Right, so since the Energon & Alternators thread got so big and isn't quite as relevant now, I decided to just move the Cybertron sightings into their own thread and start a separate Alternators thread.

Let's also remember the significance of these threads. It would be particularly helpful if people would state the city and state where they find the figures they're bragging about. Let's also try and keep the discussions about the figures to a minimum since we do have an entire forum here where you can start threads just for that purpose.

thanks,
Sir Auros

Cybertron in NY.

Found a good chunk of them at the Toys R Us in Glens Falls NY.
 

The bunnies, they give me knowledge it is neat.

Cybertron in Piscataway, NJ...or at least, there was. I went to TRU last night and saw only two Cybertron figures in the midst of a lot of Energon stuff. So, I picked up Vector Prime and Crumplezone.

Also found an Alternator Shockblast, which is the first time I've ever seen the figure in this area.
 


Thanks, Zeeks! Great job!

Got Hotshot and Shockblast last night.

Almost didn't get Shockers because some guy managed to pick him up right before me. What really pissed me off was that on the way, my train was trapped in the tunnel for a while, and when I was going to switch trains, I got stuck behind a whole herd of stupid cattle, so I missed the train I was switching to, and had to wait for the next one. So, I figured I'd look around to see if there was any other transformers display. There wasn't, but when I got back around to the display, I noticed his girlfriend put him back on the shelf, along with Wheeljack. I almost picked up wheeljack, but decided not to at the last minute, since I had Grimlock and didn't really want Wheeljack.

EDIT: Couldn't find Scourge or Decepticharge.

I just found pretty much all of the Cybertron stuff in a Toys R Us in Beavercreek, Ohio. I only picked up Thundercracker, though.

Found some Cybertron toys here in Springfield, VA. Oddly, the only place I've ever seen them at in the area is K-Mart.

From the selection there was Dirtboss, Hotshot, that bulldozer, and Thundercracker. I decided to pick up Thundercracker for the hell of it. He's okay but not "$10-okay".

Cybertron Scattershot, Landmine, Dirt Boss, Crumplezone, Vector Prime, Jetfire, Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Starscream are at the Ross Park Mall Toys R Us off McKnight Road in north Pittsburgh. Man, that was probably the most informative sentence I've written in a while...

Anybody seen LoC figures yet? I can't afford the big ones...
 

Flec's selling a lot of RID, Armada, and Energon, and a few G1 toys. 'S all I'm sayin'.

Santa Rosa TRU has all cybertron toys including like 10 screamers, megs, and prime each. Insane, they are all in good condition too unlike most stores where the boxes are damaged. I personally bought 3 of each.

Freakin' huge Strascream-Really cool. Ridiculously huge, but I definitely would have loved this guy as a kid! Don't think I've been this happy about a tf I've purchased in a while.

Crumplezone-All right. Not the best, but by far not the worst. While the sound wasn't offensive, I figured it would get on my nerves eventually, so I removed the batteries.

Scourge-Cool in both modes. Like the transformation sound effect, but I kept hitting the button while transforming him, and that screaming dragon sound just had to go, so I took the batteries out of him, too.

We went to the local Walmart tonight to get some empty boxes for our move on Friday and to my shock and amazement there were two Cybetron boxes on a pallet. One was labelled Supreme class and the other Leader, so I found a lady working in the toy department and asked if she could open the Leader box so I could buy one of the figures inside. She got as far as opening it when she realized that she couldn't let me buy any because the toy department manager hadn't made space on the shelves for the figures yet (they haven't gotten new Transformers toys of any line since Christmas and have TONS of gestalt parts).

We went around getting some good-sized boxes and I finally said, "You know what, we're only going to be here for a few more days, so what if I get banned from this Walmart?" I decided to ask another woman who seemed to be a manager in the housewares department we were in if she knew if there was a way I could buy the figure anyway. She called the night manager and told me he'd meet me over by the toy section. I caught up with him a minute or two later and he pulled the Optimus Prime out of the box and let me have it. I then saw him chuck the Megatron box on top of one of the toy shelves.

I saw the Cybertron Optimus Prime's price bracket sticker on the shelf at the Walmart in Benton.

No toy itself, though...

TRU in Daly City Colma, Ca pretty much has all Cybertron toys now including 15 plus Starscreams and about 6 megs. So anyone in the bay area, thats the spot to go.

Cybertron sightings in Finland.

No info about Greece, but they *should* be out by now...
 

Few stuff in the UK to trade/sell. Measly sales thread.

I saw a bunch of basics and deluxes. A jetfire or two, one Megs and one Prime at the walmart near my parents'. I picked up Hardtop and the Minicons.

Hardtop is cool. Minicons a slight disappointment (Six Speed's head won't stay up, Jolt is about what I expected, and Reverb is cool).

EDIT: Think the town was Avon, MA, but don't quote me.

I found the new toys at my local Wal-Mart (in the middle of upper northwestern nowhere, Oregon). Not a big selection (there were hardly any toys there, surprisingly; most likely crowded out by the swarm of Power Rangers SPD toys they insist on having up on there), but I DID find Optimus and Megs. I got Megs, and was a bit disappointed with him, until I saw what he could do with Leobreaker. Now I'm going to keep him, saving up the money I usually use to buy Yugioh cards for transformers. I just hope they bring in some of the Jungle Planet ones...
