My, oh my, where to begin?

The Wal*Mart on Market Street, Wilmington, has a decent selection of Beast Hunters figures. Deluxes Dreadwing, Ratchet, and Skystalker, Voyagers Optimus Prime, Megatron, Grimwing, and Ultra Magnus. For Generations, they had four Blitzwings (I picked up one of them!), no Springers (dammit), plenty of the wave 3 Fall of Cybertron Deluxes, and none of the FoC Wreckers.

At Toys "R" Us in Wilmington, they didn't have much (as usual). Two Prime: Robots in Disguise Wheeljacks (I picked up one because I hadn't found the time and funds to find him), Fall of Cybertron Frenzy & Ratbat, and one of the Autobot Data Disk two-packs, Optimus Maximus, Supreme Beast Hunters Optimus Prime, several Ultra Magnus(es/i?), random assortment of Bot Shots, and, no surpise, four or five Dark of the Moon Deluxes (can you believe it?)

I found the Construct Bots Starscream and Ironhide at the Concord TRU. They were in the regular Transformers section instead on the not-Lego section.

Targets on Hwy 70 (Glenwood Ave) and in Knightdale have reset their action figure aisles and have all of the Predacon Rising toys except for the Abominus giftset (no price sticker at all for it).

Found and bought Impactor, Roadbuster, and Whirl at the Southpoint Target in Durham. They didn't have Topspin and Twintwist, but I did find them at the Brier Creek Target. That Target still had Impactor, Roadbuster, and Whirl when I left.

Apparently MP Soundwave hit the three Triangle TRU stores this morning. Apparently, they are also all gone, but still encouraging to see it around. Someone wake me up when Acid Storm hits :)

Saw my first Springer at the Wal*Mart on Market Street, Wilmington. They also had Beast Hunters Ratchet, Dreadwing, Skystalker, Ultra Magnus, and Grimwing, Generations: Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime, Jazz, and Sideswipe. Nothing particularly interesting other than Springer.

Got super lucky & grabbed the last MP Soundwave at the Toys R Us in concord this morning. Supposedly there was only four this shipment, with an uncertain number coming on the next truck.
Meanwhile, my buddy snagged the last one in Pineville which received six this shipment.
Just to give everyone the heads up, toys r us is being super strict about only one per customer and no holding or reserving.

they will hold one, I know Gastonia and concord held half or more of their shipments last week for customers and employees.

Pineville is strict on the one per customer rule, but I think that is a good thing.

im surprised Pineville had any left, 4 were gone by 1030 am Thursday morning when they got them.

North Hills Target in Raleigh had the newest BH Cyberverse Commanders. Picked up one each of Huffer and Greentimus Prime and one of each remains.

They also had ample stock of Predacons Rising stuff, and two Generations Sandstorms.

BH Deluxes and Cyberverse Legion consisted of Wave 1 stuff. They have blind packed Kreo microchangers on that aisle, but they are Wave 2, not the newest one.

Stopped by Townridge Walmart off Glenwood Ave. yesterday. I don't recommend that you do the same, unless you still need a DotM Cyberverse Roadbuster.
