North Carolina Transformers sightings

Yeah, we need a thread. Post your sightings here!

Guess I'll start it off. Found a bunch of the new FABs yesterday, but no new deluxes. Of course I only looked at a whopping three stores...

Saw the new wave of movie deluxes at a walmart a couple of days ago. They had probably 6 '08 Bumblebees, 4 Arcees, and 4 of....ah....the new jet, can't place his name at the moment.

Snagged an '08 Bumblebee.

I have not seen the new Bumblebee for the past 2 weeks!!

I cannot tell you how annoyed I am :sad:

I've called, everyday in the past 2 weeks, Wal-Mart, Target, and TRU.
Been to 2 different Wal-Marts 3 times total...Target twice, TRU thrice. No freaking luck.

I'm getting desperate now. There's absolutely nothing in Durham!

^ there's never crap in durham, i work at southpoint (despite living in cary and going to school in raleigh...) and that target never has a thing.

I basically said fck it awhile back and started going online for everything, the triangle has too many scalpers.

But sightings threads/etc make it better

Saw some of the new FAB's at Target the other day - Blackout, Megatron, and Frenzy.

Other than that, every store in town does not have even one deluxe or leader class figure.

about two weeks ago I found movie Arcee (not the target recolor). It was at Target here in Fayetteville. Today I saw several Robot replicas. The Baricade looks really cool. That was at Toys R us.

I'm originally from Fayetteville. Everytime I go to visit the folks, I never have any luck at any of the stores down that way, especially Target.

Southpoint Target had plenty of things I didn't buy, including: 6" Titanium Starscream, Rodimus, and RiD Prime; Ultimate Bumblebee (next paycheck...); and randomn robot replicas.

Anything else was completely gone by 5 pm when I went. Damn work :/

No deluxe reset anywhere near me, but I was up in Boone a week ago and they still had Classics Mirage.

OK, this is weird. I never did see the more resent 6" Titaniums here, but I was looking at Target for 08 Bumblebee and I found, get this, 6" Titanium Cheetor. I've never been dieing to get him, but I had to by him on principle, lol. There was only one. I figure (punn) it was a fluke.

^ One of the targets up this way got restocked with some of the older waves, so it probably isn't a fluke.

I take back what I said.Partially. I am officially pissed at walmart because that was some BS. Protos was whe last thing i expected since I never saw them at walmart. I went to toysrus today didnt find anything. But one of the guys said they were in fact OVERSTOCKED with deluxes and voyagers :shock: And I told him I was looking for the new figures and he said they had shipments of figs that were about 2 weeks old along with overstock. He said the stockroom was a complete mess and trust me IT WAS. He let me look around since he obviously didn't feel like it. It was like protoform city back there.I spent atleast 15 minuites back there searching through endless mountians of protoforms and starscreams and guess what I found......08 BUMBLEBEE!!!. And they were about to send that fella back to the warehouse.Too bad that was the only new thing back there. Im gussing they didnt have Arcee or the other deluxes because they werent even in their system.But whatever a finally got him!! :D :grin: :) :o :lol: 8) :P :-P

Picked up a Dropkick, Payload, and Final Battle Jazz this morning at Walmart.

They also had a couple of Ultimate Bumblebees, some Megatron Voyagers, and the new movie Robot Heroes.

I hope to try Kohl's today...maybe at night to beat the heat (it's soooo freakin' hot).

This Monday, I checked by TRU in Durham and there were nothing but Starscream protoforms. :-x

Buttt
Even if I never come across an '08 BB, I won't be too sad because I'm getting the BD one in the mail in a few weeks. Or months :/

I went by Kohl's today and I purchased a Bonecrusher. There were about 2 left of him and...oh around 4 regular Jazzes. I also saw a little tiny Legends Barricade as well as 2 Brawls.

Nothing new, though. I'm keeping my hopes up.

Got a leader Brawl at the Brier Creek Target today :D One left at noon after I got mine. So, probably no more of him there.

Picked up a Deluxe Arcee at the Kohl's just north of there, they only had one of her and 0 BBs :/

Nemesis Prime? At a Walmart? Uh... do you mean the 3" Titanium by chance?
