Did a pretty long haul today. Was ok I guess.

NH Target: Nothing much of note. Some decent clearance stuff I suppose.
Townridge Walmart: Skip it
Lynn Rd Target: Had some of the Silver Knight OP/Grimlock two packs on 30% off clearance if you never picked one up.
Brier Creek Target: Nothing TF wise. Did have that SW Black Stormtrooper/Biker Scout Black set clearanced for $35
Apex Target: Grabbed last each of CW Thundercracker and Windcharger, same as BC Target otherwise
Cary Walmart (small one off Tryon): 5 Brainstorms. They're in the clearance section for no good reason, NOT ON THE MAIN TF AISLE! They are NOT on clearance, that's just where they're located.

Found the Combiner Wars deluxes at the White Oak Dr Target in Garner (the one next to I-40) at 8 am this morning. They also had the 3-step Hyperchange RID figures.

TTC TRU in Raleigh has the Combiner Wars legends, the only new thing they had on the shelf aside from the 3-step Hyperchange and 1-step Change RID figures

Found Generations Arcee and Chromia at the Morrisville Wal-mart on Hwy 54 off of I-540. They had two of each, bought both Arcees and one Chromia. For anyone curious, the Arcees are both the open-hand version.

It's the same as the previous Generations numbers I'm afraid.

Oh ok. I don't have that one anymore though since they were popping up everywhere last year and I didn't have to really hunt.

I saw Brainstorm once in Concord, but it looked like it had been returned. The figure was loose in the box and it wasn't taped up. I decided to pass on it since it might have been defective or missing pieces.

Nope! I am seriously tired of looking for him and the combiner deluxes. I'm about to hit ebay and the online stores. Though I'm hoping there'll be another huge restock on Brainstorm like what happened with the other voyager waves.

I haven't seen much of anything lately. I saw Windblade and Jetfire once at a TRU Express at Concord Mills, and I haven't seen them since. I haven't seen Arcee or Chromia yet, and I haven't seen any of the Combiner Wars figures either.

I made a few rounds in Raleigh the past few days-

TTC TRU and Target - nothing but some movie-related figures
Lynn Road Target - same as above
New Hope Church Rd Walmart - nothing that isn't commonplace
70/Glenwood Walmart - they had one each Alpha Bravo and Skydive which I picked up and a few Dragstrips

Found the Combiner Wars deluxes at the Indian land Wal Mart on the NC/SC border. Thanks to new friend and fellow collector I met at TRU Pineville yesterday. Congrats again on the new baby!

I just got Skydive at the Concord Mills Walmart. It seems we're finally catching up with the civilized world.

Yeah I see we are. I check that Wal Mart whenever I'm down that way. Alot of times getting gas up the street. But I went back to that TRU and lucked up on the whole new Avengers MLs. No new Tformers but hey still left satisfied. The Targets on Rea rd. and South Blvd. didn't have nothing new. But the one at midtown did have a Combiner Wars Optimus left. I don't care for him so he may still be there. I ended up ordering Silverbolt.

Just got mine in the mail today. He's worth the extra $7 I would've spent in gas and taxes anyway. Cost me $32 shipped.

Knightdale Target has all the latest Rescue Bots stuff if you're into that. Salvage is way fun at least? Other than that, haven't seen much lately that would interest most collectors. Combiner Wars is MIA in Raleigh. Thank goodness for the internet!

Oh hey, it's been a while since I've posted here.

Here in Wilmington, Generations: Combiner Wars is slowly starting to trickle out again. Walmart on Market Street had two Dragstrips, while Target has two Dragstrips, Alpha Bravo, and Skydive. They were still there when I left both places tonight. No sign of the Voyagers.

Raleigh/Triangle Town TRU this morning - no Megatrons or newer RiD. Even the Angry Birds TFs had been completely picked clean. Some CW Dlx Wave 1 though.

Cary TRU this afternoon - picked up the last Armada Megatron. No others were there. Also had plenty of CW Dlx Wave 1. And bought an Angry Bird TF OP Racetrack, which I'd never seen before. Back by the videogames.

Sorry, I beat you by about a day on getting the G1-style CW Megatron at the TTC TRU. I stopped in on my way to work early yesterday and lucked upon him. It probably helped that it was snowing out and not many people were out.

Today, I stopped at some Targets looking for wave 2 RID warriors and the Big Hero 6 steelcase exclusive (zero luck on both fronts). The Target at the corner of HWY 55 and 540 had two full sets of wave 1 CW legends, the Cary Target had a Bombshell and Powerglide, and the Knightdale Target had 2x of the wave 1 CW legends except Powerglide, only one of him.

Target by Triangle Town was a disaster zone last night. One Fireflight if anyone needs it.
