    I haven't seen any wave 4 Titan masters around Raleigh. Too many Overboards.

    A couple Sixshots and broadsides at Target Northlake.

    That said I personally think Broadside isn't that good. Bought one and promptly returned him.

    I agree with you about Broadside. I bought one that had horrible stickers that got caught inside joints. The figure itself felt a bit cheap. I also returned it. I've been disappointed with every TR voyager and leader I've checked out.

    Target Rivergate has 3 leader Soundwave, 1 PMOP (head is loose in box), several deluxe Hot Rod and Triggerhappy, 1 Kickback, most of the new GOTG wave, a few Voltron limbs, and the new 40th anniversary Star Wars black series figures in the end cap near electronics (no R2D2 or Han). Darth Vader with the cardboard display is being held at the electronics counter. He's supposed to get an individual release later without the display ($20 vs $40).

    One Broadside and a bunch of Wave 3 deluxes at White Oak Target. I've been on the fence about Breakaway but decided to pick him up.

    Durham TRU had TLK voyager Grim and Prime but wouldn't sell them. Sucks!

    Target kanapollis has about 1/2 a dozen broadsides and some wave 3 deluxes and 3 leader soundwaves.
    They also had some new spider-man homecoming kid's figures, some kind of action vulture and spidey, but nothing else of note.

    Hey guys! Native MN visiting Charlotte on a work trip - is it worth trying to hit up the Target and the Walgreens nearby? I'm looking mostly for Wave 4 deluxes. Thanks!

    I found topspin at a walgreens in university area about a month ago, and there was another one there a week ago. That's wave 4 right?

    Targets around here have wave 3 deluxes, lots of broadsides, and the very occasional sixshot. Sky Shadow's just recently been spotted but is not widespread at all.

    Walgreens is the only store where wave 4 has been spotted, and they're highly hit and miss - you might get lucky at the first walgreens you to and you might go to ten of them and find no wave 4.

    My recommendation would be hit the closest one maybe two walgreens but that's it.

    Thanks guys! We were gonna hit up a nearby walgreens after work anyhow, so that'll work. Hopefully I won't just find Quakes.

    Well, I had no luck at the few places I was able to hit, but Charlotte's pretty neat!

    Saw this; I got mine from The Chosen Prime and it didn't have one.

    It's been years since I've been to Retro. Anything else worthwhile besides old G1s?

    Nice Toyworld TW-02 Orion, suppose to be getting in a TF Collection in the next week. They are under new management, inventory seems to be turning over faster and getting some different stuff in.
