    I got weirdwolf, chromed one, and highbrow across several walgreens in McAllen and edinburg...I had $20 worth of points on walgreens card so the hit wasn't too bad.

    Tried again at potranco/ellison. No luck. Looks like someone tore up the section though. Also tried millitary/1604 to no luck either.

    Anyone in the Dallas area find any Wave 2 figures yet? I've checked a couple of Walgreens but didn't find anything.

    Is anyone who follows this thread anywhere near the RGV? I've been here 10 years now and I've not met a single other TF collector.
    I went to the corpus action figure expo yesterday ( had to drive 2 1/2 hours north) and saw a couple of collectors there.
    A local toy shop in harlingen does a collector's event every 1st Sunday down here. It's cheap to get in and has been worth walking thru everytime. Not a lot of TFs there, which probably answers my question about collectors in the area.

    I know people have found them at a few Walgreens. It is hit and miss though, as they usually just have three figures on the pegs. Maybe three of the same figure, maybe three different figures. If you go hunting don't forget the coupon posted above.

    I don't think anything has hit Target, TRU, or Walmart in the area yet.

    Got a Highbrow at Walgreen on Hwy 6 @ Bellaire. They had a Chromedome and Mindwipe left. Thanks to the Walgreen coupon, I got it at a half reasonable price. Wolfwire seems to be the hardest to find; I've yet to see one.

    Palestine Walmart had the wave 1 TR deluxes, and the exclusive Marvel Legends Bucky, and Falcon.
    Pretty weak sighting, I know...I was just excited to post my findings in a different state.

    I found all the Wave 2s Deluxes at Target in Katy while visiting my brother in the area. It was the one south of I10 off of 99? Whatever you locals call that one. :)

    If true, I would imagine the first sighting will be late Sept due to street date breaks.

    Thanks! Targets in the area must be getting new shipments in. Just saw a fresh case of wave 2 TR deluxes at the Target at 290 and Spring Cypress. Still at least one of each left on the pegs

    Cedar Hill Walmart has wave 1 deluxes and legends for Titan's Return. All present except Wheelie and no Titan Masters. The one Blurr has a paint chip on his cockpit.

    Saw Chromedome and Highbrow at the Target in Wylie.


    Hasbro products were not eligible for the coupon anyway.

    They won't be streetdated.

    That didn't stop people from using it anyways. Don't know what Hasbro products the limitations refer to but I had no problems using it myself.
