One of the Walmarts near me has some pegs full of Wave 1 TR deluxes.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 09:35 PM)

Yeah, never seen a Titans Return Hot Rod

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Or Hot Rod. D=

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Wow, seriously? I don't think I've even seen him here. =(

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 07:50 PM)

Yeah Mindwipe shelfwarmed like crazy in Vancouver.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 February 2017 - 07:36 PM)

My Walmart still has a Rattrap floating around. My frustration is I've seen Hot Rod and Doublecross, but still haven't seen a Highbrow

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 07:02 PM)

I still haven't seen any Wave 3 Deluxes aside from the Triggerhappy I got off eBay.

@  Pennpenn : (18 February 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Fairly sure the Target near my work still has a CW Wheeljack hanging around the Wave 3 TR deluxes. Just wish we'd gotten Wave 2 deluxes...

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:53 PM)

CW deluxes from the later waves clogged the shelves real bad.

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:52 PM)

Correction: TR deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 06:47 PM)

Generations deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

Hm, interesting. Some of the pegs seem to have the correct names when they've been shelfwarming for a while. So like Mindwipe would be on a peg labelled MINDWIPE next to WOLFWIRE, etc.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

It would make less sense to track individual figures when they're ordered by the assortment anyway.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 03:02 PM)

Nope. walmart tends to scan the first UPC of the assortment, then use it for the entire assortment. Actually tracking data makes to much sense.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 02:37 PM)

So hey I bought Triggerhappy from Walmart a few days ago and just notice the receipt said TRIGGERHAPPY on it. Not the assortment name or whatever. Are they using this info to better track character sales or something?

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2017 - 07:13 AM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

Does that even count?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

OH, that one.

@  Pennpenn : (17 February 2017 - 08:39 PM)

The most recent one, I think? I don't think Fort Max or Trypticon even appear in the earlier ones.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:37 PM)

Which one was that?

@  unitremover : (17 February 2017 - 07:16 PM)

They did in the Scioli TF vs GI Joe

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2017 - 05:37 PM)

Have Fortress Maximus and Trypticon ever fought each other before Titans Return?

@  Dekafox : (17 February 2017 - 05:20 PM)

Smart Brain? He's trying to take over the world through weaponized electronic accessories?

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Reminds me of Smart Robin in a good way.

@  Msol : (17 February 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Oh man Triggerhappy is awesome.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:30 AM)

I'm afraid to imagine what was done to it to turn it into bubble tea.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

You must have been feeding it. That's when it turns from sweet tea to bitter mutated chaotic tea.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 11:00 AM)

I didn't know Tea could do that, I thought it just turned into a disgusting drink.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:59 AM)

They also multiply when they get wet. Don't feed them after midnight, either.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:58 AM)

Don't get them wet otherwise you'll end up with a case of brownbelly.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:56 AM)

What about t-shirts made out of tea bags?

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:55 AM)

No, no, it's teens who need putting in airtight containers, tea you can leave anywhere.

@  MEDdMI : (17 February 2017 - 10:53 AM)

Tea is best stored in airtight containers, not china.

@  Rycochet : (17 February 2017 - 10:24 AM)

I thought all the tea was in china.

I would cancel my BBTS preorder but I got a 1.5 box so I could get Cliffjumper. Somehow I suspect that while finding Prime toys in a TRU store will be difficult, finding one somewhat short-packed toy in a refresh case will be next to impossible. I guess if they put him online I could pick him up, but not sure it would be worth it. If I can sell my extra deluxes on Ebay for a decent amount, I can get a better-than retail price:

Deluxe 1.5 case after shipping estimate: 109.49
Sell:
BB 14.99
BB 14.99
SS 16.99
CJ 20.99
Cost of remaining figures: 41.53 = $10.38/figure for 4 deluxes. Better than TRU prices or TRU.com prices if shipping was free, and that's if they even had Cliffy available.

Voyagers aren't quite as attractive but again, I anticipate Bulkhead may be tough to come by:
Voyager case after shipping estimate: 104.49
Prime 25
Prime 25
Cost of remaining figures: 54.49 = $27.25 per figure. TRU price is usually $19.99 and right now Voyagers are on sale for $15 on the website.

They've been out in Toronto a couple of days now. Ironically, your BBTS orders were probably a good idea. I finally went down to my local TRU today, and aside from the Entertainment Pack, all they had were like 10+ bumblebees. All the other deluxes were already gone.

I'm sticking with my pre-orders for now. There's exactly one Toys R Us within regular driving distance of where I live and it's a mini-sized store in one of those shopping mall center things. Not exactly somewhere that's going to have a huge selection of stuff.

That, and I'm short of money at this time, so having it reserved for later gives me the chance to scrape together what I need.

$44 and change, in Canadian dollars for the Entertainment pack. I actually don't recall the deluxe prices, but NightViper is probably right. I had intended to get the Entertainment Pack until I noticed that price. For some reason I thought it'd be cheaper. Maybe it's the DVD that I don't actually want.

Glad for this--I was looking pretty hard at picking up a deluxe 1.5 case from EE. Woulda only had to offload a Starscream and a Cliffjumper...

...yes, all three Bumblebees would stay.

More likely, it's the three kids. They're the anomaly compared to other Entertainment Packs.

So I just ordered my Arcee at TRU.com. HOPEFULLY Starscream will still be in-stock next week before Black Friday...

I'll be keeping my BBTS preorder for Starscream, Bee, Arcee, and CJ, as well...the closest TRU is about 45 minutes away, and since they'll be added to my pile of loot at BBTS, it'll end up being around the same price as TRU.com considering shipping, tax, etc.

Found them at a TRU in Rockaway, NJ yesterday afternoon. Employee said there were 8 on the floor (I only saw 5), nothing in back. Grabbed to Bees, Arcee, and Screamer. No voyagers or entertainment pack. I almost missed them, on a lone pegs amongst the DOTM and Generations figs!

And I must say, Bumblebee is AWESOME.
