    Lawrenceville Suwanee Target by AMC 18 has 2 SS Grimlock, 2 Ratchet, 2 Stingers, and 2 Dreads.

    Still looking for Blackout in the Gwinnett area. Still on the fence. Might just wait for the Weijang Upgraded version, because I can't have a Blackout that is shorter than ROTF Leader Starscream. Would like to see in person though before I make my decision. Maybe pick one up for Alt mode.

    How cheap are they? That TRU still closing?

    Also did you check the Target close by?

    $29.99 before whatever the current discount is. I did not go to the target.

    If they make one.

    I was able to score one at the Buford Target. You have to be sure to hit them on stocking day.

    Robot mode is great and bulky. Though it seems to me the ankles and legs couple be a bit tighter. And this guy is pins only. No screws to tighten up. And alt mode is HUGE!!! If they do come out with an Weijang an it is oversized, he will take up some space.

    Hi everyone! I've been living in North Carolina for nearly a decade, but I am a couple weeks away from moving to South Carolina - a part of South Carolina that is 20 minutes from Savannah, Georgia. Are there any comic/toy/collectible shops in the Savannah area?

    We've got routine stuff, Targets, Walmarts, a dying ToysRUs... of note, there's a place called Planet Fun on Broughton Street that has old/second-hand Transformers.

    Taureanstar,

    On top of what Xelotah mentioned there is also another place called Misfit Toys just south of the Savannah mall in Georgetown. It's not as large or as well stocked as Planet Fun, but they carry a lot of boxed Transformers, Star Wars, and GI Joe if you're interested. Some loose stuff too. Between South Carolina and Savannah you also have Rincon and Pooler. That gives you two more Walmarts to add to your search area. Both Rincon and Pooler are growing rapidly so I would not be surprised to see more places open up for collectors. Welcome to the area!

    Thank you two! I'm looking forward to visiting all the places you've mentioned once I get settled in. Looking forward to being in the area for sure.

    The big Target over on Victory has the first Premiere Edition Leaders I recall seeing... one each of Grimlock and Blackout.

    We were at the Savannah Mall Target tonight, they had Grimlock and Blackout as well. Not much else besides POTP Deluxe and Primemasters Wave 1. Walmart over in Pooler had many of the Studio Series wave 1 deluxes, but no Voyagers.

    Think I've seen the voyagers in lots of random places, if you care.
    ... I'm not paying too much attention to the Studio Series line at this point.

    I'm not a huge fan of the movie line, but I do like the Starscream. I was a fan of the deluxe mold he's based on and like the improvements they've made. I may have to pick it up when they drop the price a bit.

    Sounds like it's time to add Ollie's back to my hunting grounds! Mind if I ask the price?

    Are there any stores in Georgia that sell third party transformers? In the Atlanta area?
