    Yea thats what I figured I may just get him online, which may be the case for anything higher than $50 And hey they do come out in retail stores like target or Walmart that would be neat, but I feel like at one point either Walmart or Target did carry the big figures I think when Metroplex came out I think Walmart might have carried him in store but it was a while ago and I don’t remember

    I PO'd Skyfire on Pulse...don't want to chance not finding him. It would be awesome if he actually started shipping next week.

    I'll be in the Columbia area again for work this week...maybe WM will come through on Springer for me. They had SW and SS early on during wave 2, so, maybe hell will freeze over again.

    Toys R Us was the only place that had Metroplex in store. At least, until a few Costcos got closeout pallets of them. Walmart at least seems to be getting more selective or perhaps cautious about what Transformers stuff they carry in stores. It's hard to find locations that carry Battlemasters at all, and on the other end, it seems like typically they'll carry either Generations Leaders or Studio Leaders, but not both. Occasionally neither. Likewise some pick one kind of Voyager or the other. I imagine after the inundation of Rampage even more stores will have Studio Series Voyagers go off the planograms with the next reset. But all that being the case, it won't surprise me if Jetfire ends up being effectively online-only in the US and other places without Toys R Us anymore.

    I completely agree on everything. Of course I only have 1 refraktor at the moment and still can’t find Brunt. Springer is awesome and even though the grey is slightly off and the green is a little brighter, I’m using the blades from T30 springer. I think it looks a lot better

    Kinda late but there is one more Springer at the little Debbie Walmart. I saw the box sitting on one of the pallets they were about to stock and I asked an employee if I could grab him out of the case.There was one more sealed case so one fresh Springer if you swing by.

    There is a Springer at Maryville Walmart as of right now; bottom shelf behind everybody else. Looks like the box assortment was two Optimus Primes, one Starscream, one Springer

    Found wave 2 micromasters at Krogers today. Still haven't found wave 2 battlemasters. Anyone around Knoxville sees them show up at Krogers, give me a shout please.

    Yea I think that what it was because I remember seeing Metroplex at Walmart but they only had two sitting on the shelf from what I remember but hey we need Toys R Us back since they were the only ones that would carry the big figures

    One Springer left at the Hixson Walmart on 153. Put it behind the 2 Shockwaves if you're looking.

    I managed to catch the only Springer at the Fairview Walmart. Glad the storms didn't persist much through the morning or else the drive up and back along 840 would have been even less fun.

    Okay so yeah Springer is great. He is very difficult to transform at first but this is not a fault of the toy it is truly the instructions. There are tabs for everything and everything clicks in to place. Once you figure out where everything goes it is easy to go in between modes.

    Columbia GameStop, Ross and Bargain Hunt all fruitless.

    But, I did fine a lone Red Alert hiding at the back of one of the pegs at WM after my earlier post. I left him.
