    Wave 3 deluxes at Wylie Wal-Mart on 78 near Lavon, and selling for $9.88 each.

    I nabbed 1 of each about 30min ago, leaving 2 Hot Rods and 1 each of Twinferno and Triggerhappy.

    Jazz210, I meant the Walmart at 918 Bandera Rd near the intersection of W Woodlawn & St. Cloud close to the Children's Shelter. Hope that helps, Happy Hunting!

    Every time I check HTS for TR Fort Max, it says "Out of Stock". I wonder if it pops in & out of stock at random, or maybe I just missed an early morning re-stock? At any rate, thanks for the tip Videriant!

    I read in the "Sales & Deals" thread that it pops in and out so I've been checking once a day for the past week or so.

    P.S. I guess I can't complain to much but "HOLIDAY16" only gives $20 off $100. "HOLIDAYFF2016" gives 25% off orders straight up.

    Dang, I wish I knew about HOLIDAYFF2016 when I ordered Bruticus the other day.

    Went to Ross/Marshalls on I-10 in Houston today. A few Motormasters and nothing else at Ross. I'm about to give up stopping by these places in hopes to find something new.

    Sorry Jazz210, when I was there the pegs were full; I even put back a Breakaway thinking that I could return for it later, oh well. And Kudos to you for finding a Leader Soundwave & posting a great pic!

    I passed up on Leader Blaster there a while back, even though he looked really good. Soundwave' s boom-box mode is plainer and his big yellow visor just seems off somehow, but I do like him more than my Deluxe FOC version. The Takara version looks better, but is too expensive. I think I'd buy a Hasbro Blaster if another one pops up, and if my Christmas budget will stretch.

    There's other new TR figures I've been hoping to catch in-store as well. Before the Christmas re-stock, the stores were pretty bare, & I got tired of hunting. So, I ordered the wave 3 TR Deluxes from BBTS a couple of weeks ago, but it's always good to see the latest waves in-person at retail price. I'm on the fence about TR Alpha Trion, but I'm looking forward to Leader Sixshot. I also just got an order of Gnaw, Kickback, & Bumblebee, & they're neat little guys. I know that BBTS is a bit pricey, but they're very reliable and I've had have excellent Customer Service from them for over a decade, plus I hate hunting all over town only to find one or two pathetic rows of empty pegs.

    Aside from Transformers, I've been looking for the 3 3/4" Star Wars Emperor's Red Royal Guard & the "old" General Leia from The Force Awakens, but I think that they're short-packed.
    Has anyone seen these?


    I hope everyone finds what they're looking for and enjoys the continuing Advent Season, Merry Pre-Christmas Y'all!

    The 3 3/4" Black Series are Walmart Exclusives. I have had to hit multiple Walmarts just to find them, some Walmarts are better than other. A couple Walmarts overstocked on the previous waves and will probably never get the newer waves in. You might want to check Walmart.com as they might have the Leia available online.

    starting to see more TR Alpha Trions and Astrotrains in stores now, but still hesitant to pick either up... now if there are any Gnaw, Kickback, or Bumblebee out there then im all for them. same goes for the Voyager TR Prime and the small headmaster single pack "Swoop" head.

    All wave 3 deluxes I previously reported to have seen everywhere are gone, hopefully it's bc kids or collectors are getting the figures they love and need instead of scalpers getting rich off them

    I did find one in Flowermound a few weeks ago at a TJ Maxx. That seems to be the major store to find them. I believe DFW Vintage Toys has one, but you'll be paying regular price.
