Washington State: Puget Sound area sighting report: as of 6/5/08:
Port Angeles Wal-Mart: Lugnut, Starscream, Bulkhead, Voy Megs and 2 pack
Sequim Wal-Mart: Starscream, Bulkhead, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Prowl, Cyb Prime, Lockdown, Blackarachnia
Lakewood Wal-Mart: Voy Megs, Starscream, Lugnut, Bulkhead, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Prowl, Blackarachnia, Lockdown, Cyb Prime, Blackarachnia.

Do take note the deluxes seem to be disappearing fast, as I had to get a pair of each from 2 diff wal-marts.

I checked 2 TRU, one Fred Meyer and 2 Targets and only Wal-Mart had any of the Animated toys.

They're out in Harahan LA. My local Walmart had Blackarachnia, Bulkhead,
Bumblebee, Prowl, OP. , Ratchet, Megatron, Lockdown, and Starscream.
However, most sold within the first hour of hitting shelves, all that remain are
the Voyagers. I managed to get the last Ratchet.

These things need to hit PA. I'm salivating. I love the new TF animated, best series in a long time.

I made the rounds to Wall-Mart and TRU today. So far only Wave 1 is out still, no signs of BlackArachnia, Ratchet, Lugnut or Dinobot yet.

I went to four walmarts today whilst running other errands, and they all apparently put the toys out today.

Give it a couple of days. You'll see saturation shortly.

Over here in Ohio, I'm still waiting to find those Wal-Mart exclusive Cybertron repaints (like Big Daddy) and I just discovered my very first Leader-Class Premium yesterday evening (I at first wrote "earlier this evening", but I just realized it's almost 1 AM, ha).

I figure that if I have to wait a little while to see Animated like I'm expecting to, that'll be alright, because if they were to show up at this very moment I couldn't really do too much about it; I have enough to afford one Deluxe.

Let's say I do have the fortune of finding some, say, later today (a normal person might say "tomorrow"). I'm going to try and start deciding now whether I'll first go after Lockdown, or Prowl. I really don't care for any of the other First Wave Deluxes.

I found the Optimus/Megatron two pack with a DVD today at a Chichester, PA Wal-Mart! I'll post pics in the toy forum later tonight. They only had two of those and no single carded yet.

I got me the boxed megatron and prime. Otherwise the Walmarts I've been to have like 5,035,493,503,503 ratchets, and some of the spider chick, and thats about it.

Gonna go to another mart tonight. Trying to get my filthy hands on that awesome starscream and bulkhead.

Went to Walmart on Saturday. No sign of them yet. Hopefully they'll have them at TRU next weekend. I'd like to snag the Prime vs Megs exclusive, Lockdown, and Jazz (when that wave comes out). Probably going to wait and see if they do a samurai Prowl.

Voyager Bulkhead, Cybertron-mode Megatron, Starscream, and Optimus Prime Vs. Megatron 2-pack out in Bentonville AR Wal-Mart.....and wow, am I disappointed. Considering the Bulkhead, as I actually like it better than the Leader-class, but I was really looking forward to Cybertron Megatron....until I beheld the mass of kibble plainly visible on the lower front.

Gonna hit the two Rogers ones later this week, but I'm not sure I'll really want anything until Ultra Magnus and Samurai Sidecar Prowl.

The Voyager Megatron is a million times less kibbletastic than the deluxe version from the 2 pack. The deluxe Megatron is the only one that has really disappointed me, and I have them all at this point except Bulkhead, I'm waiting for the Leader class version of him.

Agreed wholeheartedly. I will attest that the only obvious robot kibble I could see was the part right up front under the nose.

I think I may end up getting the Voyager Bulkhead after payday...I liked it, but not enough to justify getting it when my ratio of needs to available funds skewed so heavily against me.

Forgive me, but what's kibble?

I got a Voyager Bulkhead, and deluxe Bumblebee, Prowl and Ratchet today.

The bits of a mode that hang off a figure when it's in another one. Really excessive kibble where the robot is essentially hidden inside parts that swing shut over it tends to be called a shellformer.
