    Any reason why you want to get him form Walmart? He's available at TRU.com right now. (At least I could add him to cart and go to checkout, didn't try to pay for him). Additionally, according to the site he's available for Store Pickup from the Kingstowne store, so they may have some stock there. Not sure how accurate that is, though.

    Anyone still needing Protectobots limbs, I saw everyone at the Pembroke Target this afternoon. Was hoping to find Hot Spot but maybe this coming week. Was going to check Lynnhaven TRU today but they were busy and I'm sure he was gone already since he was spotted Friday afternoon.

    I have $160.00 dollars saved on a shopping card and I could also use my 10% discount which can save me even more in the long run.I'm also not a fan of tru's wait til it's available in stores to buy online method.

    I'll have an extra Devastator I'd part with at MSRP (in NoVA) if someone still needs one.

    Actually, I didn't get anything there last night. My goal was some ethernet cable. Being consistently disappointed in that store's TF section is just a side habit. I almost don't look there anymore. So seeing a new figure like Cyclonus was a pleasant surprise but neither him or Hot Spot are on my radar.

    There's still hope! Unless someone else already grabbed it. Sigh.

    RadimusPrime reporting from Hampton Roads, VA. Brand new to the forum. Reddit brought me.

    I've been collecting Transformers for a long time. Combiner Wars is my focus right now and since I'm constantly checking local stores for Bots and Cons, I thought I should post what figures I come across in my travels to try and help my fellow collectors.

    BTW - If you've seen Quickslinger and Brake-Neck in stores around Hampton Roads in the last few weeks, those are probably from the ten pairs I ordered online and returned to stores. Not interested in profit, just paying it forward to other lovers of Transformers.

    Glad I found this place. It's great to be part of this community and I appreciate all your work here. Thanks!

    As of noon 7/15:
    VA BCH First Colonial Target - crushed boxes 1 each of Megatron G1 and Armada, Silverbolt, Optimus, Off-road, Dead End, Rid Warrior Sideswipe, Rid Mega Optimus, AoE assortment.

    VA BCH Phoenix Drive Walmart - both Megatrons, Optimus, Silverbolt, Off-road, Breakdown, Dead End, Rid Warrior Drift, Assortment

    VA BCH Lynnhaven TRU - Cyclonus, Hot Spot, Optimus, Silverbolt, Armada Megatron, Offroad, Dead End, Breakdown, Non-comic Dragstrip, Legends Skywarp, Legends Thundercracker, Windcharger, Rid Warrior Optimus, Bumblebee, Jazz, Sideswipe, Drift, Giant Bumblebee

    I'll post later with other stops today.

    Yeah, that's the store. I think one time years ago you let the board know Gen Wheeljack, Thundercracker and Warpath were there and I left instantly to get them. I think that was the last time I've ever been excited about any new Transformers there. Can't remember if that was before or after DOTM, but years ago it was a decent place to find stuff.

    I didn't see it, only the lone Cyclonus so you may be out of luck unless someone hid it.

    It was before dark of the moon was being released on media format that much I do remember. too bad they never released deluxe leadfoot though. I really wanted him.
