    Awesome find! So...... quick question to anyone out there. Are they REALLY only releasing the last 4 Prime masters with that optimal Optimus exclusive only?

    As far as Hasbro has told us. Yes. Hopefully the POTP Throne of the Primes will be more easily available later in the year. Hasbro really rushed the POTP line. They need to slow down as CW, TR, and POTP has been selling well from what I can tell (shelves are pretty empty most of the time but that could be due to stores not getting more product in quick enough).

    In all honesty, I’d rather that exclusive be the mass production. Those old optimal Optimus colors were cool in ‘98 but I’m over it. Especially if it means we get the last 4 Prime masters. If not, maybe they’ll release them in the WfC trilogy with pretender shells. Autobot shells only please since you have them so egregiously outnumbered

    Rockwall Target has PotP Voyagers:
    3x Elita-1
    1x Hun-grrr
    1x Grimlock

    Deluxes:
    2x Rippersnapper
    1x Moonracer

    Some Cyberverse stuff like OP and Megatron as well, didn’t know what to look out for in that line.

    Bought the last SS Jazz from Target, and found Legion Hound and Dragonstorm at Ross; last of each, also have either of them been found before now in the U.S.?

    I'm not sure how helpful this will be to my fellow San Antonians, but City Base Walmart had two Novastars among older wave POTP Deluxes. I bought one & a lady got the other.

    There were plenty of POTP Voyagers like Grimlock & Elita-1 but nothing else that was new. City Base Target had Cyberverse (which I paid little attention to) & a Movie Leader Grimlock & some Studio Scale Deluxes. With POTP winding down, all I'd like is the new Bumblebee VW toys.

    My brother's Birthday is coming up & he'd like to finish his Abominus, but Sinnertwin, Cutthroat, & Blot, are hard to find in-store lately.

    Anyway, I wish you all GOOD HUNTING! :thumb

    I'm hoping we will see the SS VW Bee and the movie toys soon. I have yet to find SS Ironhide anywhere, but I haven't been out much lately cause of all the rain we've been having here in the Houston area.

    Hey, that's near the Central Market I drop in at sometimes.
    You haven't lived until you've had something from their bakery.

    20180911_132648.jpg Found this G1 Prime at the Walmart next to Cowboy Stadium in Arlington. I saw movie Prime and Bee on shelf but no G1 Prime. Was about to leave when I noticed a box on shelf above. Pulled it down and G1 Prime was in there! Look like it is one per case :(

    Yep, that's a typical.
    You can tell because the TFs are scarcely dispersed and the place looks like it got hit by a tornado.

    I found/got the only Jada Metals G1 Optimus Prime at the Walmart on Spring Cypress/249 this morning. They also had multiple POTP wave 3 deluxes (Blot, Cuttthroat, and Sinnertwin).
