He's samurai themed? Anyway, I meant "samurai themed" in the Bludgeon's Pretender shell sense.

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

I don't know if any other regions are having this issue, but I can say that southwestern PA has been a nightmare for any new product. No Prime, no FE, not even wave 5 of the MechTech. I've poked around on the sightings, but nothing near me. Just RotF eyesores and empty pegs as far as the eyes can see Anyone else feeling the boredom/frustration?

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

I got my wave 1 Prime deluxes (Soundwave and Wheeljack) weeks ago at the Mt. Nebo store. I called beforehand and they pulled the figures I asked, and held them at electronics.

(We're in the same area)

The Century III Mall Walmart kind of sucks though, very disappointing.

Wave 5 of the DotM deluxes (Air Raid, Armor Topsin, Dark Steel) has been out here and there and has hit partial saturation. Kohl's and Target in particular have gotten them in in decent numbers.

Prime First Edition was canceled in the US and Toys'R'Us is more than likely not going to stock any more of the first wave of deluxes which they had over the holiday.

Prime RiD is coming shortly...Target stores have received stock, Walmarts have received stock and put some of it out, and Toys'R'Us stores have been receiving stock and putting it out since a couple of weeks ago.

I don't read TFW2005 much anymore but one section I like there is the sightings by state. You might be able to get a lead on figures in your area or even make some friends who will pick them up for you or send you a text if they see something you want.

Just did a store run around here.

TRU - 2 RiD Bumblebee, 3 RiD Voyager Optimus, 2-pegs full of Cyberverse Prime BB and Cliffjumper+1 Cyb Ratchet and 1 Cyb Vehicon, and LOTS of Bot Shots.

Target - One case of Prime Cyberverse.

Walmart - nothin yet.


ZacWilliam, yeah, the Pre-Easter season reset will likely bring these to saturation... Just wait a couple weeks.

I used to run the Sightings Forum here and my opinion is that both are valuable. Sightings by State for the reasons you state, and sightings by figure give a better idea of which store chains to check and what level of saturation the figures have hit. If you collect for a while you get a sense of people in your area anyway.

On tfw there is a thread where you can search target stores and see if its in stock.

Also note that Walmart has started their store inventory this week, so depending on store/region, they might not be putting out new product for another week or two. To make inventory easier, managers (when I worked there) were often told NOT to put out extra product unless absolutely necessary (a case is easier to count than 12 pegged figures)
