    There is a ton of Leader Jetfires at Sterling TRU.

    ALSO, Has anyone seen the Stinger Flip & change? I've decided I sort of want one, but I've heard they're kind of rare and only appear at Target even though they have "walmart exclusive" on them. Is this true?

    Wow...all the prowls were gone? That's crazy.

    As an aside...today was the first time I saw the new Autobot MP packaging, and I don't like it. It looks too much like the regular releases, whereas the Decepticon MP packaging's purple allows it to stand apart from the rest.

    Also, there's been renewed discussion of a Central VA meet-up. Hit the link in my signature to discuss.

    I saw a bunch at various NoVA Walmarts, but haven't seen any in the last couple weeks. I bought four of them trying to find one that transformed correctly - there are major QC problems with that guy.

    On a whim I stopped by Sterling Walmart and found one. And you're right, he has a terrible time sticking together. I dumped a bunch of pledge into his inner mechanism and now he holds together much much better. Now for a custom paint job! :D

    I'm not sure they were gone. I was in and out pretty quick. I may have just overlooked them. I'm probably going to make another visit later in the week.

    Thanks for letting me know, at least they're in VA then. The only K-Mart near me didn't have any when I checked a couple of weeks ago so I wasn't sure if I missed them. I want to see it in person before I buy one but not sure I'll get the chance since K-Marts don't seem real organized.

    Went to Lynnhaven Toys R Us and picked up the movie Bumblebee two pack with the little legends guy, and was totally surprised to find a couple of Slogs there! Picked one up. There is still one left as of half an hour ago. The also had Masterpiece Prowl and Sunstorm there.

    Lynnhaven TRU: 1 AOE slog, Jetfire, 2 MP Prowls and multiple Sunstorms

    Red mill target: 3 Tankor, 2 Rattrap

    Nimmo Walmart: everyone in the Windblade wave except Windblade, a couple Rattrap and Tankor. Saw Skybyte and Slog, there was a bunch of voyagers but didn't see what else they had.

    I was at the Falls Church/Seven Corners TRU around 2pm today and picked up a Windblade and a Jetfire. One more of her (and the rest of her wave was present), and two more Jetfires. Also, I saw four or five Optimus and Grimlock evolution sets.
