    Just picked up the lone springer at the south Irving walmart off 183 on my way to work. There were two starscreams on the shelf and a single megatron (who I think has been there a while now).

    Thanks for the post @mattski. You made me decide to get out the door faster and stop and check my local store.

    I'm in a different group, and someone found Springers in Austin at a cedar park walmart. Super crushed boxes though. So looks like they're arriving everywhere now.

    Update: one of them got pushback from Target. Street date of 7/28. So, your mileage may vary at a Target.

    Just grabbed a Springer and Starscream from Lewisville Walmart mentioned above. There’s one Springer left and 4 Starscreams.

    Anybody know if there’s anything different in This Starscream vs the last wave version? They seem to be packed in a slightly different pose (his arms are turned).

    Springer is a pretty good figure, his ankles are super loose (nature of the transformation) but he can hold a pose nicely.

    This Starscream though, man it's a great figure all around. Looks great too.

    100% on Starscream, he is a great voyager and I can't wait for the other seekers. I noticed Springers ankles myself, I'm hoping some future will fix it. I've noticed he's a bit back heavy and is having a hard time standing straight, maybe that's just mine.

    Me too, I collect seekers so I'm all in on these figures. As for Springer, he is pretty back heavy, especially if you load his guns and 'copter gizmo on his back for storage. I've noticed that if you give him an action pose you can get him to balance quite nicely. He struggles with a static forward facing position.

    Not a retail sighting but since it is an online exclusive, Siege Greenlight is now available to order on Amazon. I just placed my order and should have it tomorrow by 9pm!
