Re: North Carolina Transformers sightings

Click here for more information of Charticon 2013.

Hello all!

After much planning I am pleased to announce Charticon 2013, taking place August 9th, 10th and 11th, 2013 in Charlotte, North Carolina. We will be holding the convention at the Marriott Charlotte Executive Park right off I-77 near the heart of Charlotte. While we are still deep in the planning stages here are a few things you can expect from the show:

Voice Actors (Woot!)
Cosplay and Costume Contests
4,000+ sq ft Dealer Room
Transformers Toy Panels
Trivia Contests
Kids Games
Friday night DJ Party

Plus tons more! We don't want to reveal too many details just yet, but we've had a ton of interest and are already expecting a big turnout. You can learn more at:

Charticon

http://www.facebook.com/charticon

The hotel is already accepting reservations at a very reasonable rate so make your reservations soon!

Thanks!

Eric

WoW! I'll be moving to South Carolina this winter! I don't think I've made a con in over 8 years or so. It will be great to be back in the lower 48. I will miss Alaska though.

Thundercracker was 74.99, the only GDO's I saw were 2 of that RotF Dune Runner repaint. I swear a scalper lives at that store.

It's maddening how this store and even the Wal-Mart SuperCenter in Thomasville aren't getting these figures. I'm checking nearly every night after I leave work and nothing. Either they're not being ordered or the warehouse from which these stores get their stock isn't able to get the merchandise.


Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter FINALLY got in Fall of Cybertron figures Optimus Prime, Jazz, and Shockwave (only two months after every Target and Toys R' Us had gotten them in). I didn't buy any of them as I had ordered mine a month earlier from http://www.hasbrotoystore.com before their price hike and with free shipping (ordered Star Hammer with Wheeljack to qualify).

Otherwise the Transformers pegs and shelves in this particular Wal-Mart SuperCenter are either empty or full of Bumblebees. It's getting ridiculous!

But there's a silver lining to every cloud, even in NC...

Out and about in Winston-Salem, NC on 9/7/12 with intentions of purchasing Hasbro's Masterpiece Thundercracker at Toys R' Us (which they didn't have in stock nor have a place on the shelf for the toy). However, I was able to find and purchase Cyberverse Leader Class figures Dreadwing, Nightwatch Optimus Prime, and Ultra Magnus. Although all three Cyberverse Leader Class figures are listed on the Product Listings page, only Dreadwing has a picture of itself. So without the picture of the other two visible, there is no picture to appear on Seibertron's homepage to show fellow Seibertronians that these particular figures was found and/or purchased.

Later I drove over to the Target and there I found Cyberverse Legion Class figures Knock Out, Fallback, and Autobot Tailgate. Unfortunately these three figures aren't listed at all on the Product Listings page and thus I'm unable to inform fellow Seibertronians that I found these figures via that page.

After leaving Target, I then hit the nearby Wal-Mart SuperCenter just down the road where I found and purchased Cyberverse Leader Class figures Battle Tactics Bulkhead and Skyquake. Unfortunately these two figures aren't listed on the Product Listings page either and... well, you know the rest.


I was in the Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter on Friday, 5 October, 2012 and they had ONE Prime Voyager Dreadwing. I would've mentioned this on the Sightings List page, but this significant figure still isn't listed on the Sightings List page.

No surprise, still no new Deluxe Prime figures at this store. Just the same three or four BB's.

TRU has MP Thundercracker available online once again. I ordered mine last weekend and got it yesterday. They recently got the new Deluxe Wheelie and Swerve in as well, but I didn't move fast enough to get Wheelie. I do have Swerve on order though.

I'm rather surprised the Voyager Dreadwing is still on the shelf at the Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter, though not surprised that the same three Deluxe BB's are still on the pegs and nothing else. The Thomasville Wal-Mart SuperCenter got in Voyager Class too and they have at least one Dreadwing sitting there. Not surprising is the even bigger amount of Deluxe BB's that are littering the pegs in that store. I at least know the Voyagers are getting ordered and I can only assume the same of the Deluxe Class. I just don't understand why the warehouse isn't fulfilling the orders or why the warehouse itself isn't getting the merchandise in in the first place.

