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

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.
