    There was a Scattershot and Onslaught at the Livonia (Haggerty) Target last night.

    Thanks for the heads up SilverShamrock. I picked them up today. The Target in Farmington Hills has 6 Motormaster still :(

    Picked up a Fracture at the TRU at 14 and John-R, the last one they had.

    Target at 12 and Dequindre had the Mirage CW wave, and both Wal-marts (12 and 14, Van Dyke) had diddly and squat.

    Can you get down to the Taylor Meijer? I just left and they had one, as well as a ton of the Sky Reign limbs.

    I also saw my first Scattershot in the wild at the Southgate Walmart the other day and it blew my mind.

    Has anyone seen Sky Lynx in the wild? I don't need another onslaught, but I am about to pick up the duo from BBTS.

    The only Sky Lynx I've seen was the one I picked up from Target a month ago :(  Seems like the Target I usually visit has been ordering one case of voyagers a week, and then folks are snapping them up on Sunday or Monday after they're put out. So maybe give that a try before you order the duo from BBTS?

    If that doesn't work out, assuming you got Onslaught at retail, you could always return the one you get from BBTS to the store you got the first from. Then you wouldn't be out the $$ and someone else would probably buy him up as soon as he went on the shelf :)  Win-win!

    I actually got an PM tip about the Protectobots at the Meijer at Mound and 12 Mile a while back. Thanks for the tip though! It's much appreciated that you remembered and made note of it. :)

    Target in Saginaw finally got a new batch of Onslaught and Scattorshot in...after I got them on the net...it took a month to restock them...not sure why so long when they can get new copies of nearly anything else back in in only a week or less. They're still loaded up on the Prowl wave deluxes and nothing new for legends.

    TRU had the new Smokescreen wave deluxes, but for $19.99 each...pass. They had all 4. Plus a white Optimus and a few Motormasters and a leader Skywarp.

    Meijer has the new Smokescreen wave too, but they were missing Hound. I picked up Smokescreen and left a pair of Trailbreakers and a Wheeljack on the peg. Not sure if they might have only put out part of a box or what...we will see...

    no sign of Sky Lynx yet.

    For anybody out hunting TRUs for the Smokescreen, Hound, Trailbreaker, Wheeljack wave, don't forget they'll price match! Walmart.com has em all listed for $14.96 (I snagged a screen cap), so just show em the pic and walk out with your bounty :) 

    Target will price match too without any fuss, the ones near me have been super nice about it, even if it's not much of a difference.

    Thanks for the head's up! I just popped over there on lunch and snagged a Shockwave along with a Legion Clampdown and Thunderhoof, those lil buggers look so goofy I couldn't pass em up :D 

    They've still got 2 Onslaught, 1 Scattershot, 1 Shockwave, 1 Buzzsaw, 2 pipes, and an RID Legion Windblade.

    Yeah, for 5.99 you can't beat the price. Glad you got some goodies.

    Sadly no, the $5.99 is for the RiD Legion figs. The Legends figs are 9.99 at Target

    Checked out Novi TRU while running an errand on lunch, they're lousy with Sky Reign limbs! Picked up Trailbreaker thanks to a walmart.com price match, 19.99 for a deluxe is WAY too much.

    For torsos they've got a BC Optimus, Cyclonus, and 3x Motormaster, along with both flavors of Leader Megatron.

    They had a lot of mishmashed RiD stuff, lots of Legion 2-packs, a bunch of warriors (G1-ish Grimlock, powered up Sideswipe, powered up Bee, normal Optimus and Strongarm), and the usual 1-3 steppers. Didn't see any Fractures or Megatronuses.

    Someone just traded in a MASSIVE collection at Big Bens.

    Tons of Third Party stuff, along with some official items too. Pretty much every MP released lately.
