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.

Could some of you guys post pics of your collections here? I was just wondering if there were any good collections in NC.

Not really a sighting, unless you saw me, but I was in R/D yesterday for an interview in the Research Triangle area, and wanted to know if anyone could ge me some area suggestions if I were to move down.
Kinda like what towns to avoid, where are taxes high, etc. We have two young sons, one of which would start kindergarden next year, so schools are a factor too. Any help is appreciated, feel free to PM if you don't want to clog the sightings forum!

Thanks!!

I don't know what the deal is with the Wal-Mart Super Centers in Lexington and Thomasville, but neither place is ordering Transformers: ROTF Toys. The Lexington store is the worst as they have a total of 12 pegs for Deluxe figures and right now there is only one figure on each peg and every one of them is Jolt. The shelf for Voyager Class figures isn't any better. There's enough room on the shelf for a total of approximately 12 to 18 figures and there's only 6 and all of them are Stratosphere. It's been like this for at least two months while the Deluxes have been on Roll-Back to $10.00 and the Voyagers have been on Roll-Back for $20.00. Of course, the pegs with the Scouts are bursting at the seams, but it's not of any of the most recently released Waves. The Lexington store did finally get in probably one box of Legends and I was finally able to purchase Wheelie, but no luck with Stealth Bumblebee. The Legends pegs look sad too, all 8 pegs with maybe two Legend figures to each peg. I've even left Post-It notes on the shelves and pegs on numerous occasions stating "Is anyone ordering this item?" or "Please order more!" If they want my money, they should get the merchandise in, right?

The Thomasville location isn't doing much better either. However, their 12 pegs for Deluxe figures are full as well as the back endcap, also on Roll-Back for $10.00. The shelf for the Voyager Class figures had about 8 figures and there was a even mix of Stratospheres, Megatrons, Ratchets, and one Bludgeon. During several trips in the past I was able to get the most recently released Scouts and Legends in this store, but that was about it.

But the silver lining to this gray cloud is that I hit the Salisbury Wal-Mart Super Center last week and I was able to find Deluxe Ratchet, Deluxe Brawn, and Voyager Mindwipe. They have the Voyagers on Roll-Back for $19.97 and the Deluxes on Roll-Back for $9.00. Sweet! However, no sign of Voyager Defender Optimus Prime, Deluxe Lockdown, Deluxe EVAC, Deluxe Rampage (Red), or Deluxe Strike Mission Sideswipe. Now if this store can get the merchandise into their store, how come the Thomasville and Lexington locations can not?

oh snap, people post here!

To ^, if the same stuff is on the shelf, they've probably got the newer stuff, merely haven't put it out due to the old stuff just... sitting there.

Have you tried the Super Wally off of 150/Peters Creek? That's not very far from Lexington/T-ville.

Most of mine is boxed up/in storage, otherwise I would. Blame it on trying to stay mobile.

I'd like to think I have a pretty baller collection though. Getting close to the 1500 mark here :D
