on the pegs there too.

    2 x Tankor and 2 x Rattrap at Holyoke Target today.

    I bought one of the Tankors. It's a little disappointing.

    Thank you

    Leominster target- One Roadbuster and one Sky byte left. Grabbed a Roadbuster. Not sure what they had for movie toys as I don't follow that line.

    Leominster TRU- couple each of Prowl and Sunstorm.

    Thanks for checking— I regularly hunt anywhere from Worcester all along the pike to Dedham, and sometimes as far south as Braintree and Attleboro. I checked Framingham and Millbury Targets yesterday, even the figures in their stock rooms, and they did not have them.

    Nice, good to hear that they're on the east coast at least. I'm sure I'll come across them eventually, but with the scarcity of the Cosmos/Swerve wave and then the Shrapnel/Tailgate wave, I'm not holding my breath just yet.

    Even the new AOE voyagers have been few and far between. I found and purchased Slog once at TRU and had been searching for another for a friend for over a month and still haven't seen the wave again since then. Typical movie toy releases, stores over-order the first couple of waves (which end up sitting there for ages) and we're lucky to see any of the later waves show up at all.

    Checked out watertown target. A few hound and galvatron voyager classes. Also had the grimlock optimus and silver knight optimus prime 2 pack. Other than that, just standard aoe stuff. Didn't see lockdown or drift/slog voyagers.

    The Framingham TRU had a couple EVO Primes and EVO Grimlocks and then the standard AoE and shelf warming Generations stuff.

    Of note though for any Star Wars Black Collectors, there were three of the Speeder Bike Scouts and Four Jabbas when I left.

    Just in case someone ordered and hasn't been paying attention, Hasbro Toy Shop has started shipping Jetfire and Windblade. Jetfire arrived yesterday for me and Windblade today. That also hopefully means we'll start seeing them around soon.

    Not that anyone asked, by the way, but Jetfire is the Transformer I didn't know I've been missing for 30 years.

    If anyone is interested in the silver knight 1st edition Prime, I just scored one for $37. He is on sale for $50, then there is a 25% off that in the Target Cartwheel App, then 5% with the target card. I would have never gone near that for $60, but for $37 he is good.

    There is also a $5 off of $19 or more coupon on coupons.com and Hasbrorewards.com. I used it on Jetfire ($39.99) and Roadbuster ($17.99) last week.
