    I got the Kre-o Devastator set thanks to the online sale they were running last week (20% off of $100 or more and free shipping).

    If anyone sees the TRU exclusive version, please let me know. I've got a coupon and a reward I'd like to use on it. Thanks!

    Anyone know where we can get the blind packed Kreons (besides Coventry Wal-Mart)? I checked Warwick Walmart and Target and Providence Walmart today and nothing.

    I've only seen them at TRUs. I found them at Bellingham and my friend found them at Dedham.

    Got Thundercracker at the Warwick TRU, they received 4 for this shipment, but none left. So at least they are trickling out

    That's prolly all they will get. Sucks. I never even saw the Roddy when he was supposed to be in stores. *meh* I'll just be happy with my Japanese one.

    The first block of text is asking if anyone's seen certain items after that is my own sightings.

    It's a long shot but I'm going to throw this out there, has any sighted older Generations (and in some even more unlikely circumstance, previous Classics lines) toys recently? I'm after Thundercracker as my top priority, but also need a Soundwave, Thrust, Dirge, Darkmount or Skullgrin and Scourge. I'm not sure about Thunderwing or Drift, since I prefer their redecos that I already have and don't want to have too many duplicate molds.

    As for what I have in return:

    Smithfield Crossing Target seems to have to have a handful of Prime toys - no vehicons, but a few hotshots, at least one bumblebee, a knockout, and a wheeljack. Maybe more, but I'm not into Prime so I didn't pay close attention.
    As for FOC they have all three figures from the first wave - pretty sure it was 2 shockwaves I saw. They were restocking the aisle while I was there this morning but didn't see them putting out any more TF items.

    Warwick Walmart, at the old mall has few of both FOC Optimus and Jazz, but no Shockwaves.

    The TRU there still has just all the later wave Generations figures I own, as earlier reported in the thread (Skyshadow x2, Kup, Wheeljack, x1 Warpath.. no Junkheap from what I believe)

    Up the road Bald Hill TJMaxx has one or two clearance Generations Wheeljacks just like every other I've visited - 6 dollars if not mistaken.

    Smithfield TJMaxx is the exception to the trend - no Generations items, a few DoTM items though, I believe.

    Greenville Stop and Shop no longer has Generations Soundwave, but given that was reported here months ago, not surprised (still was a let down for me).
    They did have some movie stuff (guessing DOTM) - one of the tuner duo, Ratchet (not sure if he's uncommon or not, but seems to be at least a change from all the bees) and maybe 3 others I can't recall. Had maybe 7 to 8 of a mix of Drivetrain, Swasplate and a blue excavator I can't recall the name of minicons.

    Phew. That's all for now!

    Anyone interested in a TFCC Shattered Glass Drift? It has the correct parts (no mixed up fist or pistols). It was transformed once and put back in the box. If so, PM me an offer.

    On the hunt for Voyager Prime Dreadwing... no such luck. However the TRU in Warwick had 3 Thundercrackers sitting on the shelf as of 5:30pm last night. I passed and drove home empty handed for the day.
