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:(

just a quick post to say i went to the Goldsboro NC target and they had the animated voyager/activator 2 packs on shelves. i am posting here cause i havent heard of any reports of these guys anywhere but in the back yet.
i couldnt afford both at the time so i picked up shockwave, he said it was a logical choice and sunstorm agreed and called me a wise and savvy consumer.
