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.

Wow...156 views in the thread and I'm the only one posting. Well kids, sorry to say that I'm not going to update this thread on any sightings until A) There is more of a community in this thread or B) The toys are saturating the hell out of the local market.

I'm doing this because since I know these toys are hot right now and they are SLOWLY trickling out into retail, these are the type of conditions that scalpers LOVE. I fear that most of these views then are from scalpers looking to make a jump on a sighting and a quick buck.

Seeing as how I want to help get these toys into collectors (and more importantly kids) hands, when I start seeing product on shelves, I'm more than likely going to post something like "Figures spotted, PM for store & location."

That way if you're not signed up, you're shit out of luck. Sorry to those that are honest collector lurkers...but that's the way the game is played now days.

I'll be keeping my eyes open too, but I haven't seen anything yet.

Found wave 1 everything at the TRU in Olympia this morning. I picked up the 4" versions of Lion-O, Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, Wilykat, Wilykit, and Lion-O with the Thunderracer. What remains are the 8" figures (classics & modern), deluxe 4" figures, Tygra & Slythe with their vehicles, the Thundertank, Sword of Omens, and 4" Lion-O, Tygra, & Mumm-Ra.

If the pattern holds true, the Tacoma TRU should get all of that this coming Wednesday.

Nothing at the Lynnwood TRU as of today. If they're hitting down south though (like everything seems to at first) it shouldn't be long until they're hitting the Seattle area then.

Tacoma TRU has everything in stock and twice as much as Olympia did.

On the other hand, the Puyallup TRU has yet to receive any.

Still nothing in the Lynnwood area. But my order from tru.com should be at my door on Saturday, so that's something.

Northgate TRU has a little bit of everything...except for the Classics.
On a side note, I knew the smaller Sword of Omens was going to be small, but I didn't know it was going to be THAT small!!

Tukwila TRU has an end display of the new Thundercats stuff. No classics though.

Went to Olympia TRU again today. They are pretty well picked over and only had Lion-O and Mumm-Ra in the 4" format, no Grunes, and only classic Tygra in the larger figures.

Found a literal handful of figures at the Lacey Kmart this morning. They had 4" Lion-O, Tygra, Mumm-Ra and 6" modern Lion-O. They were just sitting on a shelf and didn't seem to have a home in the reset toy aisles.

They've showed up at the Lynnwood TRU. Nothing at the Lynnwood Target or Walmart though.

Still a big roll of nothing at the Lynnwood Walmart. Everett Walmart on the other hand has pretty much everything.

they had a little bit of everything at Covington Walmart. I stashed a Classics Lion-O since it's a little hard to find right now. PM for location, or look around shouldn't be too hard to locate.

The south Federal Way Walmart has about three of the Tygus/Tiger Flier after I bought one. Is that the last toy coming out for the line other than Mumm-Ra's coffin car thing?
