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!

Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!

Yeah, those things, along with Blaster & Steeljaw themselves, either go up like the Rainmakers at this year's BotCon, or are major targets of scalpers (more likely the latter). I was lucky enough to nab both packs at my local Target a few months back, best part there was only one of each. I knew if I didn't get them then, I'd never see them again, so I bit the bullet and got them both. Now if only I can find Blaster... :BANG_HEAD:

I can't compete with that, I'm only 27! Hehe.

I'd say I've been truly "collecting" for about 8 years now, was a casual consumer of most things TF before that since childhood.

Got Voyager BH Megatron this morning at the Wal-mart off of exit 69 on I-540 in Morrisville.... Don't look at me like that, the DOT decided on that exit number. When I left, there was still an Ultra Magnus and Grimwing on the shelf along with two BH OPs.

Anyone had any luck with the wreckers? I know they're out, I keep finding remnants of the case, but it seems like the four stores closest to me -all- got wiped out nearly simultaneously.
