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.

Good Lord, do those look terrible! :SICK:

I mean, I know Optimus Prime was quite bad, but I think that's the first time I've seen those Bumblebees. I regret even looking at those abominations. Thank God they're Toys "R" Us exclusive. [-(

Some of you may be aware that I'm a rabid, nearly OCD completionist for U.S. releases and buy pretty much everything. I even got the DotM Bash Bots!

But those over-sized party favors? No way. No. Way. Those are garbage and don't deserve to take up space in my collection.

Triangle Town Target and North Hills Targets in Raleigh - they have stuff in the back but not on the floor (Predacons Rising, etc.) but I didn't have time to ask them to get anything out. Maybe over the weekend.

I went to the Target in Concord. It was slim pickings as usual, but they did have that translucent Abominus.

Speaking of Abominus, has anyone seen the single carded Windrazor, Blight, and Rippersnapper yet?

Has anyone spotted the first wave of the Generations: Thrilling 30 Deluxes? Some folks over at TFW2005 are already starting to find them, the first sighting being at a Target in San Bernardino, CA!

Image
Image

Also, the Megatron & Chop Shop and Starscream & Waspinator Legends packs were spotted a few days ago as well, in yet another Target store in San Jose, CA.

Image

I was hoping to snag either Trailbreaker, Orion Pax, Megatron, and maaaaaybe Starscream & Waspinator (just to give the Waspinator Targetmaster buddy to the upcoming Deluxe! :lol: ) for my 18th birthday this Wednesday. :x

Went around Wake County today! Haven't done this in awhile :x

Cary TRU - Picked up Constructabots Ironhide and Starscream. Several left. Not much else to report.
Cary Target - lol, they kind of sell Transformers. Not worth checking.
Cary Walmart (Kildaire Farm) - Got the only Generations Whirl, there were no other Wreckers.
Apex Target - Still have some PR Abominus sets, one Beast Fire Predaking, and some Constructabot Ironhide/Starscreams
Apex Walmart - Nope
Holly Springs Target, which I didn't know existed - Nothing much. They -had- Wreckers, but not when I got there.
Holly Springs Walmart - Nope. Springer and Blitzwing if you need them?
Fuquay Walmart - Had a Grimwing and Cyberverse Hun-Grr. Not much else interesting.
Garner Walmart - boring
Garner Targets (both) - boring
New Hope Rd. Walmart in Raleigh - nothing to see there either

Picked up the rest of the first wave of Predacons Rising stuff at Wake Forest Target. People on the floor were super nice about getting me one of each of Darksteel, Sky Lynx, and the Commander 2-pack out of the back. They have the Legion 2-pack and Abominus out on the floor.

This Target no longer has the scanners where you can type in a DCPI to check stock, you have to get an associate to check. Just a reminder if you do that - be pleasant, patient, and if they won't get them, remain polite and try the next store :) Targets are everywhere.