Yipee! Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter FINALLY got in a case of Deluxes Prime figures which appear to have consisted of 2 BB's (WHY?), 2 Vehicons, 1 Knockout, 1 Wheeljack, 1 Sergeant Kup, and I'm assuming, 1 Rumble (that one was gone when I got there). Interesting that since it's taken them so long to finally get in a case of Deluxe Prime figures, that they managed to bypass any assortments that might contain Airachnid.

Fellow Wilmington collectors, listen up!

At Independence Mall, a new store near the food court opened up, called Go Games. At the back of the store is a very small assortment of Transformers toys, mainly Knock Out and Bumblebee.

Swung by the Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter real early Saturday morning on my way to work on the chance that they might have gotten in yet another case of Deluxe Prime figures as I was still looking for Rumble. It's a good thing I did as I found the one Rumble in that case to purchase, but left the three remaining Vehicons there if someone wants to build up their Vehicon army. Two Sergeant Kups remain as well along with even more Bumblebees (Again, WHY?!?!). Of course, because Sergeant Kup and Rumble, plus a whole hell of a lot of others, still aren't listed on the Product Listings Page with actual pictures, I'm unable to post it so you can see on the front page of this site that these figures were spotted.

First Edition has finally arrived to Wilmington!

Scores of FE Vehicons and Terrorcon Cliffjumper, and pairs of Starscream and Arcee.

For the GDOs, they were well stocked on Wheelies, Springers, "G1" Cliffjumpers, Swerves, Megatron's and Terradives. Didn't see Hot Spot (to my disappointment) or Brawn. Did see something truly bizarre: Generations Junkheap! They only had one, and I hoped they had Black Shadow to even the odds on my shelf; none at all. Picked him up anyway, since I never did get Wreck-Gar.

They still have Wheelies? thats the only delux i dont have and would probably be willing to make the drive if i knew there were still some on the shelves.

Scores of FE Vehicons and Terrorcon Cliffjumper, and pairs of Starscream and Arcee.

For the GDOs, they were well stocked on Wheelies, Springers, "G1" Cliffjumpers, Swerves, Megatron's and Terradives. Didn't see Hot Spot (to my disappointment) or Brawn.

Yeah, I still believe there are several Wheelies left. I was there again a couple days ago to check if they still had MP Thundercracker, and there were like three or four of them.

Finally seeing Dreadwing and the Combaticons here in Concord. I picked up Dreadwing, but the Combaticons only seem to show up when I'm broke.

Good news for collectors in Wilmington:

There are literally CRAPTONS of FOC Soundwave and his merry men at the Toys "R" Us on Market Street.

Saw the Beast Hunters figures at TRU today. I wasn't expecting those to show up for a couple of months.

Forgot to post this yesterday, my bad. Saw Onslaught and a pair of Vortexes (got one of them) at the Wal*Mart near Monkey Junction, and there was a Brawl and Blast Off at the Toys "R" Us on Market Street.

Found wave 3 of the FoC figures at Wal Mart. That's another group of figures I wasn't expecting to find for a while.

Any Wilmington/local collectors having a tough time finding Swindle or the other Combaticons? Or is it just me?

For those interested in Beast Hunters, they've popped up in the Toys "R" Us on Market Street, Wilmington. Also sighted was Generations wave three.

Found a Vehicon at Ross today. So if you're still hunting for one check out Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls.

I have to agree. The looseness of his "knees" in robot mode have him collapsing backwards if not posed more forward. Then there's the immobile hips when in T-Rex mode. So as of now, my favorite Grimlock is Animated Grimlock. I'm thinking of adding him, Animated Snarl (truly Animated Slag), and Animated Swoop to my Classic/Generations. I'll eventually get around to kitbashing my two other Animated *Slags* into actual Animated Sludge and Animated Snarl to complete the five Dinobots.

Found only one at the Thomasville Wal-Mart SuperCenter today. Sorry, I didn't have one yet and so I bought it. I haven't been by the Lexington Wal-Mart SuperCenter since last Friday and their pegs and shelves were more bare than Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard then. However, since the T-Ville store got in some stock, there's a slim chance the Lexington location did as well.

Anyone in the Triangle area seen a Shockwave yet? I've hit up most of the Walmarts in the area and not a sign of it.

I found one a couple of months ago, but I've seen more pop up in the last week or two.
