    The new marvel x-men wave with the 3 versions of dr strange and whatnot seems to have shown up. Full wave at target monroe. TF wise they have wave 1 TR deluxes and galvatron and sentinel prime. TJMaxx has several CW onslaughts and scattorshots. Walmart monroe has pretty much their full christmas toy setup done in the garden center. They also have the dr strange marvel wave and wave 1 TR deluxes, but no voyagers.

    Wal mart on galleria blvd near matthews has the new rid warrior wave with windblade, scorponok, and whatnot. 3 figures left from the marvel dr strange wave. several sentinel primes and galvatrons.

    Ollie's matthews - several sdcc gi joe sets. A slew of aoe voyagers- drift, evasion op, grimlock, and slog. I picked up the only 2 MP grimlock's. Keeping one, will let the other one go for cost which is 35.99+ tax which totals $38.60 if willing to meet at a public place in indian trail or matthews. If no one buys I'll post when I return it.

    So I returned the extra MP grimlock I had to ollie's matthews after no one asked for it, but someone right there was like "i'll buy that!" So it's gone again.

    So this is my fourth straight post in this forum.... anyway Wal-Mart indian trail put out a bunch of transformers. Voyager-wise roughly five or so galvatrons scattered among both sides of the aisle. A whole bunch of wave 1 TR deluxes. 1 each of TR leader PMOP and Blaster. Then roughly four pegs of full of RID warriors including Bisk, windblade, scatterspike, ratchet, and a bunch of others.

    Selections have been so poor over the last couple weeks, there really has been nothing to report. I check 4 Targets a TrU, and two Walmarts multiple times a week and I still can't even get wave 2 Titan Masters.

    I need Mindwipe, Highbrow, Astrotrain, and Alpha Trion but they're nowhere to be found in stores. I did get lucky and find a Wolfwire in a Walgreens, and my friend found a Chromedome for me

    Not sure where you're at in NC, but there was a Mindwipe at the Walgreens next to Acme Comics in Greensboro as of Wednesday. I'd just raid all the Walgreens or wait for a wave 2 restock on the Deluxe/Warrior class ones. As for the Voyagers, I'm not sure what the hold up is. Wave one hit stores back in July. Then again, wave 1 of the leaders just recently hit.

    TRU Gastonia had the Deluxe Wave with Wolfwire looked like the entire wave, a couple steps. No MP Grimlocks at Ollies Gastonia, but 5 full cases of aoe movie voyagers.

    Holy moly. I don't check that much. That's awesome! What's in wave 2? I've probably seen it. Is it like apeface and whatnot? I have to apologize I don't keep up with anything smaller than a deluxe.

    Ok I'll keep my eyes open for them. I know I've seen them at least once or twice at a target. But it was like two weeks ago, so I don't remember which one. I luckily have found wave 2 deluxes a few times, but astrotrain still seems to be a ways off unfortunately.

    I was on a road trip yesterday and saw the apeface/brawn wave of Titan masters at a walmart somewhere in the middle of SC. Does that count? Lol

    Where is this bargain hunt you speak of? It sounds like a magical place. Need to see if my spidey 3 pack is still within return period...
