The Lone Star State Sighting

Recommended Posts

Hit a lot of stores Friday and Saturday, here's a summary.

 

College Station Walmart - picked up the G1 Robot Heroes figs - all except Jazz/Thundercracker & Prime/Unicron sets. They didn't have the exclusive 5-pack. Had plenty of movie toys: Real Gear, Fast Action Battlers, Deluxes (no Bonecrushers or Swindles), Ironhide/Starscream Voyagers, and Leader Prime.

Bryan Walmart - nothing.

College Station Target - had G1 plushes, Robo-vision Prime, Robot Heroes, Real Gear, Fast Action battlers, exclusives Scouts (Arcee, Hardtop, & Signal Flare), Deluxes including Bonecrusher & Swindle, Voyager Blackout, Ironhide, Ratchet, & Starscream, Leader Prime.

College Station ToysRUs - no 6" Titanium Prime/Megs 2 pack. I really was hoping they'd have the 6" Titanium waves, but nothing. TRU did have the movie Legends figures.

Navasota Walmart - nothing. They did have wave 3 of the Star Wars 30th Anniversary figures.

Lake Conroe Walmart - nothing.

Conroe Target - same selection as the College Station Target from what I recall.

Conroe Walmart - the only place I saw the deluxe Bumblebee and Barricade 2pack at. Had them on an island.

Conroe Hastings - has a Classics Jetfire for $23.99. The box was a bit beat up though.

Conroe KB - had movie deluxes and Legends figures. However, my big score was finally finding a Concept Boba Fett there.

Woodlands Walmart - had plenty of movie toys, including the 3" Titanium Prime, Bumblebee, and Blackout. No Robot Heroes exclusive 5 pack though. Also of note, they had Blob series Marvel Legends Quicksilver, X3 Juggernaut & Jean Grey, and Yellowjacket.

Woodlands Target - plenty of movie toys and Robot Heroes.

Woodlands ToysRUs - no luck with the 6" titaniums here either. Plenty of movie toys from what I saw. Also had both versions of the Prime Battle helmet (one w/ Cullen's voice and one with a generic one).

 

Overall, Targets seem to have the best stock (as well as being the only place I recall spotting Swindle and Bonecrusher at). Walmarts were the best place to get Wreckage at (if Walmart had put there stock out). I didn't see any Leader Megatrons. BTW, I'm focusing on the G1 Robot Heroes and 6" Titaniums (Fallen, Cheeter, and future waves), so if anyone spots them, let me know. I'm not purchasing any movie toys, so if anyone wants me to pick up hard to find ones up for them when I spot them, let me know.

About 6 or so Blackout/Scorponok packs @ TRU I-10/Bunkerhill at the front display. They have Cullen Helmets & Stompin Prime also. 2 Classic Jetfires at the regular TF section. TRU Titanium 6" WWI Prime vs Megs will be in TRU stores around the 15th this month. The only exclusive I have not seen yet is the Walmart Robot Heroes pack...

On my trip up to San Antonio (for the Weird Al Yankovic concert) yesterday, I saw tons of 6" Titanium G1 Rodimus, RID Prime, and WW Starscreams at the Schertz Super Walmart. Bastrop Walmart also has a 6" Titanium WW Starscream. College Station Toys R Us had 1 G1 Rodimus and 2 G1 Soundwave 6" Titaniums on Thursday. No sightings of the Walmart exlcusive Robot Heroes 5 pack yet, although most Walmarts I hit (San Marcos, New Braunfels, & San Antonio) had plenty of the TF movie Bumblebee & Blackout 2 pack.

2-3 days ago, found a leftover Classics Grimlock behind some other stuff at the Target on McDermott in Allen.

Scanner showed price as $0.00

Dude in the area with a scan gun said last price had been $2.48 so when I went up to register that's what they charged.

 

Nice find for a one-off

found some alternators Meister, Ricochet, Rollbar and Skids at the Walmart at 121 and Cheaksparger in Euless. I picked up Meister (they had 2 left after that) and Rollbar (they only had 1 more left.) I think they had about 4 Ricochet and Skids.

College Station Toys R Us had 6 G1 Reissue Soundwaves as of 5:30pm yesterday. I didn't get any since I got him the first time around.

 

Bryan Walmart has 2 Leader Movie Megatrons while College Station Target still has 1 Leader Movie Megatron.

 

Still no sightings of the Walmart exclusive Robot Heroes 5 pack or the TRU exclusive 6" Titanium War Within Prime & Megs 2 pack.

