Independence is in Charlotte,NC. I'm not sure if FortMacs is referring to there or not. A lot of cities have the same names, but I'm betting Charlotte.
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.

Crap. I've been scouring the Wilmington Toys "R" Us, Wal*Mart, and Target, switching between the three weekly.

If anyone is still looking for PRiD Kup and Vehicon they had one of each at the TRU by Concord Mills today. I saw them at 2:30ish so if you're in the area check it out, they might still be there.

Speaking of Kup, I was over at the Big Lots by Shipyard Boulevard in Wilmington, across the street from my high school the other day. They have tons of him over there. There's also a couple Rumbles and street pavement-colored Bumblebees (Stealth Bumblebee?), and then there's one of Arcee and Airachnid in the far back of the shelves.

Found Skystalker and Dreadwing at the Walmart by Concord Mills. Didn't look for Ratchet, but he was probably there as well.

Also found a few Springers and Blitzwings. 2 days after I got the Springer I ordered on Amazon. :BANG_HEAD:

I see 4 of each springer and blitzwing every time I go to walmart now. Glad they aren't as hard to find as I first thought they would be.

My local Target had better get its **** together: with all these sightings of the Triplechangers at Wal*Mart, might start looking around there instead. >:oP

Just stopped by the Wal*Mart on Market Street here in Wilmington. My suspicions were confirmed: I was delighted to see my first Blitzwing in-person, but I didn't get him because I'm lacking funds. No Springer, unfortunately, who is my primary objective besides Blaster. Other than that, there were a pair of Beast Hunters Dreadwings, singles of Ratchet and Wheeljack, several Voyager Predakings and an Optimus, and several Fall of Cybertron figures, consisting of Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Sideswipe, and Optimus Prime.

In the Cyberverse section, there were pairs of Smokescreens and Twinstrikes, and several Beast Hunters Optimus Primes and a Predaking.

Found Optimus Prime & Autobot Roller and Bumblebee & Blazemaster at 2 Walmarts in Brier Creek and Triangle Town Center in Raleigh. The Brier Creek Walmart still also has some Springers and Blitzwings on the shelf.

Bumblebee is good, but Optimus Prime's chest plates have trouble staying open so you can see his Autobot insignia and I can't move his shoulders without them closing. First, Blitzwing's shoulders, now Optimus Prime's...

Found BH Voyagers Ultra Magnus and Grimwing at the Poyner Place Super Target in Raleigh, NC this morning. There was still one more UM on the shelf when I left.

Also found Series 2 Kreo Microchangers at the TRU across from this Target. Got Arcee and Hardshell, although I was trying for Scourge in place of Hardshell. Arcee was easy with the whole 69 thing.... Maybe I should rephrase that >_>; It was easy to find the Arcee, knowing her code had a 69 in it, the only code among that set I bothered to memorize.

Yeah, I sometimes stop by Wal*Mart every once in a while. Last time I went was last month: seen my first Blitzwing in-person, but I didn't have the cash at the time. I try to stop by stores whenever I can.

Got the only Sandstorm at Wake Forest Target. Didn't see any others while out.

Also got the last Beast Hunter Optimus Prime (The ultimate sized one) at Triangle Town TRU.

In things potentially actually helpful to others, Triangle Town Walmart had one each of the Autobot FoC Data Disks. I haven't seen those much at all, especially lately!
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!
