    Ok, the Statesboro Walmart just caught up on like 5 months of Alternators. They were down to 2 Smokescreens (I think they have been there since the beginning), and then Silverstreak popped up one day. THey next day, there was Hound, Dead End, Tracks, and Meister 1 of each! Even though I have them all, I wanted to buy one just out of excitement.

    found, Omega Sentinal, Beach comber, Grimlock and swoop, and wingsaber today at walmart..


    Khols has the Battle in a box figures, Sadly No longer on sale for 16.99. I think 26.99 is to much to pay for armada repaints. So ive not bought them yet.

    Those are still there?!?! I remember when I walked in there a few months ago I saw nothing but Sideswipes. At least 25 of them. Statesboro is an hour west of Savannah, like you are going towards Macon.

    Ginrai, where are you located.

    Nothing extremely new here. They are back to the 2 Smokescreens, so here is hoping for the Grimlock/Swindle case coming in soon. It would be nice not to have to keep buying these on line.

    I am also at the mercy of the gwinnet county scalpers.....They are really as thick as thieves here. I, however, think I know which Wal-Mart you are talking about. You might want to check it out today.....I was just there and they were unpacking a whole lot of toys. (I'm guessing to gear up for the black friday) I going to hit it again after work to see what was unpacked.

    I too am going to be at their mercy this weekend. I am going to be up in that area Wed to Sun. The only thing I care about though is Alternators, and there haven't been any USA sightings of Grim or Swin yet.

    i found Energon Galvatron in dekalb county today. Didnt pick him up. as i was there for somethign else.


    IF any of you need the Micromaster constructicon, the KB toys in stonecrest mall has about 4 complete sets. at 20% off each as the store is going out of buisness..

    also, The reasons the scalpers are So bad in gwinnete county are, in No real order


    Comic universe, Titans games and comics, Galactic quest, TnT toys , Magic of collecting, Odins cosmic Bookshelf, and Billies Toys And house of anime

    None of them Really carry the new transformer stuff. But for a County to be able to support 4 comic book stores, and 4 Specialty toy/anime shops. the Poppulation of Collectors is Insanely High in the area.


    Im lucky i dont Live in gwinnet county. Im farther North than that.


    Btw, Did any of you come in the Winn Dixie in Monroe Ga last .. Saturday whereing a Transformers the movie Tshirt? If so. That was me that said I liked your shirt.

    here we go

    So like the good little geek boy that I am I head on into Wal-Mart this morning to pick up my copy of the Extended Edition of RotK. With movie goodness in hand I figure I have time to swing by the toys on the way out. I notice a stack of the new red Alternator's packages so I rifle through them.

    I picked up Grimlock and Swindle.

    This appeared to be a fresh case there were six total. Two Tracks, two Meisters, and one of each of Grimlock and swindle. If you are missing the other two they should still be there. This was at the Wal-Mart on 124 in Snellville. Did I mention that they were in the car row not with the transformers?

    BTW: has anyone spotted the TRU G1 reissue Sideswipe in GA?

    I found Grimlock, Swindle and Meister at the Zebulon Road Wal-Mart in Macon. There were multiples of each.

    The Wal-Mart in Lawrenceville has Grimlock, Swindle, Meister, and Tracks right now. At least one of each, so if you need them hit it. Good luck...

    Sorry.. not a sighting. I'm looking for some help from people in the Atlanta area. I'm going to be down there for Xmas and I was hoping someone could point out any good stores with Star Wars and/or import toys. I almost went to Cloud City Collectables last time I was down there, but I wasn't sure if they had an actual store. Any help would be appreciated.

    Guess what I found?!?!?

    I was out with the Wife after Church yesterday at the Target in Snellville. I checked the toys not really expecting to find anything new (just some clearenced stuff) when I spotted a stack of new Alternators. I picked up the Windcharger but left Grimlock and Swindle. It would appear that new things are beginning to trickle out.....Happy hunting.

    Dangit! I've been I go to all the Walmarts and Targets in Lawrenceville and Snellville regularly and I have yet to see any of the new Alternators in stock.

    However, I was at the Walmart in Lawrenceville (off Hwy 29) yesterday and they've gotten a whole shipment of Energon 2-packs at huge discounts.

    I got Perceptor & Divebomb for $6.94.
    And Rodiums & Prowl, and Hot Shot & Starscream for $9.87 each.

    They also have Scorponok & Landmine for $26-something. I'm debating on this one since I only want Scorponok and I figured if I waited long enough, I'd find one on clearance for $10-15.

    Other 2-packs include Snow Cat, Arcee, Inferno, Signal Flare, Strongarm, Demolishor, Battle Ravage, Cruellock, Energon Saber, and several others.

    I read in the TF News forum that there are also 2-packs of Jetfire & Ironhide. Has anyone seen any of these at Walmarts or Toys R Us in the Atlanta area?

    Sonds of crickets chirping...........

    That is about all I hear around the TF sections in my neck of the woods. After I found Alt Windcharger, it has been a total wasteland. There haven't even been any good sales on old stuff...Not to metion that the mere sight of seeing unloved Alt Silverstreeks sitting on the shelves makes me very sad...
    Oh well................
