    With the amount I've had to exchange because of factory defects (warped plastic, missing screws and pins) that made the toys untransformable (Optimus, Jazz, Stinger, Grimlock, Blackout), I'm just gonna stick with major retailers for my Studio Series purchases. I NEED that return policy. My second Jazz has a goddamn screw where there should be a pin! Don't know how they fucked that up. I gotta replace him soon.

    If anyone is looking for G1 Soundwave, Walmart at 850 Post road in Warwick is putting them out right now. No sign of tapes and the lady I talked to wouldn't check for me

    Good news: Newbury Comix in Providence Place Mall has SS Long Haul and KSI Boss. Bad news: They're $45 each. If you have more money than patience, check 'em out.

    Woonsocket Ollie's has a few Cyberverse Thundercrackers for $5 each. They also got some TLK 1-steps, a USB Sqweeks, and an opened 'Bee 2-pack where someone failed to transform VW 'Bee and shoved him back in. The nearby Burlington has a sealed 'Bee 2-pack.

    I took the last Bee 2-Pack that was "good", saw & left the one you mentioned (this was last week)

    They also had a crap ton of wave 1 mighty mugs (the spinning head ones) of prime/bee/meg/ss -- they were on the bottom shelf to the side of the Cyberverse figures you mentioned

    Nope.

    Don't waste your time at Burlington in Warwick. For shits and giggles I stopped in. The only TF they had was one Bee 2-pack. Only Siege deluxe figures at that Walmart, too. Weird.

    Coventry Walmart has the 35th display. Both Warwick stores do not yet. No Ratchets yet either (at least at the stores I checked).

    No 35th Anniversary display at Silver Spring st Walmart in Providence yet(as expected) although both Walmart and Brickseek show them being in stock.
    Gonna try the Cranston Walmart this afternoon. Hope to find something.

    Yea, both Warwick stores show in-stock on Brickseek, but they didn't put them out yet. Coventry was the only one I saw them at.

    Also, Ratchet has made his way to RI. I bought the lone one at the Warwick Ave / Broad St location this morning.

    0-5 on my weekend Ratchet hunt (stores North of Providence)

    Haven't been to a Walmart up this way yet to check for 35th displays as I already have the figures I am hunting for from pre-orders.
