Mindmaster, check TRU on Oleander. Both Starscream and Bulkhead were there yesterday.
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

Wave 2 Voyagers are in pretty good saturation here in the Triangle. I've seen 3 Starscreams today between Walmart, Target, and TRU.

Anybody here into picking up Bot Shots? Looking for Wave 3.

Haven't seen the wave 3 Bot Shots yet, or I'd be willing to help you out. I did get Cyberverse Ironhide and Dreadwing though. My wife found them at TRU in Hickory. I went to pick up Knockout at the Walmart there, but they had already sold all but one Hotshot (the blue BB repaint). She said they were the only two they had, so she grabbed them.
I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Not much going on in the Triangle. If you like DotM stuff, this is the place.

Apparently Wake Forest Target has Knockout and Hot Shot if anyone's looking.

For my fellow Wilmington collectors, if you go to that Tomlinson shop near the McDonald's by the college, they've got several DOTM figures (Crankcase, Topspin, Roadbuster, and Ratchet) and, what I was excited about, the occasional Generations figures. Skullgrin is all that's left. There was a WFC Soundwave... until I snagged it. Been looking for him for over two years, and I couldn't afford to let him slip by my fingers. Well pleased with him, can't wait for what the Voyager mold has to offer! ;)

If you live in the Hickory/Conover area your in luck. I found 4 Transformers Prime Weaponizers at Kmart on Hwy70. There were 3 Optimus and 1 Bumblebee. This was on 7/17/12 around 3:30pm on the very top shelf above the Transformers DOTM toys. I nearly missed them.
Enjoy!! I'm done with the Transformers Prime line they seem to be over selling them or under selling the rare ones. The upcoming cases to be released are going to have multiple vehicons and airchnids so don't waste your time with over priced ones on Ebay.

I spotted and purchased Voyager Prime figures Bulkhead and Starscream back at the end of June at the Wal-Mart SuperCenter in Lexington. Since then they managed to get in wave 1 and wave 2 of the Deluxe Prime maybe about once, leaving nothing but that damn overdone Bumblebee figure to clutter the pegs now.

It's maddening how this store and even the Wal-Mart SuperCenter in Thomasville aren't getting these figures. I'm checking nearly every night after I leave work and nothing. Either they're not being ordered or the warehouse from which these stores get their stock isn't able to get the merchandise.

Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter FINALLY got in Fall of Cybertron figures Optimus Prime, Jazz, and Shockwave (only two months after every Target and Toys R' Us had gotten them in). I didn't buy any of them as I had ordered mine a month earlier from www.hasbrotoystore.com before their price hike and with free shipping (ordered Star Hammer with Wheeljack to qualify).

Otherwise the Transformers pegs and shelves in this particular Wal-Mart SuperCenter are either empty or full of Bumblebees. It's getting ridiculous!

But there's a silver lining to every cloud, even in NC...

Out and about in Winston-Salem, NC on 9/7/12 with intentions of purchasing Hasbro's Masterpiece Thundercracker at Toys R' Us (which they didn't have in stock nor have a place on the shelf for the toy). However, I was able to find and purchase Cyberverse Leader Class figures Dreadwing, Nightwatch Optimus Prime, and Ultra Magnus. Although all three Cyberverse Leader Class figures are listed on the Product Listings page, only Dreadwing has a picture of itself. So without the picture of the other two visible, there is no picture to appear on Seibertron's homepage to show fellow Seibertronians that these particular figures was found and/or purchased.

Later I drove over to the Target and there I found Cyberverse Legion Class figures Knock Out, Fallback, and Autobot Tailgate. Unfortunately these three figures aren't listed at all on the Product Listings page and thus I'm unable to inform fellow Seibertronians that I found these figures via that page.

After leaving Target, I then hit the nearby Wal-Mart SuperCenter just down the road where I found and purchased Cyberverse Leader Class figures Battle Tactics Bulkhead and Skyquake. Unfortunately these two figures aren't listed on the Product Listings page either and... well, you know the rest.

Thundercracker was 74.99, the only GDO's I saw were 2 of that RotF Dune Runner repaint. I swear a scalper lives at that store.
