Picked up a Chromedome and Weirdwolf at Apex Target. No other TR deluxes were there and I got the last of each of those two.

One of each Wave 2 TR deluxe spotted at TTC Wal-Mart, another gentleman picked up the secondary Mindwipe and Chromedome, leaving one full set. There was also one Sentinel and one Galvatron at the same store. Nearby Target had one Sentinel. TRU had the best find, for me anyway. As I was looking at the legacy Megazords, I picked up the last LE Dragonzord, debating if I should splurge on it, when I saw a large TR box behind it, which turned out to be a TR Blaster. I instantly put the down the Dragonzord and purchased Blaster. Additionally, I saw two Sentinels and two Galvatrons in the Transformers section before finding Blaster.

Motto: "When it comes to new figures the waiting is the hardest part."
I decided to go south for my hunting today first to York, SC Walmart. They had 2 TR Blurr and 1 Hardhead. Next we went to the Rock Hill Walmart on Old York Hwy and there they were 2 full sets of wave 2 deluxe. Needless to say they only have 1 full set now. They also had 2 Sentinel Primes and 1 Galvatron. I still have not seen any TR Legends or Titan Masters in my local NC or SC stores.I did buy Alpha Trion online today for $30 with free shipping.

Hit up most of the Walgreens in N. Raleigh, they all received Wave 2 TR deluxes but either they only got two per store and/or some systematically bought all of the Brainstorms, cause the maximum I saw at any store was 2 on a peg and no Brainstorms. WG on Creedmoor near 540 had 1 Mindwipe and 1 Highbrow, WG further down Creedmoor off of Millbrook had none, WG on Glenwood at Duraleigh had just 1 Mindwipe, and the WG at Brier Creek near Duke Health Raleigh had 1 Mindwipe and 1 Chromedome.

The Toys R Us over at Triangle Town Center has some of the new RID warriors (Scorponok, Powersurge Optimus, Quillfire). No Windblade though. Also they had a Titans Return Powermaster Optimus and Blaster.

Ack, don't do this my friend! Brainstorm isn't out yet, for one. Not in the cases with the others, will be shipped on its own, 8 per case. For another, Walgreen's doesn't stock toys by the case like Walmart/Target/TRU/etc. A case gets opened up at a distribution center, with individual items fulfilled in the single digits for any stores where the peg for the product is empty. What each store gets is completely random.

This may end up being different for Brainstorm if he gets his own endcap display like Namor and some past ML and SW Black exclusives of theirs have - in that case it's likely each location will get several of Brainstorm, alone.

Oh, thanks much for this! Found just the Windblade last week in Cary, will go today and hope that Scorponok and OP are still around :)

Went to Triangle Town TRU and was indeed able to get a Power Surge OP Warrior in red, and a Scorponok. Two of each of those remain. Also a few each of Clash of the TF Warriors Starscream and the white Power Surge OP. No Paralons at all, still, so I broke down and just ordered it online on their site. Same store had a couple Fort Maxes, two PMOP, a Blaster, and the Morbot/Quickshadow wave of Rescue Bots.

Went to Cary TRU today, they had about 4 RID Warrior Scorponoks, 4 Paralons, 2 Red Power Surge Primes, 2 Quillfires, One Thunderhoof, but no Starscream or Windblade. Picked up a Paralon b/c of his BW Scorponok style head. There was also at least 1 TR Fort Max (may have been 2, I was more concerned with the RID Warriors) and about 3 Galvatrons. Later I went to Think Geek store at Crabtree while my friend ran some errands. I had been wondering if they would ever reduce the price of their CW Victorion sets since they were overpriced and probably did not sell well at the inflated cost of $119.99. When I went in there was one left and the price had been dropped to $59.99. That was one of the lowest prices I had seen in a while and had been wanting it for a while as well, so I splurged and pounced on it. Amazon's cheapest was $72.00, HTS still charging $99.99 and ThinkGeek.com is charging $109.99, so I think I did pretty well.

