    Has anyone in the D/FW area seen the wave 3 deluxes yet? I keep seeing all these posts about wave 4 and I'm hoping we didn't just get skipped. :/

    I've still yet to find Magnus or Thundercracker, too.

    Went by the Target in Cinco Ranch and scored all 4 of the wave 4 CW deluxes. They had a Prowl and Sunstreaker left after I got my set. They also had Cyclonus and leader Thundercracker. Was looking for the Marvel Legends Hulkbuster wave but no dice.

    About an hour ago at the Frisco (El Dorado) Target. Sunstreaker, Prowl, Mirage, and Ironhide were all present and accounted for...

    They came and went by real fast. The distribution on CW has been a bit peculiar around here; it's like whenever the wave first hits, Target tries to get a single case out to as many stores as they can, then after that we get a wait or even restocks of older waves. I expect the same for the Wave 4 autobot cars. Bruticus isn't slated until next year, which I'd wager means late December, which means we'll be getting restocks of probably wave 3 and 4 for Christmas sales. My guess is they'll be back around in the next few months, both at Target and Walmart, but it's probably easier to just find them online. Hasbro Toy Shop still had them up, last I looked.

    Leaders may be spottier. Armada Megs is going to shelf-warm the whole class into oblivion which that stupid head of his.

    Alright, i'm just confused by the distribution in this area, I went out last week to a few stores and I found a smattering of new stuff. I went out for a real quick look today, and all I found were the same sad armada Megatrons all over the place.

    I've seen all of those come and go, but with a quickness that boggles the mind. It's like the people in charge only order wave one in any real numbers while they order the subsequent waves like they think no one is going to get those.

    Picked up Wave 4 of deluxes at Target Lakeline. They only had the one set out. But they had Thundercracker and Cyclonus there as well, which should still be there as of last night.

    I just picked up CW deluxe wave 4 Ironhide, Mirage, Prowl, & Sunstreaker at the Target in Tomball off 2920. I left one of each there as well as 2 of each of CW Voyager wave 3 Cyclonus and Hot Spot. They also have 1 Leader Thundercracker that I passed on for now.

    Went by the Cinco Ranch Target today. They still had some wave 4 CW deluxes like Ironhide, Sunstreaker, and Prowl. They also still had Cyclonus and Thundercracker. Noticed they also had two of the Marvel Legends Rhino figures but passed on them. Was able to get all the Hulkbuster wave online on amazon.

    Bay Area Target has 1 each of the wave 4 CW deluxes (Prowl, Mirage, Ironhide, and Sunstreaker), 2 CW Cyclonuses, 1 leader Thundercracker, and 1 unpainted RiD2015 Jazz... Wait... that's what it's supposed to look like!?

    Target Pearland also had W4 Deluxes. I picked up one set, left another set. Also, W3 Voyagers, 2x Hot Spot & 2x Cyclonus. Sadly, no UM.
