Nice. Thanks for the heads up. And to any SC coastal area collectors. I can find you just about any new figure other than Kup and Scourge. If you need some help picking up a Gen. or RTS figure, PM me. I would like to start a non profit effort to keep SC collectors up to speed. :BOT:

I've thought about just buying up a whole bunch of the stuff that everyone is looking for and just starting a thread where all you have to pay is the price of the toy and cost of shipping. Especially since other parts of the country seem to be having a tough time with new TF distribution.

Thats cool. I wish I could help the entire country, but for now I just want SC collectors to know that if they need help catching a guy or two, I'm willing to purchase, package and ship with a receipt so that we all can get whats out there. But yes pretty much what your saying only local.

Just wanted people to know, the preview DOTM Optimus Prime is at the Myrtle Beach TRU. There was atleast 15 left this afternoon. They also have some Animated (including Rodimus if anyone missed him) marked down considerably.

The Indian Land, SC (right outside Charlotte, NC) Wal-Mart is a goldmine! I've had so much luck there!

Last sighting: RTS Wreck-Gar and Perceptor last week (I check the store every week).

Souh Carolina sightings

Postby dinojack86 » Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:53 am

Found two sets of the BIG THREE (in my opinion) Generations Wheeljack, Thundercracker, and Warpath on Tuesday (21 Jun) at the Target on Garner's Ferry Road in Columbia, SC. They also had Scourge and Kup

LEADER IRONHIDE

Postby dinojack86 » Thu Jul 07, 2011 6:14 pm

I'd just like to see how many people have seen Leader Ironhide (without posting on the sightings page) just to get an idea of how well-saturated he is in stores. I know in South Carolina all our stores have right now are wave 1 and 2 stuff- tons of Leader Bumblebees and Sentinel Primes. Anybody having any luck elsewhere?

Dude, the beach where I live is a giant tourist machine. As far as I can tell, there might be one other fan on the Grande Strand. I know this because the only figures in a wave I want are the ones I cannot find! :D I feel like I'm always 5 minutes behind the person I've come to call..."The Rival".

I shall you find you Rival, and when I do, I'm taking your shopping cart! MUWAHAHAHAA:lol:

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.

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!!!!
