I'm originally from Fayetteville. Everytime I go to visit the folks, I never have any luck at any of the stores down that way, especially Target.

Southpoint Target had plenty of things I didn't buy, including: 6" Titanium Starscream, Rodimus, and RiD Prime; Ultimate Bumblebee (next paycheck...); and randomn robot replicas.

Anything else was completely gone by 5 pm when I went. Damn work :/

No deluxe reset anywhere near me, but I was up in Boone a week ago and they still had Classics Mirage.

OK, this is weird. I never did see the more resent 6" Titaniums here, but I was looking at Target for 08 Bumblebee and I found, get this, 6" Titanium Cheetor. I've never been dieing to get him, but I had to by him on principle, lol. There was only one. I figure (punn) it was a fluke.

^ One of the targets up this way got restocked with some of the older waves, so it probably isn't a fluke.

I take back what I said.Partially. I am officially pissed at walmart because that was some BS. Protos was whe last thing i expected since I never saw them at walmart. I went to toysrus today didnt find anything. But one of the guys said they were in fact OVERSTOCKED with deluxes and voyagers :shock: And I told him I was looking for the new figures and he said they had shipments of figs that were about 2 weeks old along with overstock. He said the stockroom was a complete mess and trust me IT WAS. He let me look around since he obviously didn't feel like it. It was like protoform city back there.I spent atleast 15 minuites back there searching through endless mountians of protoforms and starscreams and guess what I found......08 BUMBLEBEE!!!. And they were about to send that fella back to the warehouse.Too bad that was the only new thing back there. Im gussing they didnt have Arcee or the other deluxes because they werent even in their system.But whatever a finally got him!! :D :grin: :) :o :lol: 8) :P :-P

Picked up a Dropkick, Payload, and Final Battle Jazz this morning at Walmart.

They also had a couple of Ultimate Bumblebees, some Megatron Voyagers, and the new movie Robot Heroes.

I hope to try Kohl's today...maybe at night to beat the heat (it's soooo freakin' hot).

This Monday, I checked by TRU in Durham and there were nothing but Starscream protoforms. :-x

Buttt
Even if I never come across an '08 BB, I won't be too sad because I'm getting the BD one in the mail in a few weeks. Or months :/

I went by Kohl's today and I purchased a Bonecrusher. There were about 2 left of him and...oh around 4 regular Jazzes. I also saw a little tiny Legends Barricade as well as 2 Brawls.

Nothing new, though. I'm keeping my hopes up.

Got a leader Brawl at the Brier Creek Target today :D One left at noon after I got mine. So, probably no more of him there.

Picked up a Deluxe Arcee at the Kohl's just north of there, they only had one of her and 0 BBs :/

Wow, picked up Leader Class Brawl, voyager Rescue Ratchet and voyager Thundercracker, and the new wave of Movie robot heroes last night at Walmart, box was in mint condition which was a surprise because usually they throw them in a cart then put them on the shelves. Also got G1 repaint of Jazz at Target.

Finally they seem to be coming to triangle area!

Welcome to the forums!

In the future, It'd be helpful if you could post which location it was XD There are like a dozen targets in the triangle and half a dozen walmarts...

I had no idea that it was a exclusive but I did see it. I dont know how or where the heck he came from.All I know is that I was pissed when I opened him. Anyway, I went durham scouting today and I was quite pleased. Found arcee and dreadwing at Kohles today, Titanium 6"sunstorm at one target and GI jazz/starscream at the other. Also, Leader brawl and thundercracker at toysrus. I still need dropkick:(
