If you have a "5 Below" discount store near you, I suggest you check them out. I found RTS Legends Optimus, Megatron, Starscream, Gold Bumblebee, and Trailcutter there, all at $3 a pop.

They also have Lego Minifigures. And a lot of candy.

Yeah 2 of these store opened up by me and those figures were all over the toy pegs, Prowl is also available as much as the others.

Tomorrow I have to make a stop at Hobby Lobby, and with one of these on the way, I'm totally making a stop.

Thanks for the heads up.

Well, I grabbed Meggy for the "we may never get this again" factor, Bee because YAY GOLDBUG HOMAGE, and Trailcutter because... uh... he was only $3. I didn't really find myself needing another Prime or Starscream, though.

Good toys though.

And I bought Trailcutter because its Trailbreaker! The guy who never had an actual toy since his original in 1984 (not counting homages who aren't really him).
It all began in '84. Kept on rollin' in '85. The pieces were in place in '86, and it came to an end in '87. But now it comes, and here we go. Transformers is here again. Nothing's gonna stop it 'cause it's 1988!

I have one about 50 minutes from me. Perhaps I'll stop there this Sunday.

I heard people are finding the gray helmet Starscreams occasionally too.

Closest one is about an hour and a half away. That a bit too far for something that might be there.

And I already found all the Legends up Canada-way, so I don't really need more of them. Looks like an interesting store though.

Same here! I always thought it was a camping supply store of some kind...

Does this place carry anything besides the Legends?

Ollie's is getting these in as well. $1.99 each.

The one I went to only had 3 Gold Bumblebees on the pegs, so they were really picked over.

it might be time to hit the Big Lots/Odd Lots, then... i figure that'd be the logical next step for these releases.

Yes some reports on TFW2005 say they would find 1 or 2 gray helmeted ones for every 10 to 15 black helmet ones.

Went to the five below ten minutes from my house on the way to class and left with a full wave. I'm not the biggest legenfs fans, but these have all been pleasant surprises

Mmm, triple bypass.

Oh, and a pile of Legends too. They were on display at the registers, in case anyone doesn't see them in the toy section.
