    Good news! Target Middletown finally set the toy isle so we have Cybertron! And more good news: we're carrying alts again! Which means we had a Swerve! Which mean I have a Swerve! :lol  Dunno if there's more in back or not since we didn't get to backstocking all the toys but I'll post if there are.

    The bad news is all the Cybertron is Wave 1 so there's really not anything to get excited over. I was hoping we'd have wave 2 right off the bat since we got it so late.

    TRU Watchung: Wave 1 of Cybertron (looks like they just restocked, as there are some Primes and Megatrons) and the 1.5 scouts... one Dark Scorpinok. Wanted to find a red alert. :( 

    Walmart Watchung still only has Energon leftovers.

    Neptune Target has redone their toy ailse and put out tons of Cybertron. Looks like the first wave and wave 1.5. They had Red Alert and Override (about 2 each). I looked through all of them in hopes of finding Blurr, Runamuck or Longrack, but I guess they're in the next wave.

    That Target is actually in Ocean, but the Walmart nearby (like 2 miles away) is in Neptune. They're between rt 18 and the Parkway, around exit 100 or so.

    Stopped at TRU in Woodbridge I think it was today, nothing exciting except a green tagged reissue Thundercracker.

    Yeah it's Ocean, although I have heard them announce 'welcome to neptune target.' Route 66 east off exit 100, just follow the signs that say Asbury Park.

    A few Updates: KB Toys in Freehold Mall has Energon Prime and Galvatron for $24.99 each. If you missed out here's your chance. Zapp Comics, also in the mall, had Alternator Decepticharge for $39.99, a little steap IMO. Ten dollars less and I would've gotten him. Freehold TRU, outside the mall, had 2 Alternator Swerves along with many Grimlocks, Swindles, Windchargers and Ravages. The Cybertron toys were also present, but I don't wanna pay 9.99 for a scout class figure in KB.

    Has anyone seen Red Alert or Override yet? I'll keep everyone posted about the places I look... but just wondering if they've been spotted yet.

    Eatontown Boscov's in Monmouth Mall just got in some Cybertron figures today around 3pm. The guy was actually just opening the boxes and laying them out on the counter since there was no space for them yet. Plenty of Overrides and Red Alerts as well as the usual scouts, deluxes, voyagers and leaders.

    Btw, for anyone who want to save a few bucks- Boscov's still has a sign up saying 30% off all TFs. I got the deal on Red and Override today. They may have taken it down since it's not supposed to apply to Cybertron, but if it's still up can leaders for $28. Almost got Megs, but I'm waiting for Galvatron anyway.

    Parkway exit 105, or exit 13 or so off rt 18, both to rt 36. The mall is just up the road, Boscov's is next to the parking garage.

    I just went today around 2pm and the 30% does not apply to Cybertron. Megs and Op are $44.99 each. I was hoping to pay $28 for Op, oh well. TRU across the street has nothing new from normal.

    It's worth it if you have the time since you can hit quite a few stores in the area. Around Boscov's, within a few miles, there's a TRU, Target and Walmart. Then if you decide to feel adventurous, head over to 33 and hit Freehold TRU, then down 9 for Target and Walmart and then across to 70 for Brick Target and Walmart. :)  Might need to make a day of it.
