    It is definitely not always the case. I feel like Houston gets a fair share of firsts in the states.

    That is why you subscribe to this thread and have it e-mail you when new posts are created. Of course, that is assuming you check your e-mail on a frequent basis.

    You can't expect things to last on the shelves that long nowadays. There are more collectors out there than any of us realize and with stores not stocking enough to meet demand, you are gonna have to check stores on a frequent basis or you just get lucky. That being said, it is disheartening how Walmarts around my parts can not keep the Transformers Siege products in stock. I've seen some deluxes, but Voyagers and Leaders are very hard to come by right now.

    At this point hunting locally almost seems pointless really. Its way less stressfull to just pre-order online. Time is money, and even with marked up prices and shipping it'll come out to cheaper than taking time out of your day to check multiple stores on a regular basis. Maybe I'm just getting old but nothing is more valuable than time, so if I can save the hassle of unnecessarily wasting more of what little free time I have I'll take it.

    I mean, this is a sightings board. If you want it to work for you then you have to check it regularly.

    I hear ya, I really only check Target's that I happen to be around when I'm visiting my clients. I usually order from BBTS but they tend to sell full cases of the Leaders and Voyagers which sucks if you've already got one of them.

    Well sure. But it's honestly not that big a deal to me personally. Would I like them? Of course. But if I miss out, it's whatever. I'm pretty casual about it these days.

    Only SS #32 Optimus Prime, which is a better figure than the first release IMHO

    Last night, the Super Target at Westheimer (Houston) had newest studio series Deluxe. I picked up Lockdown, Bumblebee (07), Sideswipe, and Crankcase. They should one of each left i think.

    San Antonio folk,

    Found Studio series Jetfire, SS32 Optimus, and DOTM Megatron at Target at Park North on 410, and only 2 WW2 Bumblebees at Cibolo Wal Mart.

    Theyre alright, Jetfire is made of a fairly thin plastic that has a hard time tabbing in well, but this one is staying combined onto that Optimus. Also, be careful of the landing gear cane, the pin joint where the landing gear folds up (the black section of it), the pinhole is made of that same super thin plastic, so it disintegrates as soon as you fold it (happened to me and one other person so far).Megatron, and I've noticed this with a few copies, comes with stress marks near the knees on the piece that folds up to become the tanker, which is a result of the pin that they forced in there, so not sure if there is a way to escape that. The Optimus is alot better than the first run, but definitely has some of the same tolerance issues as the others above. WW2 Bee, oh lordy, this one is made entirely of that thin plastic Jetfire is made from, and nothing really stays tabbed together at all. Regardless, all of these look nice and will make solid display pieces! They're out here in San Antonio guys!
