    Oh hell yeah - its a WV sighting....and no, I didn't find someone with a full mouth of teeth, if thats what you're thinking.

    Bridgeport Wal-Mart:

    Energon Unicron
    Alternator Smokescreen
    Energon Prime
    Universe Tankor/Obsidian
    Armada Minicons on clearance for $5
    Armada Jetfire/Tidal Wave clearance for $19
    (looks like a lil' ol' reset is coming in the next day or so)

    Bridgeport Target:

    Alternator Smokescreen
    Energon deluxes and basics
    Energon Tidal Wave
    Energon Ultra Magnus
    Energon Ironhide

    Bridgeport K-Mart:

    6 - 7 of the Prime/Jetfire Armada combo packs.

    Armada bonus packs (supercon/minicon team)

    No Energon

    Pretty stingy selection - needs a reset very badly.

    Last WV sighting for quite awhile, I imagine.....except for everyone sighting ME getting the hell outta this state tomorrow!!!

    Clarksburg/Bridgeport Wal-Mart:

    Energon Scorponok, Prime, Tidal Wave, Unicron, pegged tfs. Section looks like 100% complete, total crap. No Magnus there - seems to be shortpacked or something - lots of Tidal Waves floating around.

    Bridgeport Target:

    Armada PL Prime w/ Corona Sparkplug - $20
    Armada Tidal Wave - $12.49
    Armada Thundercracker - $9.49

    Lots of Energon Tidal Waves.

    Bridgeport TRU:

    Lots of Armada Unicrons (1 is loose & complete inside box - why they took it back is beyond me). Small amounts of Energon, lots of Armada. Still lots of reissues (up to date w/Smokescreen).

    Oh, and no KB g1 Spychangers to be found......big shocker there.

    TF G1 Playing Cards seen at Charleston Target. Anybody else seen these?

    About time I found this thread and realized that I wasn't the only WV TF fan. I be from Logan County, by the way. But anyways:

    I came across 2 different decks of these in the playing cards section in the toys at Charleston Target today. They were in red and black cases and each had their own transforming holographic card: Megatron and Optimus Prime. Sadly though, there are not 54 different TFs on each card (52 playing cards and 2 jokers), but rather 13 TFs that appear in all four different suits, but stay with the same number. Here's the list of the characters:

    Joker #1 - Autobot symbol
    A - Omega Supreme
    2 - Warpath
    3 - Scavenger
    4 - Smokescreen
    5 - Optimus Prime
    6 - Thrust
    7 - Soundwave
    8 - Perceptor
    9 - Kickback
    10 - Inferno
    J - Megatron
    Q - Beachcomber
    K - Long Haul
    Joker #2 - Decepticon symbol

    The best part is that you can get these at Target for $1.89 a pack. Since Optimus and Megatron were the only 2 different covers I saw, I got both. Anybody ever found decks with just Season 1 or 3 characters?


    And to Ironhide, Pinkdoors, and Roanoke Convoy.....any of you come acrross a HOC Optimus w/ axe, PLEASE help a fellow WVer out. :)

    Only 1 stinkin Alternator in town - @ TRU. And its Smokescreen.

    TRU didn't have jack for selection - tons of Armada, and the same old, opened box, loose-inside Unicron I saw last month when I was here. Sad situation. But if you're looking for Armada Smokescreen or Cyclonus, this is the place to be - they have 9 pegs full of them....and only them.

    Clarksburg/Bridgeport K-Mart:

    All Jetfire/Prime combos are GONE.
    Fair bit of Armada left - minicons, PL Red Alert, PL Jetfire, Tidal Wave.....
    and Armada Megatron. Go figure. Also had a good bit of the Bonus Packs (supercon w/minicons) - Hot Shot and Sideways w/varied minicon teams. Very little Energon.

    Wal-Mart:

    wiped out selection on everything that is Energon - several Primes and Deluxes left, but other than that, looks like a tornado touched down there. Armada minicons on clearance $4, Double packs $7, PL Jetfire/Tidal Wave $13, Scavenger/PL Red Alert $11, and Jumbo ass Prime $21.

    Now hopefully this doesnt get deleted again.

    Found Energon Megatron At Wal-mart in Crosslanes Wv. Only had 2 ,and I bought one. Also they have the Spychangers 2 packs.

    Wal-mart in Charleston Wv, has the Universe Prowl, Sideburn, and Ruination figures, as well as all new Energon figures.

    I found the KB exclusive Spychangers about 3 weeks ago, and just this past Saturday (3-27-04) I found at Charlestons Toys R Us the Ramjet with bonus Minicon Set. They have about 4 Sets left if anyone is looking for it.

    Clarksburg/Bridgeport K-Mart:

    Good bit of Armada on clearance ($10 PL Red Alert, that dumb dinosaur looking thing, about 10 supercons), Lots of Prime/Jetfire exclusive sets at $39 clearance. Plus, $7 combo packs of Armada supercons and minicons. Oh yeah, and 20% off all their tfs can make some of that stuff a pretty sweet deal if you need it.

    Clarksburg/Bridgeport Wal-Mart:

    35 Energon Megatrons. No kidding. 35. About 10 20th Primes (grey and black gun), Universe ultras (whatever the big ass sized ones are) are $12 and change on sale, down from $20. Tons and tons of transformers in 2 sections in the toy department.

    Bridgeport Target:

    Messy toy section, though nothing new. TONS of alternators, though.

    Bridgeport TRU - had some 19.99 reissues (Tracks, Streak, Inferno, Grapple), and 24.99 Skywarp. Rodimus and Dirge in house also. Good bit of full priced armada supercons, and only armadacrons in stock.

    Bridgeport Waldenbooks - G1 and Armada sticker boxes ($4.99 each)

    Report from WV:

    Lets see -

    Princeton Wal-Mart didn't have jack....about 20 alternators, which was both disturbing and at the same time impressive, but only Smokescreens and Sideswipes.

    Summersville Wal-Mart didn't have jack....though they did have 20th Prime for $40 on clearance - the second lowest price I've seen on the big fella.

    Weston Wal-Mart didn't have jack.

    Bridgeport Target didn't have jack.

    Clarksburg Wal-Mart didn't have jack - about 30 Energon Megatrons at full price, though.

    Clarksburg K-Mart didn't have jack.....though they still had Armada PL Red Alerts and minicons, and a few of the Prime/Jetfire packs.

    Fairmont Wal-Mart didn't have jack.

    And lets not forget the Bridgeport Toys R Us - who of course, didn't have jack, either. Still had some Armada max-cons, Armada Tidal Waves, Armada-Crons, and overpriced selection of all things G1.

    Who do I have to threaten/mutilate to get some new alternators or a shockblast? Who!?!?!

    Can't wait to get back to Virginia......
