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).

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.
