    Has anyone ever seen the wave 2 deluxes in stores? I’ve gotten three of them from online sources, but never seen one in a store.

    Fitchburg Target has two Doublecrossers and two Slitherfangs for anyone looking to beef up their ramp collection.

    Also a lone Siege Sixgun.

    They did! I believe just a Springer and 1-2 Starscreams. I actually picked up an Astrotrain ($18) and Springer ($13) there a couple of weeks ago.

    Yep! I've been a few times, and they can be pretty hit or miss, but sometimes you'll luck out. There's one on the west side, and one on the east side, although I've never been to the latter.

    You’re in luck if you can get out to the West Madison Ross, I just got back from there and they had a Siege Astrotrain for $18.

    Also had an Ultra Magnus ($18), Springer ($13), and a Soundwave! And three of the Cyberverse Hot Rod/Sharkticon set. I picked up the last Siege Starscream.

    Update at 8 PM: I went back for the Soundwave but someone must have beaten me to the punch, cause he is gone.

    Oh man, even though I was just there on Thursday night, hearing that they had Ultra Magnus is super tempting - might have to stop by tomorrow!

    Edit 10/17 12PM: Magnus secured! They still have the Siege Astrotrain, Springer, and Starscream.

    Does wave 2 ER exist?

    Hilldale and West Target haven't gotten anything new for deluxes since the beginning of the year.

    Right!? I've checked the Monona Walmart, West Walmart, West Target, and Fitchburg Target all last weekend and all of them again yesterday, and still nothing.

    I got all them online at two different stores on a very chaotic preordering day, but even with preorders, I got three of them three weeks ago and I’m still waiting for Smokescreen.

    I’ve used online preorders more this year than ever before; so much that I have to use a spreadsheet to keep track of them all, and this year I’ve seen... checking... seventeen of those figures get their release dates get pushed back, and none of the delayed figures have hit their delayed dates yet. It’s like they don’t actually have any idea when those will ship.

    Appleton Ross had three each of Springer and Starscream for $12.99. Nothing else that I saw.

    Just picked up all of wave 2 deluxe except the micromaster at Target West.

    Re-preordered the Amazon 2 packs for iron hide and ratchet. And pre-ordered sunstreaker and trailbreaker. Back in on ER

    Looking for bluestreak, but walgreens...
