    Wave 4 limbs at Rowlett target and Walmart. Not much else seen today. However, I did snag a white cw Optimus online from TRU. Think it was $24.92 or something but free shipping. My Toon version of Quakewave will be here Saturday and I got a MMC Felisaber during the Toy Dojo birthday deal today. So all in all not a bad Transformers day.

    Acquired Battle Core Optimus Prime at the Toys R Us in Beaumont, TX. They still had the other case pack in of Motormaster still on the shelf with a couple of Silverbolts. Also a couple of Devastator sets.

    I have seen tons of CW Voyager Motormasters at both the Bunker Hill and Willowbrook TRU stores. Looks like I missed all the Battle Core Optimus Primes from those cases.

    It's disgustingly gross, but for $89.99 I'm all in.

    Also, TRU Irving has 3 MP Bluestreaks and 4 Devastators.

    There haven't been too many I don't think. A bunch of those motormasters were leftovers from before. I think we've only gotten around 5 Battle Core Primes.

    Think Wal-mart and Target right now for voyagers at 24.99. However, I have only seen the current motormaster at TRU. I order a Battle Core Prime from TRU shipped for $26 and some change. Just don't know if they had MM in stock

    Right now in the Houston area, I have seen only Voyager waves 1 (Silverbolt) & 3 (Cyclonus & Hot Spot) at Walmarts and Targets lately. Once their stock gets low, I am sure we will see wave 4 Battle Core Optimus Prime and Motormaster in the coming months at those stores. Currently TRU stores have tons of Motormasters with some Cyclonus' leftovers. It also seems that only wave 4 CW deluxes are ready available at Walmart, Target, and TRU - seems all the wave 2 and wave 3 CW deluxes are now gone from the stores in my area. As far as CW Leaders, Thundercrackers seem to be stocked well at Targets with TRU still only having leftover Armada Megatrons if they have CW leaders at all.

    Picked up MP Bluestreak from Bunkerhill TRU. There were 2 more on the shelves. Also spotted a Battle Core OP if anyone is still interested.

    I suppose that no one in the SA area has even seen an Ultra Magnus anywhere after all this time. Well, I decided that Hasbro.com's 20% off promo code (Save20) + free shipping was too good to pass up. That's a fantastic deal for anyone who still wants the Hasbro Titan Devastator (about $130.00).

    I'm still holding out hope that the local big-box stores will do a Christmas shopping season re-set/re-stock for our favorite toy-line. Star Wars & TMNT are taking the lion's share of shelf space around here, while Transformers is relegated to a pathetic 18 inch strip of empty pegs or leftover RID figures.

    Where's Ultra Magnus, Cyclonus, & the Autobot Cars? Distribution nationwide is so poor, why doesn't Hasbro press the retailers to improve things?

    HEB plus on Potranco had the leftovers of the Protectobot limbs and 2 of each of the Autobot cars. Bunch of silverbolts too. As for Ultra Magnus, saw him back in early October at the Walmart off 1604/Potranco. That was the one and only time saw him in the wild.

    Thanks for the info. ibjc1106, I appreciate it. I made my order, but I would have been excited to find it in a local brick & mortar store. Distribution here is just bad, so it's usually e-tailers to the rescue...
