    The Long Island City Toys R Us still has a Energon Six Shot left, 2x Windcharger, and 3x Swindles. They also have some of "newer" basics in the value packs like Cruellock and Command Ravage. Perfect for army building.

    1st two basic sized combaticons in TRU, Middletown. Kickback is an especially sweet figure (for a basic).

    Also note that I saw some TF KOs in Easter baskets. Aside from the usual gestalts, a local K-Mark included a red BW Megatron KO (similar to the T-Wrecks colors), and a BW Dinobot (with a white and black patter, similar I think to BW Grimlock).

    TRU in Syracuse had 2 Battle Ravages but my friend picked them up. One for me and one for him.... and that's right he rules!

    He said there wasn't anything else new though.

    Went to TRU Time Square today, was shocked to see a whole bunch of Swindle, Grimlock, Windcharger and... Silverstreak :D 

    A lot of the basic 2 for 1's are one as well, but no combiner limbs, at all.

    holy frag, the Sixshot/Alpha-Q/Dinobot and Wing Saber cases are coming.

    Man, I hope they flood the market in the TRU soon before Cybertron rolls in *prays*

    Thanks for the heads up guys!

    I may call upon you to pick up stuff I need:) 

    And nice to see you're a fellow NYer Drew!:D

    Heads up guys, dunno if this is new but my bro' AcidWing stopped by Atlantic ave. Target and their deluxe shelves are filled with new stuff:

    Only new basics he saw were 2xdustorms and 2xsledges.
    A bunch of Barricades, Steamhammers, Stormjets, Downshifts, Kickers and 3-4 Roadblocks.
    Strangely he found no Starscream repaint :cry 
    And the new Universe stuff (like 3-4x each of Cheetor, Ramulus and Frostbite); 2 Whirls along with 2 of that Magna Stampede pack.

    No new Megas, just lonely Landquakes.

    And no new Alts, just like a shelf of Swindles.

    Here's a quick run down.

    Times Square TRU
    A healthy supply of Alt Grimlock, Windcharger, and Swindle.

    Whitestone TRU has Alpha Q, Sixshot, and Reissue Tracks for $10.98!

    LIC TRU has Sixshot and Prowl for $10.98!

    Each TRU seems to price the Reissues differently so check the scanners.

    College Point Target has Terradive, Windrazor, Kickback, and Stormcloud.

    Elmhurst Target has Barricade, Kicker, Longhorn, Frostbite, and Night slash Cheetor.

    I went there around 2:30-3 as my last class ended 1:30 XP

    I hope they get some more new stuff around the Brooklyn area.

    Good luck with that. The Dekalb Ave TRU has Alpha Q, Wing Saber, Six Shot, and the Grimlock & Swoop 2 pack. There's not much selection for the free basic though...

    Thanks. BTW at TRU Times Square, they surprisingly had Energon Starscream and Roadblock as well as a horde of Storm Jets, Steamhammers and Barricades. Absolutely NO new basics and they are free with 14.99 or more purchase on Energon. This stinks!

    TRU in Middletown again. This time with Wing Saber, Alpha-Q and Six Shot. I nabbed the WS, but upon closer inspection decided to pass on the other two figs.

    Heh, they probably did that to clear out all those Strongarms, and Insecticons...

    The Dekalb Ave TRU surprisingly restocked the Energon Megas, though I did notice the Grimlock & Swoop pack was gone when I went there.

    Yesterday 2/25 at TRU LIC: Energon Const. Maximus limbs (picked up Steamhammer, Sledge, and Duststorm) [2 more limbs to go to complete Devastator, like that name better]. En. Superion (main part, no other S. limbs), Bruticus limbs, E. Starscream, Roadblock, Alt. Grimlock (a small tear on the top part of the box), Alt. Windcharger x2, Alt. Swindle. When I bought the parts for CM, SH was 9.99, Sledge was 6.99, and I got DS for free. Does the TRU TS have the same deal? Give me the heads up NYC!

    Yo! Today is the last day for the free basic deal. All TRU are having that sale! Take advantage! Also when I went to the LIC TRU Starscream was already gone.
