    Any sign of Grimlock/Blaster in NYC? Or for that matter, BH Deluxe Wave 2, which is apparently just starting to trickle out to retailers in the States...

    Commack Target on 25 and the TRU next to it have FoC Soundwaves (and the Target one Soundblaster).

    Not following Beast Hunters, so don't know what's new... but haven't ever seen Optimus before, he's there and another BH guy his price size is there too.

    I'm also in Rochester and I've seen several FoC Starscream's over the past few weeks. I've only seen one kickback (which I ended up buying) and that was at the walmart in Brockport. The target in Chili seems to be a good place to go. They had a full set of combaticons there a few weeks ago and it doesn't seem like many people go there because the shelves are almost always full. I've only just recently started to collect so if you guys know of any hidden gems, like little comic book shops or stores that you wouldn't normally check for toys, that I should check for figures I would appreciate the tip (If you're willing to share that top-secret information).

    I'm new to the forums so hello to my fellow collectors especially the Rochesterians. I'll try to check this thread and help some other people find what they're looking for and just post what I find out there.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention; the Kmart in greece has 2 FoC Soundwaves and 2 FoC Soundblasters ($20 each) as of 2 days ago, just in case anyone was looking for those. They're on the very top of the shelves.

    So YOU bought the Kickback from the Brockport Walmart! I had my eye on it, but only had enough cash for one, and I chose Starscream.

    There is one Blaster at the Brockport Walmart as of 5:30 pm today. I hope a someone here gets it!

    FoC Grimlock at the new walmart in greece (Rochester) he's on the bottom shelf and I pushed him toward the back and slightly behind the boxes to the left so hopefully someone from here who needs him can get him.
    They also had a full set of FoC Combaticons. 2xBH Voyager Predaking and 1 BH Voyager Optimus. They also had FoC Jazz and some other figs.



    lol sorry! I got a good laugh out of that. Sorry man. I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I'll be sure to keep a lookout for another one if you still need it. I can check the Brockport walmart during my break between classes at the college, maybe they'll get another one in soo. If it makes you feel any better, kickback went to a good home and is now hanging out with G1 kickback lol

    The sword is about the only reason I bought him. Found him in Kingston. His vehicle mode is really lacking to me, the bot mode is decent, thats about all it has goin for it. The wings are fairly posable, but not enough for me to really like them. I got BH Soundwave and Wheeljack, just not feeling this line at all, and dont plan on buying anymore. WJ is my favorite of the 3, but his wings really limit the poses the figure can do, mainly the arms, and his "weapon" is super lame.

    Those orange wings can just be popped off of Wheeljack. There aren't any metal pins holding them in.

    I sold my Dreadwing Voyager a few weeks back and am having sellers remorse. If anybody sees one in the capital district if you could give me a shout.

    No sign of Grimlock or Wave 2 Beast Hunters at any of the locations I checked yesterday, namely Times Square, Queens Place Target, and Rego Centre TRU.

    Sorry, I haven't been-- couldn't tell you.

    As for me, I checked Times Square again today, and they've got at least one of everything from the first wave of each Beast Hunters assortment (Cyberverse, Deluxe, and Voyager), but still no Grimlock or Wave 2 BH Deluxes.
