    Leader Jetfire, Devastator, and all manner of RPMs (both the hot wheel size and the pop-up type) at the Target on Montfort and LBJ in Dallas.

    is it that hard to find jet fire? I sees jetfire every week at my local TRU, target or Wallmart. I found jolt but not icecream truck at my local target.

    If possible can you indicate where your at in TX or what target/wal-mart/TRU location you found soemthing at as this just could help others in your area know where you found something if they are looking for that item as well....

    I know most of us on here have benefited from people in our areas reporting sightings and letting us know which location they found stuff at......:thumb

    Speaking of, Texas is HUGE. Would it be againt the rules to have separate sightings threads, for each region? IE: Central Texas (Austin, San Antonio, Waco, Hill Country, etc) for one thread, DFW and North area in another thread, West Texas (El Paso, Panhandle, etc) in another, South Texas and East Texas (Houston general area) or something like that, all in their own threads?

    Or is the forum's rule, one sighting thread per state?

    Personally, I prefer one thread for Texas Transformers sightings. HissTank.com has 3 separate Texas Sightings threads and it is kind of annoying having 3 separate threads to check out for sightings. Yes, Texas is huge, but its easier to check one thread to see what is showing up in the state.

    Yea, I agree us Texans need to stick together! For anyone down in the Pasadena area, the Super Wal-mart has like 5 Leader Jetfires and a lot of shelfwarmers. Also, TRU on Fairmont has all of the new RPM's.

    The Jetfire sighting that I posted was the first one I have seen in the wild ever.

    Haven't seen Long Haul, or any of the new Deluxes (Blazemaster, Dead End, Ice Cream Twins, Jolt) either, but I think Megaprime said he managed to find and grab some (at a Target near my house, no less. Poacher! :)  ) My rule of thumb has been to start looking for something in earnest 1 or 2 weeks after the San Antonio sightings, but these Deluxes have been slow to arrive. Most of the pegs are clogged with Wheelie and Chromia.

    I was just in the area that morning for my son's indoor soccer game and stopped by that Target. I was really surprised that I found one. The packages were not in the best shape so I let my son have Twins and Jolt. Jolt is ok but the twins are really cool.

    I have been looking and calling and nothing new since then. Might go at lunch today. Thursdays are usually good days to go look for new stuff.

    On another note I got tired of waiting on BBTS to get the Aerial Team Appendage Add-On Kit and the Classics D.I.A. Powered Commander Trailer Set (Japanese Limited Version) and ordered from Robotkingdom and they shipped last night. I have the other two Commander Trailers and can't wait for the third.

    Waco is having a drought for anything new. Though, I did see the Mudflaps with the "Mudflap" license plates. Outside of that nothing new. Really, want Jetfire.

    So Targets "Find it at a store" is a bunch of crap. It says every Target in my area has Long Haul all week and I have checked just about every day in stores and they don't have it. Really chaps my ass!

    I tried to get one coordinated a while back. I'm willing to try again.

    How many are there on these boards?

    Here is the the thing on "check availability in stores" online. (Not sure if you guys know this) If the toy has the same DPCI number, like the voyagers, then it will say they are all in stock. Hope Long Haul comes to Texas soon!
