Triangle Town TRU - had one Cliffjumper as of last night (I left it, wrapped up FE ages ago thankfully). Also have plenty of the new Kreo Autobot Command Center.

Cary TRU - Some FE Starscreams/Bees, one Prime Skyquake (it's $30, but considering I paid $60 for one that was painful to see), and also had the Kreo Command Center.

Triangle Town TRU - not much worth noting, assortment of the things that are out at TRUs right now, minus any trace of Metroplex or MP Soundwave. Constructbot Scouts are $5 each (half off) today through Sunday, but all they have are Ironhide and Starscream. Beast Hunters deluxes there are Wave 1. Yep. The same Wave 1 that's been on the shelves for 11 months.

Traingle Town Target - Literally the same stock that's been there for almost 2 months. Save your time. Or go buy some of it.

Is Raleigh the only place in NC where stock doesn't move? Feels like no one around here is buying anything.

Cary Target still has one each of Predacons Rising Nova Blast Bumblebee and the Shockwave/Bombshock 2 pack. Not a lot of this Wave 2 stuff out there!

Cary TRU looks like it has for the past three months or so.

Townridge Walmart off Glenwood - same sad state of affairs that's been around for months on end. Didn't see any of the big ticket x-mas items either (BH OP, Metroplex, or even the Rescue Bot Trailer).

Raleigh TRU has had Jetwing Optimus for about a week now.

Went to the Cary TRU this morning and was welcomed by an actual new item.... legion Predacon Rippersnapper! Finally, my non-translucent Abominus is complete. Otherwise, the TF section is more or less the same as always and as much the same as Raleigh's TRU...

Been around the Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and Garner area over this weekend. Picked up a Disney Megazord-style robot at a comic shop in Durham, but as for Transformers.... been to all three local TRUs, a huge smattering of Targets and a small handful of Walmarts. Nothing new, everyone's the same.

The newest sighting of anything even remotely new was that the Poyner Place Walmart yesterday finally had 4 of the new deluxe IDW comic Transformers on a peg... 4 (Bumblebee, Orion Pax, Trailcutter, Hoist), after two, maybe three months since their last restock (the second wave of IDW TFs), which was what felt like almost half a year to a year since the last previous restock.... Feels like that Walmart likes empty pegs more than pegs with merchandise that can sell, because they love to keep those generation and beast hunter deluxe pegs empty or shove non-related toys (Power Rangers, TF Rescue Bots, SW Jedi Force) onto them. They also finally restocked on this year's assortment of Generation Voyagers after having none for a long time too.

Really, it seems like this Walmart has no problem restocking Construct-bots and those ugly OP and BB plastic bricks more than actual transforming Transformers, despite the fact that they don't seem to sell any faster than the deluxes or voyagers.

I hate that Walmart. Many days I'll check the Target and TRU across the street and not even go there. By my recollection, this year they've gotten one of each case of deluxes for Generations, this latest one being a rare repeat case. They haven't stocked BH deluxes since the Smokescreen wave, had the data discs for maybe a week, never got the BB/Prime legends two packs or subsequent waves, and are still sitting on their initial stock of BH Legions. Not to mention the toy dept. in that Walmart is always a nightmarish mess and they've got clearance sitting around from when the store opened.


On actual sightings - went to North Hills Target during lunch, good selection but nothing particularly new.

I agree completely about that Walmart. Except they did get the BB/Prime legends two packs, as this Walmart is where I found mine at, they just never got the Starscream/Megatron legends wave.

Seriously, the only boy toy franchise treated worse than Transformers at the Poyner Place Walmart are Marvel Universe (3 3/4") and Legend (6"). And don't get me started on how HW cars are taking over spots reserved for other toys and why Skylander toys are on that aisle.

At this point in time, the Poyner Place TRU remains the only place where I've seen BH deluxes Shadow Hunter Bumblebee and Prowl in our area. No one else (maybe the other TRUs, but I didn't go to them at that time, so I can't confirm) has yet moved beyond the BH Arcee & Knockout wave. And TRU only got one case of wave 5 with them, and immediately after getting them, they had a new case of BH Deluxe wave 1 sitting up on the top shelf.

No sooner do I complain about lack of new stuff and low and behold, TRU in Raleigh had the new IDW deluxes in-stock today. Picked up Waspinator and Autobot Skids. Someone else had already gotten there before me and snagged the other Waspinator. So 1 Autobot Skids, 2 Dreadwing, and 2 Goldfire still remain on the pegs.

I was indeed able to pick up the last Skids last night, along with a Goldfirebug and Dreadwing. Grabbed the only Constructbot Breakdown as well. Left a Goldfire, Dreadwing, and two Constructbots Dead Ends.

Thanks a ton Goggle Convoy!

The TRU in Cary also has the new IDW deluxes as of this morning. They only had 1 Skids, 2 Dreadwing, and 2 Goldfires by the time I got there. They also had the new basic Constructbots wave 3.

And now I know where all Wal-mart's Beast Hunter deluxes are going. The Poyner Place Walmart had a shelf display with "Bonus Value" BH deluxe 2-piece sets for $10. There are only four variations: Shadow Hunter Bumblebee and Skystalker, Autobot Ratchet and Soundwave, Smokescreen and Lazerback, and Prowl and Bulkhead. Two of each set for a total of eight set. Brier Creek Walmart had them also, just none of the Prowl/Bulkhead sets. So this should be good for those of you still looking for SHBB and Prowl.

Target at Lynn Rd./Hwy. 70 has a case of the newest wave (Skids, etc.), 2 of each left except Waspinator, 1 left, because Candace is taking one home with her :D

Hey guys..I was a member of TFW (note the past tense) and I am also on the toyark.

ScottyP..you may or may not remember me. I'm Steve, good friends with Allen and Rob. I was with you guys the night we went to see Ironman 3 and we ate at the deli before hand.

Anyway, I was in Raleigh on Saturday and hit up the Lynn Road Target. All that was left were 2 Dreadwings and 2 Goldfires. I got a Dreadwing and left the rest. I was really hoping to find Skids.

If anyone sees a Skids in the area please let me know. Once I get him I will be done with the wave, as a friend of mine has already secured me a Waspinator. Thanks friends!!

Yeah man, I am glad to be here!! I signed up a while back, but never posted. I am changing that now.

So anyway if someone sees a Skids in the triangle area please let me know. He is the main figure I have yet to find from the new wave. Thanks in advance!!

Ended up out in Cary for a bit. The TRU is pretty picked over, but they do have some of the newer Constructbots sitting there. 2 Breakdowns, 2 Dead Ends, and 1 Silverbolt still there. Also one each of Dreadwing and Goldfire.

Cary Target also has one each of Dreadwing and Goldfire, then just tons of old stock otherwise.
