    I saw Thundercracker at Target. I forget which though. I was hunting Marvel Legends.

    Just did an early morning Walmart hunt. All of these sightings are in Austin, Tx
    2 Thundercrackers at the Slaughter lane location. Nothing else of note
    1 Thundercracker, 1 G1 style Megatron and 2 Armada Megatrons at the ben white location. They also had those little RID disc things that Michael Lehto posted pictures of in an earlier post.

    While not a Transformer sighting, I did find and buy a snake karai at the Wal Mart of off 290/71 and Mopac. Nothing else of note.

    This is a late sighting, but they still had a few bluestreaks at the Brodie Oaks TRU location. The devastator that was there is gone now.

    TRU in Corpus has MP Bluestreak, the mall location harm ore Bluestreaks, and a Devastator with the mall TRU mark up, the girl behind the desk said she would price match. The Devy was 175, the MP Bluestreak were 65.

    No Bluestreaks or Devys at the other TRUs in town, didn't see any spots with the SKUs either so maybe next round of restocking will be the time for them to show up. Scored Devy on Amazon instead since even that coupon working for me would've only saved the gas burned hunting lol

    I saw 2 Motormasters at the Tomball Target along with deluxe First Aid and Rook. The Target off 249/Jones has 1 Motormaster as well.

    nah, meant at the TRUs excluding that particular one, that one does seem to be the most fruitful tho (even if I never find $#!T!) since its kinda in no man's land compared to the other two.

    SA Walmart 1515 had one CW Armada Megatron, one G1 Megs, & one Leader ThunderCracker. There were some RID figures, but nothing new. Good hunting everyone!

    Were you able to get them? I also hit the Magnolia Walmart and Target (off 2978) on Sunday morning but they had nothing.

    It is supposed to be Serpent O.R. from reports I have seen. I got mine in yesterday but haven't opened it yet.

    Yep, and it boils down to this, if you liked Prowl and the mold in general, then Bluestreak is a fine figure.

    I haven't opened Bluestreak yet, but MP Prowl is a delight to play with and pose. My suggestion is to pick it up, especially if you have a coupon right now. He is still in stock on the TRU website, so I would say you at least have until the end of the month to decide.

    Not a sighting, but what have your experiences with Reprolabels been like for you Texas collectors? I made my first order yesterday for ROTF Ice Cream Twins (found the Shanghai showdown version of the Ice Cream Twins for $6). I'm curious because I've heard a bunch of mixed reviews about shipping times.

    A sighting to report for Austin people however, although not new, is the pumpkin patch thrift store over at Brodie Oaks has a leader class movie 2007 nightwatch Optimus prime for $14. It was in the very back of the store and was 99% complete as of yesterday (99% because maybe one minor panel is missing)

    Hi D3VCON, I bought stickers from ReproLabels a few years back and their products are of good quality. If I remember correctly, the shipping took about a week to 10 days, and my stickers came in a stiff card-stock envelope. It's been a while, so I hope their customer service has remained top notch, as it was then.
