    Huntington TRU,

    Picked up what looked like the last of the MP Grimlocks at store closing last night... first Transformers purchase of 2010!

    Also snagged an Animated Rodimus. (A few Ani Rodimus and Ironhide remained)

    Nice to meet ya Sproket.

    Bay Parkway TRU had a number of Animated Ironhides but no Rodimus.

    College Point TRU also had some Ironhides, as well as one last Rodimus, which was surprisingly right out in the open. Bought an Ironhide and that last Rodimus.

    Ironhide was misassembled so I'll exchange it for another one on Sunday, which shouldn't be a problem since it's not exactly rare like Rodimus.

    Thankfully, Rodimus has no QC problems at all: No upside down Autobot symbol, no paint splotches, and no loose joints. Also the guy's instantly become one of my favorite Transformers toys in my collection.

    Anyone been to Amok Time recently? They have anything interesting? i saw on the site they have the Challenge at Cybertron 3 pack and I'm tempted to get it if they have it in the store.

    Yeah they have a few of them. Don't know how much $$ though. They also had some SDCC stuff but I think they sold it all. (Blaster, Cap, Thor). Have lots of new joes as well.

    I wouldn't order from them....you have like a 30% chance of getting what you ordered...if you are trying to get megatron, they will probably screw it up and send you prime instead..

    Plenty of Rodimus over at Valley Stream and 2 or 3 Ironhides on the sidecap at the end of the aisle. No Grimlocks.
    Also 2 Rodimus at Douglaston TRU, but they're $14.99 there. They also have 1 Grimlock(same price as everywhere else).

    Carle Place has nothing.

    The TRU by Smithhaven Mall had two MP Grimlocks...now one. :D 

    This is the first time I've even ventured out to check for him too. Definitely worth the sacrifice of a lunch break, but now my stomach's growl could give Grimmy a run for his money...

    Edit: sighted at 12:35pm

    Hit Carle Place on the way home from work. Had 3 MP Grims on the shelf and fresh stock of Seasprays. No new animated. But with two billion Cyb Ratchets blanketing the pegs, probably won't see em there for a little while.

    Well South Setauket Wal-Mart has nothing, LITERALLY. They've had the reset for about a month & all the tags are up but NO new stock, only 3 Tuner Mudflaps & a Desert Ratchet from ROTF. When I asked about new stock coming in it was implied that no new stock would come in until all the old stock went away. So basically, no new toys until Tuner Mudflap sells. RAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don't believe what the sales associates tell you. They tend to lie- I have personal experience with this. They are probably just slow with the reset. I noticed my Walmarts in the Westbury area have been very slow to reset, and when they did, it was partial. I noticed too that they made the toy section way smaller- I personally think it's a dumb move.
