    Interesting. I saw a couple Magnus' at Target this weekend and there were like 10 Shockwaves. No Astros though.

    Hm, they're probably all wave 1 cases then. It's hard to tell with Shockwave since he's been shelfwarming pretty much everywhere. That's a shame, it'd be nice to get Astrotrain with the current Target sale. I didn't buy anything during buy 2 get 1 free as there was nothing I needed at the time.

    I have not. Of course, the only place I see Battlemasters at are Targets, so the search is limited as is.

    I have not seen the new targetmasters or battle masters at retail either. I ordered mine from BBTS. those final waves can be tough to find sometimes.

    royal oaks Walmart has cyberverse 1-step jazz in the Christmas bins.

    stopped by far west target today at lunch. nothing new really. they did have one SS BB Optimus Prime. also one siege rainmaker 3-pack..

    I also checked a couple of dollar trees for the small bagged figures. no luck.

    Wasn't expecting to find enough for their current promotion, but I found Apeface, Direct-Hit/Powerpunch and Ratbat/Frenzy at Target in Cedar Hill. They put out a lot of old Siege stock, but some new. One Spinister and one Impactor still there. I got the only Apeface, but they also had a Hound, Ultra Magnus, Starscream and Thundercracker. No Rung or his Targetmaster, no Rainmakers.

    Oddly enough, found a stack Generations Selects Ricochet at a Houston Taylor Target fie $14.01. Haven’t seen this news yet, sorry if it’s been posted somewhere.

    I’m staying a couple days in Irving Texas and today is my last day here.
    Is there a good toy collectible place around here?

    In Irving? Not so much. Just west on 183 is retro madness. There is dallas Vintage toys over in north east dallas. The music city mall in Lewisville has a collectible vintage store but I don’t remember the name of it.

    Picked up a lone Apeface at Far West Target. Didn't find anything else new. The BB Op and Rainmaker 3p is still there. There's also a SS Op w/ trailer and that SS red bulldozer guy and maybe a few other hodgepodge that I'm forgetting.

    Weatherford Target had two Crosshairs and three Apefaces last night, but no Spinister. Still a couple battle damaged ROTF Megatron.

    The Walmart up South Main had a measly two voyager Siege Megatrons and nothing else but those $3 figures.

    Hey guys. Not a sighting but I just wanted to share I’ll be setting up at the special North Texas Toy show tomorrow and I’ll be bringing a ton of Transformers. Did a huge down sizing recently to make room for a new little one in the house. I have a a link to my sales thread in my sig if you wanna peak at what I’m bringing to the show. I’ll have more items that aren’t listed also appearing.

    I'm assuming he's talking about northdallastoyshow.wixsite.com cause they have a special holiday show tomorrow

    Unrelated, I found spinister and crosshairs at the target on 5301 N Garland Ave, Garland, TX 75040
    I sadly had to leave without spinister

    If you guys see 2007 Megs or Mixmaster in DFW let me know. Tyler is too far for me but it’s promising.

    I found SS #53 mixmaster & #54 megatron at my local Walmart (royal oaks) today. 2 cases worth, which equaled 2 of each. I bought one mixmaster, the other was heavily scratched on the mixer. left both megatrons. got mine from Amazon.
