There was a chromia in Seneca Walmart but it's been bought since I saw it.
I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.

I've had a lot of bad luck lately. I never saw Generations Deluxe wave 10 or 11 yet in my local stores and I eventually caved in and bought Brainstorm from Amazon. The Sumter Walmart still has 30-40 movie figures on the pegs so that could be part of it.

I did find one Alpha Bravo, but it looks like I might have missed the rest. I was able to finally pick up Firefly and Skydive from Kmart. They were $17.99 so I'd check other stores first as Walmart figures are about $3.00 cheaper.

Good news take away: Wave 1 combiner wars is out there so keep your eyes sharp!

HA HA this is my 100th post!!

Congrats on the 100th!

Have to keep a close eye... I am in the Anderson area. Last week I went out and was able to find the entire Wave 1 line. (Minus the legends.) This line has slowly coming into the state and I would expect as Wave 2 comes closer it will get more and more stocked.

Hasbro Toy Shop has been the place for me, along with Amazon.

If anyone really wants a lot of Insecticons I just saw 5 or 6 boxes at Kmart in Sumter. Another note I tracked down a Combiner Wars Megatron(silver) at the same store! I hope you guys have some luck out there.

I'm not sure if anyone knows, but Toy Nation on 107 Middleton Way Suite 11 in Greer, SC is open and is a vintage toy store.

I went in yesterday and he had a great selection of vintage to modern Marvel figures, MOTU, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, and of course Transformers. Great prices and good quality. I got a G1 sludge in great shape sans weapon for $40 bucks.

Transformers wise he had G1: Jetfire, MIB Trypticon, MIB Metroplex, MIB Sky Lynx, MIB Glavatron, complete Gnaw (fantastic shape) Onslaught, Grimlock, Swoop, Grapple, and several others.

He also has quite a few Energon, Universe (original universe as in BW repaints and the like),and Armada stuff.

Hey, noticed Sky Reign wave deluxes in Walmart and elsewhere. Has anyone come across a Sky Lynx yet? Sometimes I'll see the deluxes of the wave but not the voyager so I wasnt sure. Anyone let me know?

I found Sky Lynx in Anderson SC Liberty Hwy Walmart a couple weeks ago. (Seems to be one to a case...)
They still have most of Bruticus/Combaticons.

Have not been to Toys R Us in a few weeks... And the Target over here is pretty useless in most regards.

Live near Anderson? I'm in Oconee, we neighbors dude!

If you happen to see a Sky Lynx when you go out checking send me a PM, I'll do the same for you if there's something you're looking for that you cant find.

Hello fellow South Carolinians.

I have been slowly combing through my Transformers and other collectibles over the past several months and have made some tough choices (a few were REALLY tough) to part with a fair bit of my collection. The sheer magnitude of my Transformers collection is almost overwhelming so for the sake of space and focus, I have created a "Have" and "Want" list. I am giving you guys first crack to hopefully meet some of you out there in the state. I unfortunately have met very few serious Transformers collectors in my years in the hunt.

Unless noted the figures are all "case-fresh" or very nearly so in condition (C9+) and are factory sealed. I would prefer trades or trade/cash deals over just selling my Transformers but prices are listed. Prefer factory sealed but will entertain offers for good condition, complete, open Transformers with packaging in like shape too.

I would invite meetups as well. I am located in the greater Columbia area so I am centrally located in the state. Would be great to talk to a Transformer nut like myself. :BOT:
