    Well, I spent less than 10 mins in there, I didn't really ask when i went there. It was a quick in and out but i did look in both TF section, front near the door and in the TF aisle.

    but I did manage to snag 1 at caesar bay TRU on my way to work, pricematched :)  now i have one in dino and one in bot form. :) 

    I know theres a small issue with some grimlocks But I just took mine out and he has Zero issue with hip, his hip is tight, could even stand on it's toes(overexag alittle) but Not loose at all.

    Picked up a Voyager Hound at Clifton Park TRU today. Last Hound, but a good amount of other Voyagers. Also Strafe two packs (2).

    I normally keep my figures in the package but Hound looks way too cool. This guy might be coming out of the box.

    HEY GUYS.. I'm looking for IDW Generations SKIDS, he was in the previous waves of deluxe, first wave of 2014. Could you guys check to see if he's still available in any Target/walmart/TRUs?

    thanks

    I do believe that they said that they were going to rerelease the figures sometime soon.

    Btw, anybody seen Hound/Galvatron near here?

    Good luck with Skids, haven't seen one since I think February :(  (also looking for one)

    BTW, the new Previews shows Rattrap, Tankor, Roadbuster, and Sky-Bite, with an August estimate...

    Yeah, good luck finding anyone from the Waspinator/Skids/Dreadwing/Goldbug wave. It was only briefly available. The only place you'll see them barring some development is at a specialty shop, like a comic/hobby store, not a regular toy store/big box store. And they will want well above MSRP for it.

    However, Hasbro did indeed say that Skids would be rereleased later this year. I believe they suggested it would be in the fall, but nobody has preorders yet. I don't recall if they mentioned his wavemates.

    I always feel bad when I hear people not finding these, when our TRU had them, they were stocked to the MAX with Skids, Goldfires, Waspinators, DAMN!

    Carle Place TRU has wave 2 movie voyagers. Bring a printout or smartphone for price match though as CP marked them us as usual. Grabbed the only Strafe/Swoop 2 pack thingy tonight.

    Lake Grove TRU has one MP Grimlock left, as of 12:30pm, near the display at the front of the store... Had two, but I grabbed one... Make sure you bring your 20% off coupon. I asked about it at the Customer Service desk, and the woman just handed me a coupon. Didn't see any booklets, though.

    good that you have the coupon. I had the coupon too and used it on the MP grimlk last week. But before I used it I took a Good picture of it on my phone. I just picked up another MP grim yesterday and Used the 20% phone coupon. Funny thing is that when I show her the coupon on the phone, she just looked and typed in the numbers, no scan. :) .

    $79.99 ... thankfully.

    Also, forgot to mention, has anyone seen Generations Swerve get restocked in Suffolk County. Picked up Cosmos at my local Target, in Medford, but decided to pick up Swerve a couple of days later, and the pegs were cleaned out, except for two Megatron/Chop Shop sets. Also checked out the Target in Setauket, on Saturday, to no avail.

    Good to know, that's odd though usually they are higher, I think their acid storms were 86
