Really? Sweet! Myrtle Beach SC. I live on the southside in an area called Surfside Beach. I know there is atleast ONE toy collector (possibly a scalper) because figures like Generations Scourge disappear while the ROTF Mudflaps of the world smother my local shelves.

i chose looking for em on ebay cuz every walmart or target that managed to have one on hand were always damaged,like with a box cutter or jus plain rough handling.i leave mine in the display box,they jus look more awesome that way.i love anything bumblebee but what happen to ironhide jus made me want him more.

Excellent news! I will be at the Myrtle Beach TRU tomorrow!

As a side note, I met a fellow collector that live in my home town of Conway! A member of tfw2005.com, I'm currently trying to get him to switch teams to TEAM SEIBERTRON!

There are two Grapples, a Lugnut, and a Strafe at the Summerville Ross(the one in Azalea Square). I didn't realize that they were only $9.99, what a deal!

Yes it is a helluva deal, especially considering the inflated Ebay costs! I was lucky enough to nab up a Windcharger at the Ross in Myrtle Beach for $5.00!!!!

Maybe the Generations Drought is over. There were 3 Wheeljacks, 2 Scourges, 1 Thundercracker, 1 of those really coveted Warpaths and all the Kups you could ever want at the Summerville Wal-Mart.

Awesome news! I gotta tell ya people, and you can take this whichever way you want: DOTM product is practically clogging the aisles of Grand Strand area Walmarts. Target seems to be the only store that isn't overrun with DOTM figures. I don't think this stuff is moving the way Hasbro and WalMart expected.

But the Generations and RTS stuff? Merely whispers and rumors. :lol:

As of Sunday morning, there were a ton of Transformers Prime: First Edition deluxe figures at the TRU in North Charleston. And quite a few generations figures at the TRU express at the Tanger outlets, if you missed out on any.

Just got back from Spartanburg Toys R Us. They had the whole set minus the Megatron. I called the Target in Greenville they had the following deluxes: 1X Cliffjumper, 1X Wheeljack, and 1X BB. The Spartanburg Target's DCPI numbers do not register, but they are listed as in stock on the Target website.

Got the only Dreadwing at the Boiling Springs Walmart. The Westgate Walmart had one Cyberverse Skyquake. Other than that nothing new in the Spartanburg area.

Myrtle Beach SC Toys R Us had the scout and legend class GDOs as well as 3 Masterpiece Thundercrackers. I picked up the 4 scouts and the 2 legends that are not included in the Ultimate Transformers G2 pack. Prices are ridiculous. $56+ for 4 scouts and 2 legends....

Still have a complete set left as of 10/5/12 7pm.