1 of each TR Wave 2 deluxe at the Walgreen's on the corner of Capital Blvd. and New Hope Church Rd in Raleigh. $19.99 each is no fun but if you only need one or all, they're there for the taking! I'm sure they wouldn't have been were I actually there looking for them :lol:

I found a box set of Combiner Wars G2 Menasor with the groovy stunticons at the Wake Forest TJ Maxx for $39.99. It’s lacking the instructions, poster, and the lil card however. Apperently those instructions are printed on some real expensive paper. I took the only one they had but they did have a couple of Onslaughts and of course if one TJ Maxx had Purplejack and the gang then others will to. I hope I can find me a Superion with Bluebolt at another TJ Maxx.

One the two Walgreens closest to Southpoint mall had some Brainstorms. It’s the one in the Hope Valley Commons shopping center, the one with the Harris Teeter. After I got mine they had 3 left. They’re not hanging with the other TRs, they put the Brainstorms all together on a shelf mixed in with the other toys to the right of where Wolfwire and Mindwipe are hanging.

I've been out and about lately, but there's not much to write about!

If anyone spots the newest RiD Warriors in the Triangle area (Bisk, Ratchet wave) lmk :)

Got the last/only Stealthasaurus Grimlock at the Kildaire Farm Rd Walmart in Cary. They also have 8 Galvatrons thanks to a weird revision case being distributed that is all Galvatron.

Apex Target has one Bisk, one Scatterspike, and two Ratchets left after I grabbed a Bisk. They're also well stocked with Wave 1/2 TR Legends and Deluxes.

Combiner Force Legion Springload and Starscream at Cary TRU around lunchtime today. 2 of each there, I had just ordered em off Amazon yesterday, so I left them. There is a TRU tax though and they were $9.99 each.

Grabbed the one and only Wave 4 TR Deluxe at the Hwy 55 Walgreen's in Apex near Beaver Creek. They do still have four Hot Rods on the pegs if anyone needs it! $18.99 not very fun, but hey, I got paid today and wanted something new :shrug:

Sorry, I have not posted in a while, been busy lately, hunted for some other things like the Voltron Lions, but I have gotten back into the chase. 2 weeks ago I bought the two remaining Gnaws from the Morrisville Target. Last week I got the Wave 3 (not 5 as I first posted) TR Deluxes from 2 different Walgreens, all excluding Breakaway. Later I bought the Voyager Optimus at the Glenwood Walmart. As of Saturday there was one Optimus and one Megatron still left, though they are probably long gone. Today I found 2 Leader Six Shots at the Grove Barton Target off of Lynn Rd. I bought one and left the other. Quick warning, the one I left appeared to have chips of black paint or plastic on its right arm, so unless you feel lucky, you may want to wait for another one to appear elsewhere.

Poyner Place/Triangle Town area Target has next to nothing. However, I did return a Getaway to them today so if that makes it back out, it's there for the taking. It did nothing but get bought, sit in my car unopened for two weeks, then go back. Picked it up for one of the other podcasters but he didn't want it so back it went!

Found 1 Chromedome with Takara head at Cary Walmart, bought for the sheer oddity of this phenomena. Saw several other Chromedomes elsewhere but that was the only Takara-headed one in the Cary/ N. Raleigh area beyond those ScottyP. found. Also, yesterday the TTC TRU had TR Legends Bumblebee, Kickback and Gnaw, as well as 1 of each of TR Voyager OP and Megs. Subsequent visit today shows one Bumblebee and Megs remaining.

The NC Comicon this weekend wasn't bad for TFs, and infinitely better than two years ago! I only went home with a Universe 1.0 Ultra Magnus that was a great price at $60. Acme Comics brought some good stuff but I had it all already, same goes for the Galaxy Convoy that one dealer had brought.

I was going around with Razorclaw0000 on Friday and we randomly stopped at the Walgreens on Wake Forest Rd. (across from the New Hope Church Rd Walmart) and he was able to score a Kup! It's the only Wave 4 figure we saw at about four Walgreens.
