    A few Walmart in Houston have Jetfire Siege. Unfortunately, and I can't believe I am still encountering this, 2 out of 3 locations where I found it had open boxes with another toy in it. Something like a return that employees don't bother to check, or don't know the product. Both locations on Westheimer around Westchase area.
    Fortunately I grabbed mine in Richmond.
    Sad to see this.

    Damn, some assholes have no shame.

    I'm glad I'm not in a position where I feel like I should be stealing toys. Garbage humans.

    That MP, even if I don't like the movie bots is very cool.

    On a side note, this thread is to help each other with the toy hunting. If you find something cool or worth mentioning, please indicate "where" and "when". :)

    here's a strange sighting. I guess someone ordered it online and didnt want it. or its overstock from a warehouse. either way still on sale, at full price. 5 yrs old. at Houston far west target.

    sighted these model kits at B & N.. bumblebee looks really cool. but that $50 price tag is too hefty for me. maybe when he goes on sale. thundercracker was on sale for roughly $35.

    if anybody is still looking, they also carry the card game starter packs. this is the first time I've seen the devastator pack..
