Checked my local Target, and the Super Target as well last night, found Animated figures in only the Super Target. Sadly no Voyager Prime. Hard to say if I missed the figure or if they just never had one, all the other culprits were there, so they may have just not gotten in Prime yet.

I just found Prime after a week of hunting at Target, and now I have to go back? As much as I'd love to have these figures, I wish they hadn't come out so soon.

Ow.

I found mine after a week of searching at a Super Target in Grand Prairie, Texas. He's quickly becoming one of my favorites.

I can confirm Jazz being out in the wild. I saw him and I wasn't impressed. His plastic looked to be the same tacky kind as Bumblebee. Shame.

I'm pissed that I couldn't find Soundwave or Sla... Snarl.

I raided a Target on my way to work today. All I could get was Oil Slick.

I have to be on the look-out for Jazz and Oil Slick, definitely. And some of the Activators actually look alright.

First problem: Getting money.

Second problem: Making space; I have almost nowhere left in my house to keep these figures. Maybe one of these days I'll stop being lazy and start selling off some of my older, lesser stuff...

I went to 2 Targets, and 2 Wal*Marts tonight and found nothing but the original waves that came out. I'm starting to get discouraged as I'm just not finding Voyager Prime, or any of the wave 3 Deluxe figures. :nonono:

Soon-ish.

That's about the closest thing to a "release date" you get with Hasbro toys.

Went to Gig Harbor, WA Target to check for Deep Space Starscream (Had About 10) And found Voager Earth Mode Optimus Prime.

He's O.K.

Not the Best Animated Toy I have but a very nice figure that replicates his cartoon persona very well.

I didn't know until I bough him that the face shield could be up or down.
Come on and wind me up.

Tons of the Voyager Optimus at our Target (on sale even this week!), but it really doesn't look that great. So far, the deluxe in the two pack seems like the best OP so far.

Well, you guys are lucky, they haven't even started hitting shelves in Oklahoma yet, and whats worse is the manager of the Wal-mart supercenter in my town told me that they my not come till November or later! Something with the movie figures being backed up...

I had to preorder a Jazz(I had to have him,don't care if the plastic is crap)
Also ordered this Universe Deluxe Wave 2 or 3(?)pack from BBTS.com, Can't wait to see Sunstreaker and Prowl Up close!
All that was needed was a catalyst and the machines of war are set in motion.

I picked up voyager prime last night at my super wal-mart. Great figure. I saw him 2 times, the first at another super wal-mart in my area, but I picked up universe sunstreaker and prowl, and then I found him again last night at the other super wal-mart in my area and I went ahead and grabbed him then. One great figure, the only problem I have with him is his left arm comes off a little to easy, but some glue or nail polish will fix that. Other then that, he is a great figure, and everyone needs to try and find him.
