Every so often, wires get crossed at the distribution level. Such is the stuff of Collector Legend made - like the time TJ Maxx got a wave of Generations Voyagers before
they made their debut at full retail price. Or the sightings of Titans Return
Brainstorm at Walmart earlier this year! This time, TFW2005 forums member smf2045
has spotted a full case of six Combiner Wars
Grooves at an Orangevale, California Walmart. Unless more reports come in I wouldn't go out hunting at your local store, but keep reading to see the photographic proof all the same!
TFW2005 user Rastafarian
has posted photographic proof of finding Titans Return Brainstorm in a brick-and-mortar store! ...except it was found at Walmart, not Walgreens
where it is supposed to be an exclusive. Odds are very good this is just a mistake. Shipments go to the wrong places sometimes. But the good news is, that means that Brainstorm is likely shipping to Walgreens now, so hopefully it will work its way through the pharmacy franchise's supply chain and get to us shortly.

Okay, so most of us don't have a Fry's near us, so yesterday's sighting of Titans Return Deluxes
was not particularly helpful. Luckily, today's Voyager
sighting is a lot more familiar: TFW2005 user ahchu
reports that Galvatron and Sentinel Prime have been purchased at a Vallejo, California ToysRUs. Furthermore, they were purchased at their actual SRP of $25! At ToysRUs!
Exciting. Keep reading for photographic proof!
TFW2005 member guard convoy
reports that the very first known retail sale of Titans Return in the US was held at a Fry's Electronics in Houston, Texas! With the second
wave of Titan Masters preparing to ship at some online retailers and now Deluxes starting to leak out, it seems like the Titans are finally returning. About time! Keep reading for photographic proof.
From the smallest to the largest... the Transformers Collector's Club Australia has reported that Titan Class Fortress Maximus has been sighted in Myer stores. The going rate is AUD $360, which works out to about USD $261. Factor in shipping from Australia and... well, let's just say that if you're that crazy, could you get one for us too? Keep reading for the photo!
It begins! The first recorded sighting of Titans Return Legends is in, and it's from Australia! Paulbot from the Ozformers forums reports that a friend of his by the name of Sharky has found Rewind, Stripes, and Wheelie at Toymate. Retail price is $19.99 AUD (about $14.50 USD at the time of this writing). Keep reading to see photographic proof!
Ender has shared with us a photo of his recent find from a Chicago Target: the Sky Reign wave of Generations Deluxes! The second "Random G1 Dudes From 1984-5 As Robot Limbs" wave includes Smokescreen, Trailbreaker, Wheeljack, and Hound - and they seem to be hitting a lot of US stores this week, so happy hunting to all! Keep reading for the photographic proof!
TFW2005 user vproject has spotted Sky Reign at Phillipines Retail! To our knowledge, this marks the first time that the entire wave - Smokescreen, Trailbreaker, Wheeljack, and Autobot Hound along with Sky Lynx himself - have been sighted at retail. Onslaught, Sky Lynx's case mate, was also sighted, but was reported by vproject to still have the silver torso parts for Bruticus. Whether that's only the case with international releases of the wave remains to be seen. Keep reading to see photographic proof!

Victor Wong has posted images to the HK-TF Facebook page showing off his latest acquisition: Battle Core Optimus Prime! While certain sites like site sponsor BBTS had listed Battle Core Prime as shipping in July, that didn't pan out. But with an August ship date for the Deluxes and an HK sighting, it's not going to be that much longer. Read on to see photographic proof!
UK Combiner Wars fans were promised that, while Menasor (and a Superion that doesn't have a racecar for a limb) would remain an elusive dream, they would be getting Combiner Wars Wave 3. Today Urluck from Full Metal Hero confirmed that, as Hot Spot was found in an Argos store in Nottingham for 22.99. UK folks: keep reading for the post and evidence! US folks: look up the exchange rate, and thank your lucky stars!

Keep reading for a photo of what was found and list of what's in the wave!
Seibertron user Half Shell
has located the Titan Guardians at Big Lots! Priced at $5 each, these very simple, mostly-unarticulated figures of G1 characters began life as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive back in 2013. Keep reading to see the proof!
