    I just bought one. Its a limit one per person now and it looks like there are only 3 left. Two of the boxes looked banged up. I'm not sure if they have more hidden behind the counter or not.

    Sorry for being abbreviated in my previous posts.

    Soundwave is in stock at the Toys R Us in Garden City/Carle Place in Long Island, NY.

    They're already moving, so if you're anywhere close, get on over.

    if there aren't any more on the floor when you get there, go to customer service and ask for a hold for Patrick.

    I didn't really look around, but they only had 4 on the shelf behind the counter. Maybe there was more elsewhere.

    Here is the link to the listing on TRU's site:

    Transformers Masterpiece - Soundwave - Hasbro - Toys "R" Us

    The store will do a price match to their site without a problem. Screw paying the Times Square markup.

    Yeah... Stuff like this will disappear quickly. One has to keep in mind that there are a lot of members here who are only a lunchtime train ride away from TS TRU. In addition to the aforementioned, there are probably as many (or more) lurkers who silently keep tabs on this thread.

    Westbury Target Had generations. 2 Megs, 2 Orions, and 1 Bee. I tool a Trailbreaker. They also had the Megatron and Starscream Legends two packs.

    Didn't check Walmart.

    TRU New Hartford, NY now has a spot in the TF aisle for MP Soundwave $119.99 & MP Acid Storm $74.99. I bought the last SW yesterday, but they're expecting more to come in on a Sunday truck.
