What do you mean by "seasons"? You are talking about the toys and not the shows, right?

Well Armada, Energon, and Cybertron are right down my alley if you have any questions regarding those three lines

Old TF figures can be found online on places like amazon.com, ebay.com, bigbadtoystore.com, tfsource.com, pastgenerationtoys.com, toyarena.com, yahobby.com, robotkingdom.com, kapow-toys.com, etc.

They can also be found in flea markets, yard sales, garage sales, fan conventions, some collector shops, and so on.

But, unless they're being sold for clearance from no more than over a year ago, old TF toys cannot be found in mass retail stores like Target, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Toys'R'Us, Kohls, etc.

Also, this site here can provide a great amount of help to you.

Older figures (typically Energon, Cybertron, or Classics to my knowledge) can be found at some Walgreens, CVS, etc. The Energon and Cybertron ones will typically be under the line 'Universe'. A while ago I found some Animated ones there, but I think that was when Animated was still in Mass Retail stores so I'm not positive on that.
