    Lansing - Target on Edgewood has the newest Beast Hunter deluxes - Arcee, Knock Out, and Vertebreak. Also a Voyager BH Ultra Magnus. Nothing else of note found on the south side today.

    Arcee was already gone when I got there but I did take the Vertebreak and Knock Out. Nothing else from that wave was left.

    P.S.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Went on a bit of an adventure in Livonia and found this lot at the nearby targets:

    8 and Haggerty has Sharkticon Megs, Grimwing, and his dark blue repaint for voyagers, only new deluxe here was Skylinx. They did have a ton of the Predacons Rising legends class guys, a couple Ultimate BH Primes and Ultimate Predakings, and the Abominus gift set.

    8 and Grand River has the new legends dudes, the blue Grimwing, Springer, and Blitzwing. No new Deluxes here, but a ton of the new Legends guys.

    14 and M-5 has 1 IDW Bee and Skylinx for new Deluxes (I got the IDW Megs and a Bee), and then 1 of each of BH Magnus, Springer, Shockwave, Sandstorm, Blitzwing, Grimwing, Sharkticon Megs, and Predaking.

    Anybody had any luck finding a BH Arcee?

    I found the new BH deluxes at Target in Allen Park. There were a few Vertabeaks left. I took the only Arcee and Knockout they had, but pricing went up to $15.59 for each figure which sucks.

    They're starting to show up at Target stores around SE Michigan. I have yet to see all of them, but I have personally bought BB and Orion Pax. Someone else keeps getting the other case mates.

    I just found the FoC Abominus set (all 5 of em) at target on Coolidge near 15 mile. I got a BH Arcee and Knockout, there's still 3 Skylinx left and a bunch of voyagers 2 Springer, 2 Santstorm, 2 BH Magnus, Sharkticon Megs, Shockwave, Grimwing, and 3 Darksteel.

    No luck with IDW set, but there's also a bunch of the construct-a-bots

    Am I the only one who sees constructabots and thinks "waste of natural resources/ really cool dinosaurs died to create the petroleum products that were squandered to make this stuff?"

    I'm with you there. They seem like TF themed Bionicle figs, not real Transformers. Maybe this is just another attemp to grab the lego crowd? I just want bots that turn into cars, but if these construct-a-bots were cheaper they could be neat to use in customs.

    TRU in Jackson has one Acid Storm and one Soundwave left, they are near the customer service desk. The Soundwave's box is pretty mangled, I passed on it.

    When I went to Pontiac TRU on 8/1 at 6pm...the dude at the customer service desk told me that they had gotten 56 MP Soundwaves in. The guy in front of me got 2 of them. I had one on hold. The clerk said I got the last one.