    • No. There's no way. This is pretty much someone's wish fulfillment list. There has to be another April Fool's Day that happens every June 24th that I'm just not aware of. I don't believe this list one bit. Especially since Legacy is supposed to be a one and done. It's a supposedly a filler line to finish off WFC and begin the next series/trilogy. Crasher? Nope. Hasbro is too scared to use the name...or are they? Road Ranger had his name didn't he? I hope it's not from either Mirage mold though and is instead from Dragstrip. It would be so easy to retool that into a Crasher that even has the front of the vehicle point out back behind her. I still don't see this happening though. Shadow Striker? Most likely Cyberverse and not Universe/OTFCC because then we'd also need Roulette. The Cyberverse character is now the G1 version so it makes the most sense. I don't see it happening. Never mind, it will be ROTF Shadow Striker lol. An upscaled SS86 Wheelie done in black and red. Just what everyone wanted right? Well, I want a black and red SS86 Wheelie and I haven't even seen him yet. Hot Rod? What we would all want is a retool of Override as IDW Hot Rod like the MMC figures but what we'll get is a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod instead. We'll get a redeco of SS86 Hot Rod eventually. It's only a matter of time with that one. What's next to add to that list, a retool of Cosmos or even Origin Bumblebee as Path Finder? Why not both? Blue Cosmos (no not the Blue Cosmos from Gundam) and grey Bumblebee. Maybe Smallfoot as a retool of an upcoming RID 2015 Strongarm too? Core Soundblaster? No shit. There's no way they're going to not do that eventually. Core class Dinobots? No way. I'd love it but no way. Needlenose? The one who's always on the votes but never wins? Hasbro is just toying with us with this one. There's no way they're going to make one now. They want to see the fans cry about it too much now. And he's downgraded from voyage to deluxe to pour more salt on the wounds. Hot Shot? Armada Hot Shot? There's nothing saying it's going to be Armada Hot Shot. When it's been an alternate universe character they always put that in its name. This could be Armada HS, Energon HS, Cybertron HS, RID 2001 HS, Animated HS. So which one is it? It's none of them because it's not happening. Deluxe Junkions with a number denoting future retools and redecos? What so a reissue of the RTS mold? The CW mold? They already made a voyager Junkion from Wreck Gar. I don't see why they'd need to do a deluxe at this point. Maybe for Detritus or Nancy? It just doesn't make sense. Tarn? Yeah no. It just doesn't seem like Hasbro want's to touch the DJD. Although we are getting a nice Jhiaxus though. But no. Just no. Leo Prime? Again, this whole list just sounds like wish fulfillment. There's no way. And then what? We get white, black and purple redecos? Thundertron, Alpha Trizer and GO Prime? Hasbro don't make such deep cuts for redecos and retools. Granted they've started to go pretty deep lately but not Leo Prime redeco deep. Prime Skyquake..............actually, I don't see why not with this one. But they'll probably use either Seeker mold or Jhiaxus for it though. Don't expect the beefcake he was. Although I would like him, Dreadwing and Megaplex who don't break. Not that mine are broken...that I know of... Oh wait. I brushed over the fact that it says leader and not voyager. No way it's happening now. I just completely assumed it was voyager as it made the most sense. For a leader Skyquake it would need to be Euro G1 for Hasbro to most likely do it, not Prime. Armada Megatron? I don't see why not with him either. New mold and all. This one I believe fully. Galvatron and Megazarak redecos too this time. Most of these figures are just too on point for what fans what for Hasbro to do them.  I would love to be wrong though. Well, other than Soundblaster as that's bound to happen sooner rather than later. I really hope I'm wrong. I want some of these so much. Watch I'm wrong on everything but that means no Armada Megatron as I think that one is real.
    • Transformers Velocitron is not even shipping yet, and JTPrime17 flies in with newly leaked listings offering up many spoilers for what is coming our way in 2023. First off, IF you liked what's going on with Velocitron there is Wave 2 coming too. Next, Legacy has lots more in store next year with some new nods to Cybertron, Prime, G1, and Aw yeah, Armada fans will be getting their fix with at least one leader exposed.

    • Toyhax really surprised us with the Conversion Set to change Siege Sideswipe to G2 Go-Bot Optimus Prime.  
    • Just in from In Demand Toys are a couple of images of the First Look at Transformers Legacy Buzzworthy Bumblebee Creatures Collide 4 Pack. This is the second Collide Boxed set with Autobot Goldbug, Ransack, Sky Wasp, and Predacon Scorponok. What has been leaked for some time, we've seen most of these figures but here we get the full look at the packaging and proper names. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
    • Target's Summer Geek-Out dropped their new Transformers X Tonka Mash-Up set, the "Tonkanator", with official images and details. The G2 Yellow Devastator is rebranded as a Tonka team with logos and all at a price of $104.99 USD. What should be immediately obvious is Hasbro owns both of the brands, so it is an interesting idea that may or may not resonate with fans. Click Image to Read the Full News Story Now
