    Wave 2 is in North Alabama. Specifically, the Super Wal-Mart in Huntsville, on University Dr., has Rodimus, Prowl, Snowcat, and the basics. No Landmine at the time.

    Also has the exclusives; Universe Prowl, Sideburn, and the Ruination giftset.

    I have also spotted Alt. Sideswipe at Toys R Us.

    Not really a figure sighting. Didn't now where to say this. But I found (like I really care...) Transformer Armada DVDs at RITE AID in Birmingham Alabama of all places side by side with the Where the Red Fern Grows 2 DVD set! Heavens.

    I've seen ONE Silverstreak Alternator about 3 weeks ago after hitting over 5 Wal Marts in the past MONTH. I bought it 3 weeks ago, but I've yet to see another one. Was bought at Wal Mart on Hwy 280 in Inverness. We came across FINALLY Crowned Starscream PVC (found 3 so far). My couins has found the ONLY Alternator Hound that we know of in all of the metro Birmingham area. Mirage is still a bit hard to find. (Did buy mine). Insecticons are fairly found, but rarely Arcee. I've seen about maybe 5? Arcees in total from the Hoover, Roebuck, Trussville and Gardendale Wal Marts. I've bought 2, and my cousin bought 1. It's now JULY and NOW Sideswipe can be easily found. We see more Smokescreen shelve warmers than anything, which may be the cause for not putting out newer Alts in our area. TRU is the worst. OH! A friend told me he saw Omega Supreme at the TRU in Hoover earlier this week!

    How is this considered "spam"? I was noting sightings of the Armada DVD in an obscure store (Rite Aid), Transformer PVC sightings and Omega Supreme sighting, but I'm seeing him only at Targets right now.

    The post was not in reference to you. The poster had posted some inappropriate material and the moderator made that note as a warning to him.

    North Alabama update:

    The Target store on University Dr. in Huntsville now has the Energon Roleplay toys. Plenty of Optimus Blasters, but only 2 Megatron Swords left. They also had a couple of E.Omega Supremes. Also, they had Universe Whirl(because I got the last one) and a couple of the Stockade/Magna Stampede 2 packs left.

    Nothing else new to report, no new Alternators, nor Energon figures.

    I just came back from Target in Birmingham, AL where I found a whopping 6 Universe Nemesis Primals. I only snagged one, so there are still plenty left.

    Also worth noting is that I have found Alternators Hound...well over a month ago. I spotted him at the Wal-Mart on Hwy 280 in Inverness. It's the first and only one I've seen at retail. Yeah, I know, I don't know how I got so lucky either. I must've helped an old lady cross the street that day or something to build up some karma points. :buttrock :

    I bought one he he thanks Rayne! Only ONE left now! Well, probably none left now.
    Did see Omega Supreme in the newer packaging at the same Target. Sorry 'bout the above confusion. I feel much better now! The gestalt contest had me busy for a while....

    Alt Hound sighted at Wal Mart on 280 and 150 in Hoover.
    I found Omega Supreme in the new Powerlinx box at Target in Trussville a week ago.

    Well, looks like new TFs are finally starting to hit in Birmingham. And when it rains, it pours. Last night, at the Trussville Wal-Mart in Birmingham, I found a plethora of new goodies:

    1 Snow Cat in PowerLinx packaging
    1 Demolisher in PL pkg

    1 Hot Shot repaint
    1 Downshift
    1 Tow-Line

    3 Universe Strika
    3 Universe Fireflight w/ minicons

    3 Alt Hounds
    1 Alt Dead End

    Although, needless to say, Dead End is long gone and sitting on my entertainment center. :tongue:  :thumb :

    Still, it's nice to finally see some new stuff start to hit the shelves. Now if Shockblast would ever show up... :banghead: 


    P.S. - for anyone interested, they also had a ton of new SW OTC figures as well.
