Scores of FE Vehicons and Terrorcon Cliffjumper, and pairs of Starscream and Arcee.

For the GDOs, they were well stocked on Wheelies, Springers, "G1" Cliffjumpers, Swerves, Megatron's and Terradives. Didn't see Hot Spot (to my disappointment) or Brawn. Did see something truly bizarre: Generations Junkheap! They only had one, and I hoped they had Black Shadow to even the odds on my shelf; none at all. Picked him up anyway, since I never did get Wreck-Gar.



They still have Wheelies? thats the only delux i dont have and would probably be willing to make the drive if i knew there were still some on the shelves.

Yeah, I still believe there are several Wheelies left. I was there again a couple days ago to check if they still had MP Thundercracker, and there were like three or four of them.

Finally seeing Dreadwing and the Combaticons here in Concord. I picked up Dreadwing, but the Combaticons only seem to show up when I'm broke.

Good news for collectors in Wilmington:

There are literally CRAPTONS of FOC Soundwave and his merry men at the Toys "R" Us on Market Street.

Forgot to post this yesterday, my bad. Saw Onslaught and a pair of Vortexes (got one of them) at the Wal*Mart near Monkey Junction, and there was a Brawl and Blast Off at the Toys "R" Us on Market Street.

Found wave 3 of the FoC figures at Wal Mart. That's another group of figures I wasn't expecting to find for a while.

Any Wilmington/local collectors having a tough time finding Swindle or the other Combaticons? Or is it just me?

For those interested in Beast Hunters, they've popped up in the Toys "R" Us on Market Street, Wilmington. Also sighted was Generations wave three.

I have to agree. The looseness of his "knees" in robot mode have him collapsing backwards if not posed more forward. Then there's the immobile hips when in T-Rex mode. So as of now, my favorite Grimlock is Animated Grimlock. I'm thinking of adding him, Animated Snarl (truly Animated Slag), and Animated Swoop to my Classic/Generations. I'll eventually get around to kitbashing my two other Animated *Slags* into actual Animated Sludge and Animated Snarl to complete the five Dinobots.

Found only one at the Thomasville Wal-Mart SuperCenter today. Sorry, I didn't have one yet and so I bought it. I haven't been by the Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter since last Friday and their pegs and shelves were more bare than Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard then. However, since the T-Ville store got in some stock, there's a slim chance the Lexington location did as well.

Anyone in the Triangle area seen a Shockwave yet? I've hit up most of the Walmarts in the area and not a sign of it.

They had one Kickback in the Wilmington Wal*Mart supercenter last Friday. But other than that, same here: I haven't seen much of Kickback around.

Went out TF hunting this morning after taking care of my paycheck and managed to find and buy legion Soundwave and Hun-gurr at the Wal-mart on Glenwood ave in Raleigh. No more Hun-gurrs, but plenty of Soundwave and Prowl. After running around 3/4's of the rest of Raleigh, Cary, Garner, and Clayton and seeing no other signs of the new legions or Voyager Shockwave, I stopped at the Target at Poyner Place in North Raleigh and after almost overlooking it, thinking it was another Predaking, I took a closer look and was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was Shockwave! Yeah, no more wasting time and gas running around hunting... at least until the next batch of TFPBH figures are released.

If you're looking for Hun-Gurr, come on down to Wilmington. The other day at my local Wal*Mart they had multiple Hung-Gurrs (no Sinnertwins, sadly).

Swiped that Shockwave from mah stompin' grounds, eh?

:sad:

Hehe, nice find, that Target's usually very good for new stuff.

Staying on topic - North Hills Target in Raleigh yesterday was not much to report about, but they did have the newest wave of (awesome) Bot Shots singles.
