Use this thread to post what you find, and where! Let your fellow collectors know what's up. Minor local discussion is ok, but try to keep it focused on the toys and finding them locally.

Got a bunch of Bandai boxes in last night. Logically I knew it wasn't the 'Cats, but got excited anyway. Turned out to be Power Rangers.

Man if only the Power Rangers Samurai stuff wasn't so compromised compared to the Japanese Shinkenger versions. Now the figures I can understand, it's a viable format for Bandai that kids are now used to, but the Megazord? Damn Bandai Japan Shinken Oh KILLS Samurai Megazord DX. There is no comparison, the latter is over simplified.

I am from around southwestern Va near VT. Checked at local walmart with no sign last night and checked today at Target, asked the stockboy who was in the process of clearing shelf space, and he said he had no idea that they had just put up a bunch of new action figures but no Cats yet. Will be keeping an eye out!

Nothing new yet, but I did notice that a lot of figures are on clearance on some tables in front of the toys. Hopefully this is a sign of a restock soon.

I live in the northern part of the state and have yet to find anything - will post when I do. However, I am excited because I have a box full of stuff I ordered on Amazon arriving tomorrow! I'm collecting the Classics and 4" series.

I got the Classics Tygra, the 4" Lion-O, Tygra and Mum-Ra and the deluxe 4" Lion-O and Grune at the Woodbridge TRU. The had a few things left I would have got the vehicles that came with figure but they didn't have the Thundertank. They also didn't have the Classics Lion-O, They did hAve the role-play Sword of Omens. I ended up spending nearly $80. I'm not sure how the classic Tygra is going to look next to the MOTU stuff, they seem bigger slightly, although they should look good next to my vintage Bravestarr collection.

Its a day late but Sterling TRU was stocked yesterday. When I got there around 5pm they had everything released thus far except Classics Lion-O. I picked up 4" Cheetara, Wiley Kit and Kat and Deluxe Grune and Mumm-ra. After I left they still had:
A bunch of Omen Sword, 2 Classics Tygras, 1 each of the 2011 style 6", a few 4" Lion-Os, Tygras, Mumm-ras (who is easily going to be the peg warmer of this first wave), and a single Panthro. All vehicles and deluxes (minus Grune who I took the last of) were also there in multiples.

If you haven't found them, don't stress out - these will saturate quickly I feel. Apparently they went all day essentially untouched.

Got all the 4" single carded figures today at a Richmond TRU. I went to all 3 area TRUs today (long day), here is the breakdown:

West End: 1 Box each of Classics and 6 inch figures. Left all.

Southside/Midlo: They have 2 boxes of everything and I mean everything, 4, 6, and classic size figures, deluxe figures, and every type of vehicle...however they are not putting anything out until Sunday morning for an end cap display. Get there early!!!

Colonial Heights: This is were I got my 4" figures. They had 2 cases of 4", but after I left they only had the male figures left except Panthro. But they had a huge end cap, with everything I listed (all sizes and vehicles) above at the SouthSide location.

That is my report for now for TRU. I know a few other things, but I only want to help collectors with things that are not coming out yet (get away scalpers and trollers!!). Please PM me if you want to know my other store reports.

Thanks and Happy Hunting!!!

I read the plan-o-grams for 3 different WalMarts today and it looks as if the ThunderCat area is going to be a nice size with plenty of pegs each each size and item.

The Sterling TRU has been picked over since a few days ago. Only a few Mumm-ra and Lion-O 4inchers left plus a few deluxes and Thundertanks. The only restocking of any kind appeared to be the Classics line - They had 3 Tygras and 1 Lion-O, which I would have bought but the paint on the face was all messed up. Its funny, in a not funny sort of way, that the most expensive "collectors" line has the most issues I've seen. Its like they aren't letting them dry before they package them up or something.

3x Mumm-Ra
2x Tygra
1x Panthro
1x Cheetara
1X Wiley Kit

My store got the Tower of Omens, kind of underwhelmed. It would be a decent background piece, but why not make Cat' s Lair instead? One of the little vehicles actually kind on looks like it.

The one vehicle was made in tribute to the old Cat's Lair

Found the new 6" Classic Lion-O and Mumm Ra at Target in Fair Lakes, VA.

I had no idea these were going to be released so soon.
